The following sites have been tremendously helpful to me during my time in FFXI and I will undoubtedly be going back to them time and again for refreshers or to relearn what I may have forgotten. I hope you can find at least some of them useful in your own quest for knowledge of how to be a better player.

As always, if you find a mistake or would like a site to be considered as an addition to the list please don't hesitate to reply to the thread or send me a PM.

Here, have some bookmarks.

Auctionable items from NPCs:

-For some reason, Woodworkers and Clothcrafters still buy Chocobo feathers from the AH. You can make some newbie money by buying stacks of Chocobo feathers from the stables, and eventually, Black Chocobo feathers if your nation is in first place and you're in your starting city.

-Lvl 15 Ninja scrolls can be bought for around 1500 and sold for at around 3000, sometimes 3500-5000. They have limited demand, and you may saturate the market with too many. You know, the Inn is right next to the AH.

Sellable items from AH:

-Drk scrolls usually drop for players who are not Drk, or are not the appropriate level, and are sold on the AH. If the price is selling below 1500, you can buy the scroll and sell it to an NPC for 1500.

-The heavy axe can be gained from the Trouble at the Sluice quest, and is usually sold on the AH for 5k. If the price on the AH ever goes below 5k, you can buy one and sell to an NPC for around 5k.

A Discerning Eye: This quest can be done every time by using the Windower, hitting print screen when the model is shown, and opening in paint to view the model. It's cheap, dirty, and requires no brain power. You should feel ashamed for even thinking about this.

Unfounded Rumors:

-Digestive Magic-

The cheapest food on the AH is Rarab Tails, as demand is very low. You can buy these, along with Gysahl Greens, and go to Parike-Poranke in lower Jueno. Set up a trade macro to give Rarab Tails, and another to give Gysahl Greens. Now keep giving a tail followed by greens, and Parike-Poranke will mention how many indigestions he's cured. A multiple of 1000 will show "Parike-Poranke's digestive magic skill rises 0.1 points." So far, no one has found any purpose for this, but a server wide effort of using disposable income on greens and cheap food, performed by linkshells who have nothing better to do, will eventually be able to raise his skill to something better, just to see what happens. It helps out the economy too, as it's a great waste of money.


-Treasure hunter-

If every skill is based on an element, and Treasure Hunter is based on light, then +light equipment will help Treasure Hunter. There is no proof of this, unless someone wants to do some parsing tests.

-Craft theory-

Every craft has items that can be earned through Guild Points. The best item is furniture at 150,000 GP, which must be earned at level 90 or higher (the last craft rank).

Assuming you worked on one craft to get all items including furniture, then develed your craft back to 60 and started earning guild points for another craft, you could get every guild item and last furniture item after spending about...

430K on Woodworking
420K on Bonecraft
410K on Clothcraft
390K on Cooking
410K on Goldcraft
410K on Leathercraft
410K on Smithing
420K on Woodworking
570K on Fishing

To get every last Guild item in every craft (not counting the 1500 pt items) you would have to spend 3,870,000 Guild Points. This would be longer and more costly than getting 75 in all jobs, and you'd lose your crafting levels just to get every item. Of course, the guy who got every job to 75 was rewarded by a GM. This is also the way to unlock Jedi in Star Wars Galaxies.

Must bump again ^^

But, I noticed 1 flaw:

No rdm ; ; lol, here's the link to the second version of RDM 101 (version one is still sticked in the rdm forum)


This also has some good info for all jobs, like a skills chart. Great stuff in thurr =) Good stuff in here too, though :3

Wow how did [long] this take to put together?

These are links I've compiled over my time playing FFXI. To compile the list and put in a neat format like it is took maybe 1-2hrs. I did this while doing some crafting so it wasn't that bad.

As for why there are not RDM links or why some jobs/crafts/whatever don't have many links is because I have yet to really need to research those. My RDM is only lvl 20 and so I didn't need to do much research for it and what I did was mainly ask high-lvl RDMs for advice. My goldsmithing and smithing are lvls 3 and 2, respectively. I will soon be starting on smithing (once I cap out Alchemy) and so will be doing a bit of research for it and should come up with more links at that point.

Aww I thought this might be a thread about 'FFXI 2.0' - the graphical upgrades that people are talking about will happen with Xbox360 release. :p

But this is even better. Nice work man.

This is great, and a big help to have all of this information in one post, but I just wanted to point out a dead link to you real quick

Unfortunately, neither of these links work. I've tried clicking, right-clicking and opening in new window, and straight copying the URL into the address bar, and every time I get an error page I cannot understand because it's in a different language. I tried to use altavista's bablefish to translate the page ... no go ... other than that, everything else I've tried has worked ... thanks again!!

you could get every guild item and last furniture item after spending about...
430K on Woodworking

I'm sorry but I disagree with this statement. You need 320k GP for the 2 clothing items and the furnishing. GP costs me an average of 10 gil per point. For 320k GP it's going to cost roughly 3.2 million, no where near this figure of 430k listed.

These links do work. I just tried them again. I use Firefox and after clicking on the link I get the page you mentioned (the error page). At that point if I hit the 'Go' button it will load the image correct, but if I hit refresh it will not.

I just made a sticky request, and we're not getting one. >< However, this thread can still be submitted as a guide.
