[Note: Starlight Garden is no longer farmable so is the Heart of Merka dungeons as for now please help yourself with the help of guilds since there's really no farmable place besides VN.]

This is just some reminders, but please read the in-game rules and also the forum ones.
1.1 Stuff you need to know
-Google about a class you want to play.(Know your role and etc./Play style/Possible Skill/Gear Builds)
-Don't buy a costume if you're undecided on the class you want to play.
-Join a high level guild(for better guild perks + veteran knowledge)
-Always ask nicely and don't beg.
1.2 Leveling and Gearing
Visit the NPC Sherleen(Item Trial Shop)for cash item rental and get the Last Hope equipment from Blacksmith.
= That person always standing near a fountain.(Found at Carderock/Ironwood/Mana)
Where to level:
Note: Before you head out, go and buy the 500% EXP Scroll from the merchant. You can get gold from your mail.
Mana Ridge - Cloister Gate - Marion's Hall(Master Mode)
Ironwood Village - Gale Woods Temple - Ancient Temple Excavation Site(Master Mode)
Note: Do 1 dungeon only
After that, head to Crystal Stream enter Raider's Rock and select Valley of Mourning(Abyss Mode) then once you level up go to the north of Calderock Pass(Ashen Ruins) then head for the Catacombs Sanctum Access portal and do Astral Coven Lab(Abyss mode) until you hit level 90.
Once you reach Lv.90, head back to Carderock Pass then warp to “Arnenne(Ticket Office)” then head to Saint Haven.
Note: STARLIGHT GARDEN IS CURRENTLY BUGGED
It is now recommended to do Loffy's Dice Dungeon(Bottom Right Screen -> Dice Icon) since it does give good stuff like Lv.90 Dragon Expedition Plates and Lv.90 Epic Plates.
Coma Set = Mostly recommended for support classes
Obtained from extracting Felis weapons.
Talk to any Priestess of Darkness -> Nightmare Shop
Head to any blacksmith and use the Extractor/Disassembler.
Planet/Meteor/Comet = Recommended for DPS classes
Obtained from Volcano Nest(Comet can be obtained from the end dungeon chest, it's very rare though)
Craft by talking to any blacksmith and choosing the "Craft" option
Currently, you can farm level 80 plates in Heart of Merka(Master) - 1 plate per run
Because you can't farm Exquisite Altheums there either, you can just farm for Superb Altheums and trade them for Exquisite ones in any general merchant but we all know it's better to trade it in Kelly because that's the nearest one.
Tip: It’ll help if you have Golden Goose VIP.
1.How to get Golden Goose VIP?
=Farm Golden Goose Badges in fast and easy dungeons in Carderock(master mode)
2.Where is Priestess of Darkness Rosetta/Mocha?
=Mocha is near West Gate near Terminus Gateway while Rosetta is near East Gate near mailbox.
Refer to this guide: http://bit.ly/25KDs8o
-How do I get full inventory?
=Go to any General Merchant(Kelly/May/Doris) then buy the inventory and storage expansions.
Note: Buy the 2nd one for each expansion, the 1st one only unlocks 5 slots. (They go for 200g ea)
2.1 Gold Farming
An earlier gold farming spot has already been stated, which is Starlight Garden if you can’t do Volcano Nest yet. Which is basically just running around collecting stones.(Don’t fight the bosses unless you’re hardcore)
As for the actual gold farming spot, it's still Volcano Nest since the gold drop didn't change.
VN also drops Festival Jewelry and 50 of Festival Jewelry can be used to exchange for the 150% Abundant Talisman in Sherleen which will give you tons of gold. Farming VN is pretty much a win-win, but the thing is.. you need a good/geared/experienced party. Even if the boss' hps are nerfed, it still punches hard.
If you're a dragon nest vet, you can aim go and aim to clear BDN HC but of course get yourself some friends or train your guildies to do it.
An alternative way of gold making is selling Exquisite Diamonds(Arendel->Right Path->Path of Hesitation(Hard/Master)
-How do I get to Volcano Nest?
=Garden of Eternity Lv.80
-How do I get to Starlight Garden?
=Go near Saint Haven East Gate then head to Terminus Gateway, select 1st option and go inside.
