This article contains information for players of The Mana World.

This article is for reference purpose

The features described in this article are already implemented in the game. The article should describe how a certain aspect of the game currently works. You may of course edit this article to improve the description of the circumstances. Your opinions or improvement suggestions about the described aspects themself are of course appreciated, too. But please put these on the discussion page of this article to keep facts and fiction separated.

Because TMW is smaller and more personal than many other MMORPGs, the structure of the economy is slightly different. There is a player market for monster drops as well as for items that cannot be obtained in the game.

As an aid for player to player transactions there are two bots in The Manaworld that provide as a chain element between trading partners, these are ManaMarket and AuctionBot. To get money independent from other players it is possible to sell monster drops to NPC shops that are scattered over all Continents. Any shop will buy everything at a fixed price!
Most of the items in the ManaWorld come to a use as you progress or later in the game, which means that only those items that are worth a good amount of Goldpieces and reasonably easy to hunt or obtain should be sold to NPCs.

Rare items

There is a tiny economy growing around items that are no longer obtainable in the game. Some players specialized in buying and selling unobtainable items to make a living. For details see Rare Items.

Jack'O drops

These items are dropped from one of the most powerful monster in game, Jack'O. They are not rare drops but are difficult to be obtained due to the difficulty to kill this monster. These items can be bought or sold at around 3,000 GP.
