I would never farm nor will I endure any sort of grind. When a game becomes work instead of fun thats the end for me. I'm guessing the price of black dye has dropped off considerably since the early days when everyone needed it for new characters. It was /extremely/ expensive back then. It was even worse in the beta with the regular pwipes keeping the price higher. So much so it was far easier to give $5 to some chinese gold farmer who would deliver you 100k gold or whatever the exchange was back then.

As for the elite armor ...Unless they introduced new necro sets since I quit they were all ugly compared to the last set at droknars - the one on the games box art with the female necro. Not worth the gold other than for epeen wagging if you care about that sort of thing in my opinion. The only /maybe/ better set was on the NPC necromancer in pre-searing and (iirc) the sanitarium afterwards which was sadly unobtainable.

(dont need black dye to farm :p)
Any character I look at needs black dye. Number one rule of RPGs: Find sexy gear, ignore stats because the good stuff is always ugly.

depends HOW you farm, now what you farm. Some builds are pretty fun + allow you to farm, for example there is a W/Rt build that uses Hundred Blades + Whirling Axe, which in turn strikes EVERY foe around you then deals ALL the Hundred blades attacks, meaning one attack and they pretty much insta-kill, 20 enemies down in a second....BOOM!.

And as for necro armor: http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Necromancer_armor

Personally, one of my necros has Elite Necrotic and the other has Elite Profane (used to be called Tormentor's before they added Insignias into the game)

Black Dye is around 8-9k right now, but that isnt too bad. And just by going through hard mode areas, missions, and vanquishing you can make EASY money. (Eye of the North is by far the easiest place to get gold now)

EDIT: I forgot to mention that the pre-searing armor has been obtainable for a little while now: normal - http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Necromancer_Ascalon_armor, Collector - http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Necromancer_Krytan_armor

The only character i have dyed black is my Assassin ;)

Eye of the North is also one of the most beautiful places in Tyria.
They really force the last ounce of l33t out of that crappy old gfx engine. =)

I need to farm shitloads of respect so that I get a set of l33t armor before GW2.

Chrono, are you grandmaster cartographer yet?

none of my titles required farming :P Cartographer is just exploring, skill hunter you can do while exploring, EotN rep can be done in dungeons and by doing mission books. they aren't hard :P

the farming titles I do not have though. like Treasure Hunter and Wisdom titles.

Yeah, the EotN rep is quite fun too if you don't just go around killing mobs in one place.
I just don't really have the time to play that much.
I play Valkyria Chronicles atm.

Yeah that black dye is a lot cheaper than it used to be. Meh @ most the armors they added since I last played. Elite Profane is ok but the regular one still looks best to me. I do like that livia brotherhood armor at the bottom though.

Ah memories i had all elite armors for every class, hope I get a nice bonus in GW2. I´ve never managed to become "God Walking Among Mere Mortals" (don´t know if I remember the title right), although all my friends have at least one... Hope the bonus will be not so imba in GW2.

And I hope that GW2 will have Paragons, it was my main-char. Paras are imba you can vanquish any region on hard mode without subway or battle drugs (coin sets or what they are called).
And believe me paragons heal much better than a monk can do (warning you need skill). (I played monk for about 2 years as main-char, before switching to para).

The funny thing is I´m not looking forward to this game. Yes, I will try it but my GW time is over, I´ve enough of this game...
