Metal Rookie Corps

From Ethene

Metal Rookie Corps is a permanent, in-game event where you have a 100% chance to encounter Rookie Metal Slimes, Rookie Liquid Metal Slimes and Rookie King Metal Slimes in battle during certain times of the day, which provide ample experience points when defeated. These engagements can only be encountered on servers 9 and 10, which are dedicated to new and returning players. These events are a great way to level up both new and existing vocations while you have access to these servers. It's generally advised to take advantage of these events until about LV40, where the experience gained no longer makes much of an impact.

Note that the metal monsters from this event provide less experience than their normal counterparts seen outside of the event, but still provide players with plenty of experience at low levels.


This event occurs every 2.5 hours for a total length of 30 minutes. You can check the schedule in one of two ways:

  • In-game, navigate to Misc. > Play Guide > How to Play. You can check the Metal Rookie Army schedule for the next 10 appearances here
  • Browse to the Hiroba website. Times on Hiroba are in JST (Japanese Standard Time)


The following Dracky notice is sent to players logged in 10 minutes before the event starts:

English: Monsters are stirring on servers 9 and 10!
Japanese: サーバー09と10で モンスターがざわついてる!
