This is a guide on how to increase your level quickly in Final Fantasy IX (FFIX, FF9). Keep reading for tips and necessary skills and abilities to make your grind less painful!
Our goal is one of the more powerful enemies in the game, the Grand Dragon, which provides a large amount of EXP to boost your levels.
Before we can start farming, we will need a couple of abilities to aid us.
Your party setup does not matter as long as you have Quina with you. As your goal is to level up everyone in your party, periodically changing out members is recommended. This will also contribute to the dragon kills required to power up Freya's Dragon's Crest ability. Optionally Ability Up can be equipped as well if you wish to grind out abilities at the same time.
What we want to do now is head to Popos Heights, which can be accessed via Chocobo, Airship, or through Gizamaluke's Grotto. Once there we can begin our farm.
Enter a battle, which will always be a Grand Dragon, and quickly skip over to Quina if they are not the first to act. As fast as you can, get into Quina's Blue Magic and smash that LV5 Death button. If all goes well, this will instantly kill the Grand Dragon without any casualties on your side. Enjoy your easy EXP, AP, and Gil!
