Elder Scrolls Online is a fun game, but the truth is that you won’t make much money in it. While it is possible to level up your character and achieve certain milestones, the real money maker in ESO is the real-life money trade. You can buy and sell items for real cash. The problem is that the game isn’t very good at showing you exactly what you should be buying and selling. In this article, we will tell you some of the tricks that we have uncovered to generate quick cash in ESO. These are the things that you can do to make money in the game faster than you can make money in real life.
Join A Trade Guild
The very first thing that you should do to make money in ESO is to join a guild. Guilds are groups of players that specialize in particular trades. For example, the Dark Brotherhood is a guild that specializes in the blacksmithing trade and can be found in the province of Cyrodiil. The key to making money in a guild is by specializing in one particular trade. When you join a guild, they will usually assign you an appropriate mentor that will help you progress in your chosen trade. You can be certain that you will be able to make money in ESO because there is always demand for the products and services offered by trade guilds.
Buy And Sell Equipment And Weapons
When it comes to making money in ESO, it is always best to look for equipment and weapons that are in high demand. While it is possible to find more affordable items, it won’t be nearly as profitable. A good place to start is the Marketplace in Solitude. This is a hub located in the province of Morrowind where you can buy and sell almost everything. It wouldn’t hurt to spend some money on a sign either, as these cost quite a lot of in-game gold. Buying and selling equipment and weapons is a great way to make quick cash in ESO. You can’t directly buy and sell armor or clothing, but almost everything else can be traded. Be wary of buying stolen goods though, as you may end up owning something that was stolen. It is always best to ask the vendor if the item was stolen before making a purchase.
Don’t Be Foolish
Taking a quick trip to the Underworld is always a profitable venture in ESO. However, you have to be a little careful when making this journey. Most of the vendors that are located there don’t want to part with their merchandise for free, as they will frequently ask for payment in some form or another. It is always better to have some gold on you, as paying with in-game currency is almost always seen as inferior. Avoid paying in gold if at all possible, as this will increase the cost of whatever you are buying. If possible, use a credit card as this will also be seen as a form of payment. Not paying for your items will result in you having to return home without any cash. This won’t be fun for anyone.
Max Your Level
When you reach Level 30, you will become eligible to join the Night’s Watch. When you reach this level, you will find that there are a number of professions that you can choose from. One of these is the Armlet Maker. This is a profession that requires you to craft elaborate armlets. While you will probably find that this is a very fun profession to pursue, it won’t generate a lot of in-game gold. Most of the vendors that you will encounter will not want to do business with you if your character is below Level 30. You will find that these armlets that you craft are very valuable, especially if there is demand for this type of product.
Explore The Marketplace
If you are looking for a new profession to specialize in, there are a lot of opportunities on the Marketplace in ESO. This is a hub that houses vendors and crafters from all over the world. On the left side of the screen, you will see tabs that represent the different professions. As you explore the Marketplace, you will find that most of the vendors will only be willing to do business with you if you have an appropriate mentor. A good place to start is the Smithing and Allied Professions tab, as you will find a lot of interesting items that you can purchase. Most importantly, the vendors will not bite off more than you can chew. This is because they want to keep making money off your inexperience rather than lose money on things that they could have fixed for you if you had been a bit more patient.
Join A Faction
One of the most profitable things that you can do in ESO is to join a faction. Factions are groups of players that band together to battle other factions for dominance in Cyrodiil. There are four major factions in ESO, including the Dark Brotherhood, the Bandit Kingdoms, the Ebonheart Confederacy, and the Stormcloaks. While the factions don’t exactly care about your character’s level, it would be unwise to join the Redguard or the Imperial factions if your level is low. Some of the specialties that these factions have are very high level, so be sure that you are prepared to take on their members. This is because they will frequently be very experienced in what they do. Joining a faction also allows you to access their training grounds, where you can learn new skills and improve your existing ones. You will have access to a private store where you can purchase items that are exclusive to faction members. The main thing is that you should not feel bad about joining a faction as long as you are having fun. It’s all about priorities.
In some situations, it may be necessary for you to be on your own. If you have been playing by the rules and have followed the guidelines laid out in this article, you will still be able to make money in ESO. However, if you have broken the rules, especially in the Marketplace, you will end up causing a great deal of trouble for yourself. If you are looking for a new profession or want to change your existing one, it’s always best to explore the Marketplace in search of a mentor. In most cases, this will be someone that can help you learn the ropes or teach you how to make more money. As long as you are playing by the rules and are willing to learn, you will be able to find a profitable niche in ESO. Good luck out there.
