A guide on various gold-making methods.

Gold coins are shiny and involve fire in their creation, qualities which dwarves love.

Basic Tips

  • Pick up gold drops. You might be surprised how much you're leaving on the ground.
    • If you're lazy, get a Doll Bag. When active, the doll will pick up gold drops for you.
      • Get two or three, you can have more than one out at a time.
  • Pick up the more valuable fomor scrolls, even if you're not specifically hunting them, it'll add up.
    • You can check the value of a stack of 10 scrolls at the quest board to the west of Dunbarton.
  • Use equipment with cheaper repairs.
    • Paying 50K+ for repairs at the end of a run is really going to cut into your profits.
  • Make use of daily bonuses to get more/better items.
    • Craft things on a Monday, hunt for monster drops on Wednesday, etc.

Method List

  • Click the name of a method to jump down to the details.
  • "Requirements" refers to the skills/strength/experience needed to effectively use a method.
    • Low means characters with low-ranked skills (with a basic understanding of them) can do it.
    • "Varies" means the method can be attempted on multiple difficulties with varying rewards.
  • "Gold" is a relative measurement of how much gold you can expect to make.
    • Since player prices for items vary from server to server, you may need to experiment to find what works for you.
    • "Varies" means that the method relies heavily on rare drops, or that the reward scales with the selected difficulty.

Adventurer Seals

  • Collect Adventurer Seals by completing daily quests (list is on the page).
    • Most of the daily quests that give seals also give some materials (which can be sold) along with 3K gold each.
    • The seals can be spent at a Seal Merchant for a variety of items to resell to players, such as...
      • Exploration Journal Page 3 - Very annoying to get, required to learn Ice Spear.
      • Focused Rainbow Beam Sword - Very powerful weapon for low to mid level players.
      • Enchant Expiration Removal Scroll - Makes expired enchants usable and removes the timer.
      • Royal Knight Armor - Heavy armor with increased stats, special protections, etc.

Ancient Hunting

  • Monsters with The Ancient title have a rare drop table with some valuable items.
    • Ancient monsters are ~10x stronger than normal so be careful.
    • Monsters gain this title by being alive for a long period of time.
      • Go places other players don't for the best chances, such as Iria and various other empty maps.
      • Monsters are instanced per-channel, once you clear an area out change channels to look for more ancients.
      • No ancients will be around for a period shortly following a server maintenance.
    • All ancients have the same drop rates, so fight what's available.
      • If an enemy is "Weakest" to you, it has a reduced drop chance for items in general.
    • Valuable items include the following...

Avalon Raids

  • Taking part in Avalon Raids (fighting Mokkurkalfi or the Sylvan Dragon) rewards useful items.
    • It's recommended to have high combat ability in order to get high contribution points (which affects your rewards).
    • Rewards include valuable enchants, crafting materials for high-end weapons/armor, and cosmetics.

Baltane Missions

  • Running Baltane Missions can earn you various rewards and drops that can be sold to NPCs or players.
    • Run missions with either reward boxes or a reward chest in order to get a reward.
  • Some drops are rare and can sell to players.
    • Demonic (and especially Divine or Celtic) equipment drops can be sold to players.
  • Some drops are good to sell back to NPCs.


  • Shuriken and Chain Blades tend to take rapid damage from their fast, multi-hit attacks.
    • This type of use, in addition to the increased use of weapon-destroying Special Upgrades and Enchants, means players look for replacements.
  • Fleta sells the patterns for the craftable Shuriken and Chain Blades.

Collecting Leather

  • Fine Leather and Finest Leather are relatively rare drops and invaluable in training and production.
    • Kobolds and other monsters can drop leather, however Ingredient Hunting adds a leather drop table to everything you can kill.
      • This includes things like event statues, golems, and crystals. Who wants some nice Shadow Alchemist Leather?
      • The Sulfur Spider inside Shadow Realm mission contains a large number of rapidly-respawning enemies in the first room.

Collecting Holy Water

  • Holy Water lessens durability loss and increases repair success rate, but has a chance to be removed on death, so players want a supply.
    • Part Time Jobs reward more Holy Water the more of them you complete.
      • Being in a life Talent results in a higher amount being rewarded too.


