GSM Leveling Guide 35-50
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.
Goldsmith Level 35-40
Level 35 Goldsmith Class Quest Item: (HQ) Fire Brand
Level 35 GSM Leves [L]ocation: Coerthas (Observatorium) | Ul’dah
Level 35 Goldsmith Leves Items Discussion:
[H] Mythril Ring – good.
[C] Aquamarine Bracelet – good courier!
[L] Mythril Earrings – Best triple this tier.
[L] Wolf Necklace – depends on price or Wolf Fang.
[L] Peridot Choker – good.
Mythril Ring & Peridot Choker are your go-to single leve here, as Wolf Necklace highly depends on price. Again, a pretty friendly tier with alot of choices. Even Fire Brand, which normally sucks, is still viable depending on market conditions. Writing this, I realize GSM is quite friendly to level…
If Grinding: Attempt for as many HQ Mythril Ingot / Rings. It’s not really a grindy tier, You can grind on gems but you’re better off just rushing off to the next tier.
Goldsmith Level 40-45
Level 40 Goldsmith Class Quest Item: (HQ) Horn Staff
Level 40 GSM Leves [L]ocation: Coerthas (Whitebrim) | Ul’dah
Level 40 Goldsmith Leves Items Discussion:
[H] Mythril Ear Cuffs – Equally best choice as Electrum Gorget.
[L] Peridot Earrings – Best triple this tier.
[L] Electrum Gorget – Equally best choice as Mythril Ear Cuffs.
Hmm, it’s a toss-up this tier. Electrum Gorget needs Peiste Leather, Mythril Earcuffs need Basiliks Whetstone. Find out what’s cheaper in your server! For triples, Peridot Earrings blow Red Coral Armillae out of the water.
If Grinding: Attempt for as many HQ Electrum Ingot / Rings and HQ Basilisk Whetstone.
Goldsmith Level 45-50
Level 45 Goldsmith Class Quest Item: (All HQ) Electrum Circlet (Zircon, Amber, Spinel)
Level 45 GSM Leves [L]ocation: Mor Dhona | Ul’dah
Level 45 Goldsmith Leves Items Discussion:
[C] Tourmaline Choker – Decent Courier.
[L] Amber Choker – Best Triple this tier.
[L] Amber Ring – Dirt CHEAP.
[L] Electrum Needle – Dirt CHEAP.
Well for singles, Amber Ring and Electrum Needle are equally good. Tourmaline Choker is an on-par courier leve, and Amber Chokers are far cheaper than Red Coral Necklace. This leve tier is clear cut and easy. Hurry up and get to 50!
If Grinding: Electrum Ingots/Rings, Basilisk Whetstones OR spiritbonding items like Red Coral Earring, Electrum Ring of Crafting, Electrum Wristlets of Crafting, Electrum Choker, Electrum Earrings.
Goldsmith – 50 and beyond
