Hello, and welcome to my guide. This is a somewhat known trick, but I don't see many people publicly announcing it or anything. So I wanted to post a guide to show everyone, including the newbies, on how to level up really fast from as little as 18 till 24! This little trick I have is called speed running. Speed running, is basically completing the dungeon as fast as you can without picking up anything (to get as much exp/min as possible). You can get around 50k exp every 3-4 minutes! That's pretty good exp! Lets get started..
So to begin, I might as well tell you what we are going to run yes? Yes... We are going to do Astral Coven Laboratory. Why? Astral Coven Laboratory is easily one of the easiest places to clear super fast no matter what difficult you are in even as solo! You will be running this dungeon on master solo( abyss takes too long to sol with level 16 eq). Before we say discuss this any further, I would like to set some Recommendations before you do this
1) Have a Health pool of 4k or higher.
2)Know how to dodge (so you don't get slowed by hits from spider web attack!)
3) Have an magic or physical attack(depends on class) of 400 or higher(so you kill things somewhat efficiently)
4)Do all the commissions for Astral Coven Laboratory first. (You need to do it all in order to unlock the master commission)
5)Be prepared to grind for a while...
note: these are just recommendations... You can do it at with 50 attack or w/e if you really wanted to or w/e but don't expect to level fast.
Okay, if you have all those then you should be ready to do Astral Coven! If you don't know where Astral Coven is then i'll tell you.. Heading out of Caderock pass, go crystal stream valley and go to the bridge and take a right to the portal. After loading page, keep going straight and that portal takes you there! (watch out that you don't do orc camp lmao).
Before I start, some of you might be wondering why do Astral Coven Laboratory run instead of (insert name of dungeon here). Like i said earlier, Astral Coven is fastest to clear in the least amount of time. You get 19k exp from quest and around 30k from doing the whole dungeon itself. It can easily be done in 3-4 minutes, and drops are somewhat good. ( only get onyx)
Now that I have that clear lets get started!
okay 1) Get the master commission for Astral Coven Laboratory
( I put that picture so you can see how much exp you get exactly
2)) Enter dungeon on Master difficulty
3) Only kill big spiders in order to advance through portals (Kill them like it's your life! Only pick up the crude onyx if you have to /want to )
4)Get to boss and kill kill kill him ASAP. Forget about other spiders because if you kill boss then the spiders go away right after.
5) When done... Press return to closest field and turn in commission.
6) Repeat steps 2-5 two to three more times..
7)Return to town, sell the pouches or w/e u picked up(not crudes) and go back to step one till your desired level
It's really easy beating this dungeon in 3-4 minutes, you just need to know your class somewhat and know what kills monsters the fastest! Warriors can be good here because they have dash (faster). Acro's are good here because they are quick. Ele's for aoe. Other classes are meh here since they don't kill as fast as the above (unless you have good armor :p )
Here's me clearing the dungeon in like 3 minutes.
You should get a level up every 30-45 min or so... Maybe an hour tops. Remember, the main objective here is about speed!
Here's a video of me (my friend is recording me, I'm the one killing
Now you know the secret on how your friends level up so fast.. Get to 24 and be one of them already haha! Good luck leveling my friends!

i believe you should do nexus the quest give 38k and the dungeon it self give around 28k exp
You can't do that till that one till 22, and at level 22 you don't even have that much attack to finish it fast enough. You seriously finish Astral faster and can probably do it in 1/2 the time than Nexus making astral still better exp.
