Sweet mercy, that felt like cheating. I thought a GM was gonna show up at some point and ban us for circumventing the game or something! 27-39 in about 3 hours or so. I just showed up at Gusgen and a lvl 17 asked to party. I thought, whoa, that's gonna kill exp. Then level sync. Then I thought, "I have no level 17 gear with me!" Does matter either. Yikes. On one hand, it's amazing to blaze through but on the other hand, I still have no idea how to play SCH! :D Guess it doesn't matter too much since it's just a sub, and it's nice to know I'll be able to level everything to 50 pretty quickly. We even had some lvl 12s show and party.
Thanks again for all the input folks. Getting a pt was easier that I imagined. Oh, funny story. A guy showed up who, like me, just came back from a multi-year hiatus and he said he sat in the Dunes for 3 hours LFP. Had no idea that people didn't do the Dunes > Qufim > Jungles route any more. I said that everyone should have to do that at least once in their character's life! :)
