You can get gold in many ways which can be broken down in 3 categories:
- Completing adventures: you find gold by opening treasure chests, killing monsters and breaking barrels/vases/statues (or any breakable object). The gold you get from monsters and breakables is tiny compared to the gold from chests.
- Trading at Royal Emporium: this is the gold marketplace (press M or TAB to see it on map) where you can sell your loot for gold. You can also be a reseller, flipping items for a profit.
- Buying power pendants (membership) from the website with real money and selling them in-game for gold (at Royal Emporium). This is a quick way to get gold when you really need it.
