I've heard xp "Is not split" in D3 parties, but to whom is it given?

If there are a dozen monsters on the screen worth 100xp each, and my partner kills them all with some nuke (while I idly watch) do we each get 1200xp?

If so, and he kills the same batch of monsters while I am very far away, do I still get the xp?

XP is duplicated for each party members within "a screen and a half"1 of the kill, as if each member got the kill themselves. (Though all party members will get quest-end XP regardless of location.)

This is a departure from Diablo 2, where XP was literally divided among party members.

In your example, yes, you each would get 1200 XP, but not if you're far away ("screen and a half").

So you are saying the xp is individual for each party member with a max range of a screen and a half, am I right following this logic? –  Michel May 1 '12 at 1:54
    
Yep, identical as long as you're within range of the kill –  Sean May 1 '12 at 2:10

Is the size of the "screen and a half" based on something in-game or dependent on the player's resolution? –  Matt Chan May 23 '12 at 2:48
    
In-game, but that rough estimate came from Bashiok, a Blizzard CM. If you want him to clarify, you can ask him directly –  Sean May 23 '12 at 3:05
    
Note that any +exp-per-kill bonuses are not duplicated. My friend and I played hardcore, me at level 10 and him at 1. To catch up, he added a bunch of +exp bonuses, while I had none. Though we always stuck together and never died, by the time I was level 20 he was ahead of me. –  BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Jun 6 '12 at 21:12

As long as you are in the same area as the kill occurs, you will each get the full experience for the kill. I believe the no splitting refers to the fact that it it isn't divided by the number of players.
