Easier gold for wood
Ok, this tip takes some time but is unlimited. Merchants have a certain amount of money they can carry, limiting you from selling everything at once for gold.
Having to wait or speed up time isnt too bad I guess, but this way you dont have to worry about it unless you want to sell and its night, in which you will have to speed to morning.
So to the point. Get to "Agnas Mill." Its just west of "Windhelm"
There talk to "Aeri" She will offer to pay you for chopping wood. Unlike merchants with the limited money, she has no limit, nor does it show her money. Your basically working for her. So use the chopping block right next the logging area. There also is a barrel for quick storage. I had my weight 2000/400, but you dont need to run to her to get your money.
About an hours worth of cutting and you should have enough wood for atleast 2000 gold. Also you will notice that you will cut 3 times without having to select cut again. Its a little trick I found. On the end of the 3rd cut just tap your left joystick, your character should move slightly and begin cutting again. It only saves seconds but it adds up at the end and it keeps your other hand free to play on your ipad while you cut with your other.
I did this tip to gain my first house.
Also, this is important. A dragon killed everyone in the village which included Aeri and once there dead there dead. No more easier gold. I had to restart multiple times, I could never get to the dragon before he blazed the town, eventually it wasnt there when I restarted.
