Over time units gain experience points. When a unit has enough points for the next level, a perk can be selected. Every new level starts with zero experience. Lords require less XP to gain a level than normal units.
All units automatically gain 1 XP a turn, and attacking, defending, assisting another unit in combat, or being next to a unit that levels up grants additional experience.
The amount of automatic XP can also be boosted by several perks:
- Great mage perk: Instructor
- Unit perk: Perceptive
- Building perk: Masters of War
