To level up fast in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, you need to know where to go. Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth has some of the classic characteristics of an RPG: a party of heroes who must improve in their classes to get stronger.

Levelling up quickly in the game requires some work, but if you focus your efforts it can make life a lot easier. Here is how to level up fast in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth.

SPOILER WARNING: This guide includes light mention of events that take place in Chapter 5, so be warned that there are mild spoilers for that part of the game.

Level up fast in the early game

For farming experience and levelling up quickly, you're going to need to spend time in a dungeon. If you want to get started on this early, then you'll want to unlock the first dungeon as quickly as possible.

In the early goings of the game, your only real avenue for gaining experience is to hit the streets and fight some chumps. You don't need to do a massive amount of grinding early on, so don't feel the need to spend hours running around and picking fights. Instead, play through the story as normal until you reach a certain point in Chapter 5.

Shortly after gaining the ability to change jobs and earning the Street Surfer, you'll be sent on a patrol mission. Then you will come across a place called the Labyrinth, an abandoned construction site filled with criminals and delinquents. Naturally, Kasuga sees this as a dungeon filled with bad guys and precious loot.

After your initial incursion as part of the story, you can return to this Hawaiian Haunt to delve even deeper. The Hawaiian Haunt is the first of several dungeons in the game that you can explore, and these locations are where you want to go if you want to grind for experience.

To do so, speak to Robo Michio at the entrance and choose to "Challenge the dungeon". There are three sectors to the dungeon, each with ten floors to conquer. The first sector is recommended for a party of level 18 or higher characters. Sector two is recommended for level 32, and sector three for level 39 and up.

If you are looking to min/max your party, you can grind out whichever sector of the dungeon is most applicable to your level repeatedly to farm experience and level up.
