Check Your Deposited Collectibles for Gold

Have you taken a peak at your deposited collectibles? If not, then you might want to check and see how much gold is sitting in there waiting to be used. Every few days I go through and process what's in there. If the items won't sell for a profit on the trading post, then I check to see if the mystic forge will take them. If memory serves me well, then you can combine mystic forge stones with jewelry to try and improve your combinations at the forge. Obviously you can take some of your collectibles and craft more valuable items as well.

On any given day, I might find as much as three or four gold just sitting in my collectible storage tab. Why let that go to waste? Be sure to check and get into the habit of unloading those materials every so often. What's more, if you go over 250 of any collected material then they will have to be stored in your bank or personal bags.

In case you have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about... this is where your collectible storage tab is:

You can double click items in the collectible storage area to place them in your bags. I wouldn't recommend right clicking each one individually to sell on the trading post, especially since normally you have dozens of different items worth selling.

    I'm always doubting whether I should sell them.

    The idea of having a well stocked cache of crafting material for leveling alts or special events usually wins out over my urge to get more cash.
    Currently I've been selling everything that overflows.

    Keeping a stack of everything has always served guild wars 1 players well in the long run. Its tedious at first. But once those slots start filling you'll not even notice it.

    Having 250 oricalcum ingots does tempt you, specially if you're just short of that first piece of culture armor, but again in the long run you'll be better off.

  1. It's a good habit that leads to sound finances both in the game and in real life. I think that habits formed while playing the game can carry over, so it's important to exercise the same level of management as players would when dealing with real cash. Good point.
