WVRQuest NPCAverilIshgard (Astrologicum)

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.

Weaver Level: [0-15] [15-35] [35-50]

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!

41 thoughts on “FFXIV Weaver Leveling Guide (01 to 60)”

  1. 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

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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)

  8. 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.

  9. 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!!!

  10. 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)

  11. [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.

  12. 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

  13. 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!

  14. 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

  15. 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.
