I just wanted to ask a question about faction leves before I grab some prematurely. Are faction leves harder than lvl 20 battlecraft leves? the reason im asking is they all seem to have higher rewards even though they are the same lvl. Im a rank 17 gladiator and can solo the lvl 20 leves quite nicely but id like to know if ill manage with these?

I've done several Faction leves and they are a bit tougher than regular 20 leves, but not too much tougher. With a group of 16 Gld, 16 Con, and 18 pug, we had little problem with 1 star faction leves, could have probably done a 3 or 4 star with the group we had.

A suggestion though before picking one...try to wait to get one that gives you guild marks or a piece of gear.

If you fail it, you can retry the leve after the next guildleve reset, and it will NOT count towards your eight, so don't be scared to experiment.

Just don't accidently exchange it before you finish it.

Hmmm to be quite honest, I've never done faction leves. I've accumulated 300+ points per faction at the moment, and never felt the rewards were good enough for me (CON) to take them. It's either gil, guild marks or a piece of equipment that isn't really suited for my class. Furthermore, some item rewards from faction leves I got from regular regional ones which makes me go 'meh' about faction leves even more ;/

Yea...the rewards are not that great. The ones I did had close to 2500 marks on them so I went ahead and grabbed them. Hopefully SE adjusts the rewards. I doubt I will do anymore faction leves until they offer more.

At the end of (every? besides horn and hand) leve, there is a chest drop that may have equipment in it as well.

The "Reward" is only half of the reward.

Both of my chests were about 5K gil...not too exciting. Damnit...I want goodies.

Actually, now that you mentioned it.... I was helping my brother do a faction leve with onion Onion Patterns (boots) reward, and at the end of leve I got them in my loot list/inventory as well. Not sure if it's because his reward was those boots, or if it was purely by chance.
Either way, 100 or 200 guild marks is too much for a random chance of an (usually average) item, in my opinion. Guild marks, as well as gil is easy to come by via regional leves as well, and mostly everything else can be crafted/bought from Wards.

Faction leves do have better rewards for sure, but I personally like them better than the normal battlecraft leves. I've only done a few so far so not sure if it's true for all of them, but I like how there's an NPC to talk to explain what your doing the leve for. Even if it's just a little text I like the npc interaction better.

I just pick ones with good Guild points as a reward when they pop up.

Especially the lvl 20 Horn and Hand "Collecting Seashells" one. As this is just finding crates in Limsa. No fighting involved.
