There are tutorials and they are not that hard to find.
Well I decided to try out the crafting classes last night and see how they work. I picked up a leve then I went to do it. I noticed online that it required wind crystals I only had 3 so I thought I wouldn't be able to finish it considering I needed to do the synthesis 5 times. So I get the quest and start the synthesis. I noticed that after each synthesis I still had my 3 crystals even when I FAILED the synthesis. So I turn in the 5 synthesis that I had created and noticed that I was rank 4 Weaver with very little effort and I didn't even have to farm my own materials or crystals, either I already had them(crystals) or they were given to me(materials).
That is the point of my whole post. You don't really have to quest for anything because everything is GIVEN to you. I don't think alot of people realize how different this is from XI where you had to quest for maps, spells, gear, weapons, crafting mats, etc. You don't have to do that in XIV. They took those time syncs away with leves. Now I understand why there is a downtime on them. One thing I did like about WoW was that I could log in for 5 minutes and accomplish something. Now the same can be said about XIV. I can log in do a leve get a few crafting/exp levels then log off. XI I could log in for 5 hours and get nothing I wanted accomplish.
Anyone knows what happens if I don't turn in the armor I crafted for the leves? Will I be able to pick that leve again?
