So, I gotta ask, am I missing something somewhere or am I just plain stupid ? :P

Some of you buy weapons for 90k, some others make 100k loans, and here I am with my 47k Adena that are not even enough to trade my Novice Blood Saber for something nicer ;)

I don't really "play the market" (well, not at all actually), so maybe that's one of the reasons why I'm so poor, but if you have some tips about gaining more Adena, I'm all ears cos I really could use some advice :D

Actually, I buy a sword breaker for 130k and sell it somewhere else for 150k :D
But I guess, from farm comes the most.

EU classic is rather generous on adena drop, especialy as they lowered SS consumption on weapons compared to old lineage. It is not as obvious with low ng weapons but since top ng/all D weapons (except for bows) consume 1 SS per hit too you can earn enough money not only for shots but also something little extra. If you are lucky enough to have also some nice fulldrop... You can use/sell it and buy better weapon and then you will earn money even faster.

You are nowhere near to stupid. It's all about playtime. We are nolifers (in comparence to you) :) So we had more time to farm that adena. Way more time. Fortunately, as Jizera said, L2C 1.5 is very generous indeed.
As for me I was just farming mobs and nothing else. I was actually selling weapons cheaper than I bought them. Have to admit mages are OP and broken, servitor alone stands as mid D equipped fighter right away from level 20, even more so with a decent weapon, they (we) don't even really need buffer or recharger (we will cry like a little girls to get one after level 40, though). E.g. with little help of us Hollovg already was in possession of mid D staff 2 weeks ago. Farm rates skyrocket with improving a weapon. Archers are almost as good as mages, especially after shots consumption was decreased.

As for advice pieces:
1. It's profitable to farm green/blue mobs. They die faster, hit easier, you roll drop chance more often (I have relatively high amount of jewelry or key drops to sell to shop/players).
2. Seek mobs with weaknesses. You can enlarge mob's HP window to check some stats. As general rule flying folks are weak to arrows, golem and skeleton dudes are weak to blunt attacks. (Be aware that there are plenty of mobs with weakened p.def but it often comes with improved evasion.)
3. Suggest using a bow. No kidding. I see lots of knight classes and dwarfs with bows. At levels below 40 difference (absence of) archery mastery makes is not really noticeable and range difference from (absence of) Long Shot passive only matters for 1st shot, you kite then anyway. It's weird but it's the best way to farm as fighter now. As for tank mode shield are cheap and weapon does not matter at all.
4. If you see bow completely disgusting consider using blunt (see above). Yes, Sting won't be available than.
5. Don't hesitate to sell mats and buy a GUN. You can always sell the weapon for same price as you bought it. Even if sell price will be lower, you will lose less than you would lose farming with worse weapon. I'm not familiar with economics but I bet there is a term for that. One should make money work not just sit on them. (In fact you should hesitate a bit :) I mean it's better to get familiar with average mats and weapon prices and popularity.)

Oh, so maybe with a little help from you I could be in possession of a nice D Sword then ? :P

You'e not the first one to suggest this actually, so I am indeed considering it.
Besides, it could be fun to change a bit from my sword & shield ;)
Now I just have to see if I can afford a bow !

That's right. GUN !
And yes, I believe I can help in acquiring of D sword somehow. (You mean bow, right ? :D )

You better sell mats to players.
(WARNING: They often may set price lower than NPC shop has. Check first, don't sell blindly.)
In terms of adena it's better to set own private store, actually.

You can farm pretty easily with sword/shield combo as palus knight. I use drain life with spiritshot before every mob and autohit them untill it drops dead. This way I keep my hp on max and deal a nice early damage.

Also I have something for you grazz't so be sure to log in today :)
