In many games, if you find something especially rare, chances are that this can be sold for money. This goes mainly for multiplayer and MMORPGs, but sometimes people are willing to buy accounts to single-player games as well. The amount of money that an item or in-game artifact can be sold for, varies greatly depending on how rare it is and how popular the game is at the moment. Diablo 3 actually had this as a built in function initially, but it was removed after some time. However, it is not only items that can be sold and bought, but also other things like game-currency or help leveling up a character. Again, this mostly applies to MMORPGs, like World of Warcraft for example.
What is required?
In many cases, these items can only be found after a lot of time has been invested in the game. By this I mean that greater items might only be found in game zones accessible only to high level characters. Because the chances of finding these items are relatively small for the most part, one might require patience to grind and go through the same areas over and over until it’s found. All in all, this process goes a lot smoother if you actually enjoy the game you’re playing. Lastly, you’ll need someone who wants to buy the items and artifacts that you’ve found. If you have a high level character, one option might be to offer “power-leveling”, where you provide the service of helping someone else with less experience leveling up their character.
Where to find a buyer?
There are several sites online, where you can find potential buyers, or put the item up for auction. One of them is http://www.playerauctions.com/. If you’re having a hard time deciding which game to play, this can also be a great site for gauging the popularity of the trading for a certain game. The list of games available is constantly expanding, and whether you play World of Warcraft, Path of Exile, Diablo 3, Hearthstone, or some completely different game, chances are that some content can be traded. If this is something that interests you, I suggest checking out Player Auctions to see if they have your game listed.
