Taking a break from the house tour (will finish, tho!); thought I’d talk about gold farming a bit. I’ve gone through a couple million gold since Homestead dropped; someone asked me if I had a huge bankroll to start with and was surprised I’ve been making 100 – 200K a week to fund my furnishings addiction. They wanted to know my “trick.” Honestly, that amount of gold is not extraordinary – the highest seller in my trading guild made 2 million gold in the first 3 days of this week, and she made 9 million last week. A 150K average is not hard. I rarely focus solely on gold farming; mostly I’ve just figured out ways to make gold while I’m doing the stuff I like to do.
Search “eso gold” on YouTube and you’ll get dozens and dozens of vids. They’re mostly fine, but each focuses on one very specific method, and most don’t work for me because I don’t like to do the things they describe. And some rely upon exploits that have been patched, or describe a random lucky break that’s impossible to replicate.
So here’s “The Zells Guide to Gold Farming for Beginners & People Who Hate Gold Farming.” Like my post on running Dark Brotherhood Sacraments & Thieves Guild heists, it will be long-but-thorough, and I’ll update it if I think of something new or if a patch requires it.
