If my character, or another party member, is knocked unconscious during a fight, do they still receive a share of the experience points if the enemy is killed while they are still unconscious?
XP is divided evenly amongst all party members, conscious or not. (And in fact, present or not - your companions waiting back on the ship will also level up at the same rate.)
Possible Duplicate: Do I ever get xp for my party member's kills? Does party size affect chance of better loot? I was looking around and I didn't find any good source that provides a good explanation (baby steps) on how is experience going to work in Diablo 3 multiplayer. The experience is individual like loot/gold? The members of the party receive extra experience per member in the party? (party bonus) Does monsters give more experience because you are playing in a party?
Possible Duplicate: Do I ever get xp for my party member's kills? One of the significant new differences for Diablo III is that there is no "party" system, and within a game all players are assumed to be in the same party. One of the benefits being that if you are helping another player in a game, by fighting side by side, then you will get experience for doing so. Players in reasonably close proximity share experience Clearly you don't get experience by sitting on your butt in town, at some radius you stop getting experience from your hardworking allies slaying
More Cryptozookeeper: I was going after the ape in the corporate lab when I found a woman hanging from the ceiling of a work room, partially encased in crystals. Scanning her reveals that she's still alive, only unconscious. However, most attempts to interact with her are failures. Not to gloss over the details too much, but I've liberated the ape, and get the feeling that I can leave the area safely—which probably means I won't be coming back. Can the woman be saved, somehow? And if so... how?
Party (the precreated default Party) is now level 11 - 12 and i have entered the Temple of Yak. Most enemies there are really doable for my party, but the Yak Liches are extremely luck dependent. Yak Liches have an attack that affects the whole Party and can knock party members unconscious. If all members are knocked out, its game over... The Yak Master is even worse, his attack outright kills party members, sometimes all six in one attack. The walktroughs do not even mention those monsters, so i have not really an idea what i can do to defend myself. Casting Day of Protection does not have
So I am level 42 now, what if I party with a level 1 player who is just beginning? If I stay near him and don't kill mobs, will he get penalties anyways (don't care about penalties to me)? And if there are penalties, how do they work, compared to if he would play alone? I've read the wiki page, but I still don't understand this situation.
Possible Duplicate: Do I earn less experience or items if I have a follower? In Act 1 of Diablo 3, I encounter a warrior who is later revealed to be a Templar. After I help him find his weapons, he wants to join my party. The only condition is that if I encounter the tomes of his order, I give them to him. What are the benefits of letting the Templar join my party? Are their any drawbacks? Does having a follower increase minion difficulty like when you're playing with other people?
Possible Duplicate: How do I prevent rats from eating a corpse that I left unattended? Also, is this a bad thing? I know you can place unconscious bodies in trashbins in order to have them not count as kills, but does any elevated surface work just as well, i.e. tables and bathtubs? I stored an unconscious body in a bathtub and came back and it was gone, so wasn't sure if it had been eaten or just disappeared.
Possible Duplicate: How does experience work in Dungeon Defenders? In a multiplayer game, if Player 1 deploys a Lighting Tower he will receive the associated XP for every creature it kills. If Player 2 upgrades the tower before the next round, does Player 1 still get all of the XP earned by the tower?
bodies is okay...right? from further experience it appears that, rarely, randomly spawned rats may be enough to kill unconscious people! I found four rats in the general area of a dead guy, however I'm...I'm starting a ghost/non-lethal run of Dishonored and I know I need to avoid rats eating my victims. I've noticed that single rats do not appear to go after corpses, but big swarms definitely do. So... enough numbers to kill an unconscious person.
