Solo Gil farming in FFXIV is not only a profitable endeavor but can also be a lot of fun. The choice of method depends on your playstyle and preferences. If you enjoy exploring different aspects of the game, deep dungeons, Eureka, and variant dungeons are great choices. However, for more reliable and less RNG-dependent earnings, you can turn to Grand Company seal farming and solo treasure maps. Experiment with these methods to find the ones that suit your style and watch your Gil pile grow.
