CRP 60 to 62: What I did in this tier

Here’s what I personally did in this tier…

Make a bunch of Beech Lumber! You can optionally use Commercial Engineering Manual. I made roughly 40 for my own stockpile and for other classes to use.

After a bunch of grinding simply submit enough to hit L62.

Grinding Carpenter 60 to 62

I’d like to state it now that grinding on 40 durability ingots is a huge part of crafting leveling (you’re gonna end up using the materials, anyway…) so always try to optimize your rotation for those.

CRP 62 to 64: What I did in this tier

Here’s what I personally did in this tier:

62 to 63 doesn’t change much. Simply grind and submit more Beech Lumber (L60 tier levequest) (it should be easier with gear upgrades). YOU CAN ATTEMPT TO GRIND LARCH LUMBER AT 62, but for most I’d say wait ’til 63.

CRAFT YOUR OWN LARCH TIER ACCESSORIES for some extra crafting log EXP – they’re mandatory upgrades anyway.

Upon hitting 63 do your class quest, update your gear and rotation. Larch Lumber grinding becomes much easier with the main hand, off hand and accessories.

I made maybe 30 pieces of Larch Lumber. Use up Commercial Engineering Manuals since it’s a “manual grind”. Submit more Beech Lumber if you must to round out to 64.

Grinding Carpenter 62 to 64

Beech Lumbers, Larch Lumbers and Larch tier accessories are all great to grind on. Larch Tier accessories are pretty marketable, as people will be upgrading into them coming from Heavensward (much like you are, scrublit).

With this you’ve gotten past “the hard part”, which is catching up to the required gear power levels! Congrats!

  1. I just want to point out that from 50-60 some of the best exp you can get is from the moogle daily quests. It cost zero mats as they are provided with the quests and the quests are extremely quick and super easy to complete.

  2. First off love ffxivguild guides , been using for years :) thank you
    …i just grind all crafts 1-50 (again lol) and i noticed that all the leves in them set lvls only
    offer 3 types now not 5 , i did all 3 types to see if i would get a new leve and nope same 3
    may be something to look into ,i did buy some stuff on MB (HQ) just to see i could not get the leve for that item to come about

    1. hmmmm… There should be 3 from the local levemete (area depends on level and class), and another 3 from the hometown (Limsa, Grid or Uldah – depending on class). lemme know if this still confuses you

  3. most of this stuff atleast since 4.0 u can buy from vendors and hand in for still very good xp if your struggling to gather or cant hq anyways or just dont have the time :)

    1. If you paid attention to the guide, you’d notice that the way the list works is that it shows you where to deliver, and where to pick the leve up. It’s listed as Costa del Sol | Gridania because the leve is picked up in Gridania and delivered in Costa del Sol. It would have been pointed out and corrected already if it was a mistake considering how long that’s been relevant, the old content guides weren’t written in 2017.

    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.

  4. 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.
