The numbers indicated with the dash represent the starting level and last level, respectively. The name displayed next to the numbers is the name of the map. If a story recommended to you is not a map, the plan would mention it in words.

Fifth Job Advancement
Farming is different in the Arcane River; the maps you need will base on the AF you have and how far you’ve made it into the Arcane River.
It would be best if you kept in mind the following when farming in the Arcane River;
- When you have more than 110% AF, you can deal with more damage efficiently.
- When you have 150% or more AF, you will take 1% damage from monsters, even elites.
- Do not go to maps that do not have 100% AF.
- Keep your EXP and Meso rate in check with Battle Analisys to collect data of the objectives to the best map available.
- Since different characters have different reach and mobility, you should experiment with maps that work for your chosen character.
- If you want to play in a weak or fragile class, you should play maps with 150% AF.
360 AF: Path 1 Lower
360 AF: Lower Path Cavern
320 AF: In Between Thunder 2 and Frost
In Chuchu Island, you will find that there are only a few optional farming maps which means there are fewer or no bonuses in the burning field. Since this is the case, there is a better chance for your character to earn more EXP in Reverse City.
160 AF: Mountainside 2 Skywhale
100 AF: Slurpy Depths of the Forest
100 AF: Forest 1 Mottled: Hill of Five Colors
640 AF: Temple 3 Radiant; this is an option for players without Kanna/ Wild Totem characters.
600 AF: Sea 6 Mirror-Touched
600 AF: Sea 3 Mirror-Touched, higher burning, unlike MTS2
600 AF: Sea 2 Mirror-Touched, MTS maps
I have yet to pass this level but have received the current information from former and current guildmates and community feedback. This information is all verified, not one out of speculation or guesswork.
If you want to use this guide anyway, make sure you use the Battle Analisys to try out different maps and those that are suitable for your character.
210 AF: Dance Floor 1 Occupied; this needs good vertical reach or mobility.
210 AF: 2 and 3 Chicken Festival
210 AF: 1 Chicken Festival
210 AF: Place 3 Revelation
520 AF: In Trueffet 3 That Day
480 AF: Hall 4 Shadowdance
440 AF: Boulevard 2 Bully
The location for Morass is often overlooked as a farming place since it is not the right choice for training and requires a higher AF. It has mob levels that are similar to that of Arcana.
But for people who fly solo, it is a good location for those who play without Kannas or Wild Totems. In case all maps in Arcana are full and you are in desperate need of EXPs, Morass is an excellent substitute.
100 AF: Hidden Research Train
40 AF: 1 and 4 Subway Tunnel
The maps as mentioned above are the best maps in Reverse City. Stay away from the M-Tower charts in Reverse City for leveling since the location is too large to cultivate alone.
880 AF: 1-5 End of World
880 AF: 1-4 End of World
820 AF: Deep Core 1 Labyrinth of Suffering
730 AF: Current 4 Void
670 AF: 2 Last Horizon
60 AF: Below the Cave
40 AF: Zone of Fire
30 AF: Land of Rage Weathered
You can join a 25+ level guild to score additional AFs or invest some Hyper Stats into Arcane Force.
Yum Yum Island
160 AF: Fungos Forest Region
These maps have many platforms suitable for your character’s class to attack several platforms. Examples of the Characters to use here are- Lightning, Ice, etc.
160 AF: Illiard Field Region
Characters like Kanna, Corsair, etc., who have very tall hitboxes for attack or full map attacks, can use this map with 2-3 platform layers.
130 AF: Mushbud Forest Region
Characters like Hunter, Aran, etc., can use this platform as they are further apart. These are more extended maps preferable for those classes with good mobility and can attack as they move.
The maps in Yum Yum Island are almost similar, so you need to choose a suitable location for your class and character with the highest burning in it.
