KillerGuides Has a New Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Guide. And It’s Fantastic.

Killer Guides has added another unofficial guide to their website. Their unofficial leveling guide is a new guide that promises to get your class to the level cap in 7 days or less. Aside from leveling advice it also delves into equipment and skill rotations as well as some Gil-making options and questing advice.

Given my limited spare time and a desire to spend that time playing FFXIV instead of researching it, I decided to give it a shot and see if the guide lives up to the hype.

final fantasy xiv leveling guide by KGWhy Killer Guides?

Before deciding to buy a guide, I wanted to see who actually is behind it. As it turns out, all guides on killerguides.com are written by independent authors. Unlike authors of official guides, they didn’t just get an assignment, but are genuinely passionate about the game, having spent an inordinate time leveling their own characters. Their writing is based on the perspective of hardcore gamers and it shows. They aren’t on some developer’s payroll, and their information isn’t edited or limited by what a game publisher might want or not want to reveal about how to play their game.

When you buy a game from Killer Guides you can also be sure that the information is accurate and authentic. Too many independent guides are just slapped together dribble, detailing some random author’s bumbling attempt to beat the game. The Killer Guides editors ensure that a guide contains true and useful information. It has to be more than just a narrative of a play-through. It has to contain real, useful information and well tested and thought out play strategies.

What Kind of Information Can Be Found in the Guide?
While it seems to be marketed as leveling guide, it’s actually a complete guide to FF14. Just about every aspect of the game has a section devoted to it. Everyone can agree that the Final Fantasy world is rich, and the games that come from it have plenty of depth and content. FF14 is no exception to this. The game has many class combinations for character building, thousands of quests and an in-depth crafting system. Each of these elements has a sizable number of pages devoted to mastering them.

Leveling Up Fast
For most players on the look out for an MMO guide, it’s about leveling faster, getting better equipment and not wasting time getting stuck on mundane quests or less rewarding ones.

In the leveling department, this Final Fantasy XIV guide definitely meets the expectations. It details the most efficient way to reach the level cap, including the top quest lines and the most efficient leveling locations.

However, it’s not only about quests and locations. In FF14, the key to an effective character also includes getting skill rotations right. This guide offers a variety of different styles of play and details the tskill rotations that will maximize leveling progress for a wide range of class combinations.

It makes a pretty big claim in that it can get players to the level cap in as little as seven days. I like to switch a lot between alt classes, so while I wasn’t able to test that yet in full, I definitely noticed that I progressed at a much faster pace using the provided leveling guide.

Quest Walkthroughs
No guide would be complete without a detailed walkthrough of quests, and this guide is no exception. It is based on multiple run-throughs of the game and aside from walkthroughs of the main story quests it also provides a very good coverage of additional side quests. Quest walkthroughs are presented in a logical structure and easy to follow steps, so players can easily proceed according to the guide as they progress through the game.

Character Creation
FF14 has a detailed character creation system that can leave new players puzzled and veteran players wondering if there is a killer combination they have missed. FF14’s character generation system means you have a lot of different choices when it comes to getting your race and class combination right. While there are downright right or wrong ways to set up your character, there are definitely a number of considerations that players might fret over. This guide details each choice and how that class will be played optimally. This allows players to choose the combination that fits them best.

Crafting and Money
It’s a material world, and acquiring material things is a goal of many players in the FF14 world. This guide details the best Gil making strategies and promises remarkable increases in players’ incomes if they do them correctly. The crafting system, including resource locations and a comprehensive list of recipes, is also included. At the time of writing there are some serious money makers provided in the guide and – if they guide keeps getting updated – it might be one of the best Gil-making tools out there.

Presentation
This unofficial guide is presented in electronic format. It can be downloaded as either a PDF or eBook file. Inside the guide looks likes any paper guide you might find in the store. It has colorful in-game images and text. Overall, it is presented as professionally as any official game guide.

