From Dofus

There are three kinds of experience that a player can gain: class, profession, and guild. Class and profession experience help to advance the player’s character and profession level, while guild experience helps to advance the level of the player’s guild. Class experience is gained by defeating monsters, completing quests, and using certain scrolls. Profession experience is gained by practicing your profession and using certain scrolls. Guild experience is only gained by donating experience points from members defeating monsters

Class Experience

Defeating monsters is the primary method of gaining class experience and advancing your character to higher levels. Each monster has a maximum amount of experience that can be gained by defeating it; this maximum is also called the monster's base experience. However, the only way to gain the maximum experience is to defeat the monster in a balanced fight. A fight is considered balanced under the following conditions:

  • Total monster level is not lower than 5 below total player level and not higher than 10 above.
  • For groups of monsters, the level of at least one monster multiplied by 2.5 needs to be higher than the total player level.

(Note: "Balanced" in this context refers only to character levels. Don't automatically assume that entering a fight where the character levels are balanced means that you have a "balanced" chance of being victorious.)


What follows is a more detailed explanation of how base experience is modified by the levels of the combatants.

1 player vs 1 monster

The simplest situation. The monster, like all monsters, has an experience value. LM is the level of the monster, LP is the level of the player.

  • If LM > LP + 10, modify by math
  • If LP > LM + 5, modify by math
  • If LP > LM * 2.5, modify by math

1 player vs X monsters

A bit more complicated. Since the total monster level is no longer the same as the highest monster level, have to separate the concepts. LTM is the total monster level, while LHM is the highest monster level.

  • If LTM > LP + 10, modify by math
  • If LP > LTM + 5, modify by math
  • If LP > LHM * 2.5, modify by math

X players vs X monsters

Total group experience seems to be calculated as above, using total group level in place of character level. After total group experience is calculated an additional modifier is applied for each member of the party as below, before wisdom and guild modifiers are applied.

LG = total group level

LP / LG

Thus, each member of the group receives a percentage of the group's total experience equal to the percentage of the total group level that is made up by their level.

Experience Awarded From Monsters

When a monster is defeated, its base experience is modified as above. The amount of experience is then further modified by the character's wisdom and guild tax (if any):

  • Character XP = base XP * (1 - guild tax) * (1 + Wisdom / 100)
  • Guild XP: see Guild Experience

The actual XP also depends on the number of stars displayed for the group, and any Fighting Challenges completed.

Experience Awarded From Scrolls

A character can also gain experience by using experience scrolls. These scrolls are global drops; you might also be able to buy them at a scroll sellroom. A character's wisdom will increase the amount of experience gained from a scroll. (Tip: Get the highest wisdom possible before using the scroll. Equip all your +Wisdom equipment and use any boost food which you may have).

Experience at different levels

For the same level mob, a level 117 will gain 1% more experience than a level 116, while wearing the same amount of wisdom. However, for any given level, being one level higher means that would need a certain percent (the exact amount does not increase in a regular manner) more exp than you previously did to level up; by level 198, you require a painful 7% more experience to level up than you did did at level 197. Hence, it is important to obtain optimum wisdom bonuses on your gear towards the epic levels. The difficulty of levelling increases dramatically from level 182 onwards.

Fallout

(Redirected to Experience points article)

From The Vault

Experience points (short XP) are a measurement for how your character is progressing. The player character can earn experience points for killing creatures and solving quests. They are used to determine when a character should gain a new level. Different amounts of experience points are awarded for killing more dangerous creatures. For example, in Fallout 3, killing a deathclaw will get you 50 experience points while killing a radroach will give you 1 experience point. Experience points can also be gained for disarming mines and traps, picking locks, hacking computers, passing speech challenges and occasionally doing sections of a quest.

Fallout 3 difficulty modifier

Changing the difficulty level will also change experience gained from killing enemies. On Very Hard you will receive 150% of the regular experience for a kill, while a kill on Very Easy will only yield 50%. For example, a Deathclaw is worth 25 XP on Very Easy, 50XP on Normal and 75XP on Very Hard.

