Gear Check Reminder II

If everyone followed the guide, their gear will now be caught up. Here’s what you should be packing… (Copied from previous page, just to remind you)

CROSS CLASS SKILLS! FIX 'EM UP!

Here are the 10 cross-class skills you should have for all your classes.

ALC ARM BSM CRP CUL GSM LTW WVR
I2 CZ CZ CZ CZ CZ CZ CZ
BB ToT ToT ToT ToT ToT ToT ToT
SH2 I2 BB I2 I2 I2 I2 I2
Muscle BB SH2 SH2 BB BB BB BB
Inno SH2 Muscle Muscle Inno SH2 SH2 SH2
WN Muscle Inno Inno WN Muscle Muscle Muscle
MM Inno WN WN MM WN Inno Inno
FS WN MM MM FS Name MM WN
Rec MM FS FS Name Brand FS MM
OPEN FS Rec Rec Brand Rec Rec FS

I hope you’re familiar with what these are. Muscle is Muscle Memory from CUL, MM and FS are Maker’s Mark and Flawless Synthesis from GSM.

Important Notes:

** CUL and GSM need to cross-class a “Name” and “Brand” of any element.
** All classes except ARM and WVR have access to Reclaim AND Maker’s Mark + Flawless Synthesis.

Since ARM and WVR have to choose between access to “MM+FS” rotations or “Reclaim“, I personally chose “MM+FS” since it’s very unlikely you’ll fail any manual craft with that. Reclaim on the other hand has its uses. Since most rotations require more than 55 CP to complete, you can choose to reclaim if you feel non-HQ is inevitable.

Up to you, buddy…

Reclaim. *snicker*” –

L64 Unlocked Patient Touch

Patient Touch is pretty good, huh? Great for RNG gambling rotations. But for now, you can simply replace the first Hasty Touch II of any rotation with Patient Touch.

It’s optional, but a slight improvement IMO. While it increases your odds to fail by a tiny bit, it increases your HQ success chance but quite a huge margin.

Culinarian Levequests @ 64

Class Level Qty Item Type Levequest Name Best?
CUL 64 3 Rice Vinegar S Sweet Kiss of Death 1
CUL 64 3 Shorlog S A Taste of Home 3
CUL 64 3 Gameni T Souper 2
CUL 64 Levequest discussion

Rice Vinegar is super value! That makes 3 leve tiers in a row, huh? IF YOU EVEN NEED LEVEQUESTS given how good the collectibles are.

Shorlog and Gameni, well, honestly aren’t that bad – check server prices. It’s very unlikely to beat Rice Vinegar, though.

The previous tier levequests are still great: Gyr Abanian Flour and Cottonseed Oil.

CUL 64 to 66: What I did in this tier

If you can do collectibles – do them. You need the scrip, and you save leves. There’s always a cheap one.

Otherwise, choose the best levequest for you. If you wanna do singles, Rice Vinegar should probably replace Gyr Abanian Flour at some point (now or at 65+).

The previous tier triple – Cottonseed Oil is the best bang for buck leve. Looking back at it, Cottonseed Oil is likely the “Omega levequest” for Culinarian. And if you’re into singles – this tier’s Rice Vinegar is where you want to be.

Red Scrips have a lot of uses so you really better get on doing collectibles now while you’re leveling up. It feels considerably worse grinding on them purely for the scrip. You will end up regretting it saying, “Man this would have gotten me to 70 easily…”

Yes. Yes it would.

There are many paths forward, and you will have to majestically screw up to find the “wrong” one.

Grinding Culinarian 64 to 66

Any “ingot” has its uses down the line sometime. Algae Salt, Beet Sugar, Gyr Abanian Flour, Cottonseed Oil, Rice Vinegar… you get the picture.

Aside from this, collectibles.

Important notes and events in this tier

Optional Rotation: L64 40DUR 1058DIFF

These were extremely hard at level 63~64! I TESTED THESE WITH A MINIMUM OF 934 CRAFTSMANSHIP (slightly above the gear check above). I suggest waiting until 65 to do any L64 “ingot” grinding.

