Welcome to your go-to Guild Wars 2 Gold Guide!

We Need More Writers!

Guild Wars 2 Forum Contest

Do you know Markco? If you do, then you probably remember that Markco likes to talk in the third person. No, seriously, have you been following me since the World of Warcraft days (not my site anymore) and more recently with Diablo 3? I've created a guide to getting you rich in World of Warcraft. Followed up by a guide that actually makes you money playing Diablo 3. Certainly by now you've noticed that I have a habit of creating products which help people dominate the games I blog about.
You know that I pour my heart and soul into every product I create. Doesn't matter if it's free or paid for, I do my best to create tools you will love. What's more, I listen to your feedback and adjust based upon it. Today I have one such tool being born, and I want to give you a time sensitive opportunity to join for free.

"TP Extractor" Contest Details:

To enter, first Register a free account with the TP Extractor Private Forum. Then leave the name of your forum account in the comments below. I will pick two random people every hour from the comments and grant them one month of access to the TP Extractor Private Forums. I will do this throughout the day whenever I am on the computer and I'll stop at midnight. So it's 8:00 AM now my time, and I will get through 32 people total by the end of the day. I may even give out a few more if there are lots of people showing interest in the comments.

What's So Great about These Private Forums?

Guild Wars 2 is a global economy. That means that whenever I post a tip on the blog, thousands of people instantly know about it and can try it out within 24 hours (about 5,000 unique visitors read this site daily). Over the course of a week many tens of thousands find out about my latest "secret tip" and suddenly the information is near useless.

This is why I tell people that the blog is meant to be training wheels, not a straight up Guild Wars 2 blueprint or gold guide. The beauty about having a private pay wall protected forum is that secrets are kept pretty secret. Now imagine if each member, including myself, started sharing all of their knowledge in a place we knew was protected by a pay wall. Suddenly we'd all be a lot better at the trading post, even those of us that entered the forum with a lot of knowledge already.

Put your registered forum username in the comments below so that you can win a month at the TP Extractor Private Forum! There you will find a special section on my most recent ideas about making gold, as well as room for additional threads on each crafting discipline, flipping strategies, speculation on holidays, and much more.

You will also get to meet a great community (I know you are because I have spoken to most of you via email already) and you'll have a lot more fun in Guild Wars 2 together. The forum is work friendly, so nobody at the office will know you are on a gaming website.

I will be mostly contributing to the "Markco's Crazy Thoughts" section with videos and posts, but also jumping around to answer questions and help out where I'm needed. The goal of the forum though is to create a place that YOU make awesome by sharing your ideas. I've just put a box around it all and protected you from too many people accessing the community's thoughts. Hopefully this will become an incredible resource for members and a hell of a lot of fun.

I debated for some time about how much to charge for this forum. It has to be enough to at least restrict the masses from joining, but I want it to be cheap enough that anyone who wants to join can. So I went with $2 per month and I hope it's a palatable amount for you.

My assumption is that you will make far more gold in a month participating on this forum than you would buying gems.

Register for free, and add your forum username to the comments below so you can possibly win one free month of forum time!

I want to make this forum awesome, so please make suggestions once you are in there as to how I can improve upon it. If you all want any communication tools or other requests I will absolutely do my best to fulfill them.

I will still post daily on this blog, but I will also engage everyone in the forums and create content exclusively for there. If you're a subscribed member (on email list), a forum member, and reading the blog itself daily, then you're poor head is going to be full of Guild Wars 2 knowledge very quickly. It's a good thing!

    Satsu13 here again, I really should register a username...

    Just a question about the forum: is there going to be some kind of member cap placed on the community (or could you forsee such a cap?) I know you're hoping that not too many people will want to pay past the $2/month cost, but what if say a thousand or even two thousand (or more) people decide that such a small fee is worth it? (Keep in mind that for every person on this forum there will probably be at least one other person who shares at least some of the information with his or her friends, etc.)

    I think this could be worth the $2/month, but I'd really like to trial it first.

    Keep the good work. On a side note, and speaking about quantities, what do you define as a good amount (and still a safezone) to buy a certain item? I know it depends a lot but more or less. 25 is too low? 500 is just to risky?

    I can honestly say this is something you want to get onto. I have followed this site and markco's teachings for over over 2 weeks now. I hit level 80 7 days ago and had bugger all money to my name to buy my MF set. Using what i have learnt from markco not only did i get my MF set in just over 3 days i made enough gold to buy it 3 times. I'm ever so grateful that i found this site, markco your a saint ^^
