Eureka is one of the hidden lucrative instances of the new FFXIV franchise and the one that is being used up by most of the players. Well, you will see why in a bit. 

You can easily access the Forbidden land after finishing the mission “And we shall call it Eureka”, Eureka will be available after snatching it from the Rhalgr’s reach through Galiena. 

You will directly not go to this place and will not access it. You will go through it by talking to Rodney and by meeting with other players to form a party of your own. You need to complete many different missions that are posed to you and prepare yourself for the “raids” that are going to be one. 

The end of this mission is done when you get your hands on the Anemos Lockboxes and Clusters of crack. The rewards will be hidden inside these boxes and you can sell these things by taking them to the market. 

Use Treasure Maps

Craft & Sell

Gil farming FFXIV by Crafting

The easiest way to make it to the top of FFXIV is to go through the Discipline of Land and Hand. Let us take a walkthrough into how crafting works. 

Crafting classes include various pieces of training related to Blacksmith, Goldsmith, and alchemy along with culinary training. The advantage of learning these pieces of training is that you will be sought after and will be eligible to buy other things like items of furniture, etc. Thus your market value will skyrocket and you will be able to earn revenue and rewards with this Discipline of Hands. 

If you learn these disciplines then it will be easy for you to make a profit at the Gil farm. Your crafting levels are directly proportional to the Gil made.

Gathering

The disciple of hand goes along with The Discipline of Land. As you learn the art of crafting, all the items made by you are taken by the gatherers and are sold in the market. Some crafters would gather the raw materials themselves and make extra profit by selling them in the market. The higher the gathering levels the more Gil you can make. 

The training classes that are useful in the Discipline of Land include, Botany, fishing, and Mining, these classes you can take to obtain and gather supplies to craft a product and then sell it in the market. Mining is said to provide you with maximum profit and if you want to earn more spend your classes wisely. 

Roulettes

If you don’t want to focus on crafting or gathering then roulettes are going to be your thing. You can earn up to 5000-9000 girls in dungeon roulettes and about 10,000-12,000 gils by using the trial roulettes. You need to select the option of “Adventurer bonus” to avail of these options. 

You should have finished level 10 of the main story quest to access the roulette level. You will have to unlock the Duty Finder. You have to access the Duty Finder by going back into the main menu and scrolling down to the duty tab.

Once you select the Duty Finder, click on the blue square that has a question mark inside to view the unlocked roulettes. You have to then select the roulette of your choice and begin making Gil.

Send Retainers to Different Ventures

To unlock the ventures you should have completed level 17 of the main story quest that is being offered by the Scions of the Seventh Dawn. Finishing this, you need to take the retainer out with the help of a gear. 

Next move to the summoning bell present nearby to call the retainer that you have unlocked previously. You need to select the option of “Assign Venture” from your retainer. To send this retainer you should have a retainer currency that can be obtained when you complete tribe quests and levemetes and you also need to trade company seals.
