Where is the Goldsmith Guild? How to become a Goldsmith? You can become a Goldsmith by visiting the Goldsmiths Guild in Ul’dah. If you have at least L10 in any combat class – you’re good to start deckin yourself out in GOLD(copper)!

Updating your Cooking Gear is quite important if you’re going to be crafting your own leve items. We have a Crafting Gear Guide to help you out on that.

GSM 01: Copper Ingot
GSM 05: 3x Copper Gorget
GSM 10: 12x Copper Rings
GSM 15: Fang Earring & Brass Gorget

GSM 45: (All HQ) Electrum Circlet (Zircon, Amber, Spinel)
GSM 50: (HQ) Black Pearl Ring (Melded with: Piety III Materia)

Just use the above as a quick reference if completing multiple Goldsmith class quests at once.

Levequest Items Discussion?

Every tier has 3 kinds of Leves:

  • [1]Single Submit Leves: Levemete & submission are just a short walk from each other.
  • [C]ourier Leves: Levemete is from the [H]ometown, to be submitted to the [L]ocal Levemete.
  • [R]epeatable Leves.

Notes: [1]Single and [3]Repeatable Leves (1 each) are from the [H]ometown, and [L]ocal levemete. [C]ourier leves will always give the Highest EXP per craft, but require alot of time, and travel costs. [3]epeatable leves will always give the Highest EXP per Leve. If you value your leves alot or don’t have many left, these are good. But, they are thrice as expensive. We will recommend the best [1] and [3] levequest(s) for every tier. Note that this depends on server prices and might not apply to you (Unlikely). We will comment on every tiers [C] levequest but will likely never recommend it. Use [C] levequests at your own discretion! Also, a Precursor item means it requires a fully crafted item AS A MATERIAL.

FFXIV Leveling Guide! Powerlevel quickly! (any class)

How to get EXP fast and powerlevel any DoW or DoM! Get to max level as fast as possible with the least BOREDOM :)

ffxiv general leveling guide tips powerleveling

Leveling up quickly in FFXIV is harder than you thought? We’ve all been there – looking for ways on how to level up faster. Well in this general leveling guide I’ll be listing all ways I know of to make life to max level a little less painful. Just to clarify, this guide is for any combat class. And mostly does not apply to gathering or crafting classes. If you’re a new player, or an old-timer leveling an alt – it’s good to read this to remind yourself on what to do (and maybe learn something new).

Check out: Tips specific for Level 50 to 60

This guide is BEST used along with the class-specific leveling guides:
Are you Leveling up a: Gladiator, Marauder, Conjurer, Thaumaturge, Arcanist, Archer, Pugilist, Rogue, Lancer.
Are you already a: Paladin, Warrior, White Mage, Black Mage, Scholar, Summoner, Bard, Monk, Ninja, Dragoon,
Soon… Dark Knight, Astrologer, Machinist

Is this your first Character?

If yes – then the ultimate advice would be to FOLLOW YOUR STORY QUEST. Don’t stress out too much about random side quests. Keep following your story quest until you do not reach the level requirement, then read more below on how to gain EXP.

Side Quests: give the most bang for you buck in terms of time/exp, next to story quests. They’re also present anywhere you’re doing story quest. So pick them up. Do not linger in a zone to complete side quests. Once your story takes you elsewhere, go.

However, these above two points only apply to your “first” characters… for the rest of us, the below tips serves as a good reminder what to do when you need to gain levels. Ran out of level appropriate sidequests & story quests? Read below.

Level 1+: Challenge Log

This thing is chunky. Maximizing your challenge log is mega value EXP at any level. This is first unlocked at level 16 (15?), and can be abused by any level character thereafter. Completing any entry in the challenge log reaps you some sweet EXP and or Gil. New player? How do I unlock Challenge Log? Players can unlock the Challenge Log by completing the level 15 Rising To The Challenge. (Location/NPC: I’tolwann, Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks (x11,y10)).

Here are the ones we’re aiming for in terms of leveling up a combat class:

challenge log for leveling up preview ffxivDungeons

  • 5x Dungeons
  • 3x Dungeons via Roulette
  • Guildhest
    • 3x Guildhest
    • 10x Guildhest
  • Levequests
    • 4x Unique Levequest types
    • 20x Levequests
  • Player Commendations Given: x5
  • Fates
    • complete FATE in 5 different zones.
    • complete 10x unique FATES.

All of the above give BONUS exp upon completion. It resets every week so you don’t have to rush! You gain bonus EXP depending on your current level, so the higher the better.

 

Level 1 (And every 10 levels after): Hunting Log

Hunting Logs. Basically a list of enemies to kill for large bonus EXP. I would suggest completing these each time you reach levels ending in 5 (5,15,25 etc…). Monsters can be difficult if you rush these, (IE trying to complete your level 20 log once you hit 20 or 21). Aside from dungeons, doing this triggers rested EXP so it gives quite a boost.

Don’t skip Hunting Logs! ALWAYS complete it before entering the next tier (20,30,40 etc). For example, before you hit 40, make sure your tier 3 hunting log is done with. You’ll regret it – trust me.

