Blacksmith Levequest List

Overview
Blacksmith Levequest List

IMPORTANT 2.1 UPDATE

As of patch 2.1, the xp rewarded by some of the levequests has been increased. I believe these are usually the single item turn-ins. Unfortunately, I got most of my XP values from a friend who no longer plays. I'm working on leveling up all of the crafts myself to update them, but the XP rewarded is not currently correct.

Leveling Up Blacksmith

An effective way to level up any crafting class is by crafting HQ items for specific levequests. By turning in an HQ item instead of an NQ, you will receive triple the XP and Gil rewards from the values listed below. It can also be efficient to buy HQ items off of the market place if the price is right. I have listed all the levequests in order from lowest xp to highest xp to allow you to determine the optimal items to craft or buy. When choosing which items to turn in, keep in mind that one quest in each level range, except for Lv. 1s, will have a quest accepted from Limsa Lominsa and turned in elsewhere. Remember to factor in travel costs and time.

Levequest Allowances

To be able to accept a Levequest, you will need at least one allowance. You can see how many allowances you have by opening your quest Journal and looking in the bottom right corner. You are awarded 3 allowances at 8:00 AM EST and another 3 allowances at 8:00 PM EST each day. These cap out at 100, so be sure to use them before hitting the cap!

Important: The allowance is consumed when you accept the levequest, not when you turn it in. If you accidentally accept a levequest and drop it, you will still lose your allowance.

Regarding Multiple Turn-Ins

Once you reach level 20, two levequests per level bracket allow you to repeat the levequest up to three while only using a single levequest allowance. For example, if a quest calls for 3 items and you have 9 in your inventory, you will be prompted to "Submit Additional Items" twice. To make the most of this bonus, turn in all HQ items for a huge boost in xp. This is the most efficient use of levequest allowances, if you are running low.

Regarding Item Rewards

The items awarded for completing a levequest appear to be chosen from a pool of items based on the city the levequest is accepted in and the level range of the levequest. This pool of items has five possible items, including a low amount of Earth Shards, a high amount of Earth Shards, a low amount of Fire Shards, a high amount of Fire Shards, or an item specific to the level range.

Unavailable Levequests

If a levequest is not available for you and you're the appropriate level, you will need to travel to the quest hub where the levequest is turned in and complete the first levequest available there. This will require you to be on a Disciples of War/Magic class.
