Making gold by selling unidentified dyes have been one of my first post and is still important if you are low level, but what if you are level 80 and already with a lot of gold? Maybe it’s time to push it to the next level!
Rare black dyes sell for more than 3 gold pieces on the trading post!
You’ll need to be a master cook 400/400 to try this, but almost all of the early lv80 used cooking to push the last levels and already are, and if you’re not, maybe it’s time to have some fun cooking some nice food, remember the magic find buff some food gave you is really important in farming.
So what you want is to craft unidentified gray dye (rare), for this you’ll need:
- 25 Walnuts (you can find them almost everywhere and cost nothing on the trading post.
- 100 Black beans (you can buy them in bulk from the karma vendor Field Medic Leius west of Nebo Terrace in Gendarran Fields, for 37 Karma)
- 25 Coriander Seed (The real problem)
- Orrian Truffle (found everywhere in Orr, cost nothing in the TP)
Let’s talk about the Coriander Seed, you can either buy them on the trading post (for a lot of silver) or farm it. You’ll find Coriander Seed by harvesting Mature Herbs in Blazeridge Steppes, Bloodtide Coast or Iron Marches. The only little problem is you can find 8 different ingredients in mature herbs, so it’s a matter of luck.
So let’s say you have all the needed ingredients, and you craft your rare unidentified gray dye, now is the time to take the most important decision. Sell it like this for more than 1 gold, or try your luck and open it. You can also get blue or green level with this one. If you are here for sure gold, just sell it unopened, if you’re a gambler well have fun and maybe you’ll get a rare black dye like the Abyss dye or Midnight Ice dye, and sell it for more than 4 gold pieces!
