Easy money

After capturing Luoyang in Chapter 2, the merchant with the fishing quest will give you four ultimate baits. Instead of using them in the guided fishing spot, use them in the moat immediately outside Luoyang moat. You have a chance to get beautiful saddles that sell for 7,500 gold each, strange artifacts that sell for 2,000 gold each, and other moderate sale items. Around Chapter 3 you can purchase ultimate baits and repeat this process as many times as desired. You can get approximately 250,000 gold per 10 ultimate baits.

Search for bandits, especially bandit chiefs and leaders (worth more). Kill bandits to get XP and items. Gather their items and sell them to vendors to get approximately 6,000 gold for each group of defeated bandits.

Easy bonding

Acquire two hideaways. Then, send a letter to an officer from one hideaway, and travel to the second hideaway. Once you open the door to the hideaway, the officer will spawn next to the building outside. Simply talk with the officer to raise their bond level. Next, send a letter to an officer from the second hideaway, and return to the first hideaway. Repeat this process as many times as desired.

Travel to major cities after each chapter so you avoid missing opportunities to speak with certain officers whom may be killed later in the game. This also helps with getting "The Ties That Bind Us" achievement.
