Where to farm for gold?

It seems like no one is willing to trade me those gear I need for my ES sorc, so I'll just have to gamble my own. I want lots and lots of gold so i can gamble for ammies and circlets.

1) Where is the best place to get gold quickly?
2) Is gambling the fastest way to get lots of ammys and circlets?

I think the best place is the council in travincial. Those members drop an insane amount.

People use a barb with 2 ali-babas on switch for the insane gold find. I never did it myself so I can't tell you for sure.

Gambling is cetainly the fastest way to get lots of ammy's and circlets, but whether you'll get what you're after? Well that's the gamble isn't it?

I use a barb with chancies, dual dwarfs, wealth and a 124% gheeds and run trav, and just with that amount of gf its nothing to leave there with 200k+ per run

erm people use barbs cos of find item skill basically a double drop. if u dont have a barb run it anywayz. it will be lil harder but doable.

I'm using my hammerdin for gold runs there. I can get like 100k per run after I sell the items. Not too bad. Trying to decide if I should switch out my Arachnids for a Goldwrap. I kinda like the FCR though...

GF is like MF ->gotta mix killing speed and GF to find a good mix. There's lots of gear that has huge +GF amounts on it.

With right gear 500+k is easily possible with a GF Barb. Check the barb forum I'm pretty sure they will have one there.

As for sorc, I found it pretty difficult to run Trav. You definitely need a Infinity merc, and he will die pretty fast so you need to build a system where you don't get barraged by Hydras. And ES on the sorc is recommended to try Trav.

Or you could mf/gf hell cows and sell all elite/exceptional white/blue/yellow items.

Get Chance Guards.

Yeah my Insight merc just dies instantly, so my hammerdin just leaves his merc dead for the Trav runs...

A Ral'ed Steel Shade should help your merc a lot in trav. The hydra damage is a series of small fire damages, so max fire resist with some fire aborption should help a lot. Steel Shade should be dirty cheap too.
Edit: a 2 Amn'ed/Skull'ed bonehew should give enough life leech, and an armor like 3 Ral'ed gris armor will help to reach max fire resist. All three are dirty cheap to get. Of course if you only need your merc for the Insight, keeping him dead won't be a bad idea either:smiley:

Haha. Let me share a build with you, my official...

Gold-digger Barb!

"LemLemLemLemLem" Rune Master x2
"Wealth" Armor
"Lem" Crown of Theives
Rare Necklace with 80% Goldfind
Chance Guards
Infernostride
Goldwrap
Dwarf Star x2
6 GC's with 40% Goldfind
Gheed's Fortune

Let me break that down for you.

Rune Master #1 = 375% GF
Rune Master #2 = 375% GF
Wealth = 300% GF
Crown of Theives (With Lem) = 150% GF
Rare Amulet (Also has resists and skills) = 80% GF
Chance Guards = 200% GF
Infernostride = 70% GF
Goldwrap = 70% GF
Dwarf Star #1 = 100% GF
Dwarf Star #2 = 100% GF
6 GC's with 40% GF ea. = 240% GF
Gheed's = 160% GF
6 SC's with 10% GF ea. = 60 GF

Unless I forgot to put something to the list, what should add up to 2280% Increased gold from monsters.

Rune Master's are formidable enough axes in their own right, though in doing nothing but stacking lems, they aren't too terribly strong without using those slots for other things.

With this character, I can clear Hell Travincal, however, it's a bit lengthy and difficult, and I have little or no mana leech for my WW.

My suggestion is you'd take this build into NM Travincal, clear it rapidly, and you'd accumulate massive gold in very very little time. :)

Edit: (Disclaimer) Obviously many of these items' mods will "vary", so you might not quite get to 2280 right away. You'd basically just keep replacing items with better versions and increasing your GF to that ideal point, but if all items listed are in perfect form, that should be the figures for ya.

I only need him for the insight, so yeah leaving him dead is fine since I can chug one mana potion during the run or something.

Honestly, I'm not sure. With that character, the numbers get staggering. So many digits it's hard to read. I'll go do a trav run with him now. In Hell, just for more impressive numbers. ^.^;

*brb*

I saw a pile that reached 94k. I walked out with 686448 total.

Oh, let me add to my advice about this build idea, you want to use find item on all the corpses, one more chance at gold from everything you kill. Don't forget to use find item! :)

Halaberd's Reign is actually a better helm for a GF barb if you're going for GF itself. You get CBF 100% GF + 2 sockets so lemlem = 200% GF and some nice strength. :O You may lose out on LL, but if you kit your merc out to help out a bit too, your killing speed shouldn't change and your survivability should be similar. :D