Or I could be wrong in my notes – simply test it out first. If Name > Brand > Brand works for you, great. Waiting for the L65 shirt and Mainhand ensures this. Here’s the rotation:

/ac “Comfort Zone” <me> <wait.2>
/ac “Inner Quiet” <me> <wait.2>
/ac “Waste Not” <me> <wait.2>
/ac “Steady Hand II” <me> <wait.2>

/ac “Name of Fire” <me> <wait.2>
/ac “Brand of Fire” <me> <wait.3>
/ac “Brand of Fire” <me> <wait.3>

THIS CERTAIN “MACRO” HAS NAME AND BRAND OF FIRE. PLEASE ADJUST IT TO YOUR CLASS. CUL AND WVR HAVE NO BRAND OR NAME SKILL SO CROSS CLASS ANY ONE OF ‘EM.

L64 80 Durability?

If you’re hellbent on crafting a 64 or 65 with the “base set” described above do so at your own risk. It’s VERY VERY doable using Maker’s Mark type rotations and manual crafting.

But like I said, I WOULD ADVISE HOLDING OUT UNTIL L65! If you plan on crafting for any sort of grindlike activities, the shirt and weapon help loads.

At L65 we will be having the 80 Durability “end-all” rotation.

L65 CUL Class Quest

Rewards are Manipulation II, which is a great skill. Our rotations will be based around it at L66.

You also get an NQ Main hand weapon (sucky), and Kudzu tier left-side NQ (also meh). They’re NOT worth it.

But HQ versions? Hmm…

L65 Gear Update: Kudzu Shirt & Main Hand

HQ Kudzu Robe of Crafting (Cheap Meld: Control III+ x2)

This is a VALUE upgrade since it straight up annihilates our old shirt. It’s worth it. It also feels good buying this knowing all our classes can use it. The other left-side slots are technically optional.

HQ L65 MH: Doman Iron Frypan (Cheap Meld: OPEN / Any)

Can’t complain here. The HQ 65 mainhand completely obliterates previous tiers BiS weapon.

After buying these upgrades, you are functionally equal, or superior, to Heavensward “BiS” crafters that spent millions pentamelding their gear. It’s both a happy and sad moment, as the circle of a crafters life continues…

THE REST OF THE KUDZU TIER IS OPTIONAL: It will make HQing easier with zero HQ materials. It’s completely up to you. I did NOT upgrade gear but it’s easy to see how you will benefit from them.

L65 Rotation Update: 80 Durability

This is a TEMPORARY ROTATION mainly to show you how to complete recipes of this difficulty onward. It will be updated to its final form in ONE LEVEL (66), so it’s up to you if you wanna learn this one. It’s very similar to it’s final evolution.

But here’s the thing – I experimented with this rotation at L66, but I can only imagine extreme niche scenarios wherein “I2 CSIIIx4 + CSIIIx1” (my prior rotation) is better than “MM + I2 CSIIx4”. Lemme know. But, I’m pretty damn sure this works from 65.

L66 Gear Update: Offhand

HQ Doman Iron Culinary Knife is a massive stat upgrade, and you should be buying or making one of these. If you want to meld it, Control III+.

L66 Unlocks Prudent Touch

Prudent Touch. Read it.

With Prudent Touch and Manipulation II,
we will now rise into godhood.

 

Culinarian Leveling 66 to 68

I’ll put it up here since it’s very important: The following rotations are “the final form” of both 40 and 80 durability crafts. You can use these “macros” to learn how to manual craft them.

L66+ “Obliterator Rotations”

L66+ 40DUR 'Annihilator'

As implied, this rotation will crush any 40 durability from here on out.

L66+ 80DUR 'It that Destroys'

And this one will eradicate 80 durability recipes from now onwards.

While I can’t say I tested every niche “undergeared” scenario, this work of art CRUSHED every recipe at or near its level.

/ac “Muscle Memory” <wait.3>
/ac “Comfort Zone” <wait.2>

However...

I did not test these under all stress tests to prevent stupidity like “I have L62 main hand and L63 offhand and tried to craft L70 Ingot“. These recipes will carry you past certain gear upgrades at certain times. But don’t be greedy man, upgrade your damn gear to be safe.

I did not test these on recipes absurdly higher than my current level. Be responsible. They’re good rotations absolutely brimming with value but please… test it out first if you know you’re doing something dumb.

