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 :)

Tips specific for Level 50 to 60

A continuation for our little value guide, focusing on things more geared towards characters in 3.0 content. Open the general section again, if you need to.

Generally speaking, to 60

Battle Chocobo – Okay, So this little guy is actually a pretty huge difference in leveling speed (especially for sidequests and Centurio marks). Certain low DPS classes would suffer immensely without them. (Paladin, Dark Knight, White Mage, Scholar, Astrologian…). Very broadly speaking, DPS Chocobo (Rank 9, 10 optional) speeds up leveling the most for these classes, and most others. This is extremely noticeable in HW where the mobs are insanely chunky.

You can cheaply experiment with specs via Raegan Pepper. If you primarily play DPS, I suggest Ranking up in healing until Choco Regen, then rest in DPS (I personally haven’t tried the tank one – care to chime in?).

Battle Chocobo Flight Attunement – You should get this done ASAP, to save your sanity and Gyashl Greens. It’s obtained thru the quest I believe I can Fly. This quests completion needs flight attunement to Coerthas West, and Dravanian Forelands.

Food, preferably Accuracy Food – Is still a decent reminder to all. Here’s a list of +Acc Food. Dont scoff at 3%. Along the same vein, Rested EXP and Heat of Battle, yada yada.

When do I attune flight to each map? This is best answered is it’s your first time around or not, which is discussed in the next chunk.


First character 50 to 60 – what do?

Flight Attunement, seriously? Okay I’ll discuss it in each map. But keep in mind Gather all aether currents nearby while you’re questing. So at least you have some value there. Spam the button every so often… you wont regret it.

Coerthas Western Highlands: You CAN become attuned after the MSQ leads you to the next area, Dravanian Forelands. Complete flight attunement before leaving.

Dravanian Forelands: You CAN become attuned once MSQ leads you to Churning Mists. Complete flight attunement before leaving, THEN get your battle chocobo flight ready with: I believe I can Fly.

Churning Mists: You CAN become attuned once you beat The Aery via MSQ. Keep in mind a lot of side-quests require flight here, which is quite annoying. So try not to stress out too much with the side-quests until you can fly. Technically, you can leave this area un-attuned and come back for it later.

Sea of Clouds: You CAN become attuned once you beat Limitless Blue (Hard). This place is a little annoying to attune to given its “separated” nature. Again no rush here.

Dravanian Hinterlands: You CAN become attuned once you beat Gubal Library. I highly suggest just rushing through the MSQ here, and getting your attunement later.

Azys Lla: Don’t stress out too much here. Attunement here is super easy and is mainly through MSQ. The sidequests which require flight are easily unlocked, you cant miss them. It’s required to attune here to beat the game. No aether currents here anyway.

Sidequests, yey or nay? My advice is YEY until you can GTFO of the area or attune. Sidequests are PAINFUL if you cannot fly. Some are designed for maximum PAIN if you don’t have flight, and some are outright UN-COMPLETE-ABLE (Is that a word?) without flight. So do AS LITTLE of them as you can, then save them for other classes when you’re able to fly. Or do them with your main when you can fly. Do sidequests as a last resort.

More tips, 50 to 60

Centurio Clan Marks: Unlocked at 53, 56 and 59 respectively… Centurio Clan Rank 1/2/3 mark bills give a sidequest worth of EXP, and are extremely easy to complete. Once you’ve unlocked it once, you can complete them with lower level characters! The EXP is great, and the seals are a welcome bonus. Unlock these at Ishgard (Forgotten Knight).

I was making a guide tracking all of these guys but there were apparently a few already: (I NEED THE LINK OF THE ONE I USED!) (Here, tabular) (Here, images)

Duty Roulette: More to do now! So yeah, more of these things now give EXP to any character at level 50 to 60.

  • Duty Roulette Trials: Is damn value if you don’t wipe. For less than 10 minutes you get a chunk.
  • Duty Roulette High Level: Basically ‘Low Level’ part II. These shouldn’t take longer than 20 minutes.
  • Duty Roulette Main Scenario: Well sometimes you get lucky and get Westwind, and sometimes you get… Castrum.

Good ‘ol Low Level and Guildhest are still your friends. If I’m not mistaken Low Level still gives the chunkiest bonus, but Trials is (can) be the fastest possible EXP gain.

Sidequests, yey or nay? (LET ME JUST PUT THIS AGAIN!) My advice is YEY until you can GTFO of the area or attune. Sidequests are PAINFUL if you cannot fly. Some are designed for maximum PAIN if you don’t have flight, and some are outright UN-COMPLETE-ABLE (Is that a word?) without flight. So do AS LITTLE of them as you can, then save them for other classes when you’re able to fly. Or do them with your main when you can fly. Do sidequests as a last resort.

Dungeon Grinding

Well good’ ol dungeon grinding. Since now BOSSES GIVE A HUGE EXP BONUS, this is worth doing even without rested EXP. Of course, rested EXP in dungeons is still the sauce. I’m going to have to ask my Guildies what these values are but I’ll be putting it here for now. This is more of a table to calculate your sanity. Values below are approximations.

Challenge Log, Heavensward – What changed?

Levequests challenge log for DOW/DOM is a bit tricky now. Getting 5 leve plate types on purely DOW/DOM is a challenge. Without GC quests, you’re either going to have to do 2-3 GC leves with a lowbie, or DOH/DOL leve then complete the set on your combat class.

  1. Nice guide always good to find tips like this for leveling. So sickk of grinding. i broke down and just bought it from mmogah.

  2. Just got FF14 and didn’t even created a class, I started with a good summary of all the classes and now I am down to 3 classes.
    Then I found your guide for those classes and that’s how I get here :)
    Thank you for everything but one thing is missing I think :
    Which server to choose ? Because I heard that some servers are really elitist and unless I like getting insulted I should NOT get into those ones.

  3. I’m not on my home computer (I’m at work! Shhhh….)

    But the company turn ins (The ones that change daily, I think?) give nice chunks of exp, espcially with HQ items – this is only for crafting classes, though. It lists certain amounts of items for the classes, and you turn them in once and then you’re done for the day. Doesn’t matter what class you turn them in with, the exp will go to the proper class using this system. EX: You could be in Monk and turn in the items and you will “gain X Alchemist EXP”.

    I think there is a similar system to turn in the green/pink items from dungeons to get credits and exp, but I haven’t done it in a long time (haven’t played in 3 months, just came back!) – I’m pretty sure that works the same way. it MIGHT just be company credits. Worth looking into?

  4. Just signed up for FF14 and found your site. Thanks for the helpful info for new players, I shall be using this information and site well for my FF14 needs :) your awesome.
