How to Farm Skill Levels Indefinitely

Farm Skill Levels Indefinitely Procedure

1Wait for a Free Time without any special events
2Choose to battle and select a map with a forest
3Before fighting, equip a rusted or broken weapon to the character you want to raise skill levels
4As soon as the battle starts, head to the forest, and draw aggression from the enemy
5Keep on skipping your turn
6Once your health is low, retreat to reset the fight

2. Forests Lower The Chance Of Getting Hit

Forests Lower The Chance of Getting Hit

It is required for you to choose a map that has a lot of Forest tiles in order to increase your evasion against enemy attacks. This way, you are less likely to get hit with a dangerous attack.

3. Equipped Weapon Corresponds To Skill Level

Make sure that the rusted or broken weapon you are equipping your unit corresponds to the Skill Level you are aiming to raise.

5. Enemy Attack's Hit Chance Is Lowered

Enemy Attack

Since you are in the forest, the enemy's attacks will have a higher chance of missing your unit. By doing this, you will be able to engage the enemy unit for longer, and if you do hit, you will not do so much damage.

Gain Skill Level XP Every Encounter With The Enemy

You will gain XP that increases Skill Levels whenever the enemy engages your unit. You gain this XP regardless if you hit the enemy or not.

6. Retreating Carries Over XP

Retreating Carries Over XP

Once your HP is in critical condition, choose to retreat by choosing that option in the battle menu. All of the XP you gained during that fight is carried over, and you can choose to restart the fight, and continue farming.

Improve Skill Levels By Lecturing

Your student's skill levels can easily be raised by lecturing them during the start of the week. It is easier to raise a particular skill level by instructing them manually, so set their skill goals, and focus on those skill levels to quickly raise them.

Set Only 1 Skill Goal To Gain 1.5x XP

When you manually set the skill goals to only one skill, you will immediately gain 1.5 times as much experience compared to when focusing on two skills. If you want to quickly raise a particular skill level, set that to the only goal of the student!
