5 tips for leveling up in Swords of Legends Online

The first closed beta for the new MMORPG Swords of Legends Online (SOLO) starts on May 21st . We have already been able to play Alpha and have put together information and tips about leveling.


How does the leveling work? Leveling in Swords of Legends is very linear:


  • You follow a main story that gradually leads you into the various areas in which you can find side quests and other tasks that match your level.
  • In between there are individual phases in which you have to grind a little because your story quest only continues from a certain level.
  • However, the story and the quests are identical for each of the six classes , with the exception of a few special training quests in specially designed areas for the respective class. Apart from that, there is only one area per level area in which you can be on the move.

What is the max level? SOLO relies on an interesting system in which you first have to reach level “Student 36” and then complete an advancement quest. Then you have reached the current maximum level “Student 1”.

In China there was already an expansion through which you can reach “Student 36” and in turn get an advancement quest, which then takes you to a new level, which will probably be translated as “Master 1”.

How long does it take to reach the max level? In the Alpha, it took us about 16 hours of play to reach Student 1. Depending on how exactly you read the quest texts and follow the story, leveling will take between 10 and 25 hours.


Always do all the quests you can find

Why should you do all the quests? In addition to the main quest, which leads you through all areas, there are also side quests in each area and, from a certain level, daily tasks (marked with a green question mark on the map).

When leveling you should make sure that you accept and complete all quests as possible. Because in the course of the level process you come to a point in at least 3 places where you have to grind:

  • Between level 23 and 25
  • Between level 32 and 34
  • The last piece of level 36
There you get annoyed that you didn't do the low-level quests before.


Use bounties, dungeons, and other tricks to survive the grind

For some levels you will have to break out of the classic rhythm of the quests because there are simply no new quests that you can do. We have 3 tips for you for exactly these phases.

Completing dungeons : The easiest way to gain experience points is to complete the “Cool Path” dungeon on the “Practice” level. It is designed for players from level 22 and can be entered in the “Weichuan Highlands” area.

You can get help from fellow NPCs in addition to other players under “Enter Instance” in the interface. You have one of these at the beginning and get a second NPC in the process. With them you can run the dungeon at lightning speed.

While the opponents still give XP at level 23, later from level 32 you use the slightly more than 10,000 experience points that you get for completing the dungeon.

Defeating Bounties: A second effective way to gain additional experience points is to clear bounties on a daily basis. You unlock the bounties via “cultivation”, which we will go into in more detail later.

The bounties can be defeated from level 20 and are therefore particularly suitable for the grind between level 23 and 25. But you can still do them later without any problems.

Complete biographies: If you like stories and don't want to get to the max level so quickly, you can use the biographies for leveling. These are special story quests that tell many background stories.

There are relatively few experience points for graduation, but you learn more about the game world.


Pay attention to cultivation

What is Cultivation? Cultivation is a kind of tutorial for the various contents of the game. Via this interface you can get tutorials on:

  • the dungeons
  • the content of the interface such as friends list or alliances
  • life skills such as bounty hunting, the emerald lantern or fishing
  • the biographies
  • PvP, mini-games and housing

The cultivations are imperative in order to learn the various contents. In addition, you have to complete them in a fixed order at the beginning, while weekly events are added later and several tasks can be completed in parallel.


For the promotion to Student 1 you have to fill the XP bar again

If you want to reach the max level student 1, you have to completely fill your XP list again at level 36 in order to get the promotion quest. Again, you have to use the various grind methods again as soon as you have completed the story quest at level 35.

Again, the dungeon “Cool Wind” is recommended, as there is no new dungeon that is unlocked between level 22 and student 1.


You need the max level for most of the content in the game

Why is leveling so important? The level phase in Swords of Legends Online is almost comparable to a huge tutorial. Because most of the cool content is only available on Student 1, including:

  • The difficulties normal, hard and extreme in the dungeons of SOLO
  • All PvP content, including the arenas and battles in the open world
  • The housing
  • Many of the mini-games that SOLO offers
  • New endgame areas and the final of the current story

While we don't recommend rushing through the leveling process all the way through, the MMORPG definitely gets more exciting once you've reached the highest level. For some, this should be feasible in the course of the beta.
