Players can level up by obtaining 325 EXP. EXP can be obtained by bringing the correct book to class, helping in the Archery minigame, getting good grades in class, turning in homework, wishing at the fountain, sleeping in the apartments, and participating in the Royale Universe Pageant at Sunset Island.
Perks of Leveling up
When players level up, they get 300 diamonds. The multipliers can multiply the number of diamonds you gain by leveling up. The 4x multiplier gives 1,200 per level up, and 2x gives 600 per level up, the two together give 1,800 per level up.
If a player reaches the top 100 levels (out of all the Royale High players) their username and level will be displayed on a leaderboard in the Arrival Screen. Previously the players with the top 100 levels were able to sit on thrones reserved exclusively for the top 100 levels in Earth or Divinia
Some realms are only accessable to players over a certain level. For example during Sunset Island's beta testing it was only accessable for players level 45 and up, and to access the Intergalactic Trading Hub the player needs to be level 75 and up.
The Gem & Crown Wheel
The gem and crown wheel could be spun by players on leveling up, or they could be bought with diamonds. Every five levels the player would recieve a gem roll, and every ten levels the player would recieve a crown roll. Players could decorate different colors of crowns with many different colored gems, which the player could wear as accessories. The crown wheel provides crowns of various colors. They can be accessed by clicking on the player's level shown on the right side of the screen.
The design must be saved by pressing the "Save Crown Design!" button on the bottom of the menu after the player makes changes to the crown, or it will not get updated.
There used to be a button next to the "Remove Hats" button called "Hide Crown", but it was removed. Now, players can take the crown off by clicking on it in their Inventory in the "Wearing" section.
This feature is no longer active and the player can no longer spin for gems or crowns.
