FFXIV – Blacksmith Powerleveling Leves Guide

Leveling Blacksmith via leves with efficiency in mind.

Leveling Blacksmith via leves with efficiency in mind.
Recommended Videos

Hello, my fellow Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn players! Looking for a way to get the most out of leves while leveling your Blacksmith class? The information covered here may be just what you need.

This guide has been updated for 2.1! Please check my FFXIV guide list for updates.

This guide only covers leves from levels 10 to 45, and I recommend starting your leve grinding post level 20. You can start before, but it’s generally better to save those leve allowances for more meaningful experience gains later on.

Each listing below shows how many times you will need to complete a leve to cover individual levels (up to five levels above the minimum), as well as to rush five or ten levels ahead.  The goal here is efficiency over speed because mass-crafting high quality items can be a heavy task.

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 Blacksmith 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: Port of Call: Ul’dah; Twice as Slice
  • Level 15: Riveting Run; Tools of the Trade
  • Level 20: Claw Daddy; The Devil’s Workshop
  • Level 25: Cleaving the Glim; Mors Dagger
  • Level 30: Can You Spare a Dolabra; Don’t Fear the Reaper
  • Level 35: Spice Cadet; Seemed Like the Thing to Get
  • Level 40: Streamlining Operations; File That Under Whatever
  • Level 45: You Stay on That Side; I Maul Right

Remember: Crafting XP is not taken into consideration in these numbers!
(If you see any mis-types on the numbers, please let me know. I’ve gone through these a couple of times looking for mistakes, but they always seem to slip through.)
