Hey everyone,

So I just made the long, first walk to Camp Nine Ivies to do a crafting leve there for Tailoring. When I arrived I attuned to the crystal, good, good, then spoke with Troegmoer the NPC who gives me the starting materials. The strange thing was that he didn't give me any materials, he just gave me my reward without my having crafted anything at all for him. Now this is really quite annoying as I got zero crafting xp, for what would have been I think 4 items I would have had to make (about 1200 tailoring in all, + lots of physical xp). Now I have to wait 36 goddamned hours before I can pick up another leve to replace this one - which gave me nothing but a 900gil and some water shards. ooo ahhh.

Has this happened to anyone else? Does anyone know why this happened to me? Why is this game making me a sad panda??

Haven't had this happen to me (yet). Probably want to page a GM and let them know, so they can hopefully pass the info on through the proper channels that can fix the issue.

Are you sure you haven't done that beforehand? You get the materials right after you receive leves for EVERY local leves that is not:
1. In the city
2. In the begining camp with the NPC that DOES NOT give the facility option.
I always do the synthing in cities before I go on my reward-collection tour. It helps ALOT, because later level leves require Guild Facility and higher.

I didn't know that you are given materials for leves that are beyond the first camps. How did you find this out? That's a pretty important bit o' info right there!

I make a point to do my leves one at a time, so based on what (little) information the quest gives me I amble on over to the NPC in question (after using this awesome site to find where the hells they at), then I speak to them to grab me the materials and synth only the item they ask of me right under their noses. In the case of my auto-complete leve I understand what you are asking, did I do the synth beforehand because I would have had the materials being he was 1) not in the city or 2) not in the nearest camp. the only thing I did do was speak to him before I had crafted his items (assuming I had to speak to him to get the materials, which you said isn't the case with such leves).

However, rest assured I do my synths one at a time. There's zero way I could have done his synths by accident when doing another leve. But knowing that I get materials for far away leves right off the bat, if nothing else thats a golden piece of info right there. I'm going to put this down to a bug, and I would report it but the website for bug reports is given in game, and uhm ... I no can alt tab out. Go figure.

When you accept a leve that gives you materials it will say so the moment you accept it. A message along the lines of "You recieve the required materials." or something.

I can say with certainty that you were given the materials beforehand for this leve, the fact the NPC completed it once you talked to him leads me to believe you finished it at a prior time regardless if you want to believe this or not.

I do see where you're coming from. But understand that for me to have made the materials by accident would have involved me making the materials; and with all due respect, I simply don't think I could accidentally sit down and do ten minutes of synth'ing. It's a very deliberate process. :) Anyway, I'll label this bug and go about the last few of my weaver leve's.

Thanks for the replies and thoughts, and especially the golden nugget of info about getting mats beforehand when accepting 'faraway' camp leves. Awesomeness!

This happened to me i did the leave and after finishing it i forgot to hand it in for my rewards.
So when the leave timer reset and i got new leaves the one i done before hand was still in the list of leaves as i never turned it in.
So when i went to do it, i clicked on the NPC obviously it was all ready done so i just got the rewards,
