I feel like this has likely been discussed but I didn't see it and I can't search the forums for some reason...
I remember in FFXI the game seemed so highly dependent on gil, which was notably hard to obtain, mainly because you could equip and resell items. Thus all of the best gear in the game could be bought (generally at a ridiculously high price).
As far as I know, "bind on equip" and "bind on pickup" had not been invented yet, with WoW being the first time I encountered with these features. They seemed to make the game less reliant on money, at least in end-game, with consumables and repairs being the main money-sinks.
Has FFXIV implemented these BoE/BoP features or something similar? Or am I going to have to spend over half my play time farming gil again to be decked out end-game like in FFXI?
