Able to craft 5. Able to hit the Pick Clean 2 and Bountiful Yield 2 breakpoints with food. You can purchase primary and secondary tools from Vernarth. You can purchase left side gear from Doddard. You can either purchase them from the market board:. You will need Craftsmanship, Control, and CP after food. Next, you will want to craft your own initial Lv 80 set.
To do so, acquire the materials on this Teamcraft list first:. Then, use Blood Bouillabaisse NQ and craft the final products with this macro. Note: You do not need HQ materials. You can verify whether your stats work with this macro in the simulator here:. You have many ways of acquiring these materias. One way is to use yellow scrips to purchase them.
To do so, you will need crafter yellow scrips. This can be easily acquired with two weeks of custom deliveries. If you wish to get this over with sooner, you can turn in collectables with the collectable appraiser. You can also acquire these materias from the market board. It is not unusual for a lower tier materia to be pricier than the higher tier materia.
We will need more yellow scrips later, and it will be non-optional, so it can be a good idea to use some gil to save the yellow scrips for later. You can skip this step if you already have the Weaver specialist, or have Craftsmanship, Control, CP before food on Weaver.
Then talk to Alderan to acquire your Weaver specialization and a Soul of the Weaver. You can optionally do this for Alchemist and Blacksmith too if you wish it is worth it if you are getting the free specializations from Alderan for the first time; otherwise it may not be worth the time to get yellow scrips. It will make the following steps a bit easier.
If you already have the master recipes, good! We can get the rest later. If you are not in a rush, you can casually get these master recipes from custom deliveries scrips. Do you want to gear up your crafter? Or both crafter and gatherer? If you only want to gear up crafters, follow this list instead:.Note: 5. You may find some of the information here irrelevant or confusing if you have not reached the endgame yet! The primary attraction of Patch 5. The latter is of more interest to crafters and gatherers, as with the Savage raid, Square Enix always introduces crafted gear for savage raiders to get to the minimum item level quickly in order to progress through the raids.
The new recipes for those crafted gear are 2-starrecipe level The recipes require legendary folklore materialswhich must be gathered with gatherers that have unlocked Norvrandt Folklore.
They also require the new Aethersandswhich is optimally acquired from aetherial reduction. Rotations for gathering and crafting have also shifted dramatically in this expansion, especially for gathering. In the 5. Read them carefully and ensure that you have enough stats for them. Note that low meld sets offer a drawback in that they may not be futureproof.
Furthermore, low meld sets may not be able to utilize the new macros. The new tier of crafted recipes come into two main variants. Intermediates have progress and quality. Final crafts have progress and quality. Because the new expansion has probably attracted new crafters who are entering endgame for the first time, I will also explain some of the mechanics at play here, such as how to farm aethersands and the various means of acquiring scrips.
Veteran crafters should use the Contents section to skip to relevant parts if they already understand them. Without them this guide would not have been possible, especially seeing as they have come up with some of the most advanced rotations I have seen.
Please join The Balance and join the crafter and gatherer channels if you are interested in more or have any questions. If you are interested in a general crafting guide, you can check out the old Google Docs guide.
Many of its details remain relevant. An updated guide is in the works but will not likely be up immediately. In the meantime read the old guide or come on the Balance.

Level up Botany Quickly 01 to 80! Recommended Leves? Botany Quests Items? Stop wasting time! Power Level your Botanist! Ready to bully the Ishgardian plants as Botanist huh? Also, the materials seem to be more useful, whatever you decide to farm as botanist. Well, lets go! You can access a new Botany node in Coerthas Western Highlands, but the loot you get is somewhat useless it does have a high material level, so if your gear is up to snuff you can grind on these.
Hell, you can even do the Botany Levequests in Ishgard! Let me put it in simpler terms: Your Botanist can get hundreds and thousands of EXP per unspoiled collectible Botany node.
So how does this work? How to check what you need? Perception increases collectability. Each appraisal and collect reduces node HP. Do not bother with collectibles if you have less than GP. Use food if you have to. In old times, leveling Botanist, it was all about the levequests. Sweet, sweet nodes of sweet EXP.Gathering Rotation and Macro for Collectibles and Ephemeral Nodes Part One FFXIV Shadowbringers 5.0
Botany 50 to 51 quick notes:. So apply any notes I have on regular levequests to these, too.
FFXIV Gathering Rotation (Scrip farming & Collectibles)
Generally speaking, Temple leves are very time efficient, but levequest allowance inefficient. They may reward 4x? Not that ideal for leveling your Botanist, but ideal when using up leves fast to prevent getting over Are you still using Rauni? Do yourself a favor and buy yourself a Mythrite Hatchet. Stick a bit of materia in.
GG pre 3. LEVEL 53!!! Should I buy HQ 53 gear?Collectables are an awesome new spin on the turn-in system for both crafters and gatherers. For gatherers they purchase tokens which unlock the ability to see the new 1 star nodes in certain zones.
The entire collectable system for gatherers is the best ever. Collectable nodes can net you an insane amount of exp in a short amount of time. If you do leves between hitting collectable nodes, you can level very quickly! So how do they work? An item can either be level 0, 1, 2, or 3 based on how much collectability it has.
Levels 1, 2, and 3 give a different amount of experience and Scrips based on how much collectability you generated. Note: Since you can turn collectable items into non-collectable items, level 0 items can sometimes be used for crafting! As an example, the level 50 requested item is usually Yellow Copper Ore with a minimum of collectability.
