|Flezz grinding as a hacker?|
Okay, so I’m level 30 and have completed all the missions. I’d like to make a bit of flezz. What is the best way for a hacker to grind for flezz?

Level 35, Geronimo grind.
Or make an alt which isn’t a hacker.
E4HamBanner: Grind forums for rare .moar files and sell them for good prices on Kyoubai. Takes a bit of time, but rolls in a large amount of flezz after a while.Chawin edited this message on 06/24/2009 12:56PM

Same way as other clbumes. Take jobs, pwn different forums each day (the highest level you can maintain without draining too many consumables), get your Frugality to 10 while selling your deliveries in the Ppwne Shoppe.
Chawin, your advice is not useful, nor is it accurate. Grinding the same forum repeatedly does NOT maximize your flezz intake.MC Banhammer edited this message on 06/24/2009 12:52PM

MCB’s advice is solid and the best long term strategy.
Geronimo is the exception due to the .moar files that drop there, but only if you are planning to grind for months. It is becoming less and less profitable though as those files are seeded into new forums, and as more players complete their gear.

Thanks a lot! Does Frugality only matter up to level 10 when selling items? And would adding more luck past the 60 or so I get with hacker items have an effect on how much flezz worth of items I get for pwning the same forums?
And… hmm, sorry, maybe I should just keep it simple and ask “how should I arrange my stats?”

Yes, it only helps for selling to have frugality at level 10. Any more is wasted. You should not need to put any upgrade points into it. You can easily and cheaply get .moar files to cover the 10 points when you need to sell.
It’s been awhile since I was level 31, so help me out. What are your current upgrade points spent on and what equipment do you have?
(This is scully again, btw.)

I’m a 35, but I’ll post my upgrades so you can see where to go.

As a Hacker, I need the ego to absorb the hits from high level forums I can’t one-shot. The points on luck and defence are there because I didn’t have 3 for another offence point.
This is what to aim for (although scully may have other tips). It’ll take a lot of flezz and/or a lot of grinding to get all of this though.

Ahh, I see. I’ll reset my stats as soon as possible and focus on an offense-heavy build. Thanks for letting me know frugality caps at 10 for selling, I did not realize that!

Sorry about the Wall-O-Text there, for some reason the spaces I put in weren’t recognised.
Edit: And yes, Hackers need all the Offense we can get. Since our attacks are pretty weak, the more the better.Sarcasm Inc edited this message on 06/25/2009 8:19AM
