ESO Gold Seller Comparison

Like any other MMO, acquiring gold in ESO can be a real chore. Finding the optimal strategies for earning it can help speed things up, but that is still time that could be better spent doing something a lot more interesting or fun.

Naturally, many gold buying sites have begun offering their services for this new title, and like every other gold selling market there are services whose quality is questionable at best. To help you avoid the pitfalls awaiting anyone new to the gold buying arena, I have compared five of the more well known services that have begun offering gold in ESO.

In Game Delivery

In Game Delivery, or IGD, is the most trusted gold seller. The prices here are a little higher than others, but the gold is usually delivered in a timely manner.

igd logoThe first thing to note is that they have the fastest delivery around. While other services can take a few hours at the fastest to deliver the goods, IGD boasts an average delivery time of less than 30 minutes for the majority of their orders, making it an exceptionally fast service when they have gold in stock.

The ordering options available cover a wide range of gold amounts, giving players a considerable number of options to choose from, and their excellent customer support helps with any issues or questions consumers might have during the process.

IGD is listed as the second most trusted game currency seller on MMOBux, a popular and trustworthy site that reviews game currency sellers.

Koala Credits

Logo-Koala-CreditsKoala Credits is a veteran to the gold selling business and currently the most trusted gold seller around according to MMOBux.

Koala Credits provides excellent customer service, with some reviews claiming it to be the best in the industry. Indeed, compared to other services I have not heard any serious complaints about the customer service provided by this seller, which must mean something since people on the Internet can be prone to complain about even the smallest of problems.

The prices and options offered by Koala are a bit lower than IGD, though it can take a little longer to get your gold than IGD. However, their deliveries is still be very speedy, with most customers reporting their gold delivered within 12 hours.

Guy4Game

guy4gameThis service is very comparable to iGXE, both in what they offer and their prices. There are a couple of excellent points, however, that differentiates G4G from the competition. Guy4Game reliably delivers the gold within a 12 to 24 hour period.

They also have a wider list of options regarding how much gold they sell in their ordering options. Their prices tend to match or even be a little lower than iGXE’s for these options.

One thing that keeps them from being better than iGXE in my mind is the lack of a custom order option. You cannot order, say, 75K gold from G4G since it is not an option in their order list. This is just a small nitpick, really, as the service is very satisfactory as a whole.

Avatar Bank

While last on the list, Avatar Bank should not always be your last choice. They are as reliable as any other gold seller listed here, and they are ranked highly on MMOBux as well.

avatarbanklogo

The prices at Avatar Bank are fairly standard, though at times their prices can be the lowest around. Their deliveries are quick if they have supplies available on your server.

Delays do not seem to be too common or pronounced, though, so as long as you are not in a considerable rush to get your gold this is an excellent seller to buy gold from. Those looking for speedier deliveries may need to go to other sellers.

Summary

The four sellers listed and talked about here are high quality gold merchants. They each have their particular strengths that will make them attractive to different people. Some are cheaper, others are faster, and three of them are the top ranked sellers on MMOBux, but they are all trustworthy and fulfil their orders reliably.

In-depht Gold Making Guide in the Elder Scrolls Online: What You Should Do to Make Wealth

Making gold in Elder Scrolls Online comes down to three basic premises: Quests, trade with other players and optimal farming locations. Taking part in all three activities will grant you the highest gold income as well as supply you with all the goods necessary to equip your character and purchase quality-of-life items such as mounts, full bank access and more.

This gold making guide will be divided into the three basic premises as noted above and will outline how to best proceed through the game in order to obtain all the gold you could ever need. As a note, some of these strategies are intended to work best during the game’s early post-launch period. As the game ages, most of these strategies will likely see significant changes.

If you do not have enough time to make ESO gold yourself, you can buy it from RMT suppliers. I personally recommend MMOBUX.com where you can find out which shop offer the cheapest price as well as read reviews from other buyers.

Questing and General Tips

questing in eso

As odd as it may seem, questing is actually one of the best sources of gold in ESO. This is partially due to the fact that questing is also the best source of experience while leveling. The two pair together nicely. The game was structured this way intentionally due to the high focus on the story.

