-Making Money, The n00b's Guide: This tip requires only three things. Some luck, a mule(or a real character, it's whatever you want.) who can craft accessories, and patience. Anyone who's been playing past level 30 probably already knows where I'm going with this. But for those of you who don't, this is what you need to do...
You DO know that accessory crafting was nerfed? You need 3 different ores for stuff now, and multiples of each, instead of just 3 of the same ore.
Around level 60 or so soloing Invoke should be possible. Since bosses drop multiple bags now the ely from NPCing stuff adds up fast. Well, that's also the level where farming Mine Bats for peridots and other ores becomes both easy and profitable exp and ely-wise, so it's your choice.
Best way to get funded though? Join a guild, ask for help.
