Grand Companies offer players a number of bonuses in Final Fantasy XIV. Provisioning missions reward experience points boosts for Disciple of the Land professions just by turning in the requested items once per day. If you don’t like the backbreaking work of manually leveling your gatherers, then this is the solution for you.

Speak with your Grand Company’s Personnel Officer

All three Grand Companies across Eorzea — The Maelstrom in Limsa Lominsa, The Order of the Twin Adder in Gridania, and The Immortal Flames in Ul’dah — have the same sets of officers at their headquarters. Regardless of who you’re aligned with, you’ll find a Personnel Officer at the counter. Talk to them and select Undertake supply and provisioning missions. The provisioning missions tab will show a list of requested items. You’ll find the number of items you need to turn in, how many experience points you’ll earn, the amount of Grand Company seals you’ll get, and a quantity counter of any items you already have on-hand.

If you want to check these items but you can’t make it to your Grand Company, you can also find this same list within the Timers menu. Select the Next Available Missions option to review this same list. Once you’re ready to turn the items in for your rewards, you’ll have to actually go speak with the Personnel Officer NPC.

Turn in the requested items

When you’re ready, access the provisioning missions list and turn in your items. It’s best to turn in high-quality items when you can, as these offer greater rewards. Go out and gather the items yourself, or buy them on the market board. You can technically just buy your way to max level gatherers this way, as long as you have the gil to spend, and the items are available for purchase. You can do this one per real-life day for each of your gathering jobs. Check the Timers tab or the bottom of the provisioning missions menu to review when you’ll be able to do the next mission.
