There are many methods to farm gold and I tested some methods by myself. But before, I put the link of a video (for me the better that I found to farm gold (many methods are presented too); YouTube Channel : Kwarna Mania :

WARNING : This video is french, but I will explain to you the methods in english, don’t worry !

Here is the summary that I created for you :smiley:

00:00 – 5:45 : Contrées sauvages d’argent (SW) + CF
5:46 – 7:00 : Lauriers (Laurels)
7:01 – 12:00 : Comptoir (Counter) + Forge Mystique (Mystic Forge)
12:00 – 14:57 : Karma
14:57 – 16:16 : Donjons (Dungeons) + WORLD BOSS (Boss de Monde)

Now, I’m going to present you to the methods I’ve tested or that I know :

DAILY ACHIEVEMENTS (EASY AND ACCESSIBLE FOR ALL, WEAK GAINS)

Here, it’s very without go far, you win 2 gold/day when you do your daily achievements. You have to make 3 achievements of the proposed list. I do principally the PvP achievements that can end in a match if you win (it’s maximum 15 minutes without counting the time of queue !). Others daily achievements exist in WvW et en PvE (exploration or harvest) !

DAILY FRACTALS (EASY – HARD, WEAK GAINS – STRONG GAINS according to your level)

Exactly the same principle as daily achievements but for those concerning fractals) ([FR] voir aussi : https://fr-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/1548/guide-debuter-les-fractales/p1 et https://fr-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/3025/guide-fractales-master/p1[FR]). Of course, the fractals T4 of high level will give you more rewards, loots, chests, infusions but more money too ! Don’t forget to do recs too (recommended fractals). Once you have finished that in 1 day, you have to do most regularly and as much as possible. You can win easily 20gold/day !

LAURELS (BEST METHOD IN MY OPINION, VERY STRONG GAINS BUT NEED A REGURAR CONNEXION AND VERY LONG METHOD)

Firstly, you need a lot of laurels, you spend the number you want to a laurel merchant by buying T6 Materials/Components Bag.
These bags are named “Heavy Crafting Bag”. There is a very close to the waypoint of the palace of the Divine Promontory for information (it’s the one I know best even if there are others, it’s just a few meters to the left when you come).

 Test 100 laurels

Number of gold : 285g45s31c => 282po91pa17pc
Loss of : 00g45s31c+02g00s00c+00g08s83c = Loss of 02g54s14c (up for sale/release)

Gain of : 45g74s45c (Counter)
Number of laurels spent : 100
Number of “Heavy Crafting Bag” bought (T6) : 100

Final gain : 45g74s75c (Gain of counter) – 2g54s14c (loss) = 43g20s61c
Final gain : 328g65s62c – 285g45s31c = 43g20s31c
Final gain interval : {43g20s31c ; 43g20s61c}

Problem of margin of error : 30c of difference between the 2 calculation methods
(Interests/Counter ?)

Final number of gold : 328g65s62c

    for 1 laurel (ESTIMATION)

Estimated final gain (counter gain – loss) : 43s20,61c => 43pa21c
Estimated final gain (final number of gold – initial number of gold) => 43s20,31c => 43s20c
Estimated final gain interval : {43s20,31c ; 43s20,61c}
Rounded of the estimated final gain interval : {43s20c ; 43s21c}

 Other Test : 300 laurels

Number of gold : 328g65s62c => 320g93s65c
Perte de : 6s35c + 7g65s62c = 7g71s97c (up for sale/release)

Gain : 138g95s45c
Number of laurels spent : 300
Nombre of “Heavy Crafting Bag” bought (T6) : 300

Final gain (counter gain – loss) : 138po95pa45pc – 7po71pa97pc = 131po23pa48pc
Final gain (final number of gold – initial number of gold) : 459g89s10c – 328g65s62c = 131g23s48c
Final gain interval : {131g23s48c ; 131g23s48c}

No margin of error, identical results

Final number of gold : 459g89s10c

 Comparison ESTIMATION - TEST 300 LAURELS

Estimated interval for 1 laurel : {43s20c ; 43s21c}.
Estimated interval for the test of 300 laurels (estimation x300) : {129g60s00c ; 129g63s00c)
We got : 131g23s48c. Which is more lucky and better than the estimation.
Bonus number of gold of the estimation : 131g23s48c – 129g63s00c = 1g60s48c

Estimates can not be exactly the price obtained here because market prices change.
Too, the bags do not always contain the same materials and the same number.
The prices at the counter nevertheless remain similar and 1 T6 bag is still worth 1 laurel.
The most expensive T6 material is: “Vial of Powerful Blood” (28s47c/u at the moment of tests)
The cheapest T6 material is: “Pile of crystalline dust” (7s62c/u at the moment of tests)

KARMA (EASY, WEAK GAINS, VERY LONG METHOD)

Map : Bloodtide Coast
NPC : Lionscout Tunnira
Waypoint at south of the aerodrome of lion’s arch for information, it is very close to the capital city ! :smiley:
Item to buy : Lionguard Cloth Footguards (287 karma/u)
Or the same items in leather or in mesh (same price)
The leathers items give more with the leather having a price higher at the counter (by my tests, possible that it changes !!!)
You can also alternate fabric / leather / mesh to unlock some skins you have not had!

The objective is to recycle with a master’s salvage kit to sell the materials at the counter.

