Places to Get Gear and Materials

Helpful Tips


  • Check the Auction House! You can use the @ah command anywhere. Some players dedicate their time to crafting and stocking the Auction House for reasonable prices. The auction house has no limit on the number of items that can be sold by a single character.
  • Check the Library! A few custom shops have been added to Celennia Memorial Library zone. You can get there with @lib.
  • All Vendor Shops in Cities throughout the world sell different levels and types of weapons/armor/jewelry/crafting items. You'll find vendors in distant, other cities. For example, Khazam sells Lv. 20+ gear by default and plenty in other places. Other towns in the outlands sell spells and higher level equipment (Rabao).
  • The @shop command is upgradeable and sells tools, useable items, food at higher tiers.
  • It is highly recommended (but not required) that you level Thief for Treasure Hunter 2(45) or 3(90) Trait or sub it. TH+1 is also available for purchase as a cross-job trait. This will alleviate many frustrations with getting items from monsters. There is no cap on the amount of Treasure Hunter that you can gain through equipment mods and custom augments.
