Allies in Alloys
Armorers treat and work the malleable metals of Eorzea into all forms of armor. By binding together sheet, stud, and link, they are able to produce garb of plate and chain that has saved the lives of countless adventurers.
Though the armor trade once fell within the realm of blacksmithing, advancements in both metallurgical techniques and material refinement led to its necessary specialization, and it is now recognized as an official profession by all nations. The primary tool of the armorer is the doming hammer.
Armorers can create metallic armor to be worn by Gladiators, Marauders, and Lancers, as well as construct the alembics used by Alchemists and skillets used by Culinarians. They also can affix Materia to said equipment.
Being metallurgists, Armorers can also smelt the various ingots needed by Disciples of the Hand and hammer them into sheets.
Armorers are defined by wielding a doming hammer in the main hand, and can equip pliers to the off-hand.
