Sup everyone its Ninj4!I have been a player of MMORPG’s for a while now, and I have noticed that everyone has their own way to make money in these games. However, I have noticed throughout my time playing that crafting is not the most time efficient way to make money. This is because there are two ways in which someone can go about crafting.
- The first way requires you to have money in order to make money. By that i mean that you have to go into the auction house, trade broker, or any other in game player trading system that the game has and buy the materials necessary to craft the items you are looking to sell. Crafting with this method makes it so you have to be more careful because you have to make sure that you buy the items for less then what your going to sell the final product.
- The second way in which someone can go about crafting in an MMORPG is to go and gather the materials yourself. After you gather all the materials you can make the items and sell them. This way you don’t have to worry about profit because you make 100% profit. However, this way is a lot more time consuming then the way mentioned above.
Based upon my experience in game crafting is not efficient. In my opinion the best and most efficient way to make money in an MMORPG is to gather, by that i mean mining mostly. The reason I say gathering is the best is because it is more time efficient and it all sells quicker on the auction house. If you gather materials people will buy them so that they can craft their own items; Like I described in the first way to craft. Materials that are gathered and sold usually sell a lot quicker then craft items do.
Hopefully I was able to shed some light on whether you should craft or not!
