    one place where you could level up to 99 you say?... open to botting you say?... Insanely underskilled?... Why, you're right. That could never work.

    **cough cough** Abyssea...

    I didn't even consider that, I think you bring up a good point.

    You have to reach lv30 before you can enter abyssea, so it's not quite the same- You can't even get 1-30 in one zone. I honestly wouldn't object to raising that limit though.

    Can't use trusts or NPC fellow under sync can you? Going to old zones solo would likely be slower trying to accomplish your goals than it would be to use trusts in areas you can use now. While I like the idea overall, I think the downsides would wear off rather quickly for people. Job abilites/spells you've come to rely on may not be accessible anymore, and as we all know synced gear really isn't that good if you want to do something other than leech.

    Um, all those problems listed already exist and have existed since the advent of Abyssea...

    Also, people already sync down to level with lower level newbies and newer characters, so you can't really make the argument of gear being less useful. It's already part of how level-sync works, this would just allow you to sync down on your own without the need of some one at that level. Maybe you would like to go farm sparks and exp in Altepa Desert, well, you could sync yourself down to where you felt comfortable, maybe 45? And have at it.

    Actually you can use trusts while level synced.

    Not to mention you can go 1 to 99 in any adoulin zone. Since we are speaking of leeching, its 100% possible for a 1 to group with a 99 and them to pl them to max level in 1 zone without moving.

    Uh, unless they applied Abyssea style EXP growth to audolin areas, how is the low level person getting any meaningful EXP? The level difference should be reducing the EXP to negligibility.

    At level 1 they get about 100 exp a kill on a kill that would give a level 99 (i118) 2k exp. By 30 they are getting 2-300 per kill, and by 50 they are getting 600+, and by 75 they are getting about 1.5k a kill.

    I didnt say it was amazing, just doable. I have leveled all of my mules jobs from 15 to 99 this way.

    Records of Eminence helps counter that, as well as the amount of EXP scaling doesn't kill EXP enough to make it bad for those levels.
