Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker

Levelling Tips - Level 70 to 80

By
Sophia Hayes

This page will provide levelling tips and recommendations to maximise efficiency while levelling from 70 to 80 with the new Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker classes Reaper and Sage. However, please note these tips will also be useful for any player looking to level from 70 - 80 with any class.

Gear

For Reaper we recommend unlocking the full Augmented Scavean Maiming set which is item level 400.
For Sage we recommend unlocking the full Augmented Scavean Healing set which is item level 400.

These sets can be obtained by talking to Enna in Rhalgars Reach. If you don’t have enough Tomestones for these sets don’t worry. You will recieve item level 385 sets upon completion of the Sage and Reaper introduction quests which are almost as good!

EXP Buffs

  • Rest Exp (A buffer of +50% xp that you gain while being in a sanctuary.)
  • Menphinas Earings (30% experience buff below level 80)
  • Squadron Battle Manual (15% experience buff) or a Free Company Heat of Battle.
  • Food (3% experience buff)

Levelling from 70 to 71

Pixie Tribes

Pixie Tribe Quests in Il Mheg (X:12.4 Y:32.9) are very quick and provide approximatley 1/3 of a level for competing three and take only a few minutes to complete.

Main Story Quest Roulettes

Main Story Quest Roulettes are excellent ways to earn experience and quickly level in Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker.

Castrum and Praetorium are both excellent for experience but Praetorium is preferred as it offers much more experience!

Fate Grinding

You can also perfom Fates which grant good experience. Il Mheg and Lakeland are ideal fate grinding locations for players around level 70. Fates are worth approximatewly 97k experirence after the rebalancing. To get to 71 you will need 2,923,000 exp.

Fate farming in Il Mheg

Levelling from 71 to 80 in Zadnor

Like the Bozjan Southern Front, Zadnor is a instanced encounter wherein players assist the Bozjan Resistance. Completing Fates and Critical Engagements as part of a large group is an excellent way to earn tremendous experience in a relatively short amount of time. From our own experience it should take around 6 to 10 hours to level from 71 to 80 in Zadnor depending on the speed/efficiency of the group.

How to get the Zadnor

After reaching Level 71 players can travel to Zadnor. To get to Zadnor you must first travel to the Doman Enclave and then use the Aetheryte Crystal to travel to Gangos and then talk to Sjeros.

Fates in The The Northern Plateau

The general concept is to move in a triangle pattern around the Northern Plateau completing fates as they spawn.

Name Level XP Mettle

When Mages Rage The Northern Plateau (20.4-16.6) 80 525,000-861,000 256,500-283,500
With Diremite and Main The Southern Plateau (17.1-32.1) 80 1,187,500-1,947,500 350,000-525,000

Critical Engagements

Your party leader must queue for each Critical Engagment (CE) as they spawn. Note the Taking the Lyon’s Share Critical Engagement is Solo and does not grant EXP.

Name Level XP Mettle
Feeling the Burn The Northern Plateau (16.7-16.9) 80 1,312,500-2,152,500 607,500-675,000
Lean, Mean, Magitek Machines The Northern Plateau (15.3-13.1) 80 1,312,500-2,152,500 607,500-675,000
Looks to Die For The Northern Plateau (17.5-9.9) 80 1,312,500-2,152,500 607,500-675,000
Worn to a Shadow The Northern Plateau (11.9-7.7) 80 1,312,500-2,152,500 607,500-675,000

(1 of 3) Critical Engagements offer great exp

After reaching 80 be sure to check out the Job Quests for Reaper and Sage. The starting Job quests can be done at 70 but the latter ones will require higher levels.
