Dont buy the karma stuff yet. You dont really need it. Its far more cost effective to get dungeon gear, simply because of the loot you get while doing a dungeon. Run low tier explorables such as AC for easy coins, or start farming CoF in quick runs.

78 exotics usually have better stats than 80 rares, but they tend to cost more.
Don't buy Superior runes unless they are cheap enough, most of the good Superiors are gonna be out of your price range anyways, 3-6g or more. For instance if you were Pwr/Tough/Vit - 4 Major Dolyaks and 2 Major Soldier or Fighter would suffice til later.

Do zone completion on frostgorge, malchors and cursed (76/78 exotics that could be useful or sold and T6 mats towards crafting).
I usually do completion on straights, maelstrom and fireheart too for the lvl 70+ exotics to either sell or break for ectos (if you haven't already completed - I usually don't because leveling is so freaking fast near the end if you're keeping up with story).
Compare vendor prices vs TP prices for mats vs your crafting needs when considering salvage.

And when you're done with that? Go and get a 2nd set of gear with different stats, because you've gotten bored with your current build or you've figured out that you need a different build for dungeons, etc.....
And when you're done with that? ANet will nerf something or add new content with new items, etc...... so go get a 3rd set of "stuff"........
Welcome to level 80!!!!!!

If you salvage with a basic salvage kit, you have a chance of getting T6 crafting materials like Orichalcum Ore or Gossamer Scraps, depending on the item. I usually salvage my whites and blues since they don't sell for much to the vendors and they are hardly worth anything in the TP. I vendor my greens. You can check the TP first before vendoring but these are usually not worth much in the TP too. I salvage my rares (with req lvl >= 68) with mystic/black lion/master salvage kit for the chance of getting globs of ectoplasm.

Crafting is a big gold sink for the most part and about 99% of the crafted items are worth less than the ingredients that you used to craft them. However, most of the craft-profitable items are in the higher tier and the harder it is to craft something, the more likely for them to have a higher value.
Short answer is, I don't think crafting is necessary but crafting is very popular in this game because of the XP reward. If you have trustworthy guild members/friends who are crafters, you can simply ask them to craft for you if you need to. You can gain more gold by selling your crafting ingredients than to use them to level up your crafting. At lower levels, you can get almost anything for cheap in the TP that are dumped by crafters.

As for what I did at 80, I bought rare mf gear(with 5 superior pirate runes and 1 major pirate rune) and green mf jewelry and did the events in cursed short for awhile until I could make my exotic gear/jewelry.
