Ok im new to this series and kind of new to mmo’s I have played wow but only for a few months and I need some help with XIV.

I’m in the city of Limsa Lominsa and I am a Marauder.

1. I finished the first chain quest Treasure's of the Main now I don’t know where to go from here.

2. I did the Regional Levequests for Discipline of war and Magic now I don’t have any thing to do there was only 4 of them.


3. How do you craft items and what skills would be good for a Marauder?

4. How do you join a Guild when ever I go talk to the NPC they just tell me info about there guild but I cant join?

Any other info for a super noob would be great and thanks for your help

This post in the sticky has some good links.

This guide should help with some other questions you may have.

1. More story-line quests become available at Rank 10 and another at Rank 20. Possibly more at 30, 40, 50.

2. You can ask to join a party so they can share Guildleve's with you. You might be high enough level to try the Rank 10+ leve's that they offer as well.

3. To craft... there is a guide here.

3.5 Good skills for Maurader? Well that's debateable, but Pugilist has a good self-heal ability at lvl 4. Lancer and Archer also have +attack abilities at around the same level. Depends on how you want to play the class. Here is a list of classes and their abilities you can get.

4. To "join" a guild, all you need to do is equip the weapon associated with that guild. (ex. Axes = Maurader, Sword = Gladiator, Saw = Carpenter, Pick-axe = Miner, etc.) You can find each of their "tools of the trade" in the Classes section of the wiki.

You won't get your next chain quest until you're physical level 10.

What rank are you now? From my experience in Ul'dah, if you're Rank 5 or 6 (and you should be) you can do the "Rank 10~" levequests now. You may also want to do some fieldcraft levequests; developing a fieldcraft will be very useful for you. Note that you can only do 8 regional levequests in a 36 hour period. You can also do 8 local levequests, so you may also want to start thinking about developing your handcraft skills as well.

You craft items by becoming a Disciple of Hand class, which is done by equipping the main tool for that class (and it's a good idea to equip the secondary tool in the off hand as well). Then your main menu will have a Synthesize entry and you can synth stuff in the class whose tool you equipped.

I haven't joined a Guild yet myself; it's my understanding that you have to be Rank 10 in a class before you can join that class's Guild.

Storyline quests become available based on your physical level, not class rank.

That's how you become a class. You can't join the guild for that class until you become Rank 10 in that class; at least, that's my understanding.

You just need to buy and equip the required weapon. You can usually get them from NPC's in the guild or at the Market Wards in the cities.

You can use the database to search for the NPC's that sell them.

Not dumb questions at all. In some ways, its a shame the game doesn't explain things like this for players who aren't familiar with SE's ambiguity.

It's also better than making a post whining about how hard the game is ;)

Ok so I go and get my Battlecraft Leves for the adventure guild and I went and did them yesterday and now do day I go back today and the NPC tells me that there are not more Levequest for me. Then I go back to the Aetheryte and try to initiate a Levequest then it tells me the same thing that I have no Levequest to initiate. So what am I suppose to do now?

Every 48 hours you can trade in your levequests, for new ones. Basically the same ones just redoing them. So, in the mean time start doing the crafting levequests, or grind.

It's actually every 36 hours and they're not always the same.
Have a read of my thread there is a lot of good information in there.

You can't obtain marks until you have access to level 20 leves, which is around level 13-14 marauder.
