The beginning of Crafting and Gathering adventures

New Crafting and Gathering adventures awaited me with Stormblood. Suddenly, my guild leaders had new tasks. All at the same time. It was really weird.

My bestie Nanamo-chan wanted some musical instruments crafted from my Goldsmithing master.

Unfortunately, she didn’t realize who she was talking to…

Nanamo was really understanding, so no major issue happened. Thanks to “her dear Riiko”. :)

She also insisted on starting a Goldsmithing school in Rhalgr’s reach but didn’t want to be known as their funding source. Such a noble plan, lil Nanamo! Thanks for supporting those in need.

As Botanist, I helped out the local botanists in Idyllshire to ensure their supplies of fresh food. Unfortunately, a cookie tree has vet to be invented.

The Goblin from Idyllshire and his pupils were building something and needed rare ore to be mined for them. If course it was an easy feat for me to do.

From a Sahagin, I learned a new way of fishing.


And now I’m stuck on the Level 68 quest for ever and ever… :(

All my other crafter teachers had new tasks for me that lead me to Kugane or other new areas. If you are curious what happened.. Why don’t you do them yourself? >:D

I figured, everyone can do these quests as they are leveling these classes. Why bother to specifically write what you already know anyway? :\


Can you draw these FFXIV job and class icons?

It is several months ago since this trended on Twitter. I always meant to fill it out but I eventually forgot about it. Now it’s time, to do what has to be done: Can I draw these icons?

Oh right, my name is Riiko Rinkoko and my main job is WHM.

LOL if this was a test at school I would have failed due to forgetting my name… It’s been many years since school, please forgive me!

I’m surprised how many icons I could remember – the wrong way around! Many would have to be mirrored horizontally to be correct. If there is anyone around who can explain this phenomenon, please do!

After finishing, I noticed that I drew SCH as a Butt Mage when in fact it is a Boob Mage! O.O; Please check it thoroughly, everyone!

Here you can find the original post with the blank form if you would like to fill this out too! :D

Glamourous Glamours

Mag and me develop our glamours over time. Sometimes, we happen to have matching outfits, like these Ravana weapons:


After obtaining the weapon, I needed a real outfit, not just a pyjama with Moogle slippers.


Please find my crafting outfit 2016 below:


Awesome picture of my Scholar at the Church/Scholar place!


New Ninja outfit:


Sometimes, I sat with Mag at the Idyllshire fountain, waiting for the lil Miqo girl to show up.


Usually, she didn’t come, but the time spent together was still nice.


My Astrologian has a new, magical weapon.

Whenever I draw a card, it stops glowing though o.o;


Yet, my overall outfit looks amazing. RIGHT?!


More glamours to come!


Just a friend

So, my Weaver Guildmaster told me, I should go and make my weaving famous in Ishgard. Not like I was already famous there for crafting various other items, but he didn’t have to know everything.

He told me to use my affiliation with House Fortemps to make myself a name there.

2015-06-19 WVR HW 01

So I walked through town to see if anyone needed some stitching.

Soon I found a young lady who was forced by her mom to become a weaver btu she actually wanted to be a chirurgeon – a White Mage.

I was all like: Why not both?!

Somehow, this was impossible for people of the land to have two jobs at the same time.

2015-06-19 WVR HW 02

So she told me about her friend with whom she wanted to go out into battle and ensure that he wouldn’t die out there. Especially since he was a little clumsy.

2015-06-19 WVR HW 04

Right, so this was her “friend”. Right.

2015-06-19 WVR HW 05

I talked some courage into them and they agreed to openly talk to her mother about it.

2015-06-19 WVR HW 06

Needless to say, the mother was furious.

2015-06-19 WVR HW 07

But then, suddenly, she became calm and all understanding. She told her daughter for the first time about her husband. She had been a healer too, just like her daughter wanted to be now. And she had been fighting with her husband all along. But then…

2015-06-19 WVR HW 08

It was a tragic past that had marked the mother for life. But protecting the child by forbidding them to follow their dreams is not an option. It’s not real protection. Real protection is to be skilled in your job and fighting with friends that you can rely on! ò.ó

2015-06-19 WVR HW 09

And so, the young couple left town to follow their dreams.



Bearproof clothing

My Letherworker Guildmaster called me to her. She had received a letter form an old friend who had a leather clothes and shoes store in Ishgard and I was to help her out.

2015-06-19 LTW HW 01

So I went there and she asked me to make the finest shoes Gridanian style. They were something really new on the ishgardian market and would surely sell really well.

2015-06-19 LTW HW 02

So I made some really cool boots and the shop owner had a bard advertise them.

2015-06-19 LTW HW 03

It was kinda embarassing.

2015-06-19 LTW HW 04

After that, the store received so many requests, they could barely follow up.

A few weeks later, they asked me to make armor so flexible but strong at the same time, no enemy should be able to rip through it.

No problem.

I made the armor and they had some guy working for the store get hit by a bear in order to test it.

2015-06-19 LTW HW 05

The armor was bearproof. No claw could get through it and the guy stayed unharmed.

2015-06-19 LTW HW 06

But then the bear aimed for the guy’s unprotected head!!

2015-06-19 LTW HW 07

He ran for his life and the guards rushed to his aid.

2015-06-19 LTW HW 08

Of course, he was saved but he had suffered quite the shock.

If he had only let me craft some awful looking coif. it would have protected him and he wouldn’t have had run from the enemy. But no, the ishgardiands didn’t approve of coifs either.

2015-06-19 LTW HW 09

Anyway, this is how I became known in Ishgard as the bearproof Master-Letherworker from Gridania.
