For the first time ever, I just tried to play the game by taking the route Nejeb -> Xshathra -> Al-Farum BEFORE Salatuwar.

To my disappointment, you actually get LESS experience, even though it's much harder to beat the levels like that! :(

Experience is based on monster levels and monster levels (at least some, especially golems and other big ones, which give quite a lot of experience) are based on your level when you enter the map, so it can be that you get lower level of high-experience monsters which result in less overall gain. That's why you'd got less experience.

About difficulty - pretty similar - you got tougher monsters earlier in the game, with 'smaller' weapons which made it more difficult.

Thanks for the heads up, I just killed the vamp and couldn't decide where to go next :)
