Making gold in Diablo 3 is the desire of every player. Buying new equipment from the Auction House with the gold you earn is the easiest and most effective way to improve the strength of your character. A billion gold can turn a character that struggles in Inferno mode into a superstar capable of clearing Inferno mode on MP10.
Given that there are so many ways to make gold in Diablo 3, it is a mystery to the wealthy why most players seem to struggle to accumulate gold. If you feel like you are on the outside looking in, sit back, as in this quick D3 gold making guide you are going to discover the 2 best ways of making gold in Diablo 3.
The Easiest Way to Make Gold: Farming
Farming is by far the easiest way to make gold in Diablo 3, but it is also the least effective. The reason is that it is so easy to do that this is the way most players make money in Diablo 3. If you are doing the same thing as everyone else, how can you ever hope to accumulate more wealth than the average player?
The answer of course is that unless you are farming enemies much faster than the average player, you are never going to get rich by farming. The only way to farm much faster than average is to have better gear than average. You need good gear to farm effectively, but if you do not have enough gold to begin with, you will be unable to afford good farming equipment. The end result is that it is very hard for brand new players to get rich through farming. I recommend other approaches for making gold covered later in this guide.
If you are going to farm, you should farm for something that most players are ignoring. One good option is Leoric’s Signet. The video below demonstrates exactly how to farm for this unique ring:Leoric’s Signet is a low level item that high level players want to help boost the rate at which they earn Paragon experience. Since it only drops at early levels of play, it is worth millions. Since the monsters it drops off are very weak, you do not need very good gear in order to farm it.
Crafting Gems: A Very Easy and Safe Way to Make Much More Gold
A much easier and faster way to make gold in Diablo 3 is by crafting gems. When deciding on what gem type to use, you can use the gem calculator mentioned in the video guide. This will tell you if a certain craft is profitable enough before you spend the money on the gems and tomes.
The best part about crafting gems is that it not only provides gold at a faster rate than the average person can farm, but it also can be done while away from the keyboard. You can set up an hour or so worth of crafting and go do something else, returning to the computer to several million gold in profit!
