Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn lets you craft items. In order to craft, you need to gather items first. This evening, Square Enix shared a video that shows off the gathering and crafting process in the game. Take a look at it below:
Square’s quick summary explains: “When crafting, players must first select a recipe from their crafting log and click on Synthesize to begin the process. Players must then perform class actions—using crafting points—to complete the process before durability is compromised.”
Square also note that the characters featured in this video are of a low level.
