Guide to Leveling in FFXIV

Level 1 - 8

Hunting Log

Level 8 - 10

Random fates in a starter area.

Level 10 - 13

Hunting Log

Level 13 - 20

Fates in Aleport

Level 20 - 22

Hunt Log (Ask a friend, free company or stranger for help to finish it becuase some of these mobs are challanging to solo.)

Level 22 - 28

Leves in Quarrymill, Two in particular. A level 20 one that involves collecting traps and a level 25 one that involves collecting water. Neither require killing so you can turn it up to max level.

Level 28 - 34

Leves in Costa Del Sol. There are three easy Leves that are faster and offer more XP than fates. Out to Sea, which involves click 5 items, no combat. Necrolopis, which you can do with only having to kill one monster and Culling the Herd which involves killing five monsters. The goal is to do Out to sea as much as you can, if its not available, do Necolopis, if that's not available do Culling the herd as a last resort. If Cancer spawns, join a fate group and do that.

Level 34 - 42

Fates in Central Coerthas Highlands

Level 42 - 50

Fates in North Thanalan. I recommend waiting until level 42 before heading here.

Level 44 - 48

DD first room runs if you can create a premade party. Ideal setup: Dark Knight, Astrologian, Summoner, Machinist.

Level 50 - 55

Fates in Western Coerthas Highlands.

Level 53 - 55

Farm Sohm Al dungeon

Level 55 - 58

Fates in Churning Mist.

Level 55 - 57

Farm The Aery dungeon

Level 58 - 60

Fates in Dravanian Hinterlands

Level 57 - 59

Farm the The Vault dungeon

Level 59 - 60

Farm Great Gubal Library dungeon

Challenge Log

Be sure to unlock and do the challenge log each week. Its essentially a free level or two. The challenges experience reward scale on your level, so its best to use them 30+ in my opinion.

Added Notes

On a side note. I highly recommend using dungeons to level 53+ and doing an occasional dungeon or two every 5 or 10 levels so you have an idea on how to play your class. I can't stand it when I get someone in a party post level 40 who has no idea how to play their class well.
