It is often said that one can make it in Achaea without spending real money. Well, I lack the necessary survival lessons to make fishing profitable, definitely lack the lessons to ever think about deep sea fishing, and lack the levels/artifacts to make bashing profitable (though I am working on this). Judging from most discussions, it would seem like the best approach would be quests.
However, I have no idea how to make questing profitable and, more importantly, how to go about learning. So I'm curious: what is the best way to actually learn where good quests are and how to find them? What are some of the was people have used to do so?