As long as your gear is up to date (the final mandatory gear upgrade is 67 main hand)

“Here… Now… Your ascendance is complete.”
– Mahiko “Deus Factorem” San

Leveling from here is mostly a formality, and it’s only a matter of time before you hit 70. Just a little more to go!

Culinarian Levequests @ 66

Class Level Qty Item Type Levequest Name Best?
CUL 66 3 Egg Foo Young S No Othard Choice 2
CUL 66 3 Persimmon Pudding S Persimmony Snicket 2
CUL 66 3 Nomad Meat Pie T West Meats East 3
CUL 66 Levequest discussion

While none of these are terribly expensive, they are much more of a hassle compared to any of the previous godlike tier leves. You have a suitable “omega levequest” for both singles and triples at this point – as well as a vast array of collectibles to choose from… These levequests do not matter.

CUL 66 to 68: What I did in this tier

If you can do collectibles – do them. You need the scrip, and you save leves. There’s always a cheap one.

I cannot stress enough how there are many viable paths to progress. I just went for collectibles all the way, and simply processed and sold all previous tier materials.

Grinding Culinarian 66 to 68

As mentioned in the previous tier, most of the 40 durability crafts are worth it OK (barring Tofu which isn’t so widely used…?). If you’re grinding you may as well grind on collectibles…

Important notes and events in this tier

L66 Off Hand Weapon

For CUL, that would be Doman Iron Culinary Knife. HQ version of this is mandatory.

L67 Main Hand Weapon, Focused Synthesis

For CUL, that would be Doman Steel Frypan Caliente. HQ version of this is mandatory.

L67 also unlocks Focused Synthesis, which is a damn good skill. I used it in many a fresh 70 rotation to “proc” Manipulation II in the latter end of progress.

L68 CUL Class Quest

The rewards are meh. You get a choice of any Tier V crafting materia, which is welcome I guess. Choose whichever you need (honestly, CP is a good bet). Or what’s most expensive.

You also get the L68 NQ off-hand, which is pretty bad.

Finally, hitting 68 gives you Focused Touch, whose primary use is to squeeze one more touch unsupported by Steady Hand.

L68 Marid Leather Bolero? 68HQ Offhand?

L68 Marid Leather Bolero of Crafting HQ (Cheap melded with Competence III+ Command III+) I would say now it’s mandatory. It should spiritbond fast enough so you won’t feel too bad about it. I initially thought against it, but I’m gonna go ahead and recommend this.

L68 HQ Doman Steel Culinary Knife? Honestly, I didn’t bother and it didn’t affect me. At least we save one gear piece worth of upgrades.

Culinarian Leveling 68 to 70

“There are two type of people who reach this hallowed place. Those who have Leves… And those who do not.”
– Mahiko “Did not” San.

How painful the final step is will largely depend on how FAST you clawed upwards. Having said that, if you took it easy and HAVE LEVES – abuse the living daylights out of them since they will serve you almost no purpose once your DoH levels are done.

Culinarian Levequests @ 68

CUL 68 3 Doman Tea S Fits to a Tea 1

CUL 68 Levequest discussion

Doman Tea is EASILY the best and cheapest of this tier. If you can justify the small gains in EXP to use this levequest over any of the previous ones, this is the one.

Chirashi-zushi and Jerked Jhammel Leves are atrocious in comparison.

But again, the previous tier god leves are likely to be more attractive to the average joe.

CUL 68 to 70: What I did in this tier

If you can do collectibles – do them. You need the scrip, and you save leves. There’s always a cheap one.

Well, it was easy enough to get here – so it’s going to be easy enough to finish it off.

I hate so sound like a broken record but – there are many paths forward and you’re going to have to try REALLY REALLY hard to fail. Choose among the plethora of amazing leves, or todays cheap collectible.

Just a little more, friend.

Grinding Culinarian 68 to 70

The EXP you get from the cheap low level ingots are gonna be quite low from now on, but it’s worth mentioning that Beet Sugar and Algae Salt are quite important if you plan on amassing scrips.

Important notes and events in this tier

This tiers materials are heavily used

So always check the market board for cheap mats. Whether it’s for red or yellow scrip, lots of crafters use the 68-70 tier materials so they should be abundant and fairly priced off the market board.

