I am a proud member of the Immortal Flames, and in order to be able to show my devotion I need to bribe them with vast amount of seals. Also I want to buy lots of pretty things from their shops.
I am trying to earn the seals, but have not found any method that really suits me (personally) that I can be comfortable doing over and over, whilst seeing a significant gain. So I decided to compile a list of ways to get seals, and see if I missed anything.
-- Toto-Rak --
One can earn seals by running around here like crazy. I think you could probably do 3 runs an hour and earn up to 1000 seals each time. Giving you 3000 seals/hour.
However, I get lost all the time, annoyed, frustrated, and just idle at the entrance and allow someone else to get seals while I chat with friends ^.^;. This nets me a very few seals / day ^.^;;
Pros: Only two people needed to go in, and relatively easy fights.
Cons: If you get lost easily this is not for you.
-- Dzemael Darkhold --
A group of hardy adventurers can go in, clear up a bunch of chests, beat up an ogre and batty, and get some more chests. If done well, can be done 2x per hour. If lucky, everyone will get on average one drop. So approximately 2000 seals/hour.
Pros: Can be done with 4-8 people, but of course harder with 4 and easier with 8.
Cons: If unlucky you could spend a couple hours here and only get 1500 seals.
-- Chocobo Caravan --
You can get together with some friends and escort those cute chocobos to their destination. I think one run every 30 minutes, giving you about 500 seals per hour.
Pros: Easy to do, simple, not terribly boring the frist 10 times.
Cons: Usually need 6-8 people, and still only 500 seals/hour
-- Grand Company Leves --
Find one of those nodes where a Grand Company man is idling and handing out levequests. If you are lucky you will get one that can be done in 15 minutes. On average, you could do up to 4 per hour, netting you about 250 seals/hour.
Pros: Easy to do. Completley solo. Don't even need to be awake.
Cons: After the 5th straight hour you will sacrifice yourself to a level 99 mob in Mor Dhona just to relieve the boredom.
-- NM Hunting --
You can get up to 250 seals for turning in a drop from an NM. The NMs pop with high frequency so should in theory be able to get one every hour. Therefore, about 250 seals/hour.
Pros: Easy to do solo, can do it while idlish.
Cons: After each drop have to go to a different NM or turn it in and return. Does not make going for more than one at time easy.
-- Provision/Supply --
You can turn in items to the provision offficer in exchange for seals. Some items give 3 seals, others give up to 80? or so. However, the cost of items on the wards often increase in comparrision to the seals you would get. An analysis of gil/seal for the present and next week show an average of 700 gil/seal. 1 Million Gil will get you about 1500 seals.
Pros: Super easy to do, don't even have to leave the Grand Company Halls.
Cons: Very expensive. Even if you gather/make the items yourself, the 'loss' from not selling it on the wards versus handing it in needs to be accounted for.
-- Quests --
Not including quests, as they are one time-only (unless someone knows a repeatable quest).