Level 10+: Guildhests

Starting at level 10, and every 5 levels thereafter, you get to do 2 new Guildhests. These give chunky as hell EXP, and is worth every second you spend queueing. Again for the sake of Challenge Logs, Guildhests contribute to quite a few: 3x Guildhests, 10x Guildhest, and indirectly 5x Player Commendations Given.

If you need to spam Guildhests, “Under the Armor” seems to be the de-facto spamming hest for the population at large.

Daily Roulette: Guildhest gives you 5-10% of your EXP bar.. so theres no reason not to do these.

Surprisingly a lot of people don’t know that the ‘first time completion bonus’ applies to each new class you do it with!

Level 10 to 15: The deadzone

There is a massive lull here for some reason. Remember to leverage all sources of EXP. Leveling up gets significantly easier once you hit 15 so, suck it up for for now. What’s the best way to get to 15? (without outside help)

Fategrinding + Levequests spamming in Aleport: Hands down this is the way.

Level 15+: Dungeons & Duty Roulette

The below image is the very essence of “GET EXP FAST”

ffxiv leveling tips daily roulette low level and guildhest

Dungeons are a massive source of EXP. The only bad thing about these are the queues. So if you’re DPS, you might want to look at other activities while waiting.

Duty Roulette: Low level almost GUARANTEES a level up. You also tick up one on the Challenge Log for dungeons completed via Roulette. This is THE goldmine for EXP and if you just did this once a day you’ll max out every class in no time. (This is first unlocked at level 16).

This is where your rested EXP gets chunked (good thing), and always remember to eat food prior to each dungeon. The 3% bonus EXP is always welcome.

There are 2 entries which relate to dungeons in the Challenge Log: 3x Dungeons via Duty Roulette, 5x Dungeons completed.WHile the bonus EXP isn’t huge – if you do Low level roulette for 5 days you’ll nail both. And you’ll probably have 5 more levels to show for it!

If you have rested exp, dungeons are the best source of EXP. If not then FATES are probably the next best thing…

Fate Grinding

Good ol’ Fates. Or bad ol’ Fates? Anyone whose been around certain has done their fair share of these. Whether you like emor not Fates are a great source of EXP. While you can fategrind in any map, there are generally some maps which are more popular than others. Here’s a quick list to find where you should be at:

10+ WLN Aleport
15+ ETH both sides of the map are serviceable…
20-26 STH Quarrymill
26-32 ELN Costa
32-39 CCH Coerthas
39-44 MD Mor Dhona
45-50 NTH Bluefog / CPP

These are by no means set in stone. Going earlier means better gains in EXP due to chains. However, being underleveled means you cannot solo these fates – so you’re going to need a party. Start one! Or put up a Party Finder! Getting maximum contribution in fates while in a party is much easier and faster compared to solo. The only downside is you cannot queue while in party.

Again, for the value moves, FATEs have 2 Challenge Log entries tied to them: 10x Unique FATES, FATE completed in 5 maps. These are quite easy to fulfill and you don’t even have to go out of your way much for them.

Levequests

While not the fastest method, it fills out the gaps and gives the feeling of changing things up. Thankfully there are two Challenge Log entries related to Leves: 4x unique Levequest types, 20x Levequests completed. Not all levequests are equal: keep in mind that you do not need to kill all enemies – you must simply complete the levequest objective. This leads to some leves taking too long for good value. Keep this in mind when spamming – leave out the sucky leves.

The amount of levequests you can do are limited by your daily levequest allowances. You gain 3 Levequests allowances per 12 hours. This is only relevant when you’re newer or when level caps are raised, otherwise they will stockpile to 100 easily…

protip: 4x Unique Levequest types (Challenge log) can easily be completed by doing regular battlecraft leves and GC leves in any given town which offer them.

protip: 20x Levequests (Challendge log) : if you’re lazy, you can spam 19 low level crafting leves that you can buy from NPC’s, then complete the 20th one with your combat class. The Challenge Log EXP bonus is granted FULLY to the active class, regardless how you spread out the leves.

Small boosts, reminders and tips

ALLOCATE YOUR STAT POINTS: Don’t be like me who discovered I had 15 unused ones when I was leveling BLM. When you’re leveling up, always pick offensive stats. (STR, INT, DEX respectively). Healers pick MND of course… It’s a pretty huge boost! And it’s a lot better than having them un-allocated…

3% EXP from food buff: It may not sound like much but it’s a welcome bonus. You can buy any cheap food from NPC’s (Boiled Egg comes to mind).

Chocobo: While not super effective, having the trusty bird around will make life a bit easier.

Heat of Battle: Free Company boost “Heat of Battle” gives bonus exp % to enemy kills. Awesome for dungeons.

Accuracy problems: This hampers your leveling process more than you think! If you happen to come across gear with accuracy, keep it. Or craft/meld them yourself! Also, cheap accuracy food goes a LONG WAY.

Is there anything I missed? Or anything you want to add? Let us know in the comments!! Good luck leveling up, and hopefully you “have fun”. If you save even an hour by reading this, that’s one hour less lost to the void of leveling! As always, Like us on Facebook for more FFXIV updates!

