Disciples of the Land

Update: This article is just a brief primer on disciples of the land. Since the time of writing, I’ve found this guide. I recommend you head over and get yourself a copy as well. Not only does it have an insanely detailed chapter on disciples of the land, but an absolutely brilliant leveling guide as well (see my review). I so wish I had gotten that when I first bought the game – it would have saved me a lot of time (which could have been used to improve the design of this blog instead :))

disciples of the land

In Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, three of the possible 11 crafting and harvesting classes belong to the Disciples of the Land. These three classes are the harvesting and gathering classes of the game and focus on collecting raw materials and trade goods that can be used for crafting and trade. The harvesting system in FFXIV allows Disciples of the Land to either concentrate on rare materials or common materials.

Miners roam the rocky hillsides looking for raw ore nodes to harvest using a pickaxe. After mining ore nodes, Miners can find ore deposits, gems and other rare materials. The gathering system allows Miners to find some especially rare items in this manner.

Miners harvest goods that are used by all of the crafting classes in the game, but especially Armorers, Blacksmiths, Goldsmiths and Alchemists. To become a Miner, talk to the Guildmaster in Ul’dah.┬áRead the full FFXIV Miner Guide.

Botanists are guardians of the natural world and know about every plant and tree that grows on the hillsides and in the forests. With an axe in hand, Botanists chop down trees and harvest wood and other rare, plant-based materials.

They gather materials that are used by all of the crafting classes in the game but especially Carpenters, Weavers, Culinarians and Alchemists. To become a Botanist, talk to the Guildmaster in Gridania. Read the full FFXIV Botanist Guide.

Fishers are called to the lakes and oceans and spend their days relaxing on a dock with a fishing line in the water. They catch many different varieties of fish including some types that are quite rare.

The fish that Fishers catch are used by most of the crafting classes in FFXIV: ARR, but Alchemists and Culinarians have the most uses for fish overall. To become a Fisher, talk to the Guildmaster in Limsa Lominsa. Read the full FFXIV Fisher Guide.

On the chance of repeating myself, this article is just a brief primer on disciples of the land. Since the time of writing, I’ve found this guide. I recommend you head over and get yourself a copy as well. Not only does it have an insanely detailed chapter on disciples of the land, but an absolutely brilliant leveling guide as well (see my review).
