Hero experience (XP) is used to raise the player's Hero Level. Hero experience is gained when killing enemy Minions, Structures and Heroes. As a Hero levels up, their base stats are increased and they are given the choice to level an Ability. This allows the Hero to unlock new abilities, or even level their existing abilities.

Leveling an ability increases its effectiveness; making the move stronger, usable more often, but at the cost of more resources. At level five, a Hero can unlock their Ultimate ability. Ultimate abilities are a hero’s most powerful skill, and can be used to change the course of a team fight, or even an entire game.

Hero experience (XP) allows a player to level their Abilities and become stronger. Upon reaching level 15, Abilities will then be completely upgraded, Your Hero can further level to 20 allowing more Health and Mana. Upon reaching maximum level; (XP) is no longer gained.
