You get more exp if you can kill the mob solo, afterall it is harder to do it alone. > Is this normal, and can someone please tell me how the exp is basically > calculated. I have look through the code, and am still stumped. > Not grouped: damage() in fight.c exp = MIN(max_exp_gain, GET_EXP(victim) / 3); /* Calculate level-difference bonus */ if (IS_NPC(ch)) exp += MAX(0, (exp * MIN(4, (GET_LEVEL(victim) - GET_LEVEL(ch)))) >> 3); else exp += MAX(0, (exp * MIN(8, (GET_LEVEL(victim) - GET_LEVEL(ch)))) >> 3); exp = MAX(exp, 1); ^ | This is the line that applies when players get exp | The most exp a solo char can get from killing a mob is when his 8 or more levels lower then the mob. In that case he gets: exp = mob_exp / 3 + ((mob_exp / 3) * 8) / 8 and that is the same as 2/3 of the mobs experience. Grouped: group_gain() in fight.c base = MAX(1, GET_EXP(victim) / (3 * tot_members)); base is the exp every member in the group gets. > Also, what exactly does the prot from evil spell do?
