Archer Leveling – 01 to 30

If this is your first character:
MAIN SCENARIO QUEST IS YOUR FIRST PRIORITY.

Just became and Archer huh? Start sniping your hunting log. A level one character doing hunting logs + participating in level appropriate FATES is super value THIS EARLY IN. The entire ARC Tier 1 hunting log can be found in Central and North Shroud. (You can do this while queued up for POTD).

You can refer to the table above regarding “what to do” after that.

L1 Skill UnlockedHeavy Shot: For all intents and purposes – your basic attack.

L2 Skill UnlockedStraight Shot: Gives a passive bonus to critical strike chance when you do it. Always keep this buff up on yourself!

L4 Skill UnlockedRaging Strikes: A hefty DPS cooldown. Use it on large packs, or on fat guys.

L5 ARC Class Quest – check in on your guildmaster in Gridania – Archers’ Guild. These spawn every 5 levels up until 50, and can give you notable rewards (besides, you NEED to do them to become a Bard).

L6 Skill UnlockedVenomous Bite: Your first Damage over Time (DoT) skill! Always open with this (or refresh it) if the enemy is going to survive for more than a few attacks.

L8 Role Actions unlocked!

L8 Trait UnlockedHeavier Shot: There’s a small chance your Heavy Shot causes your next Straight Shot to be an auto-crit. This is easily indicated by your Straight Shot icon blinking. It would be good practice to have this very obvious in your HUD.

L8 Role Action slot I unlockedSecond Wind: No choice but to pick this one up – it’s great for soloing in any case. A self-heal is always welcome, and every little bit of downtime reduced, or death prevented, is value.

L10 Skill UnlockedMisery’s End: An “execute” that can only be done when the target is low. Use whenever able.

L10 ARC Class Quest – check in on your guildmaster in Gridania – Archers’ Guild.

L10 Hmm... Guildhests?

L12 Skill UnlockedBloodletter: A very important “off-gcd” (OGCD) skill. Use it as often as you can since it’s “free”. It’s a signicant part of your future rotation – I suggest making it very obvious in your HUD when Bloodletter is available to use.

L12 Role Action slot II unlocked Foot Graze: Pretty terrible for soloing. Has a niche use to bind enemies so they cant attack you while you interact. Not too important of a skill, don’t stress out to find a good bind for it.

L15 ARC Class Quest unlocks Repelling Shot: check in on your guildmaster in Gridania – Archers’ Guild. Repelling Shot is a repositioning skill that has only a few niche practical uses. While soloing just use it to “prevent getting hit for a bit”. It’s useful in raids to quickly spread out from your friends.

L15 Unlocks - Duty Roulette Leveling

L16 Role Actions Slot III UnlockedLeg Graze: Not too bad for soloing tougher mobs, but admittedly quite poor overall. You don’t have much of a choice but put it in your role actions for now, but like its predecessor don’t stress out to find a good bind for it.

L17 Unlocks - Challenge Log

L18 Skill UnlockedQuick Nock: Your first Area of Effect (AoE) skill. It does good damage on packs larger than 3. Be wary of its hefty TP cost. It has a deceptively long reach (much more than the skill shows), but the cone isn’t as wide as people initially presume.

L20 Role Actions Slot IV unlockedPeleton: AMAZING for soloing (dungeons too) and movement in general. It has a small cooldown so use it ALWAYS. You’ll be surprised how much time this cuts in towns, and in scenarios wherein you wouldn’t want to mount up. Keep note it doesn’t stack with sprint.

L20 ARC Class Quest – check in on your guildmaster in Gridania – Archers’ Guild.

L24 Role Actions Slot V unlockedInvigorate: Sickeningly good for dungeons (where spamming Quick Nock happens alot), Invigorate is part of many DPS classes repertoire in the endgame.

L25 ARC Class Quest – check in on your guildmaster in Gridania – Archers’ Guild.

Once you hit level 30 FULL STOP! It’s time you evolve into a job class – in your case that’s Bard (BRD)! The prerequisites to unlocking the quest are simply finishing ALL ARC class quests up to level 30.

