Did you follow our Veg investment tip?


Approximately one week ago I posted an article entitled “The Fruit and Veg Investment“. If you haven’t had a chance to read it, the post simply speculated on the recent price changes occurring within the Ingredients market, including some investment suggestions for anyone interested in trying the markets out. After the recent update to Guild Wars 2, all of these items (and some related markets) have began to rise as a fresh wave of players rejoin the game to play the new content and unique storyline.

However, the question is, did you invest? If not, then why?

Just check out my Transaction Log below (a brilliant new feature on gw2tp.net!) and just have a nice long look at that profit! If your’e interested in finding more tips like this (aside from my blog of course) you should definitely check out the thriving forum over at TP Extractor and if you haven’t already done so, follow the frequent tips posted over at guildwars2tradingpost.com as well!


Obviously the quantity I have purchased these ingredients in is probably out of reach for a lot of people reading the blacklionsprofit blog (or too crazy an investment) and I know i’ll probably get undercut a lot before selling even half of this but hey.. 213 gold profit for doing nothing for a week? yes please.


  1. Lol, that’s some crazy investment. But then money makes money ;)!

  2. Blackberry sell for 78, if you list at 97 it could be a long wait. Or an eternal wait

    • Blackberries are a relatively volatile item which are constantly changing price on a weekly basis, whilst 97 copper each is on the higher side of the scale, the price spikes do hit it regularly.

  4. Thanks for the tip, I was only able to get 12k garlic before my bags were full, but still made 22c profit per garlic after fees :)

  5. Lol, that’s some crazy investment. But then money makes money ;) !

  6. Can’t I just give you my gold, you make profit and keep 50%? I somehow seem to be too stupid to do it right. I buy low, I sell high, and I still don’t make a plus. o_O

    • I would suggest using a tool such as gw2tp, goldwars 2 or gw2profit to find items that are currently profitable then take a note of what items were successful and what were not.

      Then continuously invest in those items to draw a steady daily/weekly profit which can then be used to invest and research other profitable items and markets.

      Chef Ingredients aren’t really great for daily flipping at the moment, but if you buy when they are cheap and hold until the price rises there can be some great profit in it.
