Welcome to the crafting classes guide of Final Fantasy XIV. There are currently eight crafting classes in the game, each with its own unique recipes and tools. Here, we introduce you to the different crafting classes, what they do, and their traits in Final Fantasy XIV.

 

Crafting Classes What They Do Traits
Blacksmith With its guild located in Limsa Lominsa, the Blacksmithing class makes equipment for multiple combat classes such as Pugilists/Monks, Marauders/Warriors, Machinists, and Gladiators/Paladins. Since they work with a lot of metal, players who take on Blacksmithing best also pick up the Miner gathering class.

Their guild is located in Limsa Lominsa.

Their tools are hammers and files.

Best paired with the Miner gathering class.

Carpenter Picked up in Girdania, this class can make furniture and a range of equipment for multiple classes. For example, they can make fishing rods for Fishers, shields for Gladiators/Paladins, masks for casters, and grinding wheels for Goldsmiths. Since they use a ton of wood, players who take on Carpenter should also pick up the Botanist gathering class.

Their guild is located in Gridania.

Their tools are saws and claw hammers.

Best paired with Botanist, as that class can gather wood to turn to lumber.

Goldsmith The Goldsmiths have their guild in Ul'dah, and they can create accessories for every class in the game, such as earrings and necklaces. They can also make weapons and gear for a wide range of classes like scepters for Thaumaturges/Black Mages, hora for Pugilists/Monks, and needles for Weavers. Like Blacksmiths, Goldsmiths is best paired with the Mining gathering class.

Their guild is located in Ul'dah.

Their tools are hammers and grinding wheels.

Leatherworker Located in Girdania, the Leatherworker's guild makes accessories, clothes, certain weapons, and furniture. They are actually best paired with the Weaver crafting class as their recipes often overlap.

Their guild is located in Gridania.

Their tools are knives and awls.

Best paired with a couple of other crafting and gathering classes, such as Botanist and Weaver.

Weaver Weaver can be picked up in Ul'dah, and they can make a ton of wearable items for all kinds of classes. They can craft clothes such as robes, shirts, ribbons, bardings, and pants.

Their guild is located in Ul-dah.

Their tools are needles and spinning wheels.

They are best paired with Botanists, as they can gather cotton to turn into cloth.

Armorer Not to be confused with Blacksmith, Armorers have their guild also located in Limsa Lominsa. Their recipes cover more classes than Blacksmith, making frying pans for Culinarians, heavy shields for Gladiators/Paladins, bucklers for casters, and alembics for Alchemists.

Their guild is located in Limsa Lominsa.

Their tools are a hammer and pliers.

Best paired with Miner for recipe ingredients.

Culinarian Known to be the most difficult crafting class, Culinarian can be picked up in Limsa Lominsa. They make food that can give buffs to players for a certain amount of time. Unlike other classes, they do not craft any equipment. They are best paired with the Fisher gathering class.

Their guild is located in Limsa Lominsa.

Their tools are a skillet and culinary knife.

Most useful at the highest level because higher-quality food is sought out by players that participate in high-stakes raids.

Alchemist The Alchemist class can be picked up in Ul'dah. Like Culinarian, they can make consumables (but they are potions rather than food). Additionally, they can craft wands for Conjurers/White Mages and books for Arcanists/Summoners/Scholars.

Their guild is in Ul'dah.

The tools they use are alembics and mortars.

Best paired with Botanist to collect needed ingredients.


Many levels up their crafting classes to make Final Fantasy XIV Gil, furniture, and equipment. Some craftable items are more successful than others in making Gil, and others can craft much more desirable items for players. How about you? Which crafting class do you want to level up? Or will you level up all 8 crafting classes?
