How to make money & level up with HQ crafting tricks. Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn Weaver Level 21-23. HQ crafting gear equipped. I only synth HQ. They call me Mr. HQ.
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!

I call them le-ve. If you have the leves to spare, you can save a ton of money & time on leveling craft. The trade craft leves give the best rewards. Crystals, Cash & EXP. A lot of EXP.
Obviously this is a technique I'll be waying thru the rest of the FFXIV life cycle. 18K EXP is easily worth 5K. Somebody gotta jack up the price. Might as well be me while I level up off of these nuabs. Don't be a Jimmy!
Thanks for watching.
One of my favorite times of the year. I love the E3 Press Conferences.
Jimmy is back! It's E3 2009. I'm drunk talking about the Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony Press Conferences. Don't miss this one Jimmy!
Three big games out this week. Only one has any stories on Gouki. Guess which?
First off, if you read this site or listen to the podcast you know today is the first official day of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Many of you have already been playing it of course, but the game is officially out today.

What are your odds on desynthing?
I'd been saving up for this desynth fest for months. I figured no matter what I had to pop all of these before the 2.4 patch. Here's how it all went down.Read full story...

So You Think You Can Gather airs every Thursday LIVE on Gouki.tv. 1PM pst. All gathering/crafting level 50. Server Malboro. Learn tricks from 1 of the best on the server. This week, Unspoiled Node hopping.
As you can see if you are watching errrr skipping thru this video is that, this is a rough draft of my plan to maximize time spent while gathering from unspoiled nodes. Near the end of the video I begin to realize that just getting shards, crystals & clusters during this time is the best bet. Yeah I can swing out to the Gold ore or the Darksteel ore. I can't really figure out what else really has in value. (at least on my server) Trillium? Really? I'll probably swing out for Crawler Cocoons.
Basically it all comes down to the Clusters & stuff. People are always in need for those & they are constantly selling. Since SE wiped out a bunch of other bots last week the price on all of them as only gone up.
WTF is Thanksgiving this week? So we're probably gonna skip the show. Perhaps I'll do a special episode on Saturday. Follow me on Twitter @GoukiJones & on the Twitch as well to find out when Gouki.tv goes LIVE.

How to make your way across Eorzea gathering the most valuable items from Botany & Mining.
600+ GP is optimal for maximize your gathering. You want to use Unearth II before your first swing. Hit the appropriate slot you want to mine & then pop Solid Reason/Ageless Words after 1 or 2 more hits. Then use Deep Vigor/Brunt Force for the final hit to guarantee that 100%HQ at the end.Read full story...
This here rack o'nuabs discuss when the FFXIV servers will break. These idiots have know idea what they are talking about. Plus other news, like Gamescom. Uplay & Splinter Cell. FnJimmy is dumb.
So yeah, not even close with the servers crashing problem. They went down first 8AM on Saturday & again at 1:30PM. The Duty Finder has completely crashed & players can't finish quests or enter dungeons. They have a fix they say & I assume that's what they are doing now with this server downtime.
Thanks for watching.

Square Enix still hasn't told us the official release date for the next phase of the beta or when the early access will begin. They have released a video of all the dungeon intros. Same stuff from the beta, so some of you have played this already.
The dungeons are good. They are matchmade across all servers. There is no waiting. If you want to do a dungeon, you will get to do it. It's called Duty Finder, Google dat. I will be on the Final Fantasy XIV. I will be streaming. I will be on Malboro, join up with the Gouki LS. I will be rolling with TAW gaming for raids. Don't be a Jimmy!

