If you’re in a particular rush to reach Level 160 fast then these are the fastest ways to level up in Smite. Smite used to have a level cap of 30 back in the day before it was raised to 160. That means that you’re gonna have to spend a lot of time grinding to reach 160.

The level-up rewards are nice. But the real reason why most players want to level up fast is to unlock the ability to play Ranked.

After Level 30 you acquire what are known as “Prestige Levels”. Prestige Levels are the levels between 30 and 160. Unlike up until Level 30, you don’t really get much for hitting subsequent levels after 30; except for the odd title here and there. 

The 2 Fastest Ways to Level Up in Smite

Thanks to the labors of YouTuber DLennyEh, we now know which are the two fastest ways to level up in Smite. These are the Conquest method and the Joust method. 

The Conquest Method

Fastest Ways to Level up in Smite Conquest Method

According to DLennyEh, to reach Level 30, you’ll need to have played a total of 133.40 hours of Conquest. This estimate takes into consideration the average length of a match, the XP earned per match, the amount of XP earned per minute, and the amount of XP earned per hour.

It’s important to note that this is only an estimate, as no two matches of Conquest are exactly the same. Some matches are longer, some are shorter. You win some matches, you lose others. There are many factors that go into the equation that make a precise prediction impossible. But, the best estimates come to about 133.40 hours in total.

The Joust Method

Joust Method

The Joust method has you playing solely Joust and nothing else. If you use this method, then the total time it would take you to reach Level 30 is a bit longer at 134.76 hours of Joust.

The idea behind the Joust method is this. Joust matches are usually shorter than Conquest matches, so, since they’re shorter, you’re able to play more of them and earn rewards more often. However! They’re also less rewarding than Conquest matches, so, even though you’ll be able to play more of them, the caveat is that you’ll HAVE to play more of them, which can get tedious really quickly. 

Things to Consider When Leveling Up

Regardless of which method you choose, there are certain things that you should consider if you want to speed up the process. Things like:

  • Use Boosters whenever possible, these help speed up the leveling process exponentially
  • Play during events. Usually, events and event game modes give you certain bonuses, either to your XP gain or your Favor gain.
  • Play the MOTD (Match Of The Day). MOTD is a unique game mode that changes every day, it also usually comes with a boost to XP gain.
  • Most importantly – win as many matches as possible! Winning a match gives you a bonus. To truly level up fast, you’re going to have to win as many matches as possible.