The fact that it’s possible to quest in other Veteran alliance zones after hitting level 50 also encourages this idea. The Veteran quests are ESO’s answer to daily quests, essentially, and are slightly more interesting to take part in. The repeatable quests in Cyrodil also offer decent gold rewards, but must be completed while in quite the risky zone where PvP lurks behind every corner. Cyrodil becomes playable after hitting level 10.

While leveling, make sure to do all of the side quests along the way. Make sure to also do the Mages Guild and Fighters Guild quests as soon as possible. While there are no quest “hubs” per say in ESO, it’s far more efficient to have as many quests as possible when you run out into the world. This cuts down on the time you spend running back and forth. Each side quest completed also gives you more gold and more quest rewards. Both make leveling easier.

When spending eso gold on items during the leveling process, give preference to upgrading your bank space and inventory space. Extra bank space can be purchased from any bank owner. Banks are found in any of the major cities and are marked on the map with an icon of a treasure box.

Additional inventory space can be purchased from a backpack vendor. These vendors can also be found in major towns. They’re sometimes near bank locations or sometimes in their own building marked with an icon of a bag.

Three locations for backpack vendors:

backpack vendor in davon's watch

Vulkhel Guard: Backpacks can be bought in The Handy Haversack, northeast of the marketplace with the forge, etc.

Daggerfall: Backpacks can be bought right next to the bank, at an outdoor wagon.

Davon’s Watch: Backpacks can be purchased in the southeastern corner of the Market District.

The first inventory upgrade can be purchased for only 400 gold. The second costs 2000 gold. Both are still invaluable. Each upgrade adds an extra 10 spots to your inventory.

To save yourself a bit of bag space, you should keep crafting materials inside your bank whenever possible. Since you can craft with items that are within your bank, this makes it easy to leave crafting items there and utilize your inventory to pick up as much loot as possible.

One more tip: You can save yourself a bit of gold by waiting to purchase your first mount until you have enough gold for the more expensive, faster mounts. If you’re good at making gold, the difference between the first mount (17.2k gold) and the second mount (42.7k gold) won’t seem too high, but the speed difference between the two mounts is significant.

Optimal Farming Locations

Humanoid Camps

eso fight with humanoid enemy

Despite the fact that quests take you all over Tamriel, there are definitely areas of the game where it’s more beneficial to slay enemies randomly in search of rare goods than in other areas. Any area with humanoid enemies, unsurprisingly, is usually an area ideal for money-making. Humanoid enemies drop small amounts of gold plus have a higher chance of dropping bind-on-equip pieces of equipment or provisioning recipes such as green or blue items. Some of these can be sold or traded to other players. They also vendor for a decent chunk of change if you can’t find a potential buyer.

Some humanoid enemies such as Daedric enemies also drop Soul Gems which come in handy in all areas of the game. These let you resurrect in place as well as act as an agent for resurrecting other players (which is especially useful when you start to PvP). Soul Gems are purchasable off vendors found in most major towns, but every bit of saved money often helps, especially during the early levels.

There are areas where farming humanoid enemies is extremely easy due to quick respawn rates. Just make sure you’re powerful enough to take on more than one enemy at a time and have plenty of free bag space. Most of these areas tend to be world dungeons or caverns. One of the first areas that’s excellent is the Ondil area in Auridon.

As a general rule of thumb, most random humanoid enemies you come across are worth killing while random beasts, demons and other enemies might not be. Most beasts and demons drop items that can be vendored, however, so it’s not useless to kill them. Beasts also often drop raw leather goods for crafting

Player Trade

elder scrolls online player trade

Since there is no auction house in Elder Scrolls Online it is up to the players to trade and sell amongst themselves. Trading and selling is one of the best ways to earn gold in the game, however, especially when the game is newly-released and certain goods are high in demand. If you wish to make a lot of gold by selling items to other players, you’re going to have to pay attention to the market and to what people are asking for.

