    How to make money in this game? I am level 25 and have got 1800 gold, not enough even for the cheapest house.

    The stuff i craft is worth nothing. No wonder, when in order to level up crafting u end up crafting tens or hundreds of those items, and then again everybody does that.

    Got almost full storage, tried crafting today to spend azoth so it doesnt waste, but no money from that. I salvaged it all.

    My trade skills are:
    Weaponsmithing 27
    Armoring 19
    Engineering 29
    Jewelcrafting 24
    Arcana 37
    Cooking 85
    Furnishing 11

    Not gonna list refining and gathering skills, cuz they all vary from 50-70

    You know i didn't even think to ask, i will tonight. But that's probably the case, it was just brief mention, i assumed epic gear lol.

    Which every mmorpg should have that "extremely rare" chance at something awesome, it's such a small chance, yet such a powerful motivator behind playing.

    Just play more. The money will come. Spend as little as possible in trading post and faction vendor.

    Sell ammo. People might buy it and the price is low but it is also from common mats. Depending on how popular your server is or how long its been around you can make some gold with the steel tools. Questing including the town board and faction quests give a decent amount. Most of the crafting isn't worth the mat cost simply because early on everyone finds enough of everything through quests and what not.

    If you have the food that gives luck on mining you can try for fae iron ore (I think that is right but it at least has fae in the name). That seems popular since it is rare and requires the luck buff.

    So far my big money maker is doing the quests in every town, i'm level 25, a little over 2k gold atm and i already bought a house (2.5k), which be warned!!! comes with a weekly maintenance fee, mine is $400.

    Another way is sell on Trade Post which i've only bothered to sell a few weps.

    I discovered through a quest where i had to collect 3 Rivercress and 3 Petalcap, when i did find them my skill was only 18 and they need 30, checked the TP and Petacap was going for 55 a pop, and Rivercress was 100 a pop, so fuck that ofc.

    BUT... many "i want it now" peeps or people steam rolling through the game will pay.

    When i got my skill up and went to get them i ended up with like well over dozen each and i only needed 3, i could have, but didn't sell them on the TP, atm i'm unsure if they'll be needed for crafting later on but, more people have skills up and clued into these situations i'm sure the price has dropped, but little effort potential big payout. Thinking about it i'm probably sitting on a fortune just haven't had the time to dig into the TP that much yet.

    Lame, but I guess it's a good way to keep bleeding gold out of the economy and that taxes/maintenance will be higher in higher level zones.

    Sell raw materials, ammo goes well, if you want to be cheeky, make bags with azoth hoping to get the "increase pocket space" perk, those bags sell for thousands. The trick is matching your sales to your zone. Feathers/ammo shit like that goes great in starter zones, the bags look good in the 25+ zones where people are getting tired of only having 250, but haven't gotten that second bag spot. If you are selling dungeon blues in a starter zone you'll have issues as those blues are usually 27lvl and technically you should be out the zone at 25.

    I currently have about 4k and I've donated 6k so far. To give you an idea, never sold a bag, mainly because I didn't know about them selling well until I made a bag and got the pocket perk and a bunch of people told me they sell for a lot. They are minimum 100+g because it takes 100g to buy the item from the faction vendor to make them.

    This is a response to the guy who asked about the lore.

    There is a Fallout vibe to the lore. We show up on Aeternum relatively soon after a major incident basically wiped out most of the non-settlement population centers—so there are zombies and corrupted everywhere, and only the settlements are safe. The story (like fallout) is told in snippets of found texts.

    I have no idea how these people eat, since farms are overrun, but since there is an actual in-game explanation for why things respawn eternally, it’s actually not immersion breaking.

    The ancients have some awesome monolithic architecture. It’s mysterious in the sense that Stonehenge is mysterious.

    Outside of that, lore isn’t in your face too much.
    What's even the point of killing stuff when it respawns almost as soon as you turn your back to walk 5 steps? Lorewise, does it actually take a long time to respawn or is it 30 seconds like in game. I know the staff has the power to close the source of the corruption but that won't do anything for the zombies roaming around at a farm right? How do the settlements exist when the enemy infinitely respawns?

    Yeah it was just shocking at first, felt like it took forever to save 2.5. After buying the place i had like 5 gold left and it's telling me i need 400 weekly wtf? at that moment it felt like gold was impossible to come by.

    I like it now, but it still feels weird not being able to vendor trash items for $

    So I will say the game looks nice and takes nothing to really run maxed up.

    This will be a game I pop into when I'm bored with nothing else to do.

    Buy low in low level settlements. Sell high in thr highrt levro ones. Peiple essentially pay you to run materials to them so they dony have to travel.

    That it's at launch and there are tons of folks killing shit so they've probably turned down spawn timers to accommodate this, probably.

    Well the folks in the settlements also infinitely respawn too. Lorewise, the more people respawn the more they can be tainted by the corruption; the same is true if you live for a long time, there's a chance the corruption can take you.

    I've not done enough story quests in game to get much more of a feel than that. It does seem that there is something fundamentally "wrong" with Aeternam; like the basic substrate of the land is corrupted from what it should be.

    Or it could be---and this would be hilariously meta---if the story is "15th century seafarers find themselves lost on a continent that is literally a video game".

    Valheim is my go to for that, or when i simply need to change things up for little bit, or need a break from my main mmoropg whatever that may be, judging by the depth and shear overwhelming volume of stuff to do in New World, i thinking "maybe" sometime in 2022 i might fire up my Valheim World. Gawd i love that game, but New World is an absolute home run for me.

    You do get a faction/company discount on taxes for ownership of settlement. And once controlled the property tax can be raised or lowered. The taxes and stuff all exist to fund the town upgrades and stuff so it isn't just people donating. I really makes one company as owners seem silly though. The system also needs more ways to be democratic and have votes for at least entire faction to help pick or something.

    I wish it was like communities and guilds in WoW. So you can have your individual groups but then a bigger group for ownership and stuff. I was lucky to randomly get in to one before they got near cap. And those fast travel costs are super nice for being in the company that controls the settlement.

    So you want a different game. Because PvP focused territory control is a big part of the game, and the benefits of controlling the territory are designed to encourage participation. I think Tera tried that "democratically elected governors" thing a long time ago and that worked out about as well as expected, in that it was kinda a hot mess and ended up getting axed.
