Last night, thanks to a combination of scrip turn-ins and finishing up some leves, I finally reached my first level 80 crafter on my main – carpenter. I already have one level 80 crafter on my RP Alt – turns out that alchemist is pretty easy to zoom through with leves this time around. But that’s because it’s highly self-sufficient compared to many of the other crafting jobs I’ve messed with so far. As you can see, I also had to take goldsmith up a few levels to do this well. That’s because the leve I was doing required nuggets, along with thread from weaver, and a ton of wood for each turn in. But this was nothing compared to the leves for goldsmith itself. I might have tried to level it more if it weren’t for the fact that almost every leve recipe required at least one, if not two, gathers from timed nodes. Gold itself, which is a timed node, seems to be required for almost everything, which is a bit crazy. Especially since you really need … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Level 80 Carpenter!

I don’t have any fancy new gear to show for it yet – my scrip gear got me all the way without a problem – but I finished leveling my first gatherer to 80 last night! While I’ve been casually working at this on and off throughout the week, I had no real intention to complete this goal so quickly. Here’s some things I learned along the way: Do the daily Grand Company turn insDo the weekly scrip deliveriesKeep up with the Crystarium deliveries as you level if possibleDo the leves in the Crystarium to fill in the gaps None of that is really a surprise. But I do want to talk about the Crystarium deliveries for a moment. Crystarium Deliveries These are a series of level-based quests that give almost a full level of experience if you turn them in at high quality. In fact, I suggest to always make sure it’s high quality, otherwise, you’re doing yourself a major disservice. There are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to gathering … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Shadowbringers – Level 80 Botanist!
I started leveling fishing on Amon as just a side-thing on Thursday night. While it is part of my goals to level his fishing, I had no intentions on getting it to 80 in such a short time. It just… wasn’t very hard to do! Especially with the Crystarium turn-ins dedicated only to fishing. Finishing these turn-ins also nets you a pretty neat title! By Friday night, I was halfway through 79. There was no struggle to this, really not much of a grind. I followed the info on this Reddit post to get it done. Basically I: Started by doing the first Crystarium turn-in which got me to 71 with all high quality fishGot to 72 by turning in the Xanthic Bass leve From there, I spearfished in the Southeast Source for the Gaeyi leveI also hit up every Crystarium turn-in as they popped through the levels, making sure all turn-ins were High QualityOnce I got to level 76, I switched gears to the spearfishing in the North Lake Tusi Mek’ta for the Gourmand Crab leve – as the Reddit … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Otherworld Angler – Level 80 Fisher Twice Over!
Though I’ve still be somewhat lazy in reaching my goals for this month, I did finally achieve the one objective I’ve been wanting to hit for months — I’ve leveled my Ninja to 50! As a bonus, I actually did all the job quests up to 50, too, and sorted the armor situation for the job. Now, this isn’t a very hard task to do, but seeing this is the third Ninja I’ve leveled to 50 (both Tai and Zemi alts have a level 50 Ninja), the motivation to get it done wasn’t super high. However, this does mark the last DPS class on my main to reach 50! Now, all I have left under level 50 is Astro, Warrior, and Dark Knight. I believe one of my year goals is to get them all to 50. Seeing they’re all at least level 40, and squads are a huge help, that should be do-able. The other thing I worked on this weekend was finishing up all the quests I needed to do to be ready for Path 4.3 content. That comes out tomorrow, and FFXIV is down all day today, so I only … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Level 50 Ninja & Getting Ready for Patch 4.3
Last week, I said enough’s enough and really buckled down to finish my monthly goal and push my level 43 Astro to level 50. This mostly just required a handful of squad runs, like I knew it would, and at one run a day, I had that knocked out on Saturday. I even braved going into Aurum Vale with my squad… which… wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. The Coincounter boss can be pretty devastating on a squad if they stand in his swing, but other than that, I found it surprisingly okay. In fact, I earned level 50 on my second run of AV. I’m glad to be rid of that place for now. I did stay dedicated and ensured all of the job quests for Astro were also up to date. It was nice to finally sort out all of my sub-level 50 gear for healers, and clear up some of my inventory space. This is, after all, the whole reason I’m leveling these jobs. I suppose my next goal is to focus on my Ninja quests from 50-60. I also would really like to try to tackle the last … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Level 50 Astro, Finally
