Thomas' Basic Leveling Guide
Prontera field 1
Kill any mob on the map
Payon Dungeon 1
Kill any mob on the map
41 - 56
You can easy access the eden HQ by using @go 37 or @go eden
Speak with Secretary Lime Evenor to join the Eden group
Go to the Mission [41 - 55] quest board
Accept any quests that you can manage to finish
I suggest either Thara Frog Hunting or Orc Warrior Hunting
Repeat this quest until level 56
56 - 71
I suggest doing either:
Mission numbers 1~5 -> What is this Bandage?
Kill 30 mummies and turn in 30 rotten bandages
Mission numbers 11~15 -> Dangerous Munaks
Kill 30 Munaks
Repeat until level 71
71 - 86
I recommend taking two quests at once
Glast Heim -> Evil Druid
Glast Heim -> Wraith
86 - 91
Other Regions -> Ground Petite
91 - 99
Glast Heim -> Dark Priest
Reborn and do the same route from 1-99. You can do the same missions over and over without worrying about the cooldown timer.
Some people like to hold onto their quest, and just grind the mobs, so when you reborn, you can just talk to the NPCs and level up immediately by turning in your old quests.
Level 100 - 111
Monsters are now easily clustered into groups in the same areas. Depending on your level and comfortability with your class, you can choose any quests on this board.
It's suggested that you accept quests for all available monsters on the map.
For characters who can mob easily, like ranger, the magma dungon mobs are recommended, however, if you have trouble fighting so many at once, Ice cave monsters are also very good.
111 - 121
Similar to 100 - 111, just pick what you're comfortable with.
Raydrics, Khalitzburgs and KH dungeon mobs are typically pretty easy.
121 - 141
The difficulty ramps up here.
If you have access to holy skills and/or weapons, I suggest taking Ragged zombie and zombie slaughter until you can comfortably kill the biolab 2 mobs.
The biolab 2 mobs:
Ygnizem Rawrel Armaia Kavach
All give more EXP than the other monsters on this board. So switch to them as soon as you're able to.
If you're having difficulty, you can always farm the quests on lower level boards like 111+
There is no level cap on them.
141 - 151
The difficulty winds down quite a bit here. The biggest hurdle is over.
Pick two quests at a time. The following pairs are on the same map.
Pick R.Combat Basilisk and Jungle Mandragora
G.Combat Basilisk and Fruits Pom spider
151 - 175
The Leveling Dungeon!
The leveling dungeon is a custom dungeon filled with PAD collab monsters with custom stats.
The first floor mobs you can skip for now. However if you're a blacksmith class or alchemist class, it's recommended to find the "Intriguing merchant" NPC so you can get a free recipe book.
Grab any and/or all quests for this dungeon right at the entrance for the second floor. Be careful though, these monsters are a bit strong. It's recommended to fight the ones that you can hit with
an elemental weakness.
Do remember, you can still take the 141+ quests if you're struggling with the mobs.
From here, things slow down a little bit. Here are a few options:
start grinding for equipment and leveling off the EXP earned from those mobs
spam leveling dungeon quests
any of the new dungeons. (Magma 3, Glastheim abyss, Einbroch 3, Odin's past, or Abyss Lake 4)
Killing lesser MVPS like Eddga, Garm, Phreeoni etc is also a very good source of EXP if you can handle them.
Keep doing and turning in those quests until you hit max level, or killing those MVPs and you're done the level grind!
There are many other ways to level, but this is the path that I typically take.
