    I think your best bet until ~75ish skill are Wolf Winglets, craftable in the PvP section. They seem to use the cheapest materials to me. Remember you can purchase Aldgoat Horns from the Kobold Vendor for 238 gil each. These can also get you Battlecraft Demimateria IIs, which are useful.

    Militia Sledgehammer is just as cheap, I think, and gets you Fieldcraft IIs if you're looking for those. Since I have plenty of them and want more Battlecraft IIs, I'm planning to focus on the Wolf Winglets.

    After those two stop being good for you, you might want to get into PvP. You can get i70 Warwolf Blades for 965 Wolf Marks, which isn't too bad if you enjoy Frontlines. You can also spam Ifrit as a PLD, WAR, MNK, or DRG hoping for the weapons for those classes. There seem to be zero good crafted options for BSM at the i70 level, sadly. Your only crafted options are the i70 weapon parts, which can yield Fieldcraft Demimateria IIIs, but require 9x Coke each.

    OP updated with ALC, BSM, and LTW and with updates to GSM and CUL. I'll get the last three at some point.

    Just a fishing tip I wanted to add: If you use a controller you can also tell if you landed a rare fish by the controller vibration. It goes nuts for the rare fish like Silver Sovereigns. For me at least, the controller also vibrates when I'm in another window too.

    Thanks for the reply. Had a feeling it would be either expensive or time consuming :/ guess I will do ARM too in the mean time.

    One of my issues with going with the PvP gear is I am saving up my marks. of which I currently have just over 14k. Guess I can spend them as I earn them because I want to hit the 20k cap.

    I caved and leveled what is possibly the most worthless desynth (CRP). I was originally going to use my last spec on GSM for easy field/mastercrafts like everyone else but I got tired of seeing Mogbows dropping all the time (and now the bow will never drop ever again now that I have CRP leveled).

    55-70: Militia Grinding or Spinning Wheel, whichever is easier for you to get the mats for.
    70-85: Sarnga Limb (9 hardened sap) or Straight Stepping Stumps (2 petrified logs, 500 myth each), whichever is easier for you to get the mats for. I personally went with the stumps because I don't know what to do with all this myth.
    85+: One of the carbuncle furnitures, haven't looked through the list to see which requires the fewest mats yet.

    For Battlecraft 1 I've been getting good results out of Tortoiseshell Armillae - it only takes 12 shards since you don't have to syth the mats and Adamantoise Shell is cheap.

    Hrm, 12 shards is a lot of shards (that's like, 1,200 gil alone on my server), but you're right that the other mats are trivial. I'll add it to the above.

    Someone (meaning, probably me unless there are other crazy obsessive people out there) should desynth ~100 items each of different ilvls and see if the ilvl affects the chance to get Demimateria or not. I'd have done it by now, but I'm too busy fishing and hoping that some tradable Big Fish yields Waterproof Cotton so I don't have to drop a desynth class for CUL.

    OP updated with an ARM guide and a CRP guide (thanks to Lyrinn for the CRP advice!)

    To the OP, thank you so much for posting this! I've had a very hard time figuring this process out on my own. You rock!
