    I got a full group with 6 characters and now I don´t get any xp at all for kills. It started in the underdark with the thralls, I didnt get any xp for them and after I emerged from the underdark I haven't got any xp for kills at all. I have cleared all of Kuldahar and also Chult but neither the undead nor the Yu-tians have given me any xp..
    Is it supposed to be like this? It seems wrong.. Is there anyone who knows how to fix it?

    This is correct. It is because your party has now reached too high a level for the enemies you are fighting.

    If you don't like this then you can:
    - level squat (i.e. don't level all your characters up as soon as you are able to - to keep your average party level down)
    - axe one of your characters and replace him with a level one character (will make your average party level plummet)
    - fiddle with the moncrate.2da table to adjust the XP you get at various levels (just don't make the XP too high otherwise you'll get too powerful and it'll be silly)
    - install the mod (can be found on SP's IWD2 page) which includes an already tweaked moncrate.2da table to provide at least some XP for all kills.

    Hmmm... I thought of that too but I was "certain" that the wightlords and those high end undead at least should give me something. But you are right, I put in a couple of rookies in my team and it sure helped. I gained a huuuuge amount of xp whit two oldies and 4 rookies. Stupid game.. It's really boring to wipe out all of Kuldahar whitout a single point of xp...
    I think I'll go for the mod. If I have the skills to find/use it. :p

    But thanks. Nice to get some help when you're stuck on something. :)

    That's what we're here for!

    Yeah, there it is no fun getting no XP for fights so the mod makes sure you get at least a token amount for every fight.

    BUt how the hell did that happen? If you haven't level squatted and are playing with a full 6 member party you just couldn't have reached high enough levels to absolutely NOT get XP for kills.
    What are your charecter levels?

    He said he added 4 new guys, so I guess he's playing with two.

    Kam: Nope. I did so just to check if that was the problem. I have played with the same 6 guys from the start.

    Shrikant: Yes, something like that was my thoughts too. I haven't levelsquatted or done anything special. Just played it straight through.. When I first get to Kuldahar all 6 of my characters are lvl 14. If that's to high so far in the game something very strange have happened..

    And. Now I use the extended table and get 100 xp for most of the undead in Kuldahar. At least it's something. :)

    Well Panopticon, I've had the same experience as you, now I use the Ease-of-use Mod to relax my nerves. Not getting xp for your hard work certainly is frustrating :)
