3rd. at ~16
party 2-6 ( good exp i say ) alone hard
w/o party 2-4
Ok, I shall answer all your points here.
1st. As you said, the spawn at 1-2 is high and you might die easily. But don't forget, there is Lache there too and he is there to help you. All you have to do seriously, is just get the Bradford's book and passed it to Bradford. You do not really have to fight much.
2nd. At lv.10-12 I believe that doing epi.1 isn't gonna help much. Its time consuming and the exp is rather slow for your lv. Instead you should do recluse forest till you're about lv.12.
Den proceed to H2-6, however, at this point, you just have to stick to the "Hit and run" method and leave it to snow girls to gain the exp for you.
3rd. Yes, at lv.16 you should be doing H2-6. However, as I've said, you do not need to go all out to fight the monsters in the map. All you have to do is just move around the queen and fight the monsters around her. Eventually the monsters in the map will gather below for you to hit. At any point when you're on your last life, you can always just restart the stage. Its that easy.
*Its optional whether you would like to do solo or party in H2-6. If you solo, chances of you getting boxes are higher. But if you party, the exp would be much faster as the exp you're gaining is based on per monster killed.(Either by snow queen, snow girls, your party members or you)
