Quick question...where do you get them? All I've got are battle and fieldcraft leves
Try talking to that NPC who's standing directly next to the one you've been talking to for all your other leves...
He gives out "local leves" for crafting, as opposed to the "regional leves" for battle and fieldcrafts. They work slightly differently. They activate as soon as you take them. You get provided all the materials to do the craft, either at the leve counter or by the client; you don't have inventory access to either the materials or the completed goods (use the "Requested Materials" button on your synthesis interface to access the local levequest materials). They don't make you "bound by duty" when active. They aren't aborted when you log out or zone; you must either make the requested items or use up all your materials to end them. You don't trade them in like regional leves; they simply disappear from your journal when you talk to the client after succeeding or failing. You can have up to eight active at one time. You can take eight in a leve refresh period; this limit is separate from the eight regional leve limit.
