Nearly all classes automatically have their levels set to 10 after tutorial completion.
Some classes will already start at level 10 and their respective tutorials will abridge levels 10 through 30.
Characters such as Shade, Cadena, Illium, Pathfinder, Hoyoung and Ark have their Tutorial Questlines until level 30.
It is strongly recommended that you follow those questlines instead.

Farming in the Arcane River is different from farming in the rest of the game.
The maps you should go to are based on the amount of AF you have, and how far you've come in the Arcane River.
When choosing your farming location, keep in mind the following:
- Never go to maps to which you don't have 100% of the AF needed.
- Having 150% or more of the required AF means that you deal increased damage
- Having 150% or more of the required AF means that you take 1 damage from monsters (including elites)
- If you are playing a fragile/weak class, choose maps to which you have 150% of the needed AF.
- Experiment with different maps, characters have different reach and mobility. Try to find a map that works for your character.
- Use the Battle Analisys to keep track of your EXP and Meso rates, so that you can collect objective data over which map is best.
30AF: Weathered Land of Rage
40AF: Fire Zone
60AF: Below the Cave
100AF: Five Color Hill: Mottled Forest 1

320AF: Between Frost and Thunder 2

Morass is generally disregarded as a farming location. It contains mobs of similar levels to that of Arcana, but in terrible-for-training platform arrangements, and at much higher AF requirements.
It still contains some noteworthy locations for people who exclusively train solo, without the help of Fury Totems or Kannas. Morass might also be an alternative in desperate times, such as a 2x EXP event in which all maps in Arcana are full.
440AF: Bully Blvd. 2
480AF: Shadowdance Hall 4
520AF: That Day in Trueffet 3
Disclaimer: I have yet to go past Morass myself in my own adventures, meaning everything below has not been personally verified by me. However, the following information isn't just a bunch of blind guesses over which map name I thought sounded cool. It is a set list of maps built with the help of my current and former guildmates, and community feedback.
If you decide to follow through this portion of the guide, it is strongly recommended, more so than in the previous section, that you utilize Battle Analisys and try out a wide range of locations to check if the given maps are best for you.
600AF: Mirror-touched Sea 2 (The better of the MTS maps)
600AF: Mirror-touched Sea 3 (Similar to MTS2, but usually has higher burning)
600AF: Mirror-touched Sea 6
640AF: Radiant Temple 3 (Another option for those without Fury Totem/Kanna)
670AF: Last Horizon 2
730AF: Void Current 4
820AF: Labyrinth of Suffering Deep Core 1
880AF: End of the World 1-4
