The Prototype encounter at the Ruins of Lost Time - there's a slightly hidden area if you go to the right from the entrance instead of heading straight forward to where the automatons are. If you have a high-Effect Treasure Grimoire with the EXP bonus trait Prototype will give 5000~6000 EXP on Easy above level 90, which means you'll get a level every two fights or so. On Easy with a decent set of equipment Wilbell can wipe the encounter in two actions (All-Range Sword -> Assist to get into Burst, next player turn tag in Wilbell, All-Range Sword to kill); Hardcore gives more EXP but you have to actually fight them so it takes longer anyway.

You can respawn it by going to the Geofront, warping to the room with Silver Dragon, using a swing to wipe out all five normal enemies in that room, and returning to Stellard. You don't need to bother Silver Dragon, that's just the closest room with five enemies in it.

If you're already level 70+ and have decent equipment it shouldn't take more than 30 or 45 minutes to hit 99 this way.

1. Craft Treasure Grimoire with EXP bonus (I think it's earth element with 50-79 or something like that?) and equip them.
2. Kill Silver Dragon, Pheonix, Prototype 0-2, Servant of the Beast King (or something like that), etc.
3. Swing-kill 5 mobs.
4. Return to city.
5. Repeat steps 2-4.

Alternatively use Strong Enemy Encounter in final location (where Final boss is located) with 80 LVL and farm them. You can farm them even after defeating last boss (at least in Shallistera case) and before returning to town for ending.

Silver Dragon gives very little EXP by default and plummets once you outlevel it. Phoenix is level 75 and only gives 4800 EXP, Servant of the Beast King is level 80 (same as Prototype) but is only one enemy that gives 5600 EXP. All three Prototypes are listed as giving 6000 EXP so SotBK presumably gives under a third as much and Phoenix even less. Unless you only get EXP for a single Prototype or something weird like that.

Strong enemy army in the final dungeon takes kinda long even if you're oneshotting everything and still gives worse experience than Prototype, plus the field effect is kinda glitchy and there's a couple reports about it causing the game to freeze.

One thing to keep in mind is that life tasks do not decrease in exp based on your levels, so if you can save the high exp one like 5000-10000 XP until you are high level (i.e., when monsters stop giving good xp), then you get the most bang for your buck.

How do you even beat the Prototype, I tried it on hard and they heal 100% of their HP every time that infinite healing card comes around. I had gotten the center one down to like 2000 hp and that card comes around and it heals for over 30,000 hp and I'm forced to start over again.
