I log back in and decide to visit Heine as I haven’t been there before, and the map tells me 38+ mobs can be found on an alligator beach. It is very pretty.
I port out and see some alligators.
They are BIG!
I haven’t seen any players in a while, though. It also occurs to me I have not gotten another drop or seen any quests that provide me with a gear upgrade. I hit 38, and get a message this time from Captain Gosta about another Kamaloka.
My inventory is overloaded with junk at this point so I clean out my WH and check the buy shops in Giran. The items do not show the NPC price on the items themselves so first I compare to the NPC shops.
Ori Ore: 1,500
Stone of Purity: 1,500
Coarse Bone Power: 750
Silver Nugget: 250
Braided Hemp: 250
Animal skin: 75
Animal Bone: 150
I have under 50 of each, in some cases only 3-4 of each of those items. I have 135k to my name right now.
I see in some cases, buy shops are trying to buy these materials for less than (or barely over) npc cost, such as a shop buying animal bone for 111 adena, stones of purity for 1,000, etc. That hardly seems worth it when it took 38 levels to only gather a few! I decide not to sell right now.