L30 Class quest unlocks Windbite, and the prereq for Bard:

Windbite: is your other DoT skill – Windbite and Venomous Bite play a vital role in Bard DPS. Open with both DoTs and refresh them if the enemy will live for more than a few hits.

Completing this quest marks your final class quest as Archer. You now have the right to become a Bard!

How to become a Bard?

The quest to become a Bard is A Song of Bards and Bowmen, found in Archers’ Guild. Completing this quest gives you Soul of the Bard, and Mage’s Ballad skill.

Soul of the Bard is your job soul crystal. To become a Bard you merely have to equip it (it’s on the lower right most equipment slot). Equipping the soul crystal is a tiny bit of a hassle since you have to rebind your skills, and reconfigure your equipment set. But it’s okay since you’ll likely never be a Archer again.

And with that YOU’RE DONE WITH LEVELING Archer! Congrats! Feel free to proceed to the Bard Leveling Guide. Hopefully our Archer Leveling Guide helped you out. May your arrows always find their mark!

FFXIV Conjurer (CNJ) Leveling Guide

How to level up your Conjurer (CNJ) fast! Learn all about your skills, role actions, and how to level up HERE!

So, you wanna be a healer huh? If you’re planning to level up Conjurer you’ve come to the right place! Our Conjurer leveling guide will definitely help you speed things up!

This page is strictly for Conjurer – focusing more on CNJ specific info like skills, traits, and playstyle notes. The GENERAL PROCESS that you should be following is outlined in our GENERAL LEVELING GUIDE: Which you should be using ALONGSIDE THIS GUIDE.

Conjurer: Unlocking, and other basics

Leveling Methods, References and Reminders

In these boxes, I’ll put info that you’ll likely be referring to (or discovering) while leveling up your Conjurer.

Last but not least of these reminders, always logout at a sanctuary. It’s noted by the moon icon on the right side of your EXP bar. You gain rested EXP in these areas!

Conjurer Leveling – 01 to 30

If this is your first character:
MAIN SCENARIO QUEST IS YOUR FIRST PRIORITY.

L1 Skill Unlocked Stone: Your bread and butter damage spell. This is pretty much your “basic attack”.

L2 Skill UnlockedCure: Your first heal, but by no means worst! It’s super mana efficient – and this remains true for all of time!

L4 Skill UnlockedAero: Damage over time (DoT) spell. Don’t use or refresh it on enemies that die very quickly. For the most part, it’s a great spell to open fights with.

L5 CNJ Class Questcheck in on your guildmaster, E-Sumi-Yan, in Old Gridania – Conjurers’ Guild. These spawn every 5 levels up until 50, and can give you notable rewards (besides, you NEED to do them to become a White Mage).

L8 Role Actions unlocked!

L8 Role Action slot I unlockedCleric Stance. This has “some” use leveling up… It’s not the best but it’s something… 5% isn’t relevant this early on.

L10 CNJ Class Quest – check in on your guildmaster in Gridania – Conjurers’ Guild.

L10 Skill UnlockedMedica: Is your basic Area of Effect (AoE). The AoE centers around you. Usually only good when at least 3 people need a heal.

L10 Hmm... Guildhests?

L12 Skill UnlockedRaise: Resurrects a dead ally, but has a hefty cast time. Rumored butt buddy of Swiftcast.

L12 Role Action slot II unlocked – Break: I have mixed feelings for this. It’s great as an opener, but would you do it over Stone? Even in a raid scenario, it’s very unlikely that this is the best source of the Heavy debuff. Overall it’s quite poor.

L15 CNJ Class Quest unlocks Fluid Aura: check in on your guildmaster in Gridania – Conjurers’ Guild. Fluid Aura pushes an enemy away from you. Great for interrupting while soloing. Be wary using this in dungeons as repositioning annoys people. In the case dungeons, it’s great for pushing ranged mobs towards tanks, and interrupting mobs near walls for minimal movement.

