How to Make a Lot of Money on CityCraft Survival

Postby SUPERSLAYER44 » 05 Nov 2012, 05:02

Hey there Citycrafters, Im SUPERSLAYER44 and Im gonna share some of my tips on how to make good money.

1: ENCHANTMENTS
This one is something very hard to do, but it brings in money like nothing else. I know it is extremely hard to sell your favorite sword or your only set of diamond armor, but it could be the first step to making money. Sell EVERYTHING. Every echanted item you get, sell it. But when enchanting items there are three rules:

1) Only enchant items at level 30. You will make more money selling one Protection IV chestplate than you will selling 3 low-level enchanted tools.

2) Only enchant diamond things. This difference between a Efficiency IV Diamond Pick and an Efficiency IV Iron Pick is about $5000. Don't waste your xp on anything but Diamonds.

3) Be VERY careful when enchanting certain things. Items such as swords, shovels and bows are VERY hit or miss. Things such as picks and chestplates are almost always moneymakers. A level 30 enchanted sword could be a smite II bane of arthropods IV, which is worth about $2,500, or it could be a Fire Aspect II Sharpness III, which could be $20,000. A level 30 enchanted pickaxe gets either Efficiency or Unbreaking almost ever time.

Also, be careful when buying on safetrade. Just because something is fire aspect doesn't mean you will make thousands. Make sure you will definately make money of reselling it. Also make sure that the tool is not used. You can repair it in the spawn using the repair signs near the guy named "Blacksmith". For more information on enchanting tools, click here.

2: MINING

Not only will mining bring in a lot of money, it will bring in a lot of XP. Ores that do give XP include Coal, Lapis Lazuli, Redstone, Emerald and Diamond. Ores thay do not give xp include Iron and Gold. Make sure that you have a fairly empty inventory when you start mining. Take a pickaxe, a shovel, a workbench, a stack or two of cobble, some torches (not all of your torches) and some food. Be sure to head home when your iventory starts filling up with lots of good stuff. Theres nothing worse than filling up with diamonds and other good stuff and dying when you fall in lava. BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL AROUND LAVA. When mining obsidian, check to see if there is any lave under or to the sides of the obsidian. Obsidian will make you more money than anything else.

3: POTIONS

Potions make a LOT of money. They are relatively difficult to make in the beginning, but it gets easier. You can commonly buy 64 blaze rods of safetrade for $100. Make some brewing stands (duh). Buy 64 soul sand and 64 netherwart and make a netherwart farm. Then you are good to go. The potions that draw in the most money include Invisability, Night Vision, Regeneration, and instant harming. To learn more on how to make potions, click here.

4: RAIDING

Raiding needs to be done properly in order for it to be successful. Be sure to find someone in their faction base. Sneak up on them and kill them. Keep killing them as they tp to the /f home and eventually the faction will lose all its power. At this point, you can claim the factions land, which destroys the /f home, therefor making the base yours. Everything once owned by the faction belongs to you. DO NOT join a faction, raid them, and leave. That is a bannable offense. Also, if you find the coordinates to a faction base using /f map these can be sold for a good bit of money as well.

5: VOTING

As most of you probably know, you vote for every website on survival you get $3,500, 14 levels of XP, and 7 CC tokens, as well as a pink rank color as shown below -
[U]qSam - User
[M] AsDemonsLayDying - Member
[T1]Nibink - Tier 1
[T2]GaZzWaRs - Tier 2
[T3]Cote -Tier 3
[T4]SuperSlayer - Tier 4
[TM]PC_J_Law - TrialMod
[Mod]USMC_Bearjew - Moderator
[Admin]Naraten - Admin
[Owner]Joe - Owner

Having the pink next to your name gives you /smite. The free 3.5k is always good, and the 14 XP is extremely helpful in getting a level 30 enchantment. Vote for Citycraft here.

6: PVPing

PVPing in the spawn isn't exactly a jackpot, but it is fun and it brings in some money. The best thing to do is drink an extended time Invisability Potion and sneak up on someone and attack. Do not hold an item in your hand when walking up to them, and wear no armor or else they will spot you. Do not sprint while using an invisability potion as well for they can see the ground below you when you sprint.

7: Donating

This one TOTALLY depends on how much disposable money you have irl, or whether or not you are allowed to donate. With donating, depending on which tier, you can sell the 4 slots you recieve with your donation for in-game money. These can fetch in game money worth up to:
Tier 1: $15,000-$30,000
Tier 2: $40,000-$80,000
Tier 3: $150,000-$300,000
Tier 4: $300,000-$600,000

For more information on what you can get with these tiers, go Here.

I really hope this helped everyone! Things like these helped me get every single tier in 45 days! If you have any questions, I am probably not the guy to ask, PM me or ask me ingame, or ask any of these people!
