Black Desert March 29 Game Update Patch Notes
17 hours ago
Welcome to your go-to Guild Wars 2 Gold Guide!
Yesterday I asked you all where you were at in regards to making gold. Thank you for the comments and questions both through the post and email. Here are my answers to them all...
today I was thinking about the upcoming wardrobe and inhowfar it could/will affect the market. People always have been greedy when it comes to collecting stuff they can store away nicely sorted. Now that there is a non-inventory-cluttering way of collecting all existing skins I anticipate that the prices for some items will rise massively within the first day(s) after the patch goes live because everybody will try to get his/her/its wardrobe filled as soon as possible. Do you think investing in certain skins would be a smart thing to do? I'm thinking of low price skins like the Glyphic/Shaman/Charr Weapons for smaller profits or maybe even more expensive ones like Dredge or even Pact Weapons and visually unique exotics. Too much of speculation on this one or is it reasonable, what do you think?Ravenfield"
"Hi MarkcoI was wondering what you thought about investing in some skins as the prices have steadily risen since they announced the wardrobe , I think a lot of people will try fill their wardrobe and flipping skins at the moment could be a decent long and short term investment.Regardssupercrazee"
"Hi Markco,I am a new reader to your GW2 blog and just wondered if you had posted any thoughts on what might happen to legendaries when they become account bound after the April 15 feature patch? As a result of them becoming account bound instead of soul bound so you see demand dropping a bit as players can now use them across all characters or do you see this feature increasing the demand for them?I’d be interested to hear your thoughts or see a post on the topic.Keep up the informative and helpful work.Kind regardsAlex"
"After a long long grind and TP play occasionally losing a bit of gold on gems I have finally arrived at this stage. Right now I have enough gold to buy a precursor! However I have seen the price shift drastically because of the wardrobe announcement. I am wondering if the precursor price will actually drop in near future or may rise even further? Also I have a Chaos gun from MF would now be the right time to sell it off and earn a few extra bucks?Secondly I was wondering on the Legendary market... Does anyone ever buy a legendary on the Marked price? I have seen the graph shift too damn slowly but the spread is enough to cover bout 3 weeks of flipping.Regards,Fazz"
"I wonder what will happen with skins after April 15th.
especially the ones with less than 100 supply.
Will skin collectors buy them out? ~Anonymous."
"Thanks to this guide i've been flipping pretty well recently, although I am about 500g away from Bolt, and now I'm just trying to buy the rest of my Gift of Fortune before T6s inflate anymore.
"I would like to see how you make money through skill points :)
"I've been trying to make gold on the TP, but it seems like everything I touch turns to crap. I am extremely unlucky with drops (I've been playing since the betas and I think I got maybe 14 Exotic drops, through over 2000 hours played), I tried the salvaging (and have never got a single platinum ore so far) and lost money on that, invested a long time ago in gossamer scraps, only for it to lose more than half its value.
Kind of disheartened by now.
I really hope that by following the tips on your blog, I will manage to finally make some money and can even start thinking about a legendary. ~Anonymous"
Love the blog.
I played WoW for many years and making money was so easy, it was quite a shock playing guild wars two and struggling to turn a profit.
I am still trying to get my first legendary, I have about 200g, just need a precursor.
I am a lazy casual player, work and life have been getting in the way.
My question is how do I max profits and min the time spent in game
I still run CoF a few times a week, it probably nets 2-3 gold.
I haven't gotten the hang of flipping yet, seems to take forever and I usually get undercut.
I have speculated on some jewel crafting mats but I just don't know what to do with my
My fear is that I invest but then I won't touch the game for 4-7 days.
Sorry for the rambling, I had a strong coffee this morning

I have seen encouragement from you and others to consider investing in runes and sigils and also jewels as speculative investments in light of the new patch coming on April 15th. I have also seen people suggesting silver, gold, and orichalcum ore with the possibility of jewelcrafting 500 being released. I have about 80 gold that I would like to invest in some speculative markets. My question is, how do you determine how much of an item to speculate. I can watch the gold market and see that if I time it correctly I can get my buy orders in at 65 copper instead of 75 copper, but I don't know if I should buy 1000, 2000, or 10000 gold? With the runes and sigils, there are literally hundreds of them and some of them are considerably more expensive than others. How do I choose which ones to stockpile for speculative purposes? And finally, how much money do I want to leave set aside to buy up stock in items that fall after the patch but I would expect to rebound and turn into a great profit. I know there is a lot in there, but any help would be greatly appreciated. ~Matthew"
"Not to step on your toes Markco, but for those that are finding making gold tough, I have to say that when I started looking at this blog, it was because I knew just a small few ways to make gold. When I joined your forums, a world opened up to me. Not only did it have other ways to make gold I haven't thought of, but it also taught me to look at making gold in completely new and different ways. Sure it's nice when someone gives you the fish for a meal, even better when you can be taught to fish for yourself.
Thank you Markco for your forums. I can't express enough how it's helped me. ~Draco"
"How do I make my gold?I believe I summed up your point in this post: Don't be sheep. Thank you for reminding people that there is more to gold making than following the leader! The most successful readers of this site twist my advice to meet their needs and play-styles, or they do something similar to what you're suggesting. When I say that item X is valuable, they think about all the other items that are related to it in some way, whether that's through crafting, salvaging, mystic forge, etc. Either they take advantage of the speculators or they apply the advice to another, similar market.
Well what I usually do is check out your blog to see what you say. Usually massive amounts of brainless people that think they can just do exactly as you say without any thought or real analysis. I turn this into an opportunity by taking advantage of other people's stupidity and invest in other stuff that you may announce in the future. Then I sell for loads of profit.
In addition, I will also use a few methods that I have figured out through experience. Some are pretty well known, but through hours of research I came across a few methods that very few people actually know how to do. I can make around 10g in like 15-30 minutes using these methods (after my buy orders go through).
Seriously. People simply can't just rely on this site to be their only way of making gold (as helpful and amazing as it can be). There are many other ways and methods out there that you can use. The hardest part is going on google.com and trying to find them.

Hopefully the previous tips will address your question!
