Triangle Strategy Easy XP Guide: How To Level Up All Units Fast
Triangle Strategy is the latest HD-2D game from Square Enix. Despite being almost a sequel to Octopath Traveler, Triangle Strategy is a tactical RPG following in the footsteps of Final Fantasy Tactics and Fire Emblem. With a huge lineup and many challenging encounters, you’ll want to max out your units whenever possible. Here is how to earn XP in Triangle Strategy.
Simulation battles are an endless source of experience.
The best way to earn XP in Triangle Strategy is to participate in what the game calls mental fights. They can be found by talking to the bartender at your camp. These battles are non-story and exist for you to practice certain types of situations and enemies. The upside here is that while these battles don’t actually take place in the context of the story, any experiences and items gained are real. These battles can also be replayed endlessly, so you can earn as much experience as you want. New battles appear as you progress through the story, and each battle has a recommended level.
The way XP is distributed in Triangle Strategy is a little odd, but once you get the hang of it, you can use these Mock Battles to your advantage. If the unit’s level is below the level of the enemies it is facing or the recommended mission level, the amount of experience it gains will be increased. If the unit’s level exceeds the level for the scenario, they will receive a reduced amount. Units of the same level mean that the default amount of XP will be earned.
It takes 100 XP to level up. Low-level units will earn between 40 and 75 XP, depending on how low level they are. Units of the same level usually get between 10 and 15 XP, while leveling up means around 5 XP. XP is given for attacking an enemy, using an item or ability. This means that when trying to level up your units, constantly use their abilities if you can. Have healers heal units at full health and have support units use unnecessary buffs. Every action other than moving rewards earns XP, so your units always have to be doing something.
There is no permanent death in Triangle Strategy, and it doesn’t matter how many units die if you win the mock battle. Because of this, the best way to get your lower-level units up to par is to jump with them into the highest level training battle you can. You will quickly have more units than can be deployed in any battle in the Strategy Triangle, so at some point you will need to grind to get the whole roster ready for battle.
