Level up fast

One trick to gaining experience quickly is to use a mirror logo with Sprites.

Remove your equipment, move away from the Sprites to put a first mirror, once activated, get closer, refresh the mirror regularly to aggro the Sprites, they kill themselves with their attack which will be reflected.

To make a mirror you will need :

  • Protect L
  • Wisdom of the Ordained
  • Shell L

Also use Potion of Harmony to increase experience gained.

Clarification that you will have to farm most of your levels on FATES, because you will not gain xp on Sprites if your level difference is too great.
