    If you've done these missions and followed the advice, you should have a nice starting budget for planet calypso.

    Personally i would advice to deposit a bit so you can keep more loot in storage so you can sell it later for a higher markup, selling everything to the trade terminal is always a loosing path.

    And most importantly you've learned patience, the most valueable skill in Entropia

    Amen to that. If I were to add a suggestion to make use of that patience, it would be to get yourself hurt/killed by mobs for some time (as long as you can stand it ), to gain Evade.

    Interesting. I just recently finished some new player testing of my own and was preparing to write my own report about it.

    Seems I was beaten to the punch.

    We did things slightly differently, but basically the same as he reported.

    Our grand total was very similar as well, however there's a very important detail the OP's not mentioning:

    Some players might see this as (and have done) a way to get "free peds". Just making throw-away newbies.

    However, the mission makers seem to have already considered that. There's so much "walk here", "visit over there", "come back and grab part 2" that time is an important factor.

    The amount of time it takes to make that 56 "free ped" (factoring skills) is a long time of playing.

    Any RL part-time job would give you more money than the $5.60 in "free ped" in the amount of time it takes to get it ingame.

    A poor paying job gives ~$5/hour IRL. After a single day of working, even factoring taxes, etc. you make enough to deposit more than you can make milking a weeks worth of throw-away accounts.


    To new players:
    Start the game and use the new missions for their intended use: learning the very basics of the game, plus get a small "starters pack" of funds/skills. Then deposit and keep learning/enjoying the game.

    To old players:
    Don't bother trying to milk the newbie missions. The time factor will screw you. I promise.

    something i tell people when they ask for ways to make free ped is that you could probably make "free" peds faster collecting soda cans or empty bottles to return (depending on your location) than you would in game.
    that said, for some people it is part of the challenge they set themselves, to "beat" a difficult game in "hardcore mode".

    Here's my mentoring website:

    I made an effort there to sum up all the free stuff a disciple can gather, including all the free missions that don't cost ped on calypso, and rewards you get from other planets newbie experiences.
    some info is a bit dated but feel free to copy some stuff.

    also need to keep in mind that many of those freebie peds are things that CANNOT BE TTed.
