shining force ii: main guide: experience guide
In general, experience is gained based on your strength relative to the monster you are fighting. If you're much weaker than the monster, you'll gain maximum experience (~49 points), if you're about the same level, you'll gain betweem 20-30 points, and when you're much stronger, you'll gain only 1 or 2 points.

Dave Pro recently took the time to research the points at which your characters will gain only 1 experience for defeating the various monsters. The levels below indicate the level at which this happens (a + indicates the level is after promotion). The following are true regardless of any levels gained before promotion. So in theory if you level up to 40 before promotion, you should continue to gain reasonable amounts of experience on monsters that would only give you 1exp after promo.
