Whether it be real life or the in-game life of The Elder Scrolls Online, Gold is very hard to come by. There is no worse feeling than roaming around the streets of Tamriel looking at those vendors with a prurient eye wishing for some extra Gold in your pockets to enhance your in-game experience.
I’m afraid I cannot do much about real life, but this guide will sure as shooting help you out with earning some extra bit of a coin in The Elder Scrolls Online.
Loot Enemies and Grab Everything
Most new players in The Elder Scrolls Online only pick up things they’re interested in and discard the rest. This is not something you should do; especially if you’re on a Gold Hunt.
You’ll certainly come across things that may feel like complete trash and won’t be worth adding to your weight load, but still keeping them is the real trick. The stuff you pick up can easily be sold to vendors for a good price. Also make sure to loot deadbodies, gather plant fibers, ores, animal pelts, ornaments, and what not! Pay these vendors a regular visit and sale the unwanted items.
Make Contacts and Start Trading
If you’re a new player to the series, you must know that nothing in The Elder Scrolls Online is a complete waste. Like I’ve aforementioned, it’s a good idea to salvage everything even if you don’t plan to use it in anyway.
There are six professions in The Elder Scrolls Online and all of them require certain ingredients, materials, or chemical reagents. There are good chances that you might stumble across some rare items which might not be useful to you, but they will certainly be useful to other players who are interested in crafting and lack certain materials.
Grab these materials and put them up on sale for a price. In this way, you will establish a relationship with other players and a long-term trading profession.
And while we’re on the subject of Trading, a good way to do this is to buy all stock of a particular material; say, Silver. In this way, other players will not be able to buy it from any other place and you would be able to sale it at your desired price point.
Selling Crafted Items
If you don’t wish to sale your items like aforesaid, you can always keep them to yourself and start crafting different items. This adds a nice little touch to the game and is very fun to be crafter! You can salvage these items and begin your own crafting profession.
In a world like Tamriel, danger lurks in every nook and corner and other players will always approach you for Weapon, Armor, Potions, and Poisons. Our in-depth guides on each profession will make sure that you become a Master Craftsman in no time.
Complete Dungeons and Dark Anchors
There are tons of Dungeons (Solo and Public) in The Elder Scrolls Online and these Dungeons are usually swarming with useful items. These items can be sold for Gold to local vendors and other players.
Fortunately, there is no restriction on playing these Dungeons for infinite times. By doing so, you’ll not only rack up Experience Points faster than other players, but you will also grab useful and rare items.
Select a Dungeon, get good at it, and start earning Gold. The only downside of this method is monotony.
Another way of earning Gold is completing Dark Anchor Events. You’ll find a good amount of these events in Tamriel and completing them will provide you with rare items that can be sold or de-constructed for a higher price.
