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!
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: How to Get Evolution Stones
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet also have the mechanics of Evolvement of the Pokemons that are very necessary at some point in the game. Evolving Pokemons will increase their stat as well as their level which will then deal great damage to other Pokemons in the battles. One of the main items required for the Evolvement of Pokemons is the Evolution Stones. There are different types of Evolution Stones in the game and players can use them to evolve a specific species of Pokemon.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to get the Evolution Stones in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
Getting Evolution Stones
There are many types of Evolution Stones in the game and almost all of them require specific progress in the story of the game to get them. There are 10 different Evolution Stones that you can find in the game but most of them can be found in one place if you have progressed enough in the story. The safe point for you to progress in the story to get all the important Evolution Stones is to get 3 Gym Badges.
Gym Badges can only be obtained by defeating the Gym Leaders in the Victory Road Path. You will need to explore and find the new cities and then defeat the Gym Leader of their city. There is one Gym Building in every major city of the game that you have to discover and then pass their Gym Test to challenge their Leader. After defeating the Gym Leader, you will get the respective Gym Badge. As there is not any specific order to play the game so you can defeat any three gym leaders to get three gym badges.
Once you have obtained three Gym Badges, you will unlock some specific Battle Items in Delibird Presents Shops. These Delibird Presents Shops are available in every major city and town of Paldea so go to any Delibird Shop and view the Battle Items. In the Battle Items, you will see the following Evolution Stones ready to be bought.
- Fire Stone
- Thunder Stone
- Leaf Stone
- Water Stone
All four of these stones are Evolution Stones and they are used to evolve specific species of Pokemon. If you have particular Pokemon in your team and if you use the respective stone on the Pokemon then that Pokemon will evolve into a new shape. You can get all four of these Evolution Stones for a total of 12,000 Poke Coins. Each Stone costs 3,000 Poke Coins which is relatively cheaper than the Auction.
You can also find these stones out in the wild but if you don’t want to specifically look out for them then you can just go to the shop and buy them to use on your Pokemon. However, if you like to place a bid in the auction then you can do that as well but it would be expensive because you will have to outbid all of the opponents. Either way, you will be able to get these stones and start evolving your Pokemon.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: How to Get Koraidon and Miraidon in a Single Game
As Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are two different games and both of these games have exclusive legendary Pokemon. One of the legendary Pokemon that is given to players as a mount is either Koraidon or Miraidon, depending on which version of Pokemon are you playing. But there is a way to get both of the legendary Pokemon in a single version.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to get Koraidon and Miraidon in a single game of Pokemon Scarlet or Pokemon Violet.
Getting Koraidon and Miraidon
So, the players who are playing any version of the game would know that they get a legendary Pokemon in the Prologue of the game that your character uses as a Mount to get from one place to the other quickly. The Players who are playing the Pokemon Violet will have Miraidon and the players who are playing Pokemon Scarlet will have Koraidon.
Now, in order to get both of the Legendary Pokemon in a single game, you will have to complete the game. Finish all the paths of the game, and let the credits roll out. Once you have completed the game, you need to return back to the Black Crater where you went into the time mission at the end of the game. Once you are at the Black Crater, you need to go to the right side of the Time Machine and you will reach a wall.
Climb up the wall and go over the large crystal. Go straight and up on the rocky path to find the same Legendary Pokemon that you have. If you are playing the Scarlet then you will find Koraidon on top of the rocky path and if you are playing the Violet then you will find Miraidon on top of the rocky path.
Since these two are the last Pokemon in the Pokedex and they both are level 72 so it would be hard to catch them so, if you have not used the Master Ball yet, then this is the time to use it. If you want to take them out by yourself then you can do that as well. After getting the same Legendary Pokemon, you need to make a trade with another player who has the other legendary Pokemon.
In order to make the trade, you need to use the specific link code for the trade of Legendary Pokemon. Go to the Poke Portal then select the Link Trade option. Select the Set Link Code option and enter the following code.
0400 0399 or 0399 0400
Now, the reason why you want to enter this code in the link code is that the Koraidon Pokedex code is 399 and the Miraidon Pokedex code is 400 so, the players who only want to trade these Legendary Pokemon will use these codes and when you enter any one of the code, you will get to trade your Legendary Pokemon with the other player’s Legendary Pokemon and you will have both Kiraidon and Miraidon in a single game.
