You should see XIV... This apparently is working as intended, too.

Now, in FFXIV, you can party with any one, any level and you get full xp, as if that person was the same level as you. Now, a level 50 player (or two, or three) can take a party full of level 1s, 10s, 20s, etc and just slaughter low level monsters for them.

I am doing this right now. I am standing on a bridge in a party with a few low level LS members while two top leveled LS members are just slaughtering monsters. In XIV, monsters respawn almost immediately, so we can go afk (they even told us we should). Looking at the screen you just see constant chains - 282, 311, 422, 471, 519, etc.

This is incredibly cheap, but I can't bring myself to grind for hours and hours when this system is in place. XIV's new lead developer said he is fine with this type of power leveling. Apparently, this is working as intended...

Looks like they did change this, which is a good thing.
