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.

Two full days of experience and ranking up. Also, tons of walking around aimlessly. What have I learned from the beta so far?
Sqaure-Enix launched the Final Fantasy XIV beta early this week and it was a pain in the ass to get in. Apparently, from my understanding, Square-Enix opened up the beta with like 10 different servers. Those servers filled up faster than FNJimmy trying to solve any random puzzle in Darksiders. I had no chance that first day. I didn’t even really understand how and what was happening with trying get into the beta. I think the problem here is that the Square-Enix website is all done in Japanese and then translated straight over into English. The site is crazy backwards sometimes. Also I feel like I’m logging in a 100 times. Two days later, I did get a code and I was in.
With the beta you can create and play with as many different characters as you want. Actually I don’t know if that’s true, what I do know is that I have made 4 different characters. The first character I made was how I imagined I wanted him before I got the chance to play. I chose Disciple of the hand, Alchemist. I had no idea that with this selection I would have no weapon and my main attack would be “throw stone.” Thank god this is a trial run. At this point I tried to learn about the settings, moving around with a keyboard and getting familiar with the controls. I did a few quests, the levequest stuff is cool. So after playing for sometime and only doing 1 hit point of damage, I knew something was wrong and started my second character.
Disciple of war, Archer. Now I’m railin’ right out of the box. Gone are the days of gathering stones to throw at Nutbiters and here we go with 40+ hit point, crushing arrow blows to your dome. So now I got some combat under my belt for reals this time. I realize I just needed a little money and I could go buy any weapon I want. Once I buy a new weapon I can change my class. Buy a polearm, become a lancer. Buy a sword, become a gladiator. This also works with the crafting. Buy a sledgehammer, become a goldsmith. So yeah, you can start the game as any class you want. Now I can get my alchemist and get him a wand so he can start casting some magic.
Before I switch back to my original character I created. I made another character and started him in a different city. I chose for this Jimmy to be a Thaumaturge. Yea, I know the names of the classes are a little ridiculous in FF14. Thaumaturge means black mage in normal talk. I also picked a human male this time. Previously I had chosen the little Lalafell Jimmy and an Elf. My human mage started with high and equal HP/MP. Cool. He also dealt major solo damage. I didn’t want to play has a mage in this game, but I may level it secondary.
So now I think I understand the leveling, the controls and the questing. I start a third character, with a class I wouldn’t usually choose and in the third and final city. Disciple of war, Lancer. This city Ul’dah, is a city of bricks. One of the regrets I had in Final Fantasy XI was I chose the “castle city” in that game and I felt like I was in prison. So I don’t like Ul’dah in Final Fantasy XIV and I won’t choose this city. That’s official. I took my lancer out and killed a few things, got some gil. Final Fantasy money for you nuabs. Went back to town and bought myself a pick axe. Time to learn about mining. Got a levequest and took off out the front door. It took me a while to find the mining spots. Eventually I and it was there I discovered the mining mini-game. I couldn’t find any technique to swinging the pick axe other than to just keep whacking away at at the stone. I’m sure there is some trick to it.
Back to my original character. I got tons of money from stumbling around town doing quests. Got some money from being in parties earlier throwing rocks at Star Marmots out in the wild. Searched the town high and low looking for the Jimmy who had the magic wands for sale. Bought a bow and some arrows too. I already have my alchemy tools. Which I couldn’t figure out how to do shit for crafting. Fuck it. Lets kill something. Used the bow and arrows, killed a bunch of wild beasts(actually cute little furry things.) Leveled my Archer to rank 5 in no time. Now I’m starting to feel the leveling addiction. Wait what this? I just switch my bow and arrow to my magic wand and now I’m a Thaumaturge. WOW! Now I’m hurling magic balls across the grassy knolls. We are rollin’. By the way in FF14 the mages can throw magic “balls.” It’s a regular attack and uses NO mp. Cool stuff. Leveled my Thaumaturge to level 4.
The time has come for me to log back in. What will I do next? Trial and errors continues. Get ready for the Final Fantasy XIV release. Play it early if you get the Collector’s Edition. Don’t be a Jimmy. Join the Gouki Guild.

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

The world is full! Now you can get a 1017 error when trying to purchase the game.
Straight from Square-Enix:
"Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn, we are currently experiencing extremely long wait times for users to be able to log in and play. As a temporary measure, we will halt sales of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A REALM REBORN’s digital download products so we can accommodate all of those wishing to play. We are working to expand our server capacity in the coming days."
Well, that's interesting... looks like they've sold more copies than they can handle on the server side. I'm glad they're doing this so all of the pre-orders can hopefully get in and play until they work this out enough to continue selling.

Level 50 gathering is all about crystals, spiritbonding & getting stuff you actually need. Most importantly (as always) don't waste any time gathering Jimmy! Wanna know my GPH on crystals? Here's how in this video.
I spend the first half of this video working on -figuring out- spiritbonding. What I think it's coming down is jewelry only. I can try something like what I do with the Warrior. I have a completely different set for that, that is only just to turn into materia. I think I can do the same thing with the gathering, but I haven't tested to see what kind of a drop that would be in my perception. Nobody give a fuck about gathering ...
In the second half of the video I race myself to see how many crystals & shards I can get in 30 mins. It was about 200 each if I recall. You can watch the video & see just how I did it.

I've been wanting to learn how to speed run Wanderer's Palace in FFXIV. Mostly because I hate running these dungeons over & over at this point. So I figure if I can get 3-4 runs in 1 hour, I'll be thrilled! Check out these videos.
So this is JP. This is the first 1 I saw. Everything is pretty obvious here. Group them all up & drop bombs. Yesterday I saw another video, but it had a PLD leading as well. I asked around for a WAR speedrun & you can check that out below.
I definitely thing the Scholar works best with a Warrior right now. The Black Mage is great for AOE damage & the Warrior really needs a Bard to keep his TP up.
I am about to get my Relic +1 weapon & I'll be doing some serious practice on my speedruns. You can watch on the stream when I do & I'll post the video after I get a time I like. Shooting for under 15 mins for sure.
If you're on Malboro & want to team up, send me a message. Avitas Sibannac. Don't be a Jimmy!
