Selling crafting mats is a nice way to make money in Guild Wars 2
Selling crafting mats is a nice way to make money while you are out and about doing other things. Go ahead and harvest everything you come across, and get to know which materials to look out for on the mini-map (for example, “herb” nodes in the Ascalon zones, even the lowbie ones, have a chance of dropping valuable Chili Peppers). Harvesting can also occasionally earn you Unidentified Dyes, which are always good sellers on the TP.
Profit via crafting is not as lucrative in this game as it is in some others, but there are some possibilities if you’re smart with it. Check out www.gw2spidy.com, pick your favorite crafting profession, and see what you can craft for profit at any given time. I have a few items that I craft batches of a couple of times a day, and it’s good for 1-2 guild wars 2 gold here and there.
