Sands Of Korgoth: Easy experience:
To easily gain experience in the Sands Of Korgoth immediately after Mantiac, stock up on Holy Bottles and Dark Bottles. Make your way to the Oasis save point. This save point is particular, as you will automatically heal all health and TP with it. From there, go north and run around with the Holy Bottle until night falls. Once it does, turn on the Dark Bottles. This will draw out all the monsters. The ones to look for are the little starfish-like monsters. They run very fast towards you. Engage in battle with them. You will receive 800 experience points for each one defeated. You can easily catch between six to eight of them per night. Nights last for about three minutes, resulting in about 4,800 to 6,400 experience points every time night falls.
Have Rita, Raven and Estelle in your party. The fourth member should have the "Item Thrower" skill. Turn off all other Artes for them, so that they are only using "Tidal Wave", "Tempest", and "Holy Rain", respectively. For the battle strategy, set whoever has "Item Thrower" to defend, watch TP, and no over limit or fatal strikes. For the Rita and Estelle, set them to target different enemies, full attack and Artes, Artes only, keep formation, no items, over limit level 1, and no fatal strikes. Do the same for Raven, except do not use any over limit for him. As for special equipment, equip Blue Dice on Raven and the character with "Item Thrower". Equip Rita and Estelle with Risky Rings. Before the battle, have everyone set the "Minimum Damage" skill. Also make sure you have items to restore TP, such as Orange Gel. Also, make sure the battle difficulty is set to hard or higher for the Grade multiplier. Go just outside of Zaphias and link encounter either the plant or mushroom enemies so you have at least six enemies in battle to keep the over limit above level 1. Turn on the battle strategy, and there you go. It should last roughly twenty minutes and at the end you will receive about 800 Grade, with no work on your part.
