Final Fantasy XI Experience Charts


Index:



Overview

Characters in Final Fantasy XI advance primarily through defeating monsters within the world of Vana'diel, which provides experience points. The charts here list exactly how much experience is provided by each monster, based on the monster's level. Details are listed for the bonuses to the experience gained in FFXI, such as being in a group, killing multiple monsters in a short period of time, etc.

The base amount of experience that a single solo character gains is 100 experience, when defeating a monster of exactly the same level; a level 5 character who defeats a level 5 monster will receive 100 experience points. All other modifications, either bonuses or penalties, are built around that. Note that a starting character at level 1 will actually be killing monsters lower level than himself (monsters that level 0, -1, or -2). This is done to make it easy for new characters to be able to defeat monsters solo.

As noted in the credits section, these charts are primarily translations from a Japanese website. When there are changes to the original source information, this page will be updated accordingly.

Experience Chain Bonuses
An Experience Chain Bonus is applied when monsters are killed that Check to you as 'Even Match' or higher level, in a given time limit. (For example, if you're level 3 and are in a party with a level 4 character, you DO get an experience chain bonus when killing level 3 monsters, but the level 4 character doesn't.) Each successive monster must be killed in a short amount of time in order to keep gaining an experience chain bonus from each kill. The amount of time available between kills is based on the level of the monster, as listed in the chart below. # Experience Chain Bonuses

Level Difference In A Party

If there is a difference in characters' levels within a party, the experience gained is modified based on the following calculations, with calculation 1 given higher priority than calculation 2. Assuming the highest-leveled character in a party is A,

1. If at least one of the party members is Level 51+, OR the level difference between you and A is 8 or more:

EXP = EXP based on the level difference between the monster and A * your level / A's level.

2. If the above condition does not apply:

EXP = EXP based on the level difference between a monster and A * EXP needed to the next level BY YOU / EXP needed to the next level BY A.




Alliance Experience

EXP = EXP earned based on the level difference of the highest-level character * 1.80-1.84? / Number of characters in the alliance




Beastmasters' Pets

EXP = Normal EXP * 0.7

If a charmed pet is used by a Beastmaster at any time during a fight, the pet's level is considered when determining the highest level in the party; this can reduce the experience for other members in the party with the Beastmaster, but only if the Beastmaster charms higher level mobs. If a BST has a charmed pet at the time of the kill, the Beastmaster himself (and only the Beastmaster) will take a 30% xp reduction; this does not apply to pets summoned with the Call Beast Job Ability.




Monsters That Provide Bonus Experience

A handful of monsters within FFXI provide extra experience when killed, beyond what a normal monster at their level would regularly give. The monsters that are known to provide extra experience are listed below.
