How tough are the faction levequests?Follow

Before i go spending 100 faction points on one, I want to make sure I'm not going to be utterly destroyed and wasting them. I'm level 19/rank 13, and the levequest says it recommends a RANK of 20, but any discipline. Non-combat classes suck at combat anyway, so I'm wondering if these are non-combat missions? Should I wait on trying these?

Mmm, I'd imagine if you have to kill something for the levequest you'll need a r18+ class to do it.

Are there fieldcraft leves?

I just did this one:
R18 MRD, Level 33. Wasn't too tuff.

The Horn and Hand one you can do at nearly any level I think as it is just running around and collecting things. The battle related ones (Brotherhood of Blades and A's Shields) I recommend being at least rank 18 in a combat job before you try and solo.

my 17 maurader did just fine for the shields. Horn and the Hand can be done on anything as there is no fighting.

I just did one (Operation: Kobold as Ice) as a r18 Marauder. I went in a little apprehensive seeing as the higher-than-normal rewards suggested higher-than-normal difficulty, but it seemed about average for a one star rank 20 leve. The Kobolds were easy to take out one at a time, though all 10 of them start bunched up. I used Disorient to pull them away from the group one at a time and took my time killing them (actually trying to milk the fights for SP and EXP instead of just destroying them). I only died once when I got three links in a row without rest, but otherwise it was a breeze.

Ive soloed them as r21 Archer. Other classes could probably go earlier.