While this means that you can gain up to three times as much experience from fights on Very Hard compared to Very Easy, this is somewhat compensated by the enemies being much tougher. In the end, it depends on the player´s skills and play style which difficulty setting allows for faster leveling. Some people play on very easy until their enemy is about to die and then change the difficulty to very hard and finish them off to get the XP amount from being on the very hard difficulty.

However, the amount of XP earned for dispatching a single enemy is capped at 98; this can happen frequently on the Very Hard difficulty after killing powerful enemies such as Enclave Soldiers and Feral Ghoul Reavers.

Similarly, on Very Easy and Easy, weak enemies like the Radroach and Bloatfly are worth no XP at all.

Guild Wars

Up to date as of February 01, 2010
(Redirected to Experience article)

From GuildWiki

Experience points are the primary reward for adventuring in Guild Wars. Whenever a player kills enemies while adventuring or completes quests or missions, they are rewarded with experience points. They represent a character becoming more experienced (and more powerful) as they achieve more in the game world. After acquiring a certain amount of experience, players can level up and become stronger in their profession.

To examine the amount of experience a character has, press 'H' to open the Hero Panel. The total experience points acquired by this character will be shown in a horizontal bar. Hovering the mouse cursor over that bar will show the amount of experience needed for the next level or Skill Point.

Experience Points are often referred to as XP.

Experience from killing opponents

Opponents can be monsters in an explorable area or opposing players in PvP/GvG Battles. When an opponent is killed, party members get experience for the kill. Note that only those players participating in the battle will be taken into account when dividing experience. To participate in the battle you must have been in aggro range of the enemies, used skills against the enemies or used buffs on allies which participate in the battle. If a foe receives most of its damage from other sources than the party - NPCs (not including henchmen), other foes, Edge of Extinction, etc - the party will not gain experience from that foe unless the other foe's group is killed first. The amount of experience is scaled up or down for each party member depending on his/her level compared to the the slain foe. This is the formula used by the game:

Image:XP_formula4.png

where "o" is the level of your opponent, "y" is your level, and "a" is the number of people in your party.

In other words:

  • The base xp of killing an enemy is 100.
  • If player is higher in level than foe subtract 4, if foe is higher, add 4, if equal, add nothing.
  • If player is higher in level than foe subtract 16 * level difference, if foe is higher, add that amount, if equal, add nothing.
  • The sum of the above three steps is divided by living party members (including henchmen and Heroes).
  • Every party member's XP is calculated individually.
  • The result can never be less than 0; if it would be, use 0 instead.
  • The final result is rounded to the nearest integer, half points being rounded down.

Example: A level 17 character and a level 20 character are adventuring together. They slay a level 18 monster. The experience given the level 17 character will be:

(100 + 4 + 16 x (18-17)) / 2 = 60 XP

The experience given the level 20 character will be:

(100 - 4 - 16 x (20-18)) / 2 = 32 XP

This essentially means players learn less from killing "easy" monsters than when they kill "hard" monsters. In game terms, you get more experience from higher level enemies.

Note that there does appear to be a cap on XP earned per monster (before party division) of 280 XP. This is likely to dissuade powerleveling. In practice, it means that XP for killing monsters caps out at 11 levels above your own. So if you are level 1, killing a level 12 monster nets you the same XP (before party division) as killing a level 24 monster.

Also note that XP awarded for killing level 0 mobs follow another formula: (30-5*y)/a (same rounding and no negative results). This might be because these mobs are far weaker than even level 1 ones.

Finally, up to three multiplicators can increase the final XP reward. They are applied after the cap.

  • Bosses reward double XP (applies before the rounding).
  • Insight scrolls multiply the final value by between 1.5 and 3, depending on the type of the active scroll. Only one type of scroll can be active at any time (applies after rounding).
  • In hard mode, everyone gains 50% more XP.
  • Bounties in normal mode double the XP reward for killing a foe of a certain species (applies after rounding).

