Workers can gain you a really nice amount of money and are usually essential if you want to train life skills such as cooking, processing, or alchemy. The best thing about workers is that out of all the money making methods in the game, this one requires the least amount of effort once you set it up.
All you need to do is invest in a couple of nodes, get some workers and watch them do all the hard work for you. if you don’t know how to set up nodes, here is a handy guide on how to do just that.
Investing in these nodes will give you useful materials.
For workers, just press the “NPC” button next to your mini-map and press the button “worker.” This will set a waypoint to the nearest work supervisor where you can hire your workers. Viewing a worker costs 5 energy, and hiring it costs around 10,000 silver. If you’re just starting your work empire, I would highly suggest only hiring workers from the skilled tier or higher, as they give you a significant amount of extra profit, while only requiring a bit more energy to obtain.
After that, select one of the nodes you invested in, select a worker, then press “start work,” and you’re good to go. Whenever you are online in the game the worker will gather resources for you. Every now and then check on your worker and give him some beer and he’ll be good to go for quite some time.
