If you’ve been here before and need quick navigation:
WVR Level [0-15] | [15-35] | [35-50] | [50-60] | [60-64] | [64-70]

So you decided you wanna be a Weaver ey? Well, don’t believe the rumors. It’s NOT EXPENSIVE AT ALL! With some changes that happened along the way, WVR got a lot easier. I’m sorry for the long first page you can just scroll to the Basics or Leveling begins!

Before you begin…

Where is the Weaver’s Guild? How to become a Weaver? You can become a weaver by visiting the Weaver’s Guild in Ul’dah. You just need to reach level 10 in your primary combat class, and you’re good to go!

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:

Weaver Levequests List: A table featuring all levequests for WVR 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!)

Weaver Class Quest Item Reference:

WVR 01: Hempen Yarn
WVR 05: 3x Hempen Breeches
WVR 10: 12x Hempen Cloth
WVR 15: Cotton Scarf, Cotton Shepherds Slops
WVR 20: Cotton Acton (Materia-enhanced)
WVR 25: (HQ) Undyed Velveteen
WVR 30: (HQ) Velveteen Gaiters
WVR 35: (HQ) Linen Shirt
WVR 40: (HQ) Woolen Tights
WVR 45: (All HQ) Woolen Beret, Woolen Gown, Woolen Gaskins
WVR 50: (All HQ) Patrician’s Bottoms, Patrician’s Coatee, Patrician’s Wedge Cap

Just use the above as a quick reference if completing multiple Weaver class quests at once. The 50 to 60 ones are in that specific section of the guide.


How to use this guide!?

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

  • Next class quest Item required.
  • Relevant Weaver levequest locations.
  • WVR 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 WVR’s case is Ul’dah.
  • [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.

You can get to WVR 15 in less than an hour if buy some Company-issue Engineering Scroll and complete your Crafting Log. The GC Scrolls, these can be bought from your GC’s supplier NPC. Below is a list of items needed to complete your crafting log from L1: Hempen Yarn – L15: Cotton Shepherds Slops.

Buy the following items:

  • 62 Wind Shard
  • 77 Lightning Shard
  • 94 Undyed Hempen Cloth
  • 74 Hempen Yarn
  • 24 Undyed Cotton Cloth**
  • 21 Leather

The above Items can MOSTLY be found in the WVR Guild Supplier + Ul’dah Tradecraft Merchant.

The only other NPCs you need to buy from are these:

  • ALC Guild Supplier (Ul’dah) – Cotton Yarn*
  • BSM / ARM Guild Supplier (Limsa) – Undyed Cotton Cloth**

After completing the shopping list above, activate your scroll and be 15++ quick!

RESULTS MAY VARY! (Rested EXP, HQing, etc…)

Ixal Beast Tribe Daily Quests: Bonus Crafting/DoH EXP !

Putting it here to remind or notify you that such a thing exists, but:

I SUGGEST USING THESE ON CRAFTERS L15+ (use on low level if forced)
Since the early levels are quite easy. (But you can unlock it asap)

Starting Quest: A Bad Bladder
NPC & Location: Scarlet at New Gridania (9, 11)
Prerequisite MSQ: Pursuit of the Past

These dailies are best used to push past “bad tiers”, or simply on your highest level non 50 crafter. I suppose you can also use them on crafting classes which are lagging behind for one reason or the other.

If you’re super fresh and have all low level crafters, and happen to unlock it early – you CAN do them now. While I don’t recommend it, I suppose it’s better than them just disappearing!

Weaver 0 to 5: the Beginnings!

[H] 1x Hempen Chausses: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS
[H] 1x Hempen Underpants: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS
[C] 1x Hempen Undershirt: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS
[L] 1x Hempen Halfgloves: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS

**If you choose to, you can buy COMPLETED cloth and yarn from other vendors. It greatly speeds up the process, but you get a little less EXP.

