    How much gil do you have?

    I've heard a lot of complaints from people who can't afford to teleport places, yet I also know of many instances of people being gil capped, at least on their person, even if not across all of their retainers. The wealth distribution in this game seems a bit more extreme than I'm used to in other games, with many people much poorer than I'm used to, and I'm just trying to get a feel for it.

    Just like real life!

    Someone should start up a social program to make sure people have teleportation gil.

    Unfortunately, I spent my last 2 gil writing this post

    just sell the materia you get from msq, more than enough for questing costs

    The one I hired to write the post overcharged, apparently.

    Fortunately, I found him, oppressed him a bit, and made him write this one instead of giving me the gil back.

    That way we all win!

    Lol, no gil for teleport? That happens to me when I place all my gil save for a few thousand on my retainers.

    I will not say how much, but enough to be comfortable -thought I would no complain to have more -. But I'm far from the cap.

    There were legacy who already were capped at the 2.0 launch.

    Is it difficult to make gils? Yes and no. No because there are many ways, yes, because you need to spend pretty much time in the game and to be lucky with RNG. All random rare HL saleable items are interesting : minions, items for crafts, materia, gathering. FC can earn nice amount with the right items from expeditions... Extrems, Raids, Diadem or PoD highest levels can provide interesting things.

    But it is a lot of grinding and farm. You do can earn 1M a day (a few succeed to do more).

    I'm sitting relatively low myself, though I try to not spend too much gil if I can help it. I think part of the disparity in this game is that battle classes have limited options to retake gil from crafters/gatherers. Within days of SB launching, all the monster drop ingredients are already selling for single or double digit gil on the market board. In a lot of cases I even see people selling them for less than they would to an NPC! Even the rare ingredients from high-level duties go down to super lower prices after a short time.

    I dunno how anyone can be so broke to not afford a teleport. The game throws money at you. Even if you teleport like crazy through the mss instead of running you still come out in profit. 400 til in teleport quests gives you a thousand. Kaching.

    There's literally nothing to spend money on except glamour.

    My money goes up and up without any real effort carry 10 million on my characternrest is stashed on retainers. And just blasting through the mss I noticed my character now has 12 million. And I've done nothing to actively make that 2 million its just accumulated through basic play

    I make my money solely from desynthing items I get from dungeons and selling whatever items I get from killing stuff. I make a pretty penny from selling battle/field demi materia.
