Guide for Gathering Classes to Farm GiL in FFXIV

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn launched with 3 kinds of classes, battle classes, crafting classes and gathering classes. All these classes have their own methods to farm ffxiv gil. The battle classes can get ffxiv gil by farming in dungeons, as they can get rare material which only dropped in dungeons. The crafting classes can earn FFXIV GIL by making gear and some other items. But I think gathering classes can farm ffxiv gil easily.

Gathering classes, also known as Disciples of the Land, harvest natural resources around Eorzea. The natural resources can be used by Disciples of Hand classes (crafting classes) to craft new and useful items.


P.S: Note that this is a very general breakdown. Each gathering class contributes to every crafting class in a small way – the above just represents the more commonly used items. In the end, if you want to craft all by yourself, we would recommend being a high leveling gatherer for all classes, so you can get whatever you need easily.

Players can unlock these gathering classes by talking to Guild Receptionist in perspective Guilds. Players must reach Lv 10 or higher in a Disciple of War or Disciple of Magic class (battle class) to do this. Gathering classes can classify 3 jobs.

The Miner is a class that extracts minerals from grounds of Eorzea. The Miners Guild is in Ul’dah.
The Miner is a class that harvest fish and other sea creatures from the waters of Eorzea. Different from other gathering classes, when you fish, fishing tackles are expanded. Different fishing tackles are used to catch different fish in various environments. The Fishing Guild is in Limsa Lominsa.
The Batanist is a class that harvest resources from plant livesof Eorzea. The Botanists Guild is in Gridania.
All the gathering classes are influenced by the Gathering Attributes as following.
1).Gathering. Increases your likelihood of receiving an item while gathering.
2).Perception. Increases the probably of the item you receive to be HQ (High Quality).
3).GP. Ability Resource Points used for gathering abilities.

Gathering classes farming FFXIV GIL is different from battle classes and crafting classes. Battle classes and crafting classes could earn FFXIV Gil after they reach Lv 50. But no matter you are a Batanist, a Fisher or a Miner, you can earn FFXIV Gil even you are Lv 1. For example, crystal sharps are needed whenever, you can farm them when you are in low level of Botanist or Miner. In general, you can earn quite a lot of FFXIV Gil while you are upgrading.

Here is an important tip when you want to upgrade Botanist or Miner. Before you upgrading, check the price of all the items you can gather and get the most exp on Market Board. Then choose the highest price item to gather. It can help you to earn more FFXIV Gil.
