How to Level Up Fast in Dark Orbit

Updated March 23, 2017

Dark Orbit is a free, massive multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) that involves completing quests, fighting enemies, and building both rank and reputation. One of the most pertinent ways to excel at dark Orbit is to earn experience points. Certain amounts of experience lead to a level up, at which point you get access to more features and skills. You can speed up the process by using real money to buy uridium, which is the game's currency.

  1. Complete all the achievement quests, including First Assignment, Navigator, Streuner, Lordakia, Samon and Mordon.

  2. Defeat alien non-player characters, or NPCs. Make certain your ship is properly equipped and that you have enough credits handy to repurchase your ship in case you lose.

  3. Fight other human players. You earn much more experience for a human kill versus an NPC kill. However, human players are also much more difficult to defeat, so be prepared for a tough fight.

  4. Complete the Death Race. Make certain you do it with an outfit mate because there's a strong chance you'll be shot down your first time around.

  5. Invest in Wormhole Research. It's expensive and does take a few days to process, but you'll be rewarded with a large sum of experience points.

  6. Join a clan and attack the Cubikon together. The total experience you gain from the ordeal is determined by dividing the total experience by the number of players who participated in the attack. Players who deal more damage earn a slightly higher amount of experience.

  7. Collect bonus boxes. Approximately 51 per cent of them contain 20, 50, or 100 experience points.

  8. Build galaxy gates. You must first build an Alpha gate, though it offers no experience. Then you can build a Beta Gate for 8 million experience points and a Gamma Gate for 12 million.

  9. Tip

    Be patient. Earning experience is one of the core elements of the game, so it will take up most of your time.


    Don't challenge opponents who are clearly better than you. The potential gain in experience points may be tempting, but you'll end up losing more experience points by dying.
