How to make gold and become rich!

Seems that a lot of people have issues making decent sales. So, that makes you wonder, how the game economy works and how do you make gold? The game economy is basically a game inside a game. It consists in a dynamic system that usually reflects the real-life economy (trading, inflation, speculative bubble,...). This is why a lot of people like it and play it.

A while ago it was difficult to make a million, now it's easy because there are more ways to make gold. New stuff (like Aetheric Cipher and Aetherial Dust) and new events have helped a lot. Making money is now only a matter of time. Not luck. Time.

Sure you can find the Aetheric Cipher or other expensive stuff but that is not luck, it is a probability. The more time you spend farming or trading, the more gold you make.

There are a lot of ways to make gold:


  • Right now it's easy for everyone to do the Daily Quests (Ashlander+Justice) in Vvardenfell. The quests are sharable so you can do every quest with all your characters.


  • If you have a lot of time, the best way is farming Buoyant Arminger Motif pages. Run around all Vvardenfell, open ALL chests and pick up your pages. You can find it even in a simple chest. It's not easy to farm it. The drop rate is really low. Usually, you can find 1 page in 3-4h of farming but is not for sure.
  • To be prepared you need: Savior of Morrowind achievement for better drop rate and the Harvest Map addon too see all the chest in Vvardenfell. When you are ready, run in circles around all Vvardenfell and open the chests. A page worth 150-300k (from mace to chest one). During your farming route, you could find some War Maiden stuff, like divine gear or sharpened weapon. If you decide to farm it, the advice is to run for 3-4h, and if you can twice a day.


  • Right now Necropotence is still a good and a useful set. You can always farm War Maiden, Sun, Red Mountain, Spriggan,...Go to the specific zone and farm public dungeons or world bosses.


  • Google the bait guide and start fishing. Fish a lot, then, start filleting. You have the probability to find the Perfect Roe. It's a good way to make gold when you're low level.


  • Craglorn is still a favorite zone. Farming around every raw mats + flowers + furnishing mats + nirn. Then you can resell raw mat's stacks or refine and sell Temper Alloy, Wax, Rosin, Nirn fortified, Nirn potent.


  • Corn flowers, Lady smock, Columbine, Bugloss, Nirn root. Cold Harbour is probably one of the best farming places in the game. You can resell flowers or craft potion yourself.


  • You can steal from noble or other npc and find expensive stuff (check on Reddit, the guides for wood elf, orc, breton throne and skooma bubbler) or farm the Nchulefting Public Dungeon, so you can find Dwemer pet part + Dwarven recipe. Steal npc or safebox inside homes.


  • Farm the public dungeons so you can find Dwemer pet parts or the Six House Costume. You can sell the pieces or farm/buy all and sell the complete pet or complete robe.


  • Buy Perfect Roe and dust at a good price and resell Mythical Ambrosia or the normal ambrosia. If you are a crafter and you "farm" vouchers, you can always buy diminished dust and craft the medium exp pot and sell it.



  • Do all daily writs, especially blacksmith, clothing, and wood for alloy, wax, rosin + harvest raw mat maps + master writ.


  • Do yours or buy Master Writs at a good price. Make a lot of vouchers buy stuff from a vendor and sell it in guild store.


  • Go around all Tamriel and spam your crafter's message. Usually, ask your customer mats+1-2k gold for each piece. A full 5 pieces set is something like 5-10k (depends on the number of trait and style).


  • This is the BEST way to make gold. Use multi-monitors, open TTC in your browser's pages, refresh and monitor TTC so you'll be the first to buy the good deals. Go around ALL trade guilds in Tamriel (if you can 3 time day, morning/afternoon/night). Check all guilds using a filter and buy a good deal to resell. Sometimes u can find really good deals like spriggan or other expensive weapon sharpened at a ridiculous price!


  • You can farm AP and resell Akaviri motif pages or sets. Or going farming Tel Var and resell flowers or sets.

That's it! I hope this guide will help you. Now go and start making gold! If you have other ideas let us know!
