This article is a walkthrough guide on how to level up and reach the maximum level in the Swords of Legends Online.
Levelling process in Swords of Legends Online is quite straightforward: Complete main- and side-quests and clear easy dungeons. Levelling can also be skipped completely by dungeon-grind and other methods, however not recommended for new player as you wont be learning basics of the game that you normally would. Tutorial is really well integrated into the first levels of the game, so it should not be ignored on first playthrough to get hang of the ropes.
In Swords of Legends Online, level does not traditionally always go up by one. The levelling has been split into multiple parts, such as first Levels are called Beginner, and it will continue up until level 36, and then level will reset back to zero, as your rank goes from Beginner to Student.
In order to reach maximum level, you should take these things into consideration:
- Always do Drill-level dungeons. If you find yourself struggling, remember to level up your battle companions and enable them in the interface before entering. On weaker classes, battle companions and friends are heavily recommended. NOTE: You have to clear all the enemies in every dungeon to get all the rewards. That means it is no use to try running past them.
- Always have food with experience bonus enabled. You get food as a reward for completing the tutorial or cooking.
- Always do every available Biography as they grant a lot experience and are very easy to do. Some levels can not be cleared without help of experience from Biographies.
- Always check your Cultivation interface for new unlocked Tutorials. These grant a lot of experience and unlock new parts of the game.
Other things to note while you are levelling that game does not clearly indicate:
- Save your old inventory bags. They can be used to expand your personal stash for free.
- You should not use your gear-upgrading items, because most of them can not be taken out and you are constantly changing gear while levelling up. They can be later on be tiered up to match the gear you have at maximum level.
Beginner 1 - Beginner 14[edit | edit source]
Quite straightforward. Follow the main quest storyline and clear side-quests on the the way.
You will receive a mount at level 4, which you should always use to speed up traveling time. In some areas, you can also fly with it. Read more about Levitating Sword.
When you reach Beginner 13, quest-line takes you to the first Dungeon: Yemo City in Wuzhao. This must be completed in drill mode to continue the main story. Drill-mode is simple and designed for solo-players. However if you want, you can take a companion with you, which is recommended to speed the dungeon. You will leave the dungeon with a level up to 14.
Beginner 13 - Beginner 21[edit | edit source]
Follow the storyline, do side-quests. The story will take you to District of Chang'an,
It is really easy to get stuck in multiple levels if you are not constantly making sure that every side quest has been completed.
At level 18 you unlock Nightmare Temple of Mercy. This can be skipped, as you will have enough experience to continue, however to unlock the dungeon it is recommended to do it at this stage to also help with future experience bottlenecks.
At one point you will be introduced to cooking. This quest is currently bugged, where it tells you to make a specific dish. To get around this, just go through all the cooking tabs and do the one food you are able to make. Missing ingredient can be bought from nearby food trader.
Beginner 21 - Beginner 25[edit | edit source]
At this stage, you will be spending most of your time at Weichuan Highlands.
At level 24, if you find yourself lacking experience to reach Beginner 25, repeat Frostbitten Path once or twice to level up and continue to next stage and new map.
Beginner 25 - Beginner 33[edit | edit source]
This stage focuses mostly on Huaixiu Village and Zhongnan Foothills. Main Quest and side quests should get you through this part. However always keep the food with experience bonus on you when completing quests, as the next part will require a tiny experience bump to get done.
Beginner 33 - Beginner 34[edit | edit source]
Many people find themselves at Beginner 33 with the next main story mission at the Cloudrise locked until Beginner 34 (even if all side missions were completed along the way).
Doing available Daily and Weekly missions should move the experience bar along, but if more experience is required, continue by doing dailies, weeklies, easier Blood Ruvia bounties and dynamic Heroic events.
Beginner 36 - Student 1[edit | edit source]
After reaching Beginner 36, you must fill the experience bar one more time. Continue the main story, finish all side-quests and Biographies. If you run out of everything, return back to either Zhongnan Foothills or Baxian Plateau and complete Heroic events, or grind the Frostbitten Path dungeon.
Once you fill the experience bar, there will be new unlocked quest at your Class' home map. To reach this map fast, every character has been given a skill called Transfer Rune which will spawn a portal and you can walk through to get to your class' designated home area. Complete the quest chain and you have reached current maximum level of Student 1.
Level will go up as the game matures and more updates are coming out, and currently known highest level stage is called Master.
Questline to achieve Student 1[edit | edit source]
Each class has its own unique set of quests you'll have to complete in order to receive the Student 1 status. The questlines become available when you have refilled the EXP bar after hitting level 36. You'll be summoned to your respective class headquarters where the questline begins.
