Shadowbringers carpenter leveling to 80!
If you’ve been here before and need quick navigation:
CRP Level: [0-15] | [15-35] | [35-50] | [50-60] | [60-64] | [64-70] | [70-80]
Decided on Leveling CRP? Let the Blessing of Byregot the builder manifest within you (with good material condition or better)! Hope our Carpenter Leveling Guide helps you out!
Before you begin…
Where is the Carpenter Guild? How to become a Carpenter? You can become a Carpenter by visiting the Carpenters’ Guild in Gridania. If you have at least L10 in any combat class – it’s sawing and nailing time!
Updating your Carpentry 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.
Carpenter Class Quest Item Reference:
CRP 01: Maple Lumber
CRP 05: 3x Square Maple Shield
CRP 10: 12x Ash Lumber
CRP 15: Feather Harpoon, Ash Shortbow
CRP 20: Iron Lance (Materia Enhanced)
CRP 25: (HQ) Walnut Lumber
CRP 30: (HQ) Walnut Cane
CRP 35: (HQ) Oak Longbow
CRP 40: (HQ) Oak Composite Bow
CRP 45: (All HQ) Cobalt Halberd, Jade Crook, Yew Longbow
CRP 50: (HQ) Rosewood Lumber (HQ) Crab Bow (Melded with: Savage Aim Materia III)
Just use the above as a quick reference if completing multiple Carpenter class quests at once.
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 (Unlikely). We will comment on every tiers [C] levequest but will likely never recommend it. Use [C] levequests at your own discretion! Also, a Precursor item means it requires a fully crafted item AS A MATERIAL.

Carpenter Level 1-15: The early levels
Using Courier / Reverse Courier is the most efficient use of leves in these tiers:
Level 1: Maple Clogs / 3x Maple Lumber [The Bannock] Level 5: Maple Crook / Maple Cane [The Bannock] Level 10: 3x Ash Lumber / Square Ash Shield [Bentbranch Meadows]
We DO NOT advise using “REGULAR” leves for these low levels. If you really feel like using these leves for these tiers:
CRP 1 Leve Recommendation: [H] – Maple Patterns
CRP 5 Leve Recommendation: [H] – Ash Macuahuitl
CRP 10 Leve Recommendation: [H] – Ash Radical
Company-issue Engineering Scroll is great for when you wanna sit down and craft. The GC Scrolls These can be bought from your GC’s supplier NPC.

Hey, thanks so much for the guides. Even the older, slightly outdated portions on the crafting guides have helped me speed level tremendously after I followed the MIN and BTN ones.
On this one, I noticed that you were stating a minor update to your 78 – 80 macro but I don’t see the adjustment noted. Was there an error in creating the box?
i’ll check it out but alas, the new update invalidates these… :(
Hey, thanks for the great guide! Quick thing I noticed while leveling Carpenter, the Link to 64-70 is wrong and links to page 7 (70-80) instead of page 6 (64-70). Both at the top and bottom navigation. Might want to look into that :)
Continue to do the SINGLE Lv. 30 Walnut Macuahuitl leve even after Lv. 35 instead of the TRIPLE leve.
It makes no sense to submit 3x for 20,000 exp instead of 49k for each one, and double that for HQ.
Yeah you’ll have to TP back and forth but that only takes a minute each time.
Went from 30-40 in about a half hour this way.
I just want to point out that from 50-60 some of the best exp you can get is from the moogle daily quests. It cost zero mats as they are provided with the quests and the quests are extremely quick and super easy to complete.
First off love ffxivguild guides , been using for years :) thank you
…i just grind all crafts 1-50 (again lol) and i noticed that all the leves in them set lvls only
offer 3 types now not 5 , i did all 3 types to see if i would get a new leve and nope same 3
may be something to look into ,i did buy some stuff on MB (HQ) just to see i could not get the leve for that item to come about
hmmmm… There should be 3 from the local levemete (area depends on level and class), and another 3 from the hometown (Limsa, Grid or Uldah – depending on class). lemme know if this still confuses you
Dragonstone Grinding Wheel should be Dragonscale Grinding Wheel.
most of this stuff atleast since 4.0 u can buy from vendors and hand in for still very good xp if your struggling to gather or cant hq anyways or just dont have the time :)
For 30-35, Costa del Sol is in La Noscea, not Gridania.
If you paid attention to the guide, you’d notice that the way the list works is that it shows you where to deliver, and where to pick the leve up. It’s listed as Costa del Sol | Gridania because the leve is picked up in Gridania and delivered in Costa del Sol. It would have been pointed out and corrected already if it was a mistake considering how long that’s been relevant, the old content guides weren’t written in 2017.
For the quest turn-ins, you should indicate that you need 3 lengths of birch lumber, otherwise great guide.
I just noticed for the level 50 levequests it says the cedar lumber one takes 5, but it actually takes 3.
when patches get released, sometimes the mats required comes down too
These guides are awesome! Thanks for all the hard work.
You’re very welcome.
The shopping list for 1-15 still isn’t active yet…
after finishing with ARM 50 to 60 (tonight) my next goal is to update all 01-50 DOH and DOL guides.
The shopping list is something I’m really iffy about. I’ll think and look into it as to how it can be made better or if there’s something else I can do about it.
There are many things to consider, but mainly formatting. I’ll try my best.
Rosewood Lumber should be the “grinding” for LVL40+.
25-30 silver spear is now silver battle fork.
wow i never caught wind of this rename! fixing
um for the walnut Macuahuitl, if you hand in the triple exchange leve you only get under 20k exp, where if u hand them in one at a time in costa del sol u get 49k exp for each one you hand in…….
Except that if you’re turning in HQ items, which should be priority when doing leves the Courier caps at 98k(49k x 2 for HQ) per leve while the triple maxes at 117.6k per leve(19.6k x 2 for HQ + option to turn in twice more for a total of ((19.6k x 2) x 3)).
Triple is the better option between the two if you’re mainly concerned about exp per leve. Less travel time as well.
Actually no, the triple really isn’t. In the time it takes to craft NINE items to gain a measly 20k, barely 20% bonus of the ONE item) You could turn in ALL 9 singles. Just set one as favored, one as free. Cost of crystals, effort of mats, everything.. not worth it. I’m low on Leves and I STILL won’t touch triples. I prefer making a quick HQ macro and doing all 9 turn ins within 5min.
Exp per leve, maybe. But 20% more exp for up to 9x the cost. (3×3 items Vs 1 Item)
This guide (and most on this site) are horribly outdated since the nerfing of triple turn-ins and the buffing of single/couriers.
I have to agree with this. The level 30 leve for the Walnut Macuahuitl is the way to go. 98000 xp for 1 HQ item beats 117600 for 9 of the same HQ item. It may cost you leves, but it’s well worth for time and money you’ll save from having to craft less.
Also, to make the trip easier, go ahead and make Costa del Sol and New Gridania favored destinations. It’ll cut down on the teleporting costs, which comes out to over 1000 gil per round trip without favored destination.
Depends if you are trying to power level several crafts in a short amount of time, without factoring in grinding which takes forever. You will burn through roughly 60 Leves using HQ items. Triples saves you several days of waiting for allowances.
Having tried this last night, the level 30 single turn in will carry you all the way to 50. It is nuts!
The triple, on the other hand, requires vastly more effort and resources for marginal benefit.
That’s certainly one way, albeit less leve efficient. lol.
it says “updating your cooking gear” i think it should say carpenter there.
you forgot about the list
