DFO Beginner’s Guide - About Materials Getting Started With Easy Tips
Materials are a huge part of DFO. Here are several tips you should keep in mind when handling the materials you will end up getting in this game.
Save Cube Fragments
Background: Cube fragments are items you will find and accumulate on your journey in DFO. There will be a variety of colors as well. The types you need to keep track of are clear, white, black, blue, and red cube fragments. With 100 cube fragments, you can create a normal cube as well. A later patch simplifies it to just cube fragments.
Why Save? Two reasons:
- Higher level skills consume a clear cube fragment when used.. Most of these skills require one cube fragment, but some can cost several per use. By accumulating clear cube fragments, you will save yourself time and trouble later on!
- Cubes and cube fragments can be required by quests. By collecting cubes, you will save yourself a lot of time and money. A ridiculous amount of cubes may be required so be prepared!
There's some other minor reasons but they aren't as important. But the lesson is clear; make sure to save cubes! But that brings us to our next question (and tip!)...how do we get and accumulate cubes and cube fragments?
Grind blues and sell whites
Background: There is an item grade system in DFO.Like many other MMOs, all items and weapons can come in several grades.. The grades are as follows from worse to best (approximately):
Grey < Common (white) < Uncommon (blue) < Rare (purple) < Legacy (purple) < Unique ( pink) < Legendary (Dark Orange)
I will go over the specifics of each grade in the third part, but for this advice, pay attention to white (common) and blue (uncommon) items.
What is disassembling? Disassembling is an action you can take with any type of equipment (be it armor or weapons). Players normally call disassembling 'grinding'. The NPC you want to go to in order to grind your items is Morgan. There are players that can grind items as well, but that is a topic that will be covered in professions (Second Part). The way it works is that an NPC or Player has a disassembler that you can use to grind your items.
Fun Fact: Before Metastasis, the NPC you would go to in order to 'grind' your items was Loton. However, when the old God messed everything up and destroyed Arad in the process, Loton ended up being a casualty! Bet that woke you up! At least we'll get a clone version of him in the Mirror West Coast eventually.
Grinding results in cube fragments. A white item will net you only clear cube fragments while blue can net you clear and colored cube fragments. Additionally, clear cube fragments are really easy to stockpile. So it really isn't worth it to grind your white equips. So a common suggestion is to always sell your white equips for gold but grind your blue equips for cubes.
Pick up everything you see
Background: In DFO, while in dungeons, you will notice a variety of items after killing quite a few mobs. Some of you may believe that those items are useless and you won't gain anything from them especially early on, but you would be wrong. So I recommend picking up everything you see.
- You might need those mats for an epic/repeatable quest soon/later
- Some of those mats might be useful elsewhere (Professions for instance)
- Later down the road, you can make some money from selling those items on the AH
Do NOT sell any materials in the beginning
Background: A lot of newbies will be tempted to sell their materials early on for early income (i.e. on the Auction Hall and in respect to how much money they have right now, a few thousand gold is a lot). This ties in with the previous tip.
Reasons NOT to sell early: Those materials may come in handy for quests and more as mentioned previously Especially since the market should be volatile in the beginning, make sure you know real market prices to make the most out of your money.
So, do not sell any materials just yet! Hoard everything!

Very good website! Would recommend everytime.
This is the only place I buy DFO gold from. I was skeptical at first because all the rumors your hear. But I have never had a problem with these guys. And the best part they stay with you and make sure you get what you buy! I wish more retailers would sell like them..
