Levequetsts not getting 8 per 36 hours?Follow

So about 2 days ago I did levequests, used all 8 that I could do. Now the npc is offering me new levquests, but it's telling me I already have levequests, and i'll need to exchange for them, and that I can only do this 4 times per day.

The levequests already in my journal are ones i've already completed, they have a green tick on the right hand side. Why are they still even there? I don't get it, I thought we could do 8 levequests every 36 hours, but if I can only exchange 4 of the old completed levequests from 2 days ago for new ones per day then i'll only be able to do 4 levequests and not 8?

That wiki entry looks to me as though it hasn't been updated from beta, it still says 48 hours and it's 'not sure if it will stay that way for release' so that doesn't answer his question.

But I know what you're talking about, I thought in the announcement they said that we were only going to be able to have 8 at a time, but I took all the combat ones, 2 gathering ones, and like, 6 crafting ones, so either it remained like it was in beta with 8 and 8, or you can take whatever's offered now, I have no clue, it bears further examination.

When you complete a battle leve, it stays in your journal grayed out. Once the leve cooldown has ended, you can go and exchange new leves for the old ones in your journal. You can exchange a single leve for up to 4 old leves (or was it three?). Doing this will increase your gil reward for the new leve based on the combined star rating of the leves you exchanged.

To be fair that wiki page hasn't been updated since beta and the exchange thing is quite confusing. Personally I hate Wikipedia and I think the layout of wiki pages are horrendously confusing to read themselves.

As to the OP I just exchanged all the old ones (completed ) for the new ones. 4 times in a day is plenty of leeway.

The resets are on a set cooldown timer for everyone, every 36 hours. Last one was last night at 8pm EST, next will be tomorrow morning at 8am, next one Thursday at 8pm, etc. etc.... Once the reset hits, all the ones in your journal become exchangeable.

Wait so when does the 36 hours restart when you've done 8/8 or just per individual?

I.e.

Is it this?

Day 1 - I do 7/8.
Day 2 - I do 1/8.
Day 3 - I won't get any.
Day 4 - after 12 hours I get another 8

Or is it this?

Day 1 - I do 7/8.
Day 2 - I do 1/8.
Day 3 - after 12 hours I get another 7
Day 4 - after 12 hours I get another 1

It's at a set server time. No one knows when at the moment though.

Sure we do. Next leve reset is tomorrow, in exactly 16hrs 37min of this post....

You have 36hrs to do 8 Regional, and 8 Local Leves. Regional (battle, gathering, etc) You can do up to 8 in that 36hr time frame. Finished quests, failed, or unfinished quests can be traded in upon the Leve reset, they remain in your journal until you do trade them in. Local Leves (such as crafter specific quests) operate in a similar fashion, only finished or failed quests are removed from your journal, so you have to keep track of how close you are to your "8".

If you never did get all 8/8, and the Leve times are reset after 36 hours, then you've missed out on making the most of this system.

**I don't know if there is a way, but our AWESOME admin, Wint made an equally awesome app for the Logitech G15/G19 keyboards. Having a handy countdown timer telling you when Leves reset, helps keep me on track!
