Best way to make money?

Can anyone tell me if I make more money in the tier 2 clockworks then I do in tier 1? Since I can't really see any difference in the amoun of crowns I get.

It's not much - depends on your luck/levels. I'd say do jelly king runs - they're usually good profit (6-7k guaranteed, again depending on where you start if you use "join party," what levels you get and your luck with the loot)...

Jelly king? Where do I meet that boss? Keep in mind that I only just got access to tier 2 about 2 days ago, and my equipment is 2 star equipment.

Jelly king is in the "royal palace" or whatever - the pink castle icons on one of the gate maps. Right now it's the black/white "knight" gate I think. Just ask people in game, it's one of the most popular boss runs due to the good heat/crowns.

It's in tier 2, second stratum (towards the end of tier 2) so it will be difficult with 2 star equipment. IDK to be honest, I've gotten good crowns from some gates even doing tier 1... if there are arenas, just do tier 1 runs maybe... or snarbolax (if you want the shield - the other items are not worth it imo).

Well, so far tier 1 runs seems to be the fastest and easiest way right now.

In general, the 2nd stratum of a tier yields much higher heat/crown then the 1st one. The idea was basil being the primary reward of getting to the terminal, and crown/heat being the reward for doing a full run of the tier.

If u can do tier 2 runs or arenas which can give lots of crowns if u can manage to complete the whole arena..

A better advice is to ad lots of people as friends so u can join them in the later levels of either tier 1 or 2.. That way u get more crowns out of each 10 ce per elevator ride.. u can combine it with jelly if u want but then make sure that you join it at level 14 to get 3 jelly gems for defeating Jelly king..

Entering the later levels is without doubt the best way of making money..

When you join from level 14 there is plenty of monsters wh could drop vitapods which are larger then the levels before so that is very wrong..

He means Royal Jelly. In the Royal Jelly Palace. Check the gate maps, look for a Slime themed Stratum 4.

Incidentally, I wouldn't recommend it. Royal Jelly is the cheapest boss short of Lord Vanaduke. I have 4 star armor and I still lose to it more often than not.

You may want to put off fighting Jelly King until you have at least some 3 star equipment. You can always leave before the boss level and still should make quite a bit of CR.