L15 Unlocks - Duty Roulette Leveling

L16 Role Actions Slot III unlockedProtect: FREE PASSIVE DEFENSES! Reconfigure your role skills as to put this at the very first slot. Needless to say keep it up on yourself (and your party members) at all times.

L17 Unlocks - Challenge Log

L18 Skill UnlockedStone II: Replaces Stone as your basic DPS skill. Nothing fancy, just a (VERY WELCOME) increase in damage.

L20 Role Actions Slot III unlockedEsuna: is “only useful when it’s useful”. Removing debuffs doesn’t happen often but you’ll be thankful you had Esuna when it does happen. Put this on the second slot.

L20 CNJ Class Quest – check in on your guildmaster in Old Gridania – Conjurers’ Guild.

L24 Role Actions Slot III unlockedLucid Dreaming: is your best friend. Provides a large mana regeneration buff. Put it on the third slot.

L25 CNJ Class Quest – check in on your guildmaster in Old Gridania – Conjurers’ Guild.

L26 Skill UnlockedRepose: Sleeps an enemy (it wakes up if you hit it). Useful for quests where you interact with things, preventing mobs from bothering you. Doesn’t see much use these days.

Once you hit level 30 FULL STOP! It’s time you evolve into a job class – in your case that’s White Mage (WHM)!
The prerequisites to unlocking the quest are simply finishing ALL CNJ class quests up to level 30.

L30 Job quest unlocksCure II, and the prereq for White Mage (WHM)

Cure II: Is your “big heal”, it is not as mana efficient as C1 but it gives a chunky amount of healing. When to use Cure I or Cure II is a bit of a topic, but let me simplify it for now by saying “Either your tank is taking massive damage, or you wanna save a GCD”.

Completing this quest marks your final class quest as Conjurer. You now have the right to become a White Mage!

How to become a White Mage?

The quest to become a White Mage is Seer Folly, found in Conjurer’s Guild. Completing this quest gives you Soul of the White Mage, and Presence of Mind.

Soul of the White Mage is your job soul crystal. To become a White Mage you merely have to equip it (it’s on the lower right most equipment slot). Equipping the soul crystal is a tiny bit of a hassle since you have to rebind your skills, and reconfigure your equipment set. But it’s okay since you’ll likely never be a Conjurer again.

And with that YOU’RE DONE WITH LEVELING Conjurer! Congrats! Feel free to proceed to the White Mage Leveling Guide. Hopefully our CNJ Leveling Guide helped you out. I main White Mage (and play all healers), lemme tell you that this is a rewarding path you chose!

Marauder Leveling – 01 to 30

If this is your first character:
MAIN SCENARIO QUEST IS YOUR FIRST PRIORITY.

If you’re fresh Marauder – go start up with your hunting log. A level one character doing hunting logs + participating in level appropriate FATES isn’t bad this early on. For MRD’s, all Tier 1 log entries are in Lower and Middle La Noscea. (You can do this while queued up for POTD).

After this early burst, refer to the table above for “what to do”.

L1 Skill UnlockedHeavy Swing: For all intents and purposes – your basic attack.

L4 Skill Unlocked – Skull Sunder: Combos from Heavy Swing, this is the very cute beginnings of your future rotation. It has a secondary effect of generating more enmity.

L5 MRD Class Quest – check in on your guildmaster in Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks – Marauder’s Guild. These spawn every 5 levels up until 50, and can give you notable rewards (besides, you NEED to do them to become a Warrior).

L6 Skill Unlocked – Berserk: Is a substantial DPS increase cooldown. Use it on fat enemies and groups. Well, I guess if you’re soloing use it as often as practically possible…

L8 Role Actions unlocked!

L8 Role Action slot I unlockedRampart: Is a generic toughness boosting cooldown. It’s basic, but its one of the best role actions for us. Use it often in dungeons, at the beginning of new pulls and during bosses.

L10 Skill Unlocked – Overpower: Your very first AoE skill (and a great one at that). Best used in packs of 3 or more, but in the early levels it’s justified using it on two guys. It consumes quite a bit of TP so be wary of that.

L10 MRD Class Quest – check in on your guildmaster in Limsa Upper Decks – Marauders’ Guild.

