FFXIV Mining Levequests (Evaluation) & ‘Best per tier’

Find out the best mining leves per tier, and how to maximize the use of levequests for you miner.

Hey guys! This is a short guide detailing the best mining levequests per leve tier. If you’re here you’re probably going to want to see: Mining Leveling Guide. There’s not much else to say about that, I guess – but I’ll have a brief explanation for the newer players:

When in doubt: “Flower Elf” and “Catgirl Fishing” best.
“Lala” and “King” are garbage.

Sadly, not all mining levequests are equal. Of the 4 types of leves you can get, 2 are far superior than the other 2. As stated earlier: Flower Elf > Catgirl Fishing > Lala/King (Equally bad). The problem is the massive disparity between the good ones and the bad ones… in any case – avoid the latter if you can.

Evaluation Mining Leves: are the aforementioned “Flower Elf (FE)” and “Catgirl Fishing (CF)”. If you get the highest possible evaluation rating – you get a massive EXP bonus. This is what you’re after! Careful, it can be a pain if your miner has bad gear.

Levequest Engineering: is the process of ‘forcing’ certain levequests to pop for you. How is this achieved?

  1. Accept all available mining levequests when you reach a new levemete.
  2. Complete them all BUT DO NOT SUBMIT THEM.
  3. Only submit and gain the rewards for “FE” or “CF”.
  4. FE and/or CF should be available again from levemete.
  5. Only submit the “King” and “Lala” variants when you’re ready to go next tier.

List of Mining Levequests (Evaluation)

So I’m going to be listing all Flower Elf (FE) and Catgirl Fishing (CF). Any other leve not listed here is of considerably LESS value. Please note that FE>CF, and read the ‘levequest engineering’ section up top. Not every tier have both.

Leves marked (L) are Mining Temple Leves which cost 10 Leve Allowances, but give larger rewards.