Overall Impression
There were times where I was happy to sift through forums for hours on end, trying to find some hidden gems or the next secret leveling spot. I believe those times were around 1999 when EverQuest was still a thing and I still in high school. Nowadays, I’d rather go and pick up a single, one-stop reference that includes all the essentials – as long as it does live up to what it promises. Considering the time this guide has saved me – by not having to search, trying things out (before noticing they no longer work) or just doing it the traditional way of trial and error – it definitely was the right choice. As far as boosting game process goes, it pretty much lived up to its promise (though more maps would have been nice). All in all I can wholeheartedly recommend to get your own copy of Killer Guides’ FFXIV Guide.

Final Fantasy XIV Gil Farming and Crafting Tips.

ffxiv-crafting

Update: This article is just a brief primer on farming tips. Since the time of writing, I’ve found this guide. I recommend you head over and get yourself a copy as well. Not only does it have an insanely detailed chapter on the farming tips, but an absolutely brilliant leveling guide as well (see my review). I so wish I had gotten that when I first bought the game – it would have saved me a lot of time (which could have been used to improve the design of this blog instead :))

Gil is not much necessary when leveling earlier in Final Fantasy XIV but it will be crucial part of your life after you hit level 60. In dungeons and raids, even the repair cost can cause you broke. While a higher level content require a fine set to wear. These reasons are enough to earn more Gil.

Get more Gil by crafting and gathering
The first choice is making rich by crafting. It’s quite boring in leveling crafting. However, selling high value items can make you wealth faster. You can make more Gil as quick as leveling. A high quality item is immense to your crafting level. Successful or failed crafting, you gain level anyway. It is important to your crafting skill to turns the lower materials like ingot or thread to become a high quality items.

You should focus on crafting leves as much as possible. It will grants you a chunk of EXP as well as Gil. Be sure to change your leves into high quality items. Some Leves allow you to turn-in multiples items. It could boost one-three of your crafting skills. The daily mission from Grand Company Supply gives you a lot of EXP as well!

Another purpose for leveling crafting is to ensure that you will be able to afford for wearing a crafted gear. If you could craft any piece with Craftsmanship just do it. Even though it might not be the best gear you can get now, it is saver than buying it all. Just make sure that you can craft your own quality gears. If you can’t do it yourself, just buy it from market board. It helps you a lot in crafting.

Level 40+ crafted gear is your real way to make money. Moreover if you can make your crafting to level 50, a lot of profit will be yours. Since new level 50 players will be looking for dungeons gears. Don’t forget to promote yourself, many players need level-50 crafter to meld Materia for their new gear. There is a room to make money here.

Some crafting materials like fleece and webs are highly demanded for Weaver, you can sell it at a high price. Ore and woods from Mining and Botany has a high price for some server. Element shards that need by someone is likely to sell well too. You are not the only one crafter, sometimes selling crafting materials that often drop from NPC can gradually get you rich.

On the chance of repeating myself, this article is just a brief primer on farming tips. Since the time of writing, I’ve found this guide. I recommend you head over and get yourself a copy as well. Not only does it have an insanely detailed chapter on the farming tips, but an absolutely brilliant leveling guide as well (see my review). I so wish I had gotten that when I first bought the game – it would have saved me a lot of time (which could have been used to improve the design of this blog instead :))

Recommended DPS Build for Lancer and Dragoon

ffxivlancerdragoon

Update: This article is just a brief primer on build. Since the time of writing, I’ve found this guide. I recommend you head over and get yourself a copy as well. Not only does it have an insanely detailed chapter on the build, but an absolutely brilliant leveling guide as well (see my review). I so wish I had gotten that when I first bought the game – it would have saved me a lot of time (which could have been used to improve the design of this blog instead :))

There are two things to take into account when choosing build for Lancer or Dragoon. First is an attribute build which is how your stats go. Second is cross-class build that grants you extra skills. These can make difference in both solo and group activities. Build performance can be apparently seen at level 50 or more.

Attribute Build
You can upgrade your stats whenever your level is up. For Lancer and Dragoon, it is common tradition to push your stats point into strength. As strength determines how much damage you can inflict to your foes. You must give your point to strength as much as possible.

In the same situation to choose gear stats. No matter vitality, defense, or magic defense, it is not necessary to party player. Strength is a life of DPS role. When consider gear to put on strength is the most important factor to think about.

Vitality is the second important stats for Lancer and Dragoon. It increases your survivability. Since melee class like Lancer and Dragoon usually wear heavy armor and vitality always come with this type of armor. Your high defense is already enough. You don’t have to care much about this stat. Just don’t choose vitality over strength.

