Introduction

This is the common way of leveling, not necessarily the best one. Be sure to check out the available Class Guides to find leveling guides tailored for specific classes. Always remember to advance your class when you are at the appropriate Base and Job level, those are:

  • Job level 10 for Novice/High Novice.
  • Job level 50 for 1st Classes/Transcendent 1st Classes.
  • Base level 99 and Job level 50 for 2nd Classes.
  • Base level 99 and Job level 70 for Transcendent 2nd Classes.

Ragnarok is meant to be non-linear, explore! Go craft your own adventures where you're most happy and enjoy your own discoveries! If you just go with the crowd and be like everyone else, you may miss out on a lot of your own kind of fun.

Leveling Tips

  • EXP Share: 30 base levels. For example, if someone in your party is 175, then everyone else in the party must be 145 or higher to enable even sharing EXP.
  • EXP Boosting Gear: Angel Poring Boots and Heroic Capes are great leveling equipment that can be worn at level 1.
  • Before you rebirth: Complete several Lv.91-99 quests (e.g. Rachel/Veins, Glast Heim, Turtle Island quests) while your character is at Lv.99/50. Job change and gain enough levels to turn into High 1st Class (High Swordman, High Thief, High Mage, etc). Then, turn in the Lv.91-99 quests you have completed when you were Lv.99/50 for quick levels.
  • Spawn Points::Renewal changed the spawn points of nearly all monsters in the entire game. If you can't find a certain monster, or if you are not sure where to get certain items, try using the following commands:
    • CTRL + ` : Displays the map of all fields in Rune Midgard. Press Alt or Tab to toggle map names, and the name and level of monster with the highest spawn amount on the map.
    • @whereis <monster name>: Displays a list of maps where a particular monster spawns and the spawn amount.
    • @monsterinfo <monster name>: Displays detailed info of a particular monster.
    • @whodrops (Item Name): Displays a list of monsters that drop the particular item and its drop rate.
  • Novice Package: Every new character receives a package, that contains the mostly account bound items:
Novice Package Intermediate Package (Lv 50) Veteran Package (Lv 99) Master Package (Lv 125)
500 Novice Potion 250 Intermediate Potion 250 Veteran Potion 250 Master Potion
1 Rental Halter Lead Box 50 Novice Blue Potion 100 Novice Blue Potion 150 Novice Blue Potion
5 Blessing Lv 10 Scroll 50 Novice Fly Wing 50 Novice Fly Wing 2 Combat Rations 30m
1 Intermediate Package 1 Veteran Package 1 Master Package


Novice

The Main Office.

When you make a new character, you will spawn high above Prontera. This is where your adventure begins! Enter the portal to begin the Novice Tutorial and follow the instructions. It's possible to skip the tutorial if you already did it in another character. However, the Novice Tutorial and the Poring Village Instance will put you right at the 2nd Class, so you can skip all the novice and 1st class part of this guide.

If you decided to skip the Tutorial, you can get some quick levels doing those steps:

Note: Do not change your job until you have completed all of the steps, this is important because you will get equipments and consumables to make your leveling experience smoother.

Third Class and Expandeds Evolution

Congratulations, you are one step closer to becoming the number one hero! From this point on you have plenty of ways to level up like Gramps, Instances, Eden Board Quests, quests around the world and hunting MVPs.

If this is your first character it's highly recommended to do as many Eden Board Quests as possible, located at Eden on the second floor. This way, you can start getting Paradise Coin to buy the new Awaken Paradise Equipment. While we are talking about equipments, have a look at Mora Equipment, they have plenty of useful sets for some classes.

It's also recommended to do these two instances as soon as possible:

Below are some quick, useful quests to get more experience.

Level 100

Illusion Dungeons

Starting from Level 100, Illusion Dungeons become accessible. These dungeons give a nice amount of EXP, have some possibly useful equipment for certain classes/builds, and drop some useful cards.

Notably, Illusion of Underwater (Level 140+) and Illusion of Luanda (Level 160+) have Item Turn-in Quests, which allow lesser geared characters to gain some EXP without killing monsters, provided they have the required items, either from hunting the monsters or buying from other players.

New World Access Quest

New World Access Quest NPCs

This is a pre-requisite for the Banquet for Heroes questline. You must have 50,000 zeny to complete this quest.

  1. Go to the Eden Group. @go eden
  2. Speak to the Cat Hand Agent (moc_para01 104, 109)Copied!.
    • Select "Why don't you collect it yourself?"
    • Then "I'll help the merchants."
  3. Speak with Cat (moc_fild20 368, 197)Copied! to the right.
    • Select "Let's do this!"
  4. After being teleported, go north and speak to the Cat Hand Agent (moc_fild22b 182, 178)Copied!.
    • Select "To the other world!"
  5. After teleporting, the quest is complete. You may now continue with the Banquet for Heroes.

