—-Ninja Edit – Note that the below information is now dated. Undergarments no longer take damage in FFXIV due to a recent patch ~ Katella ——
One of the thoughts that often pop up in my head while playing FFXIV, is how they have made certain things kind of realistic to a certain extent. Some common sense things, that are just a good idea in real life, will pop up in game and make me laugh. One such aspect is listening to Mother’s age old advice about the importance of changing our skivvies.
When mine started to wear out, I was quite perplexed as to how to fix it. Square Enix proving to be most modest, doesn’t support the idea of adventurers running through town going commando (thankfully!). We don’t yet have mog houses or dressing rooms, so I guess it makes sense that you wouldn’t be able to unequip it out in public. People get arrested for things like that.. ^^
Since I couldn’t unequip it, and I can’t sew up the holes while I’m wearing it, I was at a loss. I asked a few people, and no one I talked too knew how either. Many said “when you figure it out.. let me know.” LOL!
Well a little research later, and I figured out what should have been common sense. Honestly, its always a good idea to have a second pair of skivvies. The only way to repair your undergarments is to have a second pair to equip while you are sending the ones you’ve been wearing to the wash, and repairing them. Mom’s advice rings true!
The second part of this, is simply the trick of obtaining a second pair of skivvies. Where do you go? One must be pretty picky about one’s undergarments you know. Sometimes unfortunately you may find that you have to take a journey dedicated to just that goal. There are recipes for crafting your own undergarments on eorzeapedia’s wiki site if you are interested.
Here is a link to Eorzeapedia’s most helpful wiki:
Otherwise, If its more of an emergency, and you don’t have the items or the class required to repair your skivvies just yet (and rather than having the local Repair NPC do a sub-par job) you can opt to just purchase a new set.
