FFXIV Weaver Leveling Guide L1 to 80 | 5.3 ShB Updated

Shadowbringers UPDATED! “That’s Bolls, I tell ye!” Weaver Leveling to 80 in no time! WVR Levequest Items comparisons and value moves per tier!

MIN & BTN Leveling Guides updated. Other notes...

Botanist Leveling to 90, as well as Miner Leveling to 90 are updated for the Endwalker tier. Older tiers needs some fixing, although I modernized what I could quickly – I placed the important notes on the top of the aforementioned guides reflecting the major things that you need to take note of.

I will post a personal update soon, for those that are curious…


ShB 5.3 UPDATED! Dwarf Beast Tribe and Ehll Tou

Recent Update Log

5.3 Updates

  • Dwarf Beast Tribe quests added in ShB tier as a notable EXP source.
  • Ehll Tou added as Custom Delivery client option.

Previous updates

  • Kai Shirr added as Custom Delivery client option in ShB tier.
  • L70 to L80 section essentially revamped: New Skills & Rotations! 5.2ish was a clusterF. Skills changed TWICE in a short span of time. All is well now!
  • L70+ Gear recommendation:  Yellow Scrip gear is now recommended, for a number of reasons (Mainly, barely need stats for 70 to 80 leveling)

If you’ve been here before and need quick navigation:
WVR Level [0-15] | [15-35] | [35-50]
[50-60] | [60-64] | [64-70] | [70-80]

So you decided you wanna be a Weaver ey? Well, don’t believe the rumors. It’s NOT EXPENSIVE AT ALL! With some changes that happened along the way, WVR got a lot easier. I’m sorry for the long first page you can just scroll to the Basics or Leveling begins!

Before you begin…

Where is the Weaver’s Guild? How to become a Weaver? You can become a weaver by visiting the Weaver’s Guild in Ul’dah. You just need to reach level 10 in your primary combat class, and you’re good to go!

Ok so we’re in the middle of updating ALL crafting guides – We recommend the use of a few guides during your leveling process, in varied current state of usefulness:

Weaver Levequests List: A table featuring all levequests for WVR 01 to 50. (100% updated)

Crafting General Leveling Tips: This guide was made back right after beta. It’s not updated, but it’s missing two key features: Ixal and Challenge Log. (Old but still useful) (Needs some Mahiko Updates!)

Crafting Gear Guide: is still useful, but written a long time ago. It’s messy but contains a great table as to when you can and should update core pieces. (Old guide, kinda messy(Needs some Mahiko Updates!)

Weaver Class Quest Item Reference:

WVR 01: Hempen Yarn
WVR 05: 3x Hempen Breeches
WVR 10: 12x Hempen Cloth
WVR 15: Cotton Scarf, Cotton Shepherds Slops
WVR 20: Cotton Acton (Materia-enhanced)
WVR 25: (HQ) Undyed Velveteen
WVR 30: (HQ) Velveteen Gaiters
WVR 35: (HQ) Linen Shirt
WVR 40: (HQ) Woolen Tights
WVR 45: (All HQ) Woolen Beret, Woolen Gown, Woolen Gaskins
WVR 50: (All HQ) Patrician’s Bottoms, Patrician’s Coatee, Patrician’s Wedge Cap

Just use the above as a quick reference if completing multiple Weaver class quests at once. The 50 to 60 ones are in that specific section of the guide.


How to use this guide!?

Each listed tier has some self-explanatory sections such as:

  • Next class quest Item required.
  • Relevant Weaver levequest locations.
  • WVR Levequests items discussion (tier specific).

We will be using a few amount of ‘codes’ here to make your life easier, as long as you understand them.

  • [H] : HOMETOWN, which in WVR’s case is Ul’dah.
  • [L] : LOCAL levemete. This changes every tier.
  • [C] : COURIER LEVE. From [H] to [L].
  • [RC] : REVERSE COURIER. From [L] to [H].
  • [R] : REPEATABLE , or a “Triple”.

Basic [H] and [L] leves are the BASELINE for value. [C] and [RC] give more than the basics, but require travel time. [R] gives the most of all, but is a massive time and material sink.

In this guide I will try to recommend the best levequest for each type.

Buy the following items:

RESULTS MAY VARY! (Rested EXP, HQing, etc…)

Ixal Beast Tribe Daily Quests: Bonus Crafting/DoH EXP !

Putting it here to remind or notify you that such a thing exists, but:

Starting Quest: A Bad Bladder
NPC & Location: Scarlet at New Gridania (9, 11)
Prerequisite MSQ: Pursuit of the Past

These dailies are best used to push past “bad tiers”, or simply on your highest level non 50 crafter. I suppose you can also use them on crafting classes which are lagging behind for one reason or the other.

