The Experience Cap of every game is different. Levels beyond 8,000,000 XP in the main campaign can't be reached without mods. In The Black Pits II: Gladiators of Thay a total of 8,950,000 XP would theoretically be possible, as the rule defining files exist for such levels, but it's also an experience cap applied at 8,000,000.

In the Enhanced Editions, if the protagonist's experience exceeds certain thresholds at the time companions first join the party, the exact threshold number of XP will be set to the under-leveled companion for the player to manually level them up instead of the auto-leveling in the classic games. The XP will only be given to the active classes, so dual-class characters can actually benefit more. The maximum threshold numbers vary among campaigns.
