About Grand Carpentry

The level 20 primary scenario quests actually send the Warrior of Light off to join one of Eorzea’s Grand Companies. Sure, there is no wrong or right answer here, so make sure to select the Grand Company whose ideals you identify with the most or whose the nicest colours or also whose the funniest NPC names.

The important thing for an aspiring Carpenter is the Supply and Provision missions that now become available. You definitely can access them at your GC’s headquarters and they will provide crafting tasks to sign up for on a rotating basis.

What you should do is to just go with the flow, making whatever they ask of you. You may find players who are levelling up almost comically quickly if you have ever wandered into a Grand Company area.

When you gain Grand Company seals, make sure to buy some Company-issue Engineering Guides. However, those are consumable buffs that activate it and provide a 150% experience boost for your Carpenter class for the next 18 hours.

Here are the easy recipes to make:

Recipe 1: Walnut Lumber

Ingredients:

    • 3 x Walnut Log
    • 2 x Wind Shard
