Leveling is the process of gaining experience levels for you and your tamed Creatures. Leveling up gives either you or your creature better statistics and unlocks Engrams. Players can level up 154 times, while creatures can level up 73 times (88 times with X-Creatures and Genesis: Part 1-exclusive Creatures, and any Creature in Single Player). Once you or your creature has reached this limit, you will not be able to level up anymore.

Leveling Methods[edit | edit source]

There are actually four methods of leveling: Harvesting, Crafting, Hunting and Tribe Work.

  • Harvest: Typically 'Harvesting' gains very small experience when picking by hand. Tools that give more resources when used give a little more exp.
  • Crafting: is experience that is gained by making items or building structures. The more resources that are needed in an Engram to craft something, the more experience that is gained. Crafting is alternatively the Peaceful method of leveling and can compete with the Hunting method. However, gaining the materials by harvesting can make it very repetitive, whereas hunting sometimes calls for creative strategies.
  • Hunting: is the experience gained by killing. The range of amount of experience received depends on what is slain. Ranging from non-dangerous creatures such as Dodo and Coel to dangerous creatures such as Titanosaurus to a Giga; the higher the level and the more dangerous the dinosaur, the greater the amount of exp received, and it's vice-versa for the less dangerous creatures, where they give lesser amounts.
  • Tribe Work: is the bonus experience gained by nearby tribemates gaining experience from any method.

Peaceful Leveling You may not feel ready or comfortable to take on violent/killing methods for leveling. This is what peaceful leveling is for.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

If you don't feel confident to fight large groups of wild dinos or other creatures, then crafting is effectively a safe way to level up.

Note that this method will only level the player. The only exception is if a tribe-mate crafts things nearby and you are either riding a mount or carrying a small creature, then both you, the tribe-mate and the tamed creatures will benefit from the shared xp-gain.

Early game, you can gather large amounts of Fiber and craft Cloth Armor continuously, to build a couple of levels and whenever the Spear engram is unlocked then do the same.

Mid-game, you will gain levels by crafting the general structures such as floor Foundations needed for a Shelter or Base. Another advice that may help since the Wooden Raft engram calls for large amount of resources, crafting it gives typically more experience compared to basic structures.

Late-game, the crafting method of leveling can become very tedious to players who don't prefer to build, so it is recommended to move onto the killing or hunting method.

Violent Leveling[edit | edit source]

There are many ways to gain experience and level up. One way to do this is hunting dinosaurs. At first, you may want to stick to easier herbivores, such as Diplodocus or Moschops. If you are willing to take on a Bronto you can gain quite a lot of XP, if you succeed in killing it. Two other dangerous herbivores that have good exp is the Triceratops and Therizino Until you get to that point, stay away from them.

Now, if you tame yourself a powerful dino, consider fighting larger carnivores, such as Rex and Carno. These dinosaurs will give you quite the amount of experience compared to smaller creatures like the Dilo and Raptor. Just make sure you're ready for the challenge, because these will not be easy until mid-late game.

Alphas and Brutes[edit | edit source]

Alpha Creatures should not be underestimated. These beasts will tear you apart in minutes, or even seconds. However, if you are powerful enough to take them down, they grant massive amounts of experience, and if you're lucky, some high quality drops. Especially in endgame, Alpha Creatures are the way to go. Do not fight them if you are not ready. You will most likely lose your dinosaur, your life and all of your items. The risk to take is your decision.

Dead Island (The Island)[edit | edit source]

The Dead Island can be just as dangerous as the Alpha Creatures. Carno, Raptor, Pulmonoscorpius, Sabertooth and Argentavis spawn in bulk. The occasional Rex also can be seen fighting large amounts of predators. Rarely, but possible, you will see Alphas here. It is suggested you go level up a little on the main island before traveling over here. Traveling to The Dead Island can be a challenge. You will most likely need a Wooden Raft. Craft one of those, place your dinosaur on the raft, and drive over. You can do this, or, for the medium-small creatures, you can use either an Argentavis or Quetzal to fly them over. Be wary as you're leveling, your bird may get attacked, use this plan at your own risk. However, if you use a Raft, be aware that there is a chance that your Raft can be attacked - and highly probable that it will be destroyed - by a Alpha Leedsichthys.

