Various methods can be used to level-up your characters during the course of the game.
In certain parts of the main story quests, you will encounter people being attacked by monsters. If you successfully rescue them, you will receive extra EXP for your rescue. Each of the locations that a traveler will be attacked is fixed, so look out for a blue icon on your map for people that might require assistance nearby.
Defeating Metal Slimes
Metal Slimes can usually be found in the Cretia region. You can spot them on the map with their distinctive shine. Using spells isn’t recommended when dealing with Metal Slimes, so you’ll have to take them on using physical attacks with weapons.
Defeating Stray Metal Slimes
You can still opt to help travelers for even more EXP at this stage. The merchant that appears near the Stone Monument (F7) of Ihrim Snowfield is a good one to note. Rescuing the merchant gets you 6000 EXP.
Space-Time Labyrinth “Labyrinth of Protection”
In this labyrinth, you will encounter many enemies coming out from both sides of the area. Using ranged attacks against them is an easy to grind some EXP.
Defeating Metal King Slime
Defeating Metal King Slime in the Forest of Darkness and Canyon of Darkness yields a considerable amount of EXP during the late stages of the game. Just check your map for their distinct shine from time to time.
Defeating the Roseguardin
The Roseguardin at Rao Wasteland alone yields 20,000 EXP when defeated. They are also quite abundant in Rao Wasteland, making them good targets for grinding EXP. Spells are recommended against them, as they have very high physical defense (in addition to carrying a shield).