L10 Hmm... Guildhests?

L12 Role Action slot II unlockedLow Blow: Is amazing. It’s primary use is interrupting annoying AoE from mobs. However, one oft forgotten purpose of stun is damage mitigation. A stunned guy won’t hit you! Simple as that! Stunning a guy in a pack of 3 (common in dungeons) reduces damage taken by 33%!

L15 MRD Class Quest unlocks Tomahawk: check in on your guildmaster in Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks – Marauder’s Guild.

Tomahawk: A ranged attack great for pulling dungeons and raid bosses. Use it to get an extra hit in while approaching your target.

L15 Unlocks - Duty Roulette Leveling
Tanking Gear and YOU
Advertisement
 

L16 Role Actions Slot III UnlockedProvoke: is a godlike tank role action, and one you should familiarize yourself with as early as now. It gives you top enmity on a target mob, but only by a single point. Always follow it up right after – the usual is Provoke into Tomahawk. While it’s crap for soloing, it’s a MUST HAVE in any other type of content.

L17 Unlocks - Challenge Log

L18 Skill Unlocked – Maim: Combos from Heavy Swing. If you need to purely do damage, Maim beats Skull Sunder for that purpose. Only use Skull Sunder in dungeons WHEN YOU NEED ENMITY. Maim also gives the enemy a debuff of -10% slashing damage resistance which means MORE DAMAGE FOR ALL OF OUR SKILLS! Always keep this buff up on enemies, especially bosses.

L20 Role Actions Slot IV unlockedConvalescence:  increases incoming heals. It’s obviously quite bad as we don’t really have access to healing skills right now (it does affect your healer Chocobo!).

L20 MRD Class Quest – check in on your guildmaster in Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks – Marauder’s Guild.

L24 Role Actions Slot V unlockedAnticipation: Increases parry rate. This is an amazing cooldown when facing 3 or more mobs. Against bosses, however, you shouldn’t rely on it.

L25 MRD Class Quest – check in on your guildmaster in Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks – Marauder’s Guild.

L26 Skill UnlockedThrill of Battle: A defensive cooldown which beefs up your max life and heals you for the same amount. It’s pretty good, and will be useful for the rest of your Warrior career. It’s one of the few skills that compound very well with other defensive cooldowns – ramping up your effective HP enormously.

Once you hit level 30 FULL STOP! It’s time you evolve into a job class – in your case that’s Warrior (WAR)! The prerequisites to unlocking the quest are simply finishing ALL MRD class quests up to level 30.

L30 Class quest unlocksButcher’s Block, and the prereq for Warrior:

Butcher’s Block: Your first combo finisher! So your single target rotation now goes back to Heavy Swing > Skull Sunder > Butcher’s Block. Don’t ignore Maim though, it’s great for bosses – and if you have other slashing characters in your party (DRK, SAM, NIN etc…).

Completing this quest marks your final class quest as Marauder. You now have the right to become a Warrior!

How to become a Warrior?

The quest to become a Warrior is Pride and Duty (Will Take You from the Mountain), found in Marauder’s Guild. Completing this quest gives you Soul of the Warrior, and Defiance skill. (I know, that quest name seems long, but I promise you that’s not a typo)

Soul of the Warrior is your job soul crystal. To become a Warrior you merely have to equip it (it’s on the lower right most equipment slot). Equipping the soul crystal is a tiny bit of a hassle since you have to rebind your skills, and reconfigure your equipment set. But it’s okay since you’ll likely never be a Marauder again.

And with that YOU’RE DONE WITH LEVELING Marauder! Congrats! Feel free to proceed to the Warrior Leveling Guide. Hopefully our Marauder Leveling Guide helped you out – Patience friend, you’ll be Fell Cleaving soon enough.

Gladiator Leveling – 01 to 30

If this is your first character:
MAIN SCENARIO QUEST IS YOUR FIRST PRIORITY.

L1 Skill UnlockedFast Blade: This is your basic attack, and eventually all of your combos start from the humble Fast Blade! “Spamming Fast Blade” is your only means of offense right now.

