About GW2 Gold
Guild Wars 2 (GW2), released in late 2012 is a free-to-play MMO by ArenaNet and NCSoft that features active combat, a skill-based PvP system, weapon-based skills and two distinct dungeon modes. The game was positively received by gamers and continued to see soaring number of new players months after its official launch date. The story follows that five warring nations in Tyria battle against each other over centuries for power. Now they face a new threat: Zhaitan, the undead Elder Dragon. Summoning the land of Orr, Zhaitan triggers earthquakes and tidal waves wiping out cities across the Sea of Sorrows. With Zhaitan causing mass devastation, the five races are forced to unite to combat this deadly foe. Heroes must stand equipped with magic and technological advancements to defend the very fabric of their existence in Tyria.
In order to progress in the game, players need to have adequate Guild Wars 2 Gold, the main currency used in the game, at all time. There are several ways to earn GW2 gold as follows such as slaying monsters, accomplishing quests and trading with other players. Once Gold is obtained, players can use them to purchase items from NPC vendors, trade with other players, repair damaged armor and so forth. The trading post is a fundamental part of the game's economy and market. As such, the game developers created a market as close to the free market model as possible by adjusting the supply and demand of items for a non-vendor based price equilibrium. The secondary currency used in Guild Wars 2 is Karma. Karma can't be traded and is used primarily for players to buy the higher-end items from NPCs. Karma can be earned by joining game activities and events.
However, gathering Guild Wars 2 Gold is time consuming, thus the currency is readily made available by many gold sellers. Besides this influence on the market, the game's economy is not flawless and has faced exploits that threatens a hyper-inflated economy.
Latest Articles About Guild Wars 2
Guild Wars 2 guilds are finding lucrative profits selling casual players spots in their dungeon runs in exchange for Gold currency.
Avoid tedious wipes
By paying for guild-assisted dungeon runs, casual players avoid the tedious wipes in difficult dungeons such as Arah. They also get a chance at scoring loot and achievements they might never be able to obtain if they were to manually run the content with random PUGs.
“If you are one of those people who are having trouble getting a decent part or getting past Simin, never fear. Fate is at your service,” said forums user xmasGhost, one of the many players advertising in behalf of their guilds to Guild Wars 2 Gold. He was referring to Simin, High Priestess of Dwayna, whose boss mechanics make her annoying to defeat.
xmasGhost goes on to describe the Arah dungeon run deal for potential buyers. Players get to have their work cut out for them clearing the mobs leading up to the final bosses, and get an almost guaranteed progression for the price of 20 Gold.
“We specialize in Arah Path 4. The way this service works is, first we run Arah path 4, past all the priests and priestesses, to the Bloodstone end boss. After we have established that the dungeon is in a place capable of being cleared easily we leave the party and invite you.”
“Upon entering, you may check to see that everything is to your liking and that we are indeed on the bloodstone fragment and if it is, you send the gold. After you send the gold, our esteemed leader will guide you through the dungeon to the boss and your completion of Arah path 4.”
Bidding for spots
Demand for dungeon run spots has become quite high that guilds can even hold auctions. Bidders will compete for the limited spots per run, and the highest bids will be allowed to join the scheduled runs.
Guilds are taking advantage of the casual players who want to complete these end-game dungeons but do not have the time, dedication or skills to do so. Veterans will also be tempted to pay for guild-assisted runs to skip the frustrating process of running with inexperienced players.
“Honestly I can see why people would pay for it,” said forums user Wasabi Kitty. “I pugged it the other day and it was a nightmare. We had to have two people drop party and bring in a couple of friends for Simin because they didn’t have the necessary DPS.”
Wasabi Kitty said the dungeon run took probably 3 to 4 hours to complete. “Honestly I could have just paid 20 Gold for completion and then made it back spamming path 1 Crucible of Flame and save 1 hour total.”
Guild Wars 2
While Guild Wars 2 combat is fun and engaging, it can be frustrating to have to kill the same mobs over and over again like a desperate gold farmer. The same goes for running dungeons and fractals ad nauseam – you will want to look for less tedious means of earning Guild Wars 2 Gold. Luckily, there are two alternatives that will earn you Guild Wars 2 gold without the mindless mob grind.
Master the Trading Post
For those who can deal with numbers and have the basic grasp of economics, then mastering the trading post could be your ticket to Guild Wars 2 wealth. It’s all about supply and demand. Is a particular crafting ingredient rising in prices? Then start snapping up that ingredient and sell them a few days later for a quick profit.
Of course, this method requires an intense scrutiny of the trading post market. You will have to spend hours sitting in town, tracking prices on all kinds of goods and scanning hundreds, if not thousands, of price list screens. You may also have to bring along a calculator to compute for profit margins to see whether a particular item is worth trading.
Pros. The sky’s the limit when it comes to your possible gold-per-hour profit. Trading post veterans report to earning dozens of Gold per hour, a rate of return which is hard to match elsewhere in the game.
Cons. This is not for the faint of heart or mind. Mastering the trading post requires serious time commitment, research and a certain market savvy. Casually dipping into it may even make you lose gold instead of earning more, so if you jump in, be prepared to jump all the way in.
Buy Gems and Sell Them for Gold
ArenaNet sells Gems that can then be sold off in the trading post where other players will purchase them for Guild Wars 2 gold. Purchasing gems is easy and hassle-free. Then all you need to do is spend a few minutes posting the gems for sale via the trading post, and then simply wait for the gold to come through. This is the ultimate definition of grind-free gold.
But for most Guild Wars 2 gamers, this cash shop method is a luxury they cannot afford. Or if they can, it’s only on special occasions because the wallet expenses can really stack up when you continually buy Gems and sell them for gold.
Pros. By far the easiest and least time consuming way to earn Guild Wars 2 karma.
Cons. Cash cost and guilt. You are buying your way out of the grind, which for some gamers means defeating the purpose of playing the game. But if you’re swimming in cash and are strapped for time, this con may not really be a con.
