For gatherers and crafters in Final Fantasy XIV, they need to have access to The Ishgardian Restoration, however, without a detailed instruction, that’ll be very hard, here I’d like to show you how to unlock the Ishgardian Restoration in FFXIV.
Whether you are a beginner or a veteran in Final Fantasy XIV, here comes the basic knowledge that we all know that the Ishgardian Restoration is a live, server-wide event for crafters and gatherers in this game. Gamers on each server work together to reconstruct a portion of the snowy city-state of Ishgardian. Generally speaking, gatherers usually collect special materials, while crafters turn those materials into tangible objects for the restoration project. And every server has its own leaderboard for various prizes (of course, more than just Final Fantasy XIV Gil reward) at the end of each ranking period. It’s also a perfect method to level up your gatherers and crafters quickly.
Gatherers in FFXIV have access to a revamped version of Diadem where they could collect materials, and then they turn in those materials for appraisal. However, when it comes to crafters, they could use those appraised materials to create some special collectible items. Anyway, both methods reward players with Skybuilders’ scrips for several special rewards, as well as tons of experience points for leveling up. Unless the live event is still ongoing, otherwise gamers will not receive any ranking points, just as displayed in on-screen messages while in Ishgardian. However, you could proceed to earn experience points and Skybuilders’ scrips at any time.
