Mimic + Gillionaire in Omega Ruins, but you said not there... so there's the Kilika armour method, but cannot remember it myself --- Support Extra Life! extralife.sarcasticgamer.com Help kids around the world by playing games, where's the bad side?
Pilfer Gil/ Nab Gil Most enemies give you a few hundred gil, some even less than that. It might have been useful early in the game if it wasn’t so awkwardly located on the sphere grid, but as it is, its not a good method at all.
Epaaj (before airship): Fight outside the sunken cave, you will encounter them every fight. They’re not hard to beat, and the only other monsters you will encounter are machina (steal from them). Epaaj sometimes drop SOS overdrive weapons, which sell for up to 75,187 gil depending on the number of empty slots. They can also drop tetra armour, which can be customized for cash. BTW, if you have nab/pilfer gil, Epaaj usually hand over 600 gil or so on average.
Once you have the airship, these methods are much better:
Customisation: go to Kilika shop, buy tetra armour for 2250 gil. Customise and sell.
Examples: Capture the monsters in Besaid. Monster arena guy gives you 99x stamina tonic. Go to Kilika, buy tetra armour for 2250 gil. Customise with HP+30% (1x stamina tonic) and sell for 28406 gil each. Profit= 2.5 million gil. Similarly, capture insects for 60x mana tonic. Customise MP+30%, sell for 34031 gil. Profit =1.9 million gil. Or capture mushrooms for 99x healing spring. Customise SOS regen (12x healing spring, 37781 gil). Profit= 284248 gil.
Customise with:_____Item(s) required_________Sell for: HP+30%___________1x Stamina Tonic_________28406gil MP+30%___________1x Mana Tonic___________34031gil SOS Regen_________12x Healing Spring________37781gil
Alternatively, buy weapons from Kilika at 1875 gil:
Customise with:_____Item(s) required_________Sell for: Evade & Counter_____1x Teleport Sphere_______27812 gil
Get more items for customisation: Item___________Overkill___________Capture___________Steal (*rare steal) Stamina tonic____Abyss worm (2)_____Besaid (99)________Machea*(1), Dark Yojimbo (2) Mana tonic______Malboro menace (4)__Insects (60)________Great Malboro*(1) Healing spring___Kottos (40)_________Mushrooms (99)____Achelous*(1), Behemoth King (1) Teleport Sphere__Sleep Sprout (2)_____N/A______________Th’uban*(1)
The best repeatable option for customization is farming Kottos for Healing Springs, assuming you are strong enough to overkill him quickly, preferably with a single overdrive. This method can generate 6,000,000 gil in 1 hour.
If all that seems like too much trouble, try these:
Monster arena: All monster arena creations always drop equipment when defeated, many of which can be sold for decent amounts of cash. Example: Kill One-Eye in the arena (capture flying eyeballs to unlock). Sell any unwanted triple AP weapons he drops. You can earn over 3,000,000 gil per hour with this method.
Gillionaire: Get double gil when you win a fight. Get Rikku's Godhand fully powered or customise with 30x designer wallet. (Designer wallet: Capture omega ruins fiends for 60, or steal from Don Tonberry using master thief). The character with Gillionaire must be in the front line when the monster is killed. This is very useful against mimics in the omega dungeon.
Mimics: In the Omega Ruins, you will frequently encounter a Zaurus and a treasure chest. Steal (not mug) from the treasure chest for a chance to fight a mimic, then kill it for 50,000gil (100,000gil with gillionaire). Use Auron’s Shooting Star to defeat a mimic easily. BTW, since you’re in the Omega Ruins anyway, remember that Machea and Great Malboro’s rare steals are useful for customisation, so use [Master Thief] to grab some.
Money, it's a gas. Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash.
