Early Game EXP Farming Guide

I show you how to Farm XP Efficiently in the early Game.


Oceanic Quest (Skandalia Lighthouse)

Etrian Odyssey III HD: Meregho Saeno

If you want to gain EXP early in the game, the easiest way is to defeat this quest boss “Meregho Saeno." It is effective from your level 7 to about level 25, providing more EXP than the enemies found on the 6th basement floor. Defeating this quest boss is relatively easy and allows you to earn money at the same time. Moreover, if you manage to defeat the boss with its arms bound, it will drop a rare item that can be sold for 500 en. It is recommended that you equip three Lucky Chokers and attempt to defeat the boss with its arms bound if you have a Warrior or Wilding in your party. If you are having trouble defeating the boss in the 1st Stratum or facing difficulties advancing in the 2nd Stratum, consider defeating this boss repeatedly to gain EXP. 

The disadvantage of this method is that only a maximum of four party members can participate in a battle at a time. Additionally, the EXP gained from the Oceanic Quest does not contribute to Combat Study. Therefore, members with the Combat Study skill who are waiting in the Guild will not receive any EXP.
