Alchemy Guide by Immortality for Skill not Gil

This is a note that all my guides are written for the express intention of obtaining skill with disregard to money spent, if the skill up craft recipe makes money that's a bonus side effect.
That being said you will want advanced synthesis support from the guild in order to control breaks.
This is a requirement until you are within 5 levels of a recipes cap. You will not get skill ups on breaks if you are more than 5 levels from the cap.
Nearly every recipe I'll use comes from ingredients you can get from shops.

You can farm elemental clusters in Sky or in Sea if you have access.
