One of the most popular Crafting jobs in Final Fantasy 14 is that of the Weaver. If this is the path you have chosen to follow on the game, you will be crafting the best light armor and accessories as you make your way to level 90. But before, you will need to master spell combos, grab quests that provide a generous amount of EXP, and gear your character up with the best equipment.

Up to the challenge? Well grab your needle and get off your Chocobo, because you will barely move a character inch in the following hours.

Weaver’s Guild: How To Get Started (1-11)

You might need to level up to accept Redolent Rose’s quests. It’s nothing some eating up and crafting won’t solve. So with that in mind, let's do some shopping. Crafting requires materials, and it is best if you get them early on.

Make sure your character is always well-fed to get a three percent EXP bonus. Any food will give you this bonus at this point in the game, but Marmot Steak is an easy to acquire dish, and Marmot Steak is an easy to acquire dish.
