FFXIV - Repeatable Alchemist Leves Guide for Faster Leveling

The listed leves are all repeatable for high XP.

by

Leveling up that Alchemist can be tough! If you find yourself bored of the early levels of alchemy, consider trying your hand at one of the many repeatable leves available for your tradecraft. You get little goals to work toward and tons of XP!

The tradecraft leve system is something unique to Final Fantasy XIV. If you are new to the game and don't know what all the hubbub is about, feel free to take a look at my primary Repeatable Tradecraft Leves Guide to get started.

The item amounts listed here are the initial order number. You must make and turn in three times the listed amount, and ensure each given item is of high quality to make the most of these leves. This is not necessarily something you have to do, but is highly recommended.

The listed experience amounts are the bare minimum. Multiple high quality turn-ins will result in 6x the base XP.

(Leves saw some significant changes with the 2.1 patch, including passive nerfs to repeatable/triple tradecraft leves. Check out my 2.1 Tradecraft Leves Guide for information on the changes. You may do better to use my Complete Alchemist Leves Guide instead because of the increased viability of Constancy and Ingenuity leves.)

    Wanted to let you know that the Mor Dhona - Make Up Your Mind or Else Leve is not repeatable. I don't regret making up all the pots though, was easy and nice and stackable, and gave 138208 exp per turn in (of 3 HQ pots). If I was low on levs, I may not have hit 50 tho. ^^

    There's something that should be included with this list. Potions, Ethers, and Antidotes sell for dirt cheap in the marketboard. Often just 1 or 2 gil each. AND there are low level Alchemist leves that use them!

    For Instance, you can buy a ton of ethers for maybe 2-10 gil each in the Marketboard barters. "Morning Glass of Ether" is a Level 10 Leve for Alchemist. You pick the leve up in the Uldah Inn. And deliver 3 ethers to an NPC outside the Inn for 3872XP each time. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

    It's a fast way to level up the early levels of Alchemist. :)

    I just want to let you know that this quest only offers 1 turn :/


    Mor Dhona - Make Up Your Mind or Else
    Requires: 3 Potent Poisoning Potion
    Potent Poisoning Potion ingredients:
    5 Lightning Shard
    6 Water Shard
    3 Quicksilver
    1 Ochu Vine
    1 Pudding Flesh


    Now as a matter of fact, the other quest they give you at Mor Dhona for the Mega-Potions of Strength gives you the multiple turn in option.

    Levequest: Not Taking No for an Answer
    Location: Mor Dhona, Saint Coinach's Find
    Requirements: 5 Mega-Potions of Strenght
    6 Water Shards
    5 Lightning Shards
    1 Rock Salt
    1 Shark Oil
    1 Sagolii sage


    ~This will save those a lot of money trying to cap out Alchemy~

    Everything else in this guide is point on, so I appreciate your hard work and effort ^-^ v

    Potions of intelligence and potions of dexterity for the level 20 leves only require one rock salt, not three. Thanks for the guide!

    So, I went out of my way to disprove this. I spent an hour and a half tracking down a 40+ alchemist to get confirmation on this leve (again), and I did.

    Image proof of alchemist confirming the leve can be found here: http://i.imgur.com/EpLHTmu.png (This person is a stranger I found in a linkshell, not a friend)

    You need to go to Whitebrim, buddy, instead of the Observatorium.

    (Edited because I accidentally uploaded the whole screenshot instead of just that chat bit.)

    Hi-Potions take 4 of each shard, but only require 1 Distilled Water.
