Newbie Gold Guide

Post by Severian » Mon Mar 11, 2013 1:25 am

The following will allow you to farm gold relatively easily and safely. It is ideal for characters just starting out and wanting to make some gold to fund their crafting endevours or to purchase items from player vendors.
  • Mine mountains for ore (normal ore) and train weaponsmithing (by making daggers and cleavers) until attain 20% weaponsmithing.
  • Mine ore and make rondels.
  • Dip the rondels into fountains (in dungeon maps only).
  • Sell the rondels to the weapon merchant in Nordhaven.
Note that each rondel requires 2 ore to craft, and can be sold to the merchant for 266gp. So essentially, if you mine 500 ore and make 250 rondels and dip them in the right fountain, you can sell them for 66500gp.

Yep, rondels are gold. I made this old list some years ago just in case you don't like rondels.

This is a great guide that comes in handy when you're just starting out and need to buy provisions or if you're on a less populated server like NG.

Here is a list of easy places to get to that have a lot of fountains:
Entrance of River's End (9 to the right, go back and do heroic to get 9 more fountains)
Cassandra's Tower (10 at the entrance, go back and do epic to get 10 more)
Minotaur Halls (10 on the first floor, more on the 2nd, a bunch on the roof, do heroic for more)
