    What do you mean grind levels 1-10 until +10/+10? Do you mean repeat the levels until you’re at +10/+10? Or that you should be at +10/+10 after the first run through?

    • Accomp Accomp says:

      You’ll grind floors 1-10 (Reset after each clear) until your aetherpool armor and weapon are both +10ish. You could even do this until +15 if you wanted to, since it’s fast.

    What is the thought process behind only using floors 51-60 for leveling? I have only had struggles with groups passing floors 41-50 & 91-100. Is using floors 51-90 also a viable leveling strategy?


    • Accomp Accomp says:

      I actually did a good bit of research from feedback on folks on that exact question, mostly because I was curious myself. The idea is that 51-60 appears to be the sweet spot for a healthy balance of speed, difficulty, and exp curve. So with the idea that you gain more exp the higher the floor (curve), only when finishing the floors (speed), at a very low difficulty – yields that exp per hour seems to be most efficient when grinding 51-60.

    Do you get xp for the clear only ( i.e. Floors 51-60 completed) or does the number of monsters killed figure in to your final tally once you clear?

    • Izu says:

      You only get experience for the clear. The number of monsters killed has no bearing on your experience at the end of the PotD

    How do you repeat groups of 10 floors and still get exp from them? Do you defeat the boss and then abandon the duty?

    […] require any gear. Please note, PotD leveling is not very efficient from levels 60-70. Refer to my Palace of the Dead Leveling Guide for more on leveling […]
