403 Issues SHOULD BE SOLVED: After a very convoluted hunt to discover why and how this was happening - I took a rather extreme approach to squash the problem. There should be no more of this issue going forward.

gET yER Leatherworker LEVELING to 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

Levequest Items Discussion?
Every tier has 3 kinds of Leves:
- 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: Single and 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. 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  and  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!
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] – Leather Choker [The Bannock]
LTW 5 Leve Recommendation: [H] – Leather Himantes [Gridania]
LTW 10 Leve Recommendation: [H] – Hard Leather Caligae [The Bannock]
