Anyhow, back to the point (yes I have a point, for a change). If you're looking to make money quickly, just fight. Fight, fight, fight! Go nuts with it. Just keep fighting. It's been proven numerous times recently by CB's math nutters that forging will not gain you much more money than fighting.
The only time I'd recomend forging is if you're running a tank character (or anything NW dependent) and have significantly less NW than those at your PR. If this is the case, then you'll want to stop and forge. Otherwise your time is best spent fighting.
