    I. Introduction
    This history of this guide is actually an interesting one.  It started as 
    a post on the PlayOnline Message Board, yet with the help of several experts 
    on the site, it grew to be a very helpful guide.  It started by people looking 
    for ways to make quick gil in the game, which got many of us thinking about 
    how the sell prices of equipment were determined.  After a bit of math magic, 
    we were able to punch out a few formulas.  So, using the info in this guide, 
    it's possible to become relatively rich as sas you reach Guadosalam.
    1.3: 03/08/02: Decided to change the format of the guide.  Added Monster Arena 
    Requirements for unlocking Creations.
    1.2: 03/08/02: Sent this guide to Neoseeker.
    1.1: 03/07/02: Proofread this thing several times, fixed some mistakes and 
    made a few things I said easier to understand.
    1.0: 03/06/02: Placed Auto-Abilities List, Selling prices, and Gil tricks 
    all into one file.
    II.  Selling equipments with Auto-Abilities
    "My math teacher was right!! You DO need math to survive!!!" - Feonor of the 
    PlayOnline Message Board.
    This took a bit of thinking, but we managed to uncover the means in which 
    the game determines the selling price of equipment.  It all has to due with 
    averages.  Combine the value of each attribute and of each empty slot, throw 
    in certain preset values... Well, I'll let Squall6Cloud explain it.  He's 
    the one who did all the number crunching and cranked out the formulas.
    By Squall6Cloud of the PlayOnline Message Board:
    "Customized Weapon or armor pricing  
    Ability Price = (Price of 1-slot weapon or armor with that ability) - 12  
    Weamor= To simplify things I will call (Weapon or armor) Weamor from now on.  
    Basic Stuff  
    Price of Weamor with 1 Slot and 1 ability = Ability price + 12  
    Price of Weamor with 2 Slot and 1 ability= (Ability price x 1.5) + 18  
    Price of Weamor with 3 Slot and 1 ability= (Ability price x 4.5) + 56  
    Price of Weamor with 4 Slot and 1 ability= (Ability price x 15) + 187  
    Now for the interesting stuff:  
    You have 4-slot weamor with:  
    - 2 abilities:  
    Price of Weamor with 4 Slot and 2 abilities= ((Sum of ability prices on Weamor 
    * 15) + 187)/2  
    - 3 abilities:  
    Price of Weamor with 4 Slot and 3 abilities= ((Sum of ability prices on Weamor 
    * 15) + 187)/3  
    - 4 abilities:  
    Price of Weamor with 4 Slot and 4 abilities= ((Sum of ability prices on Weamor 
    * 15) + 187)/3  
    Calculating price of a 3-slot Weamor  
    - 2 abilities:  
    Price of Weamor with 3 Slot and 2 abilities= ((Sum of ability prices on Weamor 
    * 4.5) + 56)/1.5  
    - 3 abilities:  
    Price of Weamor with 3 Slot and 3 abilities= ((Sum of ability prices on Weamor 
    * 4.5) + 56)/1.5  
    And for the 2-slot 2 ability formula is:  
    Price of Weamor with 2 Slot and 2 abilities= (Sum of ability prices on 
    Weamor*1.5) + 18"
    If the stuff above was too much for some of you, to simplify it all:
    X = Ability Price
    S = Number of Slots
    A = Number of Abilities
    1S/1A = x+12  
    2S/2A = 1.5x+18  
    2S/2A = 1.5x +18  
    3S/1A = 4.5x+56  
    3S/2A = (4.5x+56 )/1.5  
    3S/3A = (4.5x+56)/1.5  
    4S/1A = 15x+187  
    4S/2A = (15x+187)/2  
    4S/3A = (15x+187)/3  
    4S/4A = (15x+187)/3
    Use Squall6Cloud's formulas and substitute X for the value corresponding with 
    each Auto-Ability.  If you have more than ONE ability, ADD them together as 
    the value for X.

    IV. Fast and east gil tricks.
    Heh, heh.  This is going to become one of your favorite FAQs because of this 
    section right here.  All this info on customizing can be used to get some 
    fast and easy gil.  The Monster Arena plays a major role in most of the methods, 
    and is accessible as soon as you reach the Calm Lands.  Square perhaps 
    purposely placed in such methods for the more wily gamers.  "You just gotta 
    know how to work it."
