I spend most of my time killing monsters for my equips. I'm kinda poor... only have maybe 6 mil and a lot of equips go for over a mil I think. Plus if I do it the old fashion way, I get some exp, but it does get boring after a while.
I too played on Bellocan. My main server where I spend most of my time. I heard its more easier to level now because back then oh man... haha. I haven't played but I did try out the new class that month Big Bang came out. I stopped playing a while back and around that time found myself getting more into fish keeping. Now, I'm adventuring into planted tanks, its still new to me.
