Location: Qufim/Delkfurt Tower/Xarcabard

Target: Gigas

Suggested Level: 35+ For Qufim/Tower. 65+ For Xarcabard.

No point in doing this without /thf subjob. You will basically be farming Gil. Yes, Gigas drop close to 200gil a pop with Gilfinder and it adds up. I like Xarcabard a little more because they drop 200-300gil a pop.

I killed about a dozen of these in Xarc today as rdm/thf. Lowest gil drop I got was 70, highest 261 with most drops being around 170. If you can kill about 60 of these in an hour you'll make 10k.

I was in the tower a while ago as a 59 Sam/15 Thf. The kills take forever but I got an average of 125gil/kill. Good for when the other "Good" places are camped. Or when you are just bored and feeling killing something. Oh, and also all (I think) the Nms there drop Gigas Bracelets. 8K in Jeuno on the Alexander Server Atm. But don't sell too fast. So, I'd go here if I was just bored, or the other places where taken.

In Upper Delfutt's Tower(Tenth floor) I bring my 75PLD/15thf here to farm and I have to say there are so many ways to make money here. If you have a Delkfutt key bring it with you, if you dont then get one once you reach the top level. Basically what I do is start from the far west room and make my way east clearing the center room and stopping at the far east room killing all the giants just as the guide says (doing this usually gives around 1.5k+ gil). If you can kill them fast enough you can get them as they are respawning. Giants here drop keys to the chests, chests give anything from 2-4k gil or an Emeth pick that NPCs for almost 7k. Mimas, one of the NMs that spawn here drops a Greataxe that NPCs for almost 8k and respawns about 15mins after his last death (he is a timed spawned), drop rate is not too bad. 3 Magic pots spawn in the east side of the tower, they drop Magic pot shards and Mercury can be stacked, they also both can be put on the AH or NPCd for money on the spot. Shards have about 45% drop rate and mercury is about the same. They drop chest keys aswell. Also in the tower Thunder and the occasional Light elementals spawn meaning more profit and drop keys(sometime drop 2 clusters). Enkelados, another NM that spawns here drops Enkelados' barclets that go for 30k+ depending on server. His spawn time and conditions are kinda weird though, spawning in one of the rooms and respawning 5mins later in the opposite room(not garunteed to do this 100% of the time). Also has a pretty low drop rate 1/20+. If you ever run out of giants or are close to finishing a stack of Shardsmercury you can go through the teleporter and there is another pot there and more giants around the corner, by the time you kill these the giants through the teleporter will have respawned. Usually I find myself alone up here but occasionally others come up and create problems with giants respawn times but its not too big of a deal really.
A way to make this better is to bring a DD gear (go Joyeuse!) and if Alchemy is high enough you can make cermet chunks with the pot shards you farm here.

Well this how I farm in Upper Delkfutt tower, hope this helps for ppl who are looking to farm.

Ghostofonyx has it exactly correct. I do exactly what he said as my DRK63/THF17 and make really good gil, as long as I am the only one up there. Usually I find at least one other person farming here when I go up, but it's not that big of a can always go through the teleporter and farm the gigas below.

If you have a Lv. 75 THF, or have another job at 75 and are able to sub /THF, you can go to the highest level of Upper Delkfutt's Tower and kill the "Jotunn" Gigas mobs up there. Not only do they drop a nice amount of gil, they also drop Gigas Socks, which are a pretty common drop (about 45-50%) and on Ramuh AH sell for 1k each. Also, if you have Clothcraft leveled, the Gigas Socks can be De-Synthesised into Wool Thread for an even greater profit. However, these Jotunn mobs can also drop Alkyoneus and Pallas pop items, with the possibility of getting their respective bracelets to drop. Both of which sell for a very nice chunk of change at Auction due to their rarity, so don't get discouraged if you pop and kill NM and don't get drop. The main cash is coming from the killing of Gigas and the AH sales of the socks and/or desynthesis/selling of Wool Thread stacks.

when using FoV (page 4) you can gain gil, exp, and tabs.

I often camp the upper two levels of Delk. Tower on my 75 thf. With gilfinder the mobs drop ~250gil each which adds up to usually around 11k or so when im up there, but i primarily go for alky and pallas bracelets. The "Jotunn" gigas drop the pop items but the drop rate on the nms is rough with th4. Both Pallas and Alkyoneus can be soloed with ease as 75THF/NIN.
