Where are YOU farming your gold?

#1vahndragonwingPosted 5/26/2012 4:55:50 AM
Just beat Nightmare, want to upgrade my staff of herding to nightmarish, I'm like 50k short though. While I know 50k isn't a lot, I'll still need to make some more after that, so I figured I'd try and find out where everyone's hotspots are.

Auction House - buy low, sell high.
- buy low, use it while leveling/farming, get something better, then sell the old one at double the buying price


Act 3 - Machines of War (the quest where you destroy siege machines)

Tons of packs in that whole area - past Bridge of Korsikk.

You'll get around 10-15k on NM each runabout.

Sounds good. I don't do the AH much simply due to the 10 at a time restriction. I'll definitely check out Machines, though. Thanks!

If you are truly into prioritizing gold farming - without using the AH - then just make sure your character is well-off into (I assume) tackling Nightmare Act 3.

- By that I mean you can easily nuke without the risk of dying often.

=========

- Redo the Siege machines quest
- Kill the packs
- Get the loot then sell the blues to merchant NPCs
- Keep the good rares for yourself, or alts, or followers; or future auctioning (otherwise just sell them to NPCs also)
- Finish the quest by destroying the Siege machines
- Repeat


It should take you around 10 minutes each repetition.
10-15k at a time.
** If your character is good enough, get some +Gold Drop% modified gear.

==========

I don't think boss runs give as much

I was doing Hell whimseyland and that was working out pretty good.

Jailor/Butcher act 1 Inferno runs. Get about 50-60k and usually at least 1 decent item to sell in AH per run takes about 30 minutes. I do this as a Barb in full str gear.

Act3 is kickin my ass like every min to 5 mins and cause of that 2 goblins escaped since i've played this character. I'd buy better gear but saving cash for upgrading the staff.

Isn't it funny how some people are trying to be helpful but don't really read what's going on?

Q: "I need to know how to farm quick gold for upgrading SoH to Nightmare"

A:
"Hey try out Hell Mode Whimsy!"
"Hey go do Inferno boss runs!"

- "Hey wait for the RMAH and buy golds!"
