Video of Farming 21 Gold in 15 Minutes

As you learn strategies from this blog and start to create your own, I hope that you quickly pick up on the responsibilities you naturally acquire. Excessive use of any one strategy has a negative effect on everyone here as well as your own market. Be sure to think outside the box and use the ideas I deliver to your brain as starting points, not road maps to success.

Tomorrow and the following three days I will be revealing two powerful flipping strategies as well as two crazy salvaging markets. Take those ideas and go off on your own to find similar markets. Spread yourselves out and the impact will be minimum. If you just take what I say and repeat the exact same market, well things aren't guaranteed to go your way, but I guess they never are.

That's why it's important to be able to think on your feet. It's a global economy, and all it takes is one post (from sites similar to this one) and your market is temporarily hosed.

One last point, related to what I just said: a lot of people email me that they went through my archives and found amazingly profitable niches. They were, of course, ruined at the time of my posting, but weeks later the markets returned to normal. Don't forget to go back through the archives from time to time!

Like this strategy, that I just checked in on and made 21 gold in 15 minutes!

    This strategy seems to be dangerous. I will try it with 5 golds I think.

    Thanks for sharing !

    Spent 10 gold and have a net loss of 1.5 gold. Don't do it.

    It's completely random. Glad you only lost 1.5 gold. Also, be sure to use buy orders to get your runes, as well as attempt to reduce costs and increase profit.

    I have made the same with sigils the other day. 280 major sigil bought with buy orders for around 8 gold, and managed to get out 14 gold. So i had a clear 6 gold profit this time. This method is not a sure profit and you must pray for the god of luck to love you a bit.

    I lost almost 4 golds with that mystic forge. Why ? Because 1/3 of superiors runes that I won were bounded so I cannot resold them.

    I think that a such random strategy is not to advocate in farming golds or only when you have so any golds that you want to spend it playing lotery. :)

    If this strategy was not so random, it would be a very good strategy.

    Yes, its pretty dangerous. Sometimes i get a win of 2 Gold investing 4 Gold, sometimes i loose 3 Gold.

    What the video owner claimed as profit is actually just his turnover (investment+profit OR investment-profit)
    While he invested 9g and had a return of 21g, his profit would actually be 12g, no? Just some small detail.

    Also, I have done this with dyes as well (got losses of 20g up to PROFIT (turnover - investment) of 45+g), and you need to invest a certain amount of gold to reduce your loss-probability, speculating for a high profit item, or multiple.

    This is pure gambling and only to use if you enjoy a little bit of a thrill.
    If you want to do this always use money that you don't really need, else you will be really mad if you lost it at some point.

    Put in 20 gold into runes and got back 10 gold. This is not for the faint of heart.

    Lot of people trying this so the profit will be hurt . Also, I hope everyone is being patient and getting good buy orders.

    I was wondering why runes suddenly skyrocketed this weekend. They were starting to come back down after your last post some weeks ago. I do this strategy a lot and it is not for the feint of heart. You need to put at least 1,000-1,500 runes through the forge to average out the RNG. Otherwise luck will bite you or bless you depending on how he is feeling at the time.

    This is not a strategy that is quick and easy. Spending 1 hour - 2 hours at the forge is not pleasant, but it can be lucrative if you do it right. If you want quick and easy, stick to flipping or salvaging.
