Ragnarok M: Eternal Love fast leveling tips

Now that Gravity’s Ragnarok M: Eternal Love (SEA) is on its Open Beta Testing phase, I’ve decided to give it a try since the Ragnarok franchise has been one of my favorite MMORPGs ever since I was a kid. If you are a beginner and are starting from square one, the game may seem a bit confusing due to the high number of things that you can do. Here are basic tips on how you can maximize leveling up your characters without spending a single dime. Check it out!


This is probably the most obvious tip amongst those in this guide. Story and side quests are scattered all over different parts of the map, especially in towns and cities. However, I suggest that you shouldn’t binge-quest all the way as there’s a more important game mechanic that comes into play in this game.

Saint equipment

The Fantasy Circus Generators contain gacha headgear, equipment, and cards that are good for beginners who don’t have high-powered weapons and armors yet. Aside from the powerful stats that each piece of equipment provides, there’s also an increase in Base EXP gain. You can find the generators near the South Gate of Prontera.

While technically these are premium items (you’ll need to buy cash shop currency to pull), the game is currently handing out free tickets to celebrate it’s Open Beta launch. So in the meantime, it’s still considered as a free method. Each gacha roll for the equipments require 10 pink tickets while the headgears cost 30 blue tickets.

You can get at least 30 pink tickets if you pre-registered by talking to Miu (found in the balcony near Prontera’s lower central area) while more than 30 blue tickets will be provided (will only last until December 1, 2018) by speaking to Tylin (found in the upper central area) and availing the Adventurer Bag reward daily for 5 days.

Monster Resistance Quest

The “Monster Resistance” quest provides 10x your normal exp gain when killing monsters per day. Yes, you read that correctly, you can take this “quest” when you reach level 22. The Messenger Monster Watcher NPC will be present in each main town that you visit so you don’t have to worry about finding him. The catch, however, is that there’s an exp threshold of the increased exp rate that the player can receive during the quest.

Note: The quest can be stackable up to 6 times which means users can stack up to three days worth of exp threshold.


This is arguably the most essential system in the game. Grinding monsters will take a lot of time but thanks to the Auto-Attack mechanic, that won’t be much of a problem. The catch, however, is that in order to prevent players from abusing grinding, Gravity implemented a Combat Time system. This system lets users receive normal exp and loot gain under a given time limit of combat. Reaching the limit and going beyond it will activate the system called Combat Fatigue which will gradually decrease the exp and loot rate over time on each character. Here are the rules:

  • When the specified daily combat limit is exceeded, the experience and loot rate will begin to decrease.
  • The combat duration is restored to 300 minutes at 5:00 AM (GMT +7) daily, and the unused combat duration can be accumulated up to a max of 600 minutes. (Maximum total: 900 min).
  • PVP is not included in the combat duration. MINI and MVP are not affected by the rules of loot reduction.
  • If you are in a team during the reduction period, you alone will be bound by the rules of reduction and your Party member will not be affected.
  • If you and your Party members are on the same map, the combat duration will be shared with all Party members in the map.
  • The Mentor who holds a valid Premium can earn 30% of the effective combat duration from different students, up to a maximum of 120 minutes of effective combat duration per day.

Reaching Combat Fatigue is a huge bummer for us players but, we can retrieve some of our Combat time just by listening to the Music Box located at the South Gate of Prontera. To activate it, just press the music box to open the track list. Activating the song will require you to stay in the area where you can hear the music. A maximum of 60 minutes can be recovered which should be plenty enough to grind once more before the day ends.

Note: Anyone can put in a song which can also be heard by everyone in the same area and channel.

Tip: I would rather exhaust my Combat Time first before doing any story-based and side quests, this is because the exp gain from quests isn’t affected by combat fatigue.

Lightning Chain

Lightning Chains are one of the essential boosting items in the game. Using this will amplify your EXP and loot gain as long as you don’t reach Combat Fatigue. You can purchase this in the Event Items shop, just under Miu’s position in Prontera, or acquire it by participating in event quests and rewards.

Tip: Use Lightning Chain when you decide to do the Monster Resistance quest to maximize the exp gain of your character.

Mission Board

Last, but not the least, is the Mission Board which gives tons of EXP. Players can get any posted quests in the board but they can only take up to 10 per day. Again, due to the Open Beta celebration, there are currently board quests that give out twice their normal rewards.

To give you a glimpse, here’s the order of how I do things daily:

  • Grinding (farming for materials) + Lightning Chain (Exhaust Combat Time)
  • Listen to Music Box
  • Grinding
  • Mission Board
  • Monster Resistance Quest
  • Questing

Updated as of 11/05/18.

Important Notes:

  • Daily reset happens every 5:00 AM (GMT +7)
  • Combat Time refreshes 300 minutes daily
  • Mission Board refreshes both in the morning and the afternoon
  • Monster Resistance can be taken up to 2 times daily
  • A lot of combinations can be made to suit your leveling routines so don’t be afraid to experiment to fit your taste.

And that’s it! I hope this boosts your leveling and grinding knowledge in the game. If you have more tips, tricks, and suggestions, leave them in the comments section below. See you in the game!

    The lightning chain seems to be bugged. As of now, it only increases my drop rate but not experience. Yes my combat time is still within 300mins.

    • Avatar for Zek Zek says:

      i think your having an exp penalty which is happened when your lvl is higher than the monster that your killing of, ex. your lvl50 and your grinding spot is around 20-30 you will be penalize for the gap. try to grind the same lvl as you are or not to have a big gap as yours

    Question about Auto Heal & SP Recovery.

    Very convenient kasi lalo na sa Time Rift pero may mga oras na ayaw mag Auto Heal & SP Recovery. Anong rules non?

    Lightning chain description:
    2x Exp (job and base)
    2x drop item
    2x combat time use (normal 5 hours, with LC 2.5 hours)

    Why dont u do mosnter resistance + lightning chain at first minute of combat time…
    You will have a lot of advantage:
    1. At 1st to 20th minute of combat time, you have ur highest exp
    2. Monster resistance will give u 10x times
    3. Lightning chain will give you 2x more exp

    And those 3 points are stackable
    Which mean u will have huge exp by doing those 3 things

    • Avatar for Golteb Golteb says:

      Eto talaga yung tama. Wag sundin yung exhaust muna yung stamina before the rest quests.

    • Avatar for Chowee Chowee says:

      so before ma reach yung limit ng combat time , you do monster resistance + lightning chain ? Or grind muna + lightning chain ???

    • Avatar for Zek Zek says:

      Tingin ko sayang ang chain lightning sa resistance kasi pabibilisin lng nito yung quest mo same amount parin total ng resistance na makukuha mo so kapag di kpa exhaust x2 rin kakainin sa combat time mo kung exhaust k nmn di gagana chain yun po pagkaka intindi ko po mga boss

    What iten is the best?? Saint items or craft items??

  7. Avatar for Marcky Marcky says:

    About the grind/farm + chain lightning, can I also add monster resistance quest? BUT the way im planning to use it is like this. For example, ill be crafting a weapon which has 3 ingredients. First, ill get a monster resistance quest then go to the first spot which has the first ingredient then use chain lightning. After chain lightning depletes and I reach the amount of first ingredient(or continue grind/farm until I reach the amount), ill go back to town and turn in the resistance quest and get it again then go to the second ingredient spot.

    Thank you very much for the tips!

    Would you happen to know if combat fatigue affects your exp/loot on Time Rifts?

    • Avatar for Vaughn Chua Vaughn Chua says:

      Hi Ed, it doesn’t affect your loots in the rift so it’s fine to do it when you exhausted your combat time 🙂
