Making Money in WAR

Warhammer is not really a game about making money. Whatever you do, it is almost impossible for you not to have enough (15g) to buy yourself a mount at level 20 unless you are spending prodigious amounts on the auction house. So don’t ever feel that you need to save money by not buying siege engines or dyeing your gear. You really don’t. You’ll still have enough for your mount even if you send lots of stuff to your friends and guildies, it’s not something you will need to worry about. Spend gold, have fun!

The main scarcity at the moment is for drops that Salvagers and Talisman Makers can use to level their tradeskills. Anything you can find or make that could be useful to either of those two trades can be profitably sold.

Here’s a few other pointers on money making.

1. Do quests. The capital city quests in particular are mostly delivery and discovery quests. The rewards vary from 25s-75s which is a lot at low level, and you can do them at low level. The other quests you will want to do, which are repeatable, are scenario-related quests which you can pick up at a war camp. Do check the quest rewards first, some give more cash and others give more xp.

2. Scenarios. You will earn cash from scenarios, especially if people bother to loot corpses. There is also a renown tactic which gives 5% more gold from PvP. If you don’t have anything else to put into your renown tactic slot, it might not be a bad pick. Each war-camp has repeatable quests that you can take for scenarios, as mentioned above. There is usually one that requires you to complete the scenario and another that requires you to be involved in a set number of kills. The kills one gives more cash so try to remember to keep picking it up.

3. Public Quests. Remember that you can take the cash from the loot bag instead of the drop, I think there is also a tome unlock for doing this enough times. The crafting PQ rewards aren’t likely to be selling for much at low levels but it might be that later on they will fetch enough at auction to be worth taking instead.

4. Crafting. Scavenging and Butchery generate a lot of tat that can be sold to NPC merchants. Any drops that are useful for talisman making are worth selling via auction because talisman materials are scarce at the moment. For cultivating, plants sell to NPCs for the same price as seeds. Goldweed can be useful to Talisman makers so those seeds/ plants are worth auctioning. Some potions sell to NPCs for a tiny amount more than the materials cost, if you have a supply of seeds/leeches/etc. Potions in general are not currently in huge demand, I suspect it’s the healing and AP potions that people will mostly want since the buffs are usually short duration. We don’t really know how demand for crafted goods will pan out at later levels. I suspect there will be a constant demand for talismans, but that most people will either make their own healing potions or have friends who can do it.

5. Auction House. Ah, the most traditional way to make money of them all. Buy cheap, sell dear. To make money from the auctions you need to think about what’s likely to be in demand. Is it worth selling a drop via auction? What’s the going rate? The AH interface is generally good and if you plan to spend a lot of time at auction, you’ll want to check prices on different goods frequently. At low levels, shoulders and cloaks will sell well. Undesired green drops are worth selling too, since you may get more than you would from an NPC from a salvager needing  them to skill up. If you plan to do a lot of auctioning and don’t get overly frustrated at the mail system, it might be worth having a low level auction alt whose sole purpose is to transfer goods between mail, auction, and bank.

Note that your mails from the auctionhouse are in their own separate tab of the mailbox.

  1. I’m not sure if potions (AP/healing) will ever be in high demand unless they are rare or special ones that do significantly more than their normal counterparts for a given rank.

    The reason I say this is because they drop at a very high rate off enemy NPC’s as well as having many quests and first level influence rewards providing them at a high rate too.

    I have salvaging/talisman making and get so many pots from questing and doing PQ’s that I have to sell them by the boatload to merchants just so my bag doesn’t get flooded.

  2. I disagree with Anon that healing potions won’t be in demand. Maybe not now, but in the future at end game they will be. When I’m rank 40 and the only way to get my Renown up is doing Scenarios or other non-PvE related things I’ll be chugging pots but not replenishing raw materials. Already (Rank 20) I don’t have a good supply of healing potions. Quests are not a good source because they are only doable once (show me a quest that gives a healing potion and is repeatable and I’ll be there farming it).
    It does appear that Cultivating is where it is at for supplies for healing potions though.

    I will say that in PvE I hardly use pots. . .but in PvP I’m chugging them. This is normally because in PvE I can control the amount of enemies I face, where as in PvP I can’t.

  3. I’ve been selling potions quite successfully on the Auction House on Averheim. I’m selling them for about twice what the vendor will pay — not tons of money, but every little bit helps.

  8. Call them RIGHT NOW and tell them, about
    the incoming deposit in about 3 days from now:
    But only if you are FAST enough to take advantage
    .. because it is coming off the market within the next
    17 hours due to the secretive nature of this information are going to want to crawl over broken glass
    to get your hand on this software. Already people
    are using it to “break the cycle”, leave their jobs
    and finally achieve the life they always wanted.
    I just got off a call and reserved you a copy, but
    he can only hold it for the next hour and I am not
    sure when you are getting this.
    P.S. What you didn’t know is that the creator of this software
    used to be on welfare and had to ride his bicycle every week
    to the social services office to collect his check.
    When he finally discovered this software, he was able to not
    only lift himself up off of welfare, but actually began to live
    the dream that he always wanted. I want you to have your
    chance to LIVE YOUR DREAM too. So I want you to click here
    now and get this software before it is gone because it is going fast.
