    I've gotten to 10 scraps once or twice, but the most fun was getting a ticket when I was after Chiroptophobia. It was like the willy wonka golden ticket, running from the bank (I keep a bunch of chests in the guild bank) to the black lion guy.

    So as an update to my thread, I've made ~50g in 4 days flipping stuff casually on the TP. That's more than half my previous total gold.. That Human set will be mine soon!

    Around 500G, but I'm kind of "lost" what to do/buy with it. =/
    Going for a legendary is an option, but I'm not a fan of buying a precursor. Maybe I'll just wait until precursor crafing... it this ever happens. :]
    On the other side, there are not many legendaries I like / can use. Incinerator is looking cool and at least my ele, thief and necro could use it.
    I also like using my staff, but I'm not really a fan of the bifrost. Kudzu is great, but the only character who could equip it would be my warrior.
    Bolt is ok, too, but if I ever go for an legendary it should be something my ele can use.

    Also I'm not very much into collecting minis, which is kind of strange since I love collecting pets in WoW/Rift.

    Maybe I should set me a new personal goal... something like reach 1000 Gold or so. ^^

    I have about 40 gold, but I have never played the game seriously. I imagine I'd have at least 10x that much just from playing regularly. My biggest burst was getting an SAB skin drop that I sold for around 20g at the time. I like to pamper alts, which means I blow money crafting and getting them nifty things. It's been my weakness that has kept me poor in just about all MMOs ever.

    Let's see I have 35g but if I sell my precursor and my rainbow and my gems i'll have around 1500g.

    22g.Most I've ever had was 70g.I have absolutely no idea how to make gold in this game, other than trading in excess gems for dosh.

    ^ At one point you may get the hang of it. I can pick up a minimum of 5g daily from the tp, even if I skipped a day of playing.

    I don't have much 'cash' now, since I'm putting every penny in my bifrost I'm working on. I bought the Legend last week so now I'm broke :'D I'm very close to finishing it though.

    I have around 500g and maybe another 1200g in mats, skins and Silver Doubloons. (I went on a Silver Doubloon crafting spree recently, I may go for Juggernaught). Not counting all my other currencies though. Hundreds tied up in karma, skill points, guild commendations, laurels and such.

    I never understand tradepost flipping and I don't think I ever will.

    I've got 17g after blowing my savings of 130g on exotics. Never again.

    You buy in cheap, sell for more. All you have to remember though is that the tp has a listing fee.
    You can try http://tpcalc.com/ and you might see what I mean :3

    I think it's more entertaining to gather the mats yourself for exotics. I don't think it's that hard either.

    I have over 2600 gold. A guildy of mine has over 10000. Some guy I know farmed at launch and got about 1000 gold within 2 months from launch.

    I won't say how they did it except by flipping the TP, but my method was making a legendary over time, and selling it at a time where i can earn itself some huge profit. I think my Howler yielded me about 1k profit cause I had a lot of the farming on by last year and finally decided "meh, lets fucking make it and get rich". Who knows, probably even larger than 1k.

    I highly doubt that you got all the mats including the precursor together for <500g.
    In most cases, I understand the other side's viewpoint and how they came to it, but cannot tolerate their stubbornness to not see mine (the right one).

    Since I posted that, I went out and explored the world (gasp! what a novel concept!) and I'm back up to 85g now. Managed to make my own exotic jewelries, only having to buy a few ruby crystals to fill in the gap.

    Now I need to decide if I want to start planning and saving mats for ascended (haven't looked up a guide to see how it's done).

    127g just by selling all prof mats I farm when I'm bored (this is like the only MMO I don't do dungeons in, not a fan of them, I just go on random adventures as I see fit) and not playing other MMOs. I had more than double that last year and could have more if I played more but don't see the point unless I want to farm, level a prof, and sell a legendary.

    15 black lion keys didn't yield anything lucrative unfortunately.

    Yeah I bought that pack with the 15 black lion keys. Got pretty much nothing. One mini worth 8g was the biggest item.

    Get your required crafts to 500 first, then decide if you wanna climb to the next peak. If you can't make that first climb, you're not gonna make the second, IMO.

    I've got several hundred gold worth of t6 mats now. Still not enough to even begin to craft Twilight.

    but I've had up to 140g. Then I bought 100 onyx lodestones. I'm just now getting back to 100g.

    Someone should toss a Dusk my way

    I have/had 2 legendaries worth of gold, mostly by using my credit card smartly, as intended.