I lay my entire plan on the table for the four day phase 4 beta test of Final Fantasy XIV. This character will carry over, so it's full-on! My Goal: level 20 MRD. Level 20 GLD. Additional Job abilities. GC, FG & Bird. Get ready to rail Early Access.
Okay so here’s the plan …
I want to get to endgame as a Warrior ASAP after release. I don’t want to play MRD full time at end game tho. I just figure there are going to be a lot of nuabs playing & I need to be in a leader’s role or I’m gonna die a lot. Plus it’s easier for tanks to get into Duty Finder & I’m familiar with MRD, since I played that in the beta. With that said …
Let me just clarify a few things. I was in phase 3 of the beta, so I will get access to phase 4 of the beta this coming Friday. August 16, 2013. I’m expecting it to kick off the same time the other phases started around 2AM. Yes, I will plan accordingly that day to be awake at 2AM, PWNn!
If you have an invite to phase 4, you can start playing on Saturday. Phase 4 is open beta, but if you did not apply earlier for it, you will have to register on Saturday & wait for an email. I have no further details on this. Don’t be so late next time. Don’t be a Jimmy!
Phase 4 of the beta is capped at level 20. So you should be able to get to a Grand Company & get your Chocobo. All of that stuff isn’t hard to miss, it’s part of the main story. Once you beat Ifrit, you’ll know. Okay since we can only get to level 20, there’s going to be a lot of free time to do other things in the game. When I first played, I got to level 18 in less than 2 days. I was doing a lot running around & side quests. Not this time. Fuck side quests. I’ll run around as an Arcanist at the end of phase 4 & do Jimmy ass side quests, if I’m bored.
Main goal #1. Get to Level 15 -> Get an Airship pass. The moment I land in Gridania, I hoof it over to the Conjurer’s guild & get my CNJ up to level 2, maybe level 8 depending on how long I think it will take. The reason for this is, CNJ unlocks Cure at level 2 & Protect at level 8. Having Cure would be nice, it’ll save me GIL on potions & I’ll just have another way to heal myself in battle. Can’t rely on the nubfarm.
At this point I may stick around Gridania & get a couple of more abilities, just so I have them & later on I can test out with different builds. For example:
Feint - Level 2 Lancer: Delivers an attack with a potency of 120.
Additional Effect: Slow +20%
Keen Fury - Level 4 Lancer: Increases parry rate by 20%.
Straight Shot - Level 2 Archer: Delivers an attack with a potency of 140.
Additional Effect: Increases critical hit rate by 10%
Raging Strikes - Level 4 Archer: Increases damage dealt by 20%.
Then it’s time to get the fuck outta Gridania. I sure will miss all of those green trees. If you continue the main story quest you should be on your way to Ul’Dah now. I believe after you complete the story quests here it will be time for your first dungeon. Since you can only get to level 20, I don’t think there is a super rush to keep going with your main right now. I’ll stop & get 1 more subjob ability while I’m here.
Second Wind - Level 8 Pugilist: Instantly restores 25% of maximum HP.
Thaumaturge moves are pretty worthless for MRD at this point. So I’ll skip that class all together right now. Second Wind from the PUG is huge for the MRD, restore 25% of my HP instantly? Yes, I need that. While playing MRD during phase 3, I would drop to low health in party without warning & very fast. This could send the CNJ in your party into a panic mode & he may not be able to heal you fast enough. Having stuff like Second Wind, Cure, & Hi-potions on you are going to save your life & keep your entire party alive.
What about Gladiator? You need GLD to get to Warrior with your MRD Jimmy. I know, I know. But at this point (again because of the level 20 cap) I don’t know how big of a deal it is to rush this down. Maybe level him up quick to get Flash, but you don’t need that. You should know how to control hate during battles without needing that skil. Still tho, if I think there’s time, I’ll do it.
Now I’m gonna finish the current storyline with my main job. Get to level 20, beat Ifrit, get to a GC & get my bird. So my MRD is now level 20, now what? Now I go back to Ul’Dah & get my GLD to 20.
