I think everyone can agree on one thing about leveling Homunculi, that it sucks! There is no real guide on where to level your lovely companion, yes that slug-type Vanilmirth too, so I'm going to start this guide in hopes to help you, the reader, out in getting to your goal of achieving levels on your homunculus. This guide will just have a rough draft-esque on where to level, for now. This will hopefully get players to go to maps with other players to have a good respawn rate at each map listed below to ensure a smooth, progress-that-you-can-actually-see leveling experience. Since that there is more people now, hopefully we can get things to be better for our AFK Pets.

By the way, if anyone wants to give more map options on where to level, I will gladly add it to this post.


1 - 5
Not necessarily a hard thing to achieve when you first Call your Homunculus.

You can easily gain these 4 levels in one map south of Prontera

Posted Image

Kill everything that you see with your homunculus.

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

But don't let your Homunculus touch:

Posted Image

5 - 11
Another easy few levels for your Homunculus, whether it has a killing skill or not.

Head to one map south of Payon, either by walking or Kafra Teleport Service.

Posted Image

There you'll encounter some of the same monsters as above, but your main targets are:

Posted Image

Monsters to evade are creamies again.

Posted Image

11 - 20/25
After getting level 11, or higher if you chose to stay there, go back to Payon and head east this time, ending up in this map.

Posted Image

Kill Spores, Boa, and Wormtails.
Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

This is where patience will have to start developing, from here on out levels won't fly in so quickly, and the "AFK Period" will start.

20/25 - 60/99
Depending on what level you stopped killing in Payon Forest 08, we will head down to the famous AFK Spot: Ant Hell.

Why do we go here so late you ask? It's because anything below 18, your homunculus will just not have enough power and hit to fully have a nice EXP flow, thus, killing "weaker" monsters will be better until you hit 20+. And also, the ants will just feast on your homunculus if it tries to attack ants, and won't even be strong enough to take down the mighty Familiars...

Posted Image

Of course, this map is really famous for its inhabitants: Ant Eggs. Along with multiple types of ants.

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image





This is the one level range where 1 more map needs to be discovered for, Ant Hell is ALWAYS packed down with Chemists and never have room for more people to come and level at. I think Poring Island will be a good substitute for Ant Hell, as it is filled with Poporings and Marins, but I've always been the only one there whenever I tried it out so I can't say if it will be a contender for a good spot or not, plus the mini-bosses might be a problem, especially Ghostring...

60 - 99/First AoE of Homun S
The next two maps are the alternatives to achieving 99 on your homunculus other than Ant Hell, it has been famous for AFK Leveling, even in pre-renewal, and still lives on to be one of the best spots to level a Homun. So if you think your companion can handle the monsters in these two maps, go on ahead.

Recommended levels are 60+, but if your homunculus is having problems down here, let me know, and I will up starting level, so that newcomers wiill not waste time trying to go back and forth, especially non-vips...

Orc Dungeon 01

Posted Image

These inhabits the map:
Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Orc Dungeon 02

Posted Image

It is inhabited by:

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

It can be a tiny bit dangerous if the Chemist isn't that high leveled because of these guys:

Posted Image

One can stay in Orc Dungeon for a while, or at least until they find it really slow and unbearable.

From this point out you can decide on where to level since there are multiple maps that you can try out, you can stay in OD1 or OD2, get a couple more levels in Ant Hell, or try out one of the following maps. You can decide on when to leave the maps, if it is working out very well for you, stay, if not give the other maps a try. Most of the maps will require your S's AoE skill, or at least FIRST killing skill.

99(Early Stages of Homun S) - First AoE Skill ( Non - AFK ) Suggestion by Alaska
Head to Brasilis Field, and kill everything on sight. Mob and tank for your companion and let it kill them.

Posted Image

Monsters in this map are:

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Homun's First AoE Skill - XXX (non-afk)
This map is very good for mobbing up and letting your Homun S use its AoE Skill.
Brasilis Dungeons will require you to finish this quest [ http://irowiki.org/w..._Entrance_Quest ], it is not that difficult or too long of a quest for its reward.

