    Curious what people think is best place for gold farming now.

    So I was curious what people thought was the best place to farm gold nowadays. I think it would be between Kane, Dreadnaught, or Moo. Because of how often you can farm it I think the first two floors of Kane are the best.

    Re: Curious what people think is best place for gold farming now.

    I don't really farm for gold all that often, as I am generally well-supplied through Companion Tasking and Pet Training.

    When I do, I want to farm scrip at the same time, so I sink ships, currently The Pretender in Calabria Skyway. Someday I may even get a Severus Snake drop...

    I used to go to frair sand, but times has changed. Probably moo manchu is the best place now.

    Re: Curious what people think is best place for gold farming now.

    I go to Moo if I have time and I need gold, but I go to Kane if I need quicker gold due to slightly less time available.

    Farming the chests in Achaea with friends isn't a bad idea either.

    Of course there are the obvious areas, such as Friar Sand, Moo Manchu, Kane, Dreadnaught, The Pretender in Calabria Skyway, etc. For the long sigils, you can easily get half the max gold, give or take 100k at least

    Personally, I've been too lazy to do an hour+ long dungeon, so I just fight the basic mobs in Valencia II, like the ones in the Crab Tunnels. Easy 7k+ gold in one fight! (That's a number I remember from the loot, I'm pretty sure it's more than that though)

    And if you're a player that is limited to the free areas, I find the spider boss in Devilfish Hollow to give an ample amount of gold; if you get the group plunder chest, it's an easy 2k per fight, and most times, the group plunder chest appears. The fights are fast if you work with high-level players that farm there, so it's fast money

    I usually store and trade equipment away to other characters so that I can build Gold for multiple pirates at once... however the char farming is always ahead because the chests give more Gold than selling equipment (expect for some ship pieces).

    But in this matter, I've noticed it's a quite common mistake for players to sell everything at the Bazaar... guess it's a Wiz habit. Yet an ordinary vendor will give more than Gold if the Bazaar already has the item.

    Personally I seek to farm wherever it's helpful, either for helping other players or acquiring an item I desire... or simply running a group instance for fun!

    This is a tricky one -- the Bazaar will give more gold if there are only a few in stock. However, a normal vendor will always give you the price listed on the wiki page for the item. So, what I do is - always sell common drops at a regular vendor - check in the Bazaar before selling an item that feels rare, such as a class-only item that you received from a boss. If there are more than a hundred or so in stock, check the price against the wiki page to see which is higher before selling.

    You may get thousands more for Aquila and Valencia gear, hundreds for Marleybone and MooShu items.

    Re: Curious what people think is best place for gold farming now.

    I usually go to the crab tunnels in Florenza, as the crabs tend to drop about 4k per battle and an extra 2-3k from drops. Depending on your class, witchdoctor preferably, these battles can take 1-3 minutes. 5 or so if you're a buccaneer or weak to buccaneers.
