About The Salty Toad


Created in January of 2020 by Arcus and Sera Blacke, The Salty Toad FC <<Salt>> is a meme filled, welcoming, LGBTQ+ friendly group, always looking to have fun. We welcome all players, regardless of if you’re brand new to the land of Eorzea, or a veteran getting ready for the next expansion and needing a place to call home. While a number of our members are from the United States, we also have members from other parts of the world, including Australia and Latin America.

The Salty Toad is a tight knit family, and we have members who are always ready to help, whether that’s with dungeons & trials, crafting or any other questions you might have. We’re very active in Discord, and often have many other activities we enjoy together! There’s something for everyone, ranging anywhere from Gold Saucer shenanigans, to end game raiding, to treasure maps and much, much more! Along with spending time in Eorzea, we get together to play a variety of other games, have movie nights and whatever else we find.

If The Salty Toad sounds like the group of players you want to adventure with, feel free to reach out to anyone with the <<Salt>> tag in-game, or check out our Community Finder! Happy adventuring!

Hey there! I'm Sera! I was sucked into the FFXIV community back in February of 2019 by my hubs, and have been in love ever since! My only regret is not starting sooner.

Hello! I first started playing back when the game came back to life after being destroyed by Bahamut, and later dragged my lovely wife Sera into the wonderful world of Eorzea in 2019. I've been switched between being both a DRK & SAM main ever since they were each released, but started my journey through Eorzea on PLD. You can usually find me in raids, whether that's with the raid team I colead with Sera, or random pugs!

Interests: Whiskeys & Cigars
Favorite Dungeon: Any with friends
Favorite Trial: Any with friends
Favorite Raid: Any with friends

My name is Griemhild. I am probably the eldest member and the resident “Grumpy Dragon”, but don’t let that fool you. Even though I have a severe case of RBF, I strive to do anything I can to help other players love this game as much as I do. I joined the Salty Toads January 2020, shortly after their conception and we have been cultivating friendships both in and outside of Final Fantasy ever since.

I'm the Footwear Enthusiast that owns all of three pairs. Having hardly touched an MMO in years, I took the plunge into XIV initially skeptical that I'd stick with it any longer than a week. I've been actively playing for two years now, and have been with Salt since April of 2020. I try my best to give others the same feeling of community that I've experienced with it. Here to help!

Mei "Noodle" Veruna

Forge Master

Interests: Gardening
Favorite Dungeon: Akadaemia Anyder
Favorite Trial: Hells' Kier (Extreme)
Favorite Raid: Eden's Gate: Indundation (Savage)

I’m the blue lizard y'all see either crafting or staring at a retainer bell. I’ve been playing the game since early 2018 on Lamia mostly crafting and casually running content. I transferred over to Behemoth and joined Salt in October of 2020. You can still find me crafting and suffering as a black mage. If you need help with either feel free to ask, I’m glad to help with either!

Favorite Trial: The Minstrel's Ballad: Shinryu's Domain
Favorite Raid: The Burden of the Son

Hii! I'm Ume, I started the game in 2016 but really got more serious about playing in 2018. I transferred to Behe from Aether, though found it hard to find a place for me until I linked up with Salt in April of 2020! I'm down to help out with most things. I love to rp and raid, though I do really just love to help people, just give me a shout!

Sup, Red's the name and dying my clothes red is the game. I joined Salt in August of 2020, and I am glad I did because I was able to find a place I call home. Been a Monk main since Day 1 and I haven't looked back since. Wanna PVP? I'm down. Wanna raid? I'm down. Wanna cry? I'm down. I'm here for anything you need so don't be scared to ask! I'm looking forward to meeting all the new faces we recruit now or later!

