"When you lose a level, your XP is set to 1 less than your current level needs." - Does this mean if you have just obtained a new level and are drained one, you lose TWO levels? -- Kalon 00:12, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

No. Suppose you just reached 10000 XP, and therefore reached level 11. If you then get drained, you will go down to level 10, and your XP will be set to 9999. If you gain at least one XP before being drained again, you'll be back where you started. (Actually, this is the best time to be drained, because it means you've effectively only lost 1 XP.) -- Killian 01:24, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Exactly how much XP does killing a given monster yield? Dr. 8-Bit 23:42, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

If the monster is at the base level in the appropriate template, then you gain "Base experience" points. If the monster isn't at exactly that level then it's rather complicated, but it'll be somewhere around that base experience value. Higher level always means more experience, lower level always means less. -- Qazmlpok 23:50, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
