How to make money in Wildstar!

I have to admit I wasn’t aware at how easily I could get money to buy C.R.E.D.D with almost no work from myself. No, this isn’t a pitch to buy something or a get rich scheme, its pretty simple, honestly and ill explain below.

The first thing you need is at least a level 40 character in order to get relic/mineral/thicket tier 4, secondly you need the mod willyoubemyneighbor. The mod sets up an easy way for you to create and visit neighbor plots to harvest wood/minerals/relics. There is a catch though, only players who have this mod can be added to your list. However at least on the Widow (pvp) server this isn’t an issue as I have dozens of players in my neighborhood. The mod itself allows you to auto accept or decline invites based on your preferences. So you can accept people have have a max of 50% to owner, and who have a tier 4 plot. This means there is little work for you to do, you can add players and players will add you as long as you are both online. You can also easily cycle through them with the green arrow, or choose which neighbor to visit next with the red arrow.



Now onto the money stuff, I haven’t had much experience with the mineral/relic use, but due to the high value of wood I use the thicket tier 4 settings and have a survivalist. In my case I am able to generate about 40+ mails a day from players harvesting my goods and me getting 50% of the resource. This turns out to be at least 50G worth of material, when sold to a vendor, and with CREDD at 5plat it takes about 10 days to get enough plat to sub my account. Now you’ll notice that I said players harvesting my plot and not myself, if I spend the time running around harvesting other players plots I generate anywhere from 60g-1plat an hour.

Now this is all conditional because I have another character where I attempted the same thing and I generate the same per hour if I harvest, but if you don’t have a neighborhood with a bunch of harvesters (players with this mod) you won’t make passive money. The mod actually tells you the amount that you and others have harvested and many neighbors will remove players who don’t harvest anything because it doesn’t benefit them to have freeloaders. That is why I recommend that you do harvest occasionally for your other neighbors, not only do you make decent money per hour but you also get the benefit of getting money when you are offline. Make sure to log in and maintain your plot otherwise you’ll get removed from neighbor lists because they want the most profit for themselves.

Word of warning some players try to set a reasonable rate such as 50% and then change it after they have neighbors, you can see in the image provided that it tells you their CURRENT % taken, so if its ever above your requirements just drop the player from your list and move on.

    Superb blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely
    confused .. Any recommendations? Thanks a lot!
