Goldsmithing is the practice of working precious metals and stones into a multitude of accessories that appeal to the Eorzean aesthetic. It makes use of golds and silvers; rubies and sapphires; and a myriad of other materials to decorate weapons, armor, and tools.
Due to the extreme value of the source materials being worked with, the guild has adopted a philosophy of "high risk, high return". This has given them a reputation for being laborious scrutinizers of market trends, always paying heed to the fluctuating economy. The primary tool of the goldsmith is the chaser hammer. The player can become a goldsmith in Ul'dah.
