Tips and tricks from readers

Here are some tips and tricks shared by readers on dulfy.net that you may find interesting. Feel free to add : )!

  • Rare/exotic armor is generally less expensive on the TP than weaps, so it might be a good way to pick up some extra commendations. Level 70-75 exotics are generally less expensive than 80′s, and give almost as much back in commendations.. Nutshell is that, if you’re going to spend the coin to get commendations through donating, consider buying cheap lvl 70 exotics to donate in order to get a greater return. (grape_crush)
  • You can also buy armor/weapons (but let’s use armor, it’s cheaper) from dungeon token vendors and use them to make commendations.Tip: If vendor offers rare level 80 armor, then you get 1.1 commendation for each token spent if it’s exotic armor, and 1.5 per token spent if it’s rare armor (Jaggens)
  • If you are a Level 400 Jeweler or know someone who is you can create Candy Corn Orichalcum Amulets which only require 3 Exquisite Opal Jewels instead of 5 (instead it uses +150 Candy Corn). It’s the cheapest Level 80 exotic trinket.(Gahro on reddit)
