No Rest for the Wicked: How to Make Money Fast

If you’re running out of money in No Rest for the Wicked, don’t fret! We go over the best ways you can make money quickly that will see you swimming in Silver in no time at all.

Money can be a little hard to come by in No Rest for the Wicked. As you continue playing and upgrading Sacrament’s various vendors, you’ll want to purchase some of the rare resources, weapons, and equipment they have on offer. You’ll also want to earn money to buy your first house. However, all of this costs a pretty penny. Thankfully, there are a few ways you can make money pretty quickly in No Rest for the Wicked. We go through it all below.

Best Way to Make Money in No Rest for Wicked

The best way to make money in No Rest for the Wicked is to sell off any unwanted weapons and armor you’ve accumulated while attempting runs in the Cerim Crucible roguelike dungeon. This is because you will frequently find high-level gear drops there. You will find gear from defeating enemies and opening chests. All items will drop at the (current) max gear level of 21. Depending on their rarity, many of these items can sell for multiple Silver. Running through the Crucible will ensure you stumble across an extremely high frequency of gear drops, as most enemies will drop weapons and armor of some kind.

Follow these steps to make money fast in No Rest for the Wicked:

  • Activate a Cerim Crucible run and enter the dungeon
    • The entrance is located in the basement of the Stone Mason’s shop in Sacrament
  • Pick up loot by defeating enemies and opening chests
  • Check your inventory and discard lower-value items
  • Sell off unwanted gear back in Sacrament for a tidy profit!

As all loot in No Rest for the Wicked is based on RNG, you’ll need to open your inventory frequently to check the quality of the gear you pick up. Your gear inventory will fill up extremely quickly on a given Crucible run. We recommend discarding any item of a value less than 80 Bronze. This way, you’ll rack up a decent amount of coin when you sell all your unwanted gear back in Sacrament.

You can only access the Cerim Crucible once you have completed the main story in Early Access. You will need one Fallen Ember per run, and it will take roughly 15-20 hours to reach in your first playthrough. Though this may sound disappointing to those wanting to earn money earlier in the game, this shouldn’t be too much of a problem. While leveling up and playing through the story, the gear you naturally find and play around with should be enough to see you power through all early game content. It’s only later, when min-maxing your gear that having an abundance of coins will serve you. This is because you’ll need lots of Silver to purchase rare resources to upgrade your gear.

No Rest for the Wicked: How to Make Money With Bounties & Challenges

You can also earn a nice sum of Silver and Bronze by completing Daily and Weekly Challenges and Bounties in No Rest for the Wicked. When you turn them in, these passive challenges and quests will give you a decent chunk of change. It’s a great way of earning income early, but it can be a slow process. We recommend activating as many challenges and bounties as possible. That way, you can complete them as you play the game naturally. If you’re looking to get a lot of money quickly, selling gear picked up from the Cerim Crucible is definitely the way to go.
