Obtaining GearFollow

Yo everybody. I was wondering if any of you guys know what I can do to get better gear? Currently I am a phys level 13 and Gladiator 9. I still have the exact same gear when I created my character. Am I suppose to craft my own gear or get some by other means? Also, I'm a level 8 blacksmith and level 7 armourer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Make your own. Buy gear from other players/retainers. Occasionally you'll get something from a levequest.

Check the retainer wards prepare to spend hours writing down names and prices....retainer wards??? (Look for the tiny triangle and name on the map and teleport when the icon comes on screen) No one in game tell you this.

For recipes, http://www.eorzeapedia.com/wiki/en/Main_Page seems to be the best way to find them. Good collection, and growing I assume.

Level 10+ quests are where you start seeing gear offered up. Until then, you'll need to buy from other players mostly.

You might rarely see some slight upgrade on an NPC, but mostly over priced

Oh, one more question if you guys dont mind. I don't have alot of money, since many of the gear in the retainer wards sell gear around 10k so how can I earn more money (other than levequest)?

I would highly recommend picking a craft you are interested in and the associated gathering skill. I started crafting before I started gathering and had to play catch-up eventually. You can get some quick gil selling stuff you don't want to an NPC and free skill ups with the stuff you do want.

If you're not getting decent money from levequests, it's because you're still doing the level 1s. The level 10s will give you maybe five to ten times as much money.

Did you noticed that this site has a database with recipes? Just check it and you will figure out in no time what you can craft at your current Rank/level. The only problem with crafting is that you have to check the bazaars of other players for materiaal/parts or you can train more craft classes then only blacksmith and armorer.

^^^ This...I pretty much wore the starter gear until Rank 10. Then when you can do the R10 leves, or hit R13 and start joining parties on R20 leves you will earn plenty of gil to buy new toys.
