man, making gil in this game is freaking hard, trying to figure out how to make gil in blacksmithing, but no matter what i try and figure out, i will only make about 5k(after expenses mayble) on a stack of iron ingots. sure if i do this for a long amount of time it will make alot of gil, but not really all tha much

from what i hear, item farming and fishing are the easiest ways to make money...

personally i'm going for cooking, i did it in RL as a job for a while (i know that has no meaning in game!!) but being galka having stacks of raw meat about can also be helpful ;)

Anyone who buys gil will not only hurt themselves but everyone else on the surver as it promotes people who are paid in RL to get gil to get more of it, by any means. Even if that means cutting prices of everything in sight so they can get the gil quickly.

Farming is good. And so is fishing but I haven't figured it out yet.

Keep crafting though and eventually you'll be able to make higher priced items.

At level 40 the best way to make gil is to do BCNM. Find a group that you can easily win with and keep doing it. Spend you farming time using low level jobs to get beastman seals easier and you can farm crystals and items at the same time. I prefer to level my lower jobs in windy so I can farm silk threads, yag necklaces and cornettes.

These are a few ways I have found making gil easily and without the headache of hours and hours of farming!

1) Goobues drop moss which can be sold in stacks at the AH for between 7-8 a stack last checked.

2) Farming Lizards in Valkurm Dunes is not a bad idea either, there are so many that its not hard to find your next kill.

3) Sheep teeth sell well in the AH in a stack as well. (cant remember price!)

4) Some locations that get under control by your nation will result in an NPC having ceretain items for sale in your home town. If a new region is under control by your country go check out the merchants and see what kind of wares they have for sale and sometimes you can buy tons from them and re-sell them on the AH at far better prices.

5) Once you have enough fame, the Teleport Scroll quests will generate a lot of gil for you as well.

6) BCNM fights are a great way for making gil especially BCNM30 and 40. BCNM 30 drop can include the Mercenary Earring which currently sells on Alexander for roughly 150k.

7) If you are high enough level farm Goblin Leechers. They drop some low end spells but when you geta few of them sell them in your hometown AH and you'll make a bit of extra gil here as well.

8) NM hunting..(I cant stand this lol!) will make you a lot of gil if you have patience. Check the Alla NM post (I think it is somewhere on the left side menu screen) You may find hunting the Nm's in Palborough mines early on for a Braveheart greatsword to be allright, or later on you can go after lesser knows NM's. Check the list theres tons of them.

Feel free to add any suggestions anyone! I currently farm raptor and skins from Sauro...among other things but whenever I need armor a weapon, food or whatever I ususally find it easy enough if you have the patience to just set your mind to farm for a few hours..! Good luck!

At times it may seem hard, but sooner or later you will make money. You picked a craft that takes some money to actually level up in. If you need money, farm for your ingredients, take up mining/chopping/fishing for your money. It may take time, but you will make your money. Farm crawlers for silk if you have to. There is lots of ways to make money.
