WVR 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.
Useful links to have open: WVR Leves List
Weaver Level 15 to 20
L15 WVR Class Quest Item: Cotton Scarf, Cotton Shepherds Slops
L15 WVR Leves [L]ocation: Camp Drybone | Ul’dah
L15 WVR Leves Items Discussion:
All levequest items below have 100% NPC Buyable Materials.
[H] 1x Cotton Shepherd’s Tunic: Easiest Single
[H] 1x Initiate’s Slops: Hmm save making these for later…
[C] 1x Cotton Kurta: Recommended due to high EXP.
[RC] 1x Initiate’s Doublet Vest: Recommended due to high EXP.
[L] 1x Padded Hempen Trousers: Unnotable.
[L] 1x Cotton Work Gloves: Recommended, but it’s a bit difficult.
Courier <-> Reverse Courier cycle: Abuse it while you can! This is the last tier of Reverse Courier! Abuse the whole NPC buyable thing before it goes away, because that day is comin’ soon! At recipe level 18 and 20 respectively, they can be tough.
Or the best single: Toss-up between Cotton Shepherd’s Tunic and Cotton Work Gloves. The latter giving slightly more EXP but more difficult to make.
If Grinding: Make some Initiate’s Slops. You’ll be needing quite a bit of them later on…
Weaver Level 20 to 25
L20 WVR Class Quest Item: Cotton Acton (Materia-enhanced)
L20 WVR Leves [L]ocation: Quarrymill | Ul’dah
L20 WVR Leves Items Discussion:
All levequest items below have 100% NPC Buyable Materials.
[H][R] 3(9)x Cotton Breeches of Crafting: tiny bit worse than the other.
[H] 1x Cotton Sash: Equal.
[C] 1x Cotton Doublet Vest of Gathering: Courier exp is always good.
[L][R] 3(9)x Cotton Coif of Gathering: Highly recommended.
[L] 1x Cotton Dress Gloves: Equal.
[L] 1x Cotton Doublet Vest of Crafting: Avoid.
Level 20 DoH signals the end of [RC], and introduces [R], or “triples”. Oddly, WVR gets a free pass as WVR 20 still has NPC buyable stuff!
Singles: STAY AWAY FROM SINGLES THIS TIER unless you’re ultra lazy. For those who are, all are pretty much equal – just avoid the Vest. Gloves or Sash are the recommended single leves.
Courier: If you’re lazy to do triples, do this. Again, cost is a non-issue here.
Triples: Both are good and cheap, it’s just the Cotton Coif of Gathering requires one less cloth.
I wouldn’t bother with single leves this tier, again, due to NPC buyable mats. Courier or Triple it, you lazy butt. I personally did triples.
Exiting the L20 tier is the equivalent to the beginning of the wilds in terms of DoH leveling. Welcome to the “real part”.
Weaver Level 25 to 30
L25 WVR Class Quest Item: (HQ) Undyed Velveteen
L25 WVR Leves [L]ocation: Quarrymill | Ul’dah
L25 WVR Leves Items Discussion:
Velveteen Sarouel: Hassle, SAME RECIPE as other triple.
Velveteen Shirt: Hassle
[C] 1x Velveteen Wedge Cap of Gathering: Courier EXP is tempting isn’t it?[L][R] 3(9)
Velveteen Sarouel of Gathering: Hassle.
[L] 1x Initiate’s Slops: Highly Recommended, GODLEVE.
Velveteen Wedge Cap of Gathering: Hassle
Velveteen can be bought from Sylph Vendor, and diremite web isn’t so bad usually (A big relief from the old days). You can also start this tier by making a bunch of Dew Thread, and refining some into HQ Velveteen, but read below first. (You CANNOT buy Dew Thread)
While these newfound vendor mats make the blow a little less, WHY BOTHER?
Singles: Initiate’s Slops is THE GODLIKE levequest of choice here, as it’s piss easy to make and has hassle-free NPC materials. Treat the other singles as non-existent.
Courier: Well, the alure of Courier EXP is a good one. If you’re gonna bother with Velveteen in this tier, it may as well be courier, right? So Velveteen Wedge Cap of Gathering isn’t a bad choice I guess.
Triples: Damn, they’re literally EQUAL. Equally bad that is. I would skip triples this tier as both Aldgoat Leather and Dew thread are a bit of a hassle. But, if you decide to do either, you can freely choose between both.
While this tier initially looks really bad – Initiate’s Slops saves the DAY! So technically even WVR 25 has an NPC Buyable Leve.
Weaver Level 30 to 35
L30 WVR Class Quest Item: (HQ) Velveteen Gaiters
L30 WVR Leves [L]ocation: Costa Del Sol | Ul’dah
L30 WVR Leves Items Discussion:
*with the inclusion of Sylph Vendors in 2.1 – Undyed Velveteen is now buyable in NPC. Dew Thread, however, is not!
[H][R] 3(9)x Velveteen Work Gloves: Equal to other triple.
[H] 1x Velveteen Robe: Avoid.
[C] 1x Linen Chausses: WELL WORTH THE TROUBLE.
[L][R] 3(9)x Velveteen Dress Shoes: Equal to other triple.
[L] 1x Velveteen Gaskins: A legit choice for Singles.
[L] 1x Linen Halfgloves: A legit choice for Singles.
Again, look at the above tier for notes on Velveteen. You can also begin grinding on Linen Yarn and Undyed Linen Cloth. (Flax has a somewhat volatile price)
Completed Linen Yarns and Linen Cloths are available from Sylph Vendor too. So again, WVR gets a free pass IF YOUVE UNLOCKED SYLPH VENDOR.
**Spamming Initiate’s slops from previous tier is an old but good trick if you’re dead broke.
This tier is quite unstable, since I cannot know if you’ve unlocked Sylph Vendor or not. If you have? Linen Chausses [C] and Linen Halfgloves [L] become the brainless, cheap, easy choice. Although I guess the MB prices on these cloths can’t be too high cause they’re vendor items, right? Well you better hope so.
Courier: All in all a good choice. Just stick with this if you don’t want to complicate your life or think too much.
Triples: Both triples only have one unique ingredient from each other namely Rubber and Cotton Boll. Since both are NPC buyable you only have to worry about Velveteen and Dew Thread.
Singles: Linen Halfgloves have the potential to be REALLY CHEAP. If you’d rather go for a Velveteen Item, avoid the damn robe and choose Velveteen Gaskins.
Sadly, this tier is a little hard to recommend for. I hope you found that right mix of value just for you!
