    Farming Predicament.

    I'm a 39 MNK. I don't have time to level another job. I have War, PLD, and THF at 15-20ish. Fishing is okay money, but I want more. I've heard of people making well over a million a week simply by farming. Since I have to get Sniper's, that well over a million a week sounds awful good.

    Where, what, and how do I farm? Do I need to sub-thf to be efficient? Is it possible, when I don't have any magic at all?

    Any input is appreciated; farming is still an enigma to me.

    Could do the mule Norg fame then to get the ninjutsu scrolls and make 1m a day that way if you have a lot of patience and a friend to get keys.

    As a bard before level 40 (go go 123 BC40 wins) I farmed beastmen in Yughott Grotto for gil, and bats for bat wings (was a lot of gil when I was newb) as well as the NM there with the priest's robe.

    Though mining can be good money as well if it's all you do. I know a guy who was level 30 and bought an Astral Earring and 2 Astrals cause he mined like all the time.

    I've never even been to Norg. That's how inexperienced I am. mining, er, I tried that, seemed way too tedious for the output.

    North Gustaberg mountain is a good place to farm bees. Really though, I used to mine at Ifrit's Cauldron to get the gil for my sniper rings(Only have one ring now though, since Rajas ring will never leave my finger).

    What's the, say, gil/hour ratio on mining ifrit's cauldron?

    I maybe incorrect, but as lvl 39 (you) I don't think it would work. I've been told lvl 75's still get aggro in Ifrit's Cauldron... >.>

    Thus you learn your way around and sub ninja for tonko and use silent oils. I recommend the map on the koolaid LS's website.

    Farm silk and beehive chips...And quest all your ninjutsu scrolls for some nice gil. Also try and join as many BC40s as possible. You could also take a level 10 job to ghelsba and kill EP orcs for fire crystals.

    Are snipers worth buying these days? I would've thought Sushi would make them unnecessary, allowing you to spend that 1mil on more equip slots instead.

    Good luck.

    You might want to attempt clearing Promvyions sometime if your going after one of those.
