This might not be a new method, but it seems to be a quite efficient one in terms of time.  Karma is also cheap for those of us who spend a lot of time in wvw.

First, we must look at this chart someone put together with the wiki and the API:

https://wiki.guildwa...s_reward/profit

The maximum number as of writing is 30.66 gold in week 2 for frostgorge sound, though this will likely float around and who knows what materials PoF will drop and what new things will end up eating materials.  This is the number for 40 rewards, though it can be divided by 2 for 20 rewards for reasons below.

The next thing we need to do is stock up on Pact Scout's Mapping Materials by using the daily pact supply network agents, located at:

https://wiki.guildwa...y_Network_Agent

Each of these buys 1 reward and the map rewards repeat every 20 rewards, not every 40 rewards like the chart calculates.

Mapping materials are only useful when used in batches of 20.

Mapping materials cost 5250 karma each, so a batch of 20 costs 105000 karma.  The profit per 1000 karma in this example then becomes 14.6 silver.

If we then look at:

https://gw2efficienc...urrencies/karma

We see this is a very effective method.  But even more so because it takes 5 minutes per day, vs. hours of clicking and mystic forging using other methods.

At 5 minutes per day, and since it takes 3 1/3 days to get the 20 mapping materials...  that works out to be 55 gold per hour, ignoring how you got the karma.

No mystic forge, but super timegated and requires waiting 2 months between unloading for optimum results.