“What is the Courier, Reverse Courier Cycle?” A courier levequest starts from your Hometown (In WVRs case Ul’dah) and ends in the local levemete (In this tiers case Scorpions Crossing). The idea is to get, complete, get, complete in a circle to maximize the EXP of your travel time.

So WVR 01 tier – it’s getting the quest from Ul’dah to submit 1x Hempen Undershirt in Red Rooster Stead, then taking the reverse courier quest from Red Rooster Stead and then submitting 1x Hempen Coif in Ul’dah. This is by the way the fastest+least hassle way to get out of the early tiers.

“How do I get to Scorpion Crossing!?” It’s a non-aetheryte town outside U’dah. Just take the Aethernet to XXX gate and walk a bit outwards.

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 WVR supplier and craft>submit Hempen Halfgloves in Ul’dah.

Weaver Level 05 to 10

All levequest items below have 100% NPC Buyable Materials.

[H] 1x Hempen Tabard: Unnotable.
[H] 1x Amateur’s Dalmatica: Unnotable
[C] 1x Hempen Kecks: Recommended due to high EXP.
[RC] 1x Hempen Acton: Recommended due to high EXP.
[L] 1x Hempen Shepherd’s Tunic: Best single.
[L] 1x Amateur’s Breeches: Unnotable

**Like I mentioned before, you can buy completed cloths and yarns at the expense of EXP. You can even quick synth ‘em.

Courier  <-> Reverse Courier cycle: Nothing much to say here. Materials buyable from WVR supplier (or completed yarns/cloths from other merchants). Doing this cycle yields the chunkiest EXP with the only downside of a little travel time.

Or the best single: While all the items are relatively easy to make and cheap, Hempen Sheperds Tunic might be the ‘easiest’ to make at this point. But don’t sweat the choice between singles in this tier.

Weaver Level 10 to 15

All levequest items below have 100% NPC Buyable Materials.

[H] 1x Cotton Scarf: Unnotable.
[H] 1x Straw Hat: Brainlessly cheap, easy and hassle-free!
[C] 1x Cotton Turban: Recommended due to high EXP.
[RC] 1x Stablehand’s Hat: Recommended due to high EXP.
[L] 1x Hempen Bracers: Unnotable.
[L] 1x Cotton Halfgloves: Unnotable.

Cotton Yarn & Cloth can be bought in: Housing Vendors, Sylph Vendor mainly. (Other vendors sell one or the other only)

Courier  <-> Reverse Courier cycle: With a total cost of 4 Undyed Cotton Cloth and 3 Straw for each cycle, this is dirt cheap. Suck up the travel time and do it.

Or the best single: Damn, Straw Hat needs 3 pieces of straw and a shard. Cheap, easy recipe level, no hassles… this is the go-to single this tier.

Summary of this chunk

Courier / Reverse Courier is best in early tiers

L1: Hempen Undershirt [Ul’dah] / Hempen Coif [Scorpions Crossing] L5: Hempen Kecks [Ul’dah] / Hempen Acton [Scorpions Crossing] L10:  Cotton Turban [Ul’dah] / Stablehand’s Hat [Horizon]

Of course, we also can recommend the best singles:

WVR 1 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Hempen Chausses
WVR 5 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Amateur’s Dalmatica
WVR 10 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Cotton Scarf

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

FFXIV Weaver Levequests (UPDATED)

All Weaving Levequests Information. WVR Levequest locations, leve items needed – and more!

Hey guys! Here is a listing of ALL WEAVING LEVEQUESTS Below level 60. If you’re reading this – you’re going to want to open our Weaver Leveling Guide!

We have a listing of all 3.0 (50+) Levequests here.


Weaver Leves level 20 and above which have marked (R) are REPEATABLE (Thrice). Submitting High-quality Weaver crafted items give DOUBLE EXP REWARDS.

Weaver is a bit different. It’s expensive to level WVR on REPEATABLE LEVE’s unless you’re very rich. You’re better off finding a cost-effective single submission level, and spamming that.
