FFXIV Leatherworker Leveling Guide L1 to 80 | 5.3 ShB Updated

Shadowbringers UPDATED! “Deez Skins” Power level your LTW to 80 in no time! LTW Levequest Items comparisons!

MIN & BTN Leveling Guides updated. Other notes...

Botanist Leveling to 90, as well as Miner Leveling to 90 are updated for the Endwalker tier. Older tiers needs some fixing, although I modernized what I could quickly – I placed the important notes on the top of the aforementioned guides reflecting the major things that you need to take note of.

I will post a personal update soon, for those that are curious…

Leatherworker LEVELING to 80!

ShB 5.3 UPDATED! Dwarf Beast Tribe and Ehll Tou

Recent Update Log

5.3 Updates

  • Dwarf Beast Tribe quests added in ShB tier as a notable EXP source.
  • Ehll Tou added as Custom Delivery client option.

Previous updates

  • Kai Shirr added as Custom Delivery client option in ShB tier.
  • L70 to L80 section essentially revamped: New Skills & Rotations! 5.2ish was a clusterF. Skills changed TWICE in a short span of time. All is well now!
  • L70+ Gear recommendation:  Yellow Scrip gear is now recommended, for a number of reasons (Mainly, barely need stats for 70 to 80 leveling)

If you’ve been here before and need quick navigation:
LTW Level: [0-15] | [15-35] | [35-50]
[50-60] | [60-64] | [64-70] | [70-80]

So you decided to level up a Leatherworker ey!? Guildmaster Geva’s a tough one! Use our Leatherworking 01-50 leveling guide to help speed up the process!

Before you begin…

Where is the Leatherworker Guild? How to become a Leatherworker? You can become a Leatherworker by visiting the Leatherworkers’ Guild in Gridania. If you have at least L10 in any combat class – you’re on your way to fashion fandom!

Updating your Cooking Gear is quite important if you’re going to be crafting your own leve items. We have a Crafting Gear Guide to help you out on that.

Leatherworker Class Quest Item Reference:

LTW 01: Leather
LTW 05: 3x Leather Choker
LTW 10: 12x Hard Leather
LTW 15: Hard Leather Caligae & Hard Leather Choker
LTW 20: Goatskin Leggings (Materia-Enhanced)
LTW 25: (HQ) Toad Leather
LTW 30: (HQ) Toadskin Jacket
LTW 35: (HQ) Boarskin Ringbands
LTW 40: (HQ) Boarskin Smithy Gloves
LTW 45: (All HQ) Fingerless Raptorskin Gloves, Raptorskin Targe, Raptorskin Choker

Just use the above as a quick reference if completing multiple Leatherworker class quests at once.


Levequest Items Discussion?

Every tier has 3 kinds of Leves:

  • [1]Single Submit Leves: Levemete & submission are just a short walk from each other.
  • [C]ourier Leves: Levemete is from the [H]ometown, to be submitted to the [L]ocal Levemete.
  • [R]epeatable Leves.

Notes: [1]Single and [3]Repeatable Leves (1 each) are from the [H]ometown, and [L]ocal levemete. [C]ourier leves will always give the Highest EXP per craft, but require alot of time, and travel costs. [3]epeatable leves will always give the Highest EXP per Leve. If you value your leves alot or don’t have many left, these are good. But, they are thrice as expensive. We will recommend the best [1] and [3] levequest(s) for every tier. Note that this depends on server prices and might not apply to you – so always check!  Also, a Precursor item means it requires a fully crafted item AS A MATERIAL – which is almost always BAD!

Ixal Beast Tribe Daily Quests: Bonus Crafting/DoH EXP !

Putting it here to remind or notify you that such a thing exists, but:

I SUGGEST USING THESE ON CRAFTERS L15+ (use on low level if forced)
Since the early levels are quite easy. (But you can unlock it asap)

Starting Quest: A Bad Bladder
NPC & Location: Scarlet at New Gridania (9, 11)
Prerequisite MSQ: Pursuit of the Past

These dailies are best used to push past “bad tiers”, or simply on your highest level non 50 crafter. I suppose you can also use them on crafting classes which are lagging behind for one reason or the other.

If you’re super fresh and have all low level crafters, and happen to unlock it early – you CAN do them now. While I don’t recommend it, I suppose it’s better than them just disappearing!

Leatherworker Level 1-15: The early levels

We DO NOT advise using “Regular” Leves for these low levels. Using Courier / Reverse Courier is the most efficient use of leves in these tiers:

Level 1: Leather Duckbills / 3x Leather [The Bannock] Level 5: Leather Mitts / Fingerless Leather Gloves [The Bannock] Level 10: Hard Leather Caligae / Hard Leather Hunting Belt [Bentbranch Meadows]

All of the above courier quests start from Gridania!

If you want to use spammy single submits…

LTW 1 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Leather Choker [The Bannock]
LTW 5 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Leather Himantes [Gridania]
LTW 10 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Hard Leather Caligae [The Bannock]
