I need to make about Gil soon to get me a brown belt. I was thinking maybe i should try out mining or something. Ive never really tried it and wondering if anyone can help me get started or can tell me how long it would take to make 200-400k gil. It'd also be helpul if anyone could tell me good farming spots or something. Thanks for the help.

well bud, in my opinion i found beehive chips to be nice quick sale for 3k or so, but i think ud be good at something like tree cutting or heck maybe lizard skins. skins go for like 8k a stack, and as 50 mnk u can kill alot of lizards quick, dunes has those 'aint nobody touching these so might as well farm them' lizards up near gustav tunnel beach.

Mining it'd be best to have sneak, but then again ur 50, im not. Gusgen is nice once u figure out the points, and palboraugh is good too. Yughott's tunnel has some good ore also. But, to have better chance you'd need to field tunic and gear. Seriously i think you'd do well farming sand bats in dunes for fangs while killing those lizards, or messing up every crawler in odin for silk and such. But thats just me, my highest is 33 so..

Personally, I give up on mining just because of the lack of desire to run around in full field gear and smoking 3 pickaxes in the first 3 tries in Yug. After that, I rarely got anything of notable value. Since I see you have your Kote and just about everything else you need, perhaps your farming/fishing/crafting is good enough to get your Brown Belt? I know how boring those can be (save for crafting, I am too poor to effectively start it), but maybe switching across those should help to make that Gil for you.

Oh ya, forgot something. Maybe Tigers in Sauromongue/Battalia? The latter seems to have the least people farming them at any time I am on. Yes, I am sure it is a very slow process but it is one that I am aware of that will give you fame and Gil for you.

Yes, don't go mining, its a terrible habbit >_>
There's nothing worse than a mine packed full of miners and countless hours running around only to find no mining points.

And, as my galka friend also found out... the best way to make money is to simply KILL STUFF! :)

on the other hand, I made 200k in one day mining. However, if you're not up to the challenge of mining Ifrit's Couldron then farming is the best bet. Find something you can kill quickly with the highest value drops. Crawlers or Tigers have semi-valuable drops, and bees you can kill with a single ranged attack (sometimes).
