When it comes to moonlighting in Final Fantasy XIV, many players get lost because they don’t know how to level up gatherers to level 80, which is normal given the breadth of the game.
If you are tired of fighting or have everything maxed out and are waiting for Endwalker to bring you the Sage and the Reaper, it is a very good idea to raise the remaining levels of the non-combative jobs. Today we are going to see what you can do to max out your Miner, Botanist, and Fisher. Of course, due to the particularities of each job, the last one will go separately.
How to raise Botanist and Miner to level 80 in Final Fantasy XIV
The truth is that, although the options for leveling are very, very wide, tackling these jobs has a fairly easy path to follow to the top, making this part of the guide only divided between sections of level 1 to 10 and 10 until 80.
The first ten are going to be pretty easy and quick. Your task will be, as you did when uploading crafters, to look at the log. In this case, yes, it is the Gathering Log. All you have to do is get each material for the first time to earn an extra experience bonus. This, along with doing the class quests for each guild, will get you up to level 10 very quickly.
From here, it’s time to go back to a familiar place. As I already mentioned in the guide on crafters, Firmament, in Ishgard, also houses Diadem, a place where you can level up very, very quickly by collecting materials that will later be used by the crafters themselves. To be able to enter, it is as easy as having reached level 10 and unlocked Firmament (that is, having finished Heavensward) and approaching the NPC Aurvael (x10.8 and14.0). Once inside, the trick is to use the nodes with circles that you see on the maps below and move counter-clockwise. This will give you a lot of experience (especially in the beginning, you will notice a colossal increase), yes, but is there anything else you can do to get even more EXP?
Well yes, there is! Starting with the basics, the Free Company Earth and Water buff will give you 5% (10% in version 2) of free experience for the next 24 hours. In addition to that, there are the Survival Manuals, which you can acquire from your Grand Company (Maelstorm, Twin Adders, and Immortal Flames) and which will grant you a large amount of extra EXP. Keep in mind that in order to get them you will need Company Seals, which you can obtain by doing FATEs, delivering Expert Deliveries or through the leveling roulette.
On the other hand, there are advanced Survival Manuals that will be a bit more difficult to come by. For these, you will have to have reached Idyllshire in Heavensward, be at least level 60 with a crafter and gatherer, and finish the Inscrutable Tastes questline, which starts at level 60 in Mor Dohna. This will lead you to unlock the Custom Deliveries, 12 weekly orders (which you will have to divide at least between 6 NPCs) and that will give you experience, money, and Scrips.
The latter is the currency of crafters and gatherers and will be what you use in Firmament to be able to get advanced manuals. Keep in mind that you will need Yellow Gatherer Scrips for this , so you will have to do your custom deliveries with a gatherer and not with a crafter. Still, in the long run, it is advisable to do these assignments every week with both roles in order to access the succulent rewards (materials, equipment, recipes, subjects, etc.). Total, that in the end, you can get levels and manuals at the same time.
In this way, if you put together your daily tribe quests, your weekly custom deliveries, and your long periods of Diadem, you will be able to upload Miner and Botanist at a very fast pace, even if it is a bit monotonous.
How to get Fisher to level 80 in Final Fantasy XIV
The case of the fisherman is somewhat different because it is not Diadem where he will get maxed but in Limsa Lominsa. This time you get rid of getting the first ten levels with logs and missions (although it is convenient not to miss the latter), but you will have directly to Ocean Fishing. Doesn’t that sound like anything to you? Normal, it is something that only fishermen do, but it is the best way to level up.
The thing is easy: every two hours (at odd times if you live in the Iberian Peninsula), a boat will set sail from the port of Limsa Lominsa (Arcanist’s Guild aeterite). There you will have to talk to Dryskthota (x3.0 y12.7) and sign up. Once you enter the queue, you will be with a group of 23 passionate about fishing. Buy the baits that the NPC who acts as a shop on board the cruise ship is going to sell you and go fishing!
Do not get scratched if you do not know which bait to use, as most likely one person in the group will be commenting on which ones to use. The Ocean Fishing bait system is a bit complicated (it depends on the route the boat is taking and the time it arrives in each area), so there is always a tradition of helping the newest. On the other hand, keep in mind that the Survival Manuals that I have already spoken about also serve here, and will be one of your greatest allies.
Don’t forget the Tribe Quests!
While gatherers work a bit differently from each other, there is one constant that you will need to keep in mind. Tribe Quests, just like crafters, can give you quite a boost . It depends on which rod you put in, you might not even need this with Fisher (I uploaded it using only Ocean Fishing over the 3 very unoccupied days I had), but they will be a great help to Miner and Botanist.
In this case, you will have to return to the Namazu (located in the Azim Steppe, in the Droh Illoh aetherite) from level 60, while the Qitari ( who reside in the Rak’tika Greatwood x37.2 and 17.1 ) will be the ones who will assist you to get from level 70 to 80. Remember that you can do 3 missions with each of the tribes a day. Don’t miss out!
V Rising: Best Axes Build for both PvP and PvE
V Rising has in-depth Character customization including weapons and magic spells as well. In this guide, we have made an extremely OP build for both PvP and PvE game modes. This build is made using Axes weapons. This build also suits the playstyle in countering actual players as well as bandits and different animals or monsters you counter in V Rising. PvP is also really good using these axes build. If you don’t have many friends and you’re a solo player, this build is the best build in terms of solo grinding. The complete build counters both healing and combat making this build really good.
