How to Level Up Fast

This is a guide to level grinding in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity (HW:AoC) for the Nintendo Switch. Read on to learn the best methods for leveling up, as well as the best stages, and the max level for characters in Age of Calamity.

How to Level Up Fast

Replay Challenges

HW:AoC - Mastering Remote Bombs Challenge
Challenges can be unlocked as you progress through the story, with several challenges for specific character. Lots of enemies appear in these stages, making it easy to farm tons of EXP. In combination with weapons that have EXP bonuses, this becomes an easy way to quickly level up your character.

Also, thanks to the fact that there are no cutscenes like in story battles, challenges is the fastest way to gain EXP, with each taking around 2-3 minutes to complete.

Take on Stages with Lots of Enemies

It's important that the stage you choose is one where lots of enemies appear. Rather than skipping all of the smaller enemies to complete the mission, defeat as many as you can when completing these stages for easy EXP.

Equip a Weapon with Battle EXP Bonus

HW:AoC - Battle EXP Weapon
You can increase the EXP gained from battles by equipping a weapon with a Battle EXP weapon skill. These weapons can be obtained randomly by completing challenges and battles.

However, if you equip these skills onto your main weapons, then you will be unable to equip more powerful skills that increase your damage, so we highly recommend having two main weapons: one for normal battles (with powerful skills), and another specifically for training (with skills for gaining EXP).

Increase other characters' levels at the Military Training Camp

The Military Training Camp allows you to use rupees to level up your characters to the level of your strongest character. After you've saved up a lot of rupees, you can simply focus on leveling up one character, then pay rupees to get your weaker characters up to the same level.

Best Battles for Level Grinding

Recommended Early Game Stages

Stage Recommended Level
Mastering Remote Bombs Level 4
ExplosiveーHandle With Care Challenge Level 6
Link: One-Handed Weapons
Note: Link Only Stage
Level 10

In the early game, we recommend playing through ExplosiveーHandle With Care Challenge repeatedly to farm EXP. 500 or more small enemies appear, and you can quickly eliminate them via bombs, making it a super easy stage for grinding.

Age of Calamity Max Level (Level Cap)

Max Level: 100

Unlike the previous Hyrule Warriors game, where the level cap was at level 255, the max level obtainable in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is at Level 100. This information was obtained through extensive level grinding by our own walkthrough staff, and we can say with certainty that you cannot level up past level 100.

After reaching the level cap, the only way to make a character stronger would be by completing their quests to give them more combos, and by upgrading their weapon to its max level (weapons have a level cap of 30).
