  • Powerleveling Guide

    Powerleveling is basically the strategy of building up Energy and Stamina early on, at the expense of your attack, defense, and PVP effectiveness. On the plus side, you'd be leveling at a much faster rate, building up your rate of ingame cash earned, getting better equipment from Boss Hunting, and put yourself on the fast track to getting high-starred LT's (the free kind).



    There are different routes you can go with this (pure, hybrid, etc..), but I'm going to go through this in its purest form, so anyone can take what they want from it and pick the strategy that best fits their play-style.



    *WARNING*- If PVP is all that really matters to you, you want to keep great PVP stats, and you don't want to sacrifice early PVP effectiveness for, IMO, a higher potential for your character, then reading this guide will probably be a waste of your time. Move along, nothing to see here!



    1) Getting Started:

    No matter what build you plan on going with, it's in EVERYONE'S best interest to get Energy and Stamina each to 100. You refill 1 point per 5 minutes, so this would give you more than an 8 hour window to use Energy and Stam, before it's back to the max and starts to overflow; wasting your precious leveling fuel. So, unless you plan on waking up every few hours after going to bed to use up your Energy and Stamina, you'll be slowing down your leveling a great deal. Over time that wasted Energy and Stamina will really start to add up.



    As for Reputation goes, giving Respect in this order goes along best with this build:

    Mafia(Energy)>Cartel(Stamina)>Syndicate(Attack)>St reet(Defense).



    This order will help speed up your progress in powerleveling, and help make the transitions from Powerleveling to Boss Hunter, and from Boss Hunter to PVP the smoothest.



    2) Phase 1: Energy Pumping

    This is where you set the foundation of your build, and you'll reap the rewards for this investment for the LIFE of your character!

    As far as we know right now, there are no max refills for Energy or Stamina, but in Castle Age the max refill for Energy is 2000, so this is a good stopping point. Right now, free refills are hard to come by, but I expect the developers to create new ways to earn Favor. Whenever you use a refill, you will be getting great value out of them.



    The reason you hit Energy first, is it can be used in 5-starring all jobs (skip Dice Jobs for now), gaining extra Skill Points in the process. Right now there are about 70 Jobs through Italy, so you would have earned an additional 350 Skill Points through 5-starring Jobs!



    Also, all of those jobs earn you a ton of ingame cash that can be put into buildings, raising your hourly cash flow at a high rate.



    At this point, you have all Jobs 5-starred, probably making over $120k/hr, and most likely 1000-1500 energy. This is where you pick a Dice Job and use all Energy on it on each Levelup. I started with the Westside Dice Job because all of the LT's are pretty decent when high-starred. From these Jobs, you earn the different LT's at different rates, so what I'm doing is once I get one of the lower ones (Blink/Hector in my case) to 9-Stars, I'll be moving onto another Dice Job, even though Kate will probably be only around 6/7 Stars, so that I'm not wasting energy on earning extra Blink/Hectors that I'll have no use for. ***The developers plan on addressing this later on, to where something can be done with these extra LT's to get value out of it, but until I know for sure what they'll do about it, I'll move onto the next Dice Job to work on other LT's***



    Once they add new Areas with more Jobs, you'll be able to quickly 5-star them, and get back to the Dice Jobs. The earliest you get to this point, the better, as you'll be ahead of the game in getting your LT's high-starred, while those who stick with low energy won't ever realistically have this option without spending thousands of dollars on Favor.



    If going purely Powerlevel, by the end of this stage, your stats should look like this:



    Attack- 1

    Defense- 1

    Energy- 2000

    Stamina- 100



    Don't worry, it's not as bad as it looks. By this time, you're total Attack and Defense will be much higher than this (around 600 each) thanks to high-starred LT's and decent equipment earned from Boss Hunting. You'll still be very squishy for your level, but you can always help take out the "low hanging fruit" in Empire Battles, or even better, focus on demolishing buildings if you're using the Heavy Weapons Class (the best class to get the most out of this build).



    3) Phase 2: Stamina Pumping

    So you're getting high-starred LT's and high cash flow, so what's next? Stamina, and lots of it.



    The refill limit for Stamina is 1000 in Castle Age, so this is probably the stopping point that makes the most sense. I would stop here until we've heard more from the Devs on their plans for refill limits.



    With high Stamina, you keep up your leveling speed as you level, while giving yourself the chance to get some solid equipment off of Bosses, setting yourself up to become a powerful Boss Hunter in the next Phase.



    Right now, you can get Duke (3x Stamina used on Boss Attack) off of Crates and use him when close to levelup with the max Stamina attack (40 Stam) to get a nice headstart on the next level.



    Idealy, your stats should look like this at the end of this Phase:



    Attack- 1

    Defense- 1

    Energy- 2000

    Stamina- 1000



    4) Phase 3: Boss Hunting

    NO MORE ENERGY! NO MORE STAMINA! If you've made it this far without quitting, give yourself a gold star! Lol.



