EXP, also known as Hero EXP (not to be confused with Team EXP ), is your hero's progress and experience to the next Level. Once it reaches maximum they will gain one level. A hero cannot level past your team's level which is the number near your profile picture or avatar. All battle sequences provide hero EXP besides Gauntlet, Arena, and Guild Trials party stages. Sweepers do not provide hero EXP however they do award EXP consumables such as Wisdom Salves, Wisdom Potions, and, in much later stages, Wisdom Cake. These will instantly grant your hero EXP.
