FFXIV ARR Levequests Guide

What are Levequests?

Levequests are repeatable quests you can do to gain various rewards. To start a Levequest, you must first have a ‘Leve Allowance‘ to spend. To start a Levequest, view the quest journal entry and click “Initiate” on the bottom.

(“I know what Levequests are, I need the Levemete locations!“, Okay… okay.. Scroll down to that.)
(“Where are the crafting / gathering Leves!? We have that too)

New  Levequests can be unlocked every 5 Levels. All Level 1 and 5 Levequests are automatically unlocked after you unlock the Levequest System. Starting Level 10, each batch of Levequests must be “unlocked” by speaking to the respective Levemete. They give you a trial Levequest (Does not reduce allowances) to prove you’re up for the task. Unlocking new Levemetes are a great indication of where you should be levelling up.

**Note: when changing Class, make sure you finish your Level 10 class quest from the Guildmaster in order to unlock Levequests for the new class you are leveling

You can also accept any Levequest in the region you’ve unlocked through the Levemetes in the  Adventurers Guild (where your inn room is)

Some types of Levequests allow you to scale their difficulty. You can choose a difficulty of up to +1 to +4, usually adjusting the monster level. Naturally, by scaling up the difficulty, the rewards also increase!

How often do I gain Leve Allowances?

You gain 3 Leve Allowances every 12 hours.

What are the different kinds of Levequests?

Battlecraft Leves
The most common type of levequest, these give EXP for combat (Disciple of War or Disciple of Magic classes). Their difficulty can be scaled up and can be performed in a party. Doing these in groups makes even a +4 difficulty Levequest extremely easy, and great for farming fast EXP.

Tradecraft Leves
These levequests provide EXP for crafting (Disciple of Hand) classes. They usually involve submitting one to three items to an NPC. Submitting High Quality item triples the exp gained. Some Tradecraft Leves actually “refund” your allowance if you submit all HQ items! You may not scale their difficulty, and can only be performed solo.

Fieldcraft Leves
Gains EXP for Disciple of Land classes. They can be scaled in difficulty, but cannot be undertaken in groups. Be warned though, scaling the difficulty of Fieldcraft Levequests should be done carefully. Gathering materials way above your level can result in a lot of time and exp lost! (Failed gathers, low chains).

Grand Company Leves
Similar to Battlecraft Levequests, these must be done using a combat class. However, the EXP & Gil rewards for these are much smaller. The main reward for doing these are the Grand Company Seals you’ll be getting. These must be done alone, and be scaled up in difficulty.

Levequest / Levemete Locations

Yeah, I know how you feel. Need a bit of quick EXP but you don’t know where the nearest Levemete is? Here you go. (Below is a sortable table of levemete information. On the upper right of the table there is a search filter.)

Generally speaking, doing Battlecraft Leves are the worst way to spend Leve Allowances. Grand Company Leves are considered one of the best ways to use them (as long as you need the seals). These are extremely useful when leveling up a second class, when you’ve depleted quests around the area.

Basically, there are 2 sets of crafting levequests per tier. 3 from the city of your crafting class, 2 from the “local levemete”. It still follows the pattern of 5 levequests per 5 levels.

Alchemist Leves | Armorsmith Leves | Blacksmith Leves | Carpentry Leves |
Culinarian Leves | Goldsmith Leves | Leatherworking Leves | Weaving Leves |

  1. Are all these right? I’m lv 20 and went to go to Esmond in Little Ala Mhigo but the quests lists lv 25. Am I really stuck doing lv 15 leves until 25 to do the lv 20 stuff?

  2. i am doing a 2nd class. im at south thanalan. i already unlocked the levequest with esmond but he is only giving me level 25 levelquests. how can i unlock level 20 levequests.

    1. South Thalanan is a level 25-50 area, Info above incorrect, you will not get level 20 leves from Little Ala Mhigo.

      1. You know it’s about time i reviewed this. I did this very quickly back in the first week/s of the game. I have written research here in my room.. it’s time to update before 3.0!!

  3. Need to update the Tradecraft leve info … been a long time since HQ xp was tripled, just doubled now but still probably the best way of using leve allowances, especially once you get above level 30 or so in a craft. And no more refunding of allowances, either.

  4. Yeah the leve/quest distinction gets a little tricky when you are unlocking a new set, but just check the color of the circle on your minimap. Red circles indicate quest objectives, so look for something to kill/interact with in that area. The green circles are leves, which require you to initiate the quest from your journal. Hope that helps!

  5. For those who don’t see an initiate button; I had the same problem and figured it out. You get two quests when you get your first test leve in a new area. one’s objective is to complete the objective of the leve, and the other is the actual leve. For some reason the quest to complete the leve appears above the leve on the duty bar so its easy to mix them up.

  6. i’m having the same problem in little ala migho. i’m a level 30, clearly standing in the red circle, open the event in my journal but the initiate button is not present…just the map botton. all the others were easy enough. get in the cicle, open the event in the journal, click initiate…what gives? let me know if you figure it out

  7. H’amneko is located just south of Camp Tranquil on the bridge leading south. He is in a level 30 area but he requires Rank Sergeant 3rd Class in order to offer you any Grand Company leve quests. It might seem counterintuitive that you need that many seals to open level 30 GC leves because if you have them you’ll be at least 35 by then. Here’s the catch though; on your other jobs you will need this unlocked to provide a path to level through quests when all the normal ones are long since done. Oh he’s a for Twin Adders

Hey! What do you have to say?
