Ark: Survival Evolved Level Up Fast Tips

Our guide provides an overview of how to level up fast AKA Power Level in Ark: Survival Evolved. There are not many known ways to Power Level in the game as of this instant, but we will keep on updating the guide as we discover more methods:

Crafting Note or Cloth Hat
First of all, you need to spend some of your precious Engram Points to acquire Crafting Recipes for either Note or Cloth Hat. Both these items are quite cheap to craft: Note requires 3x Thatch + 1 Fiber and 10x Fiber for the Cloth Hat.

After you craft 1x of any of these items, you will acquire 1 Experience Point. I highly recommend crafting the Note, but it gets somewhat annoying since you need to cancel ‘Write Note’ every time you craft one.

If you think you can bear with this little annoyance, it’s pretty easy XP. In case you’ve a Tribe, you can do this with your Tribe Members and earn double or triple amount of the earned XP.

Moreover, do note that it will take some time, but it is the easiest method I found to level up without potentially doing anything. Just rinse and repeat the same method provided above and you’ll get to your desired level soon!

Also if you have any better methods to Power Level in the game, make sure to share them with us in the comments below.

Bow and Arrows
For this method to work, you need to be able to craft Bow and Arrows. Once you have done, you need to head over to the beach where you will find tons of Sauropods which provide tons of XP upon getting killed.

Alternatively, you can also use Bow Melee to kill dinosaurs in an instant and Power Level. However, do note that is about to get patched in upcoming updates – use it while it lasts!

Play with Tribe Members
Not a lot of people know this, but you always acquire XP from your Tribe Members when they perform any action that grants them XP. However, do note that you need to be in their vicinity to acquire XP from them.

Therefore, I would highly suggest doing things with your teammates whether it is crafting or hunting. One of your Tribe Members can go with building bases while you go with crafting Weapons and such which will profit all.
