Hey. Been roaming these pages alot lately to find npc prices and such, but never registered before now.


I now have ALOT of things in my inventory. For most of you that is probably great, and the Gil is glowing in your eyes.
But for me, Im just confused. I dont know if the items have any value for others so that I should put it in my bazar, or if it is just trash that I can sell at some lucky npc.

Sure, I can look it up here on the items list to see what it is used for, and whatnot. But when you got about 90 different things in your inventory, and you are going to search this site, then search and compare with the current bazar marked, then ofcourse open and close the slow menues of ffxiv... That would take ages.

Before the marked got updated with the search item function and the red nice star, I usualy just sold everything at the npc because I just did not want to bother using hours to get some small profit when I could have fun playing instead. However, now that the game finaly have moved one step closer to an auction house, I start to think that I should be getting some more profit for my items, because every time I need something, it sure as H*** cost alot ^^

So my question:

How do YOU solve this problem and compete with the marked without using many hours per day?
And does anyone know of a list like a word.doc, or excel.doc that you can download where all the ''npc sell'' prices are gathered?

Any tips would be appriciated ^^

You can also use the Search Counter in the Market Ward to look up what prices other people are selling items you have in order to get a better idea of what you want to sell your own stuff for.

I know it is a pain cause you have to access your retainer from the wards when you sell in the wards - but you will have way more luck selling things in the wards than on your own bazaar.

reasonably common drops that are worth a fair bit:

-buffalo hide
-silver ore/sand

Things I would love to buy but people don't sell:

- effervescent water (I know I would pay 3K for one, easily)
- aldgoat milk (I would pay 600 gil each for these in a heartbeat)
- tomatoes (would happily pay 1K each for these)
- button mushrooms (I would pay 1K each with a smile)
-Puk wings (I think about 800 gil would be pretty fair)


-mole meat
-marmot meat
-marmot hides
