Instructions on how to make a lot of rubies fast!

Thought I'd share something i noticed.

For some reason Compact Scope B (beta) sells for 1100 more Rubies than Compact Scope A (alpha) even though they are made with the same materials.

After you finish the side quest Emergency Call-Up! on Chapter 7 (See The Pants Party's guide on Side Quests to find out how), the Traveling Merchant in the Waterless Bridge on Level 8 sells you more items. Including the materials for Compact Scope A/B.

If you buy 1x Scrap Iron (200 Rubies) and 1x Glass Shard (150 Rubies) you can craft them into a Compact Scope B in Ebel City for 3000 Rubies. Then turn around and sell it for 4100 Rubies. Yielding 750 Rubies in profit!

I'm currently making trips back and forth between Level 8 and Level 4 with 999x Scrap Iron and 999x Glass Shard. Every trip nets me 749250 in profit!

This method helps a lot if you don't want to waste all of your hard earned Rubies on the Shopaholic achievement. I personally used this to make enough money to buy materials from the traveling merchant to craft 999x Hand Grenades and Molotovs. Hope this helps some people!

Might be worth noting that she isn't always at the Waterless Bridge. I think she's only there from 6-9 or something? I'm in 10 and she's gone. Not sure if she comes back or moves elsewhere or what, haven't found her.

She goes back to Forsaken I think for a few chapters. I'm in 14 now and she's back at the waterless bridge.

Edit: err....scratch that. She's actually hopping back and forth between them for me. I can get her to appear in Forsaken by resting at a nearby terminal or entering and exiting till she's there.

Pretty easy to make these trips though. :P

Ah, forgot that's where she came from originally. I'll check when I get home if she's there.

It may not be an "exploit" in the traditional sense.

Most money exploits tend to involve load/save tricks or duping a bugged item to sell it over and over.

If this was real life you could just be seen as a crafter, taking raw materials crafting something and selling it for mark up.

It's not in the spirit of the game since not everything is the same way but it atleast uses in game mechanics w/o load-saving tricks etc.

So she's at the Waterless Bridge from 6-9, Forsaken from 10-12 and back at the Bridge from there in case anyone can't find her.

You dont have to wait until chapter 7, you can Start this at Chapter 6.

Also, you really should do this in the earlier chapters because in the later chapters her location seems to change with the time of the day, forcing you to rest a bunch of times to get her to appear.

Also you might want to clear out all the Hex's on the level she is on so you can use your save terminals to teleport you back to your base.

This may be a dumb question, but how do you use a save terminal to teleport to your base? the only options i get are Rest / Save / Dismantle.

Hopefully this won't be considered as a necro, but I did not want to create a new thread, after searching and finding this one.

I am now on chapter 16, and am grinding the arena before attempting Neverland. I am low on grenades, and wanted to buy some scrap iron. However, the lady is not at Waterless Bridge *or* Forsaken. The game is currently stuck on Day (I take it that this not a glitch, as some of the people standing around comment on it).

I cannot seem to locate her elsewhere. Does anybody know where she is during Chapter 16, or is she unavailable? All help much appreciated, and apologies if I am being really dense here!!!

Thank you *so* much for that! I think that I have a vague recollection of the place that you mean, I will check it out for sure.

I can second that

I also found this guide late but this is great - it will help me enjoy more of the game (crazy customization, etc.) and with way less grinding, which is always a win. Thanks much!

In the US NTSC version she shows up at Forsaken (LV 6), Waterless Bridge (LV 8), and Tower of the Righteous (LV 11).

It is actually possible to use this 'trick' at any time however you are restricted to looting the items off enemies - I am only on chapter 5 but am utilising this every time i go back to Ebel City with whatever i have managed to loot