Noltz D'elf

Deep Canal Raider

Main Jobs: WAR, BRD
Interests: Motorcycles
Favorite Dungeon: The Vault
Favorite Trial: The Navel (Extreme)
Favorite Raid: Eden's Verse: Furor (Savage)

I'm the elf that drank too much milk and grew muscles. I've been playing the game since 1.0. I come back every now and then during expansion releases but never really sticked to it, until Shadowbringers when I joined Salt in April of 2020, not knowing the great community I was about to experience. If it were not for them I would most likely finish MSQ, get bored, and stop playing. I love to joke around in a harsh way, it's all in good fun so anything I say please know it is not ill intended. Have a great time and enjoy life!

Rhea Sylvia

Honeybee

Main Jobs: BRD, BLM
Interests: Music™️, Physical Media, Keyboards
Favorite Dungeon: Hell's Lid
Favorite Trial: The Seat of Sacrifice (Extreme)
Favorite Raid: The Epic of Alexander

Hieeeeeee <|:•) I've been playing XIV since 3.2 - sporadically until 4.1, and consistently ever since. I joined Salt in September 2020 shortly after joining our leaders' raid group. My in-game focus is primarily on endgame PvE; I aim to clear all difficult content and be at least competent on every job. That said, I dip my toes into almost every piece of content in the game. If you've got a question about the game, I can probably answer it, and if I can't, I can point you towards someone who can.

    General Rules

    1. Always be friendly and respectful! No bullying, homophobia, racism, sexism, or any other type of abuse. Bullying and/or of any type will not be tolerated. Officers will use their judgement in removing posts deemed to be inappropriate. If you have a question about why a post was removed, please reach out to an officer. If you have an issue with someone, try to work it out together. If you can’t resolve it, PM an officer to help mediate.

    2. Please be sure to be aware of each other’s comfort when discussing potentially uncomfortable topics, (eg. religion, politics, etc). If at any point someone becomes uncomfortable with a conversation, please be respectful of that and either move the conversation to another channel or end it for the time being.

    3. Absolutely no participation in RMT (real money transactions) are allowed. The use of third party parsing applications, such as ACT is not to be used to treat other players poorly or harass them, regardless of whether they are or are not in the FC.

    4. If you join the Discord, nickname yourself to incorporate your in-game name so that everyone knows who we are speaking to. If not given a role, please let an officer know so we can assign you Salty Toad or Honorary Salt as needed.

    5. Please use voice channels appropriately. Be aware and try not to talk over each other. If a group of members are running a duty, please use one of the duty channels. Everyone deserves respect and a chance to be heard.

    6. Please use appropriate tags within the discord, (eg. @Party-Finder, @Movie Night, etc.)
    7. Any and all NSFW content must always go in the NSFW channel. If you don’t know if it belongs there, then it probably does. Never post any NSFW content in general chat.
    Horny Jail is our NSFW VC. If you look at a stream in there, understand it could be NSFW.

    8. Any spoiler content should be posted in the spoiler channel with spoiler tags. Everyone is at different places in the game, and while mistakes happen, let’s try to keep the story a surprise for those still working through it.

    9. Please be active. Obviously, real life always comes first, and you can’t necessarily be on every day or even week or month. But if you are going to be gone for an extended period of time, please reach out to an officer so that we can change your rank to Sleeping Salt in discord and in game. Members who are inactive for 90 days without giving notice will be subject to removal. Those who request the rank of Sleeping Salt are given 180 days of inactivity before being subject to removal.

    10. Finally, even if not explicitly stated, be sure to not try to bend the rules. Don’t start drama. We want this to be a fun and friendly community for everyone! The officers reserve the right to use our judgement to maintain a healthy environment for everyone.


    FC Chat Conduct

    ✧ Always be courteous and respectful of others!

    ✧ Never discuss spoilers in FC chat. Everyone is at different places in the story and deserve to experience it at their own chosen pace.

    ✧ Hot topics should be kept out of FC chat. Everyone within the Free Company should be able to feel comfortable. Bigotry is never allowed and will not be tolerated at any point.

    ✧ No arguing in FC chat. If you are having a disagreement with someone, take it to private channels. If you cannot resolve it on your own, feel free to reach out to the officer team.