L1 Skill UnlockedFight or Flight: A generic DPS cooldown (physical damage only). Use as often as you can! Obviously, don’t pop it when majority of its duration will be wasted.

L4 Skill UnlockedSavage Blade: This combos from Fast Blade – giving us a significant boost in kill speed. It also generates a large amount of enmity, which is notable for dungeons.

L5 GLD Class Quest – check in on your guildmaster in Ul’dah – Steps of Thal – Gladiators’ Guild. These spawn every 5 levels up until 50, and can give you notable rewards (besides, you NEED to do them to become a Paladin).

L6 Skill UnlockedFlash: An AoE enmity generation skill. Keep in mind that this blinds all enemies it affects! Keep this blind in mind when you eventually speedrun dungeons, every little bit of mitigation helps in gigantic pulls.

L8 Role Actions unlocked!

L8 Role Action slot I unlockedRampart: is a generic damage reduction cooldown. While it’s decent in solo content, it shines in dungeons and, eventually, raids.

L10 Skill UnlockedRiot Blade: This combos from Fast Blade. THIS IS STRONGER THAN SAVAGE BLADE! Keep this in mind! If you have enough aggro on a mob (or are soloing) – Go Fast Blade into Riot Blade. Every bit of value counts!

L10 GLD Class Quest – check in on your guildmaster in Ul’dah – Gladiators’ Guild.

L10 Hmm... Guildhests?

L12 Role Action slot II unlockedLow Blow: is amazing in low levels where you almost never pull more than 3 mobs. Stunning a mob in a pack of 2 is a 50% damage reduction! In a pack of 3 it’s 33%! Stunning one guy is 100%!

L15 GLD Class Quest unlocks Shield Lob: check in on your guildmaster in Ul’dah – Gladiators’ Guild. Shield Lob is a generic ranged skill which gives bonus enmity.

L15 Unlocks - Duty Roulette Leveling

While it’s crap for soloing, it’s a MUST HAVE in any other type of content.

L17 Unlocks - Challenge Log

L18 Skill UnlockedShield Bash: Ah, this skill is actually amazing in the lower levels. An on-demand stun is very powerful in dungeons. I used it as “pseudo mitigation” – stunning multiple mobs in a pack severely reduces your damage taken.

L20 Trait UnlockedEnhanced Vitality: explanation

L20 Role Action Slot IV UnlockedConvalescence: increases incoming heals. It’s obviously quite bad as we don’t really have access to healing skills right now (it does affect your healer Chocobo!).

L20 GLD Class Quest – check in on your guildmaster in Ul’dah – Steps of Thal – Gladiators’ Guild.

L24 Role Actions Slot V UnlockedAnticipation: Increases parry rate. This is an amazing cooldown when facing 3 or more mobs.

L25 GLD Class Quest – check in on your guildmaster in Ul’dah – Gladiators’ Guild.

L26 Skill Unlocked Rage of Halone: a combo finisher! Rage of Halone combos from Fast Blade > Savage Blade into Rage of Halone.

Once you hit level 30 FULL STOP! It’s time you evolve into a job class – in your case that’s Paladin (PLD)! The prerequisites to unlocking the quest are simply finishing ALL GLD class quests up to level 30.

L30 Class quest unlocksShield Swipe, and the prereq for Paladin:

Shield Swipe: is an “off-gcd” skill which does some DPS and pacifies. It triggers whenever you block. Use it whenever it procs!

Completing this quest marks your final class quest as Gladiator. You now have the right to become a Paladin!

How to become a Paladin?

The quest to become a Paladin is Paladin’s Pledge, found in Gladiators’ Guild. Completing this quest gives you Soul of the Paladin, and Shield of Oath.

Soul of the Paladin is your job soul crystal. To become a Paladin you merely have to equip it (it’s on the lower right most equipment slot). Equipping the soul crystal is a tiny bit of a hassle since you have to rebind your skills, and reconfigure your equipment set. But it’s okay since you’ll likely never be a Gladiator again.

  • [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.

