first is craft leveling.. to level a craft Im assuming you just remake the last item you made in the crafting log over and over again until its possible to make the next items on the list (i.e your level is high enough that you can get enough progress points per attempt before you run out of durability) and repeat?

As for class leveling ok lets say I did all the side quests and current class/main story quests (i.e every side quest in uldah, eastern, western and central thal nan) and just havent done the mission to get on the airship yet. Now lets szy i stop there and decide to level another class.


since side quests and done and main story quests in that area are done, then all id have for that class is guild/class quests correct? so how would I level that class outside of guild quests and hunting logs? you may say guildleves but ok lets say I do them all and are now out of tickets and dont get more for 12 hours, how do you level a class sat that point? log out and let your guild tickets come back (i.e wait days) or just randomly kill mobs (old school FFXI style) for 150 ex per kill until you level up?

edit: also do crafting/gathering/ classes have cross class abbilities are is cross classing just specific to actualy melee jobs?

i.e fishing, cooking, mining, alchemy etc etc dont have cross abilities?

Craft leveling..... for me, the craft leves? ... or whatever they are called are the quickest ways to get exp AFTER you complete our log. Once the log is done and you're missing a few thousand exp, the craft leves are where it's at. I got Armorer to 17 in a little over an hour just with the log and then doing craft leves between the logs.
Exp class leveling.... Each city has a bunch of side quests and such that it can take you to about Lv. 12 in a class quickly. After that, the guildhests and battle leves will get it exp quickly if and only if, you search for leves that are above your level and get you the max amount of exp possible. Do not forget that your hunting log is a huge help at earlier levels and will give you a big exp boost is you pay attention to what is need and at what point you searching for it.

If you are unfortunate enough that your second class is in a city where you already did all the quests, then it's old school kill things quick, use your hunting log, get into guildhests ASAP and rock out leves and you should be good.
Good luck, and happy hunting.

Crafting cross class ability is absolutely important. I've been on a roll making bunch of Militia Accessories HQ tonight all thanks to cross class abilities and double melded gears (with a triple melded mainhand tools).

Yea, like I have no idea what you mean right there, lol. Is there a site of forum that go's into that? Because I've been trying to make money with Armorer and I've only had slight success.

The Zam database shows the skill lists. Just as an example, here are the skills for a Carpenter and Blacksmith. Note the level 15 and 37 skills can be used by all crafting classes. I haven't got my crafting up that high yet so someone else could better explain if there's more to it.

It depends what you're crafting. Low level mining + Goldsmithing + hanging around Uldah = win. I got Goldsmithing from around 10 - 20 very quickly and cheaply making brass ingots with materials that I mined for free - and got my Mining from 5 - 10 very quickly - over there. I assume Fishing and Culinarian go together very well, also, as well as Botany and Carpentry?

Personally, I didn't find the amount of exp from leves to be worth it for any DoH or DoL jobs I've levelled, and save my leve allowances for putting exp on my combat jobs which are much slower and harder to exp up.

Im sure crafting gets hard to lvl eventually.... i mean just look how horrible it was (and expensive) in FFXI lol. also what gathering or other craft goes with Alchemy then?

edit: as for the lvl 15 and 37 carpenter skills can be used by other classes how ca you see that in the database? I see nothing that would suggest other classes can use em

Mouse over the skill and look at the bottom, "Disciple of the Hand". If you look up other skills (crafting or otherwise) you'll see that it lists the classes/jobs that can use them.
