Hey everyone,
When I leveled off this for cooking way back when, I had a helluva a time finding millioncorn for cheap (i.e. from NPC or growing it yourself). Anyways, I whipped up a mini-guide on how to get corn, you can find it here:
http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?fitem=1141&mid=110483708350205
Hope this helps!

The Price rundown

Ok guys heres the money rundown... (Prices From Sylph and Windurst Waters)

Crystal - ~85g
Corn - ~50g
Worm - ~8g
Water - ~12g
Sum of the Cost - ~155g per synth

Now for the Payout (per synth) - 25 to 30g a piece x 12 = 300 to 360g

So off of one synth Your Profit is 145g to 205g. This is when you buy all of your Items from the AH or Shops in Windy... There is a major profit here. :) Hope it helps

Edit: Fixed Spelling

You can start synthing these (with advanced imaginery) at 19-20 skill. Be prepared to have a lot of breaks if you do it on any other day but water, until about 24.

These have been selling slow in windy, or I'm just being impatient. Likely option number two. :)

after you get dont creating your selbina butter (cap lvl 20) this is the stuff to craft!

Earth crystals:500-1000 (dependent on server)
Millacorn: not sure on price but between 30-80 each
Litte Worm: Merchant~4g a peice
Distilled watter: less then 12gil

your probably paying about 2k ish for a full 12 synths but you get a stack per synth.

Each stack sells for 400-800 depending on server, and if you add that up you get

1 stack of each material= 144 insect balls (12 stacks)

400-800x12= 4800-9600 - 2k (from creation)

Grand total = Profit of 2800-7600 gil, i think its one of the best profitable skill ups for cooking.

Just think youl be so consumed with the money your making, the 9 lvls will fly by. HAVE FUN, i make around 20k per day on insect paste per DAY!!

Crafting insect paste for cooking skillups til 29 - Great idea.

Selling your insect paste at AH for 400-800 (1k currently for me) - Foolish.

Go catch yourself some moat carp with the bait and sell a stack of that for 10k-13k. Sells WAY faster than the bait alone could ever, and for TONS more.

These are called balls of insect paste. But they use little worms. Worms aren't insects, they're gastropods.

I used Paste to get from 20->29 ... bout to make pineaple juice for 30.

Everything can be bought right in windurst waters except for the crystals.

Millioncorn can be bought form teh guild (though they run out alot) distilled water from the tavern, adn littel worms from the general store by the teleporter.

SO with advanced image support and the closeness of amterials waters is a pretty good spot to make it ~

Oh ~ and just head over to woods and load your bazaar. price around 20~25 and you will turn a profit and sell out fast

You can't, not on 500 gil.

Getting to 10 or so will require a lot of money, just because there are no profitable synths.

You _might_ profit if you buy items in stacks and sell the results individually, but I doubt it, and it'd take a _long_ time.

OTOH, if you are a mage, you can make OJ and use it to farm faster, earning you money.

In my server, Selbina Butter goes for about 700 on Bastok right now, so I suppose I could synth that for profit. Butter is a L20 item, and it's what you do after you are done with OJ.

Once you max out on Butter or Apple Juice, _then_ you can start making Insect Balls.

Sadly, no. Even if you're above the skill cap (referred to as the trivial synth level by many crafters, heh) you can still fail synthesis. Presumably even if you had your cooking skill at 100 you could still fail on these, although the odds would be vanishingly small.

Edit: inserted the word "heh." Heh.
