Howcome NCpwn isnt trolling or complaing about the game much and actually asking questions about the game? Has he only recently got his copy of GW2?
Anyway to answer the topic question, best way to make money is to spend money. Money makes money, check from time to time, mark down the prices. Spot the pattern. Then buy cheap and sell high.
But dont blame me if u mess up and go bankrupt. It takes skills.
Edit: And yes, 1 gold at round 30 sounds about right. I didnt do anything from level 1-80 but level. Didnt do any crafting or farming. Didnt sell crafting materials either, put everything into collections. And i got around 15 gold wen i got to 80 just from dynamic quests, hearts and story quest rewards.
Playing: Killing Floor, BFBC2, Team Fortress 2, L4d2 --Yoichi Wada needs to be fired--
Check fine mat prices Find one decently priced Go to that area Mass Murder mobs Sell all drops to npc, don't extract Sell gray drops. Sell Fine Mats on TP Profit ??? Switch areas when they stop to drop Rinse and repeat Profit Return to previous area Profit ???
You can easily end up with several gold in a few hours that way, must people just look for something worth really high price or something really expensive to craft.
About 100 Gold has already went trough my hands, and I currently have 42G, because I brought gear for my 2 alts when they are 80, crafted gossamer bags for all my 3 characters.
People just expects some magical recipe to make money when it's so simple, ive never, ever had money problems in a game really.
