Begging

Begging is the ability to get small coins from various NPC's. It is a very dangerous skill, since many prefer to kill the begger rather than give him anything.

What is the best way to use this skill? How and where can you improve your begging skill? What, if any, use is this skill? What type of money can be made through begging?

Post your strategies on how to best develop and use the begging skill, and read, rate and comment on those posted by others.

Had just cast origin to try Crescent Reach soulbinder, saw Emissary Tinnvin standing there and decided why not try. Skilling up nicely after only a few minutes, no sign of change in how she considers me.

Hello,

Thanks to Loroth of Tunare. Use the npc in Nektulos called Farand Silver. He is a little east from the bridge, north side, up on bank.

Maxxed Begging

My main toon is level 88 and I have just maxxed my begging at 440. I mostly raised it with the guards in Felwithe (north and south) and Kelethin, but I also went to Field of Scales with an iksar illusion and raised it on mobs; I call it "begging the mobs to death" Instead of hitting attack, I taunt bash and use spells to kill the mobs so I can keep begging. It took me a lot of time to max it. Now, I am wondering what use it is. I can get copper, silver and gold from NPCs with the title "guard" (not guardian) My disarm is maxxed as well so I can make mobs drop their weapons which provides another small amount of money now and then.

Never bothered with this "skill" before but now I'm kinda obsessed with maxing out every measurable skill in EQ. Using the Soulbinder in Rivervale I was able to skill up to 188 very quickly. But that seems to be some sort of "cap" since further increases have slowed to a complete crawl. Took 32 attempts to get to 190 (2 successes!) Oh well, something to do while watching TV. Altho at this point I'll probably switch to the macro version shown here and level it up along with some of my melee skills. My H2H is really poor! ;)

The only successes I have had from begging were when I was drunk. If I'm not, I usually just get ignored. At a skill of 180 I got as much as 1 gold from a guard. My skill is much higher now and I have not tried to beg npc's much since 180.

I skill up off mobs I'm fighting.

A macro I wish I new earlier is /doability #
/autoattack off
/doability #
/autoattack on

On another note, there is a heavy circulating rumor that Begging can build aggro. But I don't know how to confirm this.

Find a Nexus Scion - anywhere but the nexus-- most are in a safe area and are indifferent to about anyone. Then make a hot key from your begging skill - and key it "e" or some unused key in the key part of your options. Then, on your computer, press the shift key 5 times -- this should turn on your sticky keys and make your computer hit the same key or key sequence over and over. quoting from wiki "Usage

In Windows, to toggle on the StickyKeys feature, the user presses the Shift key 5 times in a row or press left Alt, left Shift and Print Scrn, and to turn it off press both shift keys at the same time. When activated, a dialog box appears, and the computer makes an internal chirp.[4] This is consistent with the activation sequence on the Macintosh. The activation is indicated by a small icon in the menu bar."

this allows you to beg while afk. The scion is one of the safest to beg from. my begging is now maxed.

I'm confused -- I understand everything up until the point that my EQ client will beg while I'm AFK...?

I start the program while I'm loaded in my EQ client by clicking the left 'SHIFT' key twice -- it starts up and then I click 'YES' -- now what?

How do I then have key "1" (my hotbutton macro) pressed (w/ or w/out an interval) while I'm AFK?

Nothing seems to happen when I hit "1" in game once the program has started.

I'm running WIN 7 w/ EQ in maximized window mode.

Thanks

Upon reading about sticky keys, I only found that you could use it to continuously keep shift, crtrl, alt etc. down? Not to repeat the "e" key?

Could anyone confirm that this is a way to repeatedly press "e"?

I made a hotkey that turns attack off, then begs from the mob, then turns attack back on. I have it set to the same bind key as kick, so every time I go to kick the mob, it begs from them, too. This has allowed me to raise my begging.

Begging skill 1-375
# Jun 16 2011 at 12:43 PM Rating: Decent

The best/safest place for skill ups I found are starting cities. I maxed my skill at 375 just off the Soulbinder.

From my knowledge pets and anything in PoK gave no skill up on anything I tried.

Other information I gathered from doing skill ups are anyone (everyone I attempted at least) with just a name and no title under it will attack eventually. For example Guards, Eracon Krengon, or Exterminator's will attack but Soulbinder Novalu with a title under name (Soulbinder) will not. Secondly I noticed that if I did not get a skill up in the first 20 or so attempts (skill 1-100) from an NPC I moved on until I did. Examples are Sorn Copperhold (Banker).

I've gotten 13 skill ups in about 10 minutes.

I tried begging my pet in Korafax and Pok and baz and nothing. Interestingly enough, it was at 80 to start...because I used to beg my pet while I fished at lake of ill Omen, while waiting for mana. Way, way back in the day.

Yeah, gonna do the BiC.

How to Beg and attack in combat

It's pretty easy to skill up... Heres what I did on my BL. He's only lvl 75, but his beg skill is maxed (325). I just use it in combat along with kick and it skills up.

