FFXIV - Complete Carpenter Leves Guide

Leves as far as the eye can see for Carpenters!

Finding yourself slowing down a bit while leveling your Carpenter class in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn? Fear not! For here are a number of leves available to Carpenters to get that extra boost of experience you so desperately need.

There are three types of tradecraft leves available. They are highlighted below so you can use this list to its utmost.

(This article has been updated with the 2.1 EXP amounts! Introduction still needs to be updated.)

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. Some zones have multiple levemetes. If the one listed isn't at the levemete you are currently at, check with the other one.
  4. '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).

(We now have a number of resources available for Carpenters and other DoHs on my FFXIV guide list. )

Associate Editor

Ashley spends all her time playing games, cooking, and studying languages. It's a miracle she's not burned out on the whole thing after being a game addict since '89 (I'm old, deal with it). Classic annoying Sega kid, still hasn't let go of Sonic and prefers arcade-style games. Final Fantasy and SaGa rock whatever it is you like, chump.

  • Slug_7564
    Level 30 Leve "Knock on Wood" should be Costa Del Sol.
    edit: Well, actually I can't find it anywhere. Perhaps it has been removed?
  • Razu Erisu_7826
    First of all thanks for all the guides, they're very helpful! Secondly, Behind the Mask levequest lists wrong ingredients...

    Thanks again!
  • Pingolete
    More likely is a typo but as Div_4120 pointed before, Flintstone Fight gives 117600 xp for the triple HQ turn in instead of the 177600 that is posted on the guide.
  • Ashley Shankle
    Associate Editor
    Oh, huh. I thought I'd fixed that weeks ago. Seems the save I did all that time ago didn't go through. Got it (and hopefully any other issues, if they exist).
  • Mustang_7683
    For the 20 leve "Behind the Mask": The mats are wrong.
  • Div_4130
    Flintstone Fight: The numbers for the triple HQ turn in are off. The total is inflated. Thanks for everything!
  • Firion_9433
    For the 40 leve "The Arsenal of Theocracy" I cant find it. Its not listed in gridania or whitebrim, any idea whats up?
