There are three kinds of experience that a player can gain: class, profession, and guild. Class and profession experience help to advance the player character and profession level, while guild experience helps to advance the level of the player guild. Class experience is gained by defeating monsters, completing quests, and using certain dofus kamas. 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.
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 base experience. However, the only way to gain kamas and 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. Do not automatically assume that entering a fight where the character levels are balanced means that you have a balanced chance of being victorious.
A character can also gain experience by using the more cheap kamas. These gold are global drops; you might also be able to buy dofus kamas at a gold sell room. Character 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 dofus gold 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 which 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 at level 197. Hence, it is important to obtain optimum wisdom bonuses on your gear towards the epic levels. The difficulty of leveling increases dramatically from level 182 onwards.
