Carpenter Level 15-20

Level 15 Carpenter Class Quest Item: Feather Harpoon, Ash Shortbow
Level 15 CRP Leves [L]ocation: Hawthorne Hut | Gridania
Level 15 Carpenter Leves Items Discussion:

I won’t recommend using leves this tier, but if you choose to… The Courier / Reverse Courier is always good.

[H][1] Elm Cane – The simplest one.
[H][1] Iron Spear – So so..
[C][3] Elm Lumber – Best use of leves here.
[RC][1] Ash Shortbow – Paired with this.
[L][1] Square Ash Shield – Store Bought stuff.
[L][1] Ash Mask (Lapis Lazuli) – So so..

Usual NPC-bought tier.

If Grinding: Elm Lumber for your stockpile.

Carpenter Level 20-25

Level 20 Carpenter Class Quest Item: Iron Lance (Materia Enhanced)
Level 20 CRP Leves [L]ocation: Quarrymill Gridania
Level 20 Carpenter Leves Items Discussion:

[H][3] Ash Mask (Lapis Lazuli) – Pretty Cheap.
[H][1] Yew Radical -Sunrise Tellin is okay if you can gather it yourself.
[C][1] Iron Lance – Hmm, the field ones might be better.
[L][3] Iron Spears – Not worth it.
[L][1] Mudstone Grinding Wheel – Decent.
[L][1] Walnut Lumber (3) – Hard to HQ yourself, but they’re cheap to buy.

Better off with the Quarrymill leves here.

If Grinding: Yew Lumber for your stockpile.

Carpenter Level 25-30

Level 25 Carpenter Class Quest Item: (HQ) Walnut Lumber
Level 25 CRP Leves [L]ocation: Quarrymill | Gridania
Level 25 Carpenter Leves Items Discussion:

[H][5] Walnut Lumber – Hard to HQ yourself, but they’re cheap to buy.
[H][1] Viper-crested Round Shield – Nope.
[C][1] Silver Spear – Nope.
[L][3] Yew Crooks – Walnut lumbers more worth it.
[L][1] Elm Macuahuitl – Godlike cheapness. Don’t bother with any other single this tier.
[L][1] Steel Spear – Nope.

Elm Macuahuitl is just vastly superior to anything else in this tier.

If Grinding: Walnut Lumber for your stockpile.

[L][3] Steel Halberds – Not cheap either, but the better choce.
[L][1] Heavy Steel Lance – Could be expensive…
[L][1] Oak Longbow  – This could be the cheapest here.

    1. after finishing with ARM 50 to 60 (tonight) my next goal is to update all 01-50 DOH and DOL guides.

      The shopping list is something I’m really iffy about. I’ll think and look into it as to how it can be made better or if there’s something else I can do about it.

      There are many things to consider, but mainly formatting. I’ll try my best.

  1. um for the walnut Macuahuitl, if you hand in the triple exchange leve you only get under 20k exp, where if u hand them in one at a time in costa del sol u get 49k exp for each one you hand in…….

    1. Except that if you’re turning in HQ items, which should be priority when doing leves the Courier caps at 98k(49k x 2 for HQ) per leve while the triple maxes at 117.6k per leve(19.6k x 2 for HQ + option to turn in twice more for a total of ((19.6k x 2) x 3)).

      Triple is the better option between the two if you’re mainly concerned about exp per leve. Less travel time as well.

      1. Actually no, the triple really isn’t. In the time it takes to craft NINE items to gain a measly 20k, barely 20% bonus of the ONE item) You could turn in ALL 9 singles. Just set one as favored, one as free. Cost of crystals, effort of mats, everything.. not worth it. I’m low on Leves and I STILL won’t touch triples. I prefer making a quick HQ macro and doing all 9 turn ins within 5min.

      2. Exp per leve, maybe. But 20% more exp for up to 9x the cost. (3×3 items Vs 1 Item)

        This guide (and most on this site) are horribly outdated since the nerfing of triple turn-ins and the buffing of single/couriers.

    2. I have to agree with this. The level 30 leve for the Walnut Macuahuitl is the way to go. 98000 xp for 1 HQ item beats 117600 for 9 of the same HQ item. It may cost you leves, but it’s well worth for time and money you’ll save from having to craft less.

      Also, to make the trip easier, go ahead and make Costa del Sol and New Gridania favored destinations. It’ll cut down on the teleporting costs, which comes out to over 1000 gil per round trip without favored destination.

      1. Depends if you are trying to power level several crafts in a short amount of time, without factoring in grinding which takes forever. You will burn through roughly 60 Leves using HQ items. Triples saves you several days of waiting for allowances.

      2. Having tried this last night, the level 30 single turn in will carry you all the way to 50. It is nuts!

        The triple, on the other hand, requires vastly more effort and resources for marginal benefit.
