So you have adventured in the world of Ether Saga but you want to find a way to level faster to access more content in your game. Or maybe you just want to know the quickest way to get to the good parts before you start.
There are few things you have to know before you can just rocket to the higher levels. I won't go into details on how to build your character, since that information is widely available on these forums, not to mention it's different for everyone. Just make sure you know what affinities and attribute points you are going level.
Now let's get to the topic.
Note that some of the prices in this guide are pretty high for low level characters, but we'll get to financing your leveling after the items portion. In everything time equals money, so more you spend, faster your progress will be.
There is no required items for leveling fast at lower levels.
At some point you absolutely must obtain your AOE (Area of effect) ethyr skill. It's not required on lower levels, but will save enormous amount of time when you get to the grinding quests. This might be problematic for a starting player as nowadays those can cost up to 40 gold in trading realm. To make it yourself would require quite a lot of farming in first two instances, so I recommend trying to get the money for it.
-Optional items to help you level-
Almost all gear you need until level 45 is simply handed to you, but you can always make your leveling even faster by getting gear that allows you to kill multiple monsters at once with few hits while still staying alive. On ranged classes there is no idea in investing to gear as you can kite the monsters.
(Will get into kiting a bit further)
Astral gear: At level 30 you can get astral gear that increases defence on every level of imbue. You could quite easily farm this gear from instances, but if you want to level really fast you don't want to do much low level instances. Players with higher level can get "Guess What ☆Gear You'll Get" tokens that can be used to get that gear and often sell them for about 15 gold a piece or maybe even less if you're lucky.
Level 30 diplomatic weapon: This is another thing that is in no way necessary, but can improve your damage and make grinding until 45 a lot faster. We are still talking about a few hours of time, so consider twice if you need it. You can obtain it from a lengthy quest after you finish Ordeal training quest - a quest that requires killing instance bosses or buying proof items that cost a lot for a player of that level. Even faster way is to buy the weapon, but be prepared to pay way more than the value it brings to your leveling.

[Guide] Leveling fast. First 45 levels.
06-28-2010, 05:19 AM #2
I usually imbue my armor after level 30 to +5 imbue. You don't need any auxiliary items to succeed, but you may need over hundred etherelics or condenced etherelics to get there. Imbuing at low levels is again not necessary and will only help you taking more monsters at once during your grinding quests.
-Financing your leveling-
If you read the comments about the gear you need, you may have noticed that in almost on every item I told you it's not necessary. Why did I add it to the guide then? Well, this guide is about leveling fast, and as stated in the ingress, time is money and it works both ways, money is time. If you get all of the items listed above you could halve the time it takes you to reach level 45.
So how do you get the money?
Easiest way is propably charging or doing surveys to get e-bucks if there is any available for your country. Nowadays e-bucks sell for around 300 gold each, so even one could finance probably your whole way up to level 45. The minimum to charge is 10 dollars though. You can sell your e-bucks at the broker in pokari.
After you reach level 20 you can do daily Moon vs Star exchange, but at low levels it only gives you some silver.
You get possessors and jadeons from your training quests, at level 30 you get some that aren't bound. Those can be sold for 150 gold for possessor and 200 gold for jadeon at the time of writing this guide. That alone are enough to finance your AOE and gear.
Ah yes, the leveling main part of the guide. The golden rule is to do your training quests. You can find available quests from pressing Ctrl+Q or going to Quests list (Q) and clicking on available quests. Also do your Ash Chest quest, Occupation Reductions and Events.
Special training quests you don't have to do:
Proof of Defeat
- This is an instance quest that doesn't give you much anything if you complete it. A proof of defeating all bosses in Crypt of Hunters, the first instance must be obtained to complete it. Best way to get the proof is to buy it off from trading realm, but the prices are high. Required to get The Ordeal quest.
- Another instance quest, but this one give you great experience and unlock the quest to obtain level 30 weapon. This one requires proof of defeating bosses in Sandstorm Ridge, the second instance. Again your best bet to get the proof is by buying the items but they cost even more than the items for the previous one.
- This isn't actually a quest at all. You are able to receive a bound jadeon of soul that lasts 3 hours from Wehn daily, but you won't be needing those so don't take it.
- This isn't actually a quest either. It's used to donate virtue items to gain Gaap Lands virtue, something that comes useful when you start to meld pets or possess, since it can be traded for melding charms or double exp tokens.

