Blacksmiths' Guild

The Blacksmiths' Guild is open 8:00 - 23:00 and is closed on Watersday.
By speaking to Mevreauche or Ghemp, the Guild Masters, you can sign up to the guild and get a free crystal.

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. Synthesis Image Support can be obtained from the following Guild representatives:

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) a smithed 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 one of the Guild Masters, Mevreauche or Ghemp.

Guild Points Items

Once you have attained the rank of Novice, you may begin to earn Guild Points with the Blacksmiths' 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 Macuillie, at (E-6) in Northern San d'Oria or Lorena, at (E-7) in Metalworks 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.
