Gold is the currency in Skies of Arcadia. Like in most other RPGs, gold is used to buy items from the various vendors around the world.
Gold can be obtained by the following methods:
- Defeat enemies in battle.
- Inside certain treasure chests.
- Selling items at shops.
- Selling information about discoveries to the Sailor's Guild.
- Report defeated wanted enemies to the Sailor's Guild (remake only).
Gold can be used to buy new equipment, various items, and can be given to Kirala or Izmael to renovate buildings on your base. You can also give Gold to Ilchymis, Ryu-Kan, and Osman to upgrade their shops on your base. After getting the Delphinus, you can recruit Lawrence by paying him 10,000 gold.
