Leveling Up

Hello adventurers of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my guide and thank you so much for checking out the last official episode of our character creation series. Although technically this is more like a bonus episode, this isn’t really about character creation, it’s more about character maintenance and i’ll talk about that a little bit later on. We’re just looking at leveling up. So let’s check out the process here.

Process of Leveling

So you level up in pathfinder 2e really everytime you hit a thousand experience points. It’s really simple, really easy to understand and really easy to keep track of. This is possible because the game’s difficulty actually scales up as you level. So because of that the experience points you gain all remain relative. It’s really nice, it’s really sweet paizo did a great job with the system and i’m super proud of them for it.

But in terms of the actual process of leveling you increased your level by one and then you subtract 1000 experience points. If you have over a thousand experience points it just carries over to the next level so if you have let’s say 1100 experience points by the end of the session and then you level up. You will start the next session with a hundred experience points already. Really nice!

And now what you do is you increase your maximum hit points…in order to find out by what number it’s based off of your class so it’s just right at the beginning of your class when you select it right next to the key ability, it’s pretty easy to find so i don’t expect too many problems then you add any relevant class features you do that by just looking at your class chart there, then you select the various feats based on whatever level you’re at.

Add spells and spell slots if you have access to any and then you increase all of your proficiency bonuses by one and then adjust those bonuses accordingly. It’s really nice, it’s a really easy process pathfinder 2e did a great job in making it so every level has significance and i love that. It is overall just an incredible way of going about it, really easy to keep track of.


That being said! your game master might have alternative means of you leveling up or extra requirements based on things that are currently happening in the game. But overall i think this is a fair template to follow. That being said, congratulations guys, i hope you all have great time and thank you so much for checking this series i really do appreciate it.
