Valkyria Chronicles Leveling Guide
by your name here

v1-12/18/08-Complete. Barring any errors, this is the final version.


The purpose of this guide is to provide information regarding leveling the
different classes in Valkyria Chronicles so that the user may properly plan out
how to distribute experience. Included within is a table of required experience
for each level, a list of the different bonuses gained when leveling and when
they are acquired, and a list of the different orders that can be aquired.

There are no specific strategies for leveling. You should level your classes
based on your playstyle. If you're unsure, just try to keep everyone at around
the same level.

[REX]--Required Experience
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is a table of the experience required to level up the classes. It can be
used to tell how many levels of a certain class you can "afford" with your
current experience. It might be interesting to know that you need a total of
2,278,273 experience to get all classes to level 20.

[BNS]--Bonuses
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Upon reaching certain levels, You may gain battle potentials for your classes
and orders. The scout, shock trooper and Lancer class all earn special weapons
upon reaching level 11 (Elite status). The scout gains a grenade launcher as a
secondary weapon, which allows them to throw their grenades much further. The
shock trooper class gains a flamethrower, another secondary weapon with a large
spread and infinite ammo. The Lancer class gains the mortar lance (Lancaar-SH),
which needs to be researched first, and is a replacement to the default anti-
tank lance.

whatever reason, then he will not teach it to you again for a while.
