[Character Level] & [Experience Points]
Essentially, the whole point of combat is to increase your [Character Level], by obtaining [Experience Points], so you can become the strongest warrior there is! Along with it, comes the ability to find great loot from hunting monsters!

[Character Level] & [Character Class] Restrictions
Each [Character Class] can go through an evolution to increase its [Character Class] [Tier]. Each [Character Class] [Tier] has restrictions on how high their [Character Level] can become. In order to continue to increase [Character Level], the [Character Class] [Tier] must be upgraded at some point.
