Here’s how to level up fast in Ragnarok Mobile:
- Clear all dailies & use adventure meatballs
- Do Main Story quests
- Get Pet Labor ASAP
- Get a Mentor for bonus EXP
- Aim for monsters you can instantly kill
- Cook & Eat Gourmet food
- Know your enemy’s element, size and race
- Enhance, Upgrade, Enchant, Refine your equips
- Use Lightning Chain
Clear all Daily Quests, use Adventure Meatballs
Daily Quests are an amazing source of EXP.
You can do two Monster Resistance quests per day which gives you 10x EXP rate for a limited amount of EXP.
You also get 10 Message Board Quests per day, and completing each quest gives lots of EXP.
Some Board quests are easy like taking photos or escorting monsters, while some take more time like killing 25 monsters. For Board quests that require farming materials, you can just buy the required items from the Exchange.
Instantly clear dailies using Adventure Meatballs
A great tip is to take advantage of Adventure Meatballs (a.k.a. Riceballs). You can purchase “Mercenary’s Mission” in the Adventure Meatball shop, an item that allows you to instantly clear Message Board Quests.
Usually I do the easy Board quests manually then use the Mercenary’s Mission on “kill 25 mobs” quests.
Adventure Meatballs can be obtained from:
- Reaching 20 Assistant Intimacy points
- Clicking on your Pet frequently
- Pet Labor (Cooking Center)
- Pet Adventure Rewards
- Buy from Big Cat Coin Shop

Do Main Story quests
Main Story quests are the quests with “red” exclamation marks on the NPCs and they give decent EXP.
In early levels, you should always do Main Story quests. However in later levels around 2nd job and above, only do Main Story quests after consuming all your Stamina and Daily Quests. Some main story quests require killing monsters and you don’t want to waste precious Stamina on mobs that don’t give good EXP for your level. (Related: Leveling Spots per Level)
Green quests are side quests and don’t give much EXP. You should only clear them after you run out of Daily and Main Quests.
Get Pet Labor for free EXP Potions
Pet Labor is the best and easiest way to level up fast through EXP Potions. Once you reach Level 45, start using it right away!
Using an item called the Labor Traveling Machine, you can send Pets to Pet Labor.
By sending a Pet to the Item Shop workplace, you can get around 10-20 Base and Job EXP Potions per day, which give MILLIONS of Base and Job EXP in total!
The best part is, you don’t have to do anything: when you wake up from sleep in the morning, say hello to a dozen free EXP potions—instant level up!
You can unlock Pet Labor through the Pet NPC in South Prontera (near the Music Box) at Lv 45.

Get a Mentor for bonus EXP
Getting a Mentor and becoming a Student have huge benefits to your leveling:
- Mentor can buff their Students with the Adventure Guide item which gives 170% EXP bonus for a whopping 24 hours!
- Mentors can buff their Students with the Guardian Scroll item, which gives 20 stat points bonus. (Doesn’t work on Transcendent classes)
- Students get instant bonus EXP points for doing each of the following daily quests:
- Clearing 2, 6, 10 Board Quests
- Clearing 2, 5 Time Rifts
- Clearing Training Ground once
- Accepting the Adventure Guide Buff once
- Doing the Valhalla Ruins once
- Clearing 20, 40, 50, 60 Endless Tower floors
You can only be Mentored if you’re below Level 85.
Aim for monsters you can instantly kill
You only have ~300-360 Stamina per day, make the most out of it!
Aim for mobs that you can instantly kill in 1-3 shot, instead of going for high level high EXP mobs but take 5+ shots to kill. One of the most common 1-hit grinding spots is the Eggyras in Payon Cave 1F.
Another tip is to target mobs with a high EXP per “kill duration” (i.e. amount of time to kill the monster). One of the best mobs that give the highest EXP per HP ratio is Wormtail, Dustiness and Metaller in North Prontera, which is why that map is very crowded.
Important note: “EXP per kill duration” is a better metric than “EXP per HP”, because some mobs might have a higher EXP/HP ratio but is a Neutral type, so you can’t take advantage of elements. Again, it all boils down to instant (or almost-instant) kills.
To achieve instant kills, you’ll need to maximize your damage! The next several tips will teach you how to increase your damage.
Cook & Eat Gourmet food
What most players don’t realize is that the bonus stats, buffs and HP/SP dischage that Gourmet foods give are very efficient for their price! It’s very easy and cheap to cook foods, even cheaper than crafting, upgrading or buying gears in the short run.
Maxing your cooking and taste levels will also benefit you a lot:
- Higher Cooking/Cookbook levels = better cooking success rates
- Higher Taste levels = increases food stack limit
I highly recommend to start cooking and maxing your cookbook & taste levels as soon as you can.
Always buy ALL ingredients from the Rare Ingredients Shop too because of the daily limits. You will need LOTS of those eventually.
Here’s our complete guide on everything you need to know about cooking and eating gourmet food.
Know your enemy’s element, size and race
Sun Tzu once said in the Art of War: “if you know your enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.”
Just by knowing your enemy’s element, race and size and using their weaknesses accordingly, you can multiply your damage (and therefore your leveling efficiency) by double or even triple!
Use appropriate skills depending on your targets. For example, Menblatts and Steam Goblins are all Wind element which are weak against Earth skills like Heaven’s Drive and Land Mine. For physical attacker classes, use elemental converters or arrows. (Related: Elements Guide)
Different monster sizes are weak against certain weapon types:
|Claw / Knuckle||100||75||50|
Lastly, use cards that increase damage depending on your target’s race, element and size.
Enhance, Upgrade, Enchant & Refine your equips
Another way to increase your damage is by improving your gear’s stats through:
- Enhancing – from your bag using zeny, enhance up to your current level, transferrable to other items
- Refining – via Hollergrehnn, requires Ori/Elu, adds “+” to the item, gives “Refine” stats like Refine Atk or Refine MAtk
- Enchanting – via Cat NPC in Geffen, requires zeny or Mora Coins, gives random set of bonuses
- Upgrading – by clicking the red arrow in your item detail window, requires crafting materials, upgrades the item to higher Tiers (I, II, III, End tier)
Use Lightning Chain
The Lightning Chain item allows you to gain double EXP and drop rates by consuming Stamina two times faster.
You’ll want to activate it as much as you can, especially when you don’t have much time to play during the day to make sure you consume all your daily Stamina.
To maximize your Lightning Chain even more, eat Gourmet food and stat dishes along with it so you can kill more monsters faster during the Lightning Chain’s durations.
You can only use 7 Lightning Chains per week. VIP users don’t have that limit.
There’s lots of ways and tricks to gain experience and level up very fast. The cool thing about Ragnarok M is you can gain lots of levels even without doing anything!
