Elder Scrolls Online Gold Guide, Tips, Ways for Beginners from esogoldigmeet's blog

There are several ways of making Gold in ESO. While you can earn gold when casually exploring, questing or clearing dungeons and delves this is not very effective. There are other better, dedicated ways to make Elder Scrolls Online Gold that can help you become rich fast. All of these methods are easy to complete Solo!

Farming Chests for Gold

Similar method to the previous one but this time you are running around opening chests instead of killing enemies. After you have identified the items you want to get, visit the appropriate area and start looking around for chests to open. In areas without Dark Anchors or other World Events, this is also the only way to get valuable jewelry from Sets like Briarheart or Bright-Throat’s Boast.

Addons that reveal chests locations are helpful for this method. To be truly effective you should also unlock the Treasure Hunter and Fortune’s Favor Champion Points Skills. The Keen Eye: Treasure Chests Passive from the Excavation(Antiquities)Skill-line will help you notice chests easier.

Harvest, Mine and Collect all Resources

Not going to craft? That's fine, but you should still collect those resources you see laying around. You can turn them into vendors for moderate amounts of money, or even better, try to sell it to other players. Other players will surely be trying to craft items, and they will always be in search of materials to do so. If you can find one of these players, you might be able to offload all your items for a greater price, or even establish a working relationship, as they can make you things in exchange for you bringing in the base material.


If you were considering crafting as a way to make gold, you were in the right mindset. You just need to know what to craft. Lately I've discovered that alchemy and provisioning are incredibly high-yield professions and so is furniture crafting. Heck, you can sell a lot of furniture pieces for thousands of gold per unit, you just need the skill. And by skill, I mean skill points invested into CP, and knowing where and how to get your hands on furniture recipes.

How to Make Gold with Stealing

Stealing in ESO is not only fun to do but also one of the best ways to find valuable Motifs and Blueprints. Your real profit from stealing comes from the stolen items you fence but also from the items you launder and sell later for gold. Sell only the most valuable items to a Fence for a better profit. Visiting newer zones is better for making Gold. To be truly effective you will have to invest time and advance a few skill lines, like Thieves Guild, Legerdemain and Vampire.

The use of a dedicated Thief character will help you make a lot more gold from stealing. If you are interesting in playing as a Thief in ESO you can take a look at my Cloak and Dagger Thief Build.


The second step is materials. This is the most tedious part of this method. But, I also have a bit of fun while doing it. You need to purchase the materials to make the item you plan for crafting.

For the Jewels of Misrule, I need to get one Rose, one Mint, one Lotus, one Columbine and one Bervez Juice. This is where the journey begins. You travel all around Tamriel, visiting Guild Traders and purchasing the materials that you’re looking for.

Once you have a good idea of what the materials cost, you can set a maximum buy price for yourself. This will be your indicator of how much you can profit and you never want to purchase anything over what you set it at. Otherwise, you’re losing your profits.

Flipping Goods

The player economy in Elder Scrolls Online is where the real gold can be made. Unfortunately, ESO makes it more difficult than other MMORPGs with their complete lack of a centralized marketplace. Rather, player-to-player trading occurs within guilds. Each member of a guild can post up to 30 listings of individual items or stacks of items in their Guild Store, which is only accessible to other guild members. If a Guild wants to sell their items to Skyrim at large, they have to invest in a Guild Trader – an NPC that any player can approach and buy the Guild’s items from.

If your guild has a Guild Trader, they are bound to a specific location and can only sell items from the guild that’s renting them. Unfortunately, this means that ESO’s player market is incredibly chaotic and filled with inconsistent prices. This doesn’t mean its impossible to make a good living in the player market, it just means you need a solid strategy.

The first step is to seek out Guilds who already have a dedicated Trader. Ideally, you should find yourself 5 Guilds that operate in distinct parts of Skyrim to fill your Guild Slots. You’ll start noticing that some Guild Traders have larger inventories than others, and that’s because renting a Guild Trader is based on a blind bid system. Wealthier Guilds can afford the risk of bidding higher stacks of gold to rent the Traders that get the most traffic and thus make more capital. You’ll want to get into the most prestigious Guilds that you can for this method to work.

Next, go shopping: find items that other players have listed for below their average global value (there are addons for this part, we’ll get to those). Buy them and resell them with a markup in your Guild Store. DO NOT flip items inside of your own Guilds; many trading Guilds are run by money-minded people who will not take kindly to you messing around with their inventory.

Gold with Fishing

Fishing is another way of making gold in ESO. This method requires patience and luck. Gold from fishing comes mainly from Perfect Roe, a provisioning material, that you get if you are lucky after filleting the fish you have caught. Perfect Roe is rather rare so follow this method only if you want to relax or are after some fishing achievements.

Create a MarketESO, as we have established, is about the trade of items. A tough, but profitable way to make money is to manipulate the market. It can be a little underhanded, but you can also potentially make a fortune. The basic idea, is for you to buy up mass quantities of any one item, iron ore for example. If you own the majority of the ore in the game, then you can set the price higher, and people will be forced to pay it due to ore being so hard to come by, since you bought it all. It is a great way to make money, but you might lose a friend or two in the process!

With any one of these strategies, you are well on your way to getting rich in Elder Scrolls Online. Don’t worry if some of them don’t work right away; sometimes, the best money-making strategy is patience. https://www.igmeet.com/Eso-Gold is a professional seller selling MMO currency.
