Farm Skill Levels Indefinitely Procedure
|1||Wait for a Free Time without any special events|
|2||Choose to battle and select a map with a forest|
|3||Before fighting, equip a rusted or broken weapon to the character you want to raise skill levels|
|4||As soon as the battle starts, head to the forest, and draw aggression from the enemy|

2. 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
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
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.
How to Efficiently Raise Skill Level
【Top Priority】Restore the Saint Statues
You can then use the Renown earned from completing battles to restore the four Saint Statues in the Chapel. When restored, these statues will grant boosts to the rate at which your skill levels are raised!
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!Check Out How To Set Skill Goals Here!
Participate In Faculty Training (Byleth Only)
If you want to raise the skill level of the protagonist, you can participate in Faculty Training during your Free Times. Please take note that you can only train once per week with other professors & knights, and the XP gained is a set amount.
