Get to know FFXIV Gil Farming

Final Fantasy XIV Gil, also refer as gold, is the standard currency in the game. You can make FFXIV Gil by killing monsters, doing missions, completing quests, dungeons, as well as selling your items. Your total Gils are showed on the currency panel. Meanwhile, Gil can be traded with other FFXIV players via mail, Market board, or FC chest. Final Fantasy XIV is one of the best MMORPGs on the market, but getting a hold of its gil economy can be a challenge. So how do I get FFXIV Gil?

Dungeons Roulette

Doing leveling roulettes will reward you a lot of Gil, as well as level your account. Run daily roulettes, get a cracked cluster, get and sell red grade VI material. Especially as a PLD, WAR, or DRK.

The Duty Roulette offers a daily reward that gives the players a combination of experience, Grand Company Seals, Cracked Clusters, Machi Matter, and Gil, depending on the type of duty, your job depending on what is currently needed, and the level of the job when entering the queue. The type and number of Tomestones available for each roulette often change with new patch content.

Just like every grind-based method, this takes time. However, it will make you a lot of Gil with tiny effort. In Roulettes, you will slay monsters and bosses that will give you decent loot. You just have to click the roulette option in Duty Finder to join raid group. You will be matched with a party to complete dungeons. One raid a day is not much, but it will make profit. For example, Ampador Keep is a good source of Tomes of Philosophy that you can exchange for more expensive items (i. e. Materia). Selling items is always a way of obtaining Gil.

Do not sell finished goods

Unless you are an experienced crafter, armed with knowledge, willingness, and heavily-overmelded gear, I think it is best to avoid selling finished goods for profit, and instead sell intermediate crafting materials. These are crafted items whose main use is as ingredients in other crafts, such as lumber, nuggets/ingots, circles of leather, cut jewels, etc. Of course, if you do want to craft finished goods, one thing you can do is to craft collectibles and exchange them for white scrips, then buy white scrip items to sell (Sublime Solution sells well as it is used in a ton of crafts, though there may be heavy competition on price).

In order to maximize profit margin, ideally you will also have leveled gatherers to gather the items you need - MIN for BSM, ARM and GSM, and BTN for CRP and CUL. ALC is weird, and their alkahests, glues and solutions can require both miner and botanist items, as well as monster items. If you are LTW, make sure to have lots of combat retainers and ventures to supply yourself, because going out and actually killing monsters for skins is not efficient. It's best not to rely on the market board for supply of raw materials. However, it's worth checking it from time, since occasionally people dump huge amounts of items they don't want anymore at a low price.
