FFXIV Hunting Log Guide

FFXIV Hunting Log Guides - Get started with your FF14 Logs

Welcome FF14 players to my current project: the FFXIV Hunting Log Guides. I am steadily going through each base class/job and providing guides for all the targets. These include helpful information on speedily getting to the right area and maps of whereabouts to find your doomed enemies. Naturally, these take time and as it is my second game, I’m doing what I can to add FFXIV posts and guides around other content. I’ve provided a summary on where I am at with all the classes and, where the guide is live, linked it straight through. As I add more, this page will grow also.

Thanks for your patience – and your support by visiting. Have fun!


What is the FFXIV Hunting Log?

If you’re a newer player, maybe recently joined the FFXIV Free Trial, then you may wonder what the Hunting Log is.

Class/Job Log

In short: each class/job you unlock has one. In it, you’ll find a list of enemies to defeat to better hone your combat skills. To clear a difficulty rank, you must defeat those enemies while fighting as the relevant class. As you clear each Difficulty Rank and level up, further ranks become available, up to Rank 5. They also provide you with a great source of EXP EXP.

Grand Company Log

Once you join a Grand Company (a necessary part of the ARR MSQ Main Scenario Quest), a separate part of your Hunting Log opens up. This is not limited by job or level. If you want to achieve some promotions within your GC, it will be necessary to clear levels of your Grand Company Log. Some of those targets are in dungeons, too. Lastly, unlike the class logs, the GC ones grant Seals instead of EXP.


Vote by Searching

This may seem odd, but the way I’ve figured out which class to do next was to look at how people used my site search. If loads of you search for a class and I have no pages to fulfil that, then that’s what I do. That’s why Thaumaturge was my second series. If you need particular help, search for it. If it returns no results, then I can see that as a virtual ‘vote’.

Resources for Other Classes

I don’t want to leave you wondering where to go next, especially if you’re looking for other classes. So here are the links to Console Games Wiki’s summary hunting logs.

Hopefully this is useful for you.

My main character as a lowbie Lancer/Dragoon

The Order

Just an FYI really, but I am finishing up the classes that start in Gridania at the moment. So Lancer is my current focus. Then I’ll complete the Ul’dah starters by adding Pugilist. That will leave me all of the Limsa classes, but certainly after Rank 2, many targets will be shared, making them quicker to do.

“Stay tuned”, I guess!


TL;DR Make Sure You Clear Your FFXIV Hunting Log

Though there’s no specific requirement or prerequisites fulfilled by completing your Hunting Log, it is a great source of EXP. And if you’re a newish player then it acquaints you really quickly as to the location of certain enemies. While I had thought to do PUG as my next series, it seems the Conjurer Hunting Log may well be next. Feel free to chat to me over on Twitter too, I’m no expert in all things FFXIV, but I do love the game and can usually point you to resources that’ll help too. Take care!
