Just Ashley's Final Fantasy XIV Guides - Current and Upcoming Listed

No information here! But plenty found in the links.

by

Hello! Considering the overwhelming (and unexpected) popularity of some of my Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn guides and lists, I've decided to take the time to list out all of the guides I've posted here on GameSkinny to make jumping between them a little easier.

Please note as you look through these guides that I am not level 50 on every class, and a good deal of information has either come from friends, people who were nice enough to help, and cross-referencing several materials found online. The primary goal with all of these is to provide quick and easy go-to materials for my fellow Final Fantasy XIV players.

The first list of guides are those that are already complete and can be found on the site. If you see any errors (you just might, I'm only human!), please do not hesitate to pop a comment here and let me know. I am 100% dedicated to fixing data errors and typos in these texts.

The second list are those that are currently on the pipeline, while the third comprises of those I am not sure whether to go through with or not. If you see a topic in the third list you personally would like to see, please let me know.

Leve listings are to be receiving new, more convenient layouts this week. The food listings are getting updated and reworked soon.

    I would like to see the Botanist Guide that you would put together. I think you are doing a very good job and I commend you for your efforts with putting these guides up. <standing applause> =)

    I have it sitting in the wings, but I'm holding into it for now because they're seeing some changes after 2.1. X3 I'll get it up as soon as I fix all the tradecraft information on Tuesday and Wednesday.

    I am brand new to this game and am so happy I found this! Could you possible explain a bit further on what the turnins mean for the leve quests?
    Example: (copied form one of your powerleveel guides)
    Level 10 (11,800 XP): 6 (HQ: 2)
    Level 11 (15,600 XP): 7 (HQ: 3)
    Level 12 (19,600 XP): 9 (HQ: 3)
    Level 13 (23,700 XP): 11 (HQ: 4)
    Level 14 (26,400 XP): 12 (HQ: 4)
    All at once (97100 XP needed): 44 (15)
    Straight from 10-20 (300200 XP): 135 (HQ: 45)
    Are you saying that I will need a total of 44 reg or 15 HQ items to get from lvl 10 to lvl 20? The amount needed to farm/gather before turnin is what is throwing me off a little! Any Clarification would be amazing. Thank you again for this great guide!

    That is indeed what I mean. :) You brought up something I hadn't noticed before, though! I accidentally didn't put 10-11, 11-12, 12-13 and so on on many of the level 10 leve listings in the powerleveling guides. It's a little more obvious past those. :) I'll get to fixing that up in just a bit!

    But to fully clarify, the first number is the amount needed to turn in for standard-quality, and the one in parenthesis is that for high-quality turn-ins. If you haven't read my repeatable levequest guide yet, I highly recommend it because it explains why repeatables are preferable, and why the XP is so much higher. But basically, you get triple experience for turning in high-quality items for these leves instead of standard quality.

    Thanks a bunch, I'm just happy to help. :) I do plan on doing mining and botany leves after my current project. So, I'd say look for it sometime next week or over this weekend?

    I am overall aiming to catalog as much information as possible, as compactly as possible.

    That's pretty obvious innit, but some people like to have the information right there and compare XP rewards. If people want it, I'll do it. I've had a few requests by now for it.

    That said, I have two super sekrit things in the works coming this weekend/next week that hold some significant value.

    Nah, I've got too much on my plate to bother. I'm getting the groundwork ready for a total overhaul pre-2.1 and have actual guide-guides on the pipeline.

    I'm essentially out of the news game, aside from a few exceptions.

    I believe your link to the weaver class quests is incorrect. It's taking me to the leve guide.

    That one will be coming up either tomorrow or the day after. It got pushed back a little bit to make way for the class quest lists. ;D Glad I could help!

    I made a similar list because I agree that having an all encompassing list makes things easier. I also linked to your list in the opening since I don't really go heavy into gathering and crafting as far as guides even though I'm a 50 Botanist Carpenter and Weaver.

    Awesome collection of guides! Glad to hear they can easily be found on one page. I think a guide on finding all tradecraft ingredients/components and another that has the full recipe lists for every tradecraft would be VERY useful for many people out there!

    I'm actually working on this right now, it's just a hefty task that requires a lot of sorting and whatnot. My Culinarian ingredients and where to get them will be coming out today, as the first of them.
