Grind into Obscurity!

Fortune favors the bold, but it also favors those who have a damn clue. For that is the duty of this guide. To help give you a damn clue about where to gain Experience and Capacity Points.

This is a collaborative guide, and thus information from various people and sources is included in.

Most of the leveling for EXP is done solo with trusts or with a friend or two. The level ranges of the suggestions are set with that in mind, but you can of course move as you see fit.

This guide assumes that the player has obtained Trusts already.
Note: Trusts do not level up with the player much like pets and must be recalled in order to be leveled up. They are your level at the time of casting including the casters iLvl armor once applicable.

  • A quick way to release all of your trusts is to use the command "/refa all".

Comments:Not much to say other than do your Records of Eminence and Fields of Valor objectives. You will out level these places very fast. You could grind these areas to level 12 if you like, but you have to walk through the next ones anyway if you intend to keep leveling.