    Method 1: Mimics in the Omega Ruins
    This method is the most obvious, and it has the fewest requirements.
    Requires: Airship
    	Steal ability
    	Armor with Stoneproof (Optional, but highly recommended)
    	Weapon with First Strike (Also Optional, but recommended)
    	Weapon with Gillionaire (VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)
    First, you'll need to find the Omega Ruins.  The Omega Ruins are a hidden 
    location on the world map and is one of the better locations if you ever want 
    to beef up.  It's also the lair of Ultima and Omega Weapon, both are pathetic 
    bosses who don't pose much of a challenge at all.  You can Steal 99 Doors 
    to Tomorrow and Bribe 99 Pendulums for 1.4 gil from Ultima, and then have 
    Kimarhi use Lancet on Omega to learn the Nova Ronso Rage for his Overdrive.  
    But, that's not what we're really interested in.  
    The location of the Omega Ruins is around 70 X and 35 Y using the Airship 
    Search command.
    The fiends down here are tough.  Stoneproof is suggested in case you run into 
    Demonoliths, who have an instant Petrification Breath on all frontline 
    characters.  Play it save and have at least one frontline person with 
    Stoneproof on their armor.  As another safety precaution, I suggest First 
    Strike in case you come face to face with Great Marlboros.  Inside Sin, Great 
    Marlboros don't always ambush the party, however, when you battle them in 
    the Omega Ruins the Ambush rate is close to 100%.  Give someone who can take 
    them out First Strike on a weapon.  This will allow you to take an action 
    before the Great Marlboro can use Bad Breath.  You can create a Wind Rod for 
    Yuna and have her summon an Aeon to take the hit.  Another method is giving 
    First Strike with someone who knows Provoke.  By using Provoke, the fiend 
    will squirt something out from somewhere near it's eyes for small damage 
    instead of hitting everyone with status ailments.  If your characters are 
    pretty strong, give First Strike to someone who can take them out with one 
    shot.  If Auron has his Masamune activated with the Mars crest and sigil, 
    First Strike is already on that weapon.
    You'll absolutely need the Steal ability.  Mug won't work.  What you're 
    looking for are treasure chests.  They have only 1HP, so using Mug will inflict 
    damage and destroy the chest altogether while Steal will allow you to 
    effectively open the chest.  In some cases, you'll gain a regular item from 
    the chest, which is okay, but most times the chest will have "Nothing to 
    steal."  When you get this message, it means you've found a Mimic.  These 
    fiends will burst up from the treasure chests as dark spirits.  There are 
    four types with different HP.  Yet all four types will drop 50,000 gil if 
    you manage to kill them.  If you have Gillionaire on a weapon and that 
    character participates in the battle, the amount will be doubled.  I suggest 
    activating Rikku's Godhand, which already has Gillionaire on it.  Remember 
    also, you MUST open the treasure chest before eliminating all other fiends 
    or the battle win end prematurely.
    Method 2: "Golden-One-Eye"
    This method was first figured out by Squall6Cloud of the PlayOnline Message 
    Board.  It's for the more advanced players since One-Eye can be a little hard 
    to beat if you're not strong enough.  Actually, even with high stats, One-Eye 
    can ambush the party and knock everyone out with his Shockwave attack, which 
    inflicts Sleep, Confuse and Silence all at once.  Yet once you get past that, 
    he's very easy.
    Requirements: Unlock One-Eye by capturing at least 4 of each flying 
       eyeball species: Floating Eye (Mi'ihen Highroad)
          Buer (Thunder Plains)
          Evil Eye (Macalania Snowfield)
          Ahriman (Mt. Gagazet or Inside Sin)
          Floating Death (Omega Ruins)
       8000 gil to fight One-Eye
       Pretty beefed-up characters.  HP around 9999, Agility near 90.
       Celestial Weapons are suggested.
       Armor with Sleepproof and Confuseproof-optional.  Don't bother if you 
    think you're strong enough. 
    "how to make between 335k-1.1mill in 10min 
    1- You need to do over 50,000 per hit.  
    2- Quick hit helps, on all characters.  
