FFXIV – Leatherworker Class Quest Guide

A list of Leatherworker class quests, what they require, and what they give.

Leatherworker class quests certainly aren’t a requirement, but they do give some nifty rewards including the level 50 main hand tool Pinga.

This guide is outdated as of the 2.1 patch! I will be fixing it all up once I can. Please check my FFXIV guide list for updates. Sorry for the inconvenience!

The overall goal of this and the other tradecraft class quest guides is to give those of you leveling some idea of what to do ahead of time (and know what gear is to come), or for those of you (like me) who rush your tradecrafts and go back and do the class quests later.

There are three particular things to note here:

  1. Every quest sans your level 1 has a monetary optional reward instead of gear. These amounts are not listed.
  2. The required items for the quests between 1 and 15 can be purchased at either a guild supplier or tradecraft vendor. It’s up to you whether you want to craft or purchase the requested item.
  3. The optional rewards are the same among every tradecraft. For example, the level 10 Carpenter quest offers the same rewards as the level 10 Culinarian quest and so on. This does not apply to level 50 quests.
