Buying and Selling
Player Shops create a "Shop Local" atmosphere, allowing players to buy goods from or sell items to other players. A good way to make money and make a name for yourself on Mantodea, it is paramount to your towns success that the creation of shop signs are understood. There are three types of shops players can create; Buy, Sell, and Buy and Sell (demonstrated below).
Player Shops can be placed on Barrels, Single Chests, and Double Chests.
YOU MUST BE BEETLE OR HIGHER IN ORDER TO USE PLAYER SHOPS!

Jobs are undoubtedly the best way of making money in the long-term grind of Mantodea.
As their name suggests, Jobs are occupations that players can join, allowing them to make money by doing certain actions.
Jobs pay per unit, which means payment is given to players as they complete a singular action. This unit pay increases with the amount of action an individual completes. As players complete action, they will also receive Job XP, which levels up their job.
As a job levels up, the unit pay and amount of XP awarded to players will increase slowly until reaching the maximum level of 100.
The grind takes time, but it is worth it for those who plan on completing big projects or looking to rule the economy.
The Auction House is a place to buy and sell items of your choice! Inputting items onto the Auction House is simple!
All you need to do is hold the item you desire in your main hand and type /ah sell [price]!
Once you place an item on the Auction House, players can buy it from you and the money will go directly into your account.
In order to buy items from the Auction House, type /ah . Once you are in the GUI, you can then choose the item that catches your eye and left-click it. A second menu will then pop up, allowing you to confirm or cancel the purchase! Easy trading made possible!
The In-Game Shop is a place for players to buy exclusive armor, weapon, and tool sets... even Harvest Keys!
The gear is expensive, but are focused on specific styles of gameplay and can prove useful to players who wield them.
These gear sets do NOT come with Soulbound, which makes them risky to use. Soulbound can be recieved through our Loot Locker after you complete your Monthly Challenge!

Loot Lockers are portable crates that can be opened by right-clicking. They can ONLY be obtained by completing Monthly challenges, and are therefore filled with awesome rewards. Including crafting pieces and two custom enchantment books, it is worth the effort!
