Leveling up will make your character more powerful. Unsurprisingly, you Level up in DD2 by gathering XP points. You get some experience points for fighting monsters but the majority of your XP will come from completing quests. As you level up, your stats will automatically increase, based on your chosen Vocation. What’s great is that if you change your Vocation at some point, your stats will be adjusted accordingly.
