Why do people farm plat just to get a high pixel number?

Its bad to share knowledge because you just create competition, so most wont tell you jack. Really you just need the initial fund 5k-10k, to get to a place where you can buy expensive items in EC tunnel. Buy low and sell high an be very patient, thats it. Getting the initial funding usually need to find those perfect easy solo named camp items you can turn an sell quickly in the EC tunnel. Farming plat off mobs should only be till 30th level or so, then you need to dig deep into the wiki's (Guk, Splitpaw, Mistmoore, quest items) to find good named camp magic item drops to sell to others, that's how you get rich. Of course you better be playing a class that can solo, usually int caster, that's why you always start with int caster to gear the rest of your alts an make cash. They are cheap to play, other than buying an researching spells, you can play them naked an still be an effective solo'er. For instance a 30th level int caster can solo camp the Ancient Croc in upper guk naked, great exp for that level and that drops wis legs worth 1-2k or int arms worth 200-400pp, non lore so you can stock up with multiple of each item. But sometimes you can stay 4-6 hours an get 0 drops, or you could get 5 drops, this server drop rate is VERY sketchy at times. So 6 hours you could potentially get 3-5k worth of items, there is no plat farming that could match that. Very easy to make an alt int caster w/ pet, each has their own wheel house on effective soloing, chanter, necro, or mage. Of course the higher level the int caster the more you can make because you can camp better items that sell for more money, like a 50th level necro in Lguk. When you loot your 1st FBSS or get 7k-10k, then you market FBSS, you get 100k market fungi tunics, 200k+ then you can market manastones. Based on your current cash you adjust to that level of item to buy/sell, always shooting for the highest level items as those will sell the fastest. I've probably made 50k so far on green, mostly tied up in items now. I farmed plat till 12-15k, then it was all item camps after that. Very few players on green have 100k+ right now due to how new the server still is.

Seems like main way people get rich on this server is by doing the following

>Be a 60 Enchanter
>Have no job/no life
>Sell MQs or poopsock camps
>Tunnelquest all day
How else do you expect to get rich? In real life, the main ways to get rich are to inherit a fortune, win the lottery, organized crime, or work an extremely high-paying job. If anyone could do it, everyone would be rich. Same goes for EQ.

Most lottery winners are bankrupt within five years.

You are extremely misinformed and spreading terrible information that sounds like every liberal idiot that thinks anyone who makes real money is evil or just lucky. These are certainly not the 'main ways' people get rich. You'll almost never 'get rich' working for someone, either. Those 'high-paying jobs' are very few and far in-between and the bachelor's degree college education you pay for for 20 years of your life most likely isn't going to get you there. Try starting/buying/flipping a business, real estate investing, long term portfolio investing, or creating a product people decide they can't live without. Those are the 'main ways' to get rich, as you say.

controlling your expenses plays a big part of it