It’s also important to join one of the player-ran crafting/trading guilds. There are multiple trading guilds on each megaserver and there are more created every day. Players can join up to five guilds at a time, so joining one is a great idea for players who are trying to earn as much gold as they can. Pay attention to what your guildmates ask for or request. Ask if anyone would like to buy or trade for the items you have to sell. Help others and they will likely return the favor and pad your pocketbook. The zone channels can also be used to try and meet new customers.

Player-created guilds will also eventuality let guildmates place items on the guild market, which is an auction house-like feature but for players belonging to that guild. You can place items for sale using the interface and they can buy them even if you’re not online. This is one of the best ways to sell crafted goods or bulk raw materials.

If you do not have enough time to make ESO gold yourself, you can buy it from RMT suppliers. I personally recommend MMOBUX.com where you can find out which shop offer the cheapest price as well as read reviews from other buyers.

Sell Crafted Items

If you are a crafter, selling crafted goods that are high in demand will be one of the best ways to earn gold. This is especially the case as players near the level cap. Crafted equips such as weapons and armor pieces will fetch a large price, but glyphs and potions will also be highly valuable for endgame players.

Crafting may be time consuming, but it can also be very lucrative. Again, pay attention to what players are asking for. Look for any type of hole in the current marketplace. Find or create items to fill in that hole and you will have no trouble earning all the gold you could ever want.

Making Money by Crafting in ESO Part 2

Selling Materials
Other crafting professions have a good chance of selling things as well, although selling consumable items from alchemy and provisioning can readily make you wealthy. In order to get the items they want, all players need to level their crafting. However, they might not all want to resort to hunting for resources. Gathering crafting material may be a primary focus for some crafters. Different types of material will prove to be in great demand.

Node Materials
Harvesting resource nodes that spawn randomly throughout the game world may provide one with basic items such as ore and wood. Voracious crafters will need more of these resources for leveling, and will anxiously pay big bucks for them.

Trait Stones
Traits can enhance all crafted gear. A crafter will need the correct stone in order to enhance an item with a trait. These stones can be gained by destroying other items with traits or be found as loot. Trait stones will have a high value although not very common.

Enhancement Materials
An additional material type is available for clothing, blacksmithing and woodworking. This allows items to be upgraded, dramatically improving their stats without increasing their level. There are five level possible to all items namely, normal, fine, superior, epic, and legendary. In order to upgrade the weapon, each level requires a different, and increasingly rare and valuable, material. Upgrading a weapon is a percentage chance so many copies of these materials will be needed. And only when five portions of the material are used will it reach 100. These materials can be gained by destroying other items or be found as loot.

To gain materials doesn’t necessarily mean to run all over the map mining nodes. The more valuable stones and enhancement materials can be gained by destroying valuable items or be found as loot. Crafters who chose to do this can grind precious mobs or bosses for loot, put skill points into the proper skill that impacts deconstructing, and sell off the useful materials they got.

Hirelings
Using the hireling passive ability is the last option for gathering gold from crafting. Every 24 hours, the player is granted a random assortment of crafting materials for free when this ability is unlocked. This can be used in crafting or to supplement materials to sell. There is a chance for higher level materials or items although most of the materials given are node materials.

Making Money by Crafting in ESO Part 1

eso25

There are excellent money-making machines for players in the ESO, and they are the game’s robust crafting system. In ESO, many of its crafting’s several aspects make it different from many other games and dramatically affects the way players use it to make money in ESO.

No Exclusions in Crafting
Every character in ESO can perform every crafting activity. Exclusions or limits only force players to choose which professions they want on a character. In ESO, they are inexistent. For crafters, this is both good and bad. Good because, in order to get access to all of the crafting, players don’t need to have four or five alts. Bad because there is slightly less overall demand for trade between players since every player can theoretically craft everything they need. What it needs, then, to turn crafting into a consistent gold maker is to know the kinds of things that will still be in demand in ESO. That will significantly free up plenty of time meant for other gaming activities.

How to best turn crafting into gold, read on:

  • Focus on Consumable Items
    To make high-value weapons and armor that they will need, most players will do their own crafting. However, for professions that craft consumables needed by everyone, players might neglect to stuff extra skill points into them. This means that for crafters who wish to sell their creations for profit, alchemy and provisioning will be among the most valued professions.

