The most recent patch notes for Final Fantasy 14: Endwalker, which details everything you need to know about the impending release of the latest expansion, Final Fantasy 14: Endwalker. Within the patch notes, house all the details you need to know with how to unlock the Reaper job. Wielding an enormous Scythe, you’d be mistaken if you thought the Reaper would be a magical-based class. Instead, the Reaper in FFXIV Endwalker is in a melee DPS role, meaning that this class will be excellent for dishing out lots of damage and wreaking havoc upon your enemies. The highly-anticipated expansion was delayed for two weeks, however, Endwalker early access begins on December 3, with a general release on December 10.

How to unlock the Reaper job in Final Fantasy 14

First off, you need to ensure that you have access to Final Fantasy 14: Endwalker, which is the latest expansion. After patch 6.0, a quest will appear in Ul’dah, and you’ll need to speak to the Flustered Attendant in order to start the quest where you will unlock the reaper named ‘The Killer Instinct’. Once you have the class unlocked, you will begin at level 70.

How to level up Reaper in Final Fantasy 14

Leveling up the Reaper in Final Fantasy 14 is about as easy as leveling up any other class in the game. The class begins at Level 70, meaning that you should already have access to the latest dungeons and raids, including the Bozjan Southern Front, where you can participate in FATEs alongside others to level up your resistance rank and gain a huge amount of XP while doing so. It’ll be a pretty speedy process getting the Reaper up to 80 in Bozja.

After level 80, you will need to then shift your priorities over to getting to level 90, which will be a much steeper curve. For this, ensure that whenever you log out that you are in an inn or a house, and you will earn a rested XP bonus. If you are in an FC, ask your FC leader to turn XP bonuses on. Then, be sure to do your daily roulettes. Level 80 Roulette in addition to Main Scenario and Levelling will net you a good amount of EXP each day, in addition to giving you tomestones that you’re able to exchange for useful items.