Dexterity is interesting since it increases critical chance but it doen’t ensure the damage as strength does. Also dexterity raises the chance of parry with is useful in situation of defense. However you should not be serious about it, usually dexterity will come with your gears. So it is enough for you.

Accuracy can make some worry to you, in boss fight this stat is necessary. Again, this stat always stick with high level gears. Dexterity is needed in level 50+ dungeons and raid. However it is not need for leveling.

Secondary stat to consider is critical hit rating, raise this value as much as possible. You will take an advantage to deal a lot of damage in a small time. Skill speed is another interesting because it will lower your skill cooldown but it affects Lancer and dragoon very little. But when you compare it pound to pound, critical hit rating is more interesting to invest.

Cross Class Build
Lancer has a lot of good choice for cross-class skills. You might not wish to spend leveling on other class, but it’s a good idea to level in Marader and Puglist. These 2 classes can access to Dragoon. Both have self healing and DPS cooldown. Alternatives choice are Conjurer that grants you a heal spell or Archer which give you critical hit rating increased.

Once you become Dragoon, the best option is Marauder and Puglist. It is a brilliant idea to level them to level 30. You will have an access to some abilities which is useful at level 50. Actually you will get an execution skill at level 26 which also grants self healing. On the other hand, level 30 Puglist gives you DPS cooldown and critical hit rating increased.

When you pick skill to learn, it can be based on situation, solo or party. When solo leveling, you can choose to go with Cure and Protect. However, when you enter the dungeon you can drop your dps and add up more survivability. It is because as a group you have enough damage.

On the chance of repeating myself, this article is just a brief primer on build. Since the time of writing, I’ve found this guide. I recommend you head over and get yourself a copy as well. Not only does it have an insanely detailed chapter on the build, but an absolutely brilliant leveling guide as well (see my review).

FFXIV Ramuh Guide in the Striking Tree

Update: This article is just a brief primer on primal fight. Since the time of writing, I’ve found this guide. I recommend you head over and get yourself a copy as well. Not only does it have an insanely detailed chapter on the primal fight, but an absolutely brilliant leveling guide as well (see my review). I so wish I had gotten that when I first bought the game – it would have saved me a lot of time (which could have been used to improve the design of this blog instead :))

The Striking Tree is level 50, 8-man trials. Players need to have level 65 or higher to attain in this battle. The class in your party can be various but it is recommended to have 2 dedicated healers and 2 tanks in your team.

FFXIV_Ramuh2

Ramuh
Ramuch can be difficult if you don’t get used to 8-man trials. His attack forms are melee and AoE spells. These wave attacks can easily pick off your tank and melee DPS like Dragoon if they are unaware.

Notable abilities

  • Thunder storm
    Thunderstorm will assault player and explode in nearby area. You should be aware of this spell as it deals quite amounts of damage. It is recommended not to stick together too much when fighting Ramuh. When the Thunderstorm is casted, lightning orbs will be dropped on the ground. The more orbs in the field the more powerful he is. To counter, assign someone is your team to keep collecting the orbs to weaken him.

  • Chaotic Strike
    Another fearsome spell from Lord of Levin is Chaotic Strike. This spell will freeze random player in place. Running to the Thunderstorm will break your teammate free when they are locked with Chaotic Strike.

  • Arbiter Adds and Rolling Thunder
    Once his HP drops to 60%, Ramuh will summon arbiter adds to attack your party. Those summons will be seen in a straight line. Just focus and avoid this line of incoming projectile. Ramuh will cast Rolling Thunder to tether 2 players. If your friends are tethered, you have to eat to 3 orbs to cancel it.

  • Bat Spawn
    At his last 30% of his life, Ramuh will spawn some bats which is quite easy to get rid of. His attack will repeat the above. Keep escaping from Thunderstorm, saving stunned teammate, collecting lightning orbs to neutralize his power and give all your damage to Ramuh.

On the chance of repeating myself, this article is just a brief primer on primal fight. Since the time of writing, I’ve found this guide. I recommend you head over and get yourself a copy as well. Not only does it have an insanely detailed chapter on the primal fight, but an absolutely brilliant leveling guide as well (see my review).

