Post-Patch 1.03 – AP Farming Guide
To farm 1,000 AP every 30 minutes, you’ll first need to gather up some items and unlock a specific Ascension Node.
- Required Items:
- Shield of the Just (Found in the Royal Tomb, west of the Disc, in Thommel’s Glade.)
- Warrior’s Fanfare (Included in the Holiday Pack DLC — Free Version)
- Blitzer’s Fanfare (Included in the Holiday Pack DLC — Paid Version)
- Armiger Accelerator (Included in the Holiday Pack DLC — Paid Version)
- Required Ascension Node:
- Armiger Action
When you’re ready and have everything equipped, follow these instructions.
- How to Farm AP — Step-by-Step
- Go to The Three Valleys and find the area where a pack of dogs spawns.
- Use the Whistle Command to summon enemies.
- Wait until Battle Mode activates — then use Warp Strikes to kill the dogs.
- Right after killing the dogs, activate Armiger Accelerator.
- This gives you +1 AP. Wait until the battle is over to activate or you’ll deplete Armiger.
- With the “Warrior’s Fanfare” and “Blitzer’s Fanfare” activated, you’ll get +3 AP for defeating enemies with A+ Timing and Offense. This require good timing with Warp Strikes, so it might take practice.
- As soon as the +AP number appears, whistle to summon another pack of dogs.
- If you don’t summon right after the pack is defeated, you’ll have to wait until the report card is complete.
- Rinse and repeat to earn all the AP you’ll ever need.
Using this method, you’ll earn at least +4 AP over the old method. Not bad, right? Give it a try and let us know if it works for you in the comments.
