Ishgardian Restoration

With the Dragonsong War brought to its conclusion, the Houses of Lords and Commons have approved large-scale reconstruction works aimed at revitalizing the Holy See of Ishgard. The principal site for the project is the Firmament district, which sustained extensive damage during the millennium-long conflict. Appointed overseer of this endeavor is the young Lord Francel of House Haillenarte, who now seeks able and willing artisans the realm over to contribute to this great and noble cause.

About the Ishgardian Restoration

By participating in the Ishgardian Restoration, Disciples of the Hand and Land can join forces to help reconstruct the Firmament, a district in Foundation yet to recover from the ravages of the Dragonsong War.

Though Ishgard was not built in a day, her people are not wont to deny helping hands that might hasten their efforts. Be it the gathering of raw materials or the fashioning of supplies, one and all are welcome to help lay the cornerstone of a new Ishgard. Now, with work in the Mendicant's Court having reached its conclusion, the skybuilders seek to restore other areas of Ishgard.

Rebuilding the Firmament


The reconstruction of the Firmament demands a large amount of materials specific to the project. Disciples of the Land are tasked with gathering these materials, which are used by Disciples of the Hand to craft the necessary supplies.

Gathering Materials

Speak with Aurvael in the Firmament (X:10.8 Y:14.0) to add the gathering spots for the latest chapter of the Ishgardian Restoration to your gathering log. These locations include those found in the Diadem, which contain materials used in Ishgardian Restoration recipes.

  • The Firmament (X:10.8 Y:14.0)
  • Aurvael

The Diadem

The Diadem is an area exclusively for gatherers and offers items used in Ishgardian Restoration crafter recipes.

Time Limit 180 minutes
Level Requirement Miner/Botanist/Fisher Lv. 10
Number of Participants 1 to 8 Players

Special Weather Conditions

Some items can only be gathered under certain weather conditions. Should such conditions occur, it is the ideal time to seek out these rare items.

Aetheromatic Auger

During forays to the Diadem, you will gain access to the duty action Aetheromatic Auger. In order to perform the action, you must first increase the auger's store of compressed aether by gathering as a miner or botanist. When you have enough compressed aether, you may expend it to unleash a powerful attack against an enemy. Enemies defeated using the auger are known to yield a wealth of resources.

Experience Point Gain

Adjustments are made to experience point gain for each item gathered. To a certain degree, even low-level items will grant experience points appropriate to the player's current level.

Item Inspection

Flotpassant in the Firmament (X:10.8 Y:14.0) will inspect any items gathered in the Diadem.

  • The Firmament (X:10.8 Y:14.0)
  • Flotpassant

Upon inspection, skybuilders' scrips are awarded according to the number of items and their type. Inspected items can also be used in Ishgardian Restoration crafting recipes or sold on the market.


Upon unlocking Ishgardian Restoration, you may speak with Potkin in the Firmament (X:12.2 Y:14.6) to have project-specific crafting recipes added to your log.

  • The Firmament (X:12.2 Y:14.6)
  • Potkin

* Supplies used in the restoration are special items that are always crafted as collectables.

Delivering Supplies

Supplies can be delivered to Potkin in the Firmament (X:12.2 Y:14.6), in exchange for which you will receive skybuilders' scrips and experience points as a reward. Every item contributed adds to the stockpile.
* You can continue making deliveries even after all works are completed, and receive skybuilders' scrips and experience points.

  • The Firmament (X:12.2 Y:14.6)
  • Potkin

When sufficient supplies have been stockpiled, a collaborative task known as concerted works will be scheduled. The details of upcoming works can be found on the skybuilders' board.

The restoration effort is carried out independently on each World, and as such the stockpile is also managed separately.
The restoration status of all Worlds can be viewed at the Builders' Progress Report page below.

Concerted Works

Concerted works are collaborative tasks that see Disciples of the Hand and Land join forces to rebuild a certain part of the Firmament.

Works begin automatically when the appointed hour arrives.

Depending on the objective of the works, participants will be required to perform various tasks, such as transporting and processing materials and erecting structures.

When the progress bar is filled, the works will be completed, and skybuilders' scrips and experience points will be awarded based on contribution.

Successfully completed works will usher in a small change to the Firmament. And as the restoration effort progresses, the opportunity will arise to participate in large-scale works that will bring about dramatic changes.

Kupo of Fortune

Crafters submitting items to the Ishgardian Restoration can participate in the Kupo of Fortune.
* The corresponding class must be level 20 or above.


The Kupo of Fortune is a game of chance that can be played by delivering certain items to Potkin in the Firmament (X:12.2 Y:14.6) and collecting stamps on a voucher.
Once you have collected five stamps, you may exchange the voucher for a Kupo of Fortune card. You may carry up to ten Kupo of Fortune cards. The items that offer stamps vary according to the player's crafter class level.

  • The Firmament (X:12.2 Y:14.6)

How to Play

To play, hand a Kupo of Fortune card to Lizbeth in the Firmament (X:12.2 Y:14.6).

  • The Firmament (X:12.2 Y:14.6)
  • Lizbeth

Upon each card, there are four treasure chests depicted by hexagons─one on the left and three on the right. You may choose one chest to scratch open.
The lone chest on the left offers second to fourth prize, while the three chests on the right offer first to fifth, with the fifth being a consolation prize. The prizes available change each time, and we recommend that you review the prize list before playing.

Skybuilders' Board

On the skybuilders' board, situated in the Firmament (X:11.4 Y:14.1), you will find information such as reconstruction status and the details of upcoming concerted works.

The board will receive updates as the project progresses, so be sure to check it regularly.

Previous steps of the Ishgardian Restoration can be viewed from the skybuilders' board in the Firmament, under Past Progress.

Skybuilder Rankings

For a given period, each player's skyward points are tallied and listed on the Lodestone. The skyward points earned during the ranking period are known as the seasonal score. Players finishing in high ranks will be eligible for rewards and achievements.


Points are earned by submitting or inspecting certain Ishgardian Restoration items.
Accumulated scores are tallied separately for each Disciple of the Hand and Land class and count towards various achievements.

The ranking period lasts from the release of Patch 5.21 until 20 March, 2020, at 6:00 (GMT).
* Rankings are updated each day at approximately 9:00 (GMT).

Seasonal scores are tallied for each class, with rankings divided by World and class.
* Seasonal scores can only be accumulated on a player's Home World.

To view rankings in game, speak with Ludovraint in the Firmament (X:10.6 Y:14.6).

Skybuilders' scrips you earn can be taken to Enie in the Firmament (X:12.0 Y:14.0), who will offer you a selection of wares in exchange.
* You can continue making deliveries even after all works are completed, and receive skybuilders' scrips and experience points.
