Gil Farming Recommendations

  • Use Materias to increase yield
  • Change game difficulty
  • Steal from enemies and sell items

Equip Materias To Farm Gil

The best way to increase the resulting Gil out of enemy encounters is to use and equip the Gil Up Materia as it doubles the gil rewarded after every battle. Using Materia's such as Magnify and First Strike also helps as it significantly reduces battle times, allowing you to replay & farm.