  • Alchemy
    Various buffs gained by players are made possible by potions created thru alchemy. They can buy health, magicka and stamina potions from vendors. But specialty potions, such as the ones that increase magicka regeneration or weapon damage, are created by alchemists. For the various plant reagents that they will need for crafting, an alchemist will have to search far and wide. Knowing which reagents combine into making the most valuable effects is also a requirement for them.

  • Provisioning
    The provisioner is more commonly known as the crafter of food and drink consumables. Only one potion and one food effect is given to every character at the same time. Long term boosts to stamina, magicka or health and other effects are provided by food. Food and drink boosts stored in their inventories, are necessities for players going into difficult battles or taking part in PvP.

    The provisioner is a crafter of food and drink consumables. Every character can have one potion and one food effect active at the same time. Food gives long term boosts to stamina, magicka or health and other effects. Players going into difficult battles or taking part in PvP will want food and drink boosts stored in their inventories.

This is not the only way for gold farming, there is part 2 for gold earning tips.

Locations Best for Grinding in Elder Scrolls Online

eso10

Where to Grind?
There are good mob grinding location in just about every zone throughout the game world. However, it is impractical to grin mobs indiscriminately across the game world, although they are spread far and wide. Small areas that have a high concentration of mobs are prime locations for mob grinding.

Overland Locations
Across Tamriel, are many location that are concentrated with mobs. These includes battlefields, ruins, and camps. In these locations, players can destroy large numbers of mobs which tend to spawn pretty quickly. Competing with other players for mob kills is the greatest disadvantage to overland locations.

Dark Fissures and Dark Anchors
Some specific types of overland locations double as some kind of a public event. These small opening to Oblivion are called dark fissures. They spawn several waves of daedra to kill for experience and valuable loot. These fissures spawn at random and are meant to be soloed with a difficult boss in the end. Group events that occur at specific map locations are called dark anchors. Not only do these anchors provide very good loot to visitors, they also provide an organic and excellent group challenge. When completed, dark anchors close and reset after a given amount of time.

Public Dungeons
There are two dungeon types in ESO and one of them is the public dungeon. It is an old concept that is being revived in ESO, although it may seem strange to many MMO gamers. Any player that enter the public dungeon are all together as it is not instanced. It is one of the best places of all to mob grind, the easiest way to farm gold. In a public dungeon, the spawn rate of mobs is very fast. For a competent and on-level character, they can solo most public dungeons. A public dungeon can quickly become money-making machine if you team up with a friend or two.

In ESO, public dungeons works so well because of the game’s looting system. Anyone who is responsible for killing a mob in ESO gets a loot that is instanced privately to them. This means that competing for loot on a team kill is something that players will not need to worry about. The same chance of getting loot drops is given equally to every player who participated. The ones who will excel the most in public dungeons are the ones who character build is focused on AoE. Even if they don’t actually kill anything, they can win the rights to many mob kills.

When there are too many players inside them, public dungeons can become problematic. It becomes less fun with a crowded public dungeon where mobs cannot spawn fast enough and die within seconds. These scenario leaves many players standing around unnaturally, doing nothing, and waiting for the spawn. It is better to go grind elsewhere if you are caught up in an overcrowded public dungeon.

Instanced Dungeons
The more familiar dungeon type is the instanced dungeons. Only a select group of players are allowed inside an instanced dungeon. Group dungeons are mostly instanced dungeons. Since they tend to follow a progression and mobs do not respawn, these types of dungeons are usually not good for mob grinding. Nevertheless, in an instanced dungeon, a player can grind certain high-level boss loot to keep or sell for profit.