Adventure quests (When you run out of training quests):
Adventure quests often give you great amount of experience, but requires you to go into instances and kill some hard monsters. If you need to do these, start with the ones that target non-boss monsters. For boss kills ask around you politely and changes are some higher level players can clear the instances for you. Remember to behave well and thank the persons helping you as making friends is a lot more useful than making a fool of yourself (if a higher level person has something else to do, don't get mad).
Do the daily events whenever they are available. If you start your leveling with Collect Tears quest, you are guaranteed at least 6 levels in full party.
- This event is on at 12pm, 3pm and 6pm. You can do it once a day. It starts at Ziola in Pokari. You get one of the Collect [Race] Tears quests randomly and you have to find a party that matches your [Race]. In example if you get Collect Ren Tears, find a party that has Ren. Do this when the event starts and you will find a party easily on realm 8. The quest itself is quite simple, go to the given race starting town and talk to the people asked in the quest. Return to Pokari and talk to Ziola again to get the Pure [Race]Tears quest. When your whole party has done it, the leader goes to talk to different NPC's while you follow him/her. Every npc has a change to give you 3 event tokens and you will get 3 at the end of the quest. If you don't get full party, you will get less tokens.
- Every 3 hours starting 9pm there is an mini event in Pokari. These event's usually give you 2 event tokens and are easy to do. Some require that you have your cloud. These events are started in Pokari in the center area or near the stairs to Matchmaker.
Inside the Dreams Trials adventure is yet another 2 really easy daily event quests that give you one event token each. Talk to Chauncy the Adventure Dispatcher in Pokari and enter Dreams Trials. Inside where you spawn is Jino, who has the quest From Dreams to Pokari. That quest teleports you to so called Event Pokari. There is one quest where you collect stardust and hand it to the npc in east and other where you collect apples and hand them to the npc in west.
7 pm bash events
On Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays you can do an event for great experience, it starts at 7pm in the middle square of Pokari and you get to kill waves of white monsters that dies rather slow, but you get a lot of tokens for them. Since the mobs are always white, you might be able to squeeze in some occupation reductions too.
Occupation Reduction quests are a great way to gain experience all the way to level 90. You get them from Local agents in Realm 8, Pokari, Gallio and Dizzet. After you talk to some townspeople you have to kill 10 monsters of your own level and you receive 2 event tokens for completing. You can do them 5 times a day from 3 different areas, so it sums up to 30 event tokens per day.
Quest starter: Gaap Land Local Agent, near when.
First you talk to Hydraulic Engineer, near stash, then you search for Wu Cheng'en to get to Transfer Hatred. Wu Cheng'en circulates Pokari so just fly around the outskirts of the town to find him.
Quest starter: Gallio Region Local Agent, near the entrance to the city.
First talk to Lil' Quac, near the teleporter, then you fly to Wumbrane Land God to get to Transfer Hatred.
Quest starter: Dizzet Local Agent, behind a house when you pass Zeon in Dizzet from teleporter.
Teleport to Amaz to talk to the second NPC right where you spawn, then teleport to Judium to fly to Wolfgang Chief. To get to the Chief follow the river below Judium.

Sorry to post this guide unfinished but this info already should get you to level 45 pretty fast and I noticed people asking about this so I decided to release what I had written so far. If you have any comments, feel free to say your word.
This guide is based on everything I did when I tested how long it takes to level from 1 to 45 these days, you can scroll back and forth the genie's eye recording attached to my previous post "Level 1-45 in 17 hours" if you want to see some tips on how to get the quests mentioned here done with fast.

I'd maybe just recommend adding some info about how to handle bound items from quests.
And maybe a note about how to not screw up the bag token quest.

Hm, if I remember correctly the Proof of Defeat will need to be finished before you get The Ordeal to unlock the Lv30 Diplomatic weapons.
