The best XP farming spot in Lords of the Fallen

If there’s one thing you can count on in a Soulslike game, it’s that you’ll be constantly facing down difficult enemies and bosses that will test your mettle. As such, it’s important that you stay appropriately leveled throughout your journey so that you stand a better chance of survival. In Lords of the Fallen, there happens to be a specific spot that provides a fantastic opportunity for quick leveling in the early game, while remaining viable even late into the adventure when you need to get a bit of extra XP. We’ll fill you in below.

Best XP farming spot in Lords of the Fallen

Relatively early on in the game while venturing through Pilgrim’s Perch, you’ll come across a vestige in a place called the Bellroom. While facing the vestige, you’ll see a large enemy with a spiked cage on its head down the left pathway. This foe and its Umbral Parasite can be defeated for a bit over 500 Vigor, allowing you to then immediately rest at the vestige and repeat the process as many times as you’d like.

This XP farming method is immensely useful in the early hours of the game, as you can easily gain multiple levels in just a few minutes by quickly taking the enemy down over and over. Shockingly, though, it remains a fantastic option even late in the game due to how quickly you’ll be able to drop the baddie and reset the encounter. If you’re about to face a boss or make a run through a rough section of the game and don’t want to risk the many thousands of Vigor you currently have, just fast travel back to the Bellroom and farm this poor fellow a few times until you can level up. You’ll then be ready to comfortably head back into the fray.

Nintendo Switch vs. PlayStation Portal: which portable device is best?
playstation portal review remote player vs switch oled

Handheld gaming has come back in a big way this past generation. Nintendo formerly held the crown as the king of the dedicated handheld market with its unfathomably successful DS line, which would eventually combine into a home console with the equally impressive Switch. PlayStation attempted to get into this market with the PSP and PS Vita but appeared to bow out of that competition when the latter failed to achieve much success. However, the new PlayStation Portal device could provide players with an alternative to Nintendo's aging system.

If you're debating between the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation Portal, here's a full breakdown of how the two devices stack up.

The leaks are correct: Dragon’s Dogma 2 launches in March

During a Dragon's Dogma 2 Showcase Tuesday afternoon, Capcom confirmed the worst-kept release date secret of recent weeks: Dragon's Dogma 2 launches on March 22, 2024. The livestream also revealed a lot more about the sequel, including the fact that it takes place in a parallel world to the original game.

We first noticed that this highly anticipated sequel to a cult classic RPG was launching in March 2024 earlier this month, when a PEGI game rating with the release date was spotted. While there was potential that this was just a clerical error as the listing was taken down, a release date around this time was again affirmed on Tuesday morning when that same date was listed on the game's Steam page. Capcom finally confirmed the release date itself at the end of the trailer that started the showcase, as Capcom's Hideaki Itsuno had promised on X on Monday.
