A tip on getting all of the HQ mats. KNOW YOUR MARKET. Check it often for some nuab posting stuff for like 30gil. I buy HQ Diremite for less than 100g all day. 2-3 a time & then save them for a couple of days until I have a bunch to craft. Don't be a Jimmy!

With the right cross class abilities you can manipulate HQ items 3-4 levels ahead of you. You can make a ton of money while leveling up. Read my biggest crafting secrets right now. Watch exclusive video of my techniques in always get HQ items.
I'm buying HQ raw materials & HQing them into more HQ materials. Any material that stacks to 99 is my favorite to level up on. For example. I'll make HQ Dew Thread from HQ Diremite Web I purchased at the market place. There's always some random Jimmy that post a couple real cheap. I buy those until I have a stack of like 60+ & I'm ready to craft.
Here's a look at what I think our the most important crafting cross class abilities in FFXIV.
#1 Tricks of the Trade (Alchemy)
It randomly gives you 20CP back. You get this to pop 5 times, that's 100 CP back. Spend that extra CP on another Master's Mend & get 3 more chances.
#2 Careful Synthesis (Weaver)
Guaranteed. This ability guarantees progress. It'll get yuu slightly less progress than Basic Synthesis, but you can figure out what that number is going to be right away & decide where & how to use this ability. Plan you entire synth around Careful Synthesis being the last thing you do.
#3 Rumination (Carpenter)
This ability also gives you CP back & does not cost any durability.
"Removes Inner Quiet effect and restores CP proportional to the number of times control was increased."
Turn on Inner Quiet immediately. Wait for a chance to use Tricks of the Trade & move on. Watch any of my crafting videos for this technique.
#4 Hasty Touch (Culinarian)
This move will improve quality with no CP. BUT it's 50/50. I'm not sure if Steady Hand effects this ability. Either way, it is the 4th best ability to choose from. Imagine you're down to 17CP & 20 Durability. Use Hasty Touch for the hell of it. It's a free chance to increase quality.
#5 Rapid Synthesis (Armorer)
Just like Hasty Touch, this ability is 50/50. I really don't know what to say about this ability. It might get you out of a jam if you ever miscalculate a synth or make a mistake. It rushes down progress at 250%.
#6 Waste Not (Leatherworker)
This cost 56CP. I don't like anything that costs CP because I only want to use that for Basic Touch.
#7 Manipulation (Goldsmith)
This cost 88CP! Can't use this, Master's Mend & get 3 or more Basic Touchs off. It just doesn't work. I can't afford that CP.
#8 Ingenuity (Blacksmith)
"Lowers recipe level to current level for the next five steps."
I'm already HQing stuff 4-5 levels ahead of me. You can't do stuff 10 levels ahead of you, so why would you ever need this?
Check out my crafting videos coming soon.

Today Yoshi P posted some serious notes on what to expect from the 2.1 patch for all of you Warrior players out there.
I play level 50 Relic +1 Warrior. Currently in Coil. Haven't beaten anything in there yet, but I've been in twice so give me a break. Looks like in a couple of weeks it's just going to be even easier for me to play Coil. Especially when I'll have a move that won't allow my HP to drop below 1. lol PWN!
From Yoshi P:
- Recast time will be reduced from 30 to 20 seconds, increasing the frequency with which players can stun foes.
- Enmity generated by this skill has been increased.
- TP cost will be reduced from 70 to 60.
- TP cost will be reduced from 90 to 60.
- This skill will also reduce damage dealt by enemies for a period of time.
- Range will be increased from 3 yalms to 6, to make the skill more effective.
- This skill will now pull enemies toward your character.
- When using this skill, a player's HP cannot be reduced lower than 1.
- The animation for this skill will be revised.
- This skill will also reduce damage taken by 30%.
- Recast time will be reduced from 60 to 40 seconds, improving ease of use.
Thrill of Battle
- Effect duration will be extended from 10 to 20 seconds.
- Enmity generated by this skill will be increased.
- This skill will also increase HP recovery via curing magic by 20%.
- The improved healing effect granted by Wrath will be removed. Instead, the improved healing effect will be granted by Defiance.
- Due to overall balance changes, HP absorbed by damage dealt will be reduced from 300% to 100%
- Damage taken will be reduced by 20% for 6 seconds.
- This skill will generate increased enmity.
- Recast time will be reduced from 180 to 120 seconds, improving ease of use.
My 2nd FFXIV boss guide, Titan: Lord of crags Lv34
So we've all been having fun in the last couple of weeks and apart from the odd tough dungeon nothing really poised as a real threat.. Until now!
This has easily been my favourite fight so far as its enabled me to play a real support role and oversee the battle.
I struggled with Titan for a good few hours until I found a decent party through Duty Finder. Most players will be under equipped for the battle so make sure you have all up to date gear for Lv32-34
Here's a quick guide on what you could be wearing as a level 35 gathering aka DoL in Final Fantasy XIV. Including total mats & shards.

