Best money making methods in 2020?

  • I haven't played gw in about 8 years, i have no idea how to make money anymore. What are some of the most profitable money making methods for a returning player? looking for solo content ideas

    seems like farming ectos inst worth it anymore since they are so cheap now? any information is appreciated, Please and thank you

  • Well farming events is definetly worth doing for example by Vaetir farm which is probably most efficient.
    Solo farms which i like are ministerial commendation farm(mostly os weapons really) and luxon assasin farm. You can find guides on wiki and yt. Feathers farm as always is good option.
    In term of group farm DoA SC is the best but i never tried it so cant rly give You mich information

  • If you want to begin playing doa simply play mesmer or monk. Some mesmer roles require you to split at some point but your team can tell you where to go since you never split alone.

    At least that's how it was done in 2012

  • +1 on the Commendation Farm. It's a tried and true money factory that you don't have to rely on anything else for. Favor or not, you'll almost always get a couple old school golds to drop. Plus you get a chance at Bo Staves, Bladed Shields (rare) etc. It's not the worlds fastest money maker, but merching golds can net you some decent cash... then just turn the plat into ecto when prices drop. EZ PZ.

  • A few additional tips include farming for nick sets for gifts of the traveler and also making consets to sell (if you have the EOTN ranks) https://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Consumable_set

  • Some tips I have to make more money:

    • Identify everything you get from a level 20 mob. Even if it's white, just identify it.
      It can double in value just from doing that. Often, it will only be 1 gold more but sometimes it goes up dramatically.
      Down the line it is worth your while to identify everything - it will skyrocket your earnings.
    • Check every drop with runes with the trader. Some might look useless, but some insignia's are worth quite a bit and some runes can net you over 20k profits!
      I always check every drop, it makes for an easy extra bit of money.

    I have been doing this for like my whole gw life.

    Recently, i started gambling with salvaging white items. I cannot say which option is better, i just don't have the time or data to create a working model.


    But in General, what I have noticed, is that unless the item salvages in the overpopular materials like wood, chitin fragments, leather squares, the value of salvaged materials is a bit higher. Lets say, you have a white sword, that sells to merchant (after ID) 80g. You salvage it and get 5 iron. 1 Iron at the trader costs roughly 45g. With this salvage you have increased your profits by 225 (iron price) - 80g (max value of he item) - 20 (use of a salvage kit) = 125g.
    With blues it is a bit more tricky, because you have to id it, that adds 5g more and thus reduces your margin.


    Not much, but it is a honest work :D


    It doesn't work for all the materials, but mostly you are looking for the ones in high demand like iron, dust, bones, plant fibers etc. .

  • A little tip to increase profits even more, use regular salvage kits for things that salvage into dust/iron/bones. They're (I think) 5g per use and guarantee you get iron instead of i.e. steel, which is usually higher profit. There are some items where the rare salvage is probably worth it for the chance, but for most items I think you profit more getting 10 iron vs. two steel ingots, for example, not to mention saving quite a bit on salvage costs.

    oh, i thought that the output qty also differs with superior and regular kits. But you are right.

    Edited once, last by TDR2000: wrong info ().

  • I don't know if it's an appropriate farm but I've been farming The Alcyon's Job for 3 days and I must say that I got some cool golds !


    On 2019, after two months, sometime farm Halcyon Job, every week. I equiped all heros of 2 caracters PvE with +50hp runes, just with this. Maybe, long time, Anet nerf drop for this place and more luxon armors (blue, purple, gold) drop.
