    Only thing I know is to make

    https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Fulgurite

    Then make either Jeweled Damask Patch or Jeweled Damask Patch.
    Unsure how profitable it is now tho

    Edit
    You will need a buttload of it for Crystalline Ingot if your going for any of the raid legendary armors or first 5 gen 2 weapons aswell.

    Mixing up the stuff well aurilium you buy keys to open exalted chests and leyline crystals you buy acid to open tangle depht chests or use all 3 to buy machetes for dragon stand chests.

    Basically, buy keys to open the chests (there is also some achievement that rewards you with a daily chest in your home instance, and 1 item in your inventory that let you buy random stuff every day).
    Aurillium: apart from the Viper recipes (that are also sold with other currencies), just buy the keys to open the chests after the meta in Auric Basin.
    Airship parts: you may want to complete the Blade set (pieces can drop also in open world, after the meta in Verdant Brink or from the story, but if you need some pieces, you can buy them from the vendors). If you don't care about the skins/AP, you can use them to buy obsidian shards with the Ley-Energy Matter Converter).
    Ley-Line crystals: if you want to complete the collection, for AP, you could buy the Chak weapons. When done/if you don't care, buy the Vial of Chak Acid to open the chests in Tangled Depths.

    Definitely get the Ley Energy Matter converter https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Ley-Energy_Matter_Converter and unlock all of the tabs. Then you can spend 25 of each currency each day on a rotating stock of items. Good/useful stuff too - obsidian, t6 materials, WvW supplies (i.e. free WvW rank points).

    Can also use to unlock exalted and Chak weapon skins, and bladed armor for stat-choosable exotic gear for alts if you need.

    Man, i really need that item. Thanks for letting me know cheers.

    If you craft Ascended gear you might want to pick up the Vipers exotic recipes.

  • Also grab the cassava flour recipe. There are some foods that require it that you may want at some point, and you should be harvesting all the jungle plants you run across.

    Or do what I do, and hoard them to make Gen 2 legendary weapons.

    Aside from the keys, I use the spare currency to buy obsidian shards. It's really good for crafting fulgurite, and also for making legendary weapons.

    You need those to buy the keys for loot containers on the respective maps or for Machetes on Dragon's Stand (required for achievements and collections), and many other things you will want to get before wasting the currencies on the Ley Line Converter:

    Verdant Brink vendor
    Auric Basin vendor
    Tangled Depths vendor
    Zinn's Print-o-Matic
    Dragon's Stand vendor

    buy map keys, buy as much of keys as possible, you will find yourself burning through them really quickly opening ever map chests you run across

    especially the DS's machetes, unless you are multi-laning, the map meta does not reward you enough machetes to open all the pods; and you want to open all the pods to get the crystalline ores, which is a mandatory mat to craft gen2 legendary weapons

    Just interjecting that your HOT currencies and Karma shouldn't be spent on Obsidian Shards, since both Volatile and Unstable Magic are far easier to farm for Obbys.

    You don't go to Hot to farm Obbys. But, if you have the spare currency and you've already bought everything you want, Obbys make for a good dump commodity.
