The hardest part about getting the armor was getting the amber. For the materials, I just salvaged everything that turned into dust or plant fibers (I crafted the ink vials), and tanned hide. If you play though Nightfall, and open all the chests, you can esily get about 30-40k gold, if you don't spend any. I just played my Rit, Paragon, and Ele. I got enough to get my Elementalist some 15k ( I figured I owed my oldest character some spiffy threads), and then I just went to the merchant and sold alot of the worthless junk that I horde eventhough I know I'm never going to use it.
Although now I have to get enough for some black dye...bah....
We could have "The Official Boston Guild OMGINEEDMORAMBERZ Alliance Battle Team"
