GSM Leveling Guide 15-35
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.

[C] Brass Circlet (Sunstone) – (From Ul’dah to Camp Drybone)
[RC] Brass circlet (Danburite) – (From Camp Drybone to Ul’dah)

Aside from the recommended courier/reverse courier items, Brass Ring and Brass Ring of Crafting are the best single submit leves.
If Grinding: HQ Brass Ingot / Rings.
Goldsmith Level 20-25
Level 20 Goldsmith Class Quest Item: Staghorn Staff (Materia Enhanced)
Level 20 GSM Leves [L]ocation: Quarrymill | Ul’dah
Level 20 Goldsmith Leves Items Discussion:
[H] Coral Ring – Hmm.. might be expensive.
[C] Wind Brand – Courier. So and so…
[L] Brass Ring – Best triple this tier.
[L] Brass Ear Cuffs – Best single this tier.
The Quarrymill leves take the cake in this tier. Brass Ring is the best triple and Brass Ear Cuffs the best single.
If Grinding: HQ Silver Ingot / Rings.
Goldsmith Level 25-30
Level 25 Goldsmith Class Quest Item: (HQ) Silver Ingot
Level 25 GSM Leves [L]ocation: Quarrymill | Ul’dah
Level 25 Goldsmith Leves Items Discussion:
[H] Silver Ring – Best single this tier.
[C] Fluorite Ring – Courier, and cheap too.
The Courier leve is really good here: Fluorite Ring. In this tier, the Quarrymill leves are likely bad. Horns aren’t usually cheap. Stick to the leves in Ul’dah: Silver Magnifiers and Silver Ring.
If Grinding: Attempt for as many HQ Silver Ingot / Rings and HQ Siltstone Whetstone. You may also craft one of each dye to get the bonus EXP!
Goldsmith Level 30-35
Level 30 Goldsmith Class Quest Item: (HQ) Malachite Earrings
Level 30 GSM Leves [L]ocation: Costa Del Sol | Ul’dah
Level 30 Goldsmith Leves Items Discussion:
[C] Silver Circlet (Goshenite) – A decent Courier.
[L] Malachite Earring – Equally good triple.
[L] Silver Choker – Best single this tier.
Malachite Bracelets and Earrings require the same mats. Silver Choker has more stable pricing that Horn Ring. If people are selling aldgoat horn on the cheap – do Horn Ring instead. Overall, lots of choices in this tier so it shouldn’t be a problem.
If Grinding: Attempt for as many HQ Myhtril Ingot / Rings and HQ Siltstone Whetstone. You may also craft one of each dye to get the bonus EXP!
