Crafting on Supernova


Crafting on Supernova bears significant differences than on retail.  Most notably, skillup rates are boosted so it will take less time to level and rank crafts up, and players can join all  8 crafting guilds without switching back and forth, allowing them to join the affectionately-dubbed “800 Club”, being among players who have reached Veteran rank in all 8 disciplines.

Crafting Basics

To begin a crafting discipline, simply speak to the relevant Guild Master NPC for your chosen craft. You can join any craft at any time, and progress on current crafts is not lost.

Compass Crafting

On Supernova, a 10% HQ rate has been added when facing the appropriate compass direction.  Check the Crafting Compass below for the proper direction.


With the Alchemy Guild, Guild NPC Hemewmew will give players certain crafting key items for Alchemy as they rank up.  Players receive the Key Item Alchemic Ensorcellment upon joining the Alchemy Guild.  As players rank up, they only need to speak with Hemewmew in Bastok Mines at the Alchemy Union to receive the associated Key Item.

  • Trituration – Recruit
  • Iatrochemistry – Initiate
  • Concoction – Novice
  • Alchemic Purification – Apprentice