    The term Boss Hunting does the results at the end of this Phase injustice. You will be a major force in multiple Boss Battles at a time, with the capability of getting all of the best equipment in the game. By the time you get this far, the developers will probably add ways to earn Favor more easily from Boss Battles, and you'll be ahead of the game.



    How high you go with Attack will depend on your PVP goals. I think 1000 Attack will be more than high enough (to go along with your 1000 Stamina) to get all of the top equipment from Bosses, so that's a decent benchmark to set if you want a more well-rounded PVP build. If you're an Enforcer or regularly placed in a Defender slot in Empire Battles, I'd stop at 1000 Attack and move onto Defense until you're happy with you're ability to bounce attacks. If you're a Sniper, Assassin, or Heavy Weapons Class, or are usually placed in an Offensive Slot towards the back row, you may want to go crazy with Attack and bring it straight to 2000 or even 3000. By the time enemies get to you in the back row, you've already crippled them. Keep in mind you'll be significatly higher level than most you go up against by this time, so you can throw BSI out the window. Even with a 1 Defense, "Glass Cannon" build, your high-starred LT's and elite equipment will more than make up for it. At this point, it makes sense that you should have at least 1000 (probably much more) additional Attack and Defense from equipped LT's and Equipment ALONE.



    By the end of this phase, your stats should look something like this:



    Attack- 1000-3000 (depending on PVP Class and Use)

    Deffense- 1

    Energy- 2000

    Stamina- 1000
    Each It And I- B5DBB9
    Mist Knights

    Phase 3:
    Level- 1010
    Energy- 2000
    Stamina- 1000
    BSI- 3.01

    Re: Powerleveling Guide

    5) Phase 4: PVP God

    At this point you can Attack and beat pretty much anyone your level, since anyone who got as high a level as you probably also started out Powerleveling, and those who didn't are probably around 800 levels lower than you. You're only weakness is defending similar builds, who also have high-starred/Elite LT's. 1000 Defense is probably as high as you'll ever need to go without getting farmed/chained ever being a problem for you (factoring in Attack, LT's, and Equipment). If you're used as a defender, which you should be with how high your stats are anyway, you may want to eventually take Defense to 2000, but I'm thining after Defense hits 1000, the reward for adding more Attack is greater because not only will it make you a better Boss Hunter and Attacker in PVP (no one will want to get on your bad side), but you should be able to bounce most attackers anyway.



    This strategy will take awhile to even get to Phase 3, until they add new methods of speeding up leveling and/or farming Favor, but if you plan on playing for over a year, you'll be glad you went this route. An added bonus is that if you plan on spending ANY money on Favor for Refills, you're getting a lot more value out of it than if you only had 100-200 Energy/Stamina, which makes it a hell of a lot easier/cheaper to rank high in events like the Pirate Booty event. Patience is the key. If you're OK with sucking in PVP (compared to anyone close to your level) for a good 6-9 months (depending on how much Favor used, if any), this is the most efficient way to build.

          Very interesting thread. Not sure which phase you are in already. I'm a hybrid build at level 286. If I would to push all the way for energy to 2000 now, I think I need to level another 300 levels. Yet to mention stamina .. It's a looooong journey for me.

            At this point I have a 5 star Kate, 8 star Hector, and 7 star Blink from the Westside dice job. Kate and Blink are also pretty close to their next stars.

              Each it and I, nice guide i'm also at 2000 energy and I did confirm with the dev that the limit for this game is suppose to be already implemented at 2000/1000 but there might be a bug for now. So I would stay at 2000/1000 and not go over.

                Getting the high starred LT is definitely very appealing. Better than rolling crate to me which I do not seem to have luck at. I'm going to keep pumping my energy level now. Thanks for the guide!!

                      New people, if you can't afford any refills I wouldn't recommend going to the extremes Each has put forward, but this pure LSI build is very effective if you can spend money atleast weekly. In the end pure LSI builds and hybrid builds even out in the long run while heavy core BSI builds are usually left in the dust.

                        Refills definitely speed up the process, but spending every week isnt necessary. I save up ALL free refills and favor from scratchers and achievements, only buy favor for promos and during events. All refills are saved for events.

                        This is important bc as you get higher level, it will take more to level, even if you've added everything to energy and Stamina. If you've added everything to energy and Stam, the lower your level, the likely you'll be able to level with every refill used.

                        This was key for me in finishing top 10 in the two events bc every refill I used leveled me up, so 1 refill was worth twice my energy to me (4000 energy for the last event).

                        I think I'd go the same route, even if I wasn't spending on refills at all, but mostly bc it keeps me more interested in the game if I have alot more energy and Stam at my disposal.

                              If its anything like the Castle Age Arena the build won't matter. It will be all about who can spend all day clicking and spending on token refills.

                              Even if this was an issue, it wouldn't matter bc energy based events are just a bonus to your refills (you're using the favor on refills anyway, why not get extra credit for it?).

                              If the next few events will be Arena types, then that just means I'll have a great deal more saved up for the next energy based event than before.
