Alright, I'm going to say this. Your signature is promoting an offer site that gets their gil from IGE. IGE is one of the most known gil selling websites around.

Hence, anyone who signs up with these guys for "free gil" will more than likely get caughts easilly when SE slams more people off the game and deletes their accounts for buying or selling gil.

Aquiring any item, gil, or other player's account by any means outside of the game world means SE will eventually figure out what's going on at some point and you have a good shot at losing your account for it.

Fair warning to anyone who likes to play the game, gil buying promotes gil selling and is one of the largest causes of AH price jumps to absurd amounts. Refusal to buy it both protects you from evil SE wrath and will eventually bring prices down to reasonable amounts when gil sellers can't sell their items so high anymore.

Brass Flowerpot (Fire Type)
Herb Seeds (Wind Type)

Plant on Iceday, defeats the Wind in the Herb Seeds so you get less Bay Leaves and Fire defeats Ice.

Fertilize with Water crystal on Watersday, powers up growing process.

Harvest on Firesday for 17-18 crystals a plant. I get 8-10 stacks every week.

How do I know Bay leaves are Wind Type?
Plant on Windsday and Harvest on Windsday and I got ALL bay leaves from 10 pots.

not so sure this works.. followed it without missing a beat and got leaves 9 of 10 pots. I waited til watersday to harvest the last 2 plants of 10 and got leaves, and finally, fire crystals on last pot. FULL MOON 90% watersday so maybe firesday not being FM was the issue.. I'll try once more but harvesting on water had always got me plenty of fire ; ;

Why are you complaining about a measly 3-4K? Hades has them for 7-10K in a regular town.
RE: What the hell...
# Aug 13 2005 at 7:26 PM Rating: Decent
i totally agree with you here, in Remora these go for bout 7-11k, so all u out there that are whining about 3 or 4k, get over yourselves, plz, we would kill to have that...
# Jul 13 2005 at 1:11 PM Rating: Decent
i **** myself when fire gets to be 4.5k a cluster but i farm em

and yes they r rare in valkrum dunes but hey when they do pop as thf i can ge upto 5 clusters on 2 elementals which is awesome cause im a crafter.
and most recipes call for fire in most guilds
so just farm em for 7k a stack

not worth buying
# Jul 11 2005 at 10:12 PM Rating: Decent
well either way the demand for these crystals will get higher and so will the price. so stock up while u can. with the increasing players. ppl are just going to make more money. i do bonecraft so i never use fire crystals.
How to Deal with Rising Prices

On Lakshmi atm the price of Fire Crystal stacks in Sandy, Windy and Bastok is currently at an all time high of 6.5-7k and in jeuno..::sigh::.. its getting close to 7.5-9k.

For those who grow these then congrats cos at least it means you dont have to be buying them.

As a way to defeat the AH prices my LS has organised 'insider trading' in things that are getting ridculously expensive like crystals and foods.

We currently hav over 52 members, and since everyone has at least one crafting skill (including gardening) that they have lvled to a decent lvl, we all help each other out with the things we need.

This has become a very effective way of dealing with ridculous pricing, and there is always a demand for certain things such as juices and crystals, so we all benefit.

I would recommend to anyone to take up this line of 'trading' in your LS's as I know it works and can be very sucessful.
I Love it

Fire weather is extremly rare in Valkurm. In fact it's extremly rare everywhere. Which is why there are never clusters on the AH. Midgardsormr has seen fire crystals hit 7k a stack most days and 10k a stack when supplies are low. It's getting extraordinarily ridiculous that we have to pay such insane prices for a necessary object.

If Squeenix just made Fire Clusters way less rare, there would be an extreme drop in inflation game wide.

But they're just too stupid to realize that.

Crystals and Clusters are not restricted to exp and elementals, and the stock in AH is based on the crafter:exp'er ratio if everyone is crafting the crystals run out if everyone is leveling the crystals drop in cost.
When I was starting crafts and poor looking for ways to advance I would change jobs to low level and farm away on crows or gobs for fire and yagudos for wind.
One option that seems to be ignored is the fact that you can /Dig up crystals (on solo elemental weather effect) and clusters(dual weather elemental) while riding on chocobos. The Altepa Deserts are the place to /dig up these gems when the weather is out. I find a lot of "rare" items that are dug up to be rare even when there is mobs that drop them since no one will go out and dig, an example is King Truffles (120k stack on fenrir) farmed of mushroom type mob in CN, can also be dug up in the right areas, yet these items are rare if not uncommon. Chicken Bones, Logs, Acorns, Ores, Rocks, Bones, Coins and feathers can all be dug up in various zones, If these items are hard to find perhaps you could grabs some greens and /dig up some treasures.
SE has provided alternate means to get some items but if no one uses them it is not the programmers fault, some people try to educate themselves on items they farm up, and for that they should profit. Some items would simply not be available unless someone went out and did the work (Chicken Bones can only be mined or /dig'ged up in certain areas, and are not know to drop off any mob) then you too can profit from your efforts.
You could also farm your own crystals/cluster instead of buying them and if you do buy them shop around, sandy is usually the cheapest and bastok is usually most expensive, and if the cost does not adjust itself go farm the crystals for gil while you're exping.

This is kinda just a crazy, desprete scheme, but does anyone know if you get crystals of something Too weak to be worthwhile if a.. say.. lvl 1 person with signet is in your PT? Or do they have to make the final blow? Or does it have to be EP and above to everyone in PT to obtain them? I'm almost completely sure that they won't, but I really doubt I'm the only one desprete enough to try even the stupidest of schemes for these crystals. =)

Fire crystals are up to 4,000 and rising on Unicorn. I remember when these were worth about the same as a wind crystal (not long ago either). There must be a reason for the inflation of fire crystal prices since from what i've read the prices are rising on all servers. Anyone know whats up with this drastic increase?

Its really hard on me, being a new blacksmither who is having previously slightly profitable synths crushed into mega fund loss. :{

Getting crazy on Cerebus. They are going for over 4000 gil per stack. What's up? My level 9 WHM can't seem to find these off Vultures near Bastok anymore. I used to get a fire crystal 40% of the time I killed a Vulture, now its something like less than 10%.

Fight inflation!

Stacks jumped from 2k to 3.5-4k over the last two months on Seraph.

Do yourself a favor and learn to grow these--sooner or later you'll run out of low level jobs to level-up in Ghelsba. If many crafters turn to gardening and farming for their crystals, a nice price-war might ensue on the auction house.

ha! quit yer whining, on bismarck they've hit 4k a stack. but im sittin pretty cause i grow them ;)

I'm sorry, but if you would have paid more attention, you would have noticed that I posted 4 months before your "quit whining" post... its just that noone replied, so i gave up looking

by november, when you posted, fire crystals were 4.5k on my server, and they are currently at 5k at all AHs.

I get crystals off of to weak to be worthwhile all the time....it's how I farm. Please don't post stuff if you have no idea what your talking about.
I'm lvl 18/7 and killing rabbits right outside sandy and they drop earth crystals everytime.

Yea, you need to get your $hi+ straight fool. Crystals don't drop off too weak mobs. I'll bet you feel pretty damn stupid right about now.

You used to be able to get crystals from too weak enemies, but they changed that in the October patch. This is one reason why the prices of crystals have gone up.
RE: dumb
# Oct 27 2004 at 12:46 PM Rating: Decent
whoa, You just sat here and flamed some guy for posting when he has no idea, When in Fact you have no idea. You DO NOT get Crystals off of Too Weak Mobs. If the mob dont give exp you dont get crystal drops.
