In Final Fantasy 14, most items are trade-able amongst players on the free market. As a result, if you want to have the best gear, you will need a lot of gil.Luckly ,there are many great tips on how to farm ffxiv gil, as well as some of the best farm spots in the game,which offer us an easy way to enjoy us in ffxiv world.
Right now, while it may seem a bit strange, the easiest thing to farm in-game for steady profits is shards. Shards are worth so much gil just because you need so many of them to craft.Higher level crafts can use up 20+ shards per synth, and many crafts require 100s of successful synths just to level up! As a result, crafters often need to go through 1,000s of shards per level. Crafters will burn through over 100,000 shards just to hit 50, and that is with just 1 of the many possible crafts in-game.
The easiest way to farm shards is to just grind “easy” monsters while leveling up. Shoot for monsters that only pay out 40-80 skill points each.From levels 25 to 50, you can grind Puks all the way to the top, and earn literally millions of gil in the process. Sea Puks in Cassiopeia Hollow and around Cedarwood work well, and when you hit about level 30-35, you can move over to Nanawa Mines to farm Puks. You can then push from 40-50 off of the Puks in Tam Tara Deepcroft.
Honestly, you will not likely find anything better than shards, simply because they are so valuable and the demand is limitless. Other good items to farm include Sheepskin and other skins, as well as various ingredients for crafting.However, the market for these literally ranges every day, so you have to check your individual server. For example, if three high-level players all of a sudden decide they are going to level up Leatherworking, prices for Sheepskin, Dodo Skin, and other skin-types will dramatically increase. These may not be profitable around the clock, so you have to keep an eye on crafting materials and when a few run out, you can farm them and sell for a premium.
To repeat, while it may seem like there is some secret to farming gil, right now you can easily make an unlimited amount of gil just by farming shards.Just enough your game!