Levels and Ascensions[edit | edit source]

You can level your survivor up to level 105 by default. Clearing the Tek Cave on The Island, defeating Rockwell at Aberration, beating Master Controller at Genesis and leveling 1 Chibi-Pets gained from events will further increase the maximum level of the Survivor, as per stated below Character Levels. Each level gives you a skill point to both increase the attributes and a certain amount of Engram Points.

Character Levels[edit | edit source]

Chibi-Pets grants 1 extra level per every 5 level it gains, up to a maximum of 5 extra level. Gamma variant of last bosses gives extra 5 level, Beta extra 10 and Alpha extra 15 (Non-cumulative on identical bosses). As of current, the maximum level obtainable is level 155 with all the above cleared at Alpha and Max level Chibi-Pets. Without any of it, the maximum level obtainable is 105.

*This number seems odd, but is correct in this table. The XP total needed to reach this level is too high in the game, compared to the adjacent levels.

**This number seems odd, but is correct in this table. The XP total needed to reach this level is too low in the game, compared to the adjacent levels.

Also the 1 EP gained for levels above 111 is right in this table. It only reflects the in-game weirdness.

Creature Levels[edit | edit source]

Creature levels are split between Wild Levels and Domestic Levels. The maximum level for wild creatures is 150 (dependent on the difficulty settings). Once tamed, creatures gain additional levels based on Taming Effectiveness. At 99.9% taming effectiveness, the creature gains ((level / 2) - 1) rounded up. This places the highest level for an unbred creature with no domestic levels at 224 if it was tamed at level 150. Most creatures will lose some taming effectiveness during taming, so some creatures have a lower maximum possible post tame level. Finally through breeding you can get creatures who are well above and beyond that number (the maximum level of any Dino on official servers has been capped at 450 as of July 2017). Each wild level results in a point being randomly assigned to one of the creatures stats.

You can level up a tamed creature 73 times (or 88 times in case of Genesis: Part 1 creatures) past the original level it was tamed at (after Taming Effectiveness is applied), these are known as domestic levels. Each level, you gain a skill point to increase one of the attributes of your tamed creature. These levels are not displayed separately in-game, but are instead combined into one overall creature level.

In case you forgot at which level a creature was tamed, have a look in this creature's inventory at the XP bar. The number after the slash (/) corresponds to the XP total of the next level according to the following table.

* This number seems odd compared to the adjacent levels, but is correct in this table, it only reflects the in-game weirdness.

Currently a Dino can't have more than 22213960 XP.

From 60 levels the difficulty to continue leveling up is much higher.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Lystrosaurus around your base helps boost XP for your creatures. Just make sure to pet them on a frequent basis, otherwise they won't provide the boost creature When you walk up to it, you can press the use-key (E, Y, Triangle) to pet it. It will then do a little dance or jump of joy. Once this is done, the XP boost will be active for about 5 minutes.
  • If you are leveling up a carnivore, bring lots of Raw Meat with you. Remote using meat on the dino when it is injured will help it heal much quicker.
  • If you are leveling up a herbivore, bring some Sweet Veggie Cakes with you. Remote using them on the dino when it is injured well help it heal much quicker.
  • Fighting Giganotosaurus or Titanosaur for leveling players and dinos is possible. As of v256 a tamed non-bred mate pair of Giganotosaurus with a saddle armor in excess of 90 armor, health in the 18k range and melee over 200% will reliably kill Titans on official in about 1 minute while taking between 0 and 5000 damage (varies based on how frequently the Titan runs from the player). If player XP is desired, all riders not getting the killing blow should back away and dismount their giga just prior to the player killing the Titan. Lower armor saddles, no mate boosting may also be possible, but risks enraging. Imprint bonus allows much lower saddle armor to be used while still preventing enrage.
  • Using Mindwipe Tonic on your player will reset you back to level 1 while keeping your Experience, allowing you to level up all over again to your previous level. This does not work on creatures.
  • Use broth of enlightenment.
