“Death is so terribly final, while life is full of possibilities.”

 
OP  2/27/13 7:06:57 AM#1

This is my biggest question. Maybe there's a way that I don't know about. But I'm sitting at around 4-5g right now and that seems to be my max. I go to the Trading Post and see these legendary items going for between 2-3 thousand gold. I have no way of even beginning to make that much.

I just want to know, how do you make money? I've got my leatherworking up to 400 but to make an exotic piece I have to buy 5 ectos and then it about evens up, if not I make maybe 20s at the most.

SWTOR has their dailies, and i'm not asking for the same here but I just would like to figure out a way to make some decent cash. I'm not saying a hundred gold in a day but just a few g here and there to start building up to a decent amount. Everything just seems so out of reach at the moment.

just play the game?

 

1 rare is 0-1g depends of how many ectos you get

in 1 hour you can get alot or rares and salvage them

 

or you can just sell them if you dont like the gamble :)

Do or get Done

Running dungeons could give you some gold , also farming Orr can give some some cool stuff to salvage. 

Last you could always buy gems or that would be what ANET would want you to do ....

Have as much magic find buffs you can muster ans either do overland PVE for rares or dungeons.

You can either sell the rares or salvage them for ectos.

If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

I don't plan on buying gems just purely to swap for gold. The gem-gold ratio is too damn low.

buying gems is a horrible way to make gold way to expensive to be worth it..like said above stack explorer gear to up your magic find and get some omnom food to boost it up a lot..I'm at work so don't have the spots but just going around doing events with all that magic find can net you a decent amount of gold per hour...also look on YouTube some decent guides on there

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

Dungeons should give you over 1g per hour. Farming high-end areas like Orr should also be profitable, but for some reason it has never worked well for me.

Also don't expect to make enough money to be able to buy a legendary on the tp in any sort of reasonable time.

I think some play the market....which is about as fun as going to the dentist. Farming gold in Orr is very slow going even with max magic find. Ive seen people claim they make 4 g an hour in Orr. I pull in maybe 1g an hr there. I think dungeons may be the most profitable. Ive never played an mmo that was this difficult to make cash. Ive accepted the fact that I will be eternally poor in this game.

must not of played many MMOs then..also considering even if you don't craft your own exotics or use karma to get them.. Pieces can be bought for only a couple gold each..you can easily be fully geared in no time at all

At 42k karma a piece you will not gear out your toon in "no time at all". You also need to buy runes, sigils and exotic weapons. I just wish there was more than one karma grinding spot than cursed shores. I don't mind grinding if I can have a change of scenery from time to time. And don't say go to lower lvl zone as they will be less gold and karma for your time. They also just nerfed gold makingv in Orr with yesterdays patch (addition of craptastic loot dropping champion mobs).

you can easily get 75% more karma for every jug you use.. I'm level 64 now on my mesmer and have almost 200k karma

should I tell you even before the jugs was on the game I bought 16 pieces of gear so I would mystic forge then to get a item I could sell or salvage?

 

best way to make gold is dungeons runs and hope for a precursor drop, if not dungeons, farms in high land, selling resources, selling rare skins(one time I sold a pretty rare exotic because of his skin a large scimitar make 4 g only from it) I do most of my gold in W3 events, but since I spend then in repairs and siege weapons plus upgrades I never save much.

 

people say they can farm over 10g a hour doing dungeons, so try that

FOR HONOR, FOR FREEDOM.... and for some money.

Citadel of flame dungeon farming is currently the most popular. Up to 2 gold in 30 minutes.

Orr farming for events and make sure you have high magic find if you want good profit there. Dungeons don't require magic find.

From everything I've read, it seems magic find on gear is worthless, but food buffs like Omnomberries are the way to go.

When I came back from my break, I decided to not seriously craft on any of my characters, so I emptied my deposit vault and sold everything, and kept selling what I found. I initially had about 11g from the sales, and was able to make 1-2g per night selling while leveling my elementalist. I'd salvage everything, except for gear that sold very well, and then would sell the craftables. I've been able to stay well stocked with gold, even though I am buying my gear as I level, and of course having to buy the books at 40 and 60. I then caught the crafting bug again, so I am not making a ton of money at the moment.

I've been able to flip a few items on the AH, but that can be risky, and it's harder to find items where there's only a few and in are high demand.

explorer gear does help for sure but omnom is essential IMHO if you are going for drops

It's funny you brought up karma, which has been considered the most expendable currency in the game.  The most common problem with karma is most players can't find anything useful to buy with it; and they just have so darn much of it.  

But before your comment, the conversation was about gold and how you can gear yourself up in no time at all just by buying exotics, which is completely true.  Exotic pieces with the stats you want go for only a couple gold each.  Useful runes go for silver.  It's not beyond the realm of possibility to get a very good set of gear for 15 gold.  It may not be your ultimate final set, but that would be ridiculous if it was.  

As for acquiring 15 gold, there are so few natural gold sinks at end game (which is part of the reason you see TP numbers going up and up--the total player gold pool keeps going up and up) that you basically save everything you find.  If you just play the game moderately for 2 weeks doing anything, you'll pretty much end up with 15 gold.
