Learn to Level Your Beast with this War and Order Guide
In this War and Order guide you will learn exactly how you can level your beast. There are also a couple of tricks that will help you speed things up. If you are unfamiliar with these companion pets in War and Order you can start by reading this guide. If you already know about them, keep reading to learn how beast leveling works in War and Order.
This guide will have both a text version and a video (for those of us that like to read rather than watch our guides). The video can be found at the bottom of this guide.
How to Level Your Beast in War and Order
First you want to make sure that you send your beast out on attacks. To do this, you just need to click the little check box on the top right side of your attack setup screen. The image shows where the check box is to send your beast on attacks.
There are a few different ways to get beast xp in War and Order. The first way is by attacking monsters and rebel camps and including your beast in the march. When you attack monsters or rebels you will get a total of 50 Xp per attack. While this is not much, the cost to send these attacks is low. Yes, there is a cost to send your beast on attacks. We will talk about that in just a moment.
The second, and probably most lucrative way to get XP to level your beast in War and Order is to attack castles. When you attack castles while using your beast, you will get 300 beast Xp per attack. It is much more expensive to send your beast on these attacks, but the payoff is better in two ways.
What Attacking Castles to Level Your Beast is a Better Idea
The first reason why attacking castles to level your beast is better is because whether you win or lose, you will still get XP. The same is not true when attacking monsters or rebels. If you lose to a monster or rebel attack, you do not get the XP and you lose the beast stamina (Vigor or HP). Attacking castles will give you Xp no matter what (and much more of it).
The second reason attacking castles is better for beast leveling is the amount of XP you get per attack. When you attack monsters and rebels you get 50 XP per attack. When you attack player castles get 300 beast XP per attack (again, win or lose). This makes leveling your beast much more effective.
How Much Does It Costs To Send My Beast on an Attack?
Sending your beast out on attacks requires a trade-off in Vigor. Vigor is also called Stamina or HP. You Vigor amount is located on the top right of your beast menu. You can get to your beast menu by clicking on the beast building in your city. Below are the costs to send your beast out on attacks.
Attacking monsters and rebel camps cost 5 beast vigor per attack.
Castle attacks cost a total of 30 beast vigor per attack.
Using your beast in Elite Wars and Adventures costs no vigor (but I did not see any beast Xp gains during the elite war).
Beast Vigor Refresh Rate
Beast vigor refreshes at 1 point every 600 seconds. This equates to 1 point every 10 minutes. You have a total of 100 vigor, if you use it all, you will need to wait about an hour to afford a monster attack. If you want to attack a castle and you have 0 vigor then you have to wait 5 hours.
There is a faster way to get beast vigor but it will cost you some gems.
Using the Merchant to Get Beast Items
The ship merchant sells some nice items that will you speed up your beast leveling. You will start to see Vigor potions, XP pills, and Skill fragment boxes. Below we will go over what each of these does to help you level your beast.
Vigor potions instantly refresh a certain amount of vigor. Typically 30 vigor will be refreshed per potion. These are similar to stamina potions that you use to refresh your ability to attack monsters. If you want to hurry up and level your beast then you need to buy these whenever you see them in the merchants shop. They cost 40 gems per potion.
XP pills are exactly what they sound like. Swallow these little guys and your beast will instantly get 50 XP per pill. I don’t think you need a prescription for these either, so if you see them in the shop buy and use them. These pills are probably one of the easiest ways to level your beast in War and Order. You can get 10 pills for 40 gems, that’s a total of 500 beast XP.
Beast Skill Chest
Your beast has skills. As you level you will have the ability to unlock new skills. You can buy these boxes from the merchant to collect fragments. Once you have enough fragments and the proper level you can combine them to add a new ability for your beast. While not used for leveling purposes, they are used to help make your beast better.
War and Order Beast Level Cap
You can level your beast up to your current castle level. Essentially this caps the beast levels at 35. But if you are only castle level 22, then your beast can only be level 22. Once you level your castle to 23, you can level your beast to 23.
Skills also have levels. You can get skill level boosters from rebel camps. Skills have a similar level cap.

Summary of How to Level Your Beast in War and Order
One thing that is important to remember is your beast skills. You want to level your skills as you level your beast. A beast with no skills and a high level will not be as effective as a midlevel beast with mid level skills.
You can see it does not take much more than time and minimal effort to level your beast. Be sure you get your hands on some of those vigor potions from the merchant to help you speed things up. There are people who had level 6 and 7 beasts within the first day of the War and Order beast update launch, so it can be done. Finally, be prepared to spend at least a few gems if you want to level your beast at a decent pace.
