While a vast improvement vs. the previous rank 'lumping', one has to ask why R1, R20, R40. Where oh where is R30 lol? Since I primarily use these to rank up my lesser crafts of weaver and leather, with both being 30+, I'm essentially right back in the same predicament of being offered nothing but 20 leves, which at this point, aren't worth the effort. I hope we get further delineation in the next patch.

Also, I didn't see any quests being offered in the R40 category.

The leves are grouped by 20s so R1~ is Ranks 1-19, then R20~ is Ranks 20-39, and so forth. Also maybe the game didn't offer you any R40~ leves today.

R40+ is usually only offered in cities with guild before. However they did add a bunch of brand new r40+ in-game now, like Walnut Wand of Elemental - Crimsonbark or Electrum Circlet - Broken Water (Previously the highest local circlet is Dark Silver).

keep in mind that the npc which will probably issue r40+ locals of your job, are city-exclusive.

leatherworker/carpenter/etc in gridania npc, blacksmith in limsa npc, and so on.

edit: oops, Khornette was faster answering XD.

cheers.

Yeah well, no r40 leves offered in Limsa Lominsa for Armorer or Blacksmith, and that is where BOTH guilds are located. This "organization" of leves did absolutely NOTHING to alleviate the problem. For bsm and arm, I got a total of 2 leves my rank or higher. The rest were at LEAST 5 ranks lower. I honestly see very little point to this change other than now I don't have to open every leve to make sure I don't miss a good one, I only have to open 3. Yippee. Couple that with nerfed SP on local leves and what a great day it is for crafters! /sarcasm

You have to be r35+ for r40 leve, r40+ for r45 leve and r45+ for r50 leve. I got 3 leves in Ul'dah, R40, R45 and R50 for Goldsmith, Profit! Also had R40 and R45 for Carpenter in Grid.

I have to disagree. Ignoring the fact that leves can be done MUCH faster by repeating level synths with one click, re-organizing the leve options makes accepting leves that much more efficient. Before you'd have to cycle through 4-6 options to know what rank leves you had available, now you can go directly to your leve of choice. Also, they DID increase the number of leves available at rank. I frequently got 0 leves at rank per reset before. Zero. If it's always 2-3 per reset now, I will be a very happy camper. Of course we won't know for sure until after many resets.
