Gil comes so easy in this game, comparative to XI. Can go mining, fill up my inventory, take it to any NPC with a sell option and make 60k. The sooner people realize this, then better off we'll all be.
This will likely change; levequest rewards as well. At the moment, SE is getting gil pumped into the economy to get it started up. They did the same thing in XI; in the first months after the initial Japanese release, beastmen dropped several times the gil they do now. Look to see all this get adjusted when SE reaches their target for gil in circulation.
Edit add: Also, as others have noticed, the Eorzea gil seems to be worth considerably less than the Vana'diel gil. Based on the NPC prices I've seen, it seems to be about ten FFXIV gil to one FFXI gil. Edited, Oct 1st 2010 1:36pm by ChrisMattern
