Hi there,

I started in Gridania. I've currently maxed out my 8 guildleves (2 failed due to d/c's), and finished the quest chain up through the Lancer's guild having injured members brought in and then speaking to the woman in the Adventurer's Guild....now what? I did some local guildleves to up my weaving, but from my understanding, I can't start the next Gridania quest until I reach rank 10, which I assume means Thaumaturge (my class) or another class's rank as opposed to physical level.

So, is FF14 just going to be grindy to up my Thaumaturge level once I've maxed out Regional Guildleves for the next 36 hours/completed the quest chain available? Or am I missing something that I should be doing?

Please don't flame me, I'm enjoying the game and not complaining...just confused as to what I should/could be doing while I can't obtain anymore regional guildleves. Sorry if this is in the wrong area.

And one last question, how do I regain Guardian's Favor once I lose it?

Yep time to grind.. go kill mobs solo or join others in their Guildleve events.
For next quest line you need your Class Rank to be 10+.

Glad you having a good time with the game ... i think its awesome.

Guardian favor regens over time. (I cant quote the exact rate but it will come back as time passes)

Thanks for the quick reply. :)

When I help others with their guildleves, do I receive the bonuses as well or just them? And are parties the cause of symbols to the left of people's names?

Sorry for the noobish questions!

You will receive completion gil. No gear or anything unless you have the same leve active as the person you are doing it with.

The symbols next to their names are their Linkshell.

Found another question that I can't seem to get an answer to anywhere.

Why am I only getting thaumaturge exp. sometimes while killing mobs? It used to be nearly every attack + a bonus at the end. Now I kill full mobs and don't receive any, whereas I'll receive 200~ from other mobs?

Also interested in the class skill-ups...Is it based on the difficulty of the mob/some random factor?

The "bonus" you speak of at the end is actually a tally(sum) of all the skill ups you acquired during the fight. You are not getting the Skill up during battle, its not rewarded until you defeat the mob.

Ah, so the end is just a summary? But even then, I'm not receiving any Class Exp on certain mobs of the same identity, while I do with some of the others.

I'm assuming even though certain mobs share the same color difficulty, (Blue, for example) they're actually different "levels." I killed a blue Funguar and got 183 Thauma exp, then another one and received none.

Exp seems to be assigned randomly as you use skills. So, the more difficult the mob, the longer it takes to kill and the more skills you have to use to defeat it, the more chances you have to gain exp when you use a skill.

My Problem with this at moment is, that i don't really find random people to do leves. Many times i was standing in one of the camps asking for party to kill something/ do leves. I never get responses while like 500 people surrounding me. But maybe i am on the wrong server with only japanese which only want to play with other japanese people. No clue...

This makes the most sense so far. Thanks!