Now how do you get collectability? Now a new menu should pop up! Similar to when crafting, you have a limited number of actions to raise the item to as high of a quality collectability as you want, while not breaking it, before gathering the items.
In more detail: Each appraisal action generates rarity based on how much perception you have, while raising the Wear on the item, and consuming a gathering attempt. If the wear exceeds the maximum e. Basically, you broke it. The bestest part of this IMO is that you can calculate what rotation you need to do in advance! That happens to add up to collectability :D.
What that means is if you know you can generate 96 on a regular hit, then you know that with two hits and GP, you can generate enough rarity without going over the Wear maximum. This kind of thing is awesome because you only get 6 attempts on a node. If you use 1 attempt to reveal and 2 to get the collectability up, then you can gather 3 collectable ore over the minimum and get k experience off of a single node!
As you level you get new awesome skills like Single Mind that let you come up with new ways of maximizing your exp or scrips per node.
If you can get 3 level 1 items, its usually better than 2 level 2 items based on how the exp scaling works. So practice and you can get that. These can be worked into your rotation both when your gear is too low to reliably reach thresholds, and when your gear is so good that you can try to increase yield even further.
Also, here is a guide Ichyro created for maxing collectability on ephemeral nodes. It will change from showing? Would you like to keep this Yellow Copper Ore with rarity? Choosing yes will create an unstackable collectable item in your inventory that can be turned in. Choosing no will give you a non-collectable stackable version of the item.
Many of the botany items can be used for crafts though! Make sure you balance between the two. TL;DR For gathering, collectability is a new minigame that replaces turn-ins to help you level quickly and get your fancy books and gear.
These are extremely simple, and actually quite easy to get once you get the hang of it.Shadowbringers Updated up to Level 80! Level up Mining Quickly! Stop wasting time! Power Level your Miner! Well, luckily that the level 50 to 60 content is a lot better compared to 1 to Also, the materials seem to be more useful, whatever you decide to gather.
Anyways, lets get to it! The guide begins with a chunky amount of basic information which I suggest you readthen proceeds to the nitty gritty of leveling your Miner. You can access a new mining node in Coerthas Western Highlands, but the loot you get is somewhat useless. It does have a high material level, so if your gear is up to snuff you can grind on these. Hell, you can even do the Mining Levequests in Ishgard! While I admire you miners out there that want to rush mining only, trying to mine without a flying mount attuned to the map is absolutely crazy.
So, lemme give you a short tutorial on the basics of collectibles and scrips. Let me put it in simpler terms: Your miner can get hundreds and thousands of EXP per unspoiled collectible mining node. So how does this work? A basic mining collectible guide:. Perception increases collectability. Each appraisal and collect reduces node HP.
Do not bother with collectibles if you have less than GP. Use food if you have to. Back in the day, leveling miner, it was all about the levequests. Mining temple levequests : are just beefier version of the regular ones.
So any notes for miner leves apply to these too. On a general thought, Temple leves are very time efficient, but levequest allowance inefficient. They cost 10x the amount, but award maybe 4x? Not that ideal for leveling your miner, but ideal for slicing through a massive excess of leves. If you wanna grind, which I did in between unspoiled nodes — grind the living hell out of Mythrite Sand.
Results 1 to 9 of 9. Thread: Collectable gathering rotations? Collectable gathering rotations? I've had a hard time finding a collection of information on endgame gathering, and I was wondering what rotations everyone uses for gathering collectables.
What are the most efficient rotations for blue scrips, red scrips, and Rowena tokens? Take a look at this thread. Both methods require at least gp.
FFXIV Collectables Guide
The four hit method: 1. Start with Single Mind gp and Utmost Caution gp 2. Use Impulsive Appraisal three times. Use Methodical Appraisal, and collect three collectables. Use Methodical Appraisal, and collect two collectables. The three hit method: 1. Use Discerning Eye gpthen Impulsive Appraisal. Otherwise, use Discerning Eye gp. Impulsive Appraisal again. Use Methodical Appraisal, and collect two collectables, plus one for each Single Mind you used.

Be sure to have completed the Inscrutable Tastes quest — if not then you cannot craft collectibles!
Next, activate the ability Collectible Synthesis. When you select the item you want to craft to turn in. The only difference is that there is no HQ chance, there is only a dash. So we can ignore that. What you want to keep an eye on is the quality number. Make sure you remember what the minimum number is to safely turn in. That is the goal, meet the minimum. Especially while leveling up. Now the rotation that I use. If not, this single round can usually net at least the miniumum.
With NQ materials and good luck, you can reach over in collectible rarity. This rotation does rely on RNG so it can potentially fail. Not the best stats but enough that hitting the minimum number is no issue. If you are having problems, you can either upgrade your gear, activating free company buffs or eat food.
At around level 55 you should be upgrading anyway since the gear is far better than the former best in slot of A Realm Reborn. My right side gear remains the same as ARR. I also use this rotation for blue scrip items though I will sometimes use a Precise Touch on a Good condition rather than hitting tricks of the trade.
Precise Touch will give you 2 stacks on your inner quiet stack which can be helpful, especially when a hasty touch fails. That will often leave me with enough CP overall to complete the rotation.
As always, have fun and good luck collecting these scrips. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment. The Saintblade Ragnarok is one of the best 1-Handed swords in the entire game.