If you're a horrible at making hotbuttons I am going to walk you through it so that it is practically impossible to get lost while making this hotbutton:

First, Set up Begging:
Do CTRL+A. This should switch your "Actions" window (the window that normally has Find, Invite, Disband, Camp, Sit/Stand, Run/Walk on it) to the "Abilities" page. Right click on the square at the top left of the abilities page. This should bring up a window with a list of skills to pick from. Click Begging.

Second, Making the actual Hotbutton:
Type in on your chat window this text exactly as follows:
/Hotb Beg+Atk /attack off
Typing this in should make a Square appear on your cursor that says "Beg+Atk" on it. Place this Square onto your hotbar, (if you don't know what a hotbar is do ALT+H to toggle it on and off and draw some attention to where it is) it doesn't matter where on the hotbar you decide to place the square, just place it somewhere on there. Now that the hotbutton is on the hotbar, right click it. When you right click the button it should bring up a window named "Edit Social". There should be 5 lines on this hotbutton. You should edit the hotbutton so that they are like this (THIS DOES NOT ALSO INCLUDE WRITING THE PHRASES "Line #1", "Line #2", and "Line #3"):

Line #1: /attack off
Line #2: /do 1
Line #3: /attack on

Then click accept at the bottom right of the window.

While fighting a mob, click on your hotbutton and it should enable you to attack and beg at the same time.

I went to Freeport looking for the NPC mentioned, and couldn't figure out how to get into the Academy of Arcane Science. So I begged off random Freeport NPCs for about two hours, and got three skillups. Then I was on my way to PoK to get and INT buff spell, and I begged off Freeport's animals (and deathfist orc, and skellies) on the way. Goe 7 more skillups in the space of 20 minutes (keep in mind about the begging skill not being SPAMmable). So it seems animals are more likely to give you skillups then people, or rather, mobs that are designed to be killed rather then merchs and quest-givers.

This is at level 0, begging is now at 9.

most of the stuff people know about begging is out of date. so i will share all of the stuff that i have come to learn.


the dire charm npc in Tactics doesnt give any skill at all towards begging for some reason. and neither did ping fuzzlecutter.


you can not beg anything back from your pet, infact if you have a charmed mob as your pet you cant beg him for skill. if the thing is a pet, you cant beg anything from it.

i dont think you can gain skill from begging in PoK either, but im only thinking this because i was begging for about 2 hours while i was fishing and didnt get 1 skill increase. its entirely possible that im just really unlucky

begging doesnt help with aggro. infact, i noticed something weird when i was in freeport fighting a snake. i slowed it so that i wouldnt see all that damned battle spam, and started mashing beg. about 5 minuntes later (slow had worn off) the mob walks away.
could it be that aggro decreases over time? and if thats the case, begging didnt help me keep aggro.

oh yeah, and at 120 begging, freeport yard trash seem to be trivial begging. i dont get skill increases from them anymore. i do all of my begging in DSP while helping my girlfriend get her ranger some levels.

the most i've begged was 1 cp at a time a few dozen times in a row. my girlfriend, with 0 skill, managed to beg 1 cp from the same mob once every couple minutes, frequency increasing as her skill increased.
suddenly, however, the fast flow of cp stopped. so we switched mobs and went back to begging 1cp at the same rate till that stopped also.
guess mobs that you can beg from only have a certain amount of beggable cash. i gave them their cp back and still couldnt beg from them. i went back to them later and begged from them again and made money from it. guess their beggable cash regenerates over time?
these mobs did not aggro on us during the hours that we begged them. our level spread might have increased our chances for begging, and decreased our chances for being attacked. note that i have not been attacked for begging in almost a year now.


> oh, and i have 280 charisma. it hasnt helped me at all.

No, it's not important. It's just another one of those things they've put into the game to make it interesting but of no to extremely little value...like the Alchohol Tolerance skill.
I have a mage who has a Begging skill of 145. I almost always get only a copper peice when I beg, 1 silver peice if I'm lucky, so it's not even a good way to make money. And it only has a chance of working if the person you are begging from doesn't hate you. So if you are fighting something, while you can still beg from them, they are NEVER going to give you any money.

Er, I'm not sure when the Berserker Epic was added to the game, but, don't disregard AT as useless if you're going to help a Berserker with Epic.

The mob in Daganors Cauldron procs a nasty Alochol AE that has everyone wobbly knee'd and double-vision'd.

For the record alcohol tolerance is very useful! It gives you 'beer muscles' an makes you stronger. If you are a master of Alcohol tolerance you can drink some mead and hit for more damage! It will also affect you less and less as you get higher in level. This means you can drink before you fight and be stronger while intoxiacated. This is something that is a nice little cheat that is cheap!

Alcohol tolerance also helps you resist certain effects from LDoN traps and some mobs, that cast 'drunk'-type effects that damage your equilibrium. My rogue has a full 200 AT and is not effected by the drunk-traps from LDoN boxes, while his group members will find themselves unable to cast or talk or walk properly when the trap hits. It's the same with my friend's 200 AT dwarf cleric--drunk traps and drunk spells don't effect her.

