Hello dear core players!
I will make small tutorial for quick leveling on A9 including monsters,maps and some screenshoots.
So lets start of level 1;
You start in ardeca (A9 line home town).
So as the game challenges you to level your character this is where you start from;
Phase 1: Ardeca
Level 1-25 you kill these monsters named ''Moth'' outside the ardeca town.
Phase 2: Parca temple (lvl25+)
25-48 you kill monsters named ''praus'' inside the parca temple.
Phase 3: Crespo (lvl48+)
48-74 you kill monsters named ''spring rock preassure''
Phase 4: treassure of Crespo dungeon A (lvl74+)
74-80 you kill monsters inside the crespo abyss A/B/C dungeon.
Phase 5: Outside python castle (lvl80+)
80-105 you kill these monsters ''stix'' and ''carbon''
Phase 6: Doomed maze (lvl105+)
105-115 you kill these monsters from seetoth army (axeman,ranger,warrior...)
Phase 7: Dungeon of shield (better known as shadowshield dungeon) (lvl105+)
115-131 You kill monsters inside the dungeon,and the dungeon is also located in Doomed maze map. Location of dungeon: http://prntscr.com/bad24d
entrace is in this statue: Ss: http://prntscr.com/bad2j5
Phase 8: Infinite battle dungeon (better known as IB) (lvl131+)
Item required for entrace:Infinite battle rank A Box http://prntscr.com/bad3e6
which can be bought at NPC Yosh in ardeca
In infinite battle you can decide weather to go there untill level 181,and then hit 1-2 deadfronts to max out,or either max out in the infinite battle itself.
How to get there?
Simply talk with teleporter in ardeca named ''Makio'' and chose castor cave teleport Ss: http://prntscr.com/bad4i3
When you get there,dungeon is located at the end of the map Ss: http://prntscr.com/bad4zt
at red arrow there is portal,and when you enter it you will find yourself infront of the dungeon Ss: http://prntscr.com/bad5cm
You will be facing off strong waves of monsters there,so my personal suggestion is to ask someone to help you in IB!
Phase 9 (finishing):Deadfront
GMT +1 TIME (A9 Line server) (almost any level can go to deadfront,but most people only go at 181+ lvl).
To get to deadfront,speak with NPC named ''Jerome'' in ardeca and select chain of fire teleport Ss: http://prntscr.com/bad7u8
Item needed is deadfront map of fotress which can be bought in the middle of deadfront map Ss: http://prntscr.com/bad8m7
After party applied for deadfront entrace,you will enter deadfront and face off monsters which give good experience for leveling.
There you should be done with leveling with max level 200. gratz!.
Phase 10: Ranking
Not much to speak about ranking,ranking system works same as leveling system.
You kill monsters,but instead of experience you gain grade&purchase points.
Grade points are the ones which are needed for your rank advance
And purchase points are the points which you can use to buy cool things like 40% talisman,different weapons etc.
each rank you will be given extra stat points and bonuses.
Maps for ranking:
1.Abyss of crespo (Teleport from parca temple)
2.Ice castle(teleport from ardeca ''core'' NPC)
3.140 expedition map,12 people needed,170 expedition ''cherubim's nest'' 12 people needed (teleport from ardeca ''core npc''
4.Deadfront 200+ (map and party needed)
5.Events that are created by core-staff.
That was pretty much it,i hope this small tutorial helped!
If someone doesnt understand something,feel free to PM me on forums,or in game ([GM]Kyle).
See you around in game,good luck!
