How XP Works
So I’ve come to a point where my hero can solo almost anything (I’m playing artificer), but I always put him in a full stack of hireling (that are obsolete now since my hero just solo kill things).
This makes me wonder on how XP gain after combat works. I’ve done a little test by fighting the same mob stack with four different configurations, and the result are as follows:
- Fighting with a hero + 5 hirelings: Combined XP gain among all units = 640
- Fighting with a hero only: XP gain on the hero = 640
- Fighting with a hero + 1 wisp: XP gain on the hero = 640
- Fighting with a hero + 3 wisps: XP gain on the hero = 640
So, feel free to use those Fantastical units in your stack. Just put a normal unit / apprentice / hero in the stack and you won’t waste any XP.
Edit: Max-level (lv15) normal units still soak XP as if they’re not max-level.