This build will completely tell you all the Weapons abilities, Magic abilities, and the blood type used with the build.
We have used axes in this build and there are a bunch of weapon abilities used with it as well. The Axes we are using are the Dark Silver Axes with a gear level of 21. The weapon abilities you want to put on the axes are the following.
- Primary Attack: It performs a combo attack and deals 45% – 55% physical damage.
- Frenzy: This ability will add more mobility and you dash forward while hitting. The first enemy will get hit with 100% physical damage. The movement speed will increase by 25%.
- X-Strike: These are the blades that you throw towards the enemies and it boomerangs back to you. It’s each hot with the blade will deal 85% physical damage.
- Veil of Chaos: In terms of mobility, you want to have this ability because it works best with the frenzy ability. When you dash into the enemies with the frenzy ability, you can dash out with the veil of chaos and leave an illusion of yours behind and after a couple of seconds, the illusion will explode, dealing more damage to the enemies. The explosion will deal 50% magic damage to enemies.
The magic abilities are also very important in the V Rising especially in the PvP because you want to make more plays with your teammates and you do want to use the magic in the fight to gain the benefits. The magic abilities that you want to have in this build are the following.
- Purgatory: It creates a pillar that slows enemies and heals the allies and yourself. It deals 75% of magic damage to enemies.
- Sanguine Coil: It gives you a range attack ability so you can attack from far. The projectile launch at enemies will deal 75% magic damage.
- Crimson Beam: It is also for the ranged attack, a beam will be struck in a direction and you can hold it for 4 seconds. The beam will deal 150% magic damage to enemies.
Now the Blood Type is also very important in the build because the blood type will improve certain abilities of your character. The Blood type you want to use for this build is Brute. The Brute Blood type will give you the following increments.
- 7.5% – 12.5% Primary Attack life leech.
- 7.5% – 15% Increased Primary attack speed and gain 1 gear level.
- Healing received increased by 20% – 35%.
Now with these increments all of your abilities that heal allies and yourself, will be amplified to 20% – 35%. Even your primary attack will give you life leech meaning healing you while you are hitting the enemies. All the magic abilities heal your allies and yourself so, their healing stats will also increase with this blood type.
V Rising: How to complete the Servants Quest
In V Rising, you can also make humans NPC your servants, it is a very good and useful mechanic to get resources and manage your Castle base. You don’t have to go for yourself to gather the required resources for the upgrades, you can just order your servants and they will do the rest of the work.
In this guide, we tell you how to complete the servant quest in V Rising tutorial.
How to Complete the Servants Quest
In order to complete the servant quest, you need to make a servant coffin. In order to make the servant coffin, you need to gather a couple of items that will be used in the crafting of the Servant Coffin. The items required to make the Servant Coffin are the following:
After getting both of the required materials, now you need to make the Servant Coffin. In order to make the servant Coffin, you should have 16 Planks, 8 Copper Ingots, and 1 Greater Blood Essence. If you don’t have these required resources then you need to get these resources first. You can make Copper Ingot in Tannery Structure and Plank in Sawmill structure.
After getting all the materials and resources, now you can make the Servant Coffin. Open the Production menu and select the Dominance section, you’ll see Servant Coffin there. Click on the Coffin and place it at your desired position in the Castle.
After that, you just need to escort any Human NPC inside the Servant Coffin and it will convert that human to your servant and then you can give him orders.
V Rising: How to get Greater Blood Essence in an easy way
V Rising game has the mechanics of recipes as well that your vampire can make in the Blood Press machine. This material is the stronger version of the regular Blood Essence that you get by feeding on different enemies or living things. In this guide, we tell you how to get the Greater Blood Essence in an easy way in the game.
Greater Blood Essence
Greater Blood Essence is a recipe that can be made in the Blood Press machine that you have to craft in your Castle base. After you’ve crafted the Blood Press you can make different recipes in it which’ll give you different benefits. The Greater Blood Essence works exactly the same as the regular Blood Essence but it has more efficiency.
You can use it to upgrade the Heart Castle, increase the fortified time of the castle, use it to turn humans into obedient servants, and use it to learn the sealed knowledge. In order to make 1 Greater Blood Essence, you’d need to have 150 Blood Essence and the Blood Press will combine the 150 Blood Essence into Greater Blood Essence.
How to Get Greater Blood Essence in Easy Way
The Greater Blood Essence is a high-level material and the first that you’d get this will be from the Tristan the Vampire Hunter Boss. You’d get this recipe by defeating him. That boss is 46 level and you have to be at least level 40 to defeat him. But there is also another easier way to make this recipe using items other than Blood Essence.
The way you can make this recipe is by getting the Unsullied Hearts. The unsullied Hearts are dropped by the mobs that have a little higher level than the regular mobs. You’d find these mobs in a different area of the map. You can recognize them by their level, if there is an enemy that has a higher level than the enemies around him that means he can drop you the unsullied heart.
Normally the bosses in Blood Altar can drop you the unsullied Hearts. Almost every boss will drop an unsullied heart and what you want to do is that you need to gather the unsullied hearts and bring them back to base to store them. Make sure that you do not consume it while you are low on health. Save these hearts for making the Greater Blood Essence when the recipe is unlocked.
The 4 unsullied Hearts would make 1 Greater Blood Essence and if you want to make it with the Blood Essence then it would cost 150 Blood Essence. That is the only reason to save the hearts so, you can make numbers of Greater Blood Essence material.
