Final Fantasy 15 Patch 1.05 is live on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This latest update comes with a handful of changes which include PlayStation4 Pro console Lite Mode compatibility with a maximum of 60 FPS, new Timed Quests with limited-time and contests, increased camera roll capacity to 200 photos, portable music player for Chocobo rides, conclusion of the Moogle Chocobo Carnival and the most important – higher level cap. FFXV level cap has been increased from 99 to 120. This guide will show you the fastest way to reach max level of 120 in FFXV after the patch and explains what happens with stored experience after FF15 update 1.05.
Stored EXP after FFXV update 1.05
The latest Final Fantasy 15 update revealed a big problem with stored XP. If your character level was less than 99, after 1.05 update the amount of stored experience will be cut off. If your character was level 99 than all the stored XP will be reset to 0.
Fast level up to 120 in FFXV after patch 1.05
In order to reach the new level cap of 120 in Final Fantasy 15 you’ll need approximately 26 million EXP. The fastest way to max up your level is to farm Cactuars in a new timed quest introduced with this patch. You can start this timed hunt near Cnuscherry Plains.
Before you start the quest make sure that you have equipped Moogle charms on each character. Moogle Charm only adds bonus EXP to the wearer instead of the whole party. You can also equip Nixperience Band on one of the characters to stop experience points from being spent, and your party leveling up, when you camp/rest. Don’t forget to eat Lasagna al Forno to increase experience points earned by 100%. Equip Black Hood and you’ll automatically evade all attacks or Ring of Lucii that allows you to cast advanced magic, including a spell that lets you heal by dealing damage to your opponents.
With this method you’ll earn about 140K EXP in 5 minutes. If you use 8 rare coins and craft Expericast spell and cast it before you kill the Cactuars you’ll get between 300-400k per quest. The great thing about this timed quest is that you’ll get it instantly after you finish it, so you don’t need to waste time by visiting the quest giver. After collecting
8 million XP 3 million XP (thanks to Chaturanand Chauhan for the heads up!), go to the hotel in Altissia and pay 30,000 gil for triple experience.
