Damn! Because of you, I'll start seeing lots of little Knighties on my main farming place!!
Joke aside, this is a really great guide! As a LK who drops more or less 700 GN / hour, I approve everything. There's nothing to change on this guide. It's both well detailed and beginner-friendly! Whoever wants to start GN farming, please read it all, and read it again!
I'd also recommend this guide that I used when I started on this server, I think they complement each other quite well:
I'll just add some tips for those who want to get to the extra mile, just small details here and there for extra comfort and efficiency... Some are useful, some are useless. Take whatever you want from that list
You will want Sleep immunity, get a slotted mid-headgear with Nightmare card
You will want Stone Curse immunity, there are 2 solutions:
1) If you use a shield, you can use Medusa card
2) Evil druid card on armor. It enchants your armor with Undead property. Many things happen when wearing undead armor, but for farming sleeper you only need to know that: You are immune to Stone Curse, but you can't receive Heal (you can still receive buffs and use the Doctor NPC, though!)
Another way of Teleporting is by using a Creamy Card accessory. Infinite Fly wing is still better because there's no extra message window that pops up on each teleport.
When starting the sleepers journey as a young Knight, Magmaring card on garment can also help reaching 1-hit BB (Increase physical damage on Earth Property enemies by 10%.), especially if you use Ahlspiess instead of rental Brocca
Rebirthing to LK makes your time easier: With Concentration, you only need to buy a super cheap Ahlspiess to 1-Hit BB, without the need of any buff (except Endow). So you only need to back to town when you're 90% overweight. Also, you won't need to farm Bronze coins for Rental Brocca anymore.
BB cast is reducible by DEX, and animation + delay is based on ASPD. In theory, that means that the fastest BB spam you can get is by having 150 DEX and 190 ASPD. However, this is completely overkill, especially because there's a limit of 3 skills per second.
As a complement of Teleport, Peco + fast movement speed helps to reach some places quickly. The cheapest way to increase move speed is to make yourself a Moogle Ball. (Lets you use the skill Agi Up lvl 2: https://wiki.talonro.com/Crown_Jewelry_Quest). Switch hat, cast agi up, switch back to your main hat.
For LK: With a 2H-sword, you can use Parry which is a great defensive skill, and 2-Hand quicken for faster ASPD. I'd recommend it only if you 1-Hit BB sleepers with your weapon, so run the numbers on calculator. My favorite weapon there is Veteran Sword, because with Violet Fear, you sometimes waste some time with the auto-cast of Meteor Storm...
Ice Pick is a VERY effective weapon on sleepers. It's an expensive buy though... so I personally don't recommend if it's just for sleepers. However, if you already have one, or if you plan on making a sinX later, then have fun with it
It's up to you if you want to spend the extra 0.5 sec picking up non-GN loots, or just focus on GN. Keep in mind it adds up over a 1-hour session
With some practice and no lag, you can pick up some of the loots when they're falling to the ground, but not on the ground yet
About the breaking GN/selling Green Lives part:
It's not very clear on the guide, but for the Umbala warp, the idea is that your warper slave can /memo ON the warp that brings you to the Shaman house (you can walk on it if you haven't done the quest)
Load 225 GN in your inventory, 225 GN in your cart, so you only have to open Kafra storage once every 2 trips
For non-bonus-bundle users, you can abuse !sj to come back to a place where there's both a Kafra and a Tool dealer NPC in sight for an instant sell and restock. To do that, set up a shop with a 3rd account, selling one garbage item that no one would ever sell nor buy. Then, just set the !sj command as a shortcut for a quick back to town. However, !sj abuse will become obsolete post-Iduna, because as I understand, you will only be able to !sj on autotrade shops, so that won't work anymore
While doing that, to warp your merchant back to Shaman:
1) Cast Warp Portal WITHOUT validating the location BEFORE your merchant backs, on the exact tile he's going to return
2) Merchant backs, sell, restock without moving
3) Validate the warp location for an instant warp back to Shaman house
