Leveling For Dummies


This is a guide composed of my experience with leveling in Jade Dynasty. Compared to many other mmo's it is very easy.


1-15

you start out in sunstream near tanis ka , with a buble over your head thats really annoying. read all the stuff it says or just skip all of it. Next you'll want to get the lunarshade quest from tanis ka. every 5 hours you get a lunarshade stone which is used to up the energy of your esper. Next you'll want to start grinding. While you grind from 1-15 think about what faction you want to choose. heres a brief explanation of each faction and links to skill builds and much larger explanations of each faction. getting to 15 should take a few hours , and can even be done over night if you make your character meditate. i made mine at aroung mindight and made him meditate until morning , when i woke up the enxt day he was lvl13 and it took me about an hour or so to grind out the next 2 lvls to 15 Smile

Skysong: healer class that is vital for any party situation Lupin: perfect for pvp players and those who like to PK. Very high crit rate and dmg Vim: overall well rounded class. mainly Tanks but can do high dmg and is suitable for PvP and PvE equally Modo: the uber class at high lvls. has various forms and does high attack dmg. Can even tank better than Vim if you do it right Jadeon: primarily specializes in AoE skills. has the lowest hp and defence of all the classes and is terrible in PvP( so i've heard )


These are guides on how to build the perfect build for each faction. includes pictures. as well as a detailed explanation of the faction.

What you should do is keep a row or 2 open for your pots and other items , the rest of the rows do this: in each area there are 4 different kinds of provisions. all are of the same grade. What you do is Command your esper with the quick setting to only pick up the grade of provtions you are grinding on , using this function you should only find what you told your esper to pick up in your bag bag when you get back , so you have a bunch of 50/50 stacks. why do this? because as you invigorate you'll pick up items automatically,and make much money, and if your afk you wont be there to run back and forth selling stuff. so , this makes it so you obtain many many stacks of provisions. If you expand your inventory , you can grind for a very long time before your inventory completely fill with stacks of provisions. and then you go back to town and sell ALL of them and you will make alot of cash in return. each new zone you enter , every 15 lvls , this gets much better as the grade of the provisions goes up and the monsters drop more money.



15-30

now that you're level 15 , go to tanis ka can choose which faction you wish to join. you will then have to do a quest to join the faction , and each faction has a different quest. Once thats done and all accounted for , you're now the faction you chose and can now start inputing your skills and obtaining the correct gear for your faction. every day tanis ka can give you a free set of gear , which cannot be sold. you can take advantage of this by working on refining it before you hit the lvl of the gear. for example at 75 i can obtain the lvl90 gear set from tanis ka. until im 90 i can get it everyday one time , and i use refining talismans to try and get a good refine on it, and this costs me zero gold in the process ( other than the refining costs ). this is a goos strategy as many higher lvl gears can cost alot , so you can save yourself some cash by getting it for free from tanis ka. Also you should have obtained the lvl15 faction esper and a weapon. dont worry too much about the grade of the esper and its stats. from 1-75 all you need to worry about on your esper is that it allows you to Invigorate, a.k.a AFK Grind Very Happy. your espers energy bar needs to be half full , this is where the lunarshades come in , to be able to invigorate. basically this just makes your characters attack automatically , and will do so in various ways depending on the options and how you've set it up. but , Back to leveling your character.

You also may have noticed the gods gift option that tanis ka has. get it now. you'll be given double exp for 2 hours and the almighty 8h buffs. the stones you have last 2 hours in your inventory but give you an 8h buffs. Gods Gift ( or GG ) should be obtained everyday , and early on you can obtain tons of levels through this magnificent gift. Now head on over to the Jadeon map. in the Jadeon Map , on the bottom left-hand side of the map you'll see the Zaaras Temple. Go there and start grinding. the mobs may be a bit tough so make sure you stock up on potions before hand. This starts a bit of trial and error, as you may be unsure of how many pots you need. once you get into a new area check how much DMG the mobs do to you , and you can figure out how many stacks of pots you will need to last the 8-10 hours of power-grinding while you have GG on. These Mobs can be easy or hard depending on which faction you chose , as not all faction will have the same defence or attack power. I'm a Vim , and these mobs did very little dmg to me so i killed them until i was lvl30. Most classes can do the same, and its very very easy with Gods Gift. But if it runs out and they're too hard , go find some white or pink named mobs and kill those. Thats the general know-how of grinding until lvl60


30-45

this is a fun time , as now you are in Skysong. Skysong is beginning zone for where you can do the Astral Tales event , and Also Gilhooks spawn as well as several world bosses and you can start doing the Mystic Treasure chest quest at lvl30. Many of the world bosses are for 50's , and the astral tales is tough early on, but try to do A.T. if you can. Also doing the Mystic Treasure chest is nice because the rewards you obtain from the chests can be sold for good cash in the trading realm, or you can use yourself ( i advise keeping the treasure urns and bowls , very vital for your esper at 75 ). But this is about leveling , not those things. The same predecure goes for Skysong. The mobs tho are harder and you may need to adjust your stratagy a bit when you enter this area. Make sure you get new gear for lvl30 , and try and get it to +3 or higher quality. Good defense and attack power will make leveling easier , as the more defence you have the less dmg you take : thus the longer you can grind. HP helps but is not as important. so if possible obtain a +5 or higher body or weapon. You may also notice some elites in Skysong. these may be wandering around amongst the other mobs. they are alot harder because they have a big pile of HP. but they drop special items and lots of loot. Also you may see a Gilhook , which has a radom chance to spawn in various areas around the map when someone opens a mystic treasure chest. These give lots of exp and loot. look out for them. By now you should have a good understanding of the basic aspects of leveling.


