Guild Wars 2 – Do your Ascalonian Catacombs paths daily

When were talking about gold and how to make some Ascalonian Catacombs is a great place to start.

Doing dungeons is a great way to make some extra gold and AC is a great example. Since there are 3 paths in the dungeon and each path rewards you with a bonus for doing it daily you can earn a total of Gold coin4 and Silver coin50. Also with all the chests you get from the dungeon you can earn anywhere from 2-3 gold. Sometimes you can get lucky and a exotic item can drop which can sell for a few gold. Along with the bonuses you also get 3 champion bags per path which gives you fine, masterwork and exotic items. Within the champion bags you also get  a few silver which normally ranges from 3-7 silver.

Now that we’ve settled the gold part lets find out how to join a “speed run”. First off what is a Swiftness.png speed run? A speed run is another way of saying “i want to get this dungeon finished, fast…”. So basically the people advertising speed runs want to get the dungeon done fast without wipes and with people who know how to run the dungeon. It’s okay if you don’t know every stacking position in AC or things like that because there is a first time for everything. Join one of these groups and tag along with the players.

Most people already know that AC is a good place to earn some daily gold. But this can serve to you as a reminder. Do your AC’s daily and every week you will have Gold coin31 and Silver coin50. Doing all 3 paths with a speed run group in AC can take about one hour. Sometimes wipes can extend this to about an hour and 20 minutes. But overtime you will learn AC and going through the dungeon will be like a walk in the park.
