Reduce amount of lake mithrils needed for 160 gear, its ridicoulous that u need 12 lake mithrils for full 160 set, no wonder why new players give up after reaching 155 gear...
buuuut it only costs 1,250 points for 1, in the item mall (68.75 US dollars)
or 650 IM when in the hot sale. ($35.75 USD)
that only totals: $429 -$825
so just dont pay your rent for the month... or dont eat food for a month...
I have a feeling they put the lakes like this to weed out non IM spenders.
they should drop in decent amounts from lvl 5 treasure maps or not?
Also friends of me used to run BF with alts to get from explo there,
never liked that method but seemed to work good.
FunofKing is my true hero
London dailies, it take a while but 900 adv voucher give 1, so do it with full team of alt, you get 2 from HI exploration, use the same alt and do it over and over again, farm Jamestown and new Amsterdam for cards and mobs, killing 2000 turkey, vutulre, the rhino, bears and so on, and sure, shit load of lvl 5 treasure map. i got some luck for to do uni and weapon, but now im stuck, i can't find them anymore, my hat is still at 155 and ill need some soon to promotes rest of my gears dang!
if you want the shortcut then sadly, its expensive as shit in IM for them, 650 when in sale.
ps : im pretty sure its already reduced, back in the day its was more then that i think
