Weaver Level 35 to 40

L35 WVR Class Quest Item: (HQ) Linen Shirt
L35 WVR Leves [L]ocation: Coerthas (Observatorium) | Ul’dah
L35 WVR Leves Items Discussion:

[H][3] Linen Hat – Linen Tights is slightly cheaper…
[H][1] Linen Trousers – Too many different mats…
[C] Linen Wedge Cap of Gathering – Usual courier..
[L][3] Linen Tights – Recommended.
[L][1] Linen Cowl – uses 4 cloth…
[L][1] Linen Coatee of Crafting – Not a bad chocie for singles.

Continue the linen grinding this tier whenever able. Again, our good ‘ol Sylphic friends sell deez Linen.

Level 35 tier begins the “hassle” courier tiers. So not only do you have to teleport, you now have to take a choco porter or ride yourself.

Singles: Hmm, Linen Cowl is your only real choice here. I mean, Coatee is too similar to the courier recipe (So you may as well have, right?). Linen Trousers is LAUGHABLY BAD.

Triples: Honestly, quite value – Linen Tights has a hassle-free recipe that you can use some of your HQ cloths to improve chances on.

Courier: Really time consuming in this tier, courier loses a lot of it’s value. However, it still remains a valid choice especially for the more AFK oriented times you’re leveling up. Linen Wedge Cap of Gathering isn’t expensive to make anyway.

The only ‘terrible choices’ in this tier are the non-Linen Cowl singles. Aside from that, there’s no true mistake you can make in this tier. Personally? I did Linen Tights triples.

Weaver Level 40 to 45

L40 WVR Class Quest Item: (HQ) Woolen Tights
L40 WVR Leves [L]ocation: Coerthas (Whitebrim) | Ul’dah
L40 WVR Leves Items Discussion:

[H][R] 3(9)x Linen Deerstalker: Best Triple this tier, NPCable.
[H] 1x Linen Smock: Godlike.
[C] 1x Woolen Kecks: Even though it’s a courier… I’d avoid.
[L][R] 3(9)x Woolen Hat:lolwool. Avoid.
[L] 1x Woolen Tights: lolwool. Avoid.
[L] 1x Ranger’s Tunic: lolwool. Avoid.

Sylph = Linen. Reminder number three. At any time of your choosing, grinding on a bit of Wool Yarn and Woolen Cloth may be of some use.

Singles: Uses Linen and Velveteen? A good thing! Linen Smock is a godlike leve choice that uses older tier mats and has massive EXP gains. Lanolin is dirt cheap anyway. Oh, before you check Rangers Tunic – yes it requires Wool.

Triples: clearly Linen Deerstalker since the other requires Wool Yarn.

Courier: Well, sadly this tiers courier needs wool. You know what else it needs? Steel Ingot and Boar Leather. It’s a bit of a hassle all in all and I would avoid it.

I personally spammed Linen Smock here with a smockering or the triple Deerstalker a few times.

Weaver Level 45 to 50

L45 WVR Class Quest Item:
(All HQ) Woolen Beret, Woolen Gown, Woolen Gaskins
L45 WVR Leves [L]ocation: Mor Dhona | Ul’dah
L45 WVR Leves Items Discussion:

[H][R] 3(9)x Woolen Smock: Triples are both sucky.
[H] 1x Felt Hat: Best of the “worst”
[C] 1x Felt Chausses: About “on par” with the suckiness, but it’s a courier.
[L][R] 3(9)x Woolen Deerstalker: Triples are both sucky.
[L] 1x Felt Robe: Avoid
[L] 1x Rainmaker’s Tunic: Avoid

While the new changes made WVR CONSIDERABLY EASIER than in 2.0+, this tier remains quite bad still!

Triples: are both subpar and there’s no noticable gain when choosing one or the other. Recipes very similar.

Singles: I cannot, in good conscience recommend any of these as good, but the lesser evil would be Felt Hat simply due to least amount of Felt, and simplest recipe.

Courier: Seeing as Felt Chausses has roughly the same price as any other leve in this tier. So why should we bother with the singles or triples?

Overall, just suck it up and Courier. If you wanna do singles or triples, the ones I recommend above are best. But ah… doesn’t mean they’re nice. End your 2.0 WVR leveling with Courier!

Since it hasn’t been mentioned in this guide due to the relative ease of the tiers – This would be a great tier to use you Ixal Daily & Challenge Log EXP. Don’t forget your GC turn-in!

You got a lot of “free passes” via NPC buyable stuff, but I guess you gotta pay for it sometime, huh? Good luck on that last push before Ishgard!

If Grinding: Well, making any Leve item or refining Fleece into Wool and Felt will do… you’re pretty close anyway.

Weaver Level: [0-15] | [15-35] | [35-50] |
[50-60] | [60-64] | [64-70]

  1. What do the numbers in “Best?” mean? I can’t find anywhere what your model of reference is, so I don’t know which is the best option for each tier, if 3 or 1.

  2. hey, i think most (if not all) of the shopping list items for the beginning of this guide can be bought from the generic material suppliers found in housing districts
    so if your FC has a house with one of those merchants that might be a more convenient place to shop than running around between 3 npcs

  3. I managed to level from 56 to 60 in about 6 hours by handing in collectible ramie cloths. Perhaps not the fastest way but buying stalks of ramie and collecting my own flax only cost me about 60-70k to get those last 4 levels. Whilst using engineering manual II’s and food buffs.

      1. It’s in a newer patch. It only gives 10 blue scrip and 110k exp. But if you compare the prices of some of the leve items and mats, it’s a great value. Not sure if it’s Ramie Cloth all the time, but I can let you know!