* IMPORTANT NOTE*

you may have noticed you different thing that i havent talked about: quests. I have elarned that quests are NOT heavily needed to gain levels. this is mainly because you will be fighting harder monsters than those currently available from the dispatcher. sometimes not , and when that period of time comes around it becoms worth while to stack up on dispatcher quests and to then grind on those mobs. by gaining exp from the mobs and then the bonus from finishing the quest, you will grind a bit faster. Although you cannot be afk for long periods of time when you do this for it to be efficient.


45-60

Now were in the Billows. Also you may notice that when you're almost to the next Gear Set lvl ( which is every 15 lvls ) grinding can get alot slower and harder because the mobs you have to kill hit for alot and makes you use more hp pots , thus slowing you down. this is alot more prevalent at higher levels. But anywat at 45 you are also able to get Spiritual Enlightenment lvl2. This allows you to equip the lvl45 gear as well as access the tier 2 skills. You should be prompted when u hit 45 with a quest which starts your tier 2 quest. completel it and you can now equip your new gear and use new skills. The Billows is a bit harder but now we have new gear and it will be a piece of cake in the beginning. Also now the Special Ops NPC in Sunstream ( SS for short ) will give you a quest every day to kill a cursed mob. from 45 onward you can do this everyday , as there will be a new one in each zone. this mob is hard when u are 45 , but around 50 and 55 it becomes easily solo-able, and is very easy with a party. It gives alot of exp so make sure you do it when you can. Now you've grinded for a good bit and should really start to understand how leveling goes, as it is quite simple now: GG , Invigorate all day , do quests if you want, Cursed Monster. Also at 45 you are now able to get a Chi. and Chi goes in your Chi slot and is purchasable from the shady dealer npc in SS ( sunstream ). this is vital at 45 because it bosts your hp/sp , eva and def by alot. it will make grinding much much easier from then on. you can purchase a new one every 30 levels. they cost quite a bit tho so save up!


60-75

60 is when leveling shifts. now it isnt about the color of the mobs name , but its about a quest calld Sleepless. this can be obtained starting at 60 onto lvl150 from the Physician in each town at 60 you get new gear and you start grinding in Doom Bog. nasty place but has some cool mobs in it. the sleepless are quests wher eu kill mobs of your own lvl , white named mobs. sleepless usually covers 2 or more different mobs. so this is what you do: scout out a good spot to gridn with a perfect amount of spawns and somwhere that isnt taken already by someone else. go get GG if its abailable , or buy buffs from someone in SS, get the sleepless quests , and proceed to the gridn spot you find and setup to invigorate. the quest makes you kill mobs for 24 hours , and after its done you get a gigantic amount of exp , several millions if you constantly grind out all 24 hours. this is how you will level from now on , focusing on Cursed Kill quest and Sleepless.


75-90

Now you're in Wildlands. very cool zone , has some nifty mobs. nothing new here , other than new gear and a new Esper. This is when espers start to matter. the 75 esper is alot better than the 15 esper , stat wise and its skill should be way stronger ( i know for Vim my esper skill is the best skill i have right to use ). if possible try and find someone selling a lvl1 Divined quality esper for your faction. If not , then use some of those treasure bowl to obtain Mediums for your faction and for the lvl75 espers. make sure you get the correct ones as there are certain ones used for each faction. Now goto the mystic esper npc and buy trigrams and item which allows you to bloodsmelt trigrams , a item worth 50s and is the Meium used for trigrams. Now bloodsmelt the trigram until it is Heavenly or Divine quality. Once its there , bloodsmelt it with the new lvl75 esper. Do this until your new esper is Divine quality. the reaosn why you shouldnt bloodsmelt precious quality espers to up the qaulity of your main esper si because it in fact lowers the growth for each stat. using heavenly or divined greatly increases the growth for each stat. make sure you do this at lvl1 to take full advantage of leveling it up. since you cant get a new esper until lvl105 , lvl up this one as much as you can. at lvl15 mine increases my hp by 700 , sp by 500 , and each resist by 40-50 and my attack gets a nice bonus. Plus you can use a treasure Urn to get the Tome and Accesory for your esper which ups its skill by 1 ,so your esper skill will be lvl3 and do more dmg and cost you less sp to cast. This will really help you out later on , and is something you should learn now so you can create a perfect esper at end game as they are very important then. But in general jsut continue doing sleeples and cursed kill quest. The mobs in the late 80's start hitting really hard , so make sure you have 8hour buffs all the time when you grind or else you'll Waste your pots.
