I've noticed that I don't gain any experience anymore for certain kinds of monsters, at least there appears no entry in the combat journal. I suspect that the XP formula is level-dependent, so that you don't gain any XP anymore for monsters far below your own level.

Is there anything known about how the experience point system works in the Witcher 2?

That seems like a bug to me.. – DrFish May 24 '11 at 8:39

From what I've seen and found from other discussions:

You get less or more experience depending on the level difference(which makes the game more challenging).

Experience gain is limited by mob type or area(to prevent extreme farming...or as protection, because it's possible in games that due to some bug you get imbalanced experience over and over).

Max level by chapters, I'm not sure abut this, but when you go to complete quest and gain no experience it could be this(makes the game challenging and protects from farming).

Level 35 max level in game(useful for planning skills).

And lastly the plain old bugs that occur in every RPG that tries to give you more freedom.

Are these bugs speculation or have they been confirmed somewhere? – Mana May 27 '11 at 14:36
only speculation,just to keep it as possibility.Fabian's problem is most likely the 2nd bold text up there :) – Arremer May 27 '11 at 14:46
I would really like to see some additional detail, and evidence to back up some of these claims. – sjohnston May 30 '11 at 22:52
Well it is not likely that projectRED will release their exp formula to public so we are back to guessing,I edited post to make it clearer that it is not only my guessing,other people(forums etc) confirmed these but that is still only scraps of information...not enough to go in the details with numbers. – Arremer May 31 '11 at 0:15
