Wartales Region Levels and Order Guide

Where to go next?

Tactical RPG Wartales sees you exploring a large medieval landscape. Some regions have several exit points so if you’re wondering what order you should explore Wartales and the levels of the regions, read on.

As you complete quests and win strategic turn-based battles your companions level up. If you’ve chosen to play in Adaptive Exploration mode, the region order doesn’t matter as the game levels at the same pace as our companions no matter where you go. However, in Region-locked Exploration mode, the mobs you face have set levels.

What is the region order in Wartales?

The region order can roughly be described as Tiltren, Arthes and Vertruse, Ludern, Grinmeer, and Dronbach. If you also have the Pirates of Belerion DLC, this region can be tackled after Grinmere but there are some caveats (see below).

While you can make it a straight linear progression with that ordering, the level overlaps mean you may want to mix and match a little, especially with Arthes and Vertruse. Also, it may be better to come back later for some battle, such as the champion in each region and the toughest bandit camps.

When playing Region-locked, don't feel compelled to complete an entire region before moving to the next. The toughest Tiltren content is much harder than the easiest Arthes and Vertruse battles. For example, I'd completed most of Arthes before going back to deal with Mathius Lund in Tiltren, a tough fight to keep everyone alive if you don't have Level 5 specializations to rely on.

The region titles below link to my guides on each area, featuring full maps and location descriptions.

You’ll note there’s a complete level crossover between Arthes and Vertruse. This would be problematic as you need to collect a pass from each region to permanently unlock the next, but luckily with Arthes, there is a workaround.

If you go up onto the cliffs by the Edorian Border Crossing (marked on the map above), you can use a Piton to bypass it by climbing up and down the cliff each time you pass. You can also buy and sell trade goods when you trade between the two, which softens the blow of spending a day traveling.

While prerelease interviews suggested that the Pirates of Belerion DLC is after Ludern in terms of difficulty, I would strongly suggest waiting until you have at least completed Grinmere. To be on the safe side, I'd say you want most of your warband to be at or close to level 10.

Some battles both at sea and on land are level 9-10, but you will also face battles of level 11-12 with enemies numbering 20 or more. Especially as you gain a Pirate Reputation and have specific enemies chasing you down for a battle, these battles become almost impossible to avoid. For this reason, make sure to keep a sage save position handy in case you overstretch yourself.
