10 -> 20
Western La Noscea (Aleport)
Go with WHM friend. Do not join party. Have them keep Regen on you. You tag mobs for exp credit and they will aggro the healer, then the healer can Holy spam them to death. Recommend alternating between Goblins and Puks at (26, 22).
6
Eastern Thanalan (Highbridge)
^ Same method as above, but you can also do this on Phurbles in Eastern Thanalan. They are lvl 25 so they hit a bit harder. Recommend going after at least lvl 15 unless you have a very attentive WHM friend.

Use max difficulty. Pick up eggs, ignore all mobs that spawn. They run and attack slowly. If this quest isn't available, do Black Market Down on the lowest difficulty as fast as you can until Adamantoise Tears is available again.5,9285,92831

Additional Comments:
28
*For levequests where you have to pick up items to turn in, just pick up the items and ignore any mobs that spawn. If you do it fast enough, you should be able to complete them before you take too much damage or die. Just spam click on the pickup items if you are being interrupted by mobs hitting you.
29
**For 'Have a nice trip', and other leves that have you 'uncover' mobs, don't bother actually obtaining or using the item. Just run around hitting each mob with a ranged attack. Your mark will uncover as soon as you damage it. So run around, hit all mobs to uncover your marks and leash them. Then just go back and kill the mobs you actually need. Super easy.
30
***For 'explore the locations', just sit on one until you 'feel something', then run to the next area and wait for the text. Then kill the first mob followed by the second. You don't need to continue to stand on the spot to have investigated the area, it'll do that on it's own after you kill the mobs.
31
****Once you are 5 or 6 levels above a levequest's level, you will only get half experience reward.

Alternate Leveling Tips:
34
1Guildhests give bonus experience for the first time you complete each one, and also daily bonus. You can get this bonus twice by doing it as the CLASS and again as the JOB (e.g. lancer and dragoon). You get the bonus for every class/job you do it as.
35
2Hunting log gives bonus experience for each class.
36
3Weekly challenge log. Too many sources of bonus experience to list them all, but you get bonus experience for doing a certain number of dungeons per week so that is an easy one. You can unlock the challenge log at Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks - The Drowning Wench (11, 10) with NPC I'tolwann at lvl 15 (once unlocked, it is unlocked for all classes, even at lvl 1). Challenge Log rewards are scaled to your level. If you wait until later in the week to do them you can get a lot more EXP from them if you have been leveling up throughout the week and are then a higher level.
37
4Low level duty roulette gives bonus experience once per day. This is unlocked once you have completed two dungeons under level 50 (level 16 at the soonest for Sastasha + Tam-Tara).
38
5Eating any kind of food gives a 3% experience bonus.
39
6Participate in FATEs. Generally, the best areas are: 1-10 Central Shroud/Middle La Noscea, 10-20 Western La Noscea, 20-25 South Shroud, 25-35 Eastern La Noscea, 35-45 Central Coerthas, 45-50 Central Coerthas/Northern Thanalan/Mor Dhona
40
7Always log out in a sanctuary to build rested experience bonus. When you are in a sanctuary (usually near aetherytes) a crescent moon will appear to the right of your experience bar.
41
8At level 45+ you can do beast tribe quests for a little extra experience.
42
9Palace of the Dead will give you decent experience as well. In my opinion, it's about the same as spamming dungeons if you have long queue times (i.e. if you're a DPS).