L68 Optional Upgrades: HQing is hard

As I mentioned previously, the 68 Main Hand is OPTIONAL.

With the “Obliterator Rotations” you should be doing very well still. However, do not think for one second that “100% HQ is possible from 0 HQ Mats”. That’s just silly, while leveling.

HQ raw materials in this tier are cheap since high level crafters don’t care about the quality of mats in this tier.

The first option is “Try to get 1/4th of your materials HQ”. So when you craft you have a slight advantage.

You want more consistency? It’s time for optional upgrades, then, which are the rest of the Marid Leather / Serge Tier.

L70 CUL Class Quest

The rewards are quite good. You get ALL Tier V crafting materia, as well as the Stroke of Genius trait.

The class quests are pretty decent, so there’s that. Aside from lore, the hype on reaching 70 is more of a relaxed “Finally…”

Culinarian Level 70 and Beyond

Welp! That’s about it for Stormblood content! The grind is over – for now.

Farming Tier IV, V and VI Crafting Materia: You should, at least, be aware on how to obtain these. You’re gonna be melding your 70 set according to you needs soon enough.

  • Tier IV crafting materia is quite cheap these days since you only need 25 red scrip to buy one. As such, they’re also reasonable off the MB.
  • Tier V crafting materia can be picked up for 400 red scrips, and is a byproduct of many people trying to spiritbond for Tier VI.
  • Tier VI is well… Expensive.

It’s time to farm Scrips! You need A LOT of red scrips for the Master V crafting books. Get on it now. The yellow scrip weapon is actually not bad, you can opt to get that too.

I’ll make a more detailed “Crafting Endgame” checklist or mini-guide soon, if it’s even needed…?

With this you’ve gotten past “the hard part”, which is catching up to the required gear power levels! Congrats!

60 thoughts on “FFXIV Culinarian Leveling Guide (Stormblood Updated!)”

  1. For people lazy like me, for levels 45-50. You can buy mulled tea from a vendor in the Kugane markets. I got a stack or 99 for about 25k gil, which was about enough to get from 45-50. Only downside is that this costs more leves.

  2. I don’t understand why you would use hasty touch 2 over hasty touch 1, it’s only 10% more success for a whole 7cp i haven’t personally really found it worth the cp

  3. Should change lvl 20 Culinarian Guild Quest item name be Dried Prunes/Plums for some people who doesn’t know English or doesn’t read the dialogues.

  4. Did the triple walnut bread leve get nerfed? It only gives 5000 exp for me. Seems very wasteful when it’s asking for so much.

      1. When the muffin is the collectable it requires 1900 points to qualify. Using HQ Yak Milk starts you at 2040, so it is prime for using a macro to mass produce them while saving leves for other craft skills.

  5. So a quick Question: The 0-15 set only gets me to lv 12. That is with making half of everything by hand then quick synthing the rest. Also lacking the Company-issue Engineering Scroll.

    Recommend adding that if you fall short, buying some Tiger Cod off the market (can also be bought in Limsa for 36gil but market for me has always been far cheaper) and making salt cod helps close the gap, can also go for lavender oil and cider if you’re also BTN or if the lavender and apples are cheep on the markets.

    1. The math doesn’t add up for 0-15. You need 130,580 EXP for 0-15. The list calls for the creation of 260 items. That’s just over 500 EXP each as a reward. Half of these will not give 200, even boosted with the CG Scroll (Salt, Syrup, Sugar). You will be to level 5 before finishing the salt.

      I did this, exactly as described above, with the CG Scroll. I also completed each of the guild missions when they became available (crafting the additional Grilled Trout and Grilled Dodo…as well as a stack of Olive Oil. Still level 12.

      1. It’s not meant to get you there 100% of the time. RESTED + MANUALS + some good exp on manual crafts should get you up there (I cannot account for RNG). Also, it provides mats that weren’t buyable (I think you can buy table salt now) which you should have a stock of. It’s more of a value move.

  6. For scrips at Lv 58-60, if you’ve got botanist levelled up, and ESPECIALLY if you’ve been muffin spamming and so have way more yakmilk than you started with: Frozen Spirits actually is lower level than Marron Glace, and yields more scrips.

