The Mystic Academy is a great place to learn and gain experience. If you are new to Mystic Adventure, you should read everything in the first few rooms and follow any instructions. You will also want to wander through the Library and read stuff there.

The Cages are a great place to gain your first 6 or so levels. After that, the Training Ground is good experience for levels 6-12. The Dungeon contains aggressive monsters, and you should not go in there alone until at least level 12.
