Basically, the less skills it takes to kill the monster, the better. Looking at that factor alone, we can conclude that you should move to some lower-level monsters.

That being said, lower level monsters will drop items that are worth less, and also less gold per kill.

Grinding at mobs 6 levels above you seems to be too much for whatever build you have. Try going to mobs 3/4 levels above you instead.

That being said, your question can't really be answered that simple. I mean, it also depends on your playing style. I have never, with any build, not had enough gold, so you're clearly doing something wrong (not meant as an offense).

Do you remember to pick up everything and sell it all?
Also, what is your build?

Really, AoW? The same folks that played on EcSRO back in the days? The Fembria days? Are you TzunZu from there? (got a feeling that isn't spelled correctly).

Anyway, I'm sorry, but I don't know what might be your problem. But as I said, I would suggest killing mobs that you can one-hit with one nuke :) That should do it.

If you're a str char and are really desperate for gold go on mobs you can easily kill without imbue, that should save quite some mp. Seeing how you're full sun you should still deal some nice dmg. Otherwise use a lower imbue/get garm for less mp use.

I would grind on the first mob that is green to you, they are easy to kill and drop quite a lot usually. Seeing how you're lvl 74 I'd say snipers are the best option or maybe black eagles. Both have low hp so they die fast. I think black eagle has better spawn though.

sniper has less hp. black eagles have hp almost= sniper but at lv 72.
you are right about spawn though
