Shared experience means that the experience points a creature is yielding plus a bonus is distributed equally between all members of a party.
To share experience points, the leader of your party must activate this feature via the context menu. If shared experience is activated, an experience bonus of 20% is granted if the defeated creature usually yields at least 20 experience points. If party members of 2 vocations are involved in the fight, the bonus is raised to 30%; 3 different vocations yield a bonus of 60%; and if party members of all 4 vocations participate, the bonus will even be raised to 100%. To activate shared experience, the leader must not have a battle sign and the following requirements need to be fulfilled:
- Only characters that are of similar levels can share experience when hunting together. To be more precise, the lowest character in a party may not have less than two-thirds of the levels of the highest character. This means a level 40 can share experience with a level 60 but not with a level 20; or a level 200 can share experience with a level 300.
- The distance of all party members to the leader must be smaller or equal to 30 fields, this works also if you are one floor up or down.
- Finally, all party members must be actively involved. This means they must either have healed another member or attacked an aggressive monster.
