    Specialist

    I would like to know how this works from the specialists I am currently an armorer, alchemist and carpenter. I want to know what I earn with the specialties and what I can do differently to jobs that do not have specialties and if I can change after specialties.

    Well before 70 being a specialist didn't mean a whole lot, the extra actions weren't great. But at 70 there's a few specialist only crafts and also a few more meaningful actions to help you make them.

    Specialist does the following:
    1. Grants you multiple skills not available to any non-specialist crafters. Unfortunately the skills granted before lv70 are RNG based and as a result, unreliable when compared to OMNI crafter counterparts. The lv70 specialist abilities are very good.
    Some abilities also have increased reliability when a specialist e.g. Byregot's Brow
    2. Grants you +20 craftsmanship and control
    3. Automatically grants +15 CP buff once the craft has started
    4. Provides exclusive access to the top tier recipes for one patch. e.g. 4.2 will grant exclusive access to new 3* recipes and the current 4.1 2* recipes will lose the specialist requirement.

    With regards to changing specialist. Yes, you can. You can purchase additional Soul of the Crafter items from collectables vendors in Idylshire and Rhalgar's Reach. Then take that the NPS in Ishguard to select your new specialist. You are limited to 3 specialist changes per week.

    (1) Allows you to access the "Whistle While You Work" system. It's not something necessary. The Whistle system was created back in Heavensward to make Specialists more powerful to match the power of omni-crafters. In the end, it's not strong enough to replace omni-crafter's multiple cross class skills, but the system ended up becoming a small edge when you're a specialist. However, it does require some practice to master it, and it is RNG dependent. It also requires the crafting session to be super long in order to work well. So only use it on items with very high difficulty. This was covered by ChameleonMS in his/her point#1.

    (2) Allows you to access the "Triple R's" which cancels out the skill "Initial Preparation". The Triple R's are "Reflect, Refurbish and Reinforce", which are 3 mutually exclusive, but very powerful skills at level 70. This was covered by ChameleonMS in his/her point#1.

    (3) Byregot's Brow becomes 100% in success rate. This was mentioned in ChameleonMS's point #1. Although if you already have Byregot's Blessing from lvl 50 CRP. Then Brow isn't something that is as frequently used as Blessing.

    (4) The Soul of the Crafter crystal which you equip on yourself provides the +20 craft and +20 control mentioned in ChameleonMS's point#2.

    (5) At level 70, it makes the passive skill "Stroke of Genius" occurring at 100% of the times, which adds +15 max CP and fill it up to max for you on the 2nd step of your crafting session. This was mentioned in ChameleonMS's point #3.

    (6) Special 2 star recipes (i320 gear and i325 tools) in Master Book V require specialist status to access. This was mentioned in ChameleonMS's point #4.

    (7) Certain furniture and chocobo bardings in the master books also require specialist status to craft.

    As ChameleonMS mentioned above, you may change your selection of specialist up to 3 times a week, by buying a new empty "Soul of the Crafter" from any Scrip Exchange NPC, and then speak to Alderan at Foundation in Ishgard - The Pillars (14,10).
