    The best ingame way to hoard gold? To become a "TP (= Trading Post) wizard" - something like to become a "stock-broker" - by the principle buy when price is low, sell when price is high.. It is certainly the best way to hoard literally thousands of gold, as I heard from some of those, but also with the highest risk of losing everything. Be aware that this is also the hardest way. If you are not absolutely 100% sure about everything you are doing in this method, stay away from it, because there is also a very high chance that you can lost all your investment and find yourself totally "bankrupt" . Especially when new game content is added (for example new map in Living World episode is released), material prices can change drastically.

    Best method where is no chance to lose anything? Not 100% sure, but I think SW RiBA + chests is still considered as the fastest gold farming spot.

    Cellofrag has some useful videos about gold farming. He also has regular legendary weapon giveaway contests that you can enter by commenting on discord and his social media accounts.

    Log in every day, do all the ecto crafting, do dailies and pact supply network agents. Do Big Spender daily whenever it comes up. Always pick Legendary mats in Loyalty Chest. Do 100% map exploration every other year. You can make a legendary once a year with minimal stress.

    Most people want to farm now and get it done as soon as possible. However the best way to get to legendary is to build up your own easy resources over the course of a year. Also it helps to have multiple accounts for mystic coins and clovers to make gen 1s.
