So I've been playing FFXI about a month and a half. I've dabbled in most of the classes (and I still do) and play whatever I feel like or what could be used to help some others level up.
Anyway, thoughout all of this I amassed 130k at a point in time. Now I'm throwing it all away at a wedding and dress combo. That is, if the application ever goes though.
Now, I'm sitting on 150k for pocket change but... I do wonder what I could of done with 270k.
The wedding isn't love or anything, either. It's two people having fun. (And annoying anyone in emote range ^^) And, we all know, getting married offers the couple nothing excpet less mog house space due to a ring that you'll never wear except when you're not doing anything. (Unless you're quirky like me ^^; )
Also, throwing gil away is a common practice for me. I give away the things I use for cooking skillups before I sell to NPCs (hey, I only have 7 AH spaces) I give away gear to people when I don't need it. I give away unwanted crop results to LS members who can use them - and ask for nothing in return. And tonight I'm going fishing to get skill ups for myself, and moat carp for a friend. I give wind crystals to the LS bonecrafter, fire crystals to the LS goldsmith, and I get their water crystals in exchange. I also Raise for free and plan to tele for free as well.
Am I too nice? Is this why I'm so poor? (not even 300k in 2 months of playing I mean) Am I being stupid? What do you all think?