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!

Before you begin…

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

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:

Armorsmith 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!)

Armorsmith Class Quest Item Reference:

ARM 01: Bronze Ingot
ARM 05: 3x Bronze Hoplons
ARM 10: 12x Bronze Plate
ARM 15: Decorated Bronze Barbut, Bronze Buckler
ARM 20: Iron Hoplon (Materia-Enhanced)
ARM 25: (HQ) Steel Ingot
ARM 30: (HQ) Steel Chainmail
ARM 35: (HQ) Steel Frypan
ARM 40: (HQ) Mythril Cuirass
ARM 45: (All HQ) Mythril-plated Caligae, Reinforced Mythril Elmo, Mythril Sollerets
ARM 50: (HQ) Cobalt Haubergeon (Melded with: Heaven’s Eye III Materia)

Just use the above as a quick reference if completing multiple Armorsmith class quests at once. 50 to 60 is found in that segment 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.

Armorsmithing: The beginning!

[H] 1x Bronze Skillet: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS
[H] 3x Bronze Ingot: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS
[C] 3x Bronze Plate: Recommended due to large EXP.
[RC] 1x Bronze Alembic: Recommended due to large EXP.
[L] 1x Bronze Hoplon: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS
[L] 1x Bronze Rivets: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS

“What is the Courier, Reverse Courier Cycle?” A courier levequest starts from your Hometown (In ARMs case Limsa) and ends in the local levemete (In this tiers case Red Rooster Stead). The idea is to get, complete, get, complete in a circle to maximize the EXP of your travel time.

So ARM 01 tier – it’s getting the quest from Limsa to submit 3x Bronze Plate in Red Rooster Stead, then taking the reverse courier quest from Red Rooster Stead and then submitting 1x Bronze Alembic in Limsa. This, by the way. is the fastest+least hassle way to get out of the early tiers.

“How do I get to Red Rooster Stead!?” It’s a non-aetheryte town outside Limsa. Just take the Aethernet to XXX gate and walk a bit east.

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 ARM supplier and craft>submit Bronze Rivets in Limsa.

ARM is a bit special… You can begin your early levels (and subsequently the beginning of every tier) by crafting as many Bronze Ingot/Rings/Rivets and Plates as soon as they’re available to craft. Even quick synthing 20-99 of each shouldn’t be too expensive. This method is great to preserve you much needed levequests, and should be taken advantage of in this early phase (for a tiny tradeoff in gil). In case you’ll ignore this little section, don’t worry – I’ll be sure to repeat myself in future tiers, hehe.

Like I said, you can do this much easier/lazier if you buy completed Bronze Ingots from Limsa Lower Decks (8,11).

Armorsmith 05 to 10

All levequest items below have 100% NPC Buyable Materials.

[H] 1x Bronze Barbut: Unnotable.
[H] 1x Bronze Haubergeon: Unnotable.
[C] 1x Bronze Sallet: Recommended.
[RC] 1x Bronze Chain Coif: Recommended.
[L] Bronze Scutum: Unnotable.
[L] Bronze Sollerets: Recommended.

Again reminding you about my comment about Ingots/Rings/Rivets/Plates from previous tier.

Courier  <-> Reverse Courier cycle: Nothing noteworthy here, again, the mats are all obtainable from ARM supplier.

Or the best single: While the cost between the choices on singles is irrelevant, Bronze Sollerets win in the least hassle department.

Armorsmith 10 to 15

All levequest items below have 100% NPC Buyable Materials.

[H] 1x Iron Skillet: Unnotable
[H] 1x Bronze Plate Belt: Unnotable
[C] 1x Bronze Sabatons: Recommended.

[L] 1x Brass Alembic: Unnotable
[L] 1x Amateur’s Skillet: Recommended.

Again reminding you about my comment about Ingots/Rings/Rivets/Plates from previous tier.

Courier  <-> Reverse Courier cycle: Nothing notable about the items here… Both of them have materials that are available from the ARM Supplier.

