Dungeons - Leveling

Leveling up your character in FFXIV: ARR can be achieved in a number of ways. From dynamic world events such as F.A.T.E.s to the standard questing system. One of the more interesting ways to level up, and perhaps the most efficient, is by doing dungeon runs.

Dungeons designed for leveling are quite different to those designed for raiding and this is why we decided to split the sections. A leveling dungeon is designed to get you a lot of EXP, they are not designed to challenge you too much, especially at early levels. A raid dungeon is more focused towards challenge difficult boss encounters.

The current list of leveling dungeons in FFXIV: ARR are below. All of them have a 90 minute time limit and are intended for parties of 4 people. They must be unlocked in order via a quest chain. If you are above the maximum level range you will be level synced down to the maximum level.

You are right Anonymous Jun 28th, I got them the wrong way around when compiling the list.

Anonymous Jun 10th I'm not sure, did you speak to the guy at the entrance? Maybe one of your party members wasn't ready for the quest.

I had visit Sastasha Seagrot with other 3 players party before, The quest log already told me I need to explore there. Just dunno why we can't enter it.

The Thousand Maws of Toto-Rak is in the South Shroud, not Central. And I think the Haukke Manor is in Central.
