FFXIV - Weaver Powerleveling Leves Guide

Pointing you in the right direction to leveling Weaver quickly!

So you want to powerlevel your Weaver, huh? Leves are the fastest way to level a tradecraft in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, but not all are created equal. Some fit some budgets or cross-class set ups better, and some are simply more efficient.

This guide has been updated!  Please check my FFXIV guide list for updates. Sorry for the inconvenience!

The list below lays out Weaver leves from level 10 to level 45, with the amount of XP required to gain individual levels immediately above the minimum acquisition level. The amount of times a leve must be completed to gain 5 and 10 levels is also laid out, and will be the most useful information to those looking to level as quickly as possible.

Know your capabilities financially and skill-wise before deciding to take on any repeatable leves, because of the buff to XP rewards on other types with 2.1.

Some points before moving forward:

  • Each listing assumes you have reached the required level with no experience past 0. Keep this is mind moving forward, because you will rarely ever be at 0 XP right when you reach a level.
  • Repeatable/Charity/triple turn-in leves are noted with asterisks next to their experience numbers. These listings assume you intend to make full use of these leves and turn in the requirements all three times, and hence their listed XP numbers are three times the base (plus bonuses on HQ turn-ins).
  • To be 100% honest, I recommend avoiding leves until level 20!
  • If you are looking for mass-leveling I highly recommend repeatables/triples. If for shorter bursts, Ingenuity may be better suited to your budget (though they require travel).

If you would like something a little more compact, check out my Complete Weaver Leves Guide

Most efficient leve-wise per tier:

While this does show which leves will give you the biggest XP for your allowance punch, the fact of the matter is triple turn-in leves require a considerably higher amount of effort to complete over their counterparts. The majority of leves mentioned in this list here are triple turn-ins. If you're low on leves, they're great. If not, there are now plenty of reasonable XP reward-giving leves at all level ranges.

  • Level 10: Workplace Safety; Keep It Under Wraps; Dirt Cheap; Welcome to the Cotton Club
  • Level 15: Better Shroud tha Sorry; A Drag of a Doublet
  • Level 20: Doublet Jeopardy; Whatchoo Talking About
  • Level 25: Bet You Anything; He's Got Legs; I'll Be Your Wailer Today
  • Level 30: Walk Softly and Carry a Big Halberd; Our Man in Ul'dah
  • Level 35: A Leg Up on the Cold; Crunching the Numbers
  • Level 40: A Matter of Import; Party Animals
  • Level 45: Bundle Up, It's Odd Out There; Seeing It Through to the End

Remember: Crafting XP is not taken into consideration in these numbers!

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.

    I turned in Hitting below the belt and only got a little over 10k xp per 3 HQ turned in.

    Guide needs to sadly be updated, because the 40 - 50 Woolen hats thing, has been reduced by 1/3 EXP to about 32k instead of 96k.
  • Xanthromir_1127
    I am just curious, the all at once turn in totals do not match what is totaled for each level gain. i.e. The last leve listed is: And a Haircut wouldn't Hurt. Now if I take the completions for leveling from 45 - 50 it will take 37 NQ Turn-in's and 20 HQ Turn-in's to level through. Now the all at once says it takes 35 NQ and 18 HQ. So if I am understanding correctly, if I craft 20 HQ Felt Robes, I will have wasted materials and time considering the all at once says I only need 18 Robes for the 5 levels. I'm just confused. Also it could be because each level labeled alone is starting at zero xp gained.

    I love your guides and continue to look them over and use them. They have made my life a little easier in the game.
  • Naomi_3412
    Thanks for this, it really helped me!

    Slight calculations errors seem to have occurred switching to the 2.1 numbers. Whatchoo Talking About (Quarrymill) - 13718 XP (HQ: 41154 XP) Has some for example. First 13718*2 isn't 41154, though your complete quest guide does have the correct total of 27436. Under that same one, where it tells you how many you need to get each level and such, I'm not sure those numbers have been recalculated to reflect the change in exp. The number of HQs needed to go from 23-24 should be 3. There may be other spots with errors as well, That area is the one I noticed the most.

    Long arrogant post by that guy to make sure you picked up on the "flaw" that wasn't one in the end. Ask first people so you don't come off sounding like that ^

    Thank you again for all the 2.1 updates. Appreciate all the hard work.

    That's because the numbers on the repeatable leves are written here with the total exp earned after three turn ins. so your total of 48k for hq is a match.

    This guide is impressive and gives a decent breakdown of the efficiency of each levequest for faster leveling. However, your numbers are slightly skewed.

    Take Hitting Below the Belt, for Example. I just completed this quest following your logic for number of turnins.

    your guide states you get 16281 (HQ: 48843)
    However, When I turned in HQ's I got 16281, and turning in the quest three times I netted 48843.

    I thought maybe I am reading your guide incorrectly, but then I noticed the non-repeatable leves you have listed here the same way.

    so...bottom line is this. your guide seems correct, but incorrectly worded, thus making it difficult to decipher. Whether I am reading it wrong or your information is wrong, your not getting the effect you wanted out of me by posting this guide.

    Thank you for reading this criticism and understand I am simply looking to make sure you know the flaw I picked up on!

    Good luck and happy posting!
