Zhaisehn keys are rewarded by trading Balthazar faction, which is earned from PvP, traded for gold Zaishen coins, and dropped for winning Hall of Heroes.

If you got to The Great Temple Of Balthazar and speak to Tolkano and register your account then speak to High Priest Zhang. High Priest Zhang will give you 50 tournament points. Then go back to Tolkano and trade those for 10 zkeys and sell them.

That should be enough to get you started.

BTW everything you want to know, you can learn here:

50k and 400 hides is easy enough to get without having anything to do with z-keys (and to be honest, if you can't get those without involving z-keys you need to go back and spend a little more time learning to play). If you play the game normally, going through one campaign or another, amassing 50k should be no problem. Since it's norn Armor, you'll also need to attain a certain norn rank, which means playing through some Eye of the North Content. For the hides, its probably faster to just buy them from the material trader rather than trying to salvage/farm that many.

I think the OP got the message. no need to rub it in any further.

@Bluee the guru is a community driven website. We are very helpfull but most of us don't like to reanswer the same question over and over. So the request is to use the search-button on this forum as well as using the official or the unofficial wiki's and last of all good old google to find your answer before posting. For you this is new, but most of us have explained it in detail many many times. This is a subject asked alot the last few weeks due to new and returning players who want to play the original game before gw2 and you found yourself at the wrong end of the question

Don't be discouraged to ask again in the future, though take your time to use the search function, wiki and google and things will be allright.

Nah. Just play through the game. Tanned Hide is extremely common, so with salvaging you'll get them while earning that 50k anyway.
If you wanted to farm them though, you can easily get 400 within like 30minutes by farming the Wardens in Arborstone, if you've got the right kind a build. If he's struggling to earn money I'd think it'd beat blowing several platinum at the trader buying them.

If you're trying to get HoM points, which is why you're looking at 10k armor, you probably also want weapons. If you're going to farm your own destroyer weapon, you might as well run all the dungeons to get the gems. In doing so, you'll earn a lot more than 50k.

This last saturday I ran on Normal and HM, Darkrime Delves, Ooze Pit, and Frostmaw's Burrows. I had no previous experience in those places, and was just using myself and heroes. It wasn't that bad. Using Light of Deldrimor on the hidden chests, and just turning in the quests and vendoring all the items I got, I probably made at least 50-60k. I also got a bunch of diamonds and onyx gems. I even got a sapphire and a ruby from the hidden chests.

Just doing the things you'd do to get your HoM points will earn you a lot of what you need to buy the elite armors.

Just play the game and you'll have it in no time. Don't worry about armor, you'll have it soon, as long as you play the game. Just go finish all campaigns or something and by the time you're done you'll have more than enough gold to buy that armor.