  • When you sell a load of Commerce goods, you get gold equal to your ducat profit.
    • This method should mainly be considered if you have things to speed it up, like a commerce speed Reforge or an Alpaca Robe.

Divine Powder

Dungeon Loot

  • Dungeons in Uladh were updated to make them more difficult, but also add lots of new drops to the end chests.

Dye Synthesis

  • Using Synthesis to make random Fixed Dyes can earn a lot of money over time.
    • The recipe involves two existing dyes, an Unknown Ore Fragment, and a Garbage Herb.
    • Flashing dyes work as a material.
      • Dye jars (which produce flashy dyes) can also be bought from other players.
    • The output dye will be of a random color from the Cloth Palette.
      • You could get a pure white or black worth a million gold, or you could get a poop dye worth poop gold.
        • If you don't think a dye will sell, you can always use it as material to synth another.

Engineering Guns

  • Dual Guns have a similar problem to Shuriken, in that they take rapid durability damage from standard use.


  • Farming lets you raise crops to sell to NPCs for large amounts of gold with little total effort. However...
    • The farming feature requires service in order to use. Premium or VIP works.
    • You need to go back and tend to your crops every so often.
    • It takes multiple real days for crops to grow.
      • Farming plots on alts can help with the last two issues and get you large amounts of gold over time.

Gathering Dye Materials

  • Gathering Unknown Ores and Garbage Herbs to sell can be profitable as people use them to synth dyes.
    • Garbage Herbs can be quickly gathered from the lobby area of the Shyllien Nature Reserve using Shyllien Ecology.
      • This area has no monsters and the highest chance for the Garbage Herbs.
      • Fishing in many areas is an alternative method.
    • Unknown Ores can be gathered from the first floor of the Hillwen Mine using Rare Mineralogy.
      • This area has no monsters and the highest chance for the Unknown Ores.
      • Failing Metallurgy is an alternative way of getting the ores.

Magic Craft

  • Crafting various magical Celtic weapons with Magic Craft can earn you gold if you have the skills and resources.
    • Hermit Staves work as well if you lack the unique crafting materials for the celtic weapons.


Saga Episodes

  • Completing Saga episodes rewards you with a Saga Episode Box.
    • Episodes 7 and 10 are often considered the fastest and easiest to run.
      • Episode 7's combat consists of roleplay missions (so your character stats don't matter).
      • Episode 10's combat scenarios are easier than most, the boss doesn't even take combat stats into account.
    • Each episode's box will give a higher bonus than normal on a specific day of the week.
      • The game checks if it's the right day when you open the box, not when you complete the episode.
        • You can complete the same episode every day for a week and save the boxes, opening them all on the bonus day.
    • In addition to the gold, the weapons and transformation medals can sell as well.

Sidhe Finnachaid

  • Completing the Siddle Flabberghasted dungeon rewards you with Echostones and the ability to upgrade/fragment them.
    • Fragmenting low-ranked stones can reward you with crafting materials like leathers that may sell to other players.
    • There's also a chance for Motif cards to drop after the miniboss.

Skeleton Scrolls

  • Armored skeletons have a much higher Fomor Scroll drop rate than normal skeletons, and the scrolls are valuable.
    • Skeleton: 11.7K for 10 (Common)
    • Red Skeleton: 16.6K for 10 (Less Common)
    • Metal Skeleton: 23.8K for 10 (Uncommon)
  • The red gem version of Albey Dungeon spawns armored skeletons.
    • It was not updated during "A New Dawn For Dungeons", and can be farmed by lower level characters.
  • Rabbie's basic version spawns lots of armored skeletons as well.
    • It also has better rewards from the end chests.

Shadow Missions

  • Shadow Missions have a guaranteed gold reward upon completion (depending on the mission and difficulty).
    • This gold amount is generally higher than what dungeon end chests give, while being faster to run.
    • Battle for Taillteann II is good for rapid gold-earning since it can be soloed very quickly.
    • Defeat Fomor Commander II is slower to run, but has a high base gold reward. Can be better when using a limited number of crystals.
    • Fomor Attack doesn't have the high mission rewards of the other two, but the enemies in it have low HP and drop more gold regularly.
    • Shadow Wizard has a huge number of enemies so it can take a while solo, but there's lots of gold drops and high rewards.
  • Missions can also drop valuable crafting materials for modern equipment.