The total resulting multiplicator can not be larger than 7. Therefore, the maximum amount of XP a player can gain from killing a single monster is 280XP * 7 = 1960 XP

For the results of the formula in table format, see the experience table below.

Experience from quests and missions

Experience Points rewarded by quests will be listed in the quest dialog window before accepting it and in the Quest Log after that. Tyrian missions always reward 1,000 XP for completing the primary objective and another 1,000 for the bonus objective. The experience gained from Canthan and Elonian missions depends on the level of completion of that mission (standard, expert, or master's). Experience from quests and missions is for the player alone and is not shared with other party members, henchmen, or pets. Heroes, however, do get experience rewards for missions and quests when the player does. Quest rewards vary; early ones give as little as 50 XP, but up to 50,000 for the most difficult ones such as the Titan Quests.

Experience and levels

While a character's maximum level is 20, further experience will still give Skill Points. There is no limit to the number of skill points that can be gained in this way. Some people keep track of this by saying what their level would be if there was no cap. For example, level 20 with 12 extra skill points would be called a virtual level 32. However, these virtual levels do not translate into benefit in-game because the experience you get at virtual level 32 for killing say a level 26 enemy is the same as the experience you would get at virtual level 50 since you are still really level 20.

The formula for the additional experience required to level is:

CurrentLevel * 600 + 1,400

This is capped at a maximum of 15,000.

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010
(Redirected to Experience article)

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

A player levelling up.

Experience, commonly abbreviated as Exp or XP, is a measure of progress in a certain skill. It is usually obtained by performing tasks related to that skill. After gaining a certain amount of experience, players will advance to the next level in that skill, which can result in new abilities, among other things.

Contents

Gaining Experience

The old style (prior to Level-up Messages update) of a player reaching level 70 in Mining.
The skills interface after the interface update.
The skills interface prior to the interface update.
How a level 99 in a skill appears after the interface update.

Experience in a skill is obtained by performing a task related to that skill. Experience can also be gained by performing a task unrelated to the skill, such as completing a quest, participating in a random event, or playing a minigame or miniquest.

  • When a player rubs a lamp from a random event gift, the player gains experience equal to the level of the skill they select times 10. (E.g. a player's Woodcutting level is 50; they rub the lamp, choose Woodcutting, and receive 500 Woodcutting experience.)
  • When a player reads the Book of knowledge from the Surprise Exam random event, they receive to their chosen skill their current level times 15. (E.g. if a player's Attack level is 50, they would receive 750 experience from reading the book if they chose Attack.)

Players who help others using the Assist System can earn a maximum of 30,000 total experience every 24 hours, although the experience may be shared among many skills. Some skills cannot be shared through the Assist System (namely gathering and combat skills - Attack and Mining).

Players can continue receiving experience after level 99 in a skill: up to a maximum of 200 million experience. Once a player reaches this limit, they can continue using the skill but receive no additional experience. The maximum total experience is 4.8 billion (4,800,000,000) when a player has 200 million experience in all 24 skills. Currently, no player has reached this.

Until the Skills Interface update (on 12 November 2007), players with a level 99 skill could view the experience it would take them to earn level 100. However, even when "level 100" was "reached", the actual level remained at 99.

The experience gain rates one may obtain varies very much between skills. For example, with 99 agility it is difficult to get much over 70k agility xp per hour without brawling gloves, while making summoning pouches can give over 800k summoning xp per hour.

Exponential Growth

The amount of experience needed for the next level increases by approximately 10% each level. For example, 83 experience is required for advancement to level 2, while 91 experience is then required for advancement to level 3. The difference between 83 and 91 is 8. 10% of 83 is 8.3, which is approximately 8.

