    I did errant feet till 91. After that, unless you have a huge starting capital, it's wyvern skins till 100.

    Start camping.

    1) open up your browser to your favourite recipe listing. Some good ones include
    -ffrecipe.com
    -ffxi.somepage.com

    2) find recipes that cap at 90 or above

    3) calculate the cost of making such recipes, including sellback price / rate of finished product

    4) choose a recipe that looks most effective

    5) make a few and evaluate whether the result meets your expectation with respect to expenditure

    6) repeat steps 3-5

    You have to camp the AH pretty much non-stop from here on out. Just get used to it. Having a mule sitting at a Jeuno AH 24/7 helps.

    If you have plenty of gil on hand, I'd keep an eye on the Behemoth Hide/Dusk Gloves market when the Mog Bonanza floods the server with hides. If sanity returns to that market, it's actually preferable to skill up on those from level 93 on. It's leathercraft's best tier 0, so under reasonable market conditions it should work out to a nice per-synth profit. That's not always the case when the supply is limited and people are gambling on getting lucky with an HQ, but that won't be the case in July.

    What he said. How many of these 'what should I skill on?' 'what can I synth to make money?' threads do we need? Do the research yourself! A lazy crafter = a poor crafter!

    PS: We need an angrier /angry.

    I did Errant feet mostly, you can also make ogre jerkins with your coeurl jerkins if you kept them, and throw in some Auster hats, Bison feet and Auster feet for good measure (but they sell slowly). Errant feet are worth nothing these days, so you'll be NPCing or desynthing them.

    You WILL need to synth Tiger masks and Panther masks to 100, both of which require wyrm hides, so you'll need to camp them asap -- don't wait to start stocking them. They also sometimes show up at Sandy AH so check there as well. Unless you'd rather spend millions finishing LC.
