Today I want to talk to you guys about how to prepare for the incoming
expansion in a little bit more detail. I will keep this very basic,
since there is a lot of new players who will sooner or later stumble
upon this site and might not have all the knowledge which we acquired
over the past years (on top of that, i do not want to give away concrete
items and / or materials because i do not want people accusing me for
trying to manipulate and market etc but it should not be too difficult
to more or less spot what I will be talking about if you get your head
around the bank and trading post and so on).
note - this is all personal opinion, based on previous experience and
conclusions from discussing this topic with several experienced players!
once i heard about the incoming heart of thorns expansion, i made a
plan on how i want to go about it in terms of investments and what the
smartest things to do would be.
first thing which popped into my mind was one very simple word - Hoard!
- and this is what I will mainly be talking about today.
all the information which was leaked by aNet over the past weeks, we
got to know that there will be tons and tons of new and shiny stuff such
as new legendary weapons, armor and weapon skins, legendary armor, new
types of food and much, much more.
example is that we will be able to buy fractal weapon skins
from the vendors inside the FotM, probably for an absurd amount of
Fractal Relics, but it will be possible! So if you always wanted to get
one of those, you might want to consider starting to save up for it.
what I have been doing is literally hoarding everything I can, may it
be materials, Laurels, Fractal Relics, Bandit Crests and so on just so
you can immediately jump into investments made by these coins or
"parallel currencies". I am certain that there will be new ways of
converting these into gold :)
side note - I don't think the incoming changes will affect any of the
dungeon tokens, so keep doing your thing for some daily gold with the
dungeon NPC's ;)
Just like the last time, some concrete tips for those of you who bared with me all the way through the article:
know - I already mentioned this in the previous post - but I just
cannot stress it enough that everything can be flipped! Literally
everything you find on the trading post, no matter how useless it seems
to you. It is just a matter of patience and knowing how to set your buy
and sell orders.
make sure to stay at a profit range of around 25% (after having taken
away the fees). With this range you should be safe most of the times and
guaranteed a sale!
before investing huge amounts of gold into one market, use the provided
tools to look at some graphs to get a brief idea of the past shifts and
demand/supply towards weekend days etc! :)
tuned for more information in the following days and make sure to hit
