Returning Player---Leves QuestionFollow

I know that there have been several threads recently asking about changes since players have last played, so I really didn't want to add to that string of threads----however, I have been trying to do my own research and reading through the forums, but I have been unable to find a clear explanation of how the leves are currently working. It seems that whenever I go to pick up new leves based on the timer on this site I am only alotted 4 leves? I noticed in some of the patch notes that it is supposed to be 12--am I reading this wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

Also--is the "dated" gear not good to use? Are the stats lesser or not useable at all---or should I not worry about replacing those items until I would have been ready for the next upgrade anyway?

I swear I have been looking for this info so I must be bad at research, but with all the changes and just coming back yesterday (after a year) it is hard for me to tell what info is really up to date.

Thanks in advance for any help!!

The amount of leves available at one time from the NPC can vary from 4 to 5 per camp. You can complete those, return, and pick up more leves. You are allotted so many leve allowances per earth day, and can be accumulated up to 99(at least that is what I was told). You are still only allowed to pick up to 8 leves at a time.

4 leve allowances every 12 real hours, stackable to 99 leve allowances.

To add to the above answers, the "dated" gear does have different stats than the non dated gear. You should choose which ever gear you want to use or the ones that will suit your playstyle the best. I do need to mention that all the "dated" gear has an OPTIMAL rank. This means that they can be equipped by any level regardless of how high they are. A warning though, equipping it at a lower rank than the optimal, you will not get the full benefits of the equipment. The non-dated gear have a REQUIRED level. This means you cannot equip it until you have met the required level in the listed jobs/classes. The non-dated gear can have materia added to it and be converted into materia. The dated gear cannot have materia added but can be converted into materia. Hopefully this answers your questions.

Thank you so much for your replies! Very helpful. One last question for clarification.... When you say the leves can stack to 99---that just means that if I don't pick up leves every 4 hours I don't lose out on them? They will accumulate to 99 but I can only pick up 8 at a time? I assume this must be a really recent change since when I returned I only had 8 leves available to use?

Swisa---thanks for the info on the gear--that's exactly what I needed to know:-)

Thanks again!!!

Yes. Every 12 real life hours you can pick up 4 more levs. If you happen to not pick them up, they will add to an allowance (think savings) and it will keep going up all the way to 99. If you have 99 and then dont pick any up, you will then lose them. When you choose to pick some levs up, you can hold up to 8 battlecraft/gathering levs and also up to 8 crafting levs. So technically its 16, but that hasn't changed at all since release. You've always been able to hold up to 8 battle/gathering and an additional 8 crafting levs.
