Final Fantasy XIV Guide: Now This Is Ishgardian Restoration Guide

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

  We all know this old saying and that is teamwork makes the concerted dream work.

  Now since you have already decided to contribute towards this Ishgardian Restoration, then you really need to take some actions, but, according to my observation, that you might be a bit confused as to what that entails. Well, here let me tell you something about this one, if you have ever used the Collectibles system, well, congratulations, you will not be too unfamiliar with what's going on in The Firmament.

  After you successfully finished "Towards the Firmament”, level at least one crafter to level 20 to proceed the next several steps much easier.

  Even though you might not need to have a crafter or gatherer at level 20 to unlock access to the Ishgardian Restoration, you will need at least one to contribute towards this cause. And in here, crafters are the key: while gatherers will be needed to gather the new Skybuilder materials needed to craft the requested items, the contribution now is rewarded for those delivered craftables.

  In your crafting log, you will unlock a brand new Skybuilder recipe for each crafting class at levels 20, 40, 60, 70, and finally 80. And each recipe will call for Skybuilder materials earned from quite similarly leveled gathering nodes (plus-or-minus five levels), and for these materials, you can either be farmed all by yourself (on the condition that you have the level-appropriate gatherer), or you can make a purchase on the Market Board (for a pretty penny right now).

  The perfect method to go about this is just to concentrate on one crafting class firstly, and then try to keep your gatherers close to that crafter's level if they are not already at max level. You should know that gatherers are insanely simple to level these days, and you even can grab upwards of ten levels every thirty minutes by doing levequests. Please keep in mind to use your Grand Company tokens to buy Survival Manuals to boost gathering experience as well, and you will notice you will not struggle to keep your gatherers near your crafter's level.

  Craft the new Skybuilder recipes and then turn them into Potkin.

  Although you might not be able to turn in the new Skybuilder gathering materials for credit, you can use them to make the new Skybuilder recipes, after you talk to Potkin, you can access within your Crafting Log. And then he will offer you both the crafting recipes and the gathering nodes locations, and these, usually, can be found under the “Special Recipes” tab in your Crafting Log, within Ishgardian Restoration. After you find this, right-click these materials will let your check where they can be gathered, however, if you do not see them that means you gatherer is currently at a too low level.

  Here, common sense does apply very well: for instance, if it looks like water or minerals then it is must be a miner material, and plants and sap fall under the botanist's purview. If you just do not want to gather these all by yourself, you can purchase them off the Market Board, however, right now, they are quite expensive and that means you will cost massive Final Fantasy XIV Gil

  Once you acquire all the needed materials, then you need to find the recipe in your Crafting Log, and then Synthesize it. Please note do not use Quick Synth, cause you need to reach a minimum "Collectability" ranking if you plan the item in for credit. Here is the thing: you do not need these collectables ability unlocked to make these: and these will always be crafted as collectables. If you do not know what the minimum is, then just check with Potkin; it's best to know before you start wasting materials.

  Depending on the recipe, your gear, and your level reaching the minimum collectability ranking can prove quite difficult, therefore, make sure to keep your gear up to date by just visiting vendors in some main cities, or just browsing the Market Board. While it might be tempting to push for the highest rating, this could prove difficult for a lot of new crafters. Final Fantasy XIV FFXIV4Gil is a quite nice website for figuring out a rotation based on your current stats and equipment, and for now, focus on hitting that minimum collectability on every craft.


  Just as the screenshots above show, with each turn-in, you will be rewarded with a boatload of experience, and you will be given Restoration Scrips, a currency used in this area to purchase high-level crafter and gatherer materia, minions, music, new mounts and much more. You will also gain points towards the Ishgardian Restoration itself, which will finally trigger a “Concerted Works” public event in the area when your server has filled the bar visible at the Skybuilders’ Board.

  Finish Concerted Works To Progress The Ishgardian Restoration:

  As long as the bar is full, and then a Concerted Works will be scheduled. And just as you know, it will always be several hours after this bar was filled, therefore, players can schedule around it in advance. The Skybuilder's Board will offer you the exact time left till this event, as well as when this will trigger in your local time.

  Once this event does officially kick-off, then you will need to be on either a gatherer or crafter above level 20. These work just like any other FATE in this game: you will be arranged a task, and once you fill the progress bar the FATE will conclude and you will be rewarded based on contribution. So now the very first Concerted Works we triggered on Gilgamesh asked us to grab wood from a supply pile, refine this, and then install this on four different nodes.

  Once this event is finished, then you will be awarded a chunk of experience, some FFXIV Gil, and most importantly 500 Restoration Scrips. Moreover, you even can hop into other worlds and then help with their Concerted Works if you want to grind scrips, however, your contribution will count towards that world's progress.

  And that's basically it: step one: purchase or gather the requisite Skybuilder materials, step two: craft them into Skybuilder recipes above a certain collectability ranking, final step: turn them in for rewards. Every several hours or so a Concerted Works should officially initiate, and this zone would be slowly gradually repaired as these events are finished.

  Now then, get back to work: that new housing zone will not build itself overnight. And of course, for more guides like Getting Final Fantasy XIV Parasol etc., you can check out our FFXIV4Gil BLOG.
