FFXIV Carpenter IconThe Carpenter (木工師, Mokkou Shi?) is a Disciple of the Hand in Final Fantasy XIV.


The foremost workers of wood, carpenters possess expert knowledge of the hardness, pliability, weight, and value of all types of timber. Their creed is to bring these natural traits to bear in the form of various wares, including utensils and furniture.

Woodworking techniques were, and continue to be, developed and refined by the shipbuilding endeavors of Limsa Lominsa, as well as the towering architectural pursuits of Ishgard. However, it is in and around Gridania, home to the highest quality timber, that the craft's greatest strides have been made.

Gridanian carpentry produces everything from the masks used in their religious ceremonies to the enormous structures that make up their city. The primary tool of the carpenter is the handsaw.


Carpenters can make the bows used by Archers and canes used by Conjurers, as well as the spinning wheels used by Weavers and grinding wheels used by Goldsmiths. They can also manufacture some kinds of footwear used by adventurers as well as wooden shields.

Their specialization in timber lets them prepare chopped logs into processed lumber used by many Disciples of the Hand. They also can create various furniture, including the walls of wood style housing.


Carpenters are defined by wielding a saw in the main hand, and can equip a claw hammer to the off-hand.
