Because TMW is smaller and more personal than many other MMORPGs, the structure of the economy is slightly different. For one thing, player-to-player trading is more difficult. Also, it is less effective to "buy" prestige through rare items.
Profitable to sell to shops
|Item||Monster||Selling Price (GP)|
|Iron Potion||Spiky Mushroom||250|
|Miner Hat||Red Slime||400|
|Boots||Red Slime, Quest||500|
|Dagger||Bat, Fire Goblin||500|
|Fancy Hat||Red Scorpion, Snake, Quest||800|
|Miner Gloves||Red Slime||1,000|
Killing bats are no longer an easy way to make money by selling to NPCs, although Arkim proposes a very short, valuable and redoable forever quest, if you're at least level 20 (see also the Daily Quests page).
The Bat Wings (30%) can be sold in great quantities to other players at a low price using ManaMarket. Bats also drop Bat Teeth (20%) which are not valuable anymore, unlike the Daggers (0.7%). They also drop Maggot Slimes (8%) and Bug Legs (4%), both which are magic supplies. Combined with the relative ease of killing them, bats are an easy way for patient people to make money. The Bats are more numerous in the cave at the west of Hurnscald.
Other good targets that drop magic supplies are for example Fire Goblins (Pile Of Ash), Squirrels (Herbs) and Log Heads (Roots, Logs).
In addition, as soon as you are strong enough, it is possible to focus on Yellow Slimes (Iron Ore), Sea Slimes (Concentration Potion, Pearl) and Red Slimes (Boots, Dagger, Miner Gloves, Leather Shirt, Miner Hat, Ruby).

These items are dropped from one of the most powerful monster in game, Jack'O. They are not rare drops but are difficult to be obtained due to the difficulty to kill this monster. These items can be bought or sold at around 3,000 GP.
