The Farmer’s Almanac is a series where you can learn Guild Wars 2 gold farming locations throughout Tyria. I don’t disagree that the Cursed Shore is the best farming location; but with diminishing returns, you’ll have to visit other areas and thus we bring other locations to your attention.
This Week’s Guild Wars 2 Gold Farming Location
We are pushing back the Tier 2 Crafting Materials video to bring you a suggested Karka Farm video.
Thanks again for the suggestion.
We will be heading to Southsun Cove, a level 80 zone that was added during the Lost Shore event. Karkas are level 80 sperm shooters that look like Patrick Star from Spongebob Squarepants. They are tough, with a large health pool and strong attacks. I recommend medium to long ranged attacks when possible and adding blind or weakness to your build will help mitigate damage. After the Karka’s opening ranged attack, they will attack at melee range so I suggest crippling and kiting the Karka to avoid most damage.
Karka drop Vials of Potent Blood, Vials of Powerful Blood and Karka Shells as well as a couple types of trash loot and Rare items as well. All sell pretty well on the Trading Post. You should also get at least one rare item or two within an hour that can be salvaged for Globs of Ectoplasm. In the 2 hours I farmed this location, I received 2.8 Gold. I cannot recommend this farm because of its potential difficulty in farming and its low payout. Also there are better areas to farm Vials of Potent Blood one of which I’ll post on here as well.
Have fun with this location and let us know how you’ve done. Have a farming location you’d like to share or have tested? Leave us a comment!
