An Easy Way to level up Exploration??
I was wondering if there is an easy way to levelup exploration.
If so are there any skills required?
You could raft easily if you have high ranked Crash Shot or Thunder. It probably can get you to around 20~25 within about an hour or so on the first bit of your rebirth, while leveling your current level to around 40. The only thing is that you'll have to repair and chop wood, and possibly bring some MP Pots for Thunder or Crash if you need them, and this has more of a death risk if you're lower leveled. Skill is required here though, as you need to survive and be able to quick instant kill the mobs.
Cor Artifacts is a fast way to get from 1~15 or so, but it begins getting tough getting from 15~20 around that point with artifacts, as you still have to search and restore them at Voight, which is painful sometimes, as he usually may fail to restore the work that you have done searching up artfiacts with your L-Rod. I usually search around Pantay Swamp if I am searching for artifacts for exploration, and it has less of a death risk, as there are less mobs to murder you. SA little skill is required here, as sometimes monsters spawn with the chest, and you have to defeat them within a certain timeframe before the chest disappears.
Lost Elves are an easy level 1~8 explore or so, and that may get you started on something, and it's easy to escort elves back to Filia, netting you about 1.5k Exploration exp each, the ones from Rupes Desert, because it doesn't have any other things rather than Lost Elves pretty much. No skill really required, but a pet would be really useful here, since you wouldn't want to just walk all the way back from Rupes to Filia to only get 1.5k Exploration EXP.
Those Gachapon statues give a lot of exploration exp, though they ended today and they're not tradable between players either. If you have those, you can easily get to level 25 exploration with no sweat by handing them into Voight at Cor Village.
Arc Lich is a easy 1~15, and beyond there it's a little tricky. Just blow it up with Bomb Steeds, and you're good to go for some Explore EXP, though you may want to hunt the bigger field bosses as well if you have enough skill to. Arc Lich spawns every around half an hour, so I don't recommend this if you're unable to handle the time bwteen spawns. It requires you to die multiple times to kill it with Bomb Steeds, elsewise, you probably can't kill it with Ghost Swords within a timeframe it spawns. It has the most time spawned on Sundays, which is 8 PM - 6 AM in game time, before it disappears, so you gotta blow it up multiple times in that time frame. It gives some nice sewing patterns as well as rarer drops, so it's worth it a little in quite that aspect compared to other exploration methods that don't net you as much cash, though it's a rare drop.
In terms of the Lich, anyone can do it, it's just that they need to learn how to time the Steeds blowing up and be willing to sacrifice their exp for it. If you manage to kill it though, it'll most likely reward you with more exp than you lost, so it should be fair.
You need a camp kit for this, as you don't want to revive elsewhere but Metus, where it spawns, so you can constantly go back to it, which is the only way you'll be able to kill it. Camp Kits are purchasable at the in game Premium Shop for 150 Nx if you want to take a go at this. No skill is required, just the coming back and forth and blowing it up is easy enough for anyone to do, once you get the hang of it.

^^^^ that's incredibly thorough, end thread :)
Also if you opened any Lorna&pan gachapon you can use those artifacts and get 9k~15k exp per.
If you have Demi god and are willing to burn it, artifact exploration around cor is a snap. Except of course wshen voight breaks half your haul
Exploring for artifacts in Cor or Pantay Swamp, or ranking Crash Shot or Thunder for rafting make things fairly easy. They ARE AP-intensive skills, though, so if you want to save your AP for something that doesn't involve those skills, I recommend the artifacts instead.
Im pretty sure the last three posts are completely redundant, as the wonderful Ryoko answered this pretty extensively.
