Armorers treat and work the malleable metals of Eorzea into all forms of armor. By binding together sheet, stud, and link, they are able to produce garb of plate and chain that has saved the lives of countless adventurers.
Though the armor trade once fell within the realm of blacksmithing, advancements in both metallurgical techniques and material refinement led to its necessary specialization, and it is now recognized as an official profession by all nations.
Armorers are Disciples of the Hand that work with metals to create equipable armor for multiple classes. For example, they can make frypans for Culinarians, alembics for Alchemists, heavy shields for Paladins, and much more.
