Introduction

The war with Dravania rages on, brutal and unrelenting. With no end in sight, the Holy See grows desperate. As her dragoons lay down their lives in defense of their home, Ishgard turns to technology to protect her sons and daughters. Great cannons and ballistas now line the city walls, plucking dragons from the sky.

Following the example of Cid Garlond, who has demonstrated the potency of magitek, the Skysteel Manufactory works tirelessly on the development of advanced armaments. As new and devastating weapons are brought to the fray, a new class of champion arises to wield them―the machinist.

Job mechanics

Heat Gauge is Machinist's Job Gauge.

Heat Gauge in PvE

Upon learning the action Hypercharge, the Heat Gauge will be displayed.

Using certain weaponskills will generate heat. When you have generated enough, Hypercharge can be activated, overheating your firearm. This allows the execution of certain weaponskills such as Heat Blast (acquired at level 35) and Auto Crossbow (acquired at level 52).

Upon learning the action Rook Autoturret, the Battery Gauge will be displayed.

The Battery Gauge accumulates when certain actions are performed and allows the placement of a Rook Autoturret, which will attack your target. It also allows the deployment of an Automaton Queen (acquired at level 80) to fight alongside you.
