How to Level Up

Starting Out

When you first start out, you’ll spawn on a beach. What you wanna do is complete all the tutorial quests on the beach and head into your first town. If you’re playing with a friend you might want to go to his town if you’re playing on playing together.

When you get to the town there’s gonna be a few quests. Do those tutorial quests and the game will ask you to choose a faction. Choose whichever one you want. Keep in mind that the faction you choose will affect what companies( clans or guild) you can join. If you’re Covenant you can only join Covenant companies.

By now you should be around level 10.

To level up, you can do town missions or factions quests.

I recommend doing factions quests if you want to be ahead of everyone else. You can go to your faction and take all the quests. Remember to take all the side quests in the town too. When you’re done with those quests you can kill yourself to fast travel and save time. Keep doing this until your level 20. You have to repeat taking faction quests and town quests.

Level 20 – 30

If you’ve reached level 20 you can now do corrupted portals.

I recommend getting 3 or more people in your party and then roaming the map clearing out these portals. They will not only give you XP but also good items.

Around level 20 you the main quest will make you go to the Armine excavation which is a dungeon. I recommend not doing that until you reach level 23 or higher because the dungeon quest will be available once you’re level 23 or higher. You also need a key to enter the dungeon. What I recommend is forming a party with people who need to finish the quest and doing the dungeon multiple times because it’s very good XP. Don’t forget to take the quest from the dog outside before you start.

Keep doing corrupted portals, faction quests and town quests until you reach level 30.

Level 30 to Endgame

By now you have a pretty good idea of how to level up. This is the most grindy part of leveling up. To reach level 60 the fastest, I recommend you first do level 35 corrupted portals until you reach level 35. Then go to a level 40 town. There do town quests and faction quests until you reach level 40. Then you go do level 45 corrupted portals. You get the idea. Keep repeating until you reach the endgame. Good luck and see you in the New World.

I love games and I live games. Video games are my passion, my hobby and my job. My experience with games started back in 1994 with the Metal Mutant game on ZX Spectrum computer. And since then, I’ve been playing on anything from consoles, to mobile devices. My first official job in the game industry started back in 2005, and I'm still doing what I love to do.


  1. It’s nice that you do this but man I wish people would just take a step back and enjoy the game as they play it. This race to the finish and grind as hard and as fast as humanly possible only ruins games and no one likes a one-man sweatshop. You know?

  2. After playing the open beta today, it appears they have significantly slowed down the leveling by increasing the time it take to do many things, one of which is the use of specials on weapons. Most have a longer cool down.
    Also the time to gather resources has been increased. So this guide, while helpful, will not be as fast.

  3. I agree with what Seeker has said, thank you for taking the time to make a guide for people. You’re right, people can enjoy playing the game in anyway, and for some people, reaching max level quickly or finding efficient leveling methods are the most rewarding.

  4. Hey bro I just wanted to thank you for this guide. I am a former BDO player, so it really helped to have a guide that helps me shift gears between games. Lookin forward to future guides!

  5. Sounds good, thanks for the tips, I used to trust 😀 Maybe add a ‘extra info section’ where you can include information like that 😀

  6. Yes end game seems boring but author wrote this to guide 1-60 lol. He is not one who is making game or content lol. Endgame is whatever amazon games decides to add to game don’t blame some random dude who has nothing to do with developers.