FFXIV Weaver Leveling Guide (01 to 60)

UPDATED TO 60! “That’s Bolls/Ramie/Cocoon/Mane, I tell ye!” Weaver Leveling to 60 in no time! WVR Levequest Items comparisons and value moves per tier!

ffxiv WVR weaving weaver leveling guide arr

So you decided you wanna be a Weaver ey? Well, don’t believe the rumors. It’s NOT EXPENSIVE AT ALL! With some changes that happened along the way, WVR got a lot easier. I’m sorry for the long first page you can just scroll to the Basics or Leveling begins!

Stylin’ n’ Textilin’ in Ishgard? If you’re [Weaver 50 to 60], Click NAO!

If you’ve been here before and need quick navigation:
WVR Level [0-15] [15-35] [35-50] [50 to 60]

Before you begin…

Where is the Weaver Guild? How to become a Weaver? You can become a weaver by visiting the Weavers Guild in Ul’dah. You just need to reach level 10 in your primary combat class, and you’re good to go!

Ok so we’re in the middle of updating ALL crafting guides – We recommend the use of a few guides during your leveling process, in varied current state of usefulness:

Weaver Levequests List: A table featuring all levequests for ARM 01 to 50. (100% updated)

Crafting General Leveling Tips: This guide was made back right after beta. It’s not updated, but it’s missing two key features: Ixal and Challenge Log. (Old but still useful) (Needs some Mahiko Updates!)

Crafting Gear Guide: is still useful, but written a long time ago. It’s messy but contains a great table as to when you can and should update core pieces. (Old guide, kinda messy(Needs some Mahiko Updates!)

Weaver Class Quest Item Reference:

WVR 01: Hempen Yarn
WVR 05: 3x Hempen Breeches
WVR 10: 12x Hempen Cloth
WVR 15: Cotton Scarf, Cotton Shepherds Slops
WVR 20: Cotton Acton (Materia-enhanced)
WVR 25: (HQ) Undyed Velveteen
WVR 30: (HQ) Velveteen Gaiters
WVR 35: (HQ) Linen Shirt
WVR 40: (HQ) Woolen Tights
WVR 45: (All HQ) Woolen Beret, Woolen Gown, Woolen Gaskins
WVR 50: (All HQ) Patrician’s Bottoms, Patrician’s Coatee, Patrician’s Wedge Cap

Just use the above as a quick reference if completing multiple Weaver class quests at once. The 50 to 60 ones are in that specific section of the guide.

How to use this guide!?

Each listed tier has some self-explanatory sections such as:

  • Next class quest Item required.
  • Relevant Armorsmith levequest locations.
  • ARM Levequests items discussion (tier specific).

We will be using a few amount of ‘codes’ here to make your life easier, as long as you understand them.

  • [H] : HOMETOWN, which in ARMs case is Limsa.
  • [L] : LOCAL levemete. This changes every tier.
  • [C] : COURIER LEVE. From [H] to [L].
  • [RC] : REVERSE COURIER. From [L] to [H].
  • [R] : REPEATABLE , or a “Triple”.

Basic [H] and [L] leves are the BASELINE for value. [C] and [RC] give more than the basics, but require travel time. [R] gives the most of all, but is a massive time and material sink.

In this guide I will try to recommend the best levequest for each type.

Shopping List Method

Weaver: the Beginnings!

[H] 1x Hempen Chausses: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS
[H] 1x Hempen Underpants: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS
[C] 1x Hempen Undershirt: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS
[RC] 1x Hempen Coif: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS
[L] 1x Hempen Halfgloves: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS
[L] 1x Hempen Cowl: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS

**If you choose to, you can buy COMPLETED cloth and yarn from other vendors. It greatly speeds up the process, but you get a little less EXP.

“What is the Courier, Reverse Courier Cycle?” A courier levequest starts from your Hometown (In WVRs case Ul’dah) and ends in the local levemete (In this tiers case Scorpions Crossing). The idea is to get, complete, get, complete in a circle to maximize the EXP of your travel time.

So WVR 01 tier – it’s getting the quest from Ul’dah to submit 1x Hempen Undershirt in Red Rooster Stead, then taking the reverse courier quest from Red Rooster Stead and then submitting 1x Hempen Coif in Ul’dah. This is by the way the fastest+least hassle way to get out of the early tiers.

“How do I get to Scorpion Crossing!?” It’s a non-aetheryte town outside U’dah. Just take the Aethernet to XXX gate and walk a bit outwards.

The other way to spend leves in these low tiers is to “spam the best single leve”. In this tiers case, is to buy materials from the WVR supplier and craft>submit Hempen Halfgloves in Ul’dah.

Weaver Level 05 to 10

All levequest items below have 100% NPC Buyable Materials.

