is this what it feels like to hit lotto?

How To Make Gil  Fast

After extensive research alongside some trial and error, I sorted through the best and worst ways to farm for Gil to make myself a rich man with dreams of one day owning a large beachfront property in Limsa so I won’t be a broke and homeless warrior of light anymore.

Saving the world is cool and everything, but it doesn’t pay the bills. To avoid the most time-consuming methods, you will want to get creative.

This list is the top 5 best and easiest ways to farm for Gil to make you rich. It’s time to make some money!

1) Dungeon Roulettes

Grand adventures await you as you raid through Dungeons!

This specific method is easy, albeit time-consuming as most things can be in FFXIV. However, running through dungeons rewards you a pretty decent amount of Gil among other items and exp. It isn't the most effective but is a valid option for those wishing to be more adventurous in their quest for money.

How it works:

  • In Roulettes fighting monsters, bosses, alongside completing the dungeons will net you a lot of Gil as an award.
  • You have to click on the roulette option in the duty finder.
  • Even after you match with a party, you have to play through the dungeon to completion, making it a tad time-consuming.
  • If you do this a couple of times through the week, it will reward you with tons of Gil!

2) The Market board

Hit the Market while it's hot!

Craft and sell equipment on the player market so players can pay you for your wares. Or dump all the unnecessary items you are hoarding onto the market to make a quick buck.

How it works:

  • Craft high-quality gear than go to the market and sell it on the market.
  • Undercut your competition by making your prices better. And more reasonable.
  • If you have a high-level crafting class, this is probably going to be the fastest and easiest way to make you filthy rich within a week.
  • Market crafting materials on the board slightly higher than shop price players will more than likely buy what you have to offer because they don’t want to go out of there way to purchase it.

3) Use your retainer while taking advantage of the market

Ask for a little help from your trusty sidekick!

It takes about five to ten minutes of effort to pull this off. All you need to do is unlock your two retainers and send them out on ventures. While undertaking a few different gathering quests, post your materials on the market, and sit back and relax.

How it works:

  • First, send out your retainers on ventures to gather money than utilize grand company gathering quests to gather materials
  • After you do both these things head to the market or your house if you have one.
  • By the end of the week, you can take home close to if not more than 100,000 Gil.
  • It's fast, and it’s easy. This is the easiest method out there because of its low effort and simple cheesing of game mechanics.

4) Be a Hunter and Gatherer

Hoard and gather!

If you have a gatherer class on the character you are playing this method is probably the best and most efficient for you. You hunt down and gather high-quality materials and ingredients to sell to the highest bidder. If you haven’t guessed it, yet this is also an excellent way to exploit the market.

How it works:

  • People are lazy, use this one factor to take advantage of the market by selling materials needed by players that don’t want to be bothered to get it themselves.
  • Utilize grand company quests and leves to gather high-quality materials.
  • If you sink in the time than you reap the rewards.
  • Aim for high quality. High-quality items are worth more money than lower quality ones, and people are willing to spend more Gil on high-quality materials.

5) Miners are worth a lot of money

Bash some rocks I guess.

This method is a little more specific than the others on this list however, if you have leveled up the miner class. This method should take you only about an hour, making it a fast and efficient method for getting rich quick. The guide may be a tad dated, but the core concepts and execution are still applicable in the current version of the game.

How it works:

  • Identify the need for specific items on the market and how you should price them.
  • Just spend an hour a day farming with your miner in some regions of the world for sought after materials and items on the market.
  • Once you have pounded your miners' rod enough times to collect precious minerals it's time to sell them on the market.

Nice guide, i think you should edit or add some information about buying the gil. I know is not game approval, but i think is an information we all want to know. If you have any information in this regard, it would be great to hear about it.
