Octopath Traveler II: How to Level Up Quickly

    Levels are one of the most important marks of strength in an RPG. Octopath Traveler II is no different. But how do you gain levels, like, super-fast? That’s what our Octopath Traveler II Level Grinding guide is for!

    Fight High-Level Monsters

    This is an efficient yet dangerous method. You know what they say: “Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained”, “Fortune Favors the Bold”, “No Risk, No Reward”, yadda yadda yadda. But yeah, if you fight monsters in areas with higher ‘Danger Levels’ you will get more experience than areas with lower ‘Danger Levels’. Formulate a strategy to wipe out some higher-level monsters and you’ll be rolling in EXP. When you level up some, then you can swap over to Nighttime to fight even stronger monsters. Break them glass ceilings, adventurer!

    Battle Bonuses

    Completing battles in specific ways grant you bonuses that give you extra cash, JP, and EXP.

    Overkill is earned by dealing a powerful killing blow to a weakened enemy and nets you an EXP bonus. Untouched is earned by not taking any damage during a battle and nets you a money bonus. Domination is earned by killing an enemy in a single hit and nets you a JP bonus. Break is earned by breaking an enemy during battle and nets you an EXP bonus.


    There are skills that you can equip in order to get even more EXP!

    • Extra Experience: Receive additional EXP after battles. (Scholar)
    • Life in the Shadows: Receive additional EXP and JP after battles at night. (Thief)
    • More Rare Monsters: Raises the chances of encountering rare monsters. (Hunter)

    Special Monsters

    There are two special monsters that give you large amounts of EXP, JP, and money if you manage to defeat them. Forewarning, these monsters are hard to hit and are inclined to flee quickly.

    The first monster in question is the Octopuff Traveler. Defeating one of these will net you 1500 Leaves, 500 EXP, and 300 JP. Defeating one of these guys can be a challenge, however.

    The second monster you should keep an eye out for is the Cait Sith. Defeating one of these will net you 3000 Leaves, 1000 EXP, and 150 JP. Defeating one of these guys can be a challenge, however.
