Is is safe to buy ffxiv gil?
If you ever see people gathering and seemingly teleporting from point to point, you've found yourself a bot.
They gather stuff, sell it, then sell off that gil, alongside the ffxiv gil of highjacked (often phished) accounts.
Square have already commented on the issue so they're likely aware of them. As for why the bans are on a delay, I don't know exact reasons.
I'm usually neutral with these kind of topics, but I want to ask something:
Person A buys gil, he has gil now. Person B sold items on the Board or to NPCs, he has gil now. If Person A buys gil via RMT, how exactly is he a bad person, especially if this is his only game and he's "investing"?
