Leveling in Lineage W can be one of the most challenging tasks you can face in this game. Luckily, the game offers a lot of methods that the player can choose to level up with, but not all of them are equal in terms of the experience that you can gain. There are some methods that you can try depending on the situation, while others are simply more reliable due to the fact that you gain more experience in a short amount of time, which we’ll be explaining further in this guide.

Experience is gained by completing almost anything in the game. A player levels up when they earn a certain amount of experience, and at certain levels, players will be able to gain a skill point that they can use to raise their attributes. If you want to learn more about improving your character, we suggest you go to our Hero Guide [A Guide to Your Hero] to learn more about how you can improve your character aside from just leveling up. Let’s take a look at the various ways players can level up their heroes.

Main Quest

The Main Quest is the fastest way to gain experience in the game. You can find the main quest on the left side of your screen. It’s the only quest that has a golden title, so you’ll have no problem looking for it. The main quest gives a large amount of experience every time the player completes a chapter of the story. By skipping the dialogue and using the teleport function, players can easily gain a few levels in a few minutes or so, which is very convenient if you’re in a rush.

Players that enjoy the story and like to read the dialogue can still benefit from the main quest’s huge experience bonus. The experience gained is undeniable, however, the biggest problem that players might experience when leveling using the main quest is that there are quests that have a minimum level requirement to attempt. This means that your progress will eventually be halted, and you’ll be forced to find alternative ways to earn experience in the game. Luckily, there are a lot more methods to choose from other than this.

Side Quests

Side Quests are similar to Main Quests, except they’re not mandatory to progress the story. Each side quest has its own story, but it’s not necessary for the player to complete all of this to understand the endpoint of the narrative. Side Quests also give a ton of experience, but they’re pretty hard to come by and are usually dependent on which class you’re playing. Try to look around new areas you discover for NPCs that might have a few side quests for you to complete.

The real value of side quests is in the rewards that the player gets from them. Since side quests are particularly rare, they offer lots of useful rewards upon completion. If you’re looking for a quick way to level up, side quests probably won’t help you that much because you’ll spend more time walking around than gaining experience. Side quests should probably only be done whenever you encounter them and not by actively hunting them around the map. Some side quests may be too over-leveled for your hero.

Mission Boards

Mission boards are the most reliable way to gain experience in Lineage W. In cities and towns, players have the option to go to mission boards either by physically looking for them or going to their navigation button (which is the button where the auto-attack button usually is) and choosing to auto-path their way to the nearest board. Players will be able to choose from a variety of missions on the board, which gives a decent amount of experience and they can do so as many as they want to until all missions are finished.

Players should try completing mission board quests whenever they enter a new area if they have the time. Most quests you can find here are simple grind quests, so you can just leave your phone running on auto-combat and come back for it in a few minutes. You gain experience from both killing waves of monsters and upon mission completion. The rewards that you gain from the mission boards are also pretty decent, so it’s worth doing so even if you’re not trying to rush for levels.

Idle Grinding

Idle grinding is the most basic way of gaining experience, and so is also probably the slowest way to do so. The concept is simply to go to a specific area and leave your character on auto-combat to endlessly kill endless hordes of monsters. Unfortunately, unless you have an experience boost, it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours just to gain a single level. The only reason why you should do this is if you run out of missions or if you are busy at work/school and still want to farm some loot.

There are a lot of problems involving idle grinding. For one, if you’re a melee class, you may have a more difficult time killing monsters since all the spawn points are occupied by a large group of players. Ranged attackers will always have the advantage because they don’t have to go towards a monster. Another problem is that you can die while in auto-combat because monsters will attack you until you run out of potions to heal yourself with. 


Dungeons are the final method of gaining levels. This method gets a hefty amount of experience but can take a while unless you’re a member of a Blood Pledge or have friends that play the game. This is because you have to assemble a party or join a group of players in the overworld to challenge bosses. Otherwise, the boss will simply crush you and regenerate all of its HP when you come back.

It may be difficult to rely on dungeons as a source of experience, but this is probably the most enjoyable method to do so. It’s very challenging, but not to a point where the game is nigh unplayable. As long as you and your allies stick to your roles, you won’t have a problem clearing the content.