The Overview of 4 Disciples of FFXIV Realm Reborn

Update: This article is just a brief primer on disciples. Since the time of writing, I’ve found this guide. I recommend you head over and get yourself a copy as well. Not only does it have an insanely detailed chapter on disciples, but an absolutely brilliant leveling guide as well (see my review). I so wish I had gotten that when I first bought the game – it would have saved me a lot of time (which could have been used to improve the design of this blog instead :))

In Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, the player has the option to choose from four different classes, which include: Disciples of War, Disciples of Magic, Disciples of the Land, and Disciples of the Hand. Each class has its own unique set of skills that the player may pursue upon sufficient mastery within that class. All players begin the game as either a Disciple of War or a Disciple of Magic. As the game progresses and the player gains experience they may take up the other two classes to diversify their skills. Choosing the right adventuring style, or class, is as simple as changing the item that is in your possession. As the player gains even more experience they are capable of performing increasingly unique actions. Moreover, reaching a particular level of mastery within that class will unlock jobs, which contain even further specialization. Every fighting style and method of adventure is entirely up to the player.

ffxiv-disciplines

Disciples of War – These followers can dedicate themselves to mastering weapons along with the battles that are fought with them. The skills that these instruments of combat can choose from include the Gladiator, Pugilist, Marauder, Lancer, and Archer. Each of these disciplines allows the player to master a particular set of weapons and style of fighting.

Disciples of Magic – This path calls for those with a passion for constant study and expertise in sorcery of every form. Devotees adhere to artifacts in order to beckon forces within themselves to utilize spells in combat and reinforce those in need. The skills that this classification offers are the Conjurer, Thaumaturge, and Arcanist.

Disciples of the Land – This pathway permits the player to harvest nature’s abundant resources utilizing a large selection of tools. The player gains great knowledge and various skills to provide from the world’s resources to its inhabitants. These disciples can choose skills as a Miner, Botanist, and Fisher.

Disciples of the Hand – For players whose calling is creation and art, this discipline offers a vast array of tools to utilize in order to harness the crafter within them. Everything from the most elusive article of clothing to the utmost precious metal, these experts in craftsmanship can keep their culture alive through the art of synthesis. This discipline has the most skills to choose from out of all of the classes which include the Carpenter, Blacksmith, Armorer, Goldsmith, Leatherworker, Weaver, Alchemist, and Culinarian.

On the chance of repeating myself, this article is just a brief primer on disciples. Since the time of writing, I’ve found this guide. I recommend you head over and get yourself a copy as well. Not only does it have an insanely detailed chapter on disciples, but an absolutely brilliant leveling guide as well (see my review). I so wish I had gotten that when I first bought the game – it would have saved me a lot of time (which could have been used to improve the design of this blog instead :))

FFXIV A Realm Reborn General Quest Guide

Update: This article is just a brief primer on quests. Since the time of writing, I’ve found this guide. I recommend you head over and get yourself a copy as well. Not only does it have an insanely detailed chapter on quests, but an absolutely brilliant leveling guide as well (see my review). I so wish I had gotten that when I first bought the game – it would have saved me a lot of time (which could have been used to improve the design of this blog instead :))

As any veteran of MMORPG’s knows, quests are a means for accumulating experience points, currency and items through the completion of certain objectives. The instructions for completing quests often come from NPC’s, or Non-Player Characters, who act as residents of a town or outpost. Typically, these NPC’s have an icon over them to indicate that they have a quest to offer, and the icon is green if a player has a sufficiently advanced level to initiate the quest. The background is red when they do not.

Story Quests

These are the quests given by major characters in the story. They have a unique icon that resembles an exclamation point surrounded by flames. These quests involve accomplishing major objectives that influence the events of the game world. Typically, there is extensive character interaction with the residents of the world, and the player learns more about the perils facing Eorzea by completing them. Completion also allows players to access more expansive parts of the game as they progress through the story.

Side Quests

The icons that represent these quests are simply exclamation marks set against a circular background. They allow a player to interact with more minor residents of the local area, and to complete tasks that result in experience points and currency rewards. While they are not required to complete, they offer players an opportunity to gain experience at a rapid rate, and are often entertaining.

