Start the game with the "-perf" command line parameter.
Enter the options menu and choose the "Language" selection. Scroll to the bottom of the languages and choose the "Bork! Bork! Bork!" language.
Make sure you have at least one open character slot, then create a new character. Once you are in the monastery, do the first quest until you get at least 50g to open your storage account. Once you have your storage account (which is linked with all your characters), do the first few missions with your new character. Do all the missions you can with henchs. Once you do as many as you can with just henchs, take all the gold you earned and deposit into your storage account. Then, log off and delete the character you just made and make a new one. You can do this as many times as desired and just keep depositing the money into your storage account so your main character can spend the gold from it.
Monastery Credits and Imperial Commendations can be exchanged for helpful items. Exchange Monastery Credits for experience scrolls and sell them for 100g each. Exchange Imperial Commendations for Superior Salvage Kits and sell them for 800g each.
The drop rate is determined by the number of Henchmen you have with you if you are the only player. Each Henchmen reduces the drop rate by one-half the normal drop rate. Therefore, with a group of seven Henchmen and you, the chances of getting a drop is very slim. Additionally, when you are with Henchmen the amount of gold dropped from the enemies is split up between all of the Henchmen and you.
Use the following trick to earn extra money and a lot of Luxon Faction quickly to transfer or trade in for Jadeite. Go to or get a run to Breaker Hollow and get five henchmen. Your profession will determine which henchmen to take. A good choice would be the two monks, the two fighters, and the interrupter ranger. Once you have the henchmen, go out the northern portal. Once it loads, go to the patch of green on your map. You may run into a small group of monsters; kill them and take their loot. Once you reach the green patch, you will notice that it is a hill. Go up there and be prepared to fight a group of three or four Oni. These are the only creatures that drop Oni weapons. After they are dead, go up the hill and look to your right. You will find a way down to an NPC that runs an Arena. You can fight there and get experience, 175 Gold, and 400 Luxon Faction. Take his challenge and you will go down into the pit. The enemies are easy, but they all have Resurrection Signet (thus the reason for the interrupter henchman). After you win, collect your reward and Map Travel back to Breaker Hollow. Repeat this to get a lot of Luxon Faction without have to spend time looking for a group for quests. There is always the chance of finding chests and gold items because of the low number of members in the party.
