What’s the price for dying?

Path of Exile mentions that death carries experience penalties on high difficulty levels. Can the experience penalty incur in a level down? What if you already had allocated your passive skill point?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


From this answer and its first comment, death cannot make you lose a level.

Losing levels: Experience lost in this way will never cause a character to drop down a level.

No, you cannot lose a level by incurring the experience penalty upon death. Worst case is you lose all your XP accumulated at your current level and therefore having 0% XP at your current level.
