Make FFXIV Gil by Splendorous Crystalline Fishing Rod
Final Fantasy XIV patch 6.35 brings with it the opportunity to upgrade your gathering tools to the Splendorous variety. The Splendorous tools offer some added abilities that make it worth the effort to upgrade them. In this guide, LOLTANK will discuss the stats, requirements, and how to upgrade your tools to Splendorous levels.
The Splendorous Crystalline Fishing Rod offers a chance to reduce the cost of a powerful hookset and precision hookset by 50. This can save you a lot of FFXIV Gil over time, even if it's just the occasional 25 Gil reduction. The Splendorous Botanist and Miner tools offer a 20% increase in the chance of activating Collector's Intuition whenever you're gathering collectibles. This makes it much easier to farm collectibles and should result in more procs of Collector's Intuition.
In order to get the Splendorous tools, you'll need to purchase them from Quiana in exchange for 1500 White Scripts. She also sells select bait, which is required for the fishing upgrade quests. If you're low on White Scripts, you can also purchase select bait from the Market Board.
You'll also need to meet certain breakpoints in order to receive a gathering bonus. The perception bonus is helpful for gathering non-collectible items, and the Gil bonus is important for both collectible and non-collectible items. The best food choice for this bonus is the Jenga Curry, which provides a buff to gathering and a respectable buff to Gil. If you need food that helps you meet the Gil bonus, High-Quality Yakao Musaka provides the highest Gil increase in the game. You'll also need high Cordials to extend your food buffs.
Once you have the Splendorous tools, you'll need to gather the materials needed to upgrade them. These materials can be found in your gathering log. You'll need to use a Splendorous tool in order to gather them. You should focus on gathering the shards and crystals first, as they are hidden items. Use your yield bonuses to gather them, and then focus on the components. You have the option of using Luck of the Pioneer or Luck of the Mountaineer to reveal hidden items, but it isn't necessary. You're better off saving your Gil to use on job actions that increase the quantity.
You'll also need to catch certain fish in order to upgrade the Splendorous Fishing Rod. The locations for each fish can be determined by reading their descriptions, or by checking the description of the associated video. You'll need to use your Splendorous Rod, along with select bait. Make sure to turn on your Collector's Glove to maximize the collectibility of the fish you need. Use the job action Prize Catch to guarantee that the fish you catch is a large size, and you'll gain stacks of Angler's Art with each large-size fish you catch. After catching the fish, use Identical Cast right after Prize Catch to speed up the process. If you don't have enough Gil for both job actions, just use Prize Catch and wait until you have enough Gil to use both. You'll also need to use the job action Surface Lap occasionally, as some fish like to perform their own big fish impressions by not showing up after a while.
Upgrading to Splendorous tools is worth the effort, as they offer some valuable abilities that can make your gathering life easier. Make sure to take breaks and enjoy the grind, and have fun!
