When I first started FFXIV I was dirt poor and I couldn't afford anything. And then my cousin told me about crafting and gathering. And I started off gathering and worked my way through Botany and Mining and Fishing. AftherI leveled them to 60 I started leveling my crafting and once they were all level 60 the money came rolling in. During my peak, I was stelling a stack hardsilver ingots for 1m per stack. So my advice is start gathering and then start crafting if you're struggling with having enough money in FFXIV.

P.S. The reason why I say level gathering first is because you're going to need gathering for your crafting or you're going to be spending a ton of money on materials.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Soulwatcher, it really is inspiring me to get up and gather my art and start using it, I really know what it feels like passing through that broke stage with no one lend as much hands that you need.

Thanks once again, all you taught me in this is to never give up no matter what, I will keep striving and developing my art.

This somewhat reminds me of a time when I played Skyrim. I remember spending a lot of time gathering iron ore and then smelting it into ingots, crafting hundreds of iron daggers and then enchanting them, to both level up my smithing skill and get a lot of money. It was a real grind and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
Anyway, I guess that's useful advice for anyone playing this game but it sounds like the same kind of grinding I mentioned above and I sure wouldn't waste my time with that anymore.

I agree with you mate, though I think for a usual Final Fantasy game fan, grinding and leveling are pretty normal. Who doesn't want to have tons of money and high level anyway?

Honestly, you can play the game without ever having to make money because you get armor all along the way. But if you're going to want anything like a house then you're going to have to make money to buy the house. I had over 28m in my house and that was when 28m was a lot of money. Heck these days 28m is still a lot of money!

That is the truth any Final Fantasy game has a grind and FFXIV is a little different the most FF games. Because there is a little grind until you hit level 70 and that's when the real grind begins. It's going to take you an insane amount of hours to get end game gear weapons.

And just when you get everything that you want a new set comes out. So basically the game keeps you into a constant grind for end game gear.

It's true that grinding is normal in FF but not to this extent. You get burnt-out eventually with too much grinding.

Honestly, you can play the game without ever having to make money because you get armor all along the way. But if you're going to want anything like a house then you're going to have to make money to buy the house. I had over 28m in my house and that was when 28m was a lot of money. Heck these days 28m is still a lot of money!
Does it ( the house ) actually cost anywhere near that amount of money ?
Because if it does that's a bit ridiculous. I don't know what I expected from an MMORPG though.

That's a very interesting story, it's a great motivation for anyone looking to attain such heights where gaming is involved. Thanks so much for sharing such a wonderful experience, it's going to be useful to most people here.

Yes, it costs 4m for a basic small house and 20m for a medium house and 50m for a large house. And if you know what your doing, making money is very easy. And if you don't know what you're doing your never going to have more than a few million tops.

Seems like a good strategy to follow, and you surely cannot say I was really this wise in my plans but it is never too late to improve.

At first I thought you made real money out of final fantasy. HAHA. But still this is a good trick in earning in final fantasy. This trick can help those final fantasy players who are wanting too earn on final fantasy easily.

This is some pretty solid advice. I have never thought you could make a fortune just crafting and gathering. I have actually been struggling to accumulate a cash load and I had climaxed at a million tops. Maybe I will take up crafting and see how it goes.

If you get into crafting and gathering you will have an endless supply of money. At one point I was up to 32 million gil and then I bought my medium house and furnished it. I also gave my friend over 10 million to buy a house and not to mention I spent over 50 million in appearance gear and the list goes on.

I'm curious. How does the....housing system function in FFXIV ?
Do the players compete for a finite number of houses ( I guess that wouldn't make much sense, since eventually there would be no available houses which would suck, but I'm not sure what does ) ?

That has really shed light to most of us who are admiring to become rich but we don't know where to begin. Glad you have shared your sentiments here.

I have ever gotten to an endless supply but it certainly helps. Maybe that just means I should devote some more time there or maybe I am just missing something.
