Still needs some refinement/linking – but in a usable state.
Armed with a Needle and on to Ishgard to show the nobles that REAL CLASS ain’t born in to – BUT MADE! If you’re going to get to 60 fast, you’ve found the right guide with our Weaver Leveling guide: 50 to 60 edition!! For a quick reference, I’ll be putting the WVR Levequest Items and WVR Class quest Items up top.

Before you begin WVR 50+
- Go to the Weavers guild in Ul’dah, and get your quest to point you to your new quest giver.
- It’s now in Ishgard! Averil (Ishgard, Astrologicum) is your questgiver… and student!
- You get 3 Commercial Issue Crafting Manuals: Use them wisely! Read the damn tooltip.
- Reminder: DO YOUR GC TURN-IN EVERYDAY. If it’s within your budget. It’s worth an entire tapestry of EXP for your Weaver.
- Go to Ishgard and complete the quest “Inscrutable Tastes“. It unlocks the Scrip turn-in system.
Crafting Scrips, turn-ins and your Weaver:
So how does this all work? Basically, you craft Collectibles and hand them in for EXP, and later on, Scrips. This acts like a ‘free’ levequest! It’s infinitely repeatable – as long as you can afford to make the items. How do you craft a collectible? Using the skill Collectible Synthesis gives you a status effect wherein anything you craft will end up as a collectible.
UNLIKE NORMAL CRAFTING HQ% doesn’t matter. An items collectability is defined by its quality upon completion. So you dont need to “HQ” everything you craft – just make sure you reach the minimum collectability! When you’re done, you’re prompted to keep the item as a collectible, or complete the synthesis normally. These items cannot be stacked, sold or traded. You may also “lower” an item from a collectible to a regular item!
Item linking per tier will be added upon completion
Weaver Level 50 to 52
Leveling up your retainer (Battle class) is EXTREME value for Weaver, and other DoH
WVR 50 Levequest comparison:
- Rainbow Sash of Aiming: Actually costs less than 3 cloths, and easier to HQ.
- Rainbow Cloth: Still good.
Rainbow Ribbon of Healing:(R) Directly inferior to Sash of Aiming. Costs an extra Agate.
What I did in this tier: I crafted a TON of Rainbow Thread. and I mean a ton! You’ll be using these across more than a few classes anyway. Once you’ve amassed thread, save a few HQ ones! Then convert a mix of NQ and HQ threads into Rainbow Cloth. From here finish off to level 52 by making as many HQ Sashes and submitting them. If you have too much cloth you can submit some of those, too. This part was pretty easy. Did I forget to mention to make a sweatshops worth of these threads / cloth?
WVR 52,53 Gear Check: Depending on how intense your DOH gear was coming into 50+, upgrading your Mainhand at L52 to Mythrite Needle, and Offhand at 53 to Holy Cedar Spinning Wheel could prove to be a HUGE gain in stats. Same goes with an HQ Rainbow Coatee. Most people would want to upgrade these three items for now, don’t bother with the other slots just yet…
Weaver Level 52 to 54
WVR 52 Levequest comparison:
Holy Rainbow Shirt of Striking: Garbage. Directly inferior to the sash. (Costs an extra Mythrite Nugget)
- Holy Rainbow Sarouel of Casting: If I was forced to choose a level appropriate leve.
- Rainbow Apron:(R) What a misleading item name. It actually uses Holy Rainbow Cloth, too. But it’s the cheapest to make.
What I did in this tier: It went downhill fast, huh? While Repeatables are a hard sell to most, it’s actually the best bet in this tier. Honestly, why I told you to make a bunch of the previous tier material is because this tier really sucks. If you’re not in a rush supplement your EXP with a day or two of GC turn-ins, and do the 50 leves on and off. A great tier to use one of your Commercial Manuals!
Gear update: filling in later
Weaver Level 54 to 56
WVR 54 Levequest comparison:
- Ramie Turban of Crafting: GREAT VALUE in terms of resell-ability, usability, and overall costs isn’t too bad.
Ramie Robe of Casting: Not bad cost-wise but don’t bother with this.
- Ramie Halfgloves of Healing:(R) It’s not bad at all. If you’re running out of leves…
What I did in this tier: Ramie Turban of Crafting is the clear winner for reasons not usually obvious. MAKE ONE HQ FOR YOURSELF FIRST. Naturally, make a magic carpet worth of Ramie Threads and Bolts first. Then mix and match the NQ’s and HQ’s to give yourself the best chance to HQ turbans. I made a bunch of these! Sell the extra ones slowly over time, and you’ll have even made a profit! Another viable tier for a Commercial Manual. People buy these because 55 is a popular level to “update” DOH gear, and it doubles up as a leve item.
WVR Level 56 – Scrip tier collectibles: Once you hit 56 you’ve now entered the scrip tier! Trust me on this, you’re going to need ALOT of these guys. The sad thing is, weaver isn’t exactly the best class for farming them. AFAIK turbans also show up here, so that’s another option.
Weaver Level 56 to 58
WVR 56 Levequest comparison:
- Crawler Silk: Not a bad choice, since you need them for many things.
Hallowed Ramie Sash of Casting: Haha, this is laughably BAD. Hallowed Ramie Doublet of Aiming:(R) If you think you couldn’t find less value than the Sash of Casting… grats!
While Crawler Silk is more difficult to HQ than the other 2, the sheer difference in cost more than makes up for the ‘fails’. I personally made aloooooooooooot of these since they’re used in end-game crafts anyway. Admittedly, WVR levequests are pretty slim, but you have great options to grind on certain items WITHOUT market saturation (multiple crafter and gatherer body pieces, cloth and thread used by many classes, etc).
As of collectibles, I do not recall seeing one of value during my time leveling this tier. (Checking again)
Weaver Level 58 to 60
WVR 58 Levequest comparison:
- Chimerical Felt: Great, but a 35 durability…
- Chimerical Felt Trousers: Best used in combination with above!
Chimerical Felt Corset of Healing: Hmmm.. I’d just skip this.
Very similar to the first tier. Make a bunch of Chimerical Felt (used in end-game crafts like crawler silk). So theres no loss grinding on these. Again, these convert into multiple crafting and gathering items, as well as used as base ingredients for other DoH classes. Get a mix of HQ and NQ to maximize your chances at as many HQ C.Felt Trousers! Then finally submit or sell as you see fit for your case.
Anyways, this tier is secretly value packed. Not only will you gain money, great materials, and EXP by crafting a ton of Chimerical Felts – then further making them into Chimerical Felt Trousers. These are a useful item (Save one if you’re a gatherer!), which is BiS in 3.0, or can be foresee-ably used in the future for Spiritbonding. If your goal is to hit 60 fast – then turn them in!!! Good choices for all types of player.
As of collectibles, I do not recall seeing one of value during my time leveling this tier. (Checking again). UNLESS YOU’RE DESPERATE FOR SCRIP, do not attempt to amass them using WVR. It will end up in heartbreak, and tears. Culinarian or Goldsmith make better choices.
Still needs some refinement/linking – but in a usable state.
I WONT BE adding the END-GAME LINKS on these until I update the actual guides.
Well if you’re 60 Weaver, I hope you at least have a thread of sanity remaining! Never forget Averil, for even if the strands seem far astray, they’re part of the same cloth… For more awesome FFXIV updates, Like us on Facebook! Message and follow us on Twitter!