    3- You need to have released One Eye in monster arena.  
    What to do:  
    Fight One eye. Do quick hit with everyone. If everyone does over 50k, that 
    means he is dead in 3 hits. I tested within 10 minute time period. You get 
    to fight him about 18 times. That means the cost is 144,000. However after 
    selling all the equipment he drops, you will make an average of 479,764. Or 
    a max of 1,216,008. Take the cost of 144,000 out of it and that means in 10 
    minutes you can make on average 335,764 and max 1,072,008 coins."
    First purchase Capture weapons from the man at the Monster Arena and capture 
    the necessary fiends.  Then return to the Arena with at least 8000+ gil.  Save 
    at the sphere if you so wish.  Choose to battle One-Eye from the Species 
    Hopefully, you won't get ambushed.  One-Eye is actually one of the easiest 
    Bosses of the Arena.  He only has 150000 HP, so he'll go down in a few hits 
    of 99999 from your characters.  Once you get past his Shockwave attack, 
    One-Eye is a pushover.  If you continually have problems with ambushes, I 
    suggest First Strike on a weapon for Yuna so she can call an Aeon.
    After the battle, you'll see why this method works.  As items, he'll drop 
    Dark Matters as a rare item, 1 for a regular kill and 2 for an Overkill (15000 
    damage).  For common items, he'll drop Magic Defense spheres, 1 for a regular 
    kill, 2 for an Overkill.  The Dark Matters can be sold for 7500 gil each!  
    But, that's not the best part.  He'll also drop equipment.  Armor will come 
    with MP+% while Weapons will come with Triple AP.  These Triple AP weapons 
    will sell for 15000+ gil!!!  Keep fighting him until your satisfied and sell 
    all the weapons and armor he dropped for big bucks!
    Method 3: Regen-erate your profit!
    Similar to #2, this method relies on the Monster Arena.  This was discovered 
    by Evandownie of the PlayOnline Message Board.  This method takes a bit more 
    work as far as customizing, but it's very fast with strong characters.  Also, 
    if you have weak characters who aren't strong enough for Omega Ruins, this 
    is the best way to go.
    Requirements: Unlock Kottos by capturing at least 1 of each fiend on Mi'ihen 
       6000 gil to fight Kottos
    Here's evandownie's original post:
    "how to make between 697338 and 940566 gil in 15 minutes. 
    I dont know if this particular strategy has been posted before, but here it 
    is anyways. Thanks to every1 who worked on the prices for items in that post, 
    i cant find it right now. It was mentioned by llew that the price for a 4 
    slotted armor with auto regen is worth 225187, so its worth buying tetra 
    armors, as you still make a profit. This has a better average profit than 
    the One eye method, but if yer really lucky one eye is still better.  
    So, to put auto-regen on an armor, it requires 80 healing springs, and the 
    cheapest place to get them is Kottos in the monster arena, as he drops 40 
    if u overkill him.
    In 15 minutes, i fought him 12 times, giving me 480 healing springs total, 
    or 6 regen armors worth 225187 gil each.  
    12 x 6000 (cost of fighting Kottos) = 72 000  
    6 x 100000 (tetra armors) = 600 000  
    6 x 225187 = 1351122  
    so the profit from the tetras is Sale - Costs (1351122 - 672000 = 679122)  
    The extra bit of money comes in from the items you recieve, which ranged from 
    1518 gil to 21787 gil.  
    1518 x 12 = 18216  
    21787 x 12 = 261444  
    so we get between 697336 gil and 940566 gil from all this."
    3a. If your characters are rather weak, it might be hard to kill Kottos, but 
    the method will still work.  Here's what you'll need:
       2 Characters with Protect and curative spells.
       Auron with Sentinel or Guard Ability as well as a weapon with Counterattack 
    or Evade and Counter.  If you can't find one, they can be customized with 
    a Friend or Teleport Sphere. If you can't customize one, fight Bashuras. 
    They're those ugly purple ape-looking things. They can be found in the Calm 
    Lands or on Mt. Gagazet.
