I think it depends on how you got your karma.. You can trade your karma for materials that are in demand and sell those materials.

However if you got your karma via abusing exploits, then you may have a problem (it seems that some players already have been banned for selling materials bought with abused karma).

I agree with the above poster. If you earned your karma without exploits, you should be free and clear to spend it on items in demand and sell them that way. As far as I know, that should be okay...but I've been wrong before.

i would say its poping ruins out of masterwork gear, because as far as i can tell rune/sigil mats have the worst drop rates

This or selling karma purchased mats on the trading post. I buy cooking supplies from the heart vendors that have the "bulk" supplies for 21 or whatever karma, maybe 29. So when I do cooking, I am good to go. I am sure people will buy that stuff up since it's good xp to 80.

If you have high enough cooking, you can combine bay leaves and thyme leaves to get stew spices or something along those lines. You can get both ingredients for pure karma and the spices sell for 10 silver a stack.

This isn't asking for exploits. Getting gold is a serious concern for those just playing WvW, where you rack up the karma, and gold goes quick to siege blueprints. Any suggestions here would be very helpful.

1) How do you get runes out of masterwork gear? (And how/where do you get masterwork gear?)

2) Is buying bulk cooking supplies for karma and selling them on the TP as viable way to get gold?

3) Any other legitimate means to convert karma into gold?

(Sorry if these are basic questions, but I've been playing WvW almost 95% of the time).