If you’re super fresh and have all low level crafters, and happen to unlock it early – you CAN do them now.

Weaver 0 to 5: the Beginnings!

[H] 1x Hempen Chausses: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS
[H] 1x Hempen Underpants: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS
[C] 1x Hempen Undershirt: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS
[L] 1x Hempen Halfgloves: NPC BUYABLE MATERIALS

**If you choose to, you can buy COMPLETED cloth and yarn from other vendors. It greatly speeds up the process, but you get a little less EXP.

“What is the Courier, Reverse Courier Cycle?” A courier levequest starts from your Hometown (In WVRs case Ul’dah) and ends in the local levemete (In this tiers case Scorpions Crossing). The idea is to get, complete, get, complete in a circle to maximize the EXP of your travel time.

So WVR 01 tier – it’s getting the quest from Ul’dah to submit 1x Hempen Undershirt in Red Rooster Stead, then taking the reverse courier quest from Red Rooster Stead and then submitting 1x Hempen Coif in Ul’dah. This is by the way the fastest+least hassle way to get out of the early tiers.

“How do I get to Scorpion Crossing!?” It’s a non-aetheryte town outside U’dah. Just take the Aethernet to Steps of Nald gate and walk a bit outwards.

The other way to spend leves in these low tiers is to “spam the best single leve”. In this tiers case, is to buy materials from the WVR supplier and craft>submit Hempen Halfgloves in Ul’dah.

Weaver Level 05 to 10

All levequest items below have 100% NPC Buyable Materials.

[H] 1x Hempen Tabard: Unnotable.
[H] 1x Amateur’s Dalmatica: Unnotable
[C] 1x Hempen Kecks: Recommended due to high EXP.
[RC] 1x Hempen Acton: Recommended due to high EXP.
[L] 1x Hempen Shepherd’s Tunic: Best single.
[L] 1x Amateur’s Breeches: Unnotable

**Like I mentioned before, you can buy completed cloths and yarns at the expense of EXP. You can even quick synth ‘em.

Courier  <-> Reverse Courier cycle: Nothing much to say here. Materials buyable from WVR supplier (or completed yarns/cloths from other merchants). Doing this cycle yields the chunkiest EXP with the only downside of a little travel time.

Or the best single: While all the items are relatively easy to make and cheap, Hempen Shepherds Tunic might be the ‘easiest’ to make at this point. But don’t sweat the choice between singles in this tier.

Weaver Level 10 to 15

All levequest items below have 100% NPC Buyable Materials.

[H] 1x Cotton Scarf: Unnotable.
[H] 1x Straw Hat: Brainlessly cheap, easy and hassle-free!
[C] 1x Cotton Turban: Recommended due to high EXP.
[RC] 1x Stablehand’s Hat: Recommended due to high EXP.
[L] 1x Hempen Bracers: Unnotable.
[L] 1x Cotton Halfgloves: Unnotable.

Cotton Yarn & Cloth can be bought in: Housing Vendors, Sylph Vendor mainly. (Other vendors sell one or the other only)

Courier  <-> Reverse Courier cycle: With a total cost of 4 Undyed Cotton Cloth and 3 Straw for each cycle, this is dirt cheap. Suck up the travel time and do it.

Or the best single: Damn, Straw Hat needs 3 pieces of straw and a shard. Cheap, easy recipe level, no hassles… this is the go-to single this tier.

Summary of this chunk

Courier / Reverse Courier is best in early tiers

L1: Hempen Undershirt [Ul’dah] / Hempen Coif [Scorpions Crossing] L5: Hempen Kecks [Ul’dah] / Hempen Acton [Scorpions Crossing] L10:  Cotton Turban [Ul’dah] / Stablehand’s Hat [Horizon]

Of course, we also can recommend the best singles:

WVR 1 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Hempen Chausses
WVR 5 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Amateur’s Dalmatica
WVR 10 Leve Recommendation: [H][1] – Cotton Scarf

FFXIV Weaver Levequests (Complete List)

All Weaving Levequests Information. WVR Levequest locations, leve items needed – and more!

Hey guys! Here is a listing of ALL WEAVING LEVEQUESTS. If you’re reading this – you’re going to want to open our Weaver Leveling Guide!

Weaver Leves level 20 and above marked with T means they are triple turn ins, while S is a single turn in. Submitting High-quality Alchemist crafted items give DOUBLE EXP REWARDS

Weaver is a bit different. It’s expensive to level WVR on REPEATABLE LEVEs unless you’re very rich. You’re better off finding a cost-effective single submission level and spamming that.
