Guild Wars 2 Gold Guru Trading Tool & Dye Flipping

1. Download Kornuit’s Guild Wars 2 Trading Tool here.

2. Updates on my progress near the bottom of the article.

Have a good Halloween?  I ate candy corn.  Sorry- typo.  I mean I hate candy corn.  Today’s Thursday which means it’s time for a fresh new episode of Gold Guru, ShoddyCast’s weekly show that hopefully makes you a little richer.  Last week I was contacted over on YouTube by a delightful GW2 enthusiast by the name of Kornuit.  Kornuit saw our other video about making gold via salvageable bags, and has been hard at work on the Trading Post.  Instead of taking notes with pen and paper, and instead of having to do math himself, he put together an Excel sheet that makes playing the Trading Post even more enjoyable.  Kornuit has given me the okay to use this wonderful tool in today’s episode, and it is also his wish that I give you all access to this tool also.  What a nice guy!  Everyone say, “thank you Kornuit”.  Good.

Now let’s take this puppy for a spin and test it on a dye flipping strategy that I’ve been meaning to try.

Part 1

Part 2

So despite my original hypothesis, dyes might actually be a legit item for long term flipping on the Trading Post.  If you want to test this strategy out for yourself I recommend staying within your price range obviously to limit your risk.  Luckily dyes have a massive scope when it comes to price range.  I felt more comfortable with the 2-3 silver price range, but if you play more than me and have lots of dough, feel free to explore the higher price tiers.
