Monster Leveling Guide

Monster Leveling has come to Eos and it’s time to help your Monsters grow bigger and badder! Each Monster in the Farm can be upgraded for additional Boosts to help decimate your opponent. Choose your Monsters to upgrade wisely as they can be costly.


Leveling up Monsters requires Monster Food and Hatching Stones. Each subsequent level the amounts needed increases. There are several ways to accumulate these.

Leveling up

Once you have Monster Food handled, and Eggs aplenty, visit your Monster Farm to start Monster leveling. Each Monster’s rarity is denoted from one star to four stars. Click on the Monster you wish to level up. There is a “Max Benefits” button to help you decide which Monster(s) would be most beneficial to Level Up. Food must be added manually, and the amount needed is listed at the top of the screen.