  7. So for the 20-25 tier, you suggest the walnut bread triple turnin. This will give about 15.5k exp nq. However, this also requires 9 walnut breads per turnin, making this option not at all material efficient. I found it best to continue to use the walnut bread courier from the 15-20 tier, as this option onky uses 1 walnut bread for turnin, and still gives 13k exp.

    Loce your guides! This is probably the 4th or 5th I’ve used for crafting/gathering. Keep up the good work!

    1. I’m going to assume you were able to HQ Ishgardian Muffins at 52? I’m finding it a bit hard ;( (I have the old 2.0 gear) 359 Craftsmanship/344Control 340CP

  8. For levels 15-20 the Leve called Rustic Repast in Aleport is by far the best way to go. You can buy the Chicken and Mushrooms from an NPC for 37 gil. The leve gives 12218 exp and 185 gil and is a quick run from the leve giver to the receiver.

  9. ok so from what im noticing, courier leves are the best EXP of any tier, meaning if you were to have someone helping you level rather than doing it alone, would you consider purely sticking to couirer leves as they give the most bang:buck ratio in terms of leves:exp?

    1. For the most part, yes. If cost is not an issue, courier leves are great. One thing courier sucks at? TIME. At level 35 onward, courier leves are slow as hell since they are NOT NEAR ANY AETHERYTE, and can increase “time spent” to level by up to 10 times.

      1. I tried cornmeal but I find dark vinegar to be better. It uses the same grapes I was making juice out of and pays over 90k for hq

  10. In the level 1-15 guide you need 99 rye to make 33 rye flour not 33

    awesome guide man really helped me out keep up the good work

  11. With Night Milk purchasable from the Reputation Vendor (Sahuagin) now, it makes Rolanberry Cheese for level 40-45 and the Rolanberry Lassi for 45-50 great choices. Highly recommend doing those now.

    1. ABSOLUTELY!!!! I was going to comment this, I have been using this guide and I was looking at Pastry fish and I cannot see how that is going to be easy whatsoever. Good guide but I really didn’t have to follow it exactly as I had lvled botany and had kept many things handy with retainer space especially HQ items.

  12. Haven’t made any comparision with the others, but the Gridanian Walnut’s has severely jumped up in price (at least on my server), especially since they long back ago (10/15/2013) removed them from the Shopkeep in Drybone. Is it still the best, and most valid choice to skill up on (lvl 15-20)?

    1. First off sorry for the super late comment! I also noticed the oddly high price of the walnut, making walnut bread a less ideal choice for those without (or too lazy to fetch with) botanist.

  13. Salt Cod Puffs aren’t as bad as the guide makes it seem, since NQ salt cod can be bought from either the potwatch or independent culinarian npc near each town’s market board for 15g.
    Other than that, great guide!

  14. I’m not sure what/when it changed, but the levemete in St. Coinach’s Find for level 45 leves asks for “cups of Rolanberry Lassi” instead of Tomato Pie. The description still sounds like Tomato Pie, but the objective itself states otherwise.

    1. Also! Thank you for the awesome guide =) With it’s help, and 99 leve allowances, I got from 1-50 in about 3 days and a total of ~12 hours.

      On my server, I was actually able to MAKE money buying leve items off the market boards and just running leves from 25-50. I literally did not have to craft a single thing during that time and I made ~15,000g profit. Crazy.

    2. It could possibly have changed in a recent patch due to the difficulty of tomato pies craft. I will investigate!

  15. Even while using a scroll and manually crafting every single thing I still only made it to the very start of level 12. (Second to last pie made me level) I think they may have changed some stuff around in the latest patches.

    1. Crafting the same item won’t yield the same EXP each time! The more quality you manage to get, the higher exp you will receive! In the case of not reaching 15, you may want to use the Courier leve of your tier, and the “reverse courier”

    2. I was lvl 11 and just got on my pie dough grind. I bought enough material’s to make 99 of them (less then 2000 gil). I’m now lvl 14 about to run it back.also I’m not using scroll’s

  16. This is superb, thank you for spending the time to compile and write this up. Very much looking forward to the guides for other trades. Just hope that it’s not too affected by the Leve XP changes in 2.1 (some singles bumped up, triples bumped down?).
