Simply put, a weaver transforms thread into cloth and cloth into clothing. More specifically, Weavers craft light, flowing garments such as robes and coatees--the kind favored by mages and craftsmen. While a novice weaver should focus on producing serviceable wares, we expect our more experienced members to blend form with function. But regardless of one's experience, a weaver must ever strive to hone his craft if he wishes to achieve and maintain success.
Weavers create fiber and fabric from base materials before using them to sew and stitch the vast array of garments worn by all. From fiber to thread, thread to cloth, cloth to dress, the path of these artisans literally weaves its way from basic beginnings to extravagant ends. Just as the Spinner, Nymeia, spins the fates of all Eorzeans, the warp and weft of a weaver's work, too, have been known to alter the course of destinies both large and small. This holds truest in the city-state of Ul'dah, where appearances are considered akin to reality, and where master weavers wield tremendous influence.
From fiber to thread, thread to cloth, cloth to dress, the path of a tailor literally weaves its way from basic beginnings to extravagant ends. And while this alone can prove a long and arduous journey, a weaver’s work spans more than just the spinning of strings and the sewing of seams.
Those who wish to excel as clothcrafters must also stay attuned to the latest fashion trends, ensuring their custom are never scoffed by their peers for looking anything less than posh. Just as the Spinner, Nymeia, spins the fates of all Eorzeans, the warp and weft of a weaver's work, too, have been known to alter the course of destinies both large and small. Perhaps this is why so many of the realm’s tailors pay homage to the fickle goddess.
Weavers can create various garments made from textiles, such as light armor for the Disciples of Magic. They can also process the various plants and certain animal fibers into spools of yarn and cloth, which are often needed by armorers and leatherworkers for bulkier armor.
Weavers use needles as their primary tool and spinning wheels as their secondary. Their armor is primarily made up of "Crafting" gear that they share with other disciples of the hand. Crafting gear provides bonuses to the craftsmanship, control, and CP attributes. Craftsmanship and control respectively improve their progress and quality gains when crafting. CP is the resource they use in place of MP for their abilities.