Watch this reh-tard whack trees & rocks for an hour. Leveling up. The key to leveling up while gathering is ...
Accuracy & Speed.
The more strikes that DON'T miss, the more XP & items you get. Moving from node to node & not missing any strikes is all about speed. What is your GPH? That's Gathering Per Hour, nubfarm. I'm guessing mine is around 720GPH during this video. I connected with a node 720 times during the hour. I think I'm low balling myself too. I did go from 27 to 29 in less than an hour.
Yeah I leve'd up, but yo it's 1 of the fastest ways to level up. The other option that I've been experimenting with is going back a few levels & chasing HQs. Earlier today I was after Wyvern Obsidian. I was getting 700+XP for HQ's. I got total 99 NQ's & 26 HQ's when I was done. I haven't done any of the math on this to see if it was a more valuable usage of my time. More on that to come.
Back to the strategy here. I mount my Chocobo immediately -I never move a step on the ground without being on my Chocobo- Okay, that's a lie. I will run to a close node, sometimes & I mean very rarely for me thus far. That is faster than calling in the mount. I see level 30's now STILL running around on foot. Don't be a Jimmy!
More on the gathering to come next week after Zero pulls his head from his ass & we can get back on track to 50.
Thanks for watching.

Do you need the Collector's Edition with all that extra crap? From a Jack-in-the-Box to a remote control car with a video camera, Collector's Edition games are getting out of control. I want them all!
11 different Collector's Editions of some type coming out between now and the holidays? Well Actually there's probably more that, but you'll find some of the crazier shit below. Statues, USB's, decks of cards, an unbeleivable Jack-in-the-box and of course ... DLC galore! There's also a few other things I must remind you of. Check it.Read full story...

Goldsmith I think is 1 of the fastest & cheapest ways to level up a Disciple of the Hand in Final Fantasy XIV. Raw materials are cheap & can be turned into very expensive items. All you need is patience & knowledge of your crafter catalog
I had to move right away because I didn't like that guys ass in my shot in the video. lol.
You can see I'm only synthing with HQ raw Silver Ore. This already gives me a boost of quality. Almost half. I do this because you can collect cheap Silver Ore for a few a days. Then when you have a stack you start to craft. (I know I keep saying this, but it's 1 of my favorite strategies.)
Don't even try to get crazy with any of my crafting techniques until you have Tricks of Trade & Careful Synthesis. I live by those 2 while crafting & they are constantly used.
Step 1: Pop Inner Quiet. ESPECIALLY if you have Rumination. (Carpenter level 15)
Step 2: Look to see if Tricks of the Trade is available.
Step 3: Use Steady Hand.
Step 4: Use Standard Touch. Stop to get any Tricks of Trades that pop up.
Step 5: Use Master's Mend when you are down to 10 Durability. Watch for Tricks of the Trade.
At this point everything depends on how much CP you have left. Use Steady hand if you can, even if you only have enough for 1 Standard Touch afterwards. Remember Tricks of the Trade can pop up anytime & you might get 2 shots. Or get just enough CP to use Standard Touch of Basic Touch.
You can always use Rumination at the end if you need just a little more CP, it's a great back up.
Final Step: Use Careful Synthesis to finish the synth. If you know Careful Synthesis & Basic Synthesis will both get the job done in less than 2 turns, USE CAREFUL SYNTHESIS in finish. IT'S Guaranteed.
Hope you make a lot of HQ & Gil. Good luck.
Thanks for reading. Don't be a Jimmy.

Kmart has the Deal of the week again when you purchase Red Dead Redemption or Mafia II ... there's a catch though.
Deal of the Week
Red Dead Redemption with a $20 coupon at Kmart. Red Dead is going to be the game of the year. Unless you are a Jimmy and would rather play a Ninja Gaiden from 2 years ago.
Mafia II with a $20 coupon at Kmart. While you're picking up Red Dead, might as well get Mafia II too. The next game you buy at Kmart will be like $22 with tax. Stolen! All my receipts from Kmart are less than retail. I have two that are less than $25. I am saving money there.
Want to shop online?
You can save the same amount of money if you shop for games online. Amazon does free shipping which is a bonus, if you don't like to leave the house like me. I'm pwnn all day everyday, I ain't got time to drive a million miles to the store. Amazon also offers release day shipping, which works very well. I have never missed a release day shipping delivery. It's only one dollar more than the regular shipping, usually.
Red Dead Redemption as low as $44.99. Always get free shipping. So for an extra $5 here, you don't have to leave the house. Wink face.
Starcraft II PRICE CUT!! If you want to play this and don't have it yet, you are a Jimmy.Read full story...

A short Ifrit guide describing all of his moves and how to deal with them.
If you're new to MMO's or Final Fantasy this guide will breakdown the first boss you take on in game, Ifrit. Although he is the first major battle he does prove quite a challenge for beginners and will easily punish you if your party is reckless.
After a lengthy cut scene you will be thrown into the arena to take on the fire demon himself.
Bare in mind that as he is the first boss and your team mates may not understand the mechanics of the battles yet and may make the odd mistake, its always good to go over the battle plan before the fight, people will thank you for it.

Plan on leveling any Gathering DoL Class? Check out this guide in best gear for those levels. (20-30)

Head: Velveteen Bandana Lv. 23
Velveteen Wedge Cap of Gathering Lv. 27

Beating turn 2 of Coil is pretty simple. If you don't mind dealing with enrage mode & have 3 healz.
Team Gouki & [FC] TAW down turn 2 in 1 shot w/ a new strategy. Visit Gouki.com & TAW.net for more info. This aired live on Gouki.tv. Coil streams every Weds & Saturday.
Basically what's going on here is we wait until ADS gets down to 1 click & he will go into RAGE MODE. At that point he won't do anything else, but spa AOE's. So we just spam AOE heals & burn him down with DPS. Pretty easy, I was kicking myself for not trying other ways after wiping on this stupid balls for weeks.
