I am new to this game, just played for 5 days, but i wasted some real money to buy gold and upgraded my island to lv 6 hoping this could give me allot silver i future.
The thing is i learn cooking right now, i just bee able to cook goose pie.
I look on market to buy all items for 1 single cooking, and that would cost me 7500 Albion Online Silver. I guess i get 10 pies and that would mean the cost to make them is 750 each.
When i look on market the cheapest costs 650 :D.
That means i could not sell it and earn anything.
If i was able to grow gooses, goats and so on it would offcourse be cheaper, but….if i the sell the ingredients instead of cooking them i make higher profit.
Is there trouble in the games ecconomy? or have i totaly missed something?
Ingredients are often more expensive than the finished product because the process of converting ingredients into products rewards you with fame. If you could just buy ingredients off the market, craft them, and sell them for a profit, then everyone would be leveling their crafting skills for free.
First check the market. Do the math and see if a profit can be made. Then put the work in.
You get 15% returned resources when crafting in a city, which means 15% cheaper materials. Soon they will add the option of using crafting focus for foods/pots to give a 45% return. I generally try and break even on buying/selling and let the 15% be my profit.
I know all of that but any how the ingredients should give a little less profit then the ready cooked meal i think. In moast other mmo i played i could buy ingredients and cook and still make a little profit, ofc not much Cheap Albion Online Silver, or else you make more money selling the ingredients instead of making a product of it.
Its possible to level cooking with buying ingredients allready, ofc you lose some money, but moast of it you get back when selling the finished product.
Lets say i can farm goats, goose and grow cabbage. If i sell the raw ingredients i get more money then if i cook the goose pie, and if i just want money i would go that way instead of learning cooking.