    Enter a battle with Kottos with Auron and your 2 White magic users in the 
    frontline.  Auron should have the countering weapon already equipped.  Have 
    him use Sentinel (or Guard if you don't have Sentinel yet). Have the other 
    two members cast Protect on him and maybe Regen.  Just do everything you can 
    to keep Auron alive.  Now just wait for Kotto's turn to come up by pressing 
    Triangle, but don't deactivate Sentinel. 
    With Sentinel activated, Kottos will hit Auron no matter who was orginally 
    targeted.  Hopefully Auron is strong enough to survive the hit, and he'll 
    counterattack. Have the healers cast curative magic and heal up Auron. 
    Reactivate Sentinel and keep countering until Kottos falls.  The prizes are 
    now yours for the taking.
    3b.  After so much fighting with One-Eye and Kottos, you'll probably have 
    some extra weapons lying around.  Here's a way to get the most of of extra 
    weapons.  For this to work, you need to have at least one character who can 
    consistently deal 99999 damage. If you don't have this, then customize a 
    weapon with First Strike for Yuna using 6 Chocobo Feathers and place her in 
    the frontline.  
    Now enter a battle with Sleep Sprout, which is unlocked after capturing 5 
    of each funguar species.  
    Funguar on Mushroom Rock Road or southern Djose Highroad 
    Thorn in the Cavern of the Stolen Fayth  
    Exoray Inside Sin.  
    Overkill him with 99999 damage.  Celestial Weapons seem to work best in 
    dealing 99999 while Customized weapons might come short.  If your using Yuna, 
    have her summon an Aeon who will be able to take him down.  
    You'll win either 2 Dark Matters as a rare item or 2 Teleport Spheres. Use 
    the Teleport Spheres to customize Evade and Counter onto spare weapons. This 
    attribute alone on a weapon will add 5500 gil to the selling price!
    . Frequently Asked Questions
    1. Where can I get No Encounters?
    - The best way to get No Encounters is to first forget about collecting 30 
    Purifying Salts.  There are several fiends that drop equipment with No 
    Encounters already customed.  Ghosts can be found in the Cavern of the Stolen 
    Fayth, the cave where you meet Yojimbo.  Demonoliths hang out Inside Sin and 
    around the Omega Ruins.  Finally, Geosgaeno, that HUGE fish that almost 
    swallowed Tidus whole at the beginning of the game is waiting for you at Baaj 
    Temple.  Out of the three, Ghosts are the easiest to kill.
    2. I don't understand what the Monster Arena is you keep mentioning.
    - The Monster Arena is on the far right side of the Calm Lands.  You should 
    see a notch in the cliff with light shining from it.  Or you could just look 
    on your map and look for the green dot.  In order to Capture a fiend, the 
    deathblow must be dealt with someone equipped with a weapon with the Capture 
    ability.  These weapons can only be bought at the Monster Arena.  After 
    Capturing several monsters, you may unlock other creations in the Arena.  For 
    more info, see CB!'s FAQ on the Monster Arena.  
    3. I just started a game and looked in the menu, but I can't customize 
    - The ability to Customize comes after Rikku joins you on the Moonflow and 
    she teaches you in Guadosalam.  It's about 1/4 through the game.
    4. What does this ability do?
    - A complete list of Auto-Abilities and their function is available at all 
    times in the Menu screen.  First enter the Menu, and then select Help at the 
    bottom.  I might add in descriptions in a later version.  For more info, check 
    out CB!'s guide.  
    5. I've heard about Celestial Weapons.  Where can I find Legendary Armor?
    - There is no such thing as "Legendary Armor."  Perhaps this is because 
    different armor is better in certain situations.  Consider these examples 
    of "Legendary Armor:"
      ELEMENTAL - Fire Eater/Ice Eater/Water Eater/Lightning Eater
      STATUS AILMENTS - Deathproof/Stoneproof/Confuseproof/Berserkproof
      FIGHTERS - Break HP Limit/Auto-Haste/Auto-Protect or Auto-Regen or HP 
    Stroll/Auto-Phoenix or Auto-Med
      WIZARDS - Break HP Limit/Auto-Haste/Break MP Limit or MP 
    Stroll/Auto-Phoenix or Auto-Med
      THIEVES - Break HP Limit/Auto-Haste/Master Thief or 
    Pickpocket/Auto-Phoenix or Auto-Med
