FFXIV - Complete Goldsmith Leves Guide

All Goldsmith leves for leveling the craft!

Goldsmithing is one of the most popular tradecrafts in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn because of the large customer base, interesting craftable items, and relying primarily on mining instead of botany and monster drops.

There are three types of tradecraft leves available. They are highlighted below so you can use this list to its utmost, but if you want more information on the types and how they vary as well as leve mete locations, I've worked up a Tradecraft Leves Guide with Levemete Locations.

This guide has had all leve information updated for 2.1! Keep an eye on my FFXIV guide list for updates. Sorry for any inconvenience!

The list here is fairly straightforward, but there are some things that need to be explained:

  1. The base experience gain is listed. You will receive double the base experience for HQ turn-ins. Normal quality turn-in rewards are marked as NQ and high quality turn-in rewards are marked with HQ.
  2. Triple turn-in/charity leves have the triple turn-in rewards in parenthesis with an asterisk next to them.
  3. Repeatables are listed here and can be turned in three times on a single leve. Turning in high quality items is absolutely recommended. You can check out my Repeatable Tradecraft Leves Guide for more information on this process.
  4. Some zones have multiple levemetes. If the one listed isn't at the levemete you are currently at, check with the other one.
  5. 'Constancy', 'Charity', and 'Ingenuity' mark the type of leves these are.
    1. 'Constancy' means both the levemete and turn-in NPC are in the same area. These are marked with (C).
    2. 'Charity' means the leve can be turned in three times (also known as a repeatable leve). These are marked with (T).
    3. 'Ingenuity' means the levemete and the turn-in NPC are in separate areas. These are marked with (I).
