There are some specific tips for farming in this server.
For one, pick up whatever Green gear for your class you can early on, and +8 it right away. Then, try to make your way to 40 or 50 or 60 and start looking on the Marketplace for some epics. That, or try Master or Abyss runs (although the gear drops there are pretty random).
Once you get some decent epic gear, try to +8 it as quickly as possible.
Then, start farming Dragon Cultist Base on Abyss mode. If you get the Royal Chest, you will get tons of Sparks (Hidden Ability) and Altheum and possibly some Diamond. Kill the boss at the end and you should get a few more sparks and Altheum. The amount of sparks you get from the Royal Chest is insane. You'll get like 5 of each kind (epic).
Once you have your epic gear +8 and with hidden abilities, start farming Master mode of LV 50-60 dungeons such as the 2nd one with the butterfly looking boss. You'll get suffix materials. Just keep running it and saving up the materials.
Once you have those materials, you'll need the epic pakultos essence. Either buy what you can on the Marketplace if you have the gold, or try to get someone to boost you through the LV 60 nests and let you have the pakultos essences.
Suffix your gear, repeat for suffix 2 and 3 and then start farming gold (still figuring out the best method) so you can buy Jellies on the Marketplace and then work towards +10-12 or higher your gear.
The drop rate and even gold rate at times makes it pretty easy to get geared out. On top of basic gear, there is Cash Shop gear which for the most part is donated for (cheap by the way), but if you don't want to donate then some people sell the Cash Shop currency for gold.
