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)

Carpentry skills

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.

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.

  1. IMO, if you’re leveling ANY craft skill, you should always get carpenter to 15 for Rumination. It makes leveling a lot less painful since when you’re leveling, you are very often CP starved and will find yourself with more durability than CP and are unable to use any extra touch skills.

    Unfortunately because of how ridiculous byregot’s blessing is for 2 star recipes, you’ll pretty much stop using it once you have all the skills needed for 100% HQing 2 star crafts.

  2. Hi Guild,

    Thanks for the guides – they are very helpful!
    Thought I could help out with a couple of things;

    Firstly, in the Brand of Wind bit, you talk about using it if the element is ice. I assume this is meant to be if the element is wind?
    Secondly, to work out the affinity of a recipe, it will have it listed under Characteristics as “Aspect: ” if you inspect the recipe at the top. Hope this makes sense!

    1. Inner quiet increases your control stat every time you successfully increase the quality of the item you are currently crafting.

      Control is the stat that determines by what amount you increase the quality.

  3. how exactly does this skill work? does it depend on the times or amount you increase in quality. e.g. is it more efficient to do basic touch three times, or advanced touch, or is it the same. Lastly, does the effect of inner quiet cap, or does it keep increasing without stooping?

    1. Yes! Alot of our skill tables are unupdated past beta P4, as there are many little minor changes. The lack of an official changelog has made it quite tedious, but it is on the menu for next week. Thank you for the feedback and know that we are aware of it, Ben!
