Leatherworkers are craftsmen who refine the hides, pelts, and furs of Eorzea's wildlife into garments to be worn from head to toe. Foremost among their creations are leather protectives, which are more substantial than cloth, but lighter and more pliable than chain or plate.
The Elezen have long been known for their skill in leatherworking, yet for centuries their techniques were heavily guarded. Once they agreed to share their wealth of knowledge, the quality of Gridanian leather goods improved significantly, creating an increased demand for the superior products.
Leatherworkers are Disciples of the Hand that use hides, furs and pelts to create leather armor for multiple classes in the game. They are also capable of crafting leather-based accessories, weapons for Monks, furniture, and many other items.
Any player with at least one level 10 Disciple of War or Magic is eligible to become a Leatherworker. The Leatherworkers' Guild is located in Gridania. Speak with the receptionist to start the first quest.
