Worthwhile Battlecraft Leve ListFollow

This is an attempt to identify the most efficient battlecraft levequests to leve-link. If you grinded through leves with 5-15 people before, you’ve probably realized that the maximum amount of skill points you can earn is 1 submitter + 3 leve-links. In terms of pure skill point value, most levequests are not even worth the effort while linked due to travel and/or overall number of mobs. This list is to ensure you are not wasting your Guardian Aspects, identify if a leve is worth abandoning, or even just to see a change of pace in different areas. Please add any inputs, and I’ll update the list. If possible, prioritize and list approximate SP earned with a full leve-link (Guardian Aspect?/Your Rank/Difficulty ). The numbers may be off due to various factors, but an estimate is better than nothing. I am only confident of the levequests offered in Thalanan and would like to try out new areas myself. If I have ?, it means still confirming or waiting for more input.

Rank 20

Camp Horizon (Thalanan)
(1) The Devilet Inside

Camp Bloodshore (La Noscea)
(1) Escape from Cell B17


Rank 30

Nophica’s Wells (Thalanan)
(1) Necrolos: Levinshower (5000 SP - GA / R45 / 5 star)

Cedarwood (La Noscea)
(1) Necrologos: Lightsome Verdure (6000SP - GA / R49 / 5 Star)

Cassiopeia Hollow (La Noscea)
(1) Necrologos Inferno (5000SP - GA / R49 / 5 Star)

Mun-Tuy Cellar (Black Shroud)
(1) Necrologos: Moons Mistress (6000SP - GA /R48 / 5 Star)


Rank 40

Camp Broken Water (Thalanan)
(1) Dunesfolk for Dinner (8000 SP - GA / R45 / 3 star)
(2) Necrolos: Ranine Reveries (6000-10000 SP - GA / R45 / 4 star)
(3) All Cracked Up (4000 SP - GA / R45 / 4 star)

Camp Iron Lake (La Noscea)
(1) Great Hoary Toads

Max. Leve-Link is 1+4, not 1+3. We tested it in our group several times, SP doesnt rise anymore after 4 links.

Then, your SP on Ranine Reveries is a bit off. On a 1+3 with GA, 4 Star and R45 you will get between 8-10k average.
Then "Dining for Dunesfolk" is called "Dunesfolk for Dinner".

And now to my actual contribution to the thread ;)

Rank 30

Cedarwood(La Noscea)
1.) Necrologos: Lightsome Verdure(6000SP - GA / R49 / 5 Star)

Cassiopeia Hollow(La Noscea)
1.) Necrologos Inferno(5000SP - GA / R49 / 5 Star)

Mun-Tuy Cellar(Black Shroud)
1.) Necrologos: Moons Mistress(6000SP - GA /R48 / 5 Star)

Rank 40

Treespeak(Black Shroud)
1.) Rockbound Mists(3500SP - GA /R45 /3 Star)

Moons Mistress is by fat the best of all though, cause it regularly glitches.

I'm with the OP on levin shower. Even a couple of people can do that on 5* once you start pushing up towards level 30. On the other hand I hate Adamantine Wills. While you do get to kill one holy **** of a lot of mobs, they don't generate THAT much SP and the time wasted running back and forth not to mention wiping the Djiggas and mitelings in the middle hardly make it worthwhile. You cold generate more SP just smacking down iron cobs for 30 mins solo

Rank 20:

Horizon: The Devilet Inside
Bloodshore: Escape from Cell B17


The above are not as good as the R30/R40 ones, but they're the best of R20. Even at rank 40, I still get 200+ SP a kill doing these on 5 stars and linking with another friend (without GA).


Rank 40:

Iron Lake: Great Hoary Toads

Stealing Apples from A Lemur at Treespeak can be decent but unlike most of the other Find X of Y or Obtain 5 Pages leves it's a lot more hit/miss.

That list lacks one of the best leves in the whole game right now. Mun Tuy cellars, Moons Mistress.
Plus that guide also says its 1 submitter + 3 links, although I tested it with my leve static several times, the max amount of links is 1+4, SP still rises from 1+3 to 1+4, it stops at that at 1+5 though.

Negrologos: Inferno - Rank 30 leve, Cassiopeia Hollow - has the most god awful drop rate in the history of leves. You have to run around the hollow killing slugs (which have an annoying AoE amnesia move), the mob groups are spread far apart, and they never drop the pages. I can't tell you how many times I've "timed out" on this leve attempting it solo, not because of multiple deaths but because they just don't drop the pages.

Now I guess if you are just SP farming via level links in a large group and you don't care about completion, or actually fail the leve on the last mob on purpose, then this is probably the best possible type of leve for linking.

What characteristics make a leve ideal for linking? I assume it's a leve that has lots of mobs to grind on and actually lasts more than 3 minutes with minimal travel / running time? If there are other criteria let me know. But Necrologos: Inferno seems to be the best possible leve I can think of for leve link in large group.

Inferno is the same thing as Levinshower and Lightsome Verdure. Most of the time there are about 10 pairs of mobs before you get all 5 pages. Sometimes it can go up to 14 pairs though so it may feel like forever before you get all pages.

This list is identical to the one I have been working on since Christmas.

That saddens me actually. I came in here hoping to find some more "decent" R40s.

The link to Lodestone also lists Thousandfold Agony which is terrible compared to all 5 of the other Necrologos listed. The run is far (not as far as Adamantine Wills) but the monkeys also give like 50% less SP for no apparent reason. I wouldn't recommend it take up too much of your time.

I wrote that list on lodestone awhile ago so it's definitely outdated.

OP's post is pretty much spot on. All we ever do these days are the 3 leves at camp BW in the interest of saving on travel time and anima. While some other camps have good leves, BW is the only camp with multiple good leves.

Dunes is by far the best leve out there.
