Gray can tell you about it.
Not really 🙂 Everything was told already… in this topic. Crafting was nice during the first days of ShB – it made me some 3-5 mil daily (though not even close to 1-20 mil you promised before 😉 ); and that’s while having 200-250k of profit from every item sold! Right now it’s less than 100k per item, which I don’t consider worthy at all. So yes, much like in most other games: grinding and more grinding is way to go for a botter.July 20, 2019 at 8:11 pm #15670

That was mainly because of a major letdown from Square Enix. Usually since Heavensward they released craftable glowing primal weapons (they could’ve at least released the ARR and HW craftable weapons) for the new jobs which were the major gil earning machine, however with Shadowbringers they went full maximum laziness mode with that and didn’t implement ANY craftable primal weapons for the 2 new jobs, which made me extremely angry, since I already had stocked up on primal mats for this.
On Stormblood launch I crafted Ifrit Katanas, Ramuh Rapiers, Thordan Katanas, etc. and every single one of them sold for something like 5-20 million gil – and I managed to sell at least 2-3 per day.

The real money will come with the top tier craftable gear, probably 5.1. Can probably make 10-20+ mil a day on the aethersands + selling the crafted gear. I’m making 5-7m per day right now just selling the craftable gathering set.
I don’t think that gathering is more gil efficient as gray says. a stack of lignae logs is X price. 5 logs -> lumber is worth more than 5X, so theres profit(even considering crystal costs), and the further you take it the more profit there is.July 21, 2019 at 9:57 am #15689

Tbh, this is exactly the way I was earning my 3-5 mil/day before. Though, right now at our server mats for simple LTW/CRP items (i.e. w/o dwarven cotton) cost about 50k, while the item itself sells for 100-120k; items with cotton are sold at a loss for some reason. Maybe there is less competition at your server, but I don’t see any way to make 5 mil out of 50-70k profit sales. You aren’t going to sell 70-100 items per day, are you?
5 logs -> lumber is worth more than 5X
You forgot to include time into calculation… the time you spend a) crafting, b) putting on market, c) checking market and playing 1 gil game. For example, my main char right now makes about 1 mil every hour gathering, so its minute costs about 16k, which basically makes crafting packs of lumber / leather / nuggets / cotton not really worthwhile.July 21, 2019 at 3:43 pm #15699

Since I am leveling my crafters/gathering classes I am selling bluespirit tiles/ore and stiperstone for a decent price. The robber balls from yellow gatherer scrips are good for cash-flow as well. Stiperstone is selling for a shitload atm.
A lot of the “old” items are selling for quite a bit. Kudzu root, stiperstone.. mythrite sand.. are all selling for well over 2k each. BUT SHHHHHHHHHHHHHH MAH PROFITS!!