[H] 1x Hempen Tabard: Unnotable.
[H] 1x Amateur’s Dalmatica: Unnotable
[C] 1x Hempen Kecks: Recommended due to high EXP.
[RC] 1x Hempen Acton: Recommended due to high EXP.
[L] 1x Hempen Shepherd’s Tunic: Best single.
[L] 1x Amateur’s Breeches: Unnotable

**Like I mentioned before, you can buy completed cloths and yarns at the expense of EXP. You can even quick synth ‘em.

Courier  <-> Reverse Courier cycle: Nothing much to say here. Materials buyable from WVR supplier (or completed yarns/cloths from other merchants). Doing this cycle yields the chunkiest EXP with the only downside of a little travel time.

Or the best single: While all the items are relatively easy to make and cheap, Hempen Sheperds Tunic might be the ‘easiest’ to make at this point. But don’t sweat the choice between singles in this tier.

Weaver Level 10 to 15

All levequest items below have 100% NPC Buyable Materials.

[H] 1x Cotton Scarf: Unnotable.
[H] 1x Straw Hat: Brainlessly cheap, easy and hassle-free!
[C] 1x Cotton Turban: Recommended due to high EXP.
[RC] 1x Stablehand’s Hat: Recommended due to high EXP.
[L] 1x Hempen Bracers: Unnotable.
[L] 1x Cotton Halfgloves: Unnotable.

Cotton Yarn & Cloth can be bought in: Housing Vendors, Sylph Vendor mainly. (Other vendors sell one or the other only)

Courier  <-> Reverse Courier cycle: With a total cost of 4 Undyed Cotton Cloth and 3 Straw for each cycle, this is dirt cheap. Suck up the travel time and do it.

Or the best single: Damn, Straw Hat needs 3 pieces of straw and a shard. Cheap, easy recipe level, no hassles… this is the go-to single this tier.

Summary of this chunk

Courier / Reverse Courier is best in early tiers

L1: Hempen Undershirt [Ul’dah] / Hempen Coif [Scorpions Crossing] L5: Hempen Kecks [Ul’dah] / Hempen Acton [Scorpions Crossing] L10:  Cotton Turban [Ul’dah] / Stablehand’s Hat [Horizon]

Of course, we also can recommend the best singles:

WVR 1 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Hempen Chausses
WVR 5 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Amateur’s Dalmatica
WVR 10 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Cotton Scarf

FFXIV Culinarian Leveling Guide (Updated 50 to 60)

Before you begin…

Where is the Culinarian Guild? How to become a Culinarian? You can become a Culinarian by visiting the Culinarians Guild in Limsa. If you have at least L10 in any combat class – you’re good to start cookin’!

Updating your Cooking Gear is quite important if you’re going to be crafting your own leve items. We have a Crafting Gear Guide to help you out on that.

Culinarian Class Quest Item Reference:

CUL 01: Maple Syrup
CUL 05: Grilled Trout
CUL 10: 2x Grilled Dodo
CUL 15: Meat Miq’abob

CUL 45: (HQ) Dzemael Gratin
CUL 50: (All HQ) Eft Steak, Beef Stew, Trapper’s Quiche, Crowned Pie

Just use the above as a quick reference if completing multiple Culinarian class quests at once.

Levequest Items Discussion?

For Culinarian: Repeatable Leves are extremely worth it! (Save inventory space)

Every tier has 3 kinds of Leves:

  • [1]Single Submit Leves: Levemete & submission are just a short walk from each other.
  • [C]ourier Leves: Levemete is from the [H]ometown, to be submitted to the [L]ocal Levemete.
  • [RC] or Reverse Courier Leves are from the [L]ocal, submitted to [H]ometown.
  • [R]epeatable Leves.

Notes:  [1]Single and [3]Repeatable Leves (1 each) are from the [H]ometown, and [L]ocal levemete. [C]ourier leves will always give the Highest EXP per craft, but require alot of time, and travel costs. [3]epeatable leves will always give the Highest EXP per Leve. If you value your leves alot or don’t have many left, these are good. But, they are MORE expensive. We will recommend the best [1] and [3] levequest(s) for every tier. Note that this depends on server prices and might not apply to you (Unlikely). We will comment on every tiers [C] levequest but will likely never recommend it. Use [C] levequests at your own discretion! Also, a Precursor item means it requires a fully crafted item AS A MATERIAL.

Useful links to have open: Crafting Gear Guide | Culinarian Leves Guide

Culinarian Level 1-15: The early levels

We DO NOT advise using Leves for these low levels. If you really feel like using leves for these tiers:

CUL 1 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Grilled Trout
CUL 5 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Jack-o’-lantern
CUL 10 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Grilled Carp

You can get to CUL 15 in less than an hour if buy a Company-issue Engineering Scroll. The GC Scrolls These can be bought from your GC’s supplier NPC. Culinarian is a bit different. While you “can” complete your early crafting log for fast EXP, we suggest stocking up on important “Ingots” you will need in the future:

Buy the following items:

  •  32x Rocksalt
  • 32x Distilled Water
  • 16x Mineral Water
  • 33x Rye
  • 99x Beehive Chip
  • 49x Maple Sap
  • 132x Sunset Wheat
  • 38x Buffalo Milk

The above Items can be found in the CUL Guild Supplier.

