How do you guys find the patience to level every single character to 50?

I only play one character, Jake, and I was lucky enough to be able to get teachables I wanted from the Shrine. Recently, however, I've wanted to get some teachables that were not in the shrine, and good god, it's a pain in the ass to level up those characters.

At least with killers, they have different play styles, so you can play them directly to get BP and it's fun because it's a different playstyle. If I want to level up Nancy, I can either play her directly and essentially throw away the perks I have on Jake, or I can play Jake and not get anything for him because all the BP is going to Nancy.

How do you guys find the patience to do it?

    daily missions, archives list, streamers, BBQ & Chili. Just farm and dump them into the other survivors or killers you want to level. Its a good idea in general to unlock everyone's teachables.

    I edited the title and OP. It's more a question of how you have the patience to level everyone up to 50.

  • OhMyWordsOhMyWords Member Posts: 230

    never 50 survivors unless you want the perks

    i used to prestige killers but now i realized that's waste of time so i just don't i save the bp up for pyramid head and then leave it i dont know why

    my deathslinger is still level 1 and some killers are stuck below level 15

  • SpookyStabbySpookyStabby Member Posts: 621

    I don't. Ghost Fave, Pig and Legion were my first. Pyramid Head because I also main him now but others were strictly for perks. Spirit(Kinda use her and Nurse too) Clown, Huntress... as soon as I get those teachables I ignore them. I use the Shrine when possible but yeesh... that random luck and wait...

    I usually play the characters I want/main and then start levelling the characters of which I want the teachables. 1 survivor at a time.

    I don't think I've ever touched Adam or Jake, but I do have their teachables.

    The best method I'd say is to grind as much bp's as you can and then spend them all on the character who has the teachables you want. And repeat. It's pretty tedious.

    Been trying to get Iron Will, Dead Hard and Resilience on Cheryl, but it's such a pain. Game keeps putting the most useless perks in my bloodweb.

    This is one of a few reasons why I don't run teachables on survivors...too much grind for what would amount to a skin if I did use teachables. Killers are at least unique.

  • KaijuKaiju Member Posts: 519

    Since I have everyone p3 50 I won't look asymmetrical. Pretty much that

  • rottmeisterrottmeister Member Posts: 317

    Oh, how to find the patience? I didn't see that.

    Ermm I have a few builds I main so I mostly play with those. Sometimes I mix and match some perks to create an *interesting* build.

    I started playing this game with a group of friends so time flew by. I already had a great amount of teachables before I began my solo journey last september.

    I’m not super far into the game, but I just do it instead of getting newer characters. Unless of course it’s someone like Cheryl, which I got her nurse outfit, I still plan on getting her to prestige 3. I guess the patience really comes from nowhere. I wouldn’t even call it patience. It’s just the whole fact of, “hey, you get this character to level 50, you get a decent looking outfit piece in return.” If I won’t ever play the character, then I will only get them to lvl 40, such as David, or Jake. My Claudette is pres 2, Meg pres 1, Dwight pres 1, Nea pres 1, and Cheryl pres 1. I just like the idea of having “special” outfits for everyone.

    I have all survivors and killers at rank 50. I've been leveling up the survivors/killers who appear in tomes to make challenges easier.. I have most perks on all killers and probably half or so on all survivors.

    Devotion 5, 43 I don't prestige

    I find lvling survivor to be boring. Id rather play as a killer and pour the points into the person I'm lvling. If I'm farming I always run bbq on my killer even though I prefer Whispers for tracking. As survivor, the first one I P3ed was David. Just so I would have constant access to WGLF to cut the grind down. I tend to get more points when playing killer. As survivor there's those moments where the killer never found me, people didn't get hooked so I got zero altruism, or the killer face camped me. As killer I feel I have more control over how much bp I get.

    One reason I took to this game over FT13th. Each killer is actually unique. All the Jason's function the same way. Just some are better then others at somethings.

