Farm 150k Gold A Day In ESO While PvPing
In this post we will be showing you one of our ESO gold making strategies that can make you 150k gold per day PvPing in Cyrodiil. This method is pretty easy and simple, you will be farming Alliance Points in Cyrodiil so you can use your Alliance Points to buy items you will then sell for tons of gold to other players.
Pros of This Method:
- You will be able to farm gold while having fun PvPing
- You will be gaining XP, Levels, and Champion Points at the same time
- You can use this method on any character above level 10
Cons of This Method:
- If you don’t enjoy PvP this might feel like more of a grind to you
- There are better gold making strategies that will make more gold without having to grind for hours everyday
Step 1: Go To Cyrodiil
- Hit (L) on your keyboard to go to the Alliance War
- Then go to the Campaigns Tab to join a Cyrodiil Campaign
Step 2: Farm Alliance Points – Below are a few tips for farming AP efficiently. Most players can farm 300k-500k+ Alliance Points (AP) a day depending on how good you are and how many hours you spend PvPing.
- Don’t stay in the same location for too long because there are diminishing returns on killing the same players over and over.
- Make sure to use Area of Effect abilities so you tag as many enemies as you can, this will give you Alliance Points if any of them die.
- Make sure to get defensive ticks, they are awarded upon successful defense of a keep, outpost or resource. The ‘tick’ is all the Alliance Points of all killed players thrown together and split among all the defenders present at the keep.
Step 3: Go To Armory Merchants when you’re done farming Alliance Points for the day.
- Elite Gear Vender
- Magus Vender (Next To Elite Gear Vender)
Step 4: Buy items players are willing to spend tons of gold on. Below we have listed the top selling items players are currently buying, if new items are added find out which ones players are willing to pay top dollar for.
Elite Gear Vender Items – These items are guaranteed income, you spend your AP on them and just sell the item. I tend to spend a little more of my AP on Unfathomable Accessory bags because I feel like I get lucky often and make more gold then just buying Elite Gear Vender Items.
- Ravaging Band & Choker (Cost: 248,000AP) (Sells For: 85,000g-95,000g)
- Ring of Cyrodiil’s Light (Cost: 248,000AP) (Sells For: 80,000g-90,000g)
Magus Vender Items – If you buy the v14 Unfathomable Accessory bags you have a chance to get a few different types of items that sell for tons of gold. I normal spend some of my AP on Elite Gear Items and some on Unfathomable Accessory bags.
- Shadow Walker Rings & Neck (Cost: 6,400AP Per Bag) (Sells For: 50,000g-125,000g Depending on what trait you get)
- Hawk’s Eye Rings & Neck (Cost: 6,400AP Per Bag) (Sells For: 50,000g-70,000g Depending on what trait you get)
- Morag Tong Rings & Neck (Cost: 6,400AP Per Bag) (Sells For: 20,000g-50,000g Depending on what trait you get)
Step 5: Sell Items for Gold
- You can sell the items you purchase to other players through zone chat or through a Traders Guild Store
- If You Want To Join a Trading Guild you can ask people when you group up if they can give you an invite to a trading guild or you can ask in zone chat.
- We highly recommend you get an addon called “Master Merchant” this addon will record all sales made through Guild Stores and display the average selling price of any item you mouse over. This will allow you to always know what to sell items for and keep you up to date on the current market.