Then Craft these in order(+GC Scroll):

  •  32x Table Salt (Yields almost 2 stacks of Table Salt)
  • 49x Maple Syrup (Youll be using some for the next step…)
  • 45x Maple Sugar (Made from 15 of the Maple Syrups.. Yields one stack)
  • 33x Rye Flour (Yields 1 stack Rye Flour)
  •  33x Honey (Yields one stack of Honey)
  • 19x Smooth Butter (Yields almost a stack of Smooth Butter)
  • 33x Sunset Wheat Flour (Yields one stack of Sunset Wheat Flour)
  • 16x Pie Dough (Yields nearly one stack of Pie Dough)

It’s up to you on how you want to do this: Quick Synthesis loses alot of EXP, so you wanna manually craft maybe 5-15 of each item then Quick Synth the rest. The reason for this is to make use of these low level crafts to gain EXP while they’re still relevant. You’ll be using any number of these for as long as you’ll be cooking. Yes you can a few of these from other NPC’s, but might as well maximize the exp now.

With Pie Dough, You might want to craft all of it manually.

While completing the Crafting Log might be “better” in terms of leveling, this is a low-impact, AFK friendly (and inventory space friendly) way. Again, you’ll be using all this stuff anyway.

After completing the shopping list above, activate your scroll and be 15++ quick!

FFXIV Alexander (Normal): quick strategy guide

A quick and dirty guide detailing the simple strategies needed for Alexander Normal.

Hey guys! Here’s a quick little guide describing what you need to do in Alexander Normal. Each section will describe one boss, instead of one per page. Their difficulty isn’t that high, and having it all in one place is less of a hassle likely. Will update again tomorrow.

The first trash pile Faust – just burn it and have your OT pick up the adds and run around.

The Oppressor (Alexander Turn 1): Fist of the Father

  • ALARUM periodically spawn. Killing them leaves a field on the ground which minifies you if stepped on.
  • LASERS FROM THE SKY signify a huge missle coming.
  • Kill and leave the field on the laser target: minifying the missle (lol)
  • Avoiding the fly-up AoE: run furthest from its blast radius (remember ultima hm?)

Oppressor 0.5 and original must die within 30(?)s of each other, else wipe.

(Link to savage guide.)

‘Robot Gauntlet’ (Alexander Turn 2): Cuff of the Father

I honestly have no idea of the specifics in this fight. It’s easily doable in 1 pull, although making it faster is the point of doing this fight properly.

  • At least 1 guy should ride a robot. This robot rider has a few responsibilities.
  • Pull bombs away from raid using your pulling skill. Otherwise, raid simply moves away.
  • Riders can apply a VULN UP to mobs, which is mega value. Maxes out at 5 stacks on a mob.

ROBOT SKILLS

(1) Man… I don’t know what exactly this does. Doesn’t seem too good.
(2) An AoE stun that’s pretty good at mitigating damage.
(3) Applies Vuln Up on target. Mega value
(4) Pull. Please, only use this on bombs *wink*

RIDER SETUP
Alot of different setups work, the safest being 1 DPS riding. When his energy level goes low – use the other machine.

Adds? Kill the special looking guys before the chumps, or even spider-tanks. Boomtypes and Jagds kick ass.

(Link to savage guide.)

Living Liquid (Alexander Turn Turn 3): Arm of the Father

This guy has 3 forms which he cycles through for most of the fight.

“Human” form

  • Nothing I remember specifically – just some fancy AoE’s.

Hand form

  • During the “one chunky hand” both tanks should stay in front to share the cleave (Kaliya).
  • Once they split, just burn them. Use some defensive as they stack a resist down debuff over time.
  • Wash Away is a pushback – just get close to the center, or furthers from an edge.

Tornado form

  • Kill adds… nothing too notable.

TETHERS? We didn’t really try many things to cancel it. You get stunned, but otherwise inconsequential if done incorrectly. Feel free to comment. They were easy enough to ignore.

At a low health percentage – the final phase begins. It’s signaled by Cascade, a basic AoE damage skill. Nothing noticeably new here. I’ll check it out again tomorrow.

(Link to savage guide.)

The Manipulator (Alexander Turn 4): Burden of the Father

Choose and kill one leg to kill first. There’s no value in spreading damage as they heal per phase. DPS the manipulator when it comes out.

Deez ballz

  • Blue sign above head signifies where the balls will float towards.
  • 2 sets of 3 balls spawn from the outside travelling towards the point. Does semi-heavy damage, heal through it or cycle party.

Getting sucked in

  • a simple mini-dps check. Kill the add and you escape. Nothin’ else to it.

Healer debuffs

  • Boss casts a red and blue hammer debuff. These two afflicted people cannot touch, else they die.
  • It can spread to new members who were previously unaffected.
  • Obviously, stay away from them at this time.

Tethers (laser)

  • Avoid having one guy eat more than 1. Simply block the line. Best suggestion here is

(Link to savage guide.)

Again, sorry if I couldn’t write a novel about these ‘turns’. They’re quite intuitive, and fun. Don’t expect something too difficult but this little write up will help you out in the days to come. For updates like us on Facebook. Questions? Twitter us. Check us out on YouTube and Twitch.

