The training locations listed below are for power leveling. Each section briefly describes the best places to kill large amounts of monsters to level the fastest for that level range.

In most cases you should only hunt monsters that you can kill within 1-2 hits. It is highly suggested that a player seeks the best exp giving monster he/she can one or two hit KO. A player can acquire more EXP in a short amount of time from numerous lower level enemies than one giant enemy. For example, you may be able to kill a monster in one hit that gives you 1/4 the experience of a monster that takes 16 hits. In the time it takes to kill four of the small monsters, you would have acquired as much experience as damaging the larger monster to 1/4 of its health. To maximize your experience gain and minimize the amount of time you have to spend killing monsters, you should pay attention to how much experience you gain from each enemy, and how long (how many hits) it takes to kill them. With each patch since Chaos, the standard for classes has been to give each one, even at first job, an attack that can hit multiple enemies. This has drastically sped up the leveling process.

Note: Level ranges are just a reference and need not be strictly followed.

  • Newer Accounts refer to usually the first few characters. Suggested paths will also tailor towards obtaining upgrade items while levelling up as they may not have sufficient resources to not rely on system handouts.
  • Subsequent characters refer to the other characters after the first few characters, as these characters tend to be way stronger before 4th job with the help of Fairy Blessing, Link Skills and Maple Legion.
