Gold is an important currency in Elder Scrolls Online. Players will need gold for new gear and other items off vendors such as food/potions as well as for additional bank access, mounts and attribute/skill resets. Trade with other players, of course, will also require eso gold. Gold may seem difficult to come by, but in reality, it’s not that hard to naturally farm and earn all the gold you need.
1. Complete all the quests you can while leveling.
Quests are a huge source of gold that only increases as you gain levels. Keep current with your story quests and do all the quests in an area before moving on to the next. As a bonus, you’ll also gain experience and new gear from quest rewards.
2. Don’t forget about side quests.
As noted above, the gold obtained from quest completion is quite significant. There are a great deal of side quests in ESO that are not immediately apparent unless you take a bit of time and explore the surrounding areas. Explore Tamriel while sticking to the roads and popular landmarks and you should run into plenty of side quests.
3. Trade what you don’t need instead of vendoring items.
Unwanted bind-on-equip gear and crafting materials are great items to sell to other players for gold. There will be no auction house in ESO, but you can join trading guilds that specialize in trading, selling and buying unwanted goods. Alternatively, you can try and sell goods in the chat channels. You may not want that blue staff, but someone out there just might! Crafting materials should also sell well, especially in bulk.
4. Save gold when you can.
In order to have gold later for the things you need the most such as new mounts, you may want to save what gold you can while leveling. Buying nice equipment from other players or from vendors is often tempting, but since gear comes naturally as quest rewards, it may not be necessary to spend a great deal of gold on new gear.
5. Always have extra inventory space.
Inventory space is important to any gold-farming mission. Make sure to head to a town early on and spend some gold on obtaining extra bank space. Bank space will always come in handy, and since banks are account-wide the extra space will be useful for characters you level later on. Loot whatever you can and reap the rewards.