  Test 1 (Lionguard Cloth Footguards and sale of items without salvage)

Then mystic forge : mettre 4x the item (287*4 = 1148karma)
Value of the item obtained at the counter at the time of the test : 3s48c

Estimation for 1 million of karma : ( 348 * 1 000 000 ) / 1148 = 30g31s36c (arrondi)

IT IS NOT SUPER PROFITABLE TO SELL THE ITEMS OBTAINED DIRECTLY AS THE TEST INDICATES IT !

  Test 2 (Lionguard Leather Footguards and salvage of obtained footguards)

56 x Lionguard Leather Footguards
Cost in karma : 56*287 = 16072

14 Boots obtained (The others materials were not taken into account)

Materials obtained : 24 x “Rugged Leather Section” + 1 x “Coarse Leather Section”

Initial number of gold : 122g67s24c
Loss at the counter : 122g67s24c – 122g62s51c = 4s24c + 49c = 4s73c
Counter gain : 85s20c
Final number of gold : 123g47s71c

85s20c/16072karma

Estimation for 1 million of karma : 53g01s14c (round)

Therefore, the salvaging of leather boots in the karma method is the best.

STABILIZING MATRIX (HARD, VERY STRONG GAINS, SECOND BEST METHOD IN MY OPINION, METHOD THAT CAN BE LONG)

The objective is drop a high object (pink quality) as much as possible named “STABILIZING MATRIX”. We obtain these matrix by salvaging high rings (still pink quality). Once we get them, we sell them at the counter, simply! :smiley:

  Test 1

Sale of stabilizing matrixx to the counter : 32g1c/u at the moment of test
Salvage of a high ring (pink quality) during the test
Number of stabilizing matrix obatined : 20
Price of Ascended Salvage Kit : 2 Fractal Relics + 1 gold (BUY-4373 NPC Fractals)

Initial number of gld : 264g39s61c (The salvage was already done)
Nombre de po après la vente : 264g07s60c
Perte = 264g39s61c – 264g07s60c = 32s1c
Counter Gain : 5g76s18c (because : prince of announce + exchange fees)
Final number of gold : 269g83s73c

5g76s18c/ring
5g76s18c/20 matrix
Estimation pour le gain pour 1 matrice : 5g76s18c/20 = 28s80,9c => 28s81c (rounded).

META-EVENTS/WORLD BOSS (EASY, AVERAGE GAINS, GENERALLY FAST MEHOD, NEED HEART OF THORNS)

Another method is simply to farm the meta-events. Not only, Not only will you earn gold and karma for the purposes of the events, but you will also be able to win chests containing valuables. You can eventually earn other currencies and XP depending on what you do. Achievements and masteries add to the meta-events for most of the time! :wink:

CRAFTING AND HARVEST (GAINS AND HIGH-DEPENDENT TIME OF CRAFTMANSHIP, ITEMS AND PRICES)

Don’t forget that if you have one or more possibilities to craft at maximum level (500), you can craft things with your materials, what can you earn money depending on what you do ! Your gain, however, will be very dependent on the job and the price of what you will sell at the time of your tests !

For the harvest, always buy mithril tools of preference, you will have more items and you’ll can collect all the materials of high level without break them !
Otherwise you will have poor quality … (PS : Possible to buy tools of untied magic if you need it, but you will have only 50% of the quantity bought in mithril).

FESTIVALS

There are several seasonal events in GW2: Lunar New Year (or Chinese New Year), SAB (Super Adventure Box), Shadow of the Demented King (Halloween) and Wintersday (Christmas). During these times, remember to farm a maximum of daily activities and items to sell them, it always serves! During Halloween the maze gives a lot of karma and gold over time ! Regarding the Winter, presents (“Wintersday Gift”) are worth little but you can have a lot and sell them directly or sell food and drinks that are worth a few coins. For Lunar New Year, there are envelopes and essences of luck. Finally for the SAB, I can not really say, I have not tested to farming gold in this event, moreover I do not really know if it is profitable and it is not the main purpose of this seasonal event (which I do not like at all xD).

XP/BASH MOB (EASY, ACCESSIBLE FOR ALL, LONG METHOD AND NOT FUN)

When no method suits you and you are new, even if this method is not fun at all, if it is your only solution, it will have to stick to it (but it is in the case of the last resort because XP is very easy in this game). Bash mob is about killing mobs again and again for XP, so you can take advantage of picking loots to sell to the merchant and you make a little gold. Of course it’s long, boring and it does not give much, but when you go XP, you will receive chests that can give you things to sell.

BEG

So obviously this is a very deprecated method, but you never know, even if this method is a troll method, it can work. But do not expect people to be super nice and have a good image of you. You can now swing your “I wanna gold plz” in map tchat ! :joy:

Another guide : [FR] J’en profite pour mentionner aussi le guide de @Loup Solitaire.9082 qui peut vous aider (en espérant que ça le dérange pas que je mette ça là :tongue: ) ! : https://fr-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/835/guide-trucs-et-astuces-xp-karma-po-etc [FR]

Last precision: All these methods are accessible to all except in the case of accessible meta-events only if people have at least Heart Of Thorns. No method here requires the Path On Fire extension.

Final Tips: Remember to explore and increase your magic discovery (or even your bonuses of gold, XP and karma from the account with objects, buffs or anything else!), It will help you a lot! In addition, remember to connect regularly even if you do not play necessarily. Log in at least once a day as much as possible to take your connection chests and thus ensure you have better chances to have them !

Now, I hope it will be useful to you and that I have not forgotten anything !

On this, good gold farming and good game! :blush:
