FFXIVGuild Leveling Guide Directory

Just a tiny post showing all combat class leveling guides

Just a quick directory listing down all leveling guides for combat classes. Mainly to save menu space, which is in preparation for the site visual update.

Some are still missing, as these guides are what I was making before Heavensward was released. I hope to delete this sentence soon!

The job leveling guides are missing quite a bit of them, ey? I plan to update this very soon.

In any case, while this mini-guide doesn’t have any unique info… I need to make it for menu space saving and I guess it’s not a bad thing to have anyways. (This goes hand-in-hand with the whole site visual redesign)

FFXIV Armorsmith Leveling Guide (01 to 60)

UPDATED to 60! “How bad can it be?” Armorer power leveling to 60 ASAP! ARM Levequest Items comparisons and value moves per tier!

ffxiv-ARM-armorsmithing-armorsmith-leveling-guide-arr

Tired of getting beat up and decided to make your own armor, huh? Let this Armorsmith leveling guide help you find your way! Hopefully, your journey to 60 won’t leave you with dents! First page is very long – but you can use our quick scroll to: Basics | Leveling begins!

If you’ve been here before and need quick navigation:
ARM Level: [0-15][15-35][35-50] [50 to 60]

Suiting up for the Holy See of Ishgard? [Armorsmithing Level 50 to 60]! Check it out!

Before you begin…

Where is the Armorsmith Guild? How to become an Armorsmith? You can become a Armorsmith by visiting the Armorsmiths Guild in Limsa. If you have at least L10 in any combat class – you’re good to start hammerin’!

Ok so we’re in the middle of updating ALL crafting guides – We recommend the use of a few guides during your leveling process, in varied current state of usefulness:

Armorsmith Levequests List: A table featuring all levequests for ARM 01 to 50. (100% updated)

Crafting General Leveling Tips: This guide was made back right after beta. It’s not updated, but it’s missing two key features: Ixal and Challenge Log. (Old but still useful) (Needs some Mahiko Updates!)

Crafting Gear Guide: is still useful, but written a long time ago. It’s messy but contains a great table as to when you can and should update core pieces. (Old guide, kinda messy(Needs some Mahiko Updates!)

Armorsmith Class Quest Item Reference:

ARM 01: Bronze Ingot
ARM 05: 3x Bronze Hoplons
ARM 10: 12x Bronze Plate
ARM 15: Decorated Bronze Barbut, Bronze Buckler
ARM 20: Iron Hoplon (Materia-Enhanced)
ARM 25: (HQ) Steel Ingot
ARM 30: (HQ) Steel Chainmail
ARM 35: (HQ) Steel Frypan
ARM 40: (HQ) Mythril Cuirass
ARM 45: (All HQ) Mythril-plated Caligae, Reinforced Mythril Elmo, Mythril Sollerets
ARM 50: (HQ) Cobalt Haubergeon (Melded with: Heaven’s Eye III Materia)

Just use the above as a quick reference if completing multiple Armorsmith class quests at once. 50 to 60 is found in that segment of the guide.

How to use this guide!?

Each listed tier has some self-explanatory sections such as:

  • Next class quest Item required.
  • Relevant Armorsmith levequest locations.
  • ARM Levequests items discussion (tier specific).

We will be using a few amount of ‘codes’ here to make your life easier, as long as you understand them.

  • [H] : HOMETOWN, which in ARMs case is Limsa.
  • [L] : LOCAL levemete. This changes every tier.
  • [C] : COURIER LEVE. From [H] to [L].
  • [RC] : REVERSE COURIER. From [L] to [H].
  • [R] : REPEATABLE , or a “Triple”.

Basic [H] and [L] leves are the BASELINE for value. [C] and [RC] give more than the basics, but require travel time. [R] gives the most of all, but is a massive time and material sink.

In this guide I will try to recommend the best levequest for each type.

Useful links to have open: ARM Leves List | DoH Gear Guide | “Soon”

Armorsmithing: The beginning!

