This is sort of along the same lines as something that has me a little confused.
How exactly does the levequest system work? Why do you have to exchange leves after you've completed them, in order to start a new one? I recall reading a post by someone who mentioned saving up completed leves.
Can anyone shed some light on that? I have a bunch of leves completed. Some a have star with a 1 next to them and others have a star with a 0 next to them. I can't say I fully understand the purpose of it all.
The 0 star ones *should* be ones you haven't completed yet that you picked up during this leve cycle.
I'll try to explain as best I can.
Every 36 hours leves reset. For everything leve related, the time you get the leve is important, not the time you complete it.
Suppose you have 8 leves, all from the current period. If you try to take a new leve, you will be presented the trade in option IF you haven't completed all your current leves. Any leve you've attempted (finished/failed) will be grayed out, any that you haven't attempted will be available for trade at 0 stars.
After the leve reset, all leves from the previous period will be available for trade, whether you attempted them or not.
I'm not 100% sure how the stars are determined; I think they start at 1 star, but I know leves are worth 1 more star if you trade them at a different city (so if a Limsa leve was worth 1 in Limsa, it would be 2 in Gridania or Uldah). I *believe* if the leves are different virtues (the stained glass picture on the leve represents the virtue), it is also worth 1 star more. However, I've never seen a leve worth more than 2 stars to trade in.
If you trade in leves, you get a bonus to the coin/guild point reward of the leve. The bonus will be included in the leve description after the trade-in. I believe each star is a 10% bonus
Leve is worth 10k base.
You trade in 3 leves worth 2 stars each.
Leve confirmation screen now shows 16k reward for the leve.
