Default Pathfinder: Gobs of Goblins in a combat

Munchkin Pathfinder is largely defined by the Goblins. They're everywhere in the deck. And they apparently can accumulate in a combat -- you could be fighting a Level 1 goblin and soon find yourself facing three or four Goblin cards of varying strengths if you're especially unlucky.

If you beat all of them (with or without help), how many levels do you get?

And is it just me or are there a lot more lower-level monsters in the Pathfinder set? Does that mean it's easier to get levels in that set than in other sets?

You always get a Level for each Monster killed. (Unless you get two because it's a higher Level Monster.)

To further explain this: The rules say that when you kill a Monster, you get a level and Treasure reward. Given the way that rule is worded, it's not necessary to spell out that if you kill multiple Monsters, you would get the level and Treasure rewards for each Monster you kill, so the rules don't do that.

So if someone piles three or four monsters into your combat and you still beat them, you get three or four levels? Makes piling onto an opponent's combat risky.

As in life, you can't expect rewards without some level of risk.
