    Where do the bandits spawn in Bangor? I waited till 6pm in game time and nothing happened. I had registered my character and picked Bangor as my location but nothing appeared.

    When trying to turn in red badges to receive a box, Naco tells me that I'm 'not on the list.' I've already completed the daily quest and turned in the required badges to Nico in Tir Chonaill so now trying to get my daily 3 boxes. I have 26 red badges.

    I did this event last time and I'm using the same character this time.

    What do I need to to do be able to turn in my badges to receive the boxes?

    Edit - I figured out that I need to turn in the badges at the same location as the daily quest.

    They appear a few further north of the Bangor moon gate on the east side before the path way to Gairech

    Sell your trade goods in batches of 5k profit.
    PROFIT, just to emphasize.
    Not total ducats, but profit.

    Trading is where I get a majority of my red badges.


    Like if I were carrying 50 items, and each had 500 profit, that'd be a total of 25,000 profit.
    I could trade it all at once for 3 badges, or sell 10 at a time (5k profit) five times and get 5 badges.

    Is there an easy way to determine if what you carry will bring at least 5k profit to a destination(s)?

    The math I do is:

    (Item Quantity x Sell price) - (Item Quantity x Buy price)

    For example (including the 1% discount), for Wagon (non-rental) you can carry at most 45 marble at 364 Ducats each, which in total costs 16,380 ducats. One destination will buy it 100 ducats more (464 ducats each), being a total of 20,880.

    Say you wanted a batch of 1k profit for skill training, and there's a profit of 4,500 total when you reach your destination.

    The way I tackle it is lower the quantity for both Buy (when starting commerce) and Sell (when you reached your destination) portions of the equation until I get close to 1k as possible without going under the minimum profit batch.

    In this case, I would sell Marble in batches of 10 for 1k profits each, but coming to that conclusion may not always be easy and will require some time to punch in numbers over and over until you get a satisfied number, going through ranges of 100's or 10's before going to 1's.

    Is there an easier way to do this so you don't waste time and risk having the prices change on you while you're calculating?

    Like to know myself since I got DC'd due to a channel crash in Ruairi. I still have the event daily for Tir, but I'm not able to complete it (nor has a Give Up option).

    While I do have the option to trade the red badges for 5k ducats each, gonna stock up on them just in case I can do the event the next day... however if I'm unable to do the event at all... then no sheep for me then. :(

    Can I just state that, I know it's easier to get Bandit Badges by using Final Hit when the mob spawns, but I don't think it's fair to other players to do so? I've had this happen multiple times, and, it prevents other players from getting more than one badge from the boss. I've even changed channels because of this... I'm not trying to be too rude, but, it makes this event less fun if only one person gets every badge from the mob.

    Sorry about this... I didn't know where else to put it.

    Same here. All the humans with final hit killing everything

    Just use chainblade its every races new final hit...

    Is there even any benefit to finishing the guy off? I only ever seem to get 1 badge regardless

    You get 1 badge when you hit him.
    Killing him drops literally nothing.

    Before you sell to the trade post, there's red numbers at the far right of the name of the goods, which indicates the profit. Then I take note of the amount I bought. In order to determine how many of the goods will give you a profit of say, 5k, I calculated like this: 5000/profit

    So say you bought 90 alchemy crystals, which has a profit of 200 ducats each, in order to sell in chunks so that each chunk has a profit of at least 5k ducats = 5000/200 = 25. So, 25 alchemy crystals can net you 5k profit.

    Wrong... he dropped common leather once. :P JUST SAYING! :D (but yeah you don't have to kill him, just attack him... he does make a good training farm though!)

    I'll test out that theory... thank you.

    Question: what if in the case of it not being a whole number? Do you round UP or DOWN?

    Always round up. So if you need to sell 8.7 items to get 5k, sell 9 items otherwise you'll fall short.

    Nexon can't make one quality event these days. And they keep bringing back the worst ones too. What happened to Iria treasure hunt? The treasure box event? The 4th of july boxes? The events that got you good stuff without you having to spend $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ on the game?

    It really sickens me to see the developers continue to let this game drown when KR and JP seem to have their s*** together just fine. I've played this game for 10 years and I've watched it continue to slip down the hole. New promotions along side every single event is really starting to get on my nerves.

    What I really wish the devs would do is stop making updates altogether for a couple years and just run their dumb promotions in the mean time so they can update the game to an entirely new engine. But you know, that'll never happen. Lol

    Edit: a server merge would be nice too, but all the whales would kill each other because they're not the biggest fashionogi anymore which Nexon is scared of them ragequitting and losing money.

    Great wall of Crap.

    I bet you're one of them. lol

    And who in particular am I insulting here? Nobody is coming up with actual disagreements other than "wow you're mean". Yeah, it gets old when you see your favorite MMO turn to garbage over the course of 10 years. It's not like I'm trying to attack these people for how much they spend on this game. I'm only stating that if the servers merged, they would probably not be happy with the fact that they're no longer the #1 Fashionogi. The other part is the markets. People don't want the economy to be healthy because it ruins their monopoly.

    This game has some of the most fun combat mechanics in any game I've ever played, and my frustration stems from the fact that Nexon is just letting this game die. They import the updates from Korea but don't really make an effort to advertise this game or try to reel in new players. I mean, when was the last time you saw an ad for Mabinogi anywhere?

    Maybe we should try to stay on topic... ^^;
    If you want to discuss something other than what this topic is about, make another forum, or join one of the many other similar threads.

    --
    I haven't personally gotten anything good from the boxes, wanting to get the carpentry bench for my husband. So I just decided to enjoy the extra 30% to commerce, while also collecting some badges for the event.

    Anyone get anything they wanted from the boxes yet?

    Final Hit? Just walk in and summon a Bone Dragon and you got the area cleared already.

    There are 7 channels and multiple spawn points......... just either change channels or change locations.

    We are, like. Several thousand players. Divide into 7 channels, 6 towns.

    I don't think that number equals said thousand players.


    Doens't help when each player is going to do it at least five this each to accumulate said 20 badges a day.

    I'll admit I was rather rude, but I get really irritated on this subject. There are so many things that can be done to better this game.

    And yeah, I joined this game in 2008 after seeing an advertisement on a private server website for RuneScape haha. They used to advertise this game and it was mega popular. I just hate to see one of my favorite things being milked for all it's worth when it can be rejuvenated to live again. It's popular and JP and KR. Why not NA? You know?
