How to earn money on Vox Populi
Tired of seeing “insufficient funds” whenever you want to warp or teleport? Do you need money for food? There are a few solutions for those issues and they are pretty easy. First of all what you need to know is that gold is money on our server.
1 Gold Nugget = 1 Voxel
1 Gold Ingot = 9 Voxels
1 Gold Block = 81 Voxels
When you earn money, it will automatically be stored in your /wallet. Money in your virtual wallet counts towards the balance on your person, as does gold in your standard inventory and ender chest. There are many commands that will calculate and tell you the amount of money you have on you in voxels: /balance, /bal, /money, and /m. When making purchases via the Global Market, auction, or the /pay command, the appropriate amount of gold will be pulled out of your inventory/wallet. Gold stored in physical chests, /chest, /bag, and the Bank will not count towards your calculated balance.
Some other ways to earn money include, but are not limited to, voting for the server at various websites, fighting mobs in the dungeons and the nether, and participating in server events.
Ways to Earn Money
Now when it comes to earning money, the easiest and fasting thing is to get a job. Do the command /jobs browse and you can see all of the jobs to pick from. Left clicking on a job will show you some more information pertaining to that job. Do the command /jobs info (jobname) to see more details on how much money you earn with that job. When you find a job you want to join, do /jobs browse and right click on the job you’d like to join.
You’re officially hired! Jobs do have a cap that you can earn every real time hour though. Higher total job levels increase this cap, but you can never earn more than that much per hour.
You can also eventually get more than one job – up to five in fact! To unlock additional job slots, you have to purchase the Expansion Book from the vendor at /warp gm. Book do not have to be used one after the other – you can skip straight to 5 Job Slots if you have the diamonds and emerald saved up – but they are consumed upon use. So, if you use to 2 Slots book, you’ll be able to join a second job, but will have to buy the 2 Slot book again in order to trade for the 3 Slot book, and so on.
Another way to earn money is to sell things in the global market. The command /help market will tell you all about how to list items, buy items, and where to collect your earnings and purchases.
If you want to sell an item, hold it in your hand and type /market create amount. If you want to sell a pickaxe in your hand for 300 voxels do /market create 300 and it will take the item and create your listing. There is a small fee for listing an item in the global market. This fee is subtracted from your earnings when the listing is purchased.
To buy from the global market open one of the chests inside the Global Market building at /warp gm, and you will see a bunch of items and some paper and a redstone comparator on the bottom row. Hover your mouse over the paper and you can see what each piece does. One goes forward a page, one goes back a page, and the redstone comparator will change how the market listings are sorted: newly created, highest price, lowest price, and highest amount (of items). When you find something you want, click the item in the chest and follow the prompts in chat. Make sure you have enough money on you or in your wallet.
Quickshops are an additional way to earn money. You can practically sell any item you want in a quick shop, and place a quickshop anywhere in the Overworld or Nether. They cost 10 voxels to make but you can keep refilling them. However, if you leave them empty for more than a day or two, they will reset and you’ll need to create a new shop.
To make a quickshop, hold the item you want to sell in your hand. Hit a chest with the item and then type in chat how much you would like each item to cost. Only type a number and don’t include any words. A sign should pop up on the chest saying what the quickshop is selling and for how much. You can then open the chest and stick your goods in there to sell. No one but you, Mods, and Admins can open those chests so don’t worry about your stuff being stolen.
If you happen to see something you want to buy from another quickshop, you can purchase goods from it. Hit the chest like you would punch it. Then you type in chat how many you want to buy. Make sure you only type a number. When you hit enter you will finalize the purchase, which will pull the funds from your inventory/wallet and place the purchased items in your inventory.
Other Types of Currency
On Vox, we have other types of currency that can be used to buy armor, weapons, tools, and many other things. You can get these types of currencies by killing mobs, fighting bosses, and even slaying the ender dragon.
Conquest Tokens are the second most used currency, not counting Voxels. Conquest Tokens are used to buy perks or abilities that you wouldn’t have otherwise, tools and armor that you may need, upgrades to your armor, as well as admittance into the weekly RaidBoss*.
You can collect Conquest Tokens very easily, no matter how long you have been playing on the server. You can get Conquest Tokens by killing the bosses that spawn at the Dark Cavern, or by participating in the many dungeons that the server has to offer. For more information, type /help conquest in game.
Prestige Tokens are rarer than Conquest Tokens, and can only be obtained one way. To get Prestige Tokens, you can attend the weekly Raidboss* in order to get this loot, as well as other loot items. Conquest Tokens can also be traded for Prestige Tokens at /warp prestige, at a rate of 32 Conquest Tokens per Prestige Token.
Prestige Tokens are used to buy high tier armor and weapons, some of which can only be bought with Prestige Tokens at /warp prestige.
On Vox Populi, one of the highest tiers of currency on all three servers is the Dragon Egg. These eggs can only be gotten from players or by killing an Elemental Dragon. Eggs can then be collected and taken to /warp endgame to get high tier weapons and armor that can only be gotten with Dragon Eggs. The armour and weapons are some of the highest tier items and weapons in game, so Dragon Eggs are important for reaching the top.
Gold Doubloons are the first special currency that can be found on Vox Populi. Their origins are mysterious, but rumor has it that a thieve socket is capable of pulling them from the grasp of hostile mobs sometimes. They can also be found in Pirate Lockboxes that dedicated fishermen can pull up from the depths of the waters on Vox.
If someone were to collect some of these Gold Doubloons, there is a merchant in the sewers that is willing to trade valuable goods for them. This merchant is only in town for a few days at a time, and his stock changes with every visit.
Valerian Royals are the final of the two special currencies that can be found on the servers of Vox Populi. It can be bought from other players, and through other ways as well, but the best way to get Valerian Royals is on the Vox Populi E-Store, where they are sold to all three servers for many reasons. They cannot be gotten through the same means as the Conquest Tokens, Prestige Tokens, or Ender Eggs, though there are still ways to get them in game. Valerian Royals can be used during events to assist you in getting decorative items and pets or be used as an alternate currency to other items in game. Definitely not necessary to advance in the game, but very good to have just in case. You can buy Valerian Royals at https://voxmc.com/shop/
