# 1 Quick levelling tipe in 8.5?
02-18-2014, 07:22 AM
Just got a new sci Rom to Commander, as I recall the admiral levels were a bit of a slog, any tips on rapid collection of XP within 8.5?

I want the character to lvl 50 in time for the bonus marks event to help with the rep grind. I think I need lvl 50 before being allowed into the rep system, I haven't done a new character for 18 months so forget the details.

when leveling first skip the newer (featured) episodes: Devidian Front, The Vault, Temporal Ambassador and do the older ones first. As soon as you hit level 40-45, go back and do the above missions - the reason is: on higher levels they reward much more experience than the older ones available (like e.g. cardassian front).

if its a fed char go for patrol missions.. just fly through a sector and make all of them. Try to outfit your ship with good lvl appropriate items to make it faster

I think you can do some of the rep starting at 44, you can't start projects but can do the STFs maybe (non elite?).

My advice is to skip the ghosts (drozna station series) more or less entirely, that is a big slowdown with a lot of tedious ground combat and runaround. If you get behind the curve and cannot accept the next good missions, do a fleet alert or defense of the empire or similar things. At the most you will be 1-2 levels behind, easily made up. You are a rom.. gear your ship out for damage and the empire defense lasts like 10 min, gets 1440 dil & half a level each if you kill fast...

STFs do not give much exp. If you want to blow up borg, do the red alerts.

I wasn't even trying to level and got 40-50 at about an hour or so a day. I was trying to bump up dilithium and get my free ship.

1x event mission (currently step b. stars) 20 min
1x q mission 5 min
1x academy quiz 30 sec
1x defera run. 20 min.

10-20 Doff missions each day ~ 5 min.

That plus the odd red alert or even fleet queue mission got me there in ohh, I think it was about a week or so.

Jolan tru!
