Experience points on Aurora are based on retail back in 2009ish. There are three main exceptions: Party Share, Chain Bonus and a custom Relevel Bonus. To encourage people to play together the Party Share has a slight boost compared to retail. Risk vs Reward is very important on a Hardcore Server, this is the reason for an increased Chain Bonus. The exp per mob cap has also been drastically increased making high EXP yields possible from IT++ mobs. Although EXP is based off of 2009 values, the rate at which a player can obtain EXP and level with these changes can be quite substantial.

Death on this server resets your current job to level 1 and since it takes a LONG time to level up at higher levels, the server has a custom Relevel Bonus. The server keeps track of the highest level death for each job. This value is used to calculate a job specific EXP boost as long as your current job level is below the highest level death on your current job. The amount of the bonus EXP given is +10% for every level. There is a jump from +740% at 74 to +900% at 75, this substantial increase for getting to 75 to encourage end game content. A future update might include a higher possible job specific Relevel Bonus based on Merit Points.

You can find charts below for specific values on everything relating to EXP for Aurora.

EXP Per Level and Relevel Bonus: Relevel Total is how much EXP is needed to relevel before the bonus is applied. For example: Dying at 75 and then releveling to 75 should take less EXP before the bonus is applied than to get to lvl 30 on a job without any Relevel Bonus.