Note that a 10% growth factor may seem slow, but, as with all exponential growth, it expands rapidly to a massive 13,034,431 experience needed for level 99. Level 85 requires one quarter of the experience needed for Level 99 and Level 92 is the halfway mark, requiring 6,517,253 experience. This clearly demonstrates the experience gap that grows rapidly at higher levels. To gain 7 levels, one must gain all of the experience they gained to get to their starting level; thus, 92-99 is the same as 1-92.

The varying amount of experience needed to get from one level to another can cause some surprising experience rates to get from one level to another. For example, getting from level 98 to 99 is equal to getting from level 1 to level 75. However, it is worth noting that higher level activities in many cases award more experience than lower level ones, evening out the actual amount of time spent leveling at high levels compared to low levels a little.

Starting from level 28, the experience of getting to next level is approximately equal to 10% of experience of current level. It is still decreasing though, but much slower than the rate before level 28.

Combat Experience

Combat skills

To calculate the experience gain for combat skills, a simple equation can be used:

Experience earned math
where d = damage dealt to an opponent

This equation does not work for some opponents such as random events which give significantly less experience.

Hitpoints

To calculate the experience gain for Hitpoints, another simple equation can be used:

Experience earned math
where d = damage dealt to an opponent

Monster Experience

An upper bound to the number of monsters required to level up a combat skill can be calculated as follows:

Number of monsters math
where E = experience required to level up
and H = monster's number of hitpoints

Note that this only gives an upper bound because monsters may recover some hitpoints during the battle, in which case more than H hitpoints are dealt.

Relationship with Level

Equations

The equation below calculates exactly the minimum experience needed for a given level:

Experience Required math , where L = current skill level
Note that math means the greatest integer less than or equal to x.

In computer code this could be written as (an example is given using the PHP language):

function getXP($lvl)
{
    $total = 0;
    for ($i = 1; $i < $lvl; $i++)
    {
        $total += floor($i + 300 * pow(2, $i / 7));
    }

    return floor($total / 4);
}

The above equation can be approximated with minimal rounding error as:

Approximate Experience Required math , where L = skill level

This approximation can then be used to find the maximum additional experience required to level up:

Additional Experience Required to Level Up math , where L = current level
Example

You want to find the experience that it would take to level up from 28 Strength to 29 Strength:

Additional Experience Required to Level Up math

So it would take at most 1207 experience points to get from level 28 to level 29.

Table

The following table shows the relationship between level, the experience required for that level, and the experience difference from the previous level:

Level Exp. Exp. Diff Level Exp. Exp. Diff Level Exp. Exp. Diff Level Exp. Exp. Diff
1 0 N/A 26 8,740 898 51 111,945 10,612 76 1,336,443 126,022

Tibia

Up to date as of February 05, 2010
(Redirected to Experience article)

From TibiaWiki

Almost all creatures in Tibia give some experience points when they are slain. The amount of experience points earned by killing a creature depends roughly on how difficult it is to defeat that creature. It varies from a Penguin which will give 1 single experience up to the Juggernaut which will give 8,700 experience when killed. There are also a lot different kind of bosses in Tibia, which might wield even more experience (including Inquisition Bosses). There are also some creatures that give no experience at all, those are no challenge to kill since they don't fight back when attacked.

All characters start without experience points when they first enter the game, on a small island south of Rookgaard. By doing The Beginning Quest they get experience, on Rookgaard they can kill monsters which give experience, which can become a very large number. The experience is represented by a characters level. On the official website is the full experience table where is listed how much experience is needed to reach a certain level.

A player with a Premium Account will receive extra experience (+50%) while the Stamina is between 42:00 and 41:01.


Find out more about your experience by using the Experience Formula.

Double Experience

Sometimes, to compensate days in which DDoS attacks occurred or to celebrate dates like Christmas, CipSoft may establish a period in which monsters yield double the experience they would normally do when they are killed.

This has happened twice - first time from November 27th 2007 to December 4th 2007, and second time from March 18th 2009 to March 25th 2009. The first time it was added as compensation for DDoS attacks.
