Workshop Wisdom #3

 I was honestly waiting till Eden released and we got all the 5.0 content to start writing again so i would give my opinion on the expansion as a whole (spoiler: its real good) but i found this too useful early on to not pass the info on to others. In this case its Collectibles in Norvrant.

To begin with you can start getting garaunteed collectibles with the correct rating at lvl.72. Which basically means mine like 3 stacks of crap in Amh Areang, do your first Crystalline Mean gatherer quest for the respective Job and then maybe 6-9 levequests and you will hit 72 no problem. Now the scrip endgame starts early!

Now hit up the gear vendor at Fort Jobb in Lakeland and get the lvl.71 gatherer tools and gear then either craft if you can or hit the market board for HQ Smilodonskin accessories. At this point in the expansion they will be common and the HQ versions all the moreso, i snapped up everything for 400k gil which honestly is less than i made during the MSQ on my first job during early access so should be easily affordable.

Now use V or higher gatherer materia to meld till you hit 1300 gathering, 1200 perception and 700gp. Thats it. You can now get 2 450ish collectibles everytime with ease. But we can make that easier with the following macro:

/ac “Discerning Eye” <wait.3>

/ac “Methodical Appraisal” <wait.3>
/ac “Discerning Eye” <wait.3>
/ac “Methodical Appraisal” <wait.3>
/ac “Single Mind” <wait.3>
/ac “Methodical Appraisal” <wait.3>

/echo Macro Complete!

It also doesnt hurt to have Field Mastery II or Sharp Vision II evn though your gathering rate should be 95% or higher just in case but in my experience with the gear and stats mentioned above but the rating was already pretty high but with that as well you cannot fail to gather twice and thats good for over half a million xp which at lvl.72 is 30 nodes for the level. The more important thing here is yellow scrip. Along with new items and cosmetics to blow them on they can also be turned into tokens for folklore books. Its 100 per token and 40 folklore per book. So you need 120 of them or 12,000 scrip to unlock all 3 folklore tomes. Which across 3 jobs from lvl.72 onwards with this macro and this gear -which should be good up to lvl.76 collectibles- should be around cap if you dont just stick to the base ones which would take like 600!. Still the sooner you start getting them the better. Not only to save those leves for levelling crafters but to have the folklore required for Easy white scrip the sooner the better.

Its no huge gamer changer but its something easy to brainlessly automate and the sooner you start the better. Gotta have something to do while waiting for the healers in roulette queues right?

-i know this looks terrible, its a blogger glitch.
