How To Level Up & Get EXP Fast
Use Military Training Camp
You can raise character's level up by spending rupees in the Military Training Camp. You can only raise the level of your character to the same level as your highest level character. To unlock this facility, you need to clear the quest Entrance Test.Check Out The List Of Services & How To Unlock From Here
Equip Weapons With EXP Bonus Seal
You can increase the amount of Battle EXP you earn by equipping a weapon with a Battle EXP Seal. Make sure you equip this weapon before starting a mission, as you can't change in the middle!
Complete Challenges Multiple Times For Fast Leveling
If you're looking to level up 1 character fast, Challenges are the most time efficient ways to do so. Challenges can be farmed over and over again in 3~5 minutes to provide EXP for characters that participate.Check Out A List Of Challenges & Rewards Here!
Farm "Explosive-Handle With Care" Early On
The Challenge "Explosive-Handle With Care" requires the player to defeat 500 enemies to complete. Thanks to the Explosive Barrels littering the map, this challenge can be completed in less than 4 minutes. Farm this challenge early on to get a boost in Levels fast!
Challenges Provide EXP To 1 Character Only
Challenges provide EXP to only the character that was used to complete the challenge. All other characters in your party will not get any of the EXP. Try to level up your party equally or you might be in for a surprise when an underleveled character is needed for a main story quest.Check Out A List Of Characters Here!
Minimal Items Gained From Challenge
Most Challenges provide a First-Clear reward only, meaning that after the first completion of a challenge, EXP and items dropped by enemies are all you'll get from that challenge. Strike a balance between acquiring items, materials and EXP for the best power-up results.
Change Difficulty To Easy Before Challenging
The amount of EXP you gain won't be affected by your difficulty. Change your difficulty to Easy before starting the challenge to earn EXP fast. You can always raise the difficulty back up when you're looking for a challenge.
Quitting Will Result In No EXP
If for any reason you quit a mission or challenge before completion, all EXP is forfeit. Don't start a mission or a challenge if you don't have the time to finish it or you'll get nothing out of the encounter!
Battle Records Results Don't Matter For Exp
Based on our testing so far, getting higher/better Battle Records on a given challenge or main quest has a negligible impact on your EXP earned at the end of the quest. It is more efficient to meet the bare minimum completion requirements and go back to farming than to aim for a high score.
Try To Take Down As Many Enemies As Possible
Though battle performance doesn't impact your EXP gained, the amount of enemies defeated will. Unless the enemies are too tough for you, try to use combos, terrain items and special powers to bring down as many mobs as you can for more chunks of EXP to level up.
Completing Main Story Is Also Recommended
We recommend doing Main story quests because after a successful completion, all participants of the chapter will gain a fixed amount of experience. However, as story quests take 3x the amount of time to complete as challenges, we advise sticking to challenges unless you need some key items.Check Out The Story Walkthrough Here!
What Happens When You Level Up?
Increase In Power & Capability
When your character levels up, it gets better stats and can tackle harder & more challenging stages. Getting higher levels may also unlock new content & challenges that are locked behind a level wall, so try to level up when you can!
Pay Attention To Recommended Level
Each mission & challenge will have a recommended level when it should be undertaken. Use this as reference on whether or not you should try the challenge so as to not get overwhelmed, especially on harder difficulties.
