Make it rain event coming to the gold saucer. As someone who spends an absurd amount of time at the saucer, I want this playing when I walk in the hall that week:
I went during the day and tried getting there from town rather than where I last saw her. No problems, and I’m further along now.Then there's an NPC girl you take them to IIRC. But you may be past this already, it's been 24 hours.
This will get you from 1-15.Any good "how to get into crafting" guides out there? I have a 19 weaver from way back when, and all I remember is an insane number of subcombines, and not being able to actually find all my raw materials in one easy place. Had me running all over Ul'dah to find crap. Any guide that says "you need 20 BLAH from HERE, and 10 BLAH from HERE" would be great to reduce running around.
After that... use this guide. Past 15, you ether need to get ingredients from the Market Board or go out and get them yourself. Some stuff can be bought from the ARR Beast Tribes (Sylphs, Kobolds, Amalja) once you've unlocked them (getting favor from them can unlock more) and this will USUALLY be cheaper than the marketboard but not always. But anything else will ether need to be gathered from Botany/Mining or bought.You can get to WVR 15 in less than an hour if buy some Company-issue Engineering Scroll and complete your Crafting Log. The GC Scrolls, these can be bought from your GC’s supplier NPC. Below is a list of items needed to complete your crafting log from L1: Hempen Yarn – L15: Cotton Shepherds Slops.
Buy the following items:
- 62 Wind Shard
- 77 Lightning Shard
- 94 Undyed Hempen Cloth
- 74 Hempen Yarn
- 24 Undyed Cotton Cloth**
- 21 Leather
- 11 Cotton Yarn*
- 9 Animal Sinew
- 9 Straw
- 7 Hard Leather
- 6 Copper Ingot
- 4 Moko Grass
- 3 Cock Feather
- 2 Cotton Boll
- 2 Bronze Rivet
- 1 Bronze Ingot
- 1 Beast Sinew
- 1 Carnation
The above Items can MOSTLY be found in the WVR Guild Supplier + Ul’dah Tradecraft Merchant.
The only other NPCs you need to buy from are these:
- ALC Guild Supplier (Ul’dah) – Cotton Yarn*
- BSM / ARM Guild Supplier (Limsa) – Undyed Cotton Cloth**
After completing the shopping list above, activate your scroll and be 15++ quick!
You can do the quests still. Same with all beast tribes; they want you to be able to level alts and acquire currency still. Getting them to Allied (through the Beast Tribe Alliance quests once all the Beast Tribes in an expansion are Sworn/Blood Sworn) just maxes out the amount of XP they give per a quest. I think going from 60-70 takes maybe two weeks from just doing Namazu stuff?I cheesed my way through quite a bit standing in front of the Slyph Vendor. The goblin vendor is for Alchemy etc
Also, get to 50 and a few days of Moogle dailies will get you to 60 with no purchased material. Maybe a few more days without Road to 60.

I’ve been leveling crafters to make house stuff because it would have cost too much otherwise. My FC has been amazing about crafting for free, but I hate asking all the time. My Goldsmithing was crazy fast especially letting the Moogles help. Once I’m Sworn, I hope I can still do their quests.
Unlocking Namazu is sort of... unlisted? You need to do two questlines in Yanxia: the one about the Namazu learning to become a merchant and the one about the wolfguy finding a job in the village. Once you've done those, you need to do the quest line involving both of them. After that, assuming you've reached the correct place in the story (I think you need to be in the Stormblood 4.x stuff), you'll find the Namazu beast tribe starting quest on the south side of the Azim Steppe.Awesome! Thank you. I only have really done the Moogle ones and unlocked a few other vendors. I’m 67 and a bit so I will look to unlock the others today. Thank you!
I am looking forward to help with 15-50.
Namazu Beast Tribe can be done as crafter or gathering, but until then... yeah, it's basically just grinding out leves, doing your collection log, doing turn-ins for Rowena and your Alliance, or doing Custom Deliveries. Once you hit 60, you can do Namazu ones and speed it along at a much faster pace.Are there beast tribe quests for gatherers or just crafters?
I'm tired of doing leves on my botanist and would love a change of pace.
You're still on NPC stuff until at least 25, but after that some beast I'm sure. Either way though, the Ixal is great if you aren't using your daily beast tribe allowances for something else. That's helped progress me more than Leves did (at least so far). Thanks for the link though, I've been following it.After that... use this guide.

Now something I remember hearing previously, but didn't see here is that it's beneficial to get at least a few different crafting classes to a minimal level because of cross-class skills. Any information about that? I couldn't find anything concrete.
You just said get all to 15, then drop stuff on there that's from level 50? And what's useful to get to 15? And why? That's what I mean.Get EVERYTHING to 15. Then you'll want...
- Steady Hand 2 from 37 CUL and probably Reclaim from 50 CUL, but Reclaim is more of a "Nice to have" thing.
- Byregot's Blessing from 50 CRP
- Ingenuity 2 from 50 BSM
- Innovation from 50 GSM
Mind you, I know the devs have been talking about redoing crafting soon and we have at least one live letter left before Shadowbringers launch so...
Getting to 15? You can honestly just spam stuff from the low levels (ingots/rings/cloth/etc). Every class has SOMETHING you can make that is basically ether just one ingredient or two cheap ones. For instance, I made lots of bronze/iron ingots and rings/plates for BSM and ARM, lots of salted fish for CUL, lots of cloth for WVR, etc. The investment for mats isn't that much (though you may want to buy shards from the MB) and you can speed this up quite a bit with Company-Issue Commercial Manuals 1-2 (+50% xp for 50-100k crafting xp) from your Grand Company Quartermaster and ether Helping Hand 1-3 from Free Company Actions (10-20% extra xp for crafting) or Squardron Engineering Manuals (20% extra xp for crafting for 120 minutes) from doing lvl 50 Squadron missions from your Grand Company. Just make sure you have plenty of crystal shards... you will go through quite a few. There really are no tricks required to get to lvl 15; you can literally do it the crafting guild hall if you want.You just said get all to 15, then drop stuff on there that's from level 50? And what's useful to get to 15? And why? That's what I mean.
You need an ilvl of at least 355 to do the last Stormblood content. If you've got gil, you could easily get 390 crafted pieces for 200-300k a piece and just use those. Alternative, wait till they do poetics gear.So I nearly have my 1st level 70.
Here's my question:
Do I continue to gear up to prep for the x-pac? Like, do hunts for centurio seals so I can get 300+ ilvl? Should i just wait for the xpac since higher level gear will be given through MSQ quests anyhow? Level up another class? Craft?

But yes, you need at least 355 gear.
The current Mendacity & Genesis gear will probably become available for poetics come expansion time (or at least that's how it's worked before).Oooh...I didn't know that. So I'd have to gear up anyhow. Hrm. I only got 700k gil atm. Centurio seals only get me up to i330. WELP. I guess I'll have some farming to do then.
As far as the poetics gear, I'm assuming that would come with the new xpac and I could blow allagan tombstones on it or something.
If you're going to play Gunbreaker or Dancer, I'd get a set of Shire gear for them. They start at 60. But you're going to get a ton of poetics anyway with the current Tomestone of Philosphy event going on, so I'd just spend them on something.I’m sitting on 2,000 Allagan Tomestones of Poetics that I have no idea what to do with.
The very first time I went into PotD I went in solo. All you have to do is have a blank save, and say "fixed party" (not matched, and obviously don't be grouped) and you can go in solo. I doubt you'll survive to 50 though with most classes if your weapons/armor are at level 1 as well.I was told I couldn’t solo until I got to level 50 with a group and then I could have a solo save.