Guildleves

Guildleves are a unique type of quest. They require visiting NPCs that are marked with “levemete” underneath their name. These NPCs are found at outposts all over the world. Every day, a player is allowed to take three guildleves. These allowances stack up to 100 total guildleves allowed.

After accepting a guildleve from the NPC, the player must go into their quest journal and accept the task. While doing so, the player has the option to increase the difficulty and attempt to receive a greater reward. When this process is complete, the target will be marked on the player’s map with a silver card icon. This is the objective that the player must reach in the time allowed.

While this is the protocol for battlecraft leves, there are also leves available for disciples of the hand and disciples of the land jobs as well. These involve gaining a certain amount of materials for gathering jobs, or creating a specific item for crafting professions. The rewards for all types of leves are significant, and provide an efficient means for players looking to increase their job level.

Guildhests

By locating NPCs marked as “battlewarden,” players can participate in small scale initiatives that require a group of players. Like other quests, they have an objective that must be completed. Much like duty finder, parties will be formed and players transported to the objective location when the party is complete. However, the monsters and tasks required to complete a guildhest require much more teamwork and effort than the individual quests.

On the chance of repeating myself, this article is just a brief primer on quests. Since the time of writing, I’ve found this guide. I recommend you head over and get yourself a copy as well. Not only does it have an insanely detailed chapter on quests, but an absolutely brilliant leveling guide as well (see my review). I so wish I had gotten that when I first bought the game – it would have saved me a lot of time (which could have been used to improve the design of this blog instead :))

FFXIV A Realm Reborn Leveling Tips From 11-20

Update: This article is just a brief primer on leveling. Since the time of writing, I’ve found this guide. I recommend you head over and get yourself a copy as well. Not only does it have an insanely detailed chapter on leveling, but an absolutely brilliant leveling guide as well (see my review). I so wish I had gotten that when I first bought the game – it would have saved me a lot of time (which could have been used to improve the design of this blog instead :))

After a player has reached level 10 on their Disciple of War or Magic job, options for leveling up become much more diverse. That said, similar principles to the 1-10 progression apply. Players should continue to complete quests, which will lead them to new quest areas. FATE’s should be done when convenient to do so. However, if this is a first job, completion of the storyline quests is a priority. By simply going where the quest lines direct, players are introduced to their first encounter with the game’s dungeon system. These experiences give a tremendous amount of experience, and also offer opportunities for much improved gear.

FF14 Gameplay

Dungeons and Duty Finder

There are three dungeons that assist in leveling in this range. The first is Sastasha Seagrot near Limsa Lominsa in Western La Noscea. This is tuned for character levels 15-17, though level sync allows higher level players to participate and gain experience as well. The next dungeon is Tam-Tara Deepcroft,in Central Shroud near New Gridania. This is for levels 16-18. The final dungeon is Copperbell Mines in Western Thanalan near Ul’Dah. The optimum levels for this dungeon are 17-19.

For first time explorers, the storyline quests will direct them to travel to the dungeon. When this happens, there is an NPC at the entrance that needs to be spoken with. After completion of that, the dungeon is unlocked for duty finder use. That means players can select their intended dungeon, and the game will form a party for them and indicate when it is time to enter.

The experience bonus to monster kills in dungeons is significant, and completing the dungeons will also complete portions of a job’s hunting log for even more experience. This makes these dungeons a fantastic source of experience points and gear, even for players who have already completed the associated storyline quests. Most players will queue for a dungeon while completing other tasks during their wait time.

Levequests

Leves continue to be a good way to level up, and players can utilize the NPC’s in Western La Noscea, Central Shroud, or Western Thanalan for appropriate leveled leves. The speed bonus for completing a levequest is almost as significant as the bonus for raising the quest to maximum difficulty. Therefore, soloing levequests at low difficulties for speed is efficient, particularly if a player has a high allowance of levequests built up.

On the chance of repeating myself, this article is just a brief primer on leveling. Since the time of writing, I’ve found this guide. I recommend you head over and get yourself a copy as well. Not only does it have an insanely detailed chapter on leveling, but an absolutely brilliant leveling guide as well (see my review).
