Gold is the primary currency of Gransys. It is used to pay for most items and equipment, and for most services. It can be earned from quests, selling items and is found as loot. While much of the equipment sold by vendors is expensive, Gold is relatively easy to come by.

Buying and selling

  • Some Vendors, such as Fournival, will provide a discount on their items if the Arisen helps them with their quests. Gaining high Affinity with NPCs will often provide the chance for Escort Quests, or for rare items obtained as reward or gift.
  • Discounts are offered at certain shops when anyone within the party carries one of the following items: Wyrm Hunt License (5%), Badge of Merit (8%), Bronze Idol (10%), Silver Idol (20%), or Gold Idol (30%). Idol forgeries provide the same discounts as the authentic corresponding idols of the same color. When carrying any combination of these discount items, only the largest discount is applied. Discounts do not stack with multiple items.
  • The Augment Suasion increases the amount of Gold gained for items sold by 15%. The effect stacks (multiplies as a percentage), so a full party where everyone has Suasion equipped, will sell items for a much higher price than usual.
  • Having a Ring of Thrift in the Arisen's or Main pawn's inventory will also grant a 15% bonus to Gold earned when selling items. The bonus effect does not stack on the same character, neither with another Ring of Thrift nor with Suasian equipped; the Ring is a substitute rather than a supplement for the augment Suasion.
  • Some time-sensitive items actually gain value over time. For example, Carrots and Twigbeans become moldy after three days in the inventory and then are worth far more than originally purchased for, since they recover more health.
    • This increase in value formed part of a money-making exploit which was patched in June of 2012, limiting shopkeeper Iola's stocks to a maximum of 99 carrots with a much reduced rate of resupply.

Acquiring Gold

  • Quests are the main source of coin. Particularly those quests that reward weapons, such as Golden Weapons, are worth taking on for money.
  • Gold can be found in chests, or dropped from enemies in the form of Coin Pouches. There are four different pouch types:
    • Small Coin Pouch containing 100 Gold
    • Coin Pouch containing 1,000 Gold
    • Large Coin Pouch containing 3,500 Gold
    • Giant Coin Pouch containing 10,000 Gold
  • In Hard Mode, regular enemies will drop Giant Coin Pouches with great frequency in Gransys, but not on Bitterblack Isle. Thus killing minor enemies in Gransys is a rapid route to wealth when playing on Hard Mode.
  • Farming the offline Ur-Dragon can also be a very efficient way to accumulate Gold, assuming the party is capable of killing him safely and quickly. Each kill has a guaranteed reward of 20 Wakestones plus a holy enchanted weapon. With Wakestones having a base value of 30,000 Gold, and the weapon commanding about half a million Gold, over one million Gold can be earned from a single kill without even counting the sale of Putrid Dragon Scales and other item drops, or using the augment Suasion.
  • Alternatively fighting the online Ur-Dragon can be a source of riches - use of a single Maker's Finger against a heart destroys it, and does enough damage to gain the highest non-kill rewards (ten items) - selling these, which will often include holy-weapons can net millions of gold per arrow.

Notes

  • Gold may even be used as a weapon: Throwing a Coin Purse of Charity at an enemy will deal large amounts of damage, and uses up to 10,000 Gold in a single strike.
  • The maximum Gold that can be held by the Arisen is 98,999,999. If the Arisen is within a selling menu and has items that sell past this amount, they'll be greyed out.  The Arisen and party can continue collecting Coin Pouches from the ground after they reach the maximum amount, but that Gold is lost.
