I'm a little lost on this one - how can I determine what level the mobs are that I'm fighting, and additionally, how can I see the XP reward from killing in each one?

I MIGHT be able to determine this by watching the XP bar grow, but that's not very useful or easy. And I still cannot determine the level.


I don't know of any way to access this. I did a quick search hoping that there'd be results on some type of combat log (similar to WOW, which shows stats on damage, status change, and XP) But from my search, I didn't see anything come up. A combat log may be a feature we see in the future.


There is no way of determining a monster's level as of now. If you want to know the XP from killing a monster, you'll have to kill one, and then see the difference in experience points. This value will change when you level up, however.

  • Even that is dubious, since level difference between the hero and the monster affects the XP reward, and since there's no way of knowing the level...

  • @Oak True. I'll include that in my answer. May 16 '12 at 13:56

Monster level can be determined by searching offline databases for the monsters name you are interested in. When using d3db.com, I highly recommend the Firefox "Firebug" plug in for searching of the link text, since the names tend to be non-sensical (but the link text makes sense).

Do note that monster level depends on difficulty level, so you'll see 4 levels listed for each monster (corresponding to the 4 difficulty levels).

  • I think that's a good answer.
