Why an economy guide?

Well, I'm tired of wanting to find out how much something costs when I want to
sell it on the street,  I'm sure you all are as well.  So, I've created this
guide to help people out when trying to sell something.  Also note, if the item
is not listed here, it is just a normal item.  So sell it back to an NPC, or an
OC merchant if possible.  Also, I wrote this guide in 800x600 resolution,
normal font size.  If it looks odd to you, adjust your screen accordingly.

Also, this guide is not guaranteed to be 100% Accurate.  Prices vary depending
on location, other Merchants in the area, current demand, or just gradual
changes in the market price.  This guide is simply a rough estimate if the
selling price.  The economy of course, changes often, so if you see a price I'm
way off on, Email me.

One final note - I play on the Chaos server, not Loki.  So thats what these
prices are based on.  I'm sure Loki's prices are somewhat close, but they
still may be different than what I have here.

About Ragnarok Online

Ragnarok Online is a MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer RPG) made by Korean company
Gravity based on the Ragnarok Manga by Lee-Myon Jin.  It is a rather lengthy
download for dial-up users, but should not be too long for Broadband users. 
Theres also a LOT of patches that have been released.  At the time of writing
the game has had 100 patches.  No, I didn't type that wrong.  100.  They are
all relatively small, and install very quickly (just overwrite the files) so
it's not a big deal.  After downloading the client from, go get the patches.  ROs auto-updater will do
just fine for that.  Also, if your on dial-up, this game can be a painful
experience.  If your on a 56k modem, you should be able to handle it.  If your
on anything less, you might as well not bother.  This game is a bandwidth hog.

These are the most commonly acquired items.  90% of them you simply sell to an
Overcharge merchant or NPC for money, do that if they are not listed here. This
includes the Gems and Yellow Gemstones.  However, some are rare, and can be
sold for some money.  Most of them are the ones that can be sold for only 1z

In a later update to RO, you will be able to put cards in weapons to give them
special attributes.  When this is actually enabled, the prices of these cards
may fluctuate greatly depending on their use.  For now though, the general rule
is that the harder the enemy is, the more their card sells for.

to him what was up.  He assured me he did not mean to steal my name, and has
not read my FAQ.  He was actually quite cool about the whole thing, and was
wondering why some people called him Weggy ^_^.  Anyway, he is a red haired
merchant, whereas every one of my characters but AllAbootTheZenny have blue
hair.  He seemed like a nice guy, but thats still not me ^_^.
