It gets alot better at 60, and then much better at 68 -> 70.
I think on my first character that I actually kept aka duoxie, I had bad gears for a long time.
However, you get a good amount of high value items 60+ onwards, such as Explosion variants from the first main dungeon quests (SMF+) and ofcourse money from ACV and PT.
I sell ACV for 25g/run and typically do 5 runs per day. That means you can get 250g from sitting around in ACV for an hour and 1/2. Just keep saving up and you can get to great places.
EVENTUALLY, you'll be able to sell good value dungeons like ACV and PT also and then the money you can make will really skyrocket. If I want I can make 1.9k gold daily from buying PT and selling ACV.
