Sometimes when I’m playing PewDiePie’s Pixelings I feel like I’m being gated by my own Pixelings.
It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve shuffled around my Pixelings in battle, or how many abilities I use strategically, somehow I can’t beat the stages I’m currently on.
It doesn’t really help that the Pixelings I’m against are about 20-30 Power Ranks above me.
So, I take a look at my Pixelings and what do you know? My newest Pixelings aren’t even close to maxed level.
Now, I’m assuming by now you already know that there are two ways to make your Pixelings stronger.
You can level them up by playing with them or feeding them, or you can rank them up by using duplicates of the same Pixeling.
Today we’re going to focus on the ways you can make sure that your Pixelings are always maxed level and what the best way of grinding Pixeling experience.
FEEDING YOUR PIXELINGS
The fastest way, by far, to level up your Pixeling is by feeding the Pixeling its favourite food.
Feeding your Pixeling any type of food will boost their experience by 500 XP, but if you have a supply of a Pixeling’s favourite food it will boost their experience by a healthy 1000 XP.
Food should never be used on Pixelings who are in your party as you will always get a steady experience flow simply from playing through levels.
I’m truthfully always maxed out when it comes to Pewds and Slippy, especially since I’ve been battling with them from the very beginning of this game.
Food can only be received by completing levels that are associated with the type of food you would like to feed your Pixeling.
You can receive a maximum of 3 food per level, daily so be wise when you’re spending your food.
I only spend it on newer Pixelings that I want to add to my team in the near future.
This comes in extra handy when you have just purchased a new Pixeling or have just received a new one from a chest.
When you progress to Medium Difficulty after beating the Barrel King you will be provided access to new foods that give you 2000 XP as a base and 4000 if it is a Pixeling’s favourite food.
SWITCH OUT YOUR TEAM REGULARLY
As mentioned, it seems to be fairly easy to max out your Pixelings while you are grinding out regular dungeons, so be smart about who you’re putting on your team, especially if you are grinding out low-level content.
I personally have a sub-team that I always use when I’m doing content in BroTown.
Dependant on whether or not I feel like my main team is a high enough level, I will use a team filled with extremely low-level Pixelings, just so I can get them boosted by the time I really need them.
Due to the fact that your Pixelings become more powerful through both rank and level, some Pixelings are extremely weak until you can get duplicates of them.
In cases like this, it is still a good idea to grind out the base level of the Pixeling as it will spike the Power Rank of that Pixeling as soon as you are able to use duplicates on it.
ALWAYS GO BACK AND DO LOW-LEVEL CONTENT
Make sure you’re always doing low-level content, even if it’s just with “Instant Wins.”
At this point, it seems like the rewards you receive from BroTown and Floatopia are pretty much the same.
The only difference that I noticed is the number of coins you receive from your extra rewards is 25 coins higher. To me, that’s not a big enough difference to prefer grinding in Floatopia versus BroTown.
Dependant on how much you play the game, it’s actually very possible to grind out all of the extra rewards within the 24-hour reset.
This is especially true if you make use of watching all of the ads to refill your energy and use “Instant Win” if you’re not able to manually play every level for its extra rewards.
I personally grind out the first level over and over again until I run out of energy since I personally don’t care whether I’m being challenged by the content that gives me experience.
I would rather get it over with so I can finally progress in the main storyline.
Note: Once you have access to Medium or Hard Difficulty avoid doing Easy Difficulty unless it’s to get the XP Boost levels.
Medium and Hard Difficulty give much better rewards, especially when it comes to food and experience.
GRIND OUT PVP
Not everyone is going to be a fan of PVP, but it’s one of the most ideal ways of grinding out experience, especially because you don’t need energy to participate in it.
Similarly, PVP will give you the same amount of experience as winning or losing a map, so if you don’t have energy or can’t watch ads to refill your bar head on over to PVP.
Honestly, even if you passively play and lose the majority of your battles, it’s still a decent way of getting experience for your Pixelings.
There is no consequence to losing a PVP match, other than the fact that you do not receive as many rewards.
Although this is true, the difference is fairly minuscule, so it’s still worth a shot anyway.
PVP gives +50 XP to Pixelings if you win and +25 XP if you lose.
Unfortunately, at the end of the day, there isn’t really a special way to level up your Pixelings that makes the whole process easier.
It seems like the Outerminds team has done a great job of making sure that this game has a stead progression instead of a quick stomp or rollover.
As frustrating as it can be to not be able to complete the next tier of levels, I truthfully prefer it to having a completely brain dead game.
So, I’m curious, what Power Rank are your current Pixelings? What’s your favourite way of powering them up? Let me know in the comments below!
