FFXIV Miner IconThe Miner (採掘師, Saikutsu Shi?) is a Disciple of the Land in Final Fantasy XIV.

OverviewEdit

The Miners' Guild is responsible for the excavation and handling of Eorzea's mineral wealth, be it ores, fossils, precious stones, or otherwise. It should come as no surprise, then, that their most eager customers are the realm's blacksmiths and goldsmiths.

To fully master the advanced techniques developed by the great mining nation of Ul'dah, miners must undertake a wide range of tasks, from the meticulous prospecting of the most minute deposits to large–scale civil engineering. The guild staunchly subscribes to the theory of continental drift, and as such many among its ranks take Oschon, the Wanderer, for their patron deity. The primary tool of the miner is the pickaxe.
