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

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

Welcome! This is a quick resource about the best botany levequests per leve tier. If you’re reading, this you’ll wanna read: Botany Leveling Guide. Not much else to put in this intro – but I suggest you read the short mini-guide before the table. Also, always remember…

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

Inequality!!! Not all botany levequests are equal. Of the 4 types of leves you can get, 2 are far better than the other 2. Like I said: Flower Elf > Catgirl Fishing > Lala/King (equally bad). The problem is the massive difference between the good and the bad… in any case – avoid the latter if you can.

Evaluation Botany Leves: are the what I called the “Flower Elf (FE)” and “Catgirl Fishing (CF)“. If you get the highest possible evaluation rating – you get a chunky EXP bonus. This is what you want! This can be hard to do if your gear is severely outdated.

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

  1. Accept all available botany 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 Botany Levequests (Evaluation)

Updated our Botany Levequests list to include all quests and rated each per tier.

Removed all Temp(L)e levequests since they’re sucky. They cost 10 levequest allowance but only gives x3 XP.
