maybe not but what about when you wanna buy that 1million dollar house or weapon surely the few hundred you get from kills/quests etc etc will take decades to achieve those goals
Not sure if you are even really responding to me or not, or if you even played the beta beyond level 10, but your post is pretty pointless and ill informed.
First off, The current houses are not meant to be personal housing. They are meant as Free Company housing, meaning they are supposed to be bought with the combined effort of multiple people. 2-3 people are supposed to be able to buy a small plot of land with the gil they save from leveling up to 50. That said, it would not take that long to raise a million gil.
Second, Quests start giving several thousand gil once you get to level 20+. Not to mention that you can select coin rewards and get even more gil.
Third, my girlfriend walked away from P3 with nearly 100k gil from simply leveling to 33 and doing some minimal crafting. She sold a few Arcanist grimores on the AH for 500 a piece (don't ask me why people where buying them lol). I made a quick 50k or so just doing leves for a couple levels.
Fourth, while crafting might not be your thing, Gathering is insanely easy and will net one with far more income than crafting in the short term. It takes no time at all to farm a stack of something that you can turn around and sell for profit right away. Crystals will ALWAYS be in demand and not everyone is going to want to go out and farm their own. Plus you can't buy them from shops so there will always be a market.
Making Gil in this game is not going to be hard or time consuming. Not unless you make it hard on yourself by refusing to do the simple things that actually make money.
And please, for the sake of everyone including yourself, stop being so argumentative. Especially with those that are just answering your questions with information. It is unnecessary. Edited, Jul 25th 2013 7:11pm by DamienSScott
