Tales of Arise – How to Level Up Fast (Tips)

Looking to gather experience points as quickly as possible in Tales of Arise? Then these tips will help.

Levelling Tips

EXP & SP

Before beginning, it’s important to know how leveling up works in Tales of Arise. Characters can improve themselves in the normal RPG ways. Fight battles and gain experience points. Leveling up then will boost all stats on a single character. It’s also important to note that even if a character isn’t in the battle party, everyone still gets experience.

The other way to improve characters, besides equipment as an extra side note, is through the skills menu. SP, or Skill Points, can be used to unlock stat boosts as well as new moves. One of the most important skills to unlock right away is the one that can defy death. This grid can also unlock new Artes. SP is gained a little by fighting but it is mostly gathered through side quests so don’t ignore those.

Eat The Proper Food

There are a few ways to improve how much experience points are gained in the field. Like other modern RPGs, Tales of Arise features a food system. It’s a trait that actually precedes many modern RPGs as this has been a standard in the Tales series for ages now. The world is a pretty open place and it can sometimes take a while to get to an Inn so that the party can replenish their health.

That’s why the developers put in Campsites. It is here where players can make food to temporarily boost stats as well as test their weary bones. The Fruit Sandwich, for example, can boost experience gained. The Fruit Sandwich is one of the more important early recipes to utilize if one wants to grind, even if the idea of a white bread sandwich with fruit is not, in reality, appealing.

Before farming XP, make sure to cook XP+ Boost food. Leaf-Wrapped Fish is always a good choice. Make sure to cook with the proper character to get the +20% cooking effect duration boost. That just means you’ll be able to grind for XP longer with the XP boost effect still active.

To farm XP, you just need to find monsters that give the biggest XP from defeats. These are some of the best monsters I’ve found so far — to reset, fast travel to a camp after defeating the monster, rest (and save) then travel back out to fight them again. Rinse and repeat as many times as you need to level up.

Mid-Game Farming | Level 25-30+

  • Location: Mahag Saar, Adan Lake

The best monster to farm in this area is the Creepzilla (Lvl. 27). The large lizard monster appears in the center of the large map area. It drops Bizarre Megacores and Lizard Fins. This monster drops 230+ XP and 9~ SP per defeat.

End-Game Farming | Level 75-100

To unlock this final XP farming monster, you’ll need to complete several other sub-quests first. Complete the “Spirit Temple” sub-quest found in Traslida Highway (Menancia), then “Another Hill-Side Anomaly” in Viscint (Menancia), and “Otherworldly Visitors” which is the next step of the same quest chain.

In this strange end-game dungeon, travel to the Vesper Rift and defeat the Chronos (Lvl. 95) boss here. For each victory, you’ll earn 70,000 XP (+bonus, about 150,00~ XP). To reset, just fast travel to campfire or use items to refill your CP so you can re-enter the fights faster. This is the best end-game enemy for XP grinding, and easily the fastest way to reach level 100.

Best Food Buffs

This game has many ways to enhance your abilities, with one of those ways being through the game’s cooking system. While many of the recipes require you to harvest meat from the Ranch you gain access to via a Sub-Quest, it is more than worth interacting with due to their significant buffs that will help you out immensely.

Heal CP After Battle (L)

Cure Points (CP) are an essential aspect of Tales of Arise’s combat system and even have crucial uses outside of battle. However, maintaining your CP meter can be demanding as it is only restorable via potions and very few recipes. And, even then, the recipes don’t replenish much CP… For the most part.

The Heal CP After Battle (L) buff is one of the best perks in a recipe as it restores 20 CP at the end of every battle, allowing you to slowly build your Cure Point Gauge back up if you are in dire straights.
