Aside from the usual questing and leveling, the most popular means of obtaining gold, tend to be crafting and trade-skill related. Even though gold income from those activities depend a lot on the market, they tend to be a lot less erratic than that from dungeon runs. Then we’ll give you some tips on how to get rich in ESO.


Step 1 Do Every Single Quest

The easiest way of making money in the Elder Scrolls Online is simply by doing the quests you’re given at each major hub. This’ll make up a large portion of your income, regardless of whether you’re speeding through the game or crafting/collecting a ton on the side.

Step 2 Explore Everywhere

Before moving to a different zone, make sure that you have every single area in the map explored completely. There are a ton of different out of the way quests to find that can be very profitable. In addition to that, going off the beaten path will allow you to find a ton of material nodes for crafting as well as dungeons that don’t have a quest associated with them. These dungeons are a great place to grind when you’re burnt out on questing because the mobs and bosses within them tend to respawn quickly and drop great loot.

Step 3 Pick Up Everything

Loot everything you see and gather all nodes you come across. Early on in the game, make sure to loot every enemy you come across. You’ll be vendoring the majority of those items, but that money adds up and it’s a great way to earn it early on if you’re a new player.

Step 4 Invest in Bags Early

The more bag space you have, the more junk and crafting materials you’ll be able to hold while you’re out questing. Porting back and forth to towns and questing areas can eat up a bunch of time, so don’t be afraid to spend money early on for additional bag space, as they’ll pay themselves off quickly.

Step 5 Join a Crafting Guild

MMORPGs are powered by their players, and this is especially true in the Elder Scrolls Online with its guild system. You can join up to five guilds on your account, and it’s best to join as many different crafting guilds as you can. Not only will you have a great place to sell gathering materials and crafted goods, it’s also a great place to forge relationships with other players that you can trade you crafted items with. Remember that items crafted by other players yield better results when deconstructing.

Step 6 Invest in a Mount Early

Getting a mount as soon as it becomes available will let you complete quests faster, getting you rewards and experience faster. It’ll also let you find nodes a whole lot quicker and bypass smaller fights that waste your time in between questing hubs. For your first mount, make sure to level it up with more inventory space.

Step 7 Get Alts

Alts are a great way to make additional money. In one regard, they’re pretty much free bag space. You can funnel your excess materials from your main character to your alts very easily with the way their set up. In addition to that, you can use them to focus on other crafting professions and just use your main as a gatherer. They’ll be able to specialize their crafting professions easily, as the majority of that is based on waiting for skills to completely upgrade.
