FFXIV Weaver Leveling Guide

FFXIV Weaver Levelling Guide

As one of the best MMORPGs out there, Final Fantasy XIV garners millions of active players every day. The game offers players a lot of content to explore. From fighting celestial beings to crafting your own items, the popular MMO will provide a fun experience to anyone. One of the core features that fans enjoy very much is Trade Skills, especially regarding Weaving.

FFXIV Weaving

This trade skill is one of the most popular Crafting jobs in FFXIV, and for a good reason. The profession provides players and the marketplace with thousands of high-quality light armor and accessories. Those who have reached the max level of this skill have generated tons of profit from creating the best items and selling them.

As Weavers level up, they gain more access to recipes for crafting better high-quality light armor and accessories. With the max Weaving rank being at 90, gamers might find it intimidating to reach the pinnacle of this trade skill. Fortunately, leveling up this profession is not impossible.

How to Start Weaving?

Before players start their journey as craftsmen in this profession, they will have to be initiated in the Weaver's Guild first. However, Weavers will need to be at least level 10 in the Disciple of War or Disciple of Magic to make them eligible for the guild. It would be a good idea to level up a bit before starting the quests to become a Weaver.

Gamers need to locate the Guild's Receptionist, Maronne, in Ul'dah - Steps of Thal. To obtain their starting gear, aspiring Weavers will have to finish two initiation quests: "Way of the Weaver" and "My First Needle" to get their starting gear. Later on, players should accept the Redolent Rose's quests to fully jumpstart their career in this profession.

Basic Information about Weaving

The majority of the experience for this trade skill will be obtained from quests and levequests. Ideally, players should just focus on Trade Skill quests provided by the guild until they reach level 10. Once they hit this milestone, then they can start doing levequests.

Weaver has one of the easiest to acquire materials in all Crafting classes. The components for their recipes can all be reached via essential gathering. It is ideal for putting in some levels in the Botanist and Miner professions since Weavers will be relying on the ingredients these trade skills can gather. It is highly encouraged to pick items in bulk to save more time.

Unfortunately, processing Weaver crafts can be tedious since each item requires multi-step crafting. While Weaving only requires basic materials, these ingredients need to be processed into more complex materials before craftsmen can start turning them into the desired gear. This multi-stage crafting adds more time to the processing time of equipment.

Fortunately, all the hard work in these complicated processing steps is very profitable. While Weavers need clothes and their complex ingredients for crafting, they can opt to sell these materials to other crafters and professionals. These items sell consistently since many gamers also need them to make their own gear. However, it is advised that Weavers should only sell surplus materials that they no longer need.

The most important thing to remember about Weaving is that, at the end-game stage, it becomes one of the most profitable trade skills in FFXIV. Aside from making light armor and accessories, Weavers can also craft rare cosmetic items. These things are prevalent for Glamour, which many players tend to focus on in the latter phases of the MMO.

Note: Characters get a 3% EXP bonus in their activities when they are well-fed, so players need to make sure they are stacked on food.

Level 50 to 60

At this phase, quests and levequests won't be enough to take Weavers to the next bracket. They will have to craft items outside jobs to compensate for the missing exp. Here are the several craftable pieces that gamers should make:

While in this bracket, gamers can now complete "The Social Knitwork" quest. Players should just keep doing missions until they reach level 60, which allows them to accept the "Never Leave Without a Goodbye" quest.

Level 60 to 70

At this point, Weavers should locate Keltraeng and accept levequests from this NPC. Here are the missions that gamers should complete:

  • Apparent Apparel (Level 62) x2 – requires Kudzu Tunic of Striking

Players should also do the last set of quests from Redolent Rose to help reach level 70. After getting this rank, the "Send Me An Angel" quest should be completed.

Level 70 to 80

By this point, gamers will notice no more class-specific quests available for their characters. The primary source of exp here comes from levequests and the Crystarium. This area hosts "The Crystalline Mean," a small gathering spot for certain NPCs. This zone can be accessed by finishing a quest with the same name.

Weavers should accept missions for the "Facet of Crafting." However, these quests are shared with the Carpenter and Leatherworker classes. This point means that once players have done these tasks in one profession, they can no longer do them in the other.

There are still some levequests that gamers can do to help boost the exp received. Here are some missions available from the local Levemete, Eirikur:

  • Hunting Season (Level 74) x4 – requires Pixie Cotton Hat of Striking

  • Dwarven Cotton x2
  • Sea Swallow Leather x1
  • Halgai Mane x1
  • Grade 1 Mind Alkahest x1

Level 80 to 90

At this point, players will rely on several things to level up to 90. These tasks are more complicated than their usual quests since some of them can only be done once a day or once per job. Here are the activities that Weavers should take part in:

  • Grand Company Deliveries – can only be done once a day
  • Custom Deliveries – can be done 12 per week
  • Collectables – provides the most considerable bulk of Weaving exp
  • Levequests – great alternative to Collectables
  • Sharlayan Quests – has easy quests for bonus exp
  • Crafting Items

Upon hitting level 90, gamers can now ease up on grinding quests. Players that have reached the max rank can now make every Weaving craftable available. Hardcore Weavers tend to focus on creating Glamour cosmetics since they yield a decent profit.
