The highest level cap in Unicorn Overlord is 50. The best way to earn XP fast in the game is to simply do the side content when it comes up. If you go through the game as you normally would, exploring every nook and cranny, you should be able to hit the level cap with a couple of characters.

Understanding the Leveling System in Unicorn Overlord

If you plan on maxing out every single character to the highest level, then it’s important to understand how XP works in the game. Sure, there are many efficient ways to farm XP in Unicorn Overlord but to maximize your gain, you need to understand the XP distribution and everything that comes with it.

Those who are coming from games like Fire Emblem and Tactics Ogre might think that they already know how the system works. You fight enemies and earn XP. If the enemy is on the same level as your Unit, you get an average number of XP. For higher level enemies you gain more XP and for lower levels, the XP gain is low. Pretty simple, right?

But in Unicorn Overlord, there’s a sort of “falloff” point where your XP gain takes a massive dip. This is when you’re battling an enemy who is three levels lower than your character. Once you’re 3 levels higher than your enemies level, you’ll get next to no XP for defeating them.

So it’s really not worth fighting low level enemies once your level gets above a certain threshold.

Of course, there are also several items and weapons in the games that outright give you percentage boosts to your XP gain. So if you absolutely must farm low-level enemies, make sure you equip a couple of them on your recruits to maximize XP gain.
