I used the Mystic Forge for the first time ever yesterday. Does that make me a newb? Raydon here with the ShoddyCast and it’s time for another episode of Gold Guru. For better or for worse we put every Guild Wars 2Trading Post strategy to the test. This week sees a Mystic Forge strategy. Specifically, purchasing rare level 60-65 items in batches of 4, then tossing them into ye old Mystic Forget to see what comes out the other end (that’s what she said). So without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, the biggest pimp in Lion’s Arch- Raydon!
So, my fellow Guru Kornuit didn’t lie. Although this is a gamblers method, because it has to rely on chance, it is a viable way to make gold; that is if you can get your 60-65 rare weapons for cheap- around 3-5 silver. The items I tested within that price range did consistently well. The moment I would step out of that zone, and into the 6-7 silver price range, my risk went up and my reward became my loss. Although the tests I ran didn’t see it happen, you do have the chance of hitting it big with a nice exotic weapon. The gamblers out there will particularly like this strategy’s element of chance.
Took four more tests besides the ones listed above, but I’m too lazy to list them out too. SCREW YOU. I don’t get paid for this. In summary stick with rare 60-65 weapons below 5 silver and you’ll be fine. Venture outside of that at your own risk, because I incurred a loss every time.
