FFXI Gil Farming Guide

Shirley Huang October 25th, 2019 Final Fantasy XI    FFXI Gil    FFXI Gil Help   

As you know, faming FFXI Gil can be extremely hard. Some gamers have much time, and they would like to farm ffxi gil by themselves, but some gamers have no time or energy, they would like to buy FFXI Gil, which is a convenient way to obtain final fantasy xi gil easily.

This is a real player cloudchief arcade’s video. It goes over some best ways that you can make ffxi gil quickly. Today mmogah would like to share the tips with you, and all the content of this article is quoted from this video.


I want to go over some different ways that are pretty good for obtaining FFXI Gil.

Go ahead and make some FF11 Gil first.



You should do Ambuscade if at all possible, because there are so many different rewards from it. While you can actually make decent money from Ambuscade, you can also get other things: armor drops, weapons and other different things. When you are first progressing or for the first month, I recommend you more focus on getting stuff to benefit.

That way will help me to complete all races once I’ve gotten all those rewards for the first month, I will start collecting alexandrite being the first thing, and turn around and sell money, you can get close to at least one Azura 10 mil for all the Alex, you can get out of Hallmark’s, on what the prices are for items on your server, you can get a decent amount of ultimate weapon materials that are required to make ultimate weapons, it is a decent way to get ffxi gil and I highly recommend that everyone be doing it, but make sure you are focusing on the stuff that’s going to upgrade and progress yourself before you are starting to worry about and use it to make money.


Sparks of Eminence

They are earned by completing objectives in Records of Eminence. 

We should all be aware of this, but for anyone who is not aware, you can turn around and buy items from sparks, and then NPC One for a decent amount of Gil if you actually go down the list to equipment level 71 to 98, it should be the Acheron shield, I’ve done NPCs for the most amount of money for the least amount of sparks if you do not have max fame. There is a chance that might be slightly less than 10 to 1 ratio for Gil whereas if you have max Fame, it is actually more than a tendon ratio, so if you are max sparks and you turn around, and buy all the shields & NPC, then this is over 1 million Gil as long as you are max Fame, so you definitely want to be making sure you are turning in your excess sparks for shield to turn around and sell for Gil the best thing. It is instantaneous money and you don’t have to wait for anything to sell on the auction house or bazaar, you instantly have this Gil as soon as you turn around and sell the shield, so you should always be utilizing this whenever you have extra sparks, because it’s easy to get money.


Unity Accolades

They can be earned by completing Unity-based Records of Eminence objectives. You can use this way to make gil if you are a new and returning player or you are not very well geared, you can go and fight the level 75 unity NMS, and they would be an utter pushover as long as you and level 99 for any unity in them that you were popping and using up unity accolades, however you can get sparks and the other interesting thing: the most unity accolades to sparks conversion from the level 75. This way gives a lot of different options for making gil, but you should definitely be utilizing at least one of those ways, so that way you are making additional gil.



You can make money just farming up the currency on the server. This is might not be the best way as prices have dropped, it would still be consistent money for your time putting. I definitely would probably recommend doing some other things.

You know farming up something that is pretty easy to farm, and you can get a lot of that is in demand races, which are always going to be making relics, so that’s always going to be a way to make money.  However it’s not going to be as easy guaranteed that you are getting drops, because you are going to have it as a group, but you can actually make a decent amount of money farming the new type of Dynamis that’s kind of a whole different matter altogether or you can sell the metals, the tags and any armor piece, you end up get to sell phone on the auction house.


Farming Alexandrite

Doing some tear to salvage is a decent way to make. Some Alexandrite and Android are always in demand, you can actually make a decent amount of money for a very little time investment. Going and doing salvage, I was actually doing this for a while when I want to make some money. I’ve stopped doing but it might be something ramp up and start doing again, you can clear a salvage in 15-20 minutes if you know experienced and geared character, it wouldn’t be too hard to go through, and you always have a chance of 1-2 pouches plus you can get, and you know anywhere from 20 to 40 that comes out to about a stack, so for about 20 minutes of your time at least on my server, you are going to be getting somewhere between 600 to a million guild per run in 20 minutes worth of your time that is definitely well worth it. In my opinion, you should definitely be farming Alex if you want a good way for making money.


Unity Campaign

Another great way to get gil is to pay attention to what campaign events are going on the campaigns that offer a lot of good ways to make gil, such as voidwatch is a great way to make gil, it’s pretty easy to get heave metal plates and rifts in RIF dross from spamming out voidwatch and when the events going, you have cap lights, you are getting the maximum chance of drops from the campaign.

You are getting double accolades, which can end up being decent money if you use it correctly. If you do unit NMS, you are getting two coffers per run, that’s just doubling all your drops, so you know campaigns are a great way to make money, so you should be a lookout on when they are going and figure out which one’s going to be best, since they are constantly changing, but definitely be on the lookout and use a vent to make gil.


Augmented items

Augmented items for a rising Jima armor, this stuff drops off ascendant mobs, it’s pretty easy to farm. Once you have them, you can typically just go to Nord come up in your bazaar and you can make a decent amount of money on Azura.


There is so many coming in since it is the most dense server, the price on these aren’t really worth. However this was a main source of guilt for me when I was still on Vala 4 which was more of a dead server, so you need to check the prices. Farming these augmented items, it’s pretty easy to do, you are going to get decent CP while you are doing it, so you can basically be getting CP for a job while you know making sure that you are getting ascendant mobs, so you can turn around and use yourself or sell for a decent amount of kill.


This is a pretty decent way since they actually give you weekly records of eminence. You getting the drops from the MM if you happen to get them a lot of these things sell for a couple of hundred K gil each, so it’s definitely a good way to go with a large group of 18 people and you don’t want any drop just getting your personal drops.

From records of eminence, it can be a decent way to make money, so Vagary should definitely be on the list and you should be trying to get in there, every week if at all possible to make some extra dough.



The bosses have items that are used for all kinds of different, they are used in crafting and used to pop certain NMS and make the Ergun weapons, but delve clearing Dell from the bosses can actually give you a decent amount of crafting items, you can turn around sell for a decent amount of gil plus if you are spamming out Dell for money. You are going to be getting plasm which you can turn around and just buy the items directly and sell & make more money,


Farming Crystals and Vendor Clusters

If you are a new player, you can farm Crystals and Vendor Clusters.

You can literally convert your crystals into clusters, and then selling stacks of clusters as a decent amount of money, you can obviously go kill elements that will drop clusters directly, turn around and sell them, so it’s a very easy way to make gil.