  4. I’m not seeing a gear update still? That would be very helpful, I’m pretty (totally goddamn) lost when it comes to melds, I never had a 50 crafter pre-3.0, and my wvr is now 56 and still rocking a few 50 equips.

  5. I’m not sure if it’s fastest, but I found it really easy between 56-58 to spam the collectable for ramie cloth. Not only are the mats easily obtainable, it also gives scrips to start you off (to get the WVR masterbook for 58-60). Crawler silk is just too expensive on my server

  6. I followed all the steps to level Weaving from 1-15 and all it BARELY got me to level 14. I have no clue where you guys got this idea of your method getting someone to 15 LET ALONE 15++. Not only did I follow every step (including the scroll), but i also used an EXP helm from 1-11 and i ate and orange for another 3% EXP and still I was only able to just hit 14.

  7. I’m confused why you would go Holy Rainbow Apron for your 52-54 option? It requires 1 less Cloth and 1 less Wyvern leather, sure, but you have to make two of them for the hand in, and have to submit twice to get the same XP as the Holy Rainbow Sarouel of Casting, meaning 4 aprons (8 cloth 4 thread) vs 1 sarouel (3 cloth, 1 thread, 1 leather) for the same xp. Unless wyvern leather is prohibitively expensive and difficult to get for you, I can’t see why this would be the better option.

  8. In the tier 56 to 58 the hallowed ramie sash of casting is quite good on my server, because you get them from a npc quite cheap (11k Gil)
    The mats for crawler silk and crawler silk itself is far too expensive (mats: 18k gil for 1!, Crawler Silk: 22k)

  9. The Ixal Deliverance quest is also a good thing to do daily. The quest itself doesn’t give much exp, but HQ item turn-ins do.

  10. I prefer to do the Leve “Felt for the Fallen” from 58 to 60. 198,778 exp for 3 Chimerical Felt. It will take 20 leve allowances and a total of 60 normal quality Chimerical Felt to go from level 59 to 60. A little less than double that for 58 to 60. I hate farming Deepeye Tears (I find the other mats trivial for the dissolvents) which is why I choose the leve over crafting any type of gear (collectable or not).

    To help those who choice to do the healer or caster corsets: Mogpoms are 100% catch in the Greensward of Churning Mist (8,34) with Goblin Jig. (used in making Intellect Dissolvent). Flying is required to reach here. and you need to be 58FSH to use the Jig. Blue Cloud Coral is caught in “Cloudtop” fishing hole in Sea of Clouds (15,38). Level 51 Fishing, use a Red Balloon, turn on SNAGGING!!!

  11. Just gotta add. Since latest patch. Handing in 3 HQ items 3 Times only gives 100% bonus EXP. Courier quests are by far the faster (And cheaper) way of leveling now.

    1. 100% is truth across ALL leve types now. However, courier becomes extremely painful in the level 35+ range (no aetheryte)

  12. [C]ourier Leves: Levemete is from the [H]ometown, to be submitted to the [L]ocal Levemete. I’m confused on what that means. Read info below.

    Level 40 WVR Leves [L]ocation: Coerthas (Whitebrim) | Ul’dah
    Level 40 Weaver Leves Items Discussion:

    [H][3] Linen Deerstalker

    Where do I go to obtain that leve? I don’t see it in Whitebrim.

    1. Every tier has ONE levequest which ORIGINATE from (lets say in weavers example) Ul’dah, and is submitted to the level-specific levemete in another town. For example, Level 45 courier quests would take you from Uldah to St. Coincachs.

  13. For the first part you tell us the shopping list but don’t tell us what to make with it…what am I suppose to craft with those items?

    1. Below is a list of items needed to complete your crafting log from L1: Hempen Yarn – L15: Cotton Shepherd Slops.

      It’s above the list

  14. Just used this 1st part of the guide in patch 2.2 and I was already lvl 7, with the boos. After I finished wasn’t even close to lvl 15 :( about 13 and a half.. don’t think I did anything wrong. did I miss something?

    1. Nothing wrong. I just think this guide is out of date, or forgetting to mention something.

      I found that increasing the quality of an item gave extra xp, so it’s something I did as soon as I could, but I still fell short of 15. I’m just QSing cotton yarn for the remaining level I’m missing.

        1. Dunno about earlier posters, but I just finished 1-15 craft logs and even did the first two crafts in the 15-20 log, all while using the GC Engineering Scroll, and making sure to go for as much HQ as I can on each and every craft… and it got me halfway through level 14.
          Something is definitely up with the guide. =/

    1. hmmm.. not a typo! It means there are [L]ocal leves in Quarrymill and Costa, and the [H]ome leves from Ul’dah are still available!

  15. Fleece only costs 41 gill each on my server now (about the same amount as the flax I bought when I was still leveling weaving a few months ago), thanks to overfarming and bots, so I guess weaving just became easier on my server, at least.

    1. Yes, fleece and diremite webs price have dropped since this writing! Is it a permanent thing? Something due to bots offloading for housing gil? I’ll wait a few days before i adjust this guide for that anomaly! :D

  16. In the 35-40 tier, I would say that the single turn in for Linen Cowl is cheaper than the triple Linen Tights. Sure the cowl is 4 cloth, but 3 Tights is 6 cloth. Also factor in that the Cowl is 40kish exps, vs. 23kish exps and really, the only thing you are saving by doing the triple turn in is leve allowances. if you have plenty of allowances saved up, then the Cowl is far more efficient.

    1. Because if you turn in HQ items that triple could give you 136k -ish XP for one leve. For the amount of XP you can get that is the better choice.