Or the best single: Amateurs Skillet is the easiest to craft, and least hassle amongst the bunch here. While it doesn’t really matter which single you choose here, skillet definitely wins by a few inches.

Summary of this chunk

Courier / Reverse Courier is best in early tiers

Level 1: Bronze Plate [Limsa] / Bronze Alembic [Red Rooster Stead] Level 5: Bronze Sallet [Limsa] / Bronze Chain Coif [Red Rooster Stead] Level 10:  Bronze Sabatons [Limsa] / Bronze Gauntlets [Swiftperch]

Alchemist: the beginning!

[H] 1x Leather Grimoire: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS (See notes)
[H] 3x Quicksilver: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS
[C] 3x Growth Formula Alpha: Recommended due to large EXP.
[RC] 1x Maple Wand: Recommended due to large EXP.
[L] 3x Animal Glue: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS
[L] 3x Antidote: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS

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

So ALC 01 tier – it’s getting the quest from Ul’dah to submit 3x Growth Formula Alpha in Scorpion crossing, then taking the reverse courier quest from Scorpion Crossing and then submitting 1x Maple Wand in Ul’dah. This is by the way the fastest+least hassle way to get out of the early tiers.

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 ALC supplier and craft>submit Leather Grimoires in Ul’dah. Why? Speed… If you prefer any of the triple crafts (Quicksilver, Animal Glue, Antidote), for more manual crafting EXP, choose any – they’re all quite similar.

You can of course just randomly grind to level up a bit, too.

“How do I get to Scorpion Crossing!?” It’s a non-aetheryte town located right out of Ul’dah. Take the Aethernet to XXX then just walk a bit north.

Alchemist 05 to 10

All levequest items below have 100% NPC Buyable Materials.

[H] 3x Eye Drops: Unnotable
[H] 3x Distilled Water: Recommended, easiest to craft and cheapest.
[C] 1x Whispering Maple Wand: Recommended due to large EXP.
[RC] 1x Maple Picatrix: Recommended due to large EXP.
[L] 3x Beeswax: Unnotable
[L] 3x Rubber: Unnotable

Like in any 5 tier, there’s only 2 choices:

The Courier  <-> Reverse Courier cycle: Maple Picatrix isn’t a huge problem (Materials from ALC guild), but it does require 2 synthesis (Ink). Whispering Maple Wand, while seemingly a hassle – you can buy the basic Maple Wand and Growth Formula alpha if you don’t wanna make those (From Gridania and Ul’dah Merchant Strip respectively).  A tiny hassle, but the EXP rewards are huge.

Or the best single: Cheapest and easiest to HQ is Distilled Water. I mean seriously, the mats are so cheap they may as well give it for free.

Alchemist 10 to 15

All levequest items below have 100% NPC Buyable Materials.

[H] 3x Ether: Unnotable
[H] 1x Budding Maple Wand: Avoid
[C] 1x Ash Picatrix: Recommended due to large EXP.
[RC] 1x Roof Tile: Recommended due to large EXP.
[L] 3x Growth Formula Beta: Unnotable
[L] 3x Potion: Recommended.

Like in any 10 tier, there’s only 2 chocies:

The Courier  <-> Reverse Courier cycle: The materials for the Ash Picatrix and Roof Tile are all buyable from the ALC supplier. Picatrix is just a tiny hassle due to crafting the ink. Otherwise, good ‘ol C-RC leves.

Or the best single: Avoid the wand is the only fast rule I have for you here. The other are all similarly chumpy, but if I were to recommend one – Potion. Yep, basic as bones potion. You can buy ready-made Distilled Water from Merchants Strip. Or you can quicksynth ‘em.

Summary of this chunk

Courier / Reverse Courier is best in the early tiers:

Level 1:  Growth Formula Alpha / Maple Wand [Scorpions Crossing] Level 5: Whispering Maple Wand / Maple Picatrix [Scorpions Crossing] Level 10:  Ash Picatrix / 3x Roof Tile [Horizon]

Of course, we also can recommend the best singles:

ALC 1 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Leather Grimoire
ALC 5 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Distilled Water
ALC 10 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Potion

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.
