View Full Version : No XP for ranged elven/dwarven units?
11-04-2012, 01:06 PM
I made several fights now with some troops, but my elven archers and dwarven gunmen do not gain any Xp, even if they kill several foes.
Is this a bug? Had it on differend battles in different quests. The melee units do gain XP normally.

I had again several battles but it seems a) my ranged units still are all level one with 0 (!!) XP, and b) most units do not save their XP between battles.
Any sign from the devs that this will be taken serious please?

We will investigate to see what is going on with these units.
If you have a log1.txt file from when this happens, that will help us see what is going on.
Is anyone else experiencing the same problem?

Log1.txt does not work to upload, will give you 2 and 3, having this several times now.
I got one of them to level 2 now within a battle (but the unit died lol) but the survivors still do not get any XP. Elven and dwarven units so far, but I do not have the other races so I donīt know if it is there. Seems more units then only ranged have this problem.

Just a small update: I used some gold to train some of my archers and this was saved. So its just the field experience, the steps between the level ups. that will not be saved after a combat for these units.
My dwarven ones did not gain any XP even after bringing havoc to much enemies.

Well i got a near similar problem: Lvling archers/ranged takes WAY longer than lvling everything else:
Melee-Units seem to get XP for every HIT they TAKE and every KILL they MAKE, which gives you insanly fast lvling speed if you just run into a settlement in the camp-map and kill everything with 2 melee units + 1 "mass heal"ability-unit (hero) - took me 3 "runs" like that to get 2 Grandmasters at lvl 10
now, same strategy with Ranged Units: After killing a complete settlement with ranged units and my hero, they are lvl 1 with a little bit of xp. After completing multiple runs (which, in fact, takes much longer than with melees but.. who cares) they STILL are lvl1, with only a little bit more xp. Killing units with ranged weapons does not seem to give them ANY xp at all, getting hit by ranged units does not give xp too, and a group of archers does not get hit by melee units often, cuz they just kill everything that runs up to them (but, they DO get dmg pretty hard, even when fighting against only-melee.. always wondering where this dmg is coming from)
Archers (especially the elven ones) Are pretty n1 units but lvling them seems to be pretty bugged
