How to make money in Guild Wars 2

Category: Money Making Guides Comments: No comments

As some of you may have noticed that amount of gold you receive in Guild Wars 2 is much less than other MMOs.  I have thought about ways to preserve the gold you get and decided to share what I’ve come up, with you.

1. Be aware of the loot you get.  This is rule number one because it defines the way the rest of the choices are determined.  Do not simply mindless move your mouse through your bags clicking on whatever highlights blue for salvage.  I know the deposit all materials function is tons of fun, and I used to do this, but I 100% guarantee, you are losing a huge amount of gold.

2. Have a basic understanding and ability to determine what a trading post worthy piece of gear is.  For example it’s probably not worth it to put a blue piece of light armor with +healing and + crit damage on the trading post.  Not that there is a limit of things you can put up there, it’s just that you are wasting copper to post it and you are delaying the inevitable.   The inevitable is rule 3.

5 tips for making money on the trading post – Tip 1

Category: Money Making Guides Comments: No comments

Tip 1: Learn a craft and max it out

Learn a craft. Maybe that seems obvious. You craft and you sell the gear you craft. Pretty straight forward, right? But selling that gear you’re crafting gives you something invaluable for making money on Guild Wars 2′s trading post. You see,  it’s actually possible to make money on the trading post without crafting. By exercising the time-honored principle of buying low and selling high, you could get by without a craft. For instance, you could buy orichalcum ore when it’s price is too low and you could resell it when the price rises.

But how do you know when the price is too low?

Buying low means you have to know the market, you have to know what’s a good price and what’s not. You have to develop an understanding of the prices on the Black Lion Trading Company (BLTC), and the best way to develop that understanding is to start crafting and resell what you make on the trading post. The more you buy and sell from the trading post, the more knowledgeable you’ll get about those prices.
