I know everyone was frantic to log out in an inn or sanctuary...but do you think the counters are actually on and ticking for leve allowances and rested xp? I for one hope they are...more so for the leve allowances than anything.

Your thoughts?

I know in the previous betas they did, I would expect them too here also.


Now..... now that I think about it I'm mad because I don't think I logged out in my inn. /sadface

I hope so. I didn't use a single leve in phase 4, and I logged out in my Inn, so I'll be pretty stoked if I can log in to 1.5 levels of rest XP and a bunch of leves.

Me too. I read a "guide" to leveling up and it said to save your leves for second jobs and crafting....so I did, hoping it would make the leveling up process faster...

So what is it again...3 leves every 12 hours? So 6 leves a day since the 16th. About 8 days so we're looking at around 48 leves to use...that would certainly be nice.

I think iirc that 30 is the most you can have

99 should be the most you can have. I think you can only have 16 active at any given time though.

Nope, they stack to 99... or they did in phase 3.

Question: If I logged out on my PUG will the rested exp also count when I switch to my LNC? Or does it only work for the one that you log out on?

Will be awesome if they are. I only played for 3 hours of the first day of P4 so rested XP for all this time will be epic.

Does rested XP max out at all for FFXIV? I know some games do and some don't.

From an implementation stand point, it makes more sense to store a timestamp that gets updated when specific events happen while you're logged in, rather than requiring the server to have to constantly check stuff for your character while you're logged out. So my guess is that leve allowances are rest exp will continue to accumulate from our perspective, even though servers are not necessarily online.

Rested exp only accumulates in the right zones, for example some outposts have it, and the inns do.
To tell if you are in a rest zone a cresent moon shows up over your EXP bar.

No difference between Inn and Sanctuary

I think rested xp caps at a level and a half...but I don't know that for sure...it might just be capped at one full level, but it's definitely capped.

Thought that you got it regardless of where you logged out, but more if you log out at a sanctuary.

Yes, 99 is the max.

Had that many stored up in P3 before I started doing Leves instead of dorking around.

Could be changed now, I don't intend on saving that many up again. :D

Also could have been pure chance that day for the total to be 99, it is divisible by 3.

I heard that leves are wasted on your main because you only get 100.
Is it assumed that it's best to save them for grinding classes and areas you dont enjoy?

That's not a total of 100 (or 99, as many have posted) for the entire lifetime of your character. The 100/99 limit is on the number of allowances you can store up and hold onto. You get 3 leve allowances every 12 hours. If you never use any of your allowances for 17 days, you'll stop gaining more because you've hit that cap.

People have suggested saving them for 2nd/3rd/etc classes, since you can only get the exp from the main storyline missions and city quests once. Once you've done all of those quests, any new classes you level will have to rely on the hunting log, FATEs, levequests, guildhests, repeated dungeon runs, and the exp from killing mobs. Not having story based quests leaves a big hole, so levequests make up for it.

Is there a place where you can see how many levequest you have? And do guildhest and levequest both count as the same, or are they two different things to stack up?

I sure hope so. I'm gonna need them. I spent my time during P4 leveling PUG and LNC, only to find out my group needed a tank. Now I have to play catch-up during EA and start leveling GLD and CNJ.

In your journal, down the bottom of the left-hand side, you see your number of active quests (out of 30), number of actively accepted leves (out of 16), and your leve allowance (out of 99).

And no, levequests are the only things that draw from the allowance. Guildhests have no leve requirement (being group content, and through DF). I was often having the 2nd level 10 hest running in DF in the background (as LNC) whilst I was running around FATE hunting, hunting log farming or grinding. As I took CNJ to 15 first, I was caught short around level 12, to get to 15 and resume story quests - spamming hests, FATES & HL filled the gap.

But do what others have said (if you can), and save the first time runs on subsequent hests for 2nd+ classes - the first-time EXP bonus is insane. The above level 10 hest gave 675 base exp + 175 for clearing with no KO (so 850 total). First time, with no KO yielded around 6k EXP from memory. This sort of boost is the norm too. I've got to get MRD to 26 for Mercy Stroke for my future DRG, so I will use them on that class (+ tank = insta-group lol!) for mega-exp hits @ 15, 20 & 25.
