So after finding out that there is an AH in FFXIV I was wondering how the gil economy was in FFXIV compared to that of FFXI?
For those of you who may not understand, in FFXI you gained little money from selling things to vendors the majority of gil came from the competitive AH which people where constantly trying to get the best price, and had a supply and demand effect like a really economy. Killing monsters and selling things to NPC's was not an efficient to way to gain gil. This meant grinding hard for Beehive Chips a process that would take a while, and then you would wait for it to sell in the AH, and go grind some more, and buy ONE piece of armor, MAYBE! While this does not sound fun to many, I would love it because as you grinded you leveled, as you leveled you would be able to expand where you can farm, and make more money better gear, etc.
