Archeage: Farming Gilda Stars
What are Gilda Stars?
In Archeage, Gilda star is a currency that is used to purchase special goods. To spend their hard earned Gilda Stars players need to make their way to Mirage Isle. There players can purchase boat designs, glider designs, farmers carts, fancy house designs, cool cars, superior horses and other stuff with their gilda stars. While some of these items are cosmetic, others give the owner a certain edge over players that go without. The prices of these items range from a few gilda stars up to thousands for the most expensive stuff.
Archeage offers several ways to farm gilda stars, such as daily quests and intercontinental trade runs. There are several types of daily quests which become available at different levels. Farming Gilda Stars either by trade runs or daily quest farming is a major part of the game.
Here is a list of activities which will earn you Gilda Stars in Archeage.
The Storyline Quest and Achievements
The storyline quest in Archeage offers a certain amount of Gilda Stars. While not a huge amount it is still well worth it as the storyline quest itself is somewhat interesting. If your sole purpose is to farm Gilda stars, the storyline quest is far from being the best way.
Earning Gilda Stars by Completing Achievements
Another way to earn Gilda stars at the beginning of the game is to complete achievements. There are 1751 achievements to choose from ranging from the really simple to extremely hard.
If you open up your achievement window by pressing the fourth button at the bottom right side of the screen you can see what achievements you have completed and which are unfinished.
There are several different daily quests available which reward Gilda stars, the ones I know of are:
- Daily Contracts
- Priestess of Nui quests
- Blue Salt Brotherhood quests
- Dungeoun quests
- Naval quests
- Farmer station quests
Each of these quests reward gilda stars at completion.
Did you Know That ...
- Daily quests are reset at 20:00 EST time.
- You can run daily quests on all your characters.
- Daily quests usually reward you with a single Gilda Star
Gilda Stars From Daily Contracts
By completing daily contracts you are also able to gain a few daily Gilda stars. To access the daily contracts you just need to press the button on the bottom right with the number in it, and then select the daily contracts tab.
As you level up you will be able to access more daily contracts than before. At level 1 you can access a single contract, but at level 55 you can access 55.
You still need to unlock the contracts, buy that is a one time cost for a daily chance of getting a Gilda star.
The actual quests are varied from killing monsters, crafting or completing dungeons.
Daily Quests: Priestess of Nui
At level 10, the Priestesses of Nui start to offer daily quests. You can locate them on your map at the respawn points. The daily quests change every five levels and stop at level 30.
These quests are usually easy to complete and each completed daily quest gives one Gilda Star.

Daily Quests: The Blue Salt Brotherhood
When you reach level 31 you lose your access to the Priestess of Nui daily quests. But do not despair, the Blue Salt Brotherhood will start to offer you daily quests at that level which reward you with both a nice bit of silver and Gilda stars. The first mission becomes available at level 31, two more at level 40 and another two at level 50 for a total of five missions, making them even better to farm as you get to do five quests each day. They do require some traveling to complete, which is easy if you have a decent amount of Hereafter stones available to you as they reduce the travel time to nearly zero.
The Blue Salt Brotherhood NPC's can be found in most major cities on both continents. Each daily quest completed rewards you with a single gilda star.

These quests are hard and best done in a group at high levels.
Daily Quests : Farmer's Workstation
If you own a house of any size you can construct a Farmer's Workstation. The workstation gives you access to daily quests in the form of quest items you need to produce to complete the quests. To receive the Gilda Stars you need to produce a Hearty meal, a Premium Hearty Meal or a Rare Hearty meal. Each giving a single Gilda Star when completed.
To craft the Farmer's Workstation you need a Small Scarecrow Design, 30 Lumber, and Viscous Glossy Oil.
Trade Runs no Longer Give Gilda Stars
It worth to mention that, unfortunately, trade runs no longer give Gilda stars. This change was made at some point and is mostly considered negative by the player base.
Questions & Answers
Why can I not get Gilda Stars from trade runs anymore? Does the game suck now?
Unfortunately, trade runs no longer give Gilda Stars. I guess it was considered unfair that people that could spam trade runs to get so many Gilda stars.
The old ways of getting Gilda stars are still in the game, though.
I would not say this ruins the game; it only makes it slightly harder to amass Gilda stars.Helpful 3
