Startup for Your Career
You may firstly want to go to Geoffry’s Parts Shop, there you should buy any rare grip and guards, prioritize one of each if possible. After buying them bring them to your shop and organize as you wish. Open your shop and follow the orders of customers for a few days and restock parts and ingots as needed. After you have a good amount of copper coins built up you may want to keep you shop closed for a day to get a weapon and tool of every kind to sell to customers right as they order.
