I had to use an Aion leveling guide to make sure I complete every hidden quest in this game, as quests aren’t so numerous in Aion: Tower of Eternity. After you pass level 20, each level has its share of grinding, so, if you don’t like spending some time killing mobs, then maybe Aion isn’t the game for you. However, I’m going to show here, a few spots for Elyos grinding that should make things easier for any player that chose the radiant and warm faction of the game.
As I said, I’ve been following the quest path of an Aion leveling guide, but when the quest ran out, I had to grind. But since this rigorously made quest path has taken me to unknown corners of the game, I’ve found a few great grinding spots. So, here are 3 of them.
1. The easiest things to kill that I’ve found to kill for level 22-25 were the Avaricious Zombies located in Theobomos. You can find loads of them near Theobomos Ruins, a little to the South-West from the middle of the map. Not only they will give you nice XP, they also drop nice loot. While grinding on them I got a pair of Life Chain Gloves, blue item which I sold for 500k Kinah.
2. For levels 31-34, I’ve found quite a squishy species of mobs, in Eltnen. The spot is located somewhere South-East from Agairon Village. The mobs here are bird-like creatures, called Virago Robbers. The loot is not extremely rich, but these mobs die very easily, so you will have a fast progress grinding on them. Also it’s easy to grind here with every class.
3. The 3rd spot is in Verteron, to the South-West, at Cantas Coast. There are some pirate ships here and many elite level 19 Krall mobs. However, this is not the spot for any class. For example, an Assassin will get his butt kicked here and lose time, but with a Spiritmaster you can solo them nicely as they are kiteable. Even if you spend a little time killing one mob, you’ll get a nice 16-20k XP, depending on your level.
Now, these spots I’ve learned about by following this excellent Aion leveling guide are not within the Abyss, as you may see. So, you don’t have to worry too much about getting attacked by Asmodians. But, if you want solid XP, at least after you reach level 25 and finish you Abyss Attunement Quest Chain, I strongly recommend you to go to the Abyss.
The Balaur mobs within the Abyss give enhanced XP compared with the creatures found in other Elyos areas, plus they grant you Abyss Points, Kinah and nice loot. But, if you choose the Abyss to grind, it’s important to always keep a low profile so you won’t get attacked by Asmodian because otherwise, a grinding session can end up with a lot of frustration instead of “phat” XP.
I hope the spots and tips I’ve shared here were helpful enough to any Elyos player. However, for anyone that wants to enhance their leveling process in Aion Online, I strongly recommend the Aion leveling guide that I’ve been working with. It has a great questing and grinding path designed to help even the most unexperienced Elyos player.
