RDM 50 to 60 Basic Activity Flowchart

Activity Quick Notes
Main Story Quests If you have ’em, do ’em. No ifs ands or buts.
Challenge Log Passively complete this as you do other things.
Roulette: Trials ANY TRIAL YOU GET is super quick to finish. Great EXP/Time Spent
Palace of the Dead FAST EXP, but personally, unfun. Doesn’t need ANY GEAR.
Roulette: Alliance Surprisingly very FAST!
Roulette: Leveling Great EXP but sadly you may get “Sastasha tier” relatively unfun dungeons.
Dungeon Spam Queueing up level appropriate dungeons is HUGE exp. Especially with chain bonus.
FATES HW Fates have a bad reputation. Check the extra info clicky below
Sidequests Value varies wildly on proximity to your other goals. Terrible if you can’t fly.
Roulette: MSQ It can be very quick. Somehow I don’t “feel” the value as much. Cape Westwind doe…
Roulette: Guildhest Garbage.
Levequests Better used for DoH or DoL… terrible for combat classes.
Fates at 50 to 60 Info
FATE Zone Lvl Quick Notes
Coerthas Western Highlands 50+ Great! You’ll see some people here trying to reach 51.
Dravanian Forelands 52+ 50/50. Honestly not so bad even solo.
Sea of Clouds ?? Avoid. It generally sucks. Has a wide level range, and map is too big.
Churning Mists 54+ Great! Not a bad map, and is a pretty popular place for people to FATE
Dravanian Hinterlands 58+ Avoid. Lack of Aetheryte. Your gear upon reaching this level won’t be stellar.
Azys Lla 58+ 50/50. it was NEVER a popular place to fate, so expect a “solo flight”.

Keep in mind FATE value is dependent on a lot of things. DPS characters with healer chocobo or some sort of sustain will always out-FATE a tank or healer class with DPS chocobo. It’s just the truth of it all.

It also depends on the “popularity” of the area. FATES become weaker the less they’re completed – so unpopular areas ain’t so bad. But, without any helpers at all – soloing may be slow. Too popular and the FATES become mega chunky.

It’s a balance of many things I can’t quantify – but I hope the above info helps.
