Exp Egg Doubles experienced earned by the character. Does not stack. It can be obtained by completing a sidequest in Darril's Tomb, by betting an Elixir in the Coliseum and continuing to bet the next item until you get an Exp Egg (the last item bet in the sequence is a Tintinabar,) or by using the Ragnarok Esper on the Harpy monsters found on the Thamasa island in the World of Ruin (usually Ragnarok will display "Better off Tonic!" but occasionally it will show "Better off Exp. Egg!"). The last works best if the Harpy is low on health.
