Getting a hold of its Gil economy can be challenging in Final Fantasy XIV. At times it can seem like you barely have enough to teleport. So how should you earn Gil? Below are some best ways you can farm Final Fantasy 14 Gil.
The Main Story Quest
The easiest way to get that gold stack up is completing the story. The Main Story Quests give thousands of Gil permission. And if you pick up a few side quests, they give Gil as well.
Weeklies & Dailies
Final Fantasy 14 offers various tasks and challenges that reset daily or weekly, and both can be a great way of earning some extra Gil.
Dailies include roulettes and beastmen quests, both of which can earn Gil as rewards or material.
Additionally, a weekly challenge log can earn players some easy Gil just by ticking off various tasks.
Expending Guildleve allowance is the most accessible means of making Gil. One of the most lucrative leves is Salt of the North found in Endwalker's Old Sharlayan for level 80 Culinarians. This pays out 2,450 Gil. What can result is earning up to 245,000 Gil by just completing said level multiple times.
Doman Enclave Restoration
One of the hidden ways to make money in the game is the Doman Enclave Restoration. Once unlocked by following a quest chain in Mor Dhona, the Doman Enclave allows you to trade any junk items for sweet, sweet Gil.
One of the best ways to make a decent chunk of Gil rather quickly is via Expert Deliveries. Once Expert Deliveries become available to you, you will then be able to turn in Aetherial, Unique, and Artifact equipment for Grand Company Seals, which you can then exchange for items that are sellable on the Market Board.
Doing Retainer Ventures is a passive and easy way to score lots of Gil. You can send your Retainers out on Explorations that will be 18 hours ( or 1 hour, depending on which Venture you choose). Completing Retainer Ventures will grant you experience and, more importantly, Gil.
There are currently two Deep Dungeons in Final Fantasy 14, Palace of the Dead and Heaven-on-High. Both dungeons have the chance to reward you with rare items that can sell for a small fortune on the Market Board, with Mounts being the most popular. Additionally, you can obtain Glamour items from Deep Dungeons that can fetch you a decent amount of Gil on the Market Board.
Spending Your Poetics
You can turn your "useless" Poetics in for quick Gil. You can be taking Allagan Tomestone of Poetics to Hismena in Idyllshire (5.8, 5.4) and trading them in for Unidentifiable items such as Ore and Shell. You can head to Bertana, located next to Hismena (5.9, 5.2), and trade Unidentifiable Ore for Grade 3 Soil (Thanalan Topsoil), which you can then sell on the Market Board for a pretty reasonable price.
One of Gil's best tried and true methods of raking is to farm Bozjan Clusters in the Bozjan Southern Front and Zadnor. Once you have enough Bozjan Clusters, you can purchase items from the Resistance Quartermaster in Camp Vrdelnis (34.7, 35.2) and flip them on the Market Board for tons of Gil.
Treasure Maps are an excellent way to earn Gil and lots of them. If you have a Free Company that you get along with, you can ask them to do treasure maps with you which will give rare items that get a high selling price on the Market Board since these items are usually used to create glamour items.
The top way to make Gil in FFXIV is through Disciples of the Hand and Disciples of the Land. Blacksmith, Goldsmith, Alchemist, and Culinarian are the most profitable crafting classes. The advantage each of these classes offers is that you can provide highly sought-after gear, furniture, consumables, and other materials for sale. If you need some Gil fast, this can be easy to make a profit.
For every crafter in FFXIV, there is also a gatherer. To that end, there can be quite a bit of money if you are willing to gather materials to sell to avid crafters. The Disciples of the Land classes Botany, Fishing, and Mining, can all be utilized for profit.
The more you desynthesis, the greater your skill improves, and eventually, you get rarer items that you can sell or use to craft for yourself.
Levequests are usually used to level up your characters, but in Crystarium, they give a large amount of Gil per levequest you accomplish (while your rewards are still doubled when you submit HQ items).
Eureka is an incredibly lucrative instance in which dozens upon dozens of FFXIV players are constantly taking advantage of. The objective here is to acquire Anemos lockboxes and Cracked Clusters. These lockboxes will contain enormously profitable items you can sell on the market.