Brasilis Dungeon 01
Posted Image

Your main focus of attacking are Piranhas, others are merely an inconvinience/distraction since they are not aggressive, and they yield little XP for Homunculus. But you should also give some on attacking and killing Iaras, while they are not aggressive, they give a good amount of XP, but that is for you to decide...

Posted Image Posted Image

Again, the other monsters should be ignored because of the little XP it gives, but that is just my opinion, you can kill them if you want...

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Brasilis Dungeon 02
Posted Image

This map will have the same monsters as the previous level of the dungeon, but in different amounts. Also, this map has an MVP, a simple Fly Wing/Teleport can get you out of the way though since you are not AFK'ing down here.

Posted Image


110 - XXX
No good spots is really known yet for fast-leveling as Homun S, but one map is gaining popularity, and that is Juno Field 07, the map outside of Juperos.

Posted Image

It has these monsters:

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image


I have no experience in this map myself, but from what I read/heard around the forums, it can easily be handled by a Homunculus S that has access to its AoE Skill.


Well that about does it for this guide, hopefully it will shine some light to where to level and whatnot. Please, PLEASE, give some suggestions on some other maps than what I have listed here, and I will put it into this post, granted that you give the tactics on what to do in those maps, ie. mob, AFK or non-afk, avoid some monsters, etc...

Thank you for reading :)

This is a really nice guide, I was looking for something like this when I first made mine!

Also if you're looking for suggestions, Brasilis field is a really nice place to level non-afk, I was there until I got my first AoE on Sera. Afterwards you can mob in Brasilis dungeon 1/2 for some nice exp as well. Of course, non-afk. XD

I don't quite remember which one it was as I haven't worked with my homunc in a while, but the venomous/noxious maps directly above Einbroch and Einbech were both pretty good experience for my lvl 90 vanilmirth when paying slightly closer attention to its health.

Maya purple should be removed as a threat in ant hell 01 btw, that was in pre-renewal. I'm pretty sure hes only in the guild dungeons now. :no1:

Okay, removed now.

You can TRY Poporings in Poring Island. The Marins and Popos give a slightly more EXP than Ant Eggs. Walk/Tele around, and look out for the mini-bosses in this map, not a threat if you're a Gen..

My Dieter is on Magmaring when I'm not afk and I think it's really good spot for Homun that offensive oriented like Eleanor. He's a bit fast with just Magma Flow and melee attack so any other homun should do better, at least the ones that using vanilmirth base.. Oh and more recommended for high levels, lv 120 below just suck even with Amistr -> Dieter..

Yeah... I went to ein_fild05 during the spotlight, and got my Dieter from 109 to 122 just grinding there with lava slide. Took just a bit more than a day.
Before he was 109, I manually grinded him there from 99 at Kunlun 1.

For quick leveling a Dieter at 122 and onward, you activate magma flow, and teleport around Nogg 2. I remember it being something like 30%~ an hour.

i have a high lvl dieter and this is how i lvl'd him
1-30 porings,lunatics,rockers
30-70 ant eggs
70-140+ orc dun

reason for not leaving orc dun was
1:) easy afk lvling. feed once an hour and do it while multitasking.
2:) tried active lvling and trust me its boring.
been to brasillis dun, juno maps during spotlight, nogg, amatsu dungeon but really orc dun is better. just afk and watch a movie or something.
3:) once homun gets aoe lving is super fast so if u feel like giving up dont 6-7 clicks every hour to feed is all u need.

atm make best use of 2x exp n juno spotlight.

Most people do that... There seems like no other map is as ok as OD 2. Sunken Ship is showing up as a new option.

Yeah, but there is not too many people going there so the respawn can get stuck sometimes, so you have to put on Antonio Card or Castling Move tactics, i actually prefer this one than OD1 or OD2 rooms are separated so basically each chemist can take one room and keep respawn up.
