  1. this is somewhat a glitch, but it was found if you spend 65,536 renown or more at 1 time, the renown cost is rolled back to 0, so buying 94 silver Gauntlet+ only cost about 246 renown, which you can then sell, to easily make money and then sell

    • with the articles seed farming tip, you can get 4,500 renown every 55,000 gold.
      To reach the renown to start the exploit,(65,536) without dlc, and new game gifts, you’d need about 800,000 gold. this is a lot, if your playing on normal mode you can do this over an hour/2 of grinding. But once you do get that threshold, you can be buying 94 silver gauntlets+ for 240 renown, and selling them for 60,000 gold each stack, then buying seeds for 55,000 getting 4,500 more renown, and begin the cycle
