FFXIV Carpenter Guide
Carpenters are one of the most useful crafting-based classes found in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Why? Because of the large variety of useful weapons and tools they can create. Through carpentry players can craft bows, staves, polearms, shields & masks made of wood, and a fair amount of other weapons and armor pieces. This makes them especially useful to players using the Archer, Lancer, or Gladiator class.
Carpenters are also very handy for players that choose to take up crafting or gathering. How so? Well, they can whip up great fishing poles, clogs, spinning wheels, and even grinding wheels. These are all important tools used in the fishing, weaving, and goldsmithing crafts.
To begin your adventure in Eorzea as a carpenter you’ll need to speak with Corgg, the receptionist of the Carpenters Guild called The Oak Atrium, which can be found in New Gridania.

In order to make your way through the 50 levels within the Carpentry craft you’ll have to create a large variety of items and make sure you’re swapping out recipes for higher level ones as soon as you’re able to.

Carpenter Crafting Gear
Crafting gear includes pieces of armor and accessories that help to improve the quality, speed, or performance of the crafter. The primary tools of carpenters, saws and hammers, generally add to your vitality and dexterity attributes.
You can, however, use other pieces of gear that will have a more positive effect on the items you craft. Look for pieces that provide bonuses to the Craftmanship and Control stats for best results.
Both Craftmanship and Control directly affect the synthesis process of crafting. Having gear on with boosts to these stats will allow you to make more progress with each synthesis action, produce higher quality items, and increase the durability of any weapons, armor, or tools that you create.
