Custom Deliveries are NPCs that accept turn-ins of specific, dedicated collectables , and award players with gil, EXP and Scrips.
Clients will come to trust you more and more as you complete deliveries and increase their satisfaction level. Upon reaching a new satisfaction level, you will have the opportunity to learn more about them and earn greater rewards from deliveries.
Custom Deliveries were first introduced with Zhloe Aliapoh in patch 3.55a. A new custom delivery NPC is usually added every major odd-numbered patch, making three new NPCs per expansion starting from Stormblood.
Players can unlock Collectables as a system by completing the level 50 quest Inscrutable Tastes. Players start the quest by talking to Morgayne in Foundation (X:10.1 Y:10.4). It requires the prior completion of the level 50 Heavensward MSQ The Better Half.
Additionally, further levels of the Scrip Exchange are unlocked in each expansion, along with that expansion's Custom Deliveries clients thereafter. Once an expansion's inventory is unlocked, it becomes available at all Scrip Exchange NPCs:
Undertaking Custom Deliveries
A detailed explanation of how collectables work in general (with images), can be found at Collectables.
Confirming items sought for delivery
Speak with clients seeking custom deliveries to confirm which items they require that week.
- Each player is limited to a total of twelve deliveries per week, and no more than six deliveries per NPC per week. Eligibility for deliveries will be reset every Tuesday at 12:00 a.m. (PST).
The location of NPCs accepting custom deliveries can also be confirmed on the map and mini-map.
Preparing items for delivery
The items sought by clients fall into three categories: crafted items, gathered items, and fish.
The Custom Deliveries category has been added to the Crafting Log. Five of these items are subject to requests for delivery. The components required to create the items for Zhloe can be purchased from the Scrap Salvager NPC in Idyllshire (X:5.9 Y:7.3).
- Recipes can be confirmed while viewing the Custom Deliveries list by selecting the requested item and accessing the subcommand menu.
Five items have been added to the Gathering Log, which may be requested for delivery by Zhloe.
- The location of these items can be confirmed while viewing the Custom Deliveries list by selecting the requested item and accessing the subcommand menu.
Five new fish have been added to the fishing log, which may be requested for delivery by Zhloe.
- The locations of these fish can be confirmed while viewing the Custom Deliveries list by selecting the requested item and viewing its item description.
Upon delivering the items requested, you will receive a reward of gil, as well as white (and purple when level 90) crafters' or gatherers' scrips. To deliver items you need Disciple of the Hand or Land level 56+. The client's satisfaction level will also increase. Items with a higher collectability will earn greater rewards gil and scrip rewards (the satisfaction gain is fixed, as long as the item meets the minimum collectability requirement).
Raising satisfaction levels
With each successful delivery, clients will come to trust you more, leading to assignments of greater importance. Satisfaction levels are displayed as a gauge atop the Custom Deliveries list. When the gauge is filled to the maximum, the client's satisfaction level will increase. Players will receive rewards upon increasing in satisfaction level, and have the opportunity to learn more about their clients. Upon reaching the next rank, the "story" for that Custom Delivery NPC is advanced, with a cutscene and potentially a quest serving to further that story before the next rank's deliveries are unlocked.
All Custom Delivery NPCs use the same satisfaction scaling, with it taking 3 deliveries to reach rank 2, and 6 deliveries each to reach ranks 3 through 5. As such, each Custom Delivery NPC requires a minimum of 4 weeks to reach Level 5 satisfaction, due to the limit of 6 deliveries per NPC per week. Note that the shared 12 deliveries per week cap amongst all Custom Deliveries means one cannot simultaneously rank up with all of the available NPCs. At most, one can rank up with two NPCs simultaneously without increasing the time to reach rank 5 with each.
