Best Way to Turn Kharma into Gold

While leveling I tend to get a lot of extra Kharma, especially from all those hearts and quests! What I do to make guaranteed gold (~1.2 Gold per 10k Kharma) from this currency can be summed up in a few screenshots...

1. Head to Sorrowful Waypoint in Bloodtide Coast.

2. Next, buy some Cloth Crab Grabbin' Gloves for 266 Kharam each.

3. Combine just these items into the mystic forge. Be careful not to combine any others that get created from this method.

4. Salvage the items that you receive for some easy linen. You can get cotton as well, which sells for about half the cost of linen. Also, there is a rare chance of getting items which you cannot salvage. Just combine those again to get a higher level item or vendor them.

You'll get a lot of essences of luck from doing this as well as make a profit. It's a win win!

I let blog subscribers and forum members know this trick well in advance of posting it here.

    Dammit prices are already dropping like flies. There goes one of the best ways to spend karma.

    Bah, the price drop won't last too long and the market correction will be welcome.

  1. The day you'll start thinking about your legendary, you will cry over that karma lost in that trick.

    I recommend taking the mystic forge in heart of the mists for this since you will have one button to return to the heartvendor again. Also loadingtimes are shorter.

    Price may have dropped(its just under 6 silver now, checked via gw2spidy) but I'd say this is still more safe than orrian boxes. I have a bunch of mystic salvage kits saved up and a few BL salvage kits, so I hope it will give me more mats.
