Age of Conan Unchained Leveling Guide 1-80

Welcome to the updated Age of Conan Unchained Leveling Guide! This guide will help you level up to the maximum level of 80 in Age of Conan. Whether you’re a free-to-play or premium player, this guide will work for you.

This guide is primarily focused on soloing, but it also includes some group content.


Both questing and grinding are viable options for gaining experience in Age of Conan. In the beginning, questing will be more efficient, but as you level up, you can choose what you want to do.

  • Make sure to upgrade your gear every 10-20 levels, if possible.
  • If you can afford it, stock up on potions to help you during combat.
  • Every four days, an offline level will be added to your account. You can save these levels and spend them when you reach level 70 or above.
  • If you plan on solo grinding, choose an AOE class, as they are much faster when it comes to grinding.
  • Use the world map to see where you can level. It shows level information for each zone.


Choosing the right class is crucial if you want to level up quickly. Check out our Age of Conan Best Solo Class Guide for more information.

Items and Gear:

Most weapons and equipment can be obtained through questing and drops. If you have a high-level character, you can send over some gold to your new character for gear, but this isn’t necessary.

You can also purchase gear through the item shop, but it can be expensive. In most cases, it’s best to stick with the gear you obtain through drops. If you feel under-geared, find a group and tackle some instances.

There are a few other items that can be useful for leveling up quickly:

The Ring of Acheron can be acquired by purchasing the collector’s edition of the game or buying it in the item shop for 1100 Funcom Points. It gives you a 2% experience boost.

Experience Potions can also be purchased in the item shop. They boost your XP for several hours and are worth considering.

Level 1-20:

Levels 1-5: Tutorial

The tutorial is very quick, and you’ll be done with the first five levels in about 10 minutes. Follow the instructions and defeat the enemies.

Levels 6-20: Tortage

Tortage is the starting area of Age of Conan. It’s fun the first time around, but it can be tedious the second or third time. Follow the quest lines to reach level 20.

Level 20-40:

After leaving Tortage, you’ll end up in a city depending on your race:

  • Stygians start in Khemi.
  • Aquilonians start in Old Tarantia.
  • Cimmerians start in Conarch Village.

To travel between these areas:

  • Khemi to Old Tarantia: Talk to the NPC on the Northeastern docks.
  • Conarch Village to Tarantia: Talk to the Wagoneer.
  • Old Tarantia to Khemi: Talk to the NPC on the Northwestern docks.
  • Old Tarantia to Conarch Village: Wagoneer on the road through the southwestern gate.

You can pick up quests and complete quests in all these zones, which will lead to follow-up quests in Conal’s Valley, Khopesh Province, and Wild Land of Zelata. Doing these quests usually involves running around from city to city delivering things and will net you 2-3 levels.

You can do quests in any of these zones. It’s usually best to switch between questing in all three of them.

Grind Spots:

  • Level 20: Picts in Tortage.
  • Level 25: Vanir in Connal’s Valley
  • Level 30: Nemedian Soldiers in Wild Lands.

Level 40-60:

When you’ve completed the quests in all these zones, you should be around level 40. If not, you can grind out the next levels until you are or just continue on.

At level 40, you can get a mount, which cuts down on travel time and helps you level up faster. Make sure to stock up on potions as well.

Two zones will become available: Tarantia Noble District and Fields of The Dead. Complete all the quests in these zones to reach around level 50.

Do quests and grind in these zones until around level 50.

You should now start doing the Villas in Tarantia Noble District. These are instances with repeatable solo quests. There are four villas that you can do every 4-5 hours. These give good XP and scale with your level:

  • Villa Amiel
  • Villa Camilus
  • Villa Lentulus
  • Villa Verde

Combine doing quests in Eglophian Mountains and Ymirs Pass with the Villas. You should be able to reach level 60 with little to no grinding this way.

Grind Spots:

  • Level 40: Vanir in Fields of the Dead.
  • Level 45: Haunted Forest.
  • Level 55: Vanir Camp past the Mountain Hunting Lodge.
  • Level 55: Cannibal Caves in Eiglophian Mountains.

Level 60-80:

The main zones for leveling up from 60-70 are Thunder River and Atzels Approach. Do quests here until around level 70.

Grinding is also a viable option at these levels, and you can level up just as fast or faster by grinding.

When you’ve finished in Thunder River and Atzels Approach, move on to Kheshatta. This is where you’ll stay until level 80.

If you have offline levels, use them now.

Do quests in Kheshatta along with group content and Villas until level 80.

Grind Spots:

  • Level 60: Various Vanir Camps in Atzel’s Approach.
  • Level 60: “The Wagon” in Atzels Approach.
  • Level 70: Cohort Camp in Kheshatta.
  • Level 75: Death Master Camps in Keshatta.

Congratulations on reaching level 80! We hope you found this guide helpful.

  1. This guide is my AoC leveling bible. 20 to 80 in 4 days and couldn’t have done it without your help. Thanks.

  2. Oh, most assuredly, I enjoyed your leveling guide very much. I’m a professional in the field of medicine and I’m nonetheless quarreling with my children about mission strategies and leveling. To tell you the truth, I still have lots of holes in my AoC tapestry, but I pretend to read all your guides. Thanks a lot for your service.
