I've been clearing maps and getting a lot of drops, some equipment stronger than the one I already have, thus switching my equipment to get better. Sometimes, I get drops which I can 'sell as junk' at the merchant or put in my Bank as materials.

There are some items left. I always sell them at the merchant, but sometimes I wonder which items would make more profit in the Black Lion Trading Company. Which items should I sell there? For example wands, do they have certain attributes which are worth money? What should I look for?

  • Bags, Bags, Bags. In every MMO, you sell Bags the most. Obviously not the low tier ones.

    @Alex You never know.. The one moment you are peacefully playing GW2 in your room, the next moment Charr invade your hometown and destroy everything you have. You can be glad you stored 3 flowers and a sandwich.

    I'm still suspicious. I once deposited 4 perfectly good vegetables in my fridge and when I tried to withdraw them 3 months later someone had snuck in and replaced them with rotten versions! Probably a Thief.

    Only sell items on the trading post where (projected profit) - (listing fee) > (merchant value)

The way that I sell extra items on the market is that I look at the items value on the tooltip. Then I right-click > sell on market, and if I can make more than that including the listing fee then I stick it on the market.

I tend to only bother listing green or better items, all other stuff I just sell to merchant.

As for things to look out for, the pricier items will have,
+Power +Precision +Crit ~ Berserker,
also look out for,
+Precision +Power +Toughness ~ Knight
+Power +Toughness + Vitality ~ Soldier
