Thats weird. Being level 80 you should have enough achievements to have gotten some achievement chests, and thus some gold. Anyway, go farm platinum and sell it on the trading post. Gives you about 1 gold in an hour. Boring but easy ;)

We didn't have those back in January, When this thread was started.

Citadel of Flame (CoF) P1 runs,
do them in this order and you will make yourself tons of cash
P1>P1>P1> P2 / P3 (reset)>P1>P1>P1> P2 / P3 (reset) >P1>P1>P1> P2 / P3 (reset) >rinse and repeat

I'm a returning player after a long long break so sorry for asking but, don't you get the extra 1g+40shards only the first time each day you complete a path?
Doing p1 more than one time wouldnt give you only the standard 70% of level and 26ish silver?

Also what you mean with reset?

Thanks and sorry for the noob questions :)

This won't work anymore. Back in the days you could far CoF path 1 because mobs dropped money. Now they don't and you got almost all of your gold for the daily when you do dungeon. So don't do that anymore.

Play the game, salvage your blues/greens for more luck, with that luck get a higher proportion of blues/greens, repeat. Eventually get more rares, and more exotics to sell/salvage. Merch the green runes/sigils that you salvage out, TP the rare runes/sigils. You can get really into it and see if any of the whites/blues you get will sell for significantly more than they're valued, because people transmute items to transfer soulbound gear skins to another character.

Either you can sell your loot bags or open them up and save/sell the contents.

Do dungeons as much as you can, trade the tokens for gear of your preferred stat to avoid having to buy the gear off the TP. Once you get your preferred exotic gear, you can take those tokens, buy level 80 exotics with them, and salvage them off for ecto and dark matter, or forge them for a chance at a precursor weapon (I'd suggest getting a good grasp on the above processes first, so you can "afford" to dump exotics into the toilet). Tokens for CoF and above will give you rares you can salvage for ectos as well.

In the course of all this you're likely to have received some really decent drops that could sell for a significant amount of gold.

Fractals is also a good source of a high rate of high level goods.

And once you get a good nest egg saved up, along with a good amount of skill points, you can start putting in buy orders for materials to forgecraft some of the higher-end exotics. Quite often the cost of the raw materials required is much less than the profit you make after the 10% selling fee.
