    You will be bombarded with people telling you to research it on your own, check the AH, find what works best for you, etc. Just take 10 min and look at the Smithing section on Wiki, FFXI AH and see what you can afford to make or want to try. There are a lot of options.

    ^. People aren't going to tell you what they make money off of, because then everyone who reads this with smithing will start synthing them, then their profit drops. Figure it out yourself.

    Hmmm...

    Crafting is unique to every person like they said find the thing that works for you, mess around with some synths. Everyone has their own thing, don't follow word for word what other people tell you, find your own style and you'll be on your way to that relic.

    You're about to discover the one skill that a character can't have that's essential to higher level crafting. How to work the market. It's never "make item X, get Y amount of money" out of big-ticket items, ever. Find an item you can make, check the demand, check the profit margin, give it a try. FFXIAH is your friend here, as is a recipe list from Mysterytour or the like.
