    so all the expeditions all the ability awakenings I'm in dire need of gill.

    So what's the best way to make gill? I can free friend summon and then awaken them to level 3 sell them off, or should I just pile all the cactuars into this spare Yshtola I have? Not sure which is the most efficient way to turn cactuars into gill. I don't have any little cactuars (they were filling up too much space) just have Metal Gigantuars and King Metal Minituars. I know it's a waste to use a metal gigantuar on a level 1 unit, only takes somewhere between 3 and 11k to level up a freebie unit to 2* and a gigantuar has 30k so you're wasting 20k experience that way. so maybe throw out all the free units except for those that summon as level 3 and turn them into max level 3? That takes about 70k experience then not wasting as much cactuar experience?

    I've got to make gill! So broke. Don't tell me to do explorations, I'd rather suffer and be broke than go on another exploration.

    I don't "sell EXP" but here are 2 ways that already worked fine for me during specific events :
    - at the beginning of each fight use Pilfer from Paul (freebie unit) level 34 or above, it multiplies the gil received after a fight by 3 or 4. It's useful only if the fights are already significantly rewarding. I did it during a grinding event a few weeks ago and I calculated I made 200 000 additional gils per day. I don't know if it works well for the current KM event, I haven't tried.
    - during raids you receive a specific currency that can be exchanged for all kind of stuff ; but you can also sell this currency. During the Shadow Lord raid I exchanged 75% and sold 25%, I made like 15 millions gils with this.

    If you are that desperate,
    1. open up the gil chamber in vortex
    2. sell useless units
    3. sell 100% TMR units.

    this:
    4. gil pilfer each fight
    5. sell raid currency

    this:
    6. sell leveled fp units

    (Optional)
    7. use you arena medals and do arena summons
    8. sell useless/craftable gears and abilities
    9. sell extra materials (best way to get them is to TM farm)

    Honestly if you think explorations are work so is loading exp on friend units to sell. We will likely get Ariana raid this week which should have gil snappers as usually so I would just wait.

    FP summon units + Chamber of EXP.
    ADV for 1* units, and PRO for 2* units. All 3* units aren't worth the NRG so I just sold them as they were.
    When I experienced bankruptcy this is what helped me.

    And yea, about your Gigantuars and whatnot, maybe to level up some stuff to have to send for expeditions?

    I try to max out every unit so I have maxed backups for new expeditions.

    Also, once Gumi finally fixes it, there are a few units that can double your gil during a run, those are Paul, Montana (both FP units) and more recently Pirate Jake, that + Waylay is a great way to maximise your gil for menial things like KM grinding, story missions etc.

    I really hope they fix the gil hunting thing asap! >_<

    Wait for the gil snappers event, go to the cave and kill every gil snapper family in the place for like about 1000 lapis grinding.
    Sell the corpses.
    Benefit.

    The Ariana raid is here! Raids have so far been the best way to make money. The 2 tricks I wrote worked well during the last raid, let's hope this one won't be different.

    I do Bahamut explorations with Xon and Pirate Jake on my team, add 2 AOE chainers, 1 healer and 1 MP recovery.

    Waylay every battle and you can get a lot of spare materials and Gil. But it is a grind so you gotta have spare time for this

    Note that Jake's powers of gill doubling are currently bugged; confirmed by CS. Still waiting for a fix. I made a thread about it.