Banquet for Heroes

Rock Ridge

Doing the Rock Ridge introductory questline will net you a good amount of experience, you can also buy equipments using the Rock Ridge Coin.

Level 140

Banquet for Heroes

  1. If you've done the questline shown above for Banquet for Heroes, you'll unlock 1 quest (gives a lot of Experience) and some repeatable Daily Quests.
  2. Start off by buying a Flower from Flower Lady, at (prontera 113, 42)Copied!.
  3. Go to the Prontera Prison located northeast of the Banquet Hall. Full information of the quest can be found at Restricted Sector.
  4. Inside the prison there are 8 NPCs, 7 of which will give you a daily quest.
  5. Finishing Restricted Sector requires you to only talk to each NPC inside, so you don't need to finish any of their quests. Although you will receive a decent amount of experience by completing them (35m Base/35m Job each).
  6. There's also one quest located at Invaded Prontera (unlocked once you finish Room of Consciousness).
    How to get there: Warper Icon.pngWarper –› Instances –› Sky Fortress .
  7. Speak to Chief Guard, at (prt_q 156, 324)Copied!, to get a daily quest.
    Full information can be found here Chief Guard Requests.

All of these quests, except for Restricted Sector, are daily quests (resets at 4 AM server time).

The first time you do them they will give you around 400m Base/400m Job EXP, after that they will start to give you 295m Base/295m Job.

Verus

Doing Verus Daily Quests is a good source to gain some experience, to do most of them you need to join the Phantasmagorica Excavation Team.

Gramps

This quest or instance is repeatable.
The cooldown is 4 hours.
Our beloved grandpa.

In Gramps quests, you will level super fast (especially if you join a big party). This is great if you just want to reach max level as soon as possible to join PvP/WoE and for efficiency in farming. But it's not the only way to level up, you don't have to choose between the Eden Questlines, Eden Boards and Gramps.

Information

  • In these quests, you are required to kill 400 monsters of two types.
  • The hunted monsters are rotated once a month.
  • You can find a party in the Eden Headquarters
  • There you can do Alt+C > (LFM> <level range> <roles>) or in the #lfg channel.
  • Type @lfg on and then use either of these terms:
  • LFP> Gramps <level range> <role> (Looking for a Party)
  • LFM> Gramps <level range> <roles> (Looking for a Party Member)
  • To get a kill credit on the monster, you must be on the screen.
  • There are four level ranges:
    • Level 85-114
    • Level 115-144
    • Level 145-174
    • Level 175-200
    Note: You cannot enter areas lower or higher your level even if your quest is incomplete
  • There is a specific loot system on Gramps maps:
    • Weapon and Armor type items don't drop from mobs.
    • If you have reached max level of the zone you are in, mobs will no longer drop items.
    • If you do not have active Gramps quests, mobs will no longer drop items.
    • If you have guild tax, mobs will drops items at a lower rate the higher your tax rate is.
  • Monsters in Gramps don't cast a number of problematic skills:
    • Waterball
    • Hide
    • Cloaking
    • Reflect Shield
    • Magic Mirror
    • Defender
    • Quagmire

Walkthrough

  1. To start the two quests speak to the Monthly Hunts Board at the top left of Eden (@go eden). Accept both quests in your level range.
  2. Select the appropriate quest:
    • "Monthly Map Name" [85-114]
    • "Monthly Map Name" [115-144]
    • "Monthly Map Name" [145-175]
    • "Monthly Map Name" [175-200]
  3. Talk to Gramps (right) and choose Can you warp me?.
  • You will not be able to enter the map again if you leave and are out of the level range. However you can still defeat them:
    • Type @whereis <monster name> followed by @navi <map_name> to finish your kill count and turn it in.
  • A party usually consists of:
    1. Tank/Lurer: Their job is to collect monsters and bring it to the party. (Mostly Swordsman/Thief/Acolyte branch)
    2. AoE: Their job is to kill the mass brought to the party by the lurer. (Mostly Hunter/Mage/Gunslinger branch)
    3. Support: Their job is to replenish HP/SP and provide buffs. (Mostly Priest/Sage/Performer branch)
    4. DPS: Their job is to kill single monsters left out and harass the Support. (Mostly Thief/Knight branch)
  • The Party Setup is always 'Even Share' on all three settings (ALT+Z > Magnifier Glass at the bottom) set by the party leader.
  • Note that if you have no AoE damage but you're a Damage class, you can be and please BE useful. Don't auto follow people. Defend your support and help the party to keep moving.
  • 5073.png Convenio is helpful if an Arch Bishop can mob and survive the Convenio cast as the party leader. However you will fall behind in kills as the party will kill things while you are teleporting to different areas of the map.
