[WS] A Risky Path
1 hour ago
Welcome to your go-to Guild Wars 2 Gold Guide!
This was a very astute comment from yesterday's post on spending 20,000 silver:
"I have followed this blog quite some time now and have tried some really nice short-term money making tips.
However, I figured that I can easily make 5~10g in 35~40 minutes of my time without the trading post. The time I'd spend on the trading post usually takes way longer and sometimes yields less money, since uncountable numbers of people are playing with the trading post.
Also, once I reached a certain amount of money (100g+), I feel like either the invest-earn ratio is too low, as I invest in higher value gears which are not that often resold and thus are usually always flipable with a bit of time but not that much profit either, or it'd take me AGES to invest my money on items that yield me proper profit but are also usually flipped by many, which would again lead me not to play on the TP anymore.
Usually I love playing the markets, and in real life I'm happy for every cent I make, however, after some time and a specific amount of money, it's way too slow for me in the game imo.
I'd love to hear some opinions, or your - Markco's - opinion on high-end reselling. I have read your post about flipping exotics, but the margin is very narrow already.
Also, speculating and predicting future changes is very risky and hard."
