# 1 Fast leveling for new toon?
08-08-2012, 07:24 AM
Hi guys,

quick question, I am leveling up a new fed toon (I currently have 4 Fed & 1 Klink) and I really want to level it up fast.

Which way would you recommend to do this?
Playing the story lines missions as fast as possible?
Doing the dull patrol missions, accumulate a lot of them and then swallow a 1 hour bonus pill and reclaim all of them at the same time?

Any other way which I am not familiar?

Thank you very much for your shared thoughts.

When Mirror event is up, you can lvl pretty fast, but doing story line missions is working fine, too. You might buy a 8 Hour Skill bonus pool on exchange.

Played time or played days?
If played time is your concern: DOFF assignments and Mirror Events.

If played days, classic episodeplay (each mission grants roughly half a level), use all Mirror Events you can get. Usually you should hit 50 before having the epsiodes which take rather long playtime (in comparison).
Evade any kind of Fleet missions and always have 20 DOFF assignments running.

Thank you for your feedback, it is what basically I am doing now.

You know, I was not able to find any 8 hours boost on the exchange, only 1 hour ones...

Thanks again!

The mirror can be a great way to level, once you rack up enough levels you can skip missions and then play them all back to back without turning them in and when you have a lot of finished missions to turn in use a skill booster and turn them all in at the same time to earn loads of extra skill points, preferably turn them in with a 1 hour booster just before you run the mirror event again so as not to waste it.

Kerrat is also a suprisingly good way to level. Prbes give about 50 xp, spheres 300, and cubes can be over 500. At about lvl 20 or 30, it is a good option, as you can hit a level for half an hour in kerrat.
When in doubt, (hehe) c4!

Make sure you take full advantage of the DOFF system as well when you get to the higher levels as that can cut a lot of time off your leveling process. I think I leveled from 45 to VA in maybe 2 days just logging in and turning in DOFF missions while working on my other characters and just recently took my science captain from 31 to 40 in the span of 3 days just logging in and turning in her DOFF missions and then signing up for another 20. If a Borg Invasion distress signal is up you can jump in those to. Win or lose the XP is great.

I would think buying one of those bonus xp award thingies off of the exchange would be a plus. They're fairly cheap.

What I usually did and before this season came out, I had leveled 5 toons. What I did is get to the minimum level in game to get doffs. I then leveled the rest of the way with doffing and mirror universe. What I also did is had one of my one hour skill bonuses and used it in the mirror universe. I usually went at least 2 levels every time there was a mirror universe.

I agree with this post.

Do story missions fast, mirror when its available.

You can find skill bonuses drop in exloration clusters, so it's always worth scanning some anomalies when that event is up too. (although this want give direct xp)

Do you have a fleet and fleet members that could rush you through the story missions?
