This is a guide for Gil farming in Final Fantasy XV. Read on to learn about the efficient and quick methods of earning Gil!

Justice Monsters Five

The most efficient way to earn Gil is by selling Wind-up Lord Vexxos, a prize that can be won by playing Justice Monsters Five (10,000 Gil) in Altissa.

Wind-up Lord Vexxos is the top prize (99 chests) so it may take some time to get it but it will sure be worth the effort and Gil as selling each will net you 500,000 Gil.

Best and Worst Treasure Items to Sell

Fishing

You can also earn gil through fishing by catching a Platinum Myrltrout from Myrlwood Falls and obtaining a Platinum Myrltrout Fillet from each catch.

Preparing to Earn Gil by Fishing

Before heading out to fish for Platinum Myrltrouts, unlock the Expert Item Angler ascension ability (555 AP) first from the Exploration Astralsphere. This will triple the items that you get from fishing.

Since each Platinum Myrltrout Fillet sells for 1,950 Gil, you can earn a total of 5,850 Gil for each Platinum Myrltrout that you catch with the Expert Item Angler ability.

Necessary Fishing Equipment

Rod Death Spin
Reel Nereid
Lure
(◎) Big Blaze Bahamut
(○) Gemlight: Caster Carbuncle
(△) Whiskers: Crystal

These fishing equipments are recommended so you can catch Platinum Myrltrouts without so much difficulty. Big Blaze Bahamut is the most recommended lure among the three.

Platinum Myrltrout

The table below shows the basic information of the Platinum Myrltrout. If the marker does not appear on the minimap, try again in a different time of the day.

You can also setup a camp at the haven near the fishing spot.

Appearance Time Early morning to evening (17:59)
Location Myrlwood Falls
Marker Yellow (◎)

Bounty Hunting

Bounty rewards

Bounty hunting also gives a lot of Gil in addition to useful items.

This method involves combat and would be more difficult than the ones above, though, so be prepared.

      Hi! Thank you for your question :)
      Noctis needs to sneak behind the Black Chocobo until Ignis distracts it. The player should keep the chocobo inside his field of view to see if it is looking around, if so, Noctis needs to duck (hold square). Keep on doing this while also moving towards the chocobo until Ignis distracts it. While it is distracted, pick up the glasses then run away before the timer ends.
