Can you guys tear it apart for me and let me know if I got anything wrong? I've only ever repaired my bone hora, so I could be missing nuances to the repairing of items.

What do you mean? There is a section for Repairing Yourself there. What is unclear?

You can have another player repair your item as well as repair it yourself should you have the right skill and items.

To seek repairs from another player, go to your Inventory, then select the item, and click the Seek Repairs button. A window will pop up that will ask you to set the offer in Gil or Items. Once you select your offer, you will now have a bazaar bag next to your name and hopefully your offer is enticing enough for some crafter to repair it for you. This is obviously a downfall since you must have a crafter come along and do the repair for you.


I might be wrong but I think you need to unequip the item to be able to put it up for repair.

He's right, it's not clear what you're implying. He is referring to the repair NPC option, which provides synthesis support for whatever crafting job you've got equipped at the time you talk to him.

I think they might be refering to:

Frankly repairing is just a nuisance in games and Square just made it way harder then any game out there. I gave up after two days trying to repair my gear and just located the 3 repair npc's. Even it they can't repair my gear up to 100% having it repaired enough to use my gear was good enough for now. Even with crafters making better gear, finding it is another story. Until my character actually has 'Good' gear no point in running around gathering crap and switching to several crafting jobs which takes forever to to.

While this may not be inline, one thing to mention might be to assume when attempting to determine a price when requesting a repair, that the person performing the repair has to supply the repair ingredient. So your price should reflect that.

I have had a few cases where I have run into people requesting repairs for items that cost me more to repair than I got paid for. I currently do it anyways because the game is new, and I know how much of a pain it is. And I definitely will not attempt a repair at my level if the cost is at or near the price of ingredients, as one failure makes it a painful loss for me. While we do get some exp out of it as well as the gil, it's usually 1/4th the exp for a single synth at the level of repair.

Also, if you are shouting for a repair, if you mention you have the repair ingredient on you, you will get help much faster (I have also ignored or turned down repairs because I don't have what I need for it on me).

Also a note that you can not bazaar items that have taken a single point of damage until the item is repaired would be good.

Also, when any player is repairing you will have one of the following three things happen: Either the repair will fail, and the item is in the same condition (you lose the ingredient), a partial repair occurs (item is not at 100%, and the ingredient is lost), or a full repair occurs (the item is now 100%, and the ingredient is lost).

Great guide:). Definitely a very concise and well-descript tutorial on how the repair system works

The section detailing having others repair the items for you. They have to be unequipped first. Then you can seek repair only if you have free slots in your bazaar.

From the crafter's side, they have to equip the repair job then access the person's bazaar to perform the repair.

The person performing the repair must have the materials needed for the repair. I.E. they cannot be in your posession while someone else is doing the repair. You can only offer cash for the repairs, so yo ucannot give them the items as part of the repair advertisement.


When performing the repairs yourself, you again mus unequip the item then select it in your inventory and select repair. You cannot repair it trough the synthesys menu.
Prior to performing the repair you can speak with the npc and request access to thefacilities for a fee. This will give you a crafting buff for the currently active crafting profession. If you switch classes you will need to ask for it again for the respective class.

Unequipping gear:
Main Menu->Gear->select item->unequip
If anyone knows of a shorter procedure that would be great. You cannot seek repair from the equipment screen.

Nice guide. There really isn't much more to say to that.
As Hugus already stated "Perform your own repairs" gives you the option to use the guild support of your current class to make repairing easier.

Something I'd like to know though is if you got to have the class by which an item was produced at the same level you need to produce it in order to repair that item or if it can be lower.
It would make sense if it would work like that since it's easier to repair a hole in a shirt than make a new shirt.
I couldn't test this yet because I've been making my own gear but maybe someone could clarify that for me.

THAT would be great. Along with an indicator in your equipment window that shows which item is damaged and how bad.

does anyone else think its absolutely crazy that requesting a repair requires TWO(2) slots in your bazaar?????? one slot for the gil you are offering... the other for the actual item...this should have its own set of slots! and the gil offered should be in the same slot as the item... am i alone in this?

I hate trying to buy things with your bazaar. If I want to buy 100 fire crystals, I actually have to have 100 fire crystals in my inventory. THEN when I ask to buy 100, it takes the 100 I have and puts it in my bazaar so I cant even use them. How ridiculous is that?

I have to think this is a bug or an oversight as it does not make much sense to me.

Next, go to your Inventory, select the item you wish to repair, and click the Repair button. You will notice next to the repair button how much wear your item has accumulated.

Thank you sir!!!

This is incorrect, you can offer items for the repair. However, the crafter still needs the repair item in his inventory beforehand (you can offer to replace the repair item, not provide it).

For the guide itself, the section titled "Perform your own Repairs" (the NPC option): This gives you facility access in general; you can do regular crafting with it too, not just repairs.

Good point, i worded that one wrong. You cannot offer the repair items for them to repair it with using the seek repair interface....

Thanks for correcting that!

I'm also curious to know whether you have to be at the rank required to craft it, to repair it properly. I repaired my harpoon as a rank 5 carpenter (to make it requires rank 8 carpentry), but I failed two attempts before succeeding on the third. It's just nice to be prepared for when repair materials start getting expensive!

Some lower, some higher. I can make Bronze Celatas but I cannot repair them yet. I could make and repair Bronze Haubergeons but I made a +1 one and I couldn't repair it for a couple levels.

Lastly I repaired my Iron Doming hammer with ~12 BSM.

could repairing be linked to the mats level? Example, lets say the bronze hauby, it require bronze rings, if you can make bronze rings you can repair bronze hauby?

I think it should be mentioned that at this time Repair NPCs cannot fix jewelry such as rings, earrings, and bracelets/wristlets. To repair these you must do it yourself or have another crafter fix it. Also you don't necessarily need to have leveled a craft that far to repair some gear. I was able to repair a copper choker using Goldsmith R1 and having no prior experience on the first try. However I'd imagine that some of the stronger gear that requires the higher up stuff (Dodo/Buffalo, Brass/Iron, Cotton/Canvas, etc.) to repair may require you leveled a craft a bit further for a successful repair.

EDIT: Also note that it's not really worth repairing your undergarments yourself, for about 1K you can buy new undergarments (shirt and shorts/panties) from various NPCs in different cities. A stall near the Adventurer's Guild in Ul'dah sells underwear for Hyur and Lalafell, where the other races are I'm not sure...
