1. Killing Enemies

  • Why I Chose This: You will easily be able to earn up to 5k XP from early-game enemies.

Farming monsters in the early game, especially the ones that have a purple health bar, will help you farm a lot of experience points. These monsters include Ogres that you can face near the Forgotten Settlements, as well as the Trolls found near lakes.

Besides that, Chimeras, Cyclops, and Rock Lizards can help you earn thousands of XP points. I recommend venturing through hidden areas around Vernworth and Melve to find these monsters.

  • Farming The Griffin: While exploring Melve, you will spot a Griffin near a tower. Defeating the monster will grant you 7000 XP and 200 discipline points. After resting at an inn or sitting at a nearby bench, you will be able to farm the Griffin again when it respawns.
  • Farming Monsters Near The Sphinx Shrine: monsters like Cyclops and Minotaurs near the Sphinx Shrine can drop around 5000 XP. They can also drop a large number of Ferrystones. You can also farm these monsters again when they respawn after you rest. Make sure to use the Medusan Spell Bow in order to obtain the maximum XP from these enemies.

2. Completing The Side Quests

  • Why I Chose This: Some side quests are very easy to complete and grant you a lot of XP.

During the early stages of Dragon’s Dogma 2, side quests are the best way to help you level up quickly. However, make sure to complete them as soon as you can because most of these side quests have a time limit.

Important: A quick way to earn XP is to get rid of all the pawns you have hired by dismissing them or killing them. Doing so will grant you a 20% boost in XP.

  • Taking on Side Quests In Melve: Both Vernworth and Melve have a lot of side quests for you to take on. But I will suggest completing the side quests in Melve first, as they are easier to complete.
  • Complete Side Quests With High XP: The best quests to complete in Melve to farm XP are Home Is Where The Hearth Is and Brothers Brave And Timid. Other great side quests include Vocation Frustration, Trouble On The Cape, The Ailing Arborheart, Every Rose Has Its Thorn, and A Game Of Wits.

3. Set Up Camping Sites

  • Why I Chose This: Setting up camps in specific areas will not only help you restore health but will also provide XP and stat boosts.

While you won’t be able to earn any XP by setting up campfires, you can get a significant amount of XP by resting or cooking food. These activities can provide you and your entire party with significant stat boosts.

  • Camping In Bakbattahl: the secret entrance to Bakbattahl serves as a great camping site where you can rest and kill bosses to gain XP. When you rest again, the bosses will respawn, and you can kill them as much as you want.
  • Camping In Battahl: Battahl is also filled with some of the best XP farming spots in Dragons Dogma 2. There is one near the secret entrance, but make sure you are at least level 20 before camping in this area.

My Experience When Farming XP

I found the fastest way to earn XP was by killing enemies like Ogres and Griffins. Just by killing Griffins alone, I could level up quickly in the early stages of the game. Thus, if you’re in the mood to speed up your progression, these are the enemy types I recommend searching for.
