Ive gotten up to the part where i have to get on the airship as an envoy (havent actually traveled yet though) and decided to stay around the city and do all the sidequest, class quests and hunting logs I could find before leaving the city/starter areas.

After doing that I decided to work on a craft and noticed something. Are the only ways to level crafts via crafting logs and guildleves? I mean a craft class wouldnt be much use in a side quests due to their inability to fight. So crafts are only leveled though craft logs and guildleves right? or is there another way they can be leveled?

Also am i correct in guessing that hunting log ranks/levels unlock every 10 class levels?

Crafting log unlock every 5 levels (recipe).
You also get Supply and Provision from Grand Company which give both seals and good chunk of EXP.

I get a lot of seals (GC currency) via crafting, and the xp from them is pretty good too.

Remember to go for HQ with the leve items. A 1000xp leve can net you 3000 xp with a HQ item.

More quality = HQ %. If you fill the Quality bar it's 100%.

Except you need to watch out for Durability too, I had 78% HQ broke on me with just one more step because 90% success progress decided to fail.

You'll gain abilities as crafter that help you craft stuff better as you gain levels.

My advice is just craft one of each item and do some levequests and you'll be at lv 10 in like 15 minutes.
