Notes

  • Gold generated from this effect are received immediately, meaning the enemy does not need to be defeated to receive the coins and players can run away if need be.
  • Boss type creatures (Chimera, Cyclops, Drake, etc.) can continued to be hit for coins, even after death during the decaying process.
  • Olra and Barroch are unkillable NPCs, as such can be continuously hit for infinite gold.
  • Using Skills such as Great Cannon or Stone Forest also generates 5 G per Hit, further increasing the Gold gained for each Hit.
  • Considering the initial cost of this item when purchased from The Black Cat, it takes a total of 69100 single strikes from Royal Alms for it to pay for itself. It might be better to consider the special effect as a nice bonus, as there are much better ways of farming gold.
  • Don't be fooled by the low base stats, Royal Alms is the 11th strongest Mace when Dragon Forged, and can remain a viable weapon throughout the course of the game. It's heavy weight (the heaviest Mace) is offset by its strength and unique magic enchantment. If it doesn't do much damage, you'll spend more time hitting enemies and gain more gold, thus you benefit either way.

Royal Alms demonstration

One can use the same technique against Death to make money with Olra (or Barroch) and a Royal Alms mace. While the Great Cannons and Abyssal Anguish certainly aren't necessary here, the player can strike Olra (or Barroch) an unlimited number of times to earn unlimited amounts of Gold. This is an interesting but dull and inefficient means of earning. Each strike will yield 5 - 25 Gold, amounts which do not increase when the Royal Alms mace is Enhanced, Dragonforged or Rarified.
