You can do 8 battlecraft (or fieldcraft) guildleves every 36 hours.

You can get 3-4 per city each 36 hours.

To get the full 8 you either need to go to 2 or 3 cities, usually it falls short one and you must go to all 3.

To teleport to a city (from another city or area not by the city) costs 6 anima.

Anima regenerates 1 per 4 hours.

1 Anima per 4 hours = 8 Anima every 32 hours.

It can take anywhere from 1~2 hours to walk from city to city.

I can shout for hours for a teleport some times without getting one (This also doesn't ultimately solve that those people will want to save their anima eventually as well).

???

To do the 8 leves per 36 hours are we just suppose to walk from city to city, every 2 days, spending hours and hours and hours just walking around? Really? Or am I missing something? (Hopefully I am, I'm not trying to be a smart *** here).

Please take this like a player who from now on, will try to help others to improve their time with the game more than someone who's trying to hide/cover the problems with the game.

What I do is take the leves with another 2 friends, we get between 3 of us 24 animas total in 36 hours, besides we share the experience and try to get the most of our leves, we usually only teleport twice (to the other 2 cities) to get everything done so it's only 12 animas leaving even room to do something else.

If you are alone you can always shout/make a party looking for another 2 ppl to team up.

I hope this helps.

I guess you dont have understand the system yet.

Ok you got 4 battlecraft leaves in each citie, but you get also leves for the discipels of the land like fishing, or mining. So you can have a total of 8 before you leave the citie.

Once you have completed your 8, and you have to still wait on timer to reset, just grind around, or run to other cities, but i thinkt the best thing to do is, team up with other players

So if you have a group of six you can do at least 24 battlefield leaves, witch will give you the oppotunity to kill time

It's not like you have to go to all cities? I pick up 8 from one when I'm feeling lazy. Also GL are becoming more and more redundant, the moneys now chump change and I rarely get SP from it anyway.

1-2hr is a terrible estimation. Uldah to Gridania is less than 30 minutes, Uldah to LL is not much more either.

Some times the battlecraft leves can be as few as 3, and some times the fieldcraft leves (for a specific disciple of the land) can be as few as two. Unless you want to level multiple disciples of the land jobs along with your disciple of war/magic job this isn't really practical. Also, what about those of us who don't want to level a disciple of the land? Maybe some people just want to level a fighting/magic job, maybe some just want to level a disciple of the land job? Different strokes for different folks, but it seems more like the system is forcing people to do one thing or another that they really don't have any desire to. Honestly, I would be happy if I could get the 8 maximum in one city. Also, you're right, the best thing to do is probably to team up with other players, but then why does Square Enix say the game can be enjoyed solo, especially when it comes to guildleve and experience points?

How do you pick up 8 from one city within 36 hours? I tried to make it clear in my opening post that if I was missing something to please inform me. I'm not actually making this as a complain thread, I'm honestly just curious what we're expected to do or if I'm missing something.

3(4) of the highest ranked, then 3(4) of the next level down and 2(0) fieldcrafts.
Do lower level ones on higher difficulty.

Best idea so far, for some one wanting to do these casually solo anyhow. Thank you for the suggestion. Also thanks to anyone for any serious suggestions that are sincere.

Do more fieldcrafts? I think 1 DoW, Botanist, and Miner pretty easily fill me up. Would be even easier if I was doing more than one DoW.

I don't get where the 1-2 hours of travel between cities comes from. I've been running a lot since day one due to inviting new players to the LS and using my Anima up pretty quickly at CE release. It takes, maybe, 15 minutes to run from Ul'dah to Limsa Limosa ferry and another few minutes on the ferry. Ul'dah<->Gridania is a little bit longer...but no where near the 1-2 hour mark you're conveying. I would say, at most, 30 minutes of travel on foot between each city, give or take not including time you go off the path, stop to harvest/farm, etc.

I've also usually found on average, 3 Battlecraft leve's available (Rank 10 up), and 2 Fieldcraft leve's available "per" Fieldcraft. If I take my 3 Battlecraft, and 2 for each Mining and Botanist (I don't fish), that's 7 leves in one city.

Lets just say, that the game can be enjoyed solo, but can be better played in party :-)

But who knows, SE can add a ton of other leavequest, for special occasion like christmas, or halloween. It will surly not stay like this. In the meantime, after you completed your fighting leves, just run around killin things. The only thing different between that and doing leves, is that for completing leves you get a few EXP and some money.

as someone who only does appropriately ranked battle leves, I have to go to every city. I don't port unless I have someone waiting on me (or I die somehow and dont want to rewalk). Walking doesnt take hours, I feel I can make it from grid to uldah in 30 minutes, and most of LL to ulduah is a boat ride I tab our or otherwise afk for.

This may not be of help to you, if you keep all classes you're interested in leveling at about the same level. I usually have a class I'm leveling at a lower level, so I pick up 7 battlecraft leves in one city: 3 from rank 20 group and 4 from the rank 10 group. I usually then pick up either a rank 1 if I have a class low enough to make use of it or if it offers something useful as a reward (that's not often, but it does happen), or a fieldcraft leve to make up the difference.

The other option is to team up with others and trade teleports, sharing levequests.

Another option to extend the number of leves you do in 36 hours, though this does not help you get the 8 leves you can get for yourself: Team up with another person or a group, you get leves first while the others wait at camp or head to camp without getting leves first, the party does your leves, then the next person in the party goes to get his/her leves. Rinse and repeat until you're out of leves. If you get as many as 3 people together, this can take quite a bit of time and result in a lot of experience gained. The group I did it with in open beta didn't have time to finish all of them before we were falling asleep. :P

You could then use the suggestions others have already made about trading teleports. I think doing those two things together (sharing one person's leves at a time and trading teleports) is the best use of your allotted leves per 36 hours. If you're wanting to just go solo, you can do what I first suggested.