Alexander: Gordias (Normal) Accuracy Cap

It’s currently impossible to accurately determine this. Wait for data collation. I wonder if this is even needed for Normal Mode. I secretly hope this isn’t needed as it’s a nightmare to obtain, haha.

FFXIV Gathering Rotation (Scrip farming & Collectibles)

How to get deez damn collectibles! If you’re short on collectability 0 find out some basic appraisal rotations here!

Hello guys, a preliminary guide here. Basically I’ll be listing down the rotations I used WHILE LEVELING UP. It’s no use discussing the “real” end-game collectability gathering rotations since we have no idea what numbers we’re reaching for, and how much GP we will actually have. (Yes I know there’s a current BiS… but how long will that last? Will keep an eye out for the recipe unlocks come Alexander). I personally had more than 600 GP, but it’s very unrealistic to make a rotation for LEVELING UP with 650+ GP, since not everyone had a pimped out Foragers Set.

TLDR: Gathering rotations for scrip farming & Collectibles!!!

Navigation:
End-game Gathering Rotations | Leveling up Rotations


Red scrip (470 collectibility) Rotation (variable collects)

Thanks to my FCmate Tiffany Faye for this! This rotation can get at least 2, and up to 4!!!! 470 collectible items! Here’s the basic rotation

  • Reveal with a hit!
  • Discerning Eye
  • Impulsive Appraisal
  • IF PROC, Single Mind. NO PROC? Discerning Eye
  • Impulsive Appraisal
  • IF PROC, Single Mind, NO PROC? Discerning Eye
  • Methodical Appraisal

The above rotation seems damn good for me! While it requires brainpower, the eventual time saved is definitely something. I did not note the min perception needed but please mention your results.

End-Game Gathering Rotations (For now)

I’ll just copy the “1 collect” rotation from below. Since this is as good as it gets for 1 Collect @ 600 GP! Yes I do realize you can go much higher. But that’s for the minute few that have the 700++ GP for it. I’ll post those once I know more of what we need to reach, and how much GP people have on average.

Maximum Appraisal Potency for 600 GP 1 Collect

  • Reveal with a hit!
  • Discerning Eye
  • Methodical Appraisal
  • Discerning Eye
  • Methodical Appraisal
  • Utmost Caution
  • Methodical Appraisal
  • Utmost Caution
  • Methodical Appraisal
  • Collect

!!VERY IMPORTANT!! >400 Appraisal Potency 3 Collect

at 570~ Perception you can easily 3 gather the high grade scrip unspoileds. I use this rotation to do so:

  • Reveal with a hit!
  • Single Mind
  • Methodical Appraisal
  • Discerning Eye
  • Methodical Appraisal
  • Discerning Eye
  • Methodical Appraisal
  • Collect
  • Collect

If you have extra GP, use a Field Mastery. Or try something else. I personally didn’t see the need more than 600 GP in the road to 60~. If you’re a newer player, strive to get 600 GP somehow. Use food, cheaply meld gear… just find a way! These rotations DO NOT USE SINGLE MIND (For low level friendliness), but you’ll be more experienced by then anyway. So these rotations are really there to help those who are a little more confused.

These four basic rotations will help you gather almost any collectible. If you fail with the 1 collect – you’re undergeared.

The goal is you want AS MANY ITEMS as you can with the MINIMUM ACCEPTABLE COLLECTABILITY. So when you’re trying something new – go for the 1 collect. Go for more collects if you feel you can do it!

4 Collect, 250 Appraisal potency:

  • Toil of the Pioneer
  • Discerning Eye
  • Methodical Appraisal
  • Methodical Appraisal
  • Collect
  • Collect
  • Collect
  • Collect

(Macro possible?) If you know of a 4 collect rotation with higher than 250 appraisal potency AT 600 GP, please let me know!

3 Collect, 350 Appraisal potency:

  • Toil of the Pioneer
  • Discerning Eye
  • Methodical Appraisal
  • Methodical Appraisal
  • Methodical Appraisal
  • Collect
  • Collect
  • Collect

(Macro possible?) If you know of a 3 collect rotation with higher than 350 appraisal potency AT 600 GP, please let me know!

2 Collect, 450 Appraisal potency:

  • Reveal with a hit!
  • Discerning Eye
  • Methodical Appraisal
  • Discerning Eye
  • Methodical Appraisal
  • Discerning Eye
  • Methodical Appraisal
  • Collect
  • Collect

Alternatively: Toil, Deep, Method x4, Collect x2 (400 potency, but executes a lot faster!)

(Macro possible?) If you know of a 2 collect rotation with higher than 450 appraisal potency AT 600 GP, please let me know!

1 Collect  Appraisal potency:

  • Reveal with a hit!
  • Discerning Eye
  • Methodical Appraisal
  • Discerning Eye
  • Methodical Appraisal
  • Utmost Caution
  • Methodical Appraisal
  • Utmost Caution
  • Methodical Appraisal
  • Collect

(Macro possible?) If you know of a 2 collect rotation with higher than 500 appraisal potency AT 600 GP, please let me know!

