Experience

Jump to: navigation, search

Experience (often abbreviated exp or xp) is the numeric stat you need in order to level your character. It can be obtained by completing various tasks like killing mobs.

Cap

A cap is the maximum amount of experience you can get at once (under normal circumstances). As your total level increases, so to will your cap. The maximum normal cap is 250k xp.

Overcap

It is possible to get more experience than your cap by defeating a particularly hard mob for your level. This is rarely happens more than a few times for the same mob. In particular, getting twice your normal cap as a reward is referred to as a doublecap.

Denting

see global exp thacker

Repeatedly killing the same mobs and running the same area will reduce the amount of experience you earn. This is not such a problem for low level characters but becomes more apparent the higher you level. One sign of this is, upon killing a mob, receiving the message

You don't learn much from this battle.

Rotation

In order to avoid the affects of denting, high level players will vary the locations and mobs they run. Low level players may need to rotate between 2-4 areas while higher level characters may need to rotate 15 or more to avoid getting dented experience.
