FFXIV Gil Guide Strategy:Raptor Skins and Sinew
Location: Path between Camp Overlook and the Floating City of Nym (right outside the east exit of Camp Overlook in Outer La Noscea)
Required Level: 35
Gil Per Hour: 55k (at 50)
Just east of Camp Overlook, there is a relatively short strip of land that contains 10 Velociraptors. While there are only about 10 of them in the entire camp, they respawn very quickly, so even at 50 and with great gear, you never run out of enemies to farm.
The Raptors are particularly good to farm because not only do they drop valuable items with big demand, but they drop these items at an extremely high drop rate. In particular, in this location we will be farming Raptor Skins and Raptor Sinew. Raptors can drop up to 3 Raptor Skins at a time as well as a single piece of sinew.
Both of these drops are valuable. On my server, a single Raptor skin is worth about 200 gil and a Raptor Sinew is worth 350 gil. I managed to find 31 skins and 19 sinew in just 15 minutes – or about 13k gil worth of items. When you factor in the price bonuses for HQ items and the couple of lightning crystals I snagged by killing nearby elementals as I farmed, I ended up netting close to 14k gil worth of items in just 15 minutes.
