    This and all of the mastery achievements are for reaching level 99 with a character.

    The easiest way to go about this is by managing to pep up sylvando, jade, and the hero and using the pep power Electro Light. This has a chance to either spawn metal slimes on a good roll or robots otherwise. Pepping up the main hero is easy with the ability pep up, but the others you’ll have to either wait and fight mobs or farm pep pops/pips.

    Make sure to have Erik in the lineup and that he knows critical claim when doing this; it’s a guaranteed kill on even metal king slimes. For jade, using lightning thrust (guaranteed crit) will hit more often then not, and then the hero can hit a falcon slash and hope for a critical.

    For added benefit, its best to do this in the final labyrinth trial. Metal king slimes spawn naturally occasionally, which is 150k experience without having to use pep powers. You can also farm pep pops here on the gold grabbers (the slot machines).

    This took probably around 2 hours climbing from level 60ish, but not bad overall. When I was doing it, 2 liquid metal slimes and one metal king slimes gave about 2 levels to each character.

    Edit: Pep up is in the hero’s luminary tree, lightning thrust is in Jade’s spear tree, and critical claim is in Erik’s guile tree

    Apostle92627How do you get Electro Light and Critical Claim?

    NOTE: I'm in act 3.

    Edit: Nevermind. I found Critical Claim.

    LordSmorcThis is a really good strat, went from low 60s to 99 in about 3 hours. Once you get the hang of what to do you can do a metal slime fight every 5 minutes or so. If you have it you can give Erik the Meteorite Bracer for +100 agility, that way you can get your Critical Claim off before any of the slimes even get a chance to flee. My Erik had over 600 agility which I think helped a lot. Just defend until Sylvando and Jade are pepped up.

    Apostle92627This works best with Haulellujia and Dirge of Dundrasil.

    There is a quicker way of reaching level 99 for all characters.

    Starting from about 60, this took me less than an hour.

    You'll need one Pep Pip per battle from casino, quest rewards, crossbow completion, or mini medal exchange, put them on Sylvando. I recommend finding Prince Faris in his room in Gallopolis Castle, his quest is easy and gives 4 pep pips. Which should be enough to hit 70, and from then on they are replenished.

    Main Abilites: Hero - Pep Up (Luminary), Erik - Critical Claim (Guile)

    Two of these: Jade- Lightning Thrust (Spears), Serena - Thunder Thrust (Spears), Eight - Hatchet Man (Axes)

    1. Get Rab Erik Sylvando Jade and into pep and swap them out. Have the Hero use Pep Up when done. ( about 5 minutes spamming defend)

    2. Save your game!

    3. Start a random battle anywhere with a party of Hero, Erik, Jade, Sylvando

    4. Hero, Jade, Erik use Haulellujah for guaranteed drop + exp bonus (Jade is usually fastest)

    5. Swap Erik to Rab, Hero Pep Up, Sylvando uses a Pep Pip on Jade.

    6. Wait for the enemy Moves to conclude

    7. Hero, Jade, Sylvando use Electro Light to change the battle into a fight with 3 Metals (flee and reload if this fails)

    8. Swap Sylvando for Erik

    9. Rab uses Pep to force sleep the Metals

    10. Begin killing with critical abilities only

    Every 10 levels the encounter changes
    50: 3x Vicious Metal Slime: About 300k exp, Seed of Life from each
    60: 2x Vicious Metal Slime, 1x Liquid Metal, About 350k exp, Happy Hat from the Liquid
    70: 1x Vicious Metal King, 2x Liquid Metal, About 800k exp, Pep Pip from Metal King

    At 70+ the Metal King returns the Pep Pip you use. Before 70 you'll need to rely on any Pep Pips you have from quest rewards or 125000 tokens in Casino.

    Gain 4-5 levels per from 50-70, and like 7-8 from 70-99.

    Credit for this method goes to the excellent google docs spreadsheet which you can find here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1pGQGO9M_OLNstXbY45t1...#

    EYEHUNTER 42At about level 75, I did this perfectly, and only got about 552k exp.

    MahlergicThe XP boost from Haullelujah has a range. 800k is the average for 70 and above.

    FuuldrinI don't understand why this could get downvoted. This is by far the most efficient method, and it is clearly explained. Thumbs up from me!

    While the other guides certainly are good, i didnt want to have to deal with pre-pepping up characters, or certain pep powers on certain enemies. I just wanted to play the game.

    Here is what i did today to go from level 74 to 87 in 45 minutes.

    Party, Hero, Erik, Jade, and a healer. All except hero on auto battle.

    Travel post game to the trials area, and go to the 3rd trial. this will put you in the castle map (i cant recall the name) where it has 5 floors and you fly up between floors on a enemy bird.

    now, have Erics critical hit skill unlocked. I also had him equiped with knifes and Jade with Spears.

    Now, simply fight everything, every enemy, you will find that 1 of every 4-5-6 battles a large metal slime appears, well on auto fight, Eric will auto crit the slime and kill it, every time, unless the slime flees before Eric can attack. even Jade would auto crit it as well.

    every time you win a fight with this slime in it, you get around 150k Exp. now if you get lucky and your characters are pepped up, you get around 600-700k EXP. i didnt try to get them pepped up, i simply fought everything in sight.

    hope this helps.