    Most importantly, happy adventuring!

    The Workshop


    Welcome to The Workshop!

    Here we help out our FC members who need help with everything crafted! Whether that's with getting new gear, glamour or housing items, we can help! We can even help you find your own way to getting your crafters leveled and geared! As a member of The Salty Toad, you can use our FC Member Discount. All the details on our Workshop program can be found below!

    Pricing Structure

    ✧ For single-item craft requests, there is no cost if you also provide 100% of materials.
    ✧ For new players needing gear to get through dungeons and the story, crafters may choose to craft gear at no cost, regardless of if any materials are provided or not.
    ✧ For crafts with no materials provided, but are acquired through Fishing, Mining or Botany, the craft cost will be 65% of the current Behemoth market value.
    ✧ For crafts with no materials provided, but are acquired with tomestone or scripts purchase, the craft cost will be 80% of the current Behemoth market value.
    ✧ For crafts with no materials provided, and require a rare drop item acquired from treasure maps or Extreme primal farming, the cost will be 100% of the current Behemoth market value.

    Note: Primal weapons and other primal items require rare drops from Extreme fights, along with demi-materia. For example, the Augmented Hades weapons require the Hades's Auracite which drops from The Minstrel's Ballad: Hades's Elegy. If this item is provided but no other materials are, the cost will be based on the cost of the other materials purchased by the crafter. Additionally, certain glamour items require materials only available from completing treasure maps. If the materials dropped from the treasure maps is provided and nothing else, the cost will be based on the cost of the other materials purchased by the crafter.

    Bulk & Complex Orders

    In order to respect the time and efforts of our Workshop team, we've set up rules regarding bulk, difficult and time consuming orders. A full set of level 80 Exarchic Battle Gear can take two hours and up to complete, depending on how many materials are required, and how many are provided. Additionally, for all bulk and/or complex orders, we do require a 50% deposit to begin the craft and ensure the crafter's time is respected.

    ✧ If basic materials (pre-crafts) are provided, an additional 10,000 gil per current 3 star item requested will be added to the cost. For instance, head, body, pants, boots and belt is 5 items and therefore 50,000 gil.
    ✧ If only raw materials are provided that must be turned into basic materials, there will be an additional 2,000 gil charge per 2 or 3 star pre-craft that is unable to be crafted via quick synthesis.
    ✧ For all bulk orders (stacks of raid pots, food, etc), we require a minimum of one week advance notice. Additionally, there will be a 10,000 gil surcharge to the entire order.

    Placing Your Order

    If you need to place a crafting order, please send a /tell or Mogmail to any member of the Free Company with the "Salt Artisan" rank, submit an order via the "Crafting Request" text channel in The Salty Toad Discord, or send a request using the form below. Please include what item(s) you need crafted, as well as what materials you are able to provide for the craft, your preferred delivery method (trade, Mogmail) and your preferred communication method (/tell, Mogmail, Discord). In the event that you cannot provide any materials, The Workshop will inform you of the cost once your order has been reviewed.

    ✧ For a list of materials required to craft an item, please visit Garland Tools.

    Order Times

    Generally, single-item craft requests can be finished quickly and will be complete in 24 hours or less. For larger, more complex or bulk orders, these could take several days, and as such, The Workshop will give an approximate wait time once your order has been reviewed. Once complete, you will be contacted and your order delivered via your preferred delivery method.

    Disclaimers

    Please note, mistakes can be made on either side. We've created The Workshop Program to help the members of our Free Company and community, in a way that keeps it fair for all involved. If a crafter makes a mistake, The Workshop will ensure that it is noted and fixed. The abuse of the system or the kindness of our crafters will result in future inability to use the services of The Workshop. If a member or crafter does not follow the above guidelines, it will be reviewed by the Leadership Team.

    If you are an omnicrafter who wishes to take part in The Workshop Program, please reach out to Mei Veruna or one of the other members of the Leadership Team for instructions!