No crafting or gathering during phase 4 for me. I only want class levels. After I get my MRD & GLD maxed out, I’ll decide what I want to do. I’ll probably want to fool around with Arcanist. I really want to be a Bard endgame, I love everything I hear about that job. Plus, I’ve always liked playing Archer. In Final Fantasy XI I was a healer, so I’m not too excited about doing that right away in this game. White Mage style anyway, I want to see how the Arcanist is set up. I love pets!
If all of this stuff comes to light & I can complete it by the end of phase 4, I think I’ll be off to a good start. I really want to craft & gather, but if I don’t get to endgame (lvl50) early & with my FC, I’m going to get left behind & I’m not having that. Don’t be a Jimmy!
I will be on Malboro for the Final Fantasy XIV. I will have a Gouki LinkShell. I will be rolling with TAW.net as my Free Company.
Let’s start coming up!
With the Electronic Entertainment Expo, E3, right around the corner, let’s start speculating about what we’re going to hear about our favorite developers from the press conference.
Sony Now, if Sony lets Kevin Butler and Jack Tretton talk on stage, it would be insane! I enjoy Sony for being the middle man in this. They want motion control with Move, and support the gaming community, but they always slip at the last minute. If you can recall from last year, they were going to announce the PSP Go with Gran Turismo, and Little Big Planet PSP but was leaked via their Core episode four days prior their showing! That wasn’t the best move on my behalf, and the screen shots that they are releasing for KillZone 3 are, in my opinion, dumb. Why not wait for E3 and reveal your games and show of to the other companies?! Maybe I don’t see the business side to it. What I hope to see at this year’s E3 is The Last Guaridan, Gran Turismo 5, Infamous 2 or Sly Cooper 4, Final Fantasy XIV, Metal Gear Solid; Raiden/Peace Walker, SOCOM 4, Little Big Planet 2, Kingdom Hearts 3/Birth by Sleep, and God of War; Ghost of Sparta. If they demonstrate like they did two years ago with Little Big Planet, and bring the same style with Little Big Planet 2, they’ll win for creativity. I’m also expecting some strong partnerships with their only rental service like cable, or maybe the PSP2!
Microsoft One of the heavy hitters at the last few E3s. With everyone jumping on the motion controls band wagon, Project Natal will be no exception. Natal will have half of the conference, right after they tell you how much their online blows everyone out of the water. Natal will be interesting. Maybe they’ll release a PSP/DS style handled. You can dream right? Come on, don’t you want to play Gears 3 standing? Waving your hands in the air? Which leads me to the games! Let’s see if they show some trailer/gameplay to Gears of War 3, Fable 3, Halo Reach, Natal and…. Wait, what else do they have?!? Naw, but I’m sure they’re going to gave a mention to the Zune, all three of you, and more Natal features. Zzzz…
P.S. Watch this video to see Kevin Butler, KB, make fun of Project Natal.
Nintendo Last but not least, Nintendo. Let’s hear that they have games this year too. Last year was a fantastic year, compared to the previous years, so this year, they better whip it out. With the new hardware already out of the bag, the DS3D will be the talk of the show. I would honestly like to see some software for Nintendo than anything else. Golden Sun DS, Kirby(for any Wii or DSi/3D), Zelda, Metriod: Other M, Pikmn 3, F-Zero, Kid Icarus, Pokemon Black & White, Sonic Colors, Star Fox, Epic Mickey and any crazy secret game they always do. I just hope that it won’t be a sleeper from two years ago.
Third Parties These developers whore themselves out and they make money on the games we will, and, buy. Not going to the specifics on which developers I want to see show off their junk, but more important the games. Call of Duty; Black Ops, Marvel Vs. CAPCOM 3, Batman; Arkham Asylum 2, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon; Future Solider, King of Fighter XIII, Dead Space 2, Crysis 2, Castlevania; Lord of Shadow, Star Wars(All 30 of them) Naruto; Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, and Rock Band 3.
I’m sure the games, demonstration and events will be a year to remember. After all, it’s the year to stroke your hands for real gameplay. Motion control style!
And KB once again.
