Components used by other crafting classes
What classes should be Carpenters?
Lancers (Dragoon), and Archers (Bard) benefit most from being a Carpenter. Carpentry is pretty narrow for non-conjurers, but they do craft many important pieces (9 arms-type gear). Lumber is also used by a lot of other crafting classes.
Again, every crafting class benefits / relies on other crafting classes for components, so it’s never truly useless to train Carpentry (or all crafting classes)
Every Crafting (Disciple of Hand) shares a large pool of skills, four of which are unique to each class. Below are the Carpentry only skills.
|Rumination||15||Free||Removes inner quiet effect and resotres CP proportional to the number of times control was increased.|
|Brand Of Wind||37||15 CP||Increases progress. Progress doubles when recipe affinity is Wind.
Success Rate: 90%
|Byregot's Blessing||50||24 CP||Increases Quality.
Efficiency: 100% plus 20% for each bonus to control granted by Inner Quiet
Success Rate: 70%
|Name Of The Wind||54||15 CP||For the next five steps, Brand of Wind efficiency is increased. Increase determined by current progress.
Only one Name of the Element action can be used per synthesis.
Carpenter Skill Discussion
Rumination: Very good. More CP is always good, because it keeps you going, and gives you more options. You’re almost always going to use Masters Mend after this.
Brand of Wind: Like any ‘brand’ skill, this is almost always better than any generic synthesis skill. As a cross-class skill, this of course depends on the element of the item you’re crafting. Use it if you the item you’re crafting is ice element. (Determined by shard used?)
Byregot’s Blessing: At 3 bonuses from inner quiet, this becomes the strongest quality raising skill. The best time to use this is obviously after you have stacked more than 3 bonuses from Inner Quiet. It starts getting bonkers after that.
All in all, the carpentry skill set is strong. Both unique skills revolve around inner quiet, and are very useful. They’re better off when crafting items with an extreme quality bar. Brand of Wind is, just like any brand, useful when applicable.
We suggest starting crafting by leveling all crafting classes to 15 at once.