  • steezo_desteezo_de Member Posts: 935

    Since you main killer, use whichever one makes you the most BP with and farm bloodwebs. I wouldn't ######### myself over by using fresh characters to earn BP when others do the job better. Even if you want to play survivor, just use your main.

  • luka2211luka2211 Member Posts: 1,433

    RPG games my friend,RPG games.

  • OrionOrion Member Posts: 21,675

    I have a ######### ton of those, but I just can't bring myself to regularly play RPGs where grinding is part of the core game design and necessary if you want to win.

  • Dr_TrautsDr_Trauts Member Posts: 704

    i play surv to chill so i dont tryhard it for points. i just play killer and put the points i get from that into survs

  • KingFrostKingFrost Member Posts: 3,014

    You only really need to get everyone to 40. I played a lot of games, and now everyone is level 40. Pig and Meg both have every perk. Granted, on Switch we have two less characters to level. Though I do think the grind should be lessened significantly. Reduce BP cost by 1000 for each thing.

  • ExorExor Member Posts: 235

    What I usually do is get to 1 mil BPs and then always just spend around 200k at a time, it feels so much better knowing you only need to farm 200k BPs instead of 1mil each time.

  • Your_Worst_NIGHTMAREYour_Worst_NIGHTMARE Member Posts: 38

    If you play as killer, keep barbecue & chili for bonus bp, as survivor, combine Borrowed time w/ WGLF, plus the ooferings, and luckily, a blood stream party that someone might put.

  • Your_Worst_NIGHTMAREYour_Worst_NIGHTMARE Member Posts: 38

    And, wait until you gather close to 1kk bps, then spend them.

  • Dead_by_GadflyDead_by_Gadfly Member Posts: 3,774

    This. I have to do something with all those points anyway. Honestly tho i enjoy going in with nothing

  • JimPickensJimPickens Member Posts: 158

    P3ing Myers was fun. He was the first killer i ever mained and i was still new to the game and wasn't worried about leveling up anyone else. After him and i'd been playing the game for awhile I only really leveled characters to 10 for adapt and even that was a pain. I did eventually P3 ghostface because that mask, but it was a long and painful process. After about a year of playing the only other character i have at level 50 is clown because he has like 10 puddings but he hasn't got BBQ 3 yet. Im currently leveling Cheryl and she's almost level 50 but idk if ill prestige her for the same reason I'm not going to prestige clown, the perk system sucks.

    I heard they were going to change the perk system to where they will all only have one level but that was months ago and it seems like the simplest QOL change they could do so im afraid they may have just scrapped the idea

  • OniWantsYourMacaroniOniWantsYourMacaroni Member Posts: 5,795

    Well,there's your answer.You simply dislike grinding whereas others like it.

  • OrionOrion Member Posts: 21,675

    Not really, no. Some people dislike the grind but still put up with it. I'm trying to understand why.

  • pseudechispseudechis Member Posts: 2,105

    It strikes me that killers get more blood points less pips and survivors get more pips and less blood points. Correct me if I’m off.

    The grind for killer hasn’t been so bad especially with BBQ and chilli, which is almost a must as other bp boosting perks are situational And buff only one aspect where B&C can be useful on any killer and gives bonus to all bps.

    The thought of doing that on survivor, ugh. Although you can spend bps on either side right? I’d probably use my killers to level my survivors.

    I’ve tried survivor twice and have been carried to an escape by team mates both times. Potatoes of the world unite!

  • MrsGhostfaceMrsGhostface Member Posts: 844

    I almost have all my survivors P3, it sucks playing characters I don’t like but I’m a perfectionist :(

  • BossBoss Member, Trusted Posts: 13,578

    I just play Wraith.

    Got more than enough saved up on to play him for actual months without having to spend BP on him for more Add-ons.

    Spending some time leveling a Killer to 40 for their Teachables is almost nothing to me.
