Not really that busy tho. And either, the stuff I just mentioned is also a way on how to earn slowly in gaia, and check out this part of the forums, Gaia Aquarium
Let me tell you a short info, check out all the threads, 1 by 1, then if you see the poster's aquarium has a "booty grab" click on the aquarium, enter the captcha and collect as many coins as you can, then if you're done, try checking out other aquariums too, you might earn a huge amount by just doing that. I was doing it for 5 rounds today and earned 10k tho.
Marketplace. heart yeah, avoid those overpriced items too, especially if the item is available in the shops tho (not in the marketplace)
Lol, we students really forget those school projects XD sweatdrop
Its not really rude to ask that, well, everyone from gaia were noobs before.
I'm doing achievements tho, then some forum spamming, commenting on profiles, voting on polls, playing games and that aquarium booty grab, should be a good source of gold.
I hope you also got your trading pass ticket too.
