Welcome to the CatsEyeXI crafting guide!



This guide will review some basics and provide an optimal skill up path for each craft.

General Information

CatsEyeXI uses the following rates, adjusted from retail.

Main Craft Level Cap: 110
Sub Craft Level Cap: 70
Crafting Skillup Rate: 1.5x CatsEyeXI AcceleratedCrystal Warrior
Crafting Skillup Multiplier: 3.0x CatsEyeXI Accelerated
Fishing Skillup Rate: 3.0x CatsEyeXI AcceleratedCrystal WarriorWings-Era Warrior
Fishing Skillup Multiplier: 1.0x CatsEyeXI AcceleratedCrystal WarriorWings-Era Warrior
Owing to their self-found nature, Crystal Warriors may skill all crafts up to 110.Crystal Warrior

There are no crafting myths active here. Your cardinal direction, day of the week, or weather active will have ZERO impact on the final results.

You can skill up 11 levels over the item's natural cap.

The /lastsynth command works and can be used such as in the following example macro.
full

Taking your craft to 110 level skill is possible, but you will have challenges as this is a level 75 capped server, and many of the materials post skill cap 100 are not available. Take advantage of skill ups over natural recipe caps.

Garbagio

CatsEyeXI Garbagio.png

Garbagio is a custom CatsEyeXI NPC located in Port Jeuno (I-8). Trading this NPC cursed armor will return 3 to 12 tatters that correspond to the cursed armor traded. Use this if you are trying for a rare high quality synthesis and have an inventory full of normal quality items.

Farming Rare Items

Many synthesis recipes require you to farm the items directly from the monsters. Our website has a very powerful item lookup tool. Use this to find the best camps and targets to gather rare materials.

Visit our website at CatsEyeXI.com

Log in, click database tools in the top-right, then items.

Suggested Recipes

Click below to view suggested items to skill up on for your craft. Crafting kits are sold by guild vendors. They increase exponentially in cost as you level up. It is thus not recommended for a player to use kits to skill up.

Please keep in mind that these are community-fed suggestions, and alternatives may be found on the respective craft's page, linked here on each table's title.

Feel free to contribute any alternatives you would recommend.
