    Guild Information

    This bit of information was taken from this site just incase some people didn't notice it.

    Last Update: May 3, 2003

    Your skill will increase as more items are successfully created. Items can be made with the crystals which can be either bought or dropped by monster while signet is active. The day of the week and the weather(element) will also play a small part on lowering or improving the chance of successfully synthesizing a item.
    After you reach certain levels, you may decide to take a test that'll put you 1 step higher in the skill title. The following table is the list of Titles along with Skill Level and Promotion Test Level:

    Skill Level Promotion Test Level
    Amateur 0-10 8
    Intern 10-20 18
    Apprentice 20-30 28
    Junior craftsman 30-40 38
    Named 40-50 48
    Listed 50-60 58
    Permited / Approved 60-70 68

    There are 8 Types of item synthesizing guilds. The following table is the list of Guild and brief information about that particular guild:

    Guild Name
    Hours / Location Information
    Alchemy Bastok A guild which plays mainly with chemicals and potion types with odd ingredients. Main focus on guild is medicine and special potions, but it also makes special weapons.
    Although compound skill is not really needed, woodwork, a black smith, and gold smith skill are a great plus for bows, arrows and bullet type synthesizing.

    Cooking skill by itself can work very well. No other skills are depended on when synthesizing food.

    Gold Smith Bastok, Mhaura / 8am-11pm Ore and precious-metals material are mainly used. Main focus of this guild is making jewels, rings, necklace, and earrings which adds improved points to the owner.

    Last but not least there is a "everyone is welcome to join for the heck of it" type of guild in Windurst and Selbina. It is a Fishing Guild. Basically all it will help greatly in improving your Fishing Skills. You may also buy fish and bait at low costs.

    Tip: Every guild there is a "teacher" who can cast a temporary "boost" to help you success on synthesizing item. It is always best idea to synthesize with the same element crystal as the day's element.

      Thanks for the link. I know you said it's a Bilingual site but when it says crystal used it's in japanese. It still has a lot of good info though. I'll put it on the list.

            Thanks, I never noticed that before. I was looking though.

              The site by bishop is really helpful. I find that everything is up to date on the recipe lists. The maps don't help a lot though since they aren't translated. Shouldn't this be at the top of the page?:confused:


              • #8
                There are better maps now. Look at the top of main topic forum and you will see what I'm talking about.

                What do you mean this is supposed to be at the top, since you replied or something? Try refreshing the page.

                    I'm not exactly sure what you mean when you say the maps aren't translated. They are all in English. The map database is all uploaded, but the interactive map menu's aren't done yet so you can't access all the maps. I wouldn't mind some help if any of you are offering any.

                      Is your site down or is my link bad? I can't reach it right now.

                        correct me if i'm wrong..but i dont think there is a guild "teacher" in the fishing guild in selbina. theres 2 guys selling stuff, and 2 guys just standing around. i went there looking for someone to take the test to raise to beginner instead of amatuer and didn't find anyone. which means i need to go to the guild in windurst i think anybody know ?