In any case I’m excited for this whole new dimension in gathering! Good luck farming scrips! For more updates and awesome FFXIV updates, like us on Facebook! Ask us anything on Twitter! Check us out on YouTube and Twitch!

Heavensward Dungeons & Trials (Story) Quick Guides

A quick guide about all 3.0 dungeons and trials (storyline)

“If they do not know, teach them.” – Mahiko ‘Mister PUG’ San.

I don’t know what else to say about this page. Since I don’t feel storyline dungeons and trials need a full guide page each, here’s a compilation of all storyline dungeons and trials, with any notes to beat them. ***Forgive me if I use humor***, it’s to keep me sane during this hectic time.

This guide DOES NOT INCLUDE 60+ dungeons and EX primals (Stops at Aetherochemical RF)

Heavensward: Dungeons & Trials
Dusk Vigil | Sohm Al | The Aery | The Vault | The Great Gubal Library
Ravana, Thok ast Thok (Hard) | Bismarck, Limitless Blue (Hard)

Dusk Vigil boss strategy

Dusk Vigil itself has no notable trash mob or map mechanics.

Dusk Vigil boss 1: Elephant

  • Isolate targeted guy. If its you, GTFO from your team. If its your friend, abandon him.
  • He will get wombo combo. It’s fine.

Dusk Vigil boss 2: Ghost

  • He has many ghostly friends.
  • More friends from the beyond.
  • Kill them all, again. Twice.

Dusk Vigil boss 3: Bird

  • He’s casting tornado? Hide behind rocks. You don’t stay in the open in an IRL tornado, do you?

Sohm Al boss strategy

Sohm Al boss 1: Plant

  • Memories of T6… Avoid AoE after eat.
  • Hornet spawn. I assume it’s good to kill. We burned lel.

Sohm Al boss 2: Dino

  • Lookin at you? GTFO.
  • Lots of single spike damage. Keep party healthy.

Sohm Al boss 3: Dragon

  • Marker on top of you? It’s a meteor.
  • Land these on the OUTERMOST EDGE POSSIBLE.
  • Once the marker fades -> move back towards center.

Ravana (Hard) Thok ast Thok strategy

  • Butterfly kill. Fast.
  • Avoid knockback by having an intact wall behind you.
    • That’s 99% of the fight right there.

The Aery Boss Strategy

The Aery boss 1: Skinny Dragon

  • Tether to poles lel.
  • AoE 1: Safe spot is ring inside.
  • AoE 2: Melee proximity knockback.
  • AoE 3: targetted bolts.

The Aery boss 2: Medium Dragon

  • Poison clouds spawn.
  • Mustard Gas eats Clouds.
  • I cant tell you exactly what happens here. I assume killing adds is good. We burned.

The Aery boss 3: Fat Dragon

  • Lookin at you? Move a bit. Leaves fireball.
  • Fireball rush soon after.
  • Free imprisoned friends (Don’t tunnel lel)
  • Keep DRG alive (The NPC, not your bad teammate).
  • Kill add before massacre, stand in shield.

The Vault Boss Strategy

All bosses have random AoE damage and a single spike damage skill. Just keep yer damn party healthy.

The Vault boss 1:  Sword Guy

  • Lots of fancy abilities.
  • Balls explode. lel.

The Vault boss 2: Axe guy

  • Colorful AoE. Do not stand
  • Knockback? Make sure youre NOT behind a ball.

The Vault boss 2: Robot Griest

  • Avoid marching robot (there’s spaces in between)
  • Sickness shall be purged, AoE heals.
  • Kill fireballs asap, they dont have aggro.
  • Avoid firelike “plumes”.
  • Break tethers by spreading apart from friend.

Bismarck (Hard) Limitless Blue strategy

  • Do not fall. (Tornado lel)
  • Shield in center irrelevant if your DPS has a few braincells.
  • Use harpoons -> MUST BE STANDING ON WHALE to DPS #WhalerightsPETA
  • Party takes damage while on whale, AoE heals.
  • Separate adds from each other.

The Great Gubal Library Boss Strategy

Library boss 1: Demon Wall II

  • Avoid the lane AoE.. gives slow n heavy. Demon Wall AK memory.
  • He closes! GO TO THE OTHER SIDE DAMNIT.
  • Ice floor? one press of movement makes you slide.
    • Remove little girl subligar.
    • Wear big girl subligar.
    • Deal with it.

Library boss 2: Bull

  • Fat line AoE? MOVE TOWARD HIM, FOOL!
  • Kill books.
  • Bring tether to boss.

Library boss 3: Refrigerator

  • Step on pink ‘summoning point’ to prevent adds.
    • ALL minipoints must be stood on to prevent adds in that circle.
    • comes in minipoints of 1’s, 2’s then 3’s.

Sorry for the light bordering stupid tone used in this guide. Since story dungeons are pretty damn intuitive, these will make your life a little bit easier. Will refine de-stupidify in the day or two to come. Like us on Facebook, Follow us on Twitter (best way for short questions!), check us out on YouTube or Twitch! “Hey Mahiko, damn this guide sucks!” Well, It’s this or nothing son. Other more high impact guides are being updated, as this quick guide details content which is excruciatingly simple.

