So, in my playtime on this server, I've encountered many players who didn't understand how to wisely use their Exp levels.
Unlocking slimefun or custom enchants would require specific amounts of Exp levels, and for those who had more than enough, not many of these players would use the /xpbottle command to take out the excess experience they didn't need and ended up wasting a ton of experience.

For example, If you needed to spend 100 Exp levels, but you had 177 Exp levels, and you spent the 100 from there, the amount of Exp you used is more than 100 Exp levels' worth.

Here's a chart I pulled from the Minecraft official wiki. Note, however, the wiki only lists the levels up to 40 and the experience needed for them, so I had to take the time in-game to check each level upwards.

One trick to enchanting: We know from the chart that level 30 is 1395 XP, A tier 3 enchant requires a minimum of 30 levels, but only takes away 3 levels. From level 27 to level 30, you only require 306 XP. So have bottles of 306 XP ready, if you're planning on doing multiple levels 30 enchants.

If you have surplus XP, check your total XP with /xp and then subtract the required XP from the total on a separate calculator, and then bottle the result.

So if you have 133550 XP but you want to unlock the highest Slimefun unlock which is 60 levels or 8670 XP, then you can /xpb 124880 XP which would leave you with exactly 60 levels worth of Exp. That way there is no waste.
