Whenever you level up, you receive a boost to your pickaxe power/strength. You may also gain the ability to mine a new ore.
You gain experience (XP) by mining ores. If you're new to the game, you should ask to partner up with someone who allows you to tag along. By actively holding the lantern, you'll provide extra light and receive a (significant) fraction of experience from whoever is in the vicinity. Note: They still receive full experience, you receive additional experience.
While you're off mining, your Data & Analysis building will slowly generate experience. Research & Development will also contribute to your XP generation. Note: XP/Gold generation is only active while you're playing the game.

- Painite is the most effective ore for grinding XP, giving 40k, 52k with moonstone pick.
- There used to be a rank called Supreme Ruler in previous versions like alpha testing. The rank was eventually removed. It was between Wizard and Overlord - the reason it got removed was probably because the mining boost was overpowered and raised the standard too high for the last few levels.
- Since the January Update, you have to be a high enough rank to mine some ores.
- The experience bar is the color of the next rank you'll be. If you're rank Master, your experience bar is orange or if you were rank Wizard, your experience bar would be red. If you're rank Deity, then you have no experience bar.