FFXIV Mining Leveling Guide (Updated 50 to 60)

MORE UPDATES! to level 50+! Level up Mining Quickly! Mining Quests Items? Finding Mining Nodes? Stop wasting time! Power Level your Miner!

ffxiv-mining-leveling-guide

First of all, you might want to check out our Gathering General FAQ, and Mining General FAQ before you begin. Already familiar? Let’s get to it.

Key Info per section:

  • Mining quest requirement & location.
  • Mining Levequests location / Best leves.
  • Nodes unlocked, and material list.
  • If grinding, what’s the best item to farm? (Most useful)

Are you leveling your Miner 50 to 60? Go there straight. Now.

Navigation: [01-15] [16-35] [36-50] [50-60]

Before you begin…

For those who haven’t even unlocked the mining class: The Miners Guild is in Ul’dah.

Make sure you know all about gaining EXP most efficiently. We have a gathering General Leveling Guide for this. Key points are: Choosing the right levequests (Ones with evaluation can potentially give insane EXP), Keeping key pieces of gear up to date (For getting maximum EXP per node), and making the most out of every node (Using skills properly)

Our Gathering Gear Guide is something you should keep open while leveling up.

Regarding Mining Class Quest Items, It’s ideal to farm for them BEFORE you hit the next quest. (For example, farm Wyvern Obsidian while you’re level 26-29). As a quick reference, we will put all items needed here (They are mentioned again in more detail on every section).

Our Mining Node / Material Locations Guide will help you with this, and when looking for specific items.

Mining Class Quest Items

Miner 1: Copper Ore 10
Miner 5: Bone Chip 50
Miner 10: Obisidan 99
Miner 15: Cinnabar (HQ) 10
Miner 20: Grade 1 Carbonized Matter 99
Miner 25: Effervescent Water (HQ) 15
Miner 30: Wyvern Obsidian (HQ) 15
Miner 35: Raw Amethyst (HQ) 20
Miner 40: Jade (HQ) 20
Miner 45: Electrum Ore (HQ) 20
Miner 50: Darksteel Ore 3

Mining Level 1-5

Mining Quest Level 1: 10 Copper Ore
Mining Quest Level 5: 50 Bone Chips
Level 1 Mining Levequests:
Ul’dah Adventurers Guild & Scorpions Crossing.
Level 5 Mining Levequests: Ul’dah Adventurers Guild & Scorpions Crossing.

Where to find Bone Chips? You can complete both of these quests in one go, to save time.  So make sure you have both sets of items ready before you return to Adelberta (10 Copper Ores, and 50 Bone Chips). If you’re lazy you can also buy this from tradecraft merchant NPC’s (not recommended)

Level 5 Node Locations Unlocked: Central Thanalan (Four Sisters, Stonesthrow) Western Thanalan (Gate of the Sultana)

Level 1 to 5 Mining Nodes and Materials Locations:

Suggested Stockpile:

  • 20 Muddy Water
  • 70 Bone Chip (50 for the quest)
  • 99 Copper Ore (Optional)

This part should be easy. After gathering all of those Bone Chips, you should be well past level 5. Return to Adelberta and claim your rewards and gear upgrades. IF Grinding: farm copper ore.

Mining Level 6-10

Mining Quest Level 10: 99 Obsidian
Level 5 Mining Levequests:
 Ul’dah Adventurers Guild & Scorpions Crossing.
Level 10 Mining Levequests:
Western Thanalan Horizon.

Where to find Obsidian? Yup, 99 Obsidian. Get used to this. You can find Obsidian in Western Thanalan (The East Hammer). Again, you can buy this fron NPC’s but I wouldn’t advise it.

Level 10 Node Locations Unlocked: Western Thanalan (The East Hammer), Central Thanalan (Royal Allagan Starway)
Lower La Noscea (Cedarwood)

Level 6 to 10 Mining Nodes and Materials Locations:

Suggested Stockpile:

  • 20 Tin Ore, Zinc Ore, Soiled Femur,
  • 20 Raw Sunstone.
  • 119 Obsidian (99 for quest)

While 99 Obsidian may seem pretty grindy, getting stacks of materials is something you should get used to. IF Grinding: farm everything equally, except Sunstone.

Mining Level 11-15

Mining Quest Level 15: 10 High Quality Cinnabar
Level 10 Mining Levequests:
 Western Thanalan, Horizon.
Level 15 Mining Levequests:
Eastern ThanalanCamp Drybone.

Where to find Cinnabar? The HQ Cinnabar shouldn’t be hard to get. They’re found in Western Thanalan (Horizon). Remember to use the skill you just unlocked Unearth, which increases HQ gathering chances.

Level 15 Node Locations Unlocked: Western Thanalan (Copperbell Mines, Horizon), Central Thanalan (“Western Thanalan” Exit)

I have to remind you: Unearth is good.
IF Grinding: farm iron ore. LOTS of it.
