Hey everyone. Alfa Q again. In case you weren't aware, Arena Net has decided to slash the price of Guild Wars 2 by a whopping 75%!!!
That is only $10 for an account! For the low price of $10, there are
several ways that you can utilize an alt account to its potential to
make gold faster. Please note that this offer is from March 6-8 and it may take you a little bit of time to break even (can be done in a week if you are fast enough).
Double the Dungeons
buying an alt account, you can make approximately 40g every day just
doing dungeon runs. That is a total of 80g a day if you also run all
the dungeons on your main!!! Of course, in order to do all the
dungeons, you must be level 80. A few days in EOTM can get you to 80
easily with xp boosters (I have done it in about three days on several
Double the World Boss Rewards
can slay world bosses two times a day with an alt character. A great
way to obtain tons of ectoplasm (from rares) and more chances at exotic
weapons from the world boss chests!
Double the Daily Log In Bonus
A full cycle will yield the following total rewards:
from logging in daily, you can receive 55 laurels which can be
converted to 165 T6 materials! That's around 16g a month for just going
onto your account and clicking on the daily chest! In addition to
receiving tons of T6 materials, you will also get many other neat items.
"Gem Store Items," for example can be rare harvesting nodes which sell
for around 100g a piece! (the wiki says that harvesting nodes are not a
drop item, but several Guildies have confirmed they do drop from the
Black Lion Boxes you get from log in).
gated crafting items can be crafted twice using your main and alt
accounts! You no longer have to wait until reset to craft another Bolt
of Damask or Plate of Meaty Plant Food for profit! In addition to time
gated crafting, an alt account is incredibly useful for time gated items
from vendors (i.e. the Lucky Envelopes from the Lunar New Years Update).
Of course, these are just benefits to help you
make more gold. There are plenty of other benefits to buying an alt
(especially for $10), but since this is a gold guide I won't go into
detail on that.
Note that owning an alt account is not against the TOS of Arena Net. Be aware that once you own the account, it is yours and no one else's. Sharing an account is prohibited!
