How to obtain a lot of gils ?
« on: April 20, 2010, 08:48:14 PM »
Hello everyone,

i want to obtain the trophy "Treasure Hunter" but it requires a lot of gils. Have you got any tricks to obtain this trophy please.

I don't want to kill the Adamentoise to obtain the Platinum Ingot because it's too long and i have no luck :(

If someone can help me, i would be grateful.

Thanks

To be honest I wouldn't really know any quicker way than farming the Adamentoise.

He has a 25% of dropping the Platinum Ingot (which sells for 150.000 Gill), but besides that he also has the Trapezohedron as 1% rare drop.

And its the Trapezohedron which is the main reason why you'll need so much Gill in the first place. They are needed for the tier 3 weapons, but cost 2.000.000 Gill a piece if you want to buy them.

It might take a long long time farming Adamentoise, but that's basically what the Treasure Hunter trophy is all about. It isn't hard to get, it just takes a long long time :-\

I'm agree with you: the trophy just takes a long time. I've spent about 85h on the game and it is very long to obtain gils.

I already have 4 of 6 ultimate weapons and i have 3 Trapezohedron. I want to have each weapon / accessory at max level so that's why it takes a long time.

I need to get this trophy still but now SSFIV is out I just don't have the time to actually get it.
I do find it sad that you do not get Gil from fights.
I have managed to get 6 Trapezohedrons from fully upgrading to 2 Kain lances and then dismantling (Spelt wrong sorry) them. Probably the most cost efficient way of doing it.

unfortunetly, admantoise are 1 of the best ways to get gil, do you use the summon trick? or do you use the regular way(stagger, kill)

Summon+Death spam seems to be working reasonably well for me so far.

The Adamantoises are Vulenerable to Death? O.o

I haven't managed to beat one yet. Me and my friend have nicknamed them the "Stomp Deaths" coz they stamp, I die.

My current method of gil farming, is repeatedly killing everything in Edenhall, the room where the Proudclad was for the second time.
Perfume (12,500) & Scarletite (7,000) are usually what I sell, along with Credit (500) and Incentive (2500) Chips :)

Any better ways?

I have. Perfume's the best one, so I just farm that.

I'm guessing things like the Dolls and other high-selling stuff?
