Alchemists' Guild

The Alchemists' Guild is open 8:00 - 23:00 and is closed on Lightsday in Bastok, and on Lightningsday in Al Zahbi.
By speaking to Abd-al-Raziq, the Guild Master, you can sign up to the guild and get a free crystal.

Synthesis Image Support

Synthesis image support temporarily raises your skill by 1 point. Advanced support raises your skill by 3 points, and requires a small fee based on your crafting rank, but also lasts much longer. Synthesis Image Support can be obtained from the following Guild representatives:

Name Location Support
Titus Bastok Mines (K-7) Synth. Image Support
Sieglinde Bastok Mines (K-7) Synth. Image Support
Shahau Aht Urhgan Whitegate (F-5) Synth. Image Support

Guild Test Items

Every ten skill levels, you are required to prove to the guild that you "have what it takes" by crafting (or buying) an Alchemic item of the guild's choosing. This item can be turned in once you have reached an "8" in skill (8, 28, 48, etc.) or higher skill (up to the cap). Once you have the requisite skill, speak with the Guild Master, Abd-al-Raziq.

Guild Points Items

Once you have attained the rank of Novice, you may begin to earn Guild Points with the Alchemists' Guild. Note that you may only accumulate Guild Points for one guild at a time. The "Item of the Day" that the guild will accept changes every day at Japanese Midnight, and varies by crafting rank. Speak with Hemewmew, at (K-7) in Bastok Mines to find out what the item is, determine the limit to how many points can be earned, turn in items for points, and to spend points on Guild Point Items.
