Does anyone have any tips yet on how to actually make a living (money) using Armorer and how they do it? What items do you synth and sell at the market place that actually bring in a profit? I love the craft and picked it because my main is Marauder, so I enjoy it as well, but just wondering who was making money and how. Thanks to anyone who spends the time responding.

Right now on most servers the markets are swamped with low level stuff so prices are driven way down.

I'm a Weaver not a Armorer but what I do is check the market first to see what is already over stocked (don't make those). It is usually the stuff with easy recipes only taking mats from that class. Find some recipes that need more exotic mats and you will find that the gear is less stocked on the Market. Make a few of these and undercut the prices on the market.

For ease lately I've just been making items in the 15-25 range and blindly putting them up for 300 gil (pretty cheap if you ask me). Any that don't sell in a day I price reduce. For the most part I've been able to make a little coin off this.

Good luck!

It depends on your level but (and this will probably kill the market) you might just buy 2 stacks of iron ore from the vendor. Quick synth it into Iron ingots and list them in small stacks of 3-10 at the market price. A lot of people just throw on 99s and if you look at the history you'll find that they don't sell. Aim at around stack sizes that are under 2.5k if you can in general. I wanted one rose gold nugget (2k) and the smallest stack on offer was 20. Fortunately I had the cash but I'm gonna relist those as singles and I will get 2.5k each I'm sure

Im not too current on the different markets, but i feel making stacks of lvl 15-25 mats that you can as other classes would be a great way to make money, yeah your'e selling it at less than shop price, but thats the beauty of economy you will sell more than shops, gear is exactly what Algorithm0r stated, you only see low lvl gear in markets, i would wait on making a living off of it until you're making HQ verions to sell which i hardly see atleast in my server of Lamia, but good luck to you sir!
