The game has changed a lot in the past 6 months, so here is the latest levelling guide that I personally created and follow on my new alts.
THIS LEVELLING GUIDE IS NOT FOR THE FIRST TIME PLAYER.
Note that I am Team Level 54, which gives me 53% exp bonus. I am also a token user, hence I have 30% more exp.
This guide is most accurate when there is a EXP Bonus Event going on. That is to say, events that offer you 100% exp buff, fortune cookies, exp tomes, etc.
This guide also assumes that you have a main toon that has done a lot of map exploration, hence have plenty of exp cards right from the get go.
Basically, that is the best time to start and level a toon.
From the late level 260s onwards, there isn’t much choice but to do dungeons and missions. Grinding is not really viable unlike the early levels.
Once you reach rank 15, you can access team storage, grab silver from it and always buy pardoner buffs. As of this time of writing (Aug 2017), > 3k buffs are a thing of the past. That said, 2k buffs are still not bad and will allow you to one shot mobs for a long way.
RIP 5k buffs, you were super cool and fun to level alts with.
Levels 1 – 20
You should have attained level 20 by the time you arrive at Klaipedia from the starter quests. Otherwise just kill stuff.
Levels 20 – 35 Grinding
Nevelette Quarry / Mines / Nefritas Cliff
X-venter mobs (halloventer, necroventer, etc.) always give most exp. For some reason, on a same map with Venter mobs and other mobs, Venter mobs would always give 2-3 times more exp.
General rule of grinding for experience
- mobs should be giving > 1% exp each to be worth it.
- Be within 20 levels of the map/mobs.
Levels 35 – 40 Grinding
Tenet Church 1F. Tons of mobs, fast respawn, and killing Galoks give you a chance of Battle Bracelet (4mill on Telsiai as of August 2017). I got a Battle Bracelet drop on my 2nd Galok kill on my latest alt. #truestory
