No Longer Playing Mabi
Thanks for visiting my page. As of June 2011, I am no longer playing Mabinogi.
Acquiring Iron Ores
Are you training Refining, and collecting Iron Ore Fragments takes ages? If your Metallurgy rank is low, Iron Ores are the way to go. A typical run through Barri Normal will net 60-80 Iron Ores. Just make sure you have room, since Iron Ores take up four times as much space as Iron Ore Fragments.
However, higher Metallurgy ranks will give a better yield than what you would get from running Barri. Since having high dexterity makes Refining training more difficult, it is recommended to collect Ore Fragments using an alt character with high Metallurgy and Production Mastery ranks.
Feeding a female spirit bow for strength
The most cost-effective items (measured by gain over cost) to feed a Spirit Weapon seem to be the cheapest ones. But at higher levels, the small gain you get from these cheap items isn't worth the time spent starving the ego.
For strength training on a female spirit bow, I've found Daggers to be the ideal balance between cost-effectiveness and time-effectiveness. Anything cheaper doesn't provide as many strength points, and anything more expensive isn't as cost-effective.