The Best Dungeons and Strategies for Gold Farming

Massively multiplayer online games require the players to gain a certain flow and momentum, starting off from a low level with nothing to their name, status or power into becoming a walking powerhouse. The process of doing this has been termed ‘farming’ by gamers and is the most essential core mechanic of any MMORPG. Whether it’s gold, experience, items or materials, a large quantity of these are needed for different gear at different levels. However most MMOs make this a mundane and tiresome task of repeated fetch quests and gathering runs which get boring very quickly, but if you know where and how to farm for things, the game become more accessible, fun and progressive than a series of chores.

dungeon in eso

Before any locations are mention it should be noted that MMOs usually have one or two locations that are not exactly dungeons, mostly semi-open areas that spawn mobs with a slightly higher than normal item, experience and gold drop rate. Eventually these areas get patched thus the focus should be on effective and efficient farming and not specific areas. With that said, a special mention should be given to ‘Driladan Pass‘ in the Greenshade region of the map, the mobs are constantly spawning and about 30 minutes of grinding the area will get players a few level and a lot of good loot as well as gold. Hurry up and farm the area before it’s patched.

However, the best places are the actual dungeon areas, be it public dungeons or instances. A common mistake people make is to leave the dungeon after the initial run after the final boss is cleared. Everyone leaves the dungeon to go sell loot and craft new items. This is a very big mistake because the way chest and heavy bags spawn in Elders scrolls online is different from other games. Not all the chests and bags spawn at the beginning of the dungeon instance but rather over a period of time. This means that in order to be effective and properly farm dungeons players should back track after the mobs are cleared in order to retrieve the newly spawned chests and bags. The percentage gain in loot and experience is around 30%-40% more than what you would carry away if you just left the instance after beating the boss. The extra loot makes every dungeon super profitable especially if you do not get enough loot from the initial run as other are faster to loot than you are. This method is tried and tested and makes any dungeon instance a lucrative run.

Tips and Tricks to Execute Skills and Abilities in Elder Scrolls Online

eso sorcerer video

Each class in ESO can select 5 hotbar abilities at a time, which are chosen from their class pool of abilities. This does not mean you have 5 abilities in the game, but this means that you can only use 5 abilities at a time in combat. It’s important to make that distinction. These abilities have no cooldown, but cost either stamina or magicka to activate. Each ability is designed to have a substantial impact on combat. It’s not only the selection of abilities that is important, but also how players use these skills will play a major role in their combat success.

When you first slot a new ability in your hotbar, you only possess a novice level of using it. As you use it in combat more and more, you can improve and enhance them in various ways. The final hotbar, or the sixth slot in the hotbar, for every class is filled with an Ultimate ability, which is usable after a player accumulates sufficient Finesse. Every class has multiple Ultimate abilities to choose from, but may only utilize one at a time.

There is a quick potion slot key on the Q key, which is going to allow players to drink potions in the middle of combat. Those potions are going to have 20 to 30-second cooldown. Not too sure why they were so adamant on signaling out the Q key, just to make sure you knew it was there. Seems a little weird. There’s going to be other things on top of that. There’s going to be foods and other things you can do to buff your character out of combat to make you better in combat.

Ways To Make Elder Scrolls Online Gold

Gold is one of the most important resources in Elder Scrolls Online. Gold is needed for everything from repairing gear and buying mounts to resetting skill points, traveling quickly with waypoints, purchasing gear and consumables from vendors and purchasing items from other players. There are multiple ways to earn gold, but some are slightly more profitable than others.

Playing The Market

One of the best ways to earn gold in ESO is by paying attention to the player-driven economy and seeing what is in high demand. Pay attention to what items fetch the highest prices and try and obtain those goods to sell them to other players. In some cases, these items may be crafting materials that are easy to obtain through gathering. In other cases, crafted equipment and popular consumables such as glyphs may be a large seller.

ways to make eso gold

Crafting

Selling crafted goods such as weapons and armor for level 50 players will be one way for crafters to make a solid chunk of gold quickly. Some crafted items will be especially rare and the best available in-game. For this reason, ESO is a fantastic game to try and make gold through selling crafted wares.

Questing

One of the easiest ways to make gold in Elder Scrolls Online is simply by leveling your character and completing as many quests as possible along the way. Quests reward gold as well as items that can be sold to vendors. You will also naturally obtain vendor items and other items by killing enemies to complete quest objectives. As you gain higher levels, quests will be worth more gold and the rewards will be better.

