XP Farming

XP Farming in Divinity Original Sin Enhanced Edition is difficult as enemies do not respawn. There is a finite amount of XP to go around. The best way to gain experience is through Quests, killing monsters (the first time) and exploring.

However, there are some locations which you can use to obtain more XP at once than normal. These are listsed below.


Known XP Farming Locations:

  • Frederic's Cave Ghost Farming
    • During the quest Frederick's Blood Stone.
    • The main ghost in the cave keeps resurrecting additional small ghosts. As long as you don't kill the main Ghost, you can just keep farming the smaller ones to gain XP.
    • You can use sneaking mode or invisibility to help you stay undetected. That is the key to getting the main Ghost to small more ghosts.


  • King Boreas Elemental Farming
    • The King Boreas has 4 phases during his fight, in which he changes to each of the elements.
    • During each elemental phase, he spawns additional mobs of that element (nearly infinitely) as long as you are not killing him in that element.
    • If you can endure the fight longer, you have a chance at farming those mobs for additional XP in each elemental phase.

  • Malbini the Bard's Crab Underlings Farming
    • Malbini resides alongside Madame Loenestra and Kirill in a camp in Luculla Forest, northeast of Roy.
    • He keeps summoning a single Crab Underling (3150 xp) every three turns.

      1. Get a blood stone
      2. Put it in a container
      3. Make sure the container is on the ground, not on you
      4. Take control of a companion (Neither source hunter: so Madora, Jahan…)
      5. Use the blood stone in the container, and use it again, and again, and again… (yes baby this is a glitch)
      Since xp given scales with level, you will always level up after about 70 uses. Move around like 20 meters away after a few levels because every use drops an inert stone and may slow or crash the game after it accumulates, also don’t use active search and consider doing this in an empty zone you don’t go often (Cyseal beach, dungeon etc…)

        this page is missing maradino's lair. when you fight him, he summons an ally every round and you can kill the allies over and over for 4080-4535 xp per kill. maradino does nothing else except stand there and summon...and occasionally throws a fireball ( every 4-5 rounds)
