FFXIV Weaver Leveling Guide (Updated for Shadowbringers)
Final Fantasy XIV is an MMORPG that’s still continually visited by both new players and long-time MMO enthusiasts alike. Visually breathtaking and accompanied by a soundtrack that really sets the tone for every situation, FFXIV is known to be one of the best MMORPGs to date. Like any other good MMORPG, FFXIV gives you a multitude of choices when it comes to picking your class. This flexibility grants players the privilege to try different ones and see which class fits them the most. Among these, the Weaver stands out as one of the most popular classes that players can take. With the ability to turn fabrics and basic fibers into a master class armor and accessories that multiple classes can wear, being a Weaver in FFXIV is like a labor of love; it is hard work, but the satisfaction you get from doing it makes it worth it. In our FFXIV Weaver Leveling Guide, we’ll be discussing what the Weaver class has to offer, how you can be one, and most importantly, how you can effectively level up with it.
How do you start your journey as a weaver?
So you want to be a Weaver, huh? Well, you’ve come to the right place! To become a Weaver, head on over to the Weaver’s Guild that’s located in the bustling city of Ul’dah. This city is considered to be the most important city in the world of FFXIV. Mostly because besides the Weaver’s Guild, the Miner’s, Goldsmith’s, Gladiator’s, and Alchemist’s Guilds are all located here. Once you locate the Weaver’s Guild, simply speak with the receptionist. From there, you’ll be able to start your first quest and soon after formally become a Weaver. But before you jump in and rush to the Weaver’s Guild, note that you have to have at least level 10 in Disciple of War or Disciple of Magic to make the cut as a Weaver. In the next sections of this FFXIV Weaver Leveling Guide, we’ll break down the steps you’ll need to take as you level up.
Weaver Level 1-15: Why not take small steps?
Getting to level 15 as a Weaver is fairly easy, and you won’t even need levequests for it. To get as many experience points as possible, we recommend doing the Grand Company turn-ins and crafting the highest level item without failing. Accepting class quests are also a huge help since you can already craft the items or armor needed beforehand. If you want to take the easy way out, you can just get an engineering manual and crafting as many items as possible—provided you have enough resources to do so.
Weaver Level 15-30: Let’s focus on Levequests, shall we?
This is where things start to go a tad bit hectic. From level 15 to 30, we highly suggest doing as many levequests as possible. If you’re not familiar with the term, levequests are also known as guildleves. This type of quest is highly effective for grinding levels as they are repeatable—thereby making them great for earning Gil and items as well. Levequests can be performed again and again, so long as you have Leve allowances. Leve allowances are what you earn every 12 hours. More specifically, players are able to earn three Leve allowance per 12 hours. What you can do is to either save them up early on for you to use during your grinding sessions or pick which levequests bring about the most experience.
Weaver Level 30-70: Catch me in the Splendors Exchange, how about that?
The leveling process for level 30-70 is pretty much the same, but with some additional quests that you can partake of. Some of these quests that we’re talking about are the Moogle Beast Tribe quests and the availability of the Splendors Exchange. The beast tribe quests are a great source of experience points for any class that’s over level 50. In order to unlock this type of quest, you’ll need to undergo 20 sidequests first. On the other hand, the Splendors Exchange is the first custom delivery system in FFXIV. The Splendors Exchange is similar to the Grand Exchange, but requires you to submit collectibles instead of regular items.
An Increase in the Level Cap?
Thanks to the Shadowbringers update, the level cap of the Weaver class has increased from 70 to 80. However, the developers didn’t put enough leveling content. So the only choice we can present in this FFXIV Weaver Leveling Guide is to craft high-level collectibles for the custom delivery services. When you reach level 80, you should be able to craft any crafting and gathering equipment that you want.
