Silkroad Online Job Tips
Some helpful tips on what to look out for in your jobs on Silkroad online!
In Silkroad online, a player (upon hitting level 20) may choose to participate in 3 Jobs, Hunter, Thief and Trader. Each are different but play important roles within the game.
Hunter : It is the Hunters duty to take down any Thief and to defend the traders from being robbed. Watch out for Thief.
Thief : It is the Thief duty to eliminate any traders and their transport to obtain good which they can sell. However, they need to watch out for both Hunter and Traders.
Trader : The Trader must travel across Silkroad to other towns with a transport full of Goods. These goods are worth a lot more than 100% if the trader manages to cross to another town, leaving them with a healthy profit. However, the trader can be robbed by thieves and risk losing their goods.
A player can be all 3 jobs! However, levelling jobs can be difficult so I would choose a main job. You get exp for your selected job for:
Hunter : Killing Thieves
Thief : Handing in Stolen Goods
Trader : Selling goods to another town
However, you lose exp for certain jobs if you get exp for a different one
Hunter loses Exp on thief
Thief loses Exp on trading and hunting
Trader loses Exp on thief
Some Tips for a Trader
• All Trade runs have a level, ranging from 1 to 5 Star, the more stars there is, the more difficult the trade run will be. At 1 Star, player thieves are unable to attack the trader, however, NPC thieves do spawn and attack. If you are a low level and are worried about losing your goods, go as a 1 star.
• People believe that going in groups is a lot better, in most cases yes, but only go with people around the same level as you. If you go with a higher level, the NPC thief that spawned off their trade will be around their level and there is a chance that it may attack you. I would say stick with a 5 level gap between the traders unless you have some hunters helping.
• Although you are on a 1 star trade run, player thieves still have a way of killing you. What out for thieves that are travelling in front of you, as they may be hoping that their NPC thieves will spawn and attack you, leaving you with a horde of thieves hitting your transport, eventually killing both you and your transport leaving the thief a nice pile of loot to pick up and sell.
