Last night I managed to get the Fei Yin chest key and find a treasure chest to acquire the magic tome needed to finish the quest magic of the north to get the scroll of Tele Zvahl.
I've been burning the midnight oil in the Carpenters Guild in San D Oria lately and managed to get woodworking up to 18.
I reached a wall with woodworking, my next synth is silver arrows, which requires, yagudo fletchings, black chocobo feathers, willow lumber, and silver arrow heads. Silver arrows sell for 3-5K a doz. Silver arrowheads sell for 50k for a stack of 99! So I am now working on gold smithing so I can synth my own silver arrowheads.
