I saw this guide while browsing for crafting strategy, and I have to say that although it's on a crafting bot site, it works really well for 'human players' too.

Code:
Requirement

1) 200k-300k of gil ( to buy all mats from market )

Or, you can just leveling your miner and get everything from your own, but it will take a lot longer time.

2)<blanked>for FFXIV:ARR, you can use the preset skill in version 1.0.1 with this guide

What to do?

BSM 1-4

- Buying Copper Ore x 2 stack , Tin Ore x 1 stack from NPC to make Bronze ingot
- Spam only 1 ( first skill) because no other skill to use yet
BSM 5-9

- using Bronze ingot from previous setp to craft Bronze Rivet
- you can use fire share from quest lv 1 ( 150 ) or 5 and safe some expense
- At level 5 you’ll get a basic touch skill. Use this skill 1-2 times before using standard synthesis to increase progress
- eat salt cod ( control + 4 ) for more quality
- After using all the bronze ingot, buy another stack of mat and make bronze ingot again
- then use that to make bronze rivet again
- With 2 stacks of Ingot->rivet loop, you can reach level 12 easily

** Can keep bronze rivet to finish quest too! ( level 10 quest )

** After you finish level 10 quest, you’ll need a lot of Bronze ingot to progress and get new recipe, so try to buy another stack of Mat for bronze ingot and try to do it again

- When craft another set of bronze ingot, maybe you’ll consider crafting something else
** Amateur’s Doming Hammer(11) = Bronze INgot x1 + Ash Lumber x1
** Spike Bronze Labrys (14) = Bronze ingot x 3 + Ash Lumber x1
- Can purchase Ash Lumber from NPC for 43 gil ( BSM Guild )
- Amaeur’s doming hammer got around 900-1000 exp per craft at level 12
- For almost 1 stack, you can get to level 15 with domming hammer recipe

Level 15

- After reach level 15 and finish class quest, now you can do Iron ingot.
- You can just go to market board and buy off it from market for faster leveling ( price depend on server )
- Buy around 3 stack ( for my server, 27 each ) of Iron ore so can craft for 99 times
- also, it’s a good idea to buy your equipment since new gears is level 15

** for 99 iron ingot, you can go from level 15 to level 18 easily

Level 18

- Since you got plenty of Iron ingot, it’s good to do Iron Rivet with that mat for easy craft
- with this method it can level up to 21 in just few min

Level 21

- You will get “Great stride” it’s very useful for increase quality and get more exp
- try to combo it with basic touch
- you might need to craft iron ingot again so you can use it for other recipe and get easy exp
- Next 99 iron ingot craft can boost to level 23

Level 23

- you can grind Iron ingot -> iron rivet again if you like. If you have other mat like Yew lumber you can try to do initiate’s Mortar for better exp ( but it costly )
- this level range is nothing to do much since some mat are expensive, better stick with Iron Ingot -> Rivet for a long while

Level 26

- If you have money, buy some Bombard Ash to make Steel Ingot, for 1 stack, you can reach around level 30

level 30

- With steel ingot, you can do steel rivet for a bit

Level 33

- You can try crafting mythril ingot since people selling Mythil ore with cheap price. But you need to use Ingenuity to decrease the Recipe revel to your current one. You’ll get tons of exp with this recipe.
- with making 99 mythril ingot, you can up your level from 33 to 38-40 without much effort

You can do that and get to lv 42 without much effort

Level 42-50

- You can grind with Cobalt Ore->Cobalt Ingot-> Cobalt Rivet to 50. Try to get maximum quality as possible to get a lot of exp.

I’m sorry for the bad English in this guide. I was just note it when I tried to level up my new char to lv 50 to test the bot performance. I put some preset skills in my bot 1.0.1 so you can choose the right skill for each level respectively.


Now this is all terribly inefficient isn't it, I hear you say. Well yes, it is; but consider this:

I don't have to worry about whether I have x item or y item to complete a levequest and level the craft. I need ore, and I need shards. That's it.

Less time wasted.

Edit: And to cap it off, when you get to Mythril, you dont need the ingots for anything else, so sell for profit!

I distinctly remember being sat outside the markets in Limsa Lominsa, just prior to your epiphany, exalting the virtues of ingots (steel, to be exact) and saying "Manually craft if you want to get mad EXP by using minimal materials but at the expense of time, and use Auto-craft if you want to get mad gil by obtaining massive amounts of ingots at the expense of EXP".

[/hipster_crafter]

But yes, while it is pretty much self explanatory for people who've started the game, as a newcomer to the game it is a massive help if someone says "You can turn a fat stack of just ONE SINGLE MATERIAL into a fat stack of EXP".

Obviously, for master crafters like us, the quest for HQ items is more linked to selling on the markets for gil than it is the EXP, although the EXP is a nice bonus, right? ;)

Which reminds me, I discovered another high-priced, fast-selling item to exploit tonight. Made around 10-15 HQ versions of it, selling them for 5000 gil a pop. Logged on this morning to discover I had just shy of 50k waiting for me. Tasty breakfast was tasty. :D