[H] 1x Bronze Skillet: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS
[H] 3x Bronze Ingot: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS
[C] 3x Bronze Plate: Recommended due to large EXP.
[RC] 1x Bronze Alembic: Recommended due to large EXP.
[L] 1x Bronze Hoplon: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS
[L] 1x Bronze Rivets: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS

“What is the Courier, Reverse Courier Cycle?” A courier levequest starts from your Hometown (In ARMs case Limsa) and ends in the local levemete (In this tiers case Red Rooster Stead). The idea is to get, complete, get, complete in a circle to maximize the EXP of your travel time.

So ARM 01 tier – it’s getting the quest from Limsa to submit 3x Bronze Plate in Red Rooster Stead, then taking the reverse courier quest from Red Rooster Stead and then submitting 1x Bronze Alembic in Limsa. This, by the way. is the fastest+least hassle way to get out of the early tiers.

“How do I get to Red Rooster Stead!?” It’s a non-aetheryte town outside Limsa. Just take the Aethernet to XXX gate and walk a bit east.

The other way to spend leves in these low tiers is to “spam the best single leve”. In this tiers case, is to buy materials from the ARM supplier and craft>submit Bronze Rivets in Limsa.

ARM is a bit special… You can begin your early levels (and subsequently the beginning of every tier) by crafting as many Bronze Ingot/Rings/Rivets and Plates as soon as they’re available to craft. Even quick synthing 20-99 of each shouldn’t be too expensive. This method is great to preserve you much needed levequests, and should be taken advantage of in this early phase (for a tiny tradeoff in gil). In case you’ll ignore this little section, don’t worry – I’ll be sure to repeat myself in future tiers, hehe.

Like I said, you can do this much easier/lazier if you buy completed Bronze Ingots from Limsa Lower Decks (8,11).

Armorsmith 05 to 10

All levequest items below have 100% NPC Buyable Materials.

[H] 1x Bronze Barbut: Unnotable.
[H] 1x Bronze Haubergeon: Unnotable.
[C] 1x Bronze Sallet: Recommended.
[RC] 1x Bronze Chain Coif: Recommended.
[L] Bronze Scutum: Unnotable.
[L] Bronze Sollerets: Recommended.

Again reminding you about my comment about Ingots/Rings/Rivets/Plates from previous tier.

Courier  <-> Reverse Courier cycle: Nothing noteworthy here, again, the mats are all obtainable from ARM supplier.

Or the best single: While the cost between the choices on singles is irrelevant, Bronze Sollerets win in the least hassle department.

Armorsmith 10 to 15

All levequest items below have 100% NPC Buyable Materials.

[H] 1x Iron Skillet: Unnotable
[H] 1x Bronze Plate Belt: Unnotable
[C] 1x Bronze Sabatons: Recommended.
[RC] 1x Bronze Gauntlets: Recommended.
[L] 1x Brass Alembic: Unnotable
[L] 1x Amateur’s Skillet: Recommended.

Again reminding you about my comment about Ingots/Rings/Rivets/Plates from previous tier.

Courier  <-> Reverse Courier cycle: Nothing notable about the items here… Both of them have materials that are available from the ARM Supplier.

Or the best single: Amateurs Skillet is the easiest to craft, and least hassle amongst the bunch here. While it doesn’t really matter which single you choose here, skillet definitely wins by a few inches.

Summary of this chunk

Courier / Reverse Courier is best in early tiers

Level 1: Bronze Plate [Limsa] / Bronze Alembic [Red Rooster Stead] Level 5: Bronze Sallet [Limsa] / Bronze Chain Coif [Red Rooster Stead] Level 10:  Bronze Sabatons [Limsa] / Bronze Gauntlets [Swiftperch]

Of course, we also can recommend the best singles:

ARM 1 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Bronze Skillet
ARM 5 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Bronze Barbut
ARM 10 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Iron Skillet

ARM Level [0-15] [15-35] [35-50]
[50 to 60]
