Interaction between Disciples of the hand.Follow

After reading the section on the FFXIV SE site it seems to me
that synergy might be introduced.

Its not said specifically, but after reading the different specializations between
the disciples of the hand. It feels like there will be say armorers working with leather
crafters, or goldsmiths to put full items together.

For instance say there is a FFXIV version of the hauby will it incorporate say
the need for a leather crafter and armorer to work together to bring the leather
and metal elements together?

Again I am not saying this is or has been stated will happen.

But if one really reads the descriptions, the way its worded would lead someone
to think of it as a possibility. Or maybe something that could be implemented in
future updates like new abilities, spells, classes, and what not.

This is an open discussion and just a thought I had. If anyone wants to take a gander
go have a read yourself and add some thoughts.

I assumed it to be similar to XI where you can see a chain of progression through the crafts...I'm thinking about weaving so I was interested in the dyes, saw that miners could find saltpeter to be used in creating dyes, maybe that goes to the alchemist to make the dye then comes to me to make some disappointing level1 clothing, but in a cool color! I'm sure there's lots of intertwining of the crafts like in XI.

If you mean 2 different crafters actually synthesizing one piece at the same time, I don't see that. Sucks that I immediately think negative, but what happens if the greedy goldsmith gets the item in his inventory and takes off? Would be interesting with a trusted friend, but even then greed can do strange things to people...

See I was wondering about the latter topic. Like Synergy in XI.

I never got into it and its not really my cup of tea.

I have 100+3 smithing in Xi and that was good enough, and I always farmed or had
mats prepped for me by other crafters.

I would like to work with crafters in XIV but, would like to avoid a synergy system. If
it is something that is being thought about by the SE peeps.
