Best Gil Making Methods

Every gamer agree that once you are in a mid-game, it is usually a difficult task to accumulate money, which is useful in buying weapons, cooking ingredients and healing items. Unlike other games, main mission or killing monsters does not reward any Gil. This has been due to the realistic nature of the game. For the FFXV, we are going to equip you with ways of earning up to a million Gil effortlessly.

Take Part in the Totomostro

While in Altissia, there are usually hidden arena battles. Though they are small, they will be useful in accumulating your Gil stock. In this mini-game, you can place bets before fighting the monsters. Once they win the battle, you get to collect medals which can later be exchanged for 700 Gil. I know 700 Gil does not seem like enough money, but a few more battles will earn you more trophies which will result in more money.

If you are patient enough, you could repeat the Totomostro over and over again and in five hours, you could have almost 5 million medals will you could trade to the merchants for about a million Gil. You will then be good to go.

Accept Hunting Quests

We all agree that hunting quests are not all that enjoyable. However, since we are in need of Gil, we have to push our limits. One way of getting hunting contracts is by going to the local restaurant. If you do not push too much, you could be awarded a hunting contract through which you can earn treasures that you will then hand over in exchange for Gil.

For easier hunts, accept those that should take place in the morning or that have no specific time duration. Night hunts are normally more difficult and you may feel that you are not getting value for your effort. However, its reward is better once your party is powerful enough.

Play the 10K Justice Monster Five

The Justice Monster is a pinball game that is found in several diners and cafes in the world of Final Fantasy XV. It is a game that Noctis and his friends like to play a lot. The normal playing cost is 10 gil with normal rewards.

However, there’s a hidden 10k machine in Altissia for more advanced players with great rewards. In this scene, you are expected to play for hours and fight against the enemies and bosses. In order to complete the task, you need to lower their HP as much by accurately shots and combo hits. Once enough treasures are accumulated, you will be rewarded with luxurious items, including accessories. The 99 chests reward you with Wind-up Lord Vexxos that can be sold for 500k.

Side Quests

Completing the mission might not earn you enough Gil but taking part in these quests may be the answer to your Gil troubles. In order to take part in these quests, you have to talk with the quest giver and complete their quests. There are several quests that one may be assigned. Some may involve defeating an enemy while others may be fetching some item or even taking pictures of certain places. Once the quest has been completed, you will be rewarded with EXP, gil, and items.

The recommended quest giver is VYV for his photography quests. This task will often involve taking pictures of various land marks that are found in the game’s world. It might take you out of the route but totally worth it.

Find The Treasures in Your Inventory and Sell them

When you reach certain points of the game, there will be a lot of unused items and accessories in your inventory. Sell everything that you do not plan to use or need it. Some of them are worth up to a few thousand Gil. Always keep your eyes on the map for treasure spots or those shining white collectibles!

Quests in Final Fantasy 15 Explained

Quests in Final Fantasy are separated into two categories: main story quests and side quests. Side quests are even categorized further down into three types: hunting quests, regional quests, and only-for-fun. Main story quests involve around the story progression on Noctis, how he reclaims back his throne, and fulfill his destiny.

Side quests like hunting quests, on the other hand, do not relate much to the game story but gives player additional rewards. Regional quests are quest lines specified to certain places and locations. Only-for-fun quests do not give anything but fun to do.

From time to time during the story progression, a player is given 2-4 choices in a conversation. Although choosing any choice eventually leads to a similar conclusion, it comes with different rewards, mostly AP or EXP. Over 200 side quests are available in Final Fantasy XV. Completing the game perfectly can easily take more than 200 hours of playtime.

Main Quest

Final Fantasy XV has 16 chapters in total with many main quests in each. Main quests focus on Noctis’ destiny and his responsibility as the sole heir of the Lucis Kingdom.

According to Hajime Tabata, the first half of the game revolves around Noctis finding 13 royal arms hidden all around the Eos. Gameplay is like an open-world where a player can journey and make an exploration in anyway they want.

The second part of the game is more linear that a player is required to follow specific steps to help Noctis take back his homeland from an invasion of Niflheim and save the world from falling into the complete darkness.

Main quest locations and destination are marked with a red exclamation mark on a map. They can be completed one after another right away without any condition. It is possible to focus alone on the main quests and complete the game story without even having to do a single side quest. The game director claimed that main quest rewards alone are enough for character progression.

It should normally take around 40+ hours to complete the game story.

Hunting Quest

Hunting quests, marked by a yellow monsterish icon on a map, are additional sources of income helping a player to have enough gil for purchasing necessary healing items and equipment. They work like a monster hunt where a player needs to hunt down certain monsters and claim for rewards.

A list of monsters with rewards, including gil and item, and requirements can be found in any Diner NPC (Noctis and his party can eat here for additional food buffs as well) . Each NPC provides different monster lists. And each monster has different conditions. Some can be found all days and nights, some only during the day, and some only at night. The amount of rewarded gil decreases significantly when hunting the same monster for the second time.

A monster-hunting poster is another way of accepting a hunting quest. It can be found everywhere during the road trip. However, only one monster hunting quest can be accepted at a time.

Each monster also requires specific monster hunting ranks starting from one to ten. Completing a hunting quest for the first time rewards a hunting rank(s). When hunting ranks reached certain amount, more difficult hunting quests can be accepted.

Considering it is a great resource of Gil and experience for leveling, a player should check a hunting quest the same time they have the map updated from the diner NPC. Some monster location is located pretty close to the main quest destination making completing two quests within the same time highly possible.

It is not necessary to accept the same hunt twice unless its location is, again, near the main quest destination.

Regional Quest

At present, not much information is revealed on a regional quest. What we have known so far is that this type of quest is different based on specific NPCs in each region. Weapon upgrade from Cid is an example of the regional quest.

Cid is located in Hammerhead. He is a friend of King Regis as well as his personal car mechanic. Cid is also the same person who repairs Regalia for Noctis and his party. From time to time, a player can upgrade a weapon with him by finding certain upgrading materials.

Regional quest is expected to provide an additional story to the main story quest as well. It should be about the whole events happened in Eos, Noctis’ relationship with other characters, the game background story, and more.

Since there seem to be different types of quest in the regional quest, it should come with different rewards. Some provides an upgraded weapon, some might be materials to customize Regalia, and some might be gear and so on.

Only-For-Fun Quest

This type of quest literately does not give anything. It does not provide any legit reward or story, but only for an entertainment purpose. The only-for-fun quests include fishing, chocobo racing, mini-games, and more.