It'll get you a few coins off an NPC if it works. No, you don't really need it, although some people do use a hotkey set up like this:

/attack off
/doability 3 (which ever ability BEG is)
/attack on

to get an "additional taunt". I'm not 100% sure if begging increases aggro in combat, but that's what I have seen done.

I wanted to see if begging was worth while, so I got this program called MMOGer, and it works pretty cool. I set it up to cast my pet, then I beg from him for a few hours and cast another pet, since begging too much will eventually kill him off. In 2 nights, I had my beg skill almost maxed. With enough charisma gear on, it makes the skill kind of nice to have. Good Luck :)

You agreed with your wife to make 1kpp/hour to show EQ as being productive? EQ <> Productive. EQ = fun/relaxing/time wasting :-)

Best bet at lvl 30 is one of 2 things:

Rathe Mountains killing HGs - but no WAY you can make 1kpp/hour doing that at lvl 30 (at ANY level really)

Otherwise, sit in your servers Market zone, join your servers Market channel and start trading.

Good luck

What Dark Elfs can do is go to the dock in Neriak Commons.
There is a lowbie NPC standing there for no reason.

Buy a spit, target the NPC, fish (Raises fishing), bake Fish fillets or fish rolls in your spit (Raises baking) while begging at the same time.

Believe it or not doing these 3 skills at once keeps you busy as ****!

If the NPC aggros, just zone.

I have also learned you can beg from most anything if you can target it, like the little dingy in Toxx Forest that you take to Kerra Island. Its all in where you stand. So far the large boats from Continent to Continent are targettable but I have not found a place to beg. It says I am too far away.

If your charisma is really high, or you have really good faction with an NPC is it more likely that you will get more money from them?

I am a vicar on TallonZek (55 cleric) who has endured the slow and tedious process of becoming a master begger (skill 200!).
My charisma is 60-75 (depends on my equip) and I have NEVER gotten anything more then a silver-pice. And even this is rare.
I can sucessfully gain cobber-pices from most NPC that con neutral or better, but if you plan to make a living of your begging, you will end up starving.
The NPC's does not attack me any more when I succesfully beg them more then tre times .. they sipley stop giving me anything.
Any mob I have meet, that is red and KoS I have begged. My conclusion is clear: your chance of getting better at begging is equally big on a dragon as it is on a firebeetle.
I have begged them all: bankers, beggers, dervish cutthroats, pets, dragons YouNameIt. Besides from a good laugh, a singe Exp-death (6 guards in Freeport ganged up on me) and a silver-pice in 1/20 succesfull atempts, I have gotten nothing of value.

Here's an interesting fact, in wolf form you are not KoS to Ice Giants. REALLY wanna raise your skills? I have done this from no points to 135, take wolf form and beg while you med. As of late Ice Giants are not camped as much, so I just sit there and beg from them before entering Perma to get Banished by Vox. Seems like a waste of time, but at this level it's really hard to find a place to go and have fun. If you want to get it up there, hit the Ice Giants. Works great.
begging will it pay?

First off I'd like to hear from someone who has 200 begging skill, and that is cap as far as I have read. I have a 120 beg and as a necro I pratice on my pet. Now I often beg on NPC's as I pass, have only been attacked twice but a fast FD solves that. Most I have received is 3 silver, and alot of 1 or 2 copper. My question is "will there is a chance that Verant will one day make this useful or have it be quest related?" Either way I will be prepared. In the interum it saves me from boredom during med times.

I have 200 skill in Begging, mostly from my pet, and I never get more than a few silver. However, since I've gotten to 200 I've NEVER been attacked.

How to improve the BEG

It is quite simple to develop this skill without facing a risk.
First if u can summon or charm, just beg ur pet instead of other NPCs. Although u won't able to get any coins but it is really a safe way to get its max in each lv.
I am a lv 20 wiz now, i my begging skill is 94. Although i don't have pet, but everytime when I fight, I will beg the mobs when it start to run, attack, stop attack then beg => attack, stop attack then beg... With such a cycle. Certainly I have make beg as a hot key <Q>. So the cycle is go like this > A, A, Q, A, A, Q
Hope this is useful for you ^_^

Nogrok, an Iksar Necro told me about the begging from the mob you are attacking, so I tried it against Forest Giants in FV. Using the same method described by Siroccos, it worked pretty darned well.

The only reason I decided to work on begging was that I was tired of seeing that "Awful" under Begging when so many of the other skills said "Good", "Excellent", or "Master."

Silly reason, I know. But, eh.
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 16 2001 at 8:30 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The way I see it if you going to be a beggar you better be prapaired to role play a little. Beg form PC's sometimes it more rewarding, but instead of being attacked and killed you could be harrased and shuned which is somtimes worse. Ofcorse you can't raise your skill on PC's, but if you role play a little (being a bard, a rogue, or a Paladin/Cleric who need a donation for a good cause :P) helps alot when beging form PC's.
