When you go into certain areas of the game you will come across rare monsters (monsters with a red glowing circle around around them).
So if you fight them and you are victorious you get extra experience but if you then go to another location and then go back to where you had just came from you will be able to fight them again as they will have reappeared giving you extra experience again.
This works best at the start of the game by defeating all of the praetox in the inn and then going outside up to the acadamy (BUT not going to far or you will not be able to do it) defetaing all of the praetox there and going back into the Inn where you can fight all of the praetox again.
Keep doing this over and over again as it gives you lots of experience and then once you get to a good rank i.e. Level 20 speak to overseer lyseeta and start the story off properly but as a pretty much undefeatable person comapred to all of the other creatures that you will come accross for most of the game,
I hope this helped as it did for me. PaulC
