I've noticed something of late in the emails that come every day to my mailbox. Many of them are following the theme of people grasping at straws hoping for a get rich quick scheme from me. I understand the motivation, but there is no way to cheat at the Guild Wars 2 economy. You have to play smart and frugal until you amass enough income to purchase large quantities of materials, armor, mini's, gems, etc. Even then, you'll be lucky to get back 30% profit on the money you invest each day.
Just flipping items that I've suggested in the 30 day market guide and flipping strategy will earn you around 30-50% profit for your investment. So if you have 1 gold, that can become 1.3 to 1.5 gold in a night. If you have 100 gold, then it's 130 to 150 gold per 24 hour cycle.
Playing weekly cycles and speculating is where you can achieve much higher profit margins, but your risk is exponentially greater. Garlic has been a pretty consistent winner in terms of weekly speculating, but every once in a while it goes berserk and falls off in value. That's why I recommend speculating when you have a lot of gold and can afford to lose large portions of it. Even when you do speculate, you should still be crafting and flipping to offset bad days.
If you're looking for a get rich quick scheme for Guild Wars 2, you've come to the wrong place. Sorry, but I will help you achieve greatness the right way! Who knows, maybe it will carry over to other games or even real life.