This might be the best way to earn gold for leveling aids such as mounts or gear. It shouldn’t be necessary to spend too much gold on gear while leveling, so by saving up as much gold as you can and completing quests, you should be able to earn enough gold for mounts and endgame equipment naturally. If you need additional help, you can sell unneeded items, crafted goods or gathered items to other players.

Gold will be an important part of the Elder Scrolls Online experience and players will need it to purchase mounts, equipment and more. There are many ways to make gold in the game. Combining different methods as well as being smart about purchases will be the best way to always have enough gold for what you need.

History of The Elder Scrolls Online Gold

In all Elder Scrolls games, gold is the main currency that players use to purchase gear, potions, item upgrades and crafting goods. Gold is also used for utilizing scrolls, transportation devices and obtaining mounts. Gold will likewise be a very important part in The Elder Scrolls Online and will allow players to purchase mounts, better gear, consumables, crafting materials and trade with other players. Player-to-player trade will likely be where most players spend most of their gold since crafted items and other goods can be traded.

Historically in most Elder Scrolls games, gold was obtained from selling extra goods and looting the bodies of dead opponents. The same will be true in ESO. Players will be able to sell “grey” trash items for gold as well as loot coin off dead monsters. They will also be able to trade goods they do not want to other players for profit. This is one reason why crafting will be so important in the game.

gold tradingIn single player games like The Elder Scrolls Oblivion and Skyrim, gold is necessary to a certain point but it is not needed in large amounts for the most part. The opposite is likely to be the case for ESO, since the in-game economy will have a life of its own thanks to supply and demand and population fluctuation. Playing the in-game economy inside an MMORPG is one fun way to enjoy the virtual world while making a profit.

A player-built economy is also its own, unique beast. It’s often difficult for developers to predict what goods will sell for the most gold and which will be almost useless to the playerbase. Some goods will be extremely high in demand while others will not. In general, beginning endgame goods such as crafted armor and weapons and rare bind-on-equip equips will sell for the highest amount of gold. Rare items such as pets and mounts will also fetch a high price.

While leveling in The Elder Scrolls Online, it will be important for players to keep track of their gold and save it for items they need most. Unlike gold in single player games, gold in ESO will be vital if players want to maximize their characters as quickly as possible. Money talks, and so does gold in any MMORPG. In general, we should expect high-end crafters and rare collectors to be among the first players to amass a large collection of ESO gold.

Does Being in a Guild Affect the Amount from Farming ESO Gold?

Like any great online game, the Elder Scrolls Online allows people to form alliances, called guilds. These guilds can work in a number of different ways that give the player the upper hand throughout the game, and farming gold is no exception.

alliance artwork

Gold is gained in a number of different ways, usually from gathering items up while dungeoneering or selling off crafted items. This gold can then be used to purchase some of the best items in the game, which is why it is so crucial to obtain. While gold can be bought and sold for out-of-game cash, most people find that having a large stockpile is necessary to play most of the game.

The advantage of a guild is that you can work towards a common goal in the game. If you have the group goal of conquering a city, there is a network of people who you may be able to get to rally behind you. When combating together, you can farm the gold you need to accomplish your goal. This means your stockpile rises faster than if you were on your own.

Resources are the key to getting gold and these are limited in the game. While some items and gold are randomly generated throughout the various areas, some are in a short supply or only drop at certain times of the day. While this isn’t a huge issue for those on smaller channels, those who are on large channels need the large amount of people a guild offers if they want to get the resources they need.

Guilds in the elder scrolls online are able to pool their resources and organize hours to farm. It isn’t uncommon for a guild to team up each necessary elder scrolls online classes members to farm for a couple of hours each week to help ensure the group has everything it needs.

Having extra sets of eyes and ears can also be useful. If there is a particular area of the game that makes it easy to get gold, you will know about it faster than if you are discovering the world on your own. While much of the game is random, the more information you have on the world, the better off you will be.

While guilds does not directly affect the amount you receive while farming gold, it does put you in a better position to get the gold you need to play the game. When you join a guild, you get other players who are willing to help you get rare or expensive items you need so that you can be a team player.
