Guild Wars 2 from ArenaNet, part of well known NCSoft (Lineage II, Aion), was released in 2012 as a sequel of well known Guild Wars. The plot takes place 250 years after the first part in a world destroyed by dragons. Our hero has to fight his way through countless dangers choosing one of five races and nine professions.
What’s probably the most astonishing about the game, is its open, dynamic changing world with extended plot, unexpected events (like the Gods ascending, natural calamities, political revolutions and landscapes shifting. Variety at the highest level.
NCSoft decided to give every player a gift - now you don't need a paid subscription to play. As of now the game was sold in 5 million copies showing the appreciation from the MMO games community.
What is Black Lion Trading Company
It is a kind of a navigation tool that provides an access to the economic portion of the game. Also it is an organisation within the game. In Black Lion Trading Company you can:
- buy items (weapons, tools) with gems,
- redeem code (applies to gem card code),
- exchange gems and coins,
- get to the Trading Post,
- purchase gems with real-world money.
How to trade in Guild Wars 2
Learning the correct usage of GW2 Market tools and Trading Post will help you maximize you profit.
Technically there is no possibility to edit vendors price, but at the TP price is influenced by trade, so it's more like an open market. Clicking 'O' will lead you to Trading Post in game. After a transaction you can visit Black Lion Trader to pick up your stuff. Traders are located in each city. There is 5% listing fee and 10% profit fee. You can use 'Sell Instantly' button to automatically sell your item to highest bidding buyer. Most items worth less than gold are best sold instantly. More expensive stuff however may require more attention, as they can give you profit.
All characters start the game with basic 20 slot Starter Backpack. You might want to invest some time and resources in crafting ability to upgrade your bag into decent Equipment Box. Additional space may become handy in trading.
Which item should I flip to make profit?
As in most open markets there is also a possibility of flipping in GW2. Flipping means conducting high number of transactions or trading in bulks. You can always search for the best items to flip throughout the Internet, but generally these are common items and materials, which you can upgrade and there is enough supply and demand. Surely flipping the rarest armor in the game will not give a sustainable source of gold.
GW2 Black Market
As a 'supply and demand' rule states, wherever is someone in search of buying items, there will be someone willing to fulfill that need. Same rule applies to every MMORPG game, especially for untradeable items. Selling Greatsword or Ascended Armor should not be a problem, but selling your account will require something more than a visit in a Trading Post.
