Experience is one of the characters' Attributes in Divinity Original Sin 2. 


Gaining Experience

Experience can be gained by:

  • Completing quests.
  • Exploring new areas.
  • Killing things.



  • Earning enough experience grants a higher level for the character.
  • Recruited characters instantly gain the same amount of experience as its recruiter.
  • In general, all characters in a party always have the same amount of experience, but there are known issues with this.
  • There is no level cap.

In order to complete the game at high difficulty, it is advised that the average party level...

  • ...when escaping Fort Joy Island is at least level 7.
  • ...when leaving Reaper's Coast is at least level 14.
  • ...when leaving the Nameless Isle is at least level 17.
  • ...during the final fight in Arx is at least level 20.



  • Non-player characters have a fixed level. Their level will not change during that chapter.
  • Looted equipment also has a fixed level, this includes equipment looted with Lucky Charm.
  • Vendors restock their wares when the party levels up, to sell higher-leveled equipment. They also refresh their stock every 1 hour.
  • Crafted equipment is the same level as the character who crafted it.
  • When a character levels up, they regain all their Vitality, which is insanely useful during combat.

    • mm anyone know if the classic version of the game distributes the same? I know many things changed with the DE edition, nerfing experience in some areas to keep max experience down. I've never played the original classic version but how does the experience max level stack up in that. In the DE edition max you'll have like 20-21 million experience so level 22, but any one playing the original classic version have any info on THAT experience max levels, etc.

        Hey, just left Reaper’s coast at level 16, but didn’t get any exp, nor when arriving at the Nameless isle. How can that be?

          Guys, se a gente recruta um personagem de origem, eventualmente eles vão sair da equipe para traçar sua própria história?

            A fun thing could be to get so few XP on the ship, so you are still level 1 when you wake up on the beach. Avoid all fight or event which give you xp, untill you have recruited your other 3 teams, since they will still also be lvl 1 and you will then can decide there skills upgrade from lvl 1 and not just from lvl 2. It can make a difference, especially on the Civil Abilities. To enter Fort Joy Ghetto before Dallas and Alexandras kill Magister Atusa, use the latter on the right.

              The thin yellow bar at the very bottom of the screen is your XP progress to the next level. You can also see your XP number in the Character Sheet.
