How to Unlock the Scrip Exchange and Collectables

This guide explains how to unlock the Scrip Exchange and Collectables for crafters and gatherers in FFXIV.

Overview

At level 50, crafters and gatherers can unlock a feature called Collectables. These are unique items that can be crafted and gathered, then exchanged for a currency called scrip. Scrip can be used to purchase materia, gear sets, Folklore Tomes (which unlock special gathering nodes), and more. This page explains the steps to unlock collectables and scrip.

Before you can unlock scrip and collectables, you need to level up a crafter or gatherer class to level 50, and complete the Heavensward Main Scenario Quest "The Better Half".

After you meet the above requirements, you can go to Ishgard, at Foundation (x:10.2, y:10.5), and talk to Morgayne to start the quest "Inscrutable Tastes". Complete this quest to unlock Collectables. Talk to any Collectable Appraiser to see a list of collectable items that you can craft and gather, as well as the number of scrip you will receive in exchange. The list of collectables is also available in your Crafting Log and Gathering Log (Main Menu > Logs) by clicking the tab beneath the search box. After you turn in collectables, you can talk to any Scrip Exchange or Splendors Vendor to exchange scrip for items.
