So I got into a discussion with a couple players on global and they were saying that explore is the place to farm gold now. At first I didn’t believe them but being curious I had to test out their theory. I realize that last week they had a bonus because of Moneylender but my tests still showed what I believed in the beginning. . . . the place to farm gold is in pvp.
I ran a timer of 10 minutes. Once for explores and once for pvp. I did 21 explores and not counting the two gnomes I saw granting me 22.5k, I made a little over 13k. An average of about 623 gold per battle. I did 6 pvp battles in the same time frame and made a little over 21K for an average of 3509 gold.
Maybe I’m missing something but pvp still appears to be king for gold. What has the forum community got to say on this?
