Anarchy Online is an MMORPG that was originally released in 2007 by Ambush Studios. It is the brainchild of Colin McRae, whose previous work includes the legendary Neverwinter Nights and its sequel, Icewind Dale. Anarchy takes place in a fantasy world called Lore, which was originally inspired by Renaissance Italy and the works of William Shakespeare. The player assumes the role of an outlaw in the game, roaming the land of Lore searching for jobs and adventures.
Anarchy Online is free to play, but an optional cash shop called the Market exists, which allows players to purchase cosmetic items and special weapons. These items can then be used to further equip their character and customize their look. Since the game’s release, there have been several different ways for players to earn money, ranging from regular side-hustles to crafting products and trading with other players. Here’s a guide to make some extra cash on Anarchy Online in no time!
One of the simplest ways to make money on Anarchy Online is to become a merchant. All you need to start selling your wares is a storage chest and some basic clothing. People will come to you with offers to purchase your goods because you are the only trader in town. When a customer buys something from you, you will get paid a small commission.
To become a merchant in Anarchy Online, click on the ‘Shop’ button when the game loads. This will take you to a screen where you can select your goods. Click on the ‘Shopkeeper’ button to the right of this screen to open a chat box with the market’s computer system, Nootra. Type /merchant to get started.
As you can see in the image above, the market is open 24/7, so you can always log in to make money. Additionally, you are not bound to the market. You can move to another town and start selling your goods there as well. The amount of money you can make in any given day depends on many factors, including the demand for your goods and the price you set. The higher your selling price, the more you will make in a day. You should also note that more expensive items will bring in more customers, allowing you to make more money. In general, it is best to set your price fairly high to start with, as this will usually lead to more sales.
Another way to make money on Anarchy Online is to become a blacksmith. The ability to craft weapons and armor allows players to increase their chances of survival in a fight. When in a fight, the first thing you want to do is equip yourself with as many weapons and armor as possible. As a blacksmith, all you need is a furnace and some good iron. After reaching a certain level, you will be able to craft better materials, such as gold or diamond ore. When in a fight, type /blacksmith to get started.
As you can see in the image above, the blacksmith screen gives you a selection of items that you can craft. When you click on the ‘Craft’ button, you will start a crafting queue. After your current inventory is empty, you will be able to craft the item that was brought up in the queue. You can also click on the ‘Equip’ button while in a fight to wear the armor or weapons you are making. It is also possible to unequip items by clicking on the ‘Unequip’ button while in combat.
In addition to creating equipment, you can also utilize your blacksmithing skills to upgrade your weapons and armor, enhancing their stats. When you reach a certain level, you will be able to upgrade swords, axes, and staves to make them stronger. Additionally, you can upgrade your armor to make it better defense against an approaching enemy. Upgrading will generally increase the price of the item, but will make it worth it in the long run.
Yet another way to make money on Anarchy Online is to become a pirate. Pirates’ main source of income comes from capturing other players’ ships and obtaining their goods – usually gold and other money. In general, the higher your level, the more you will be able to capture. To become a pirate, click on the ‘Pirate’ button when the game loads. This will take you to a screen where you can select your ship. You will also have the option of choosing a crew, which you can populate with up to four other players. The more people you have in your crew, the better, as this will increase your chances of winning the occasional fight. After you pick a ship and crew, you will have to spend some time training to increase your combat skills.
When you reach a certain level, you will be able to attack other players’ ships and rob them of their gold and other goods. To start attacking other players, you must first ‘flag’ them. When you flag a player, you will enter a 30-minute timer. If no one attacks the flagged player during the time period, you will have to wait 30 minutes before you can flag another player. You can also choose to ‘defend’ yourself against attacks. This option will decrease the time you have to wait before you can flag another player. You should note that defending yourself will also cause you to temporarily lose the ability to attack. During these 30 minutes of defense, you must remain in combat and protect yourself from harm.
If you want to make a living off of piracy, the best thing to do is attack ships that are a lot larger than yours. Larger ships can hold more treasure than your average player-owned vessel. The reason behind this is that large ships usually carry more valuable cargo, which can be improved upon, giving you a higher chance of making a profit. Additionally, attacking a larger ship will usually result in you capturing valuable items, providing you with more funds to spend on more gear and upgrades.
Last but not least, we have the farmer. The basic idea behind this side-hustle is to grow a variety of crops, breed animals, and sell the milk and other goods from these creatures. To start farming, you will need a farm and a decent selection of seeds and animals. To select the seeds that you will need, you will have to examine the environment around you and pick seeds that grow well in your area. You can also click on the ‘Sell’ button when you are in a town to make money from the items around you – usually food or fiber. You will then have to feed the animals to allow them to produce milk and other goods. When a cow or other type of animal gives birth, you will be able to sell its milk and other goods at a higher price. You should also note that the more you feed an animal, the better it will perform and the more money you will make.
As you can see in the image above, when the game loads, you will have the option of selecting either ‘Sell’ or ‘Farming’ from the bottom right corner of the screen. You can also click on the button to the right of the screen to chat with Nootra, the market’s computer system, and set your daily budget, which will adjust your profit accordingly. Setting a daily budget allows you to have a set amount of money you can spend per day without worrying about going over. This, in turn, will allow you to play more freely without worrying about money.
Making money on Anarchy Online doesn’t have to be hard. There are several different ways for players to make a buck. Some of them, like the blacksmith and the pirate, require a lot of work but can be highly rewarding. Others, like being a farmer or a merchant, are more passive but can be made easier with a little bit of hustle. All you need is a storage chest and some basic clothes, and you can be selling your goods in no time!
