Leeching lowbies?

So on occasion, while letting this game play itself for my weekly dragon order nonsense, I see someone botting away with a lowbie parked nearby. What benefit is the lowbie gaining from this? More importantly, how can I tap into this for my own lowbies?

Thanks! :D

    They're most likely doing apprentice bounty orders, the games post nightfall method of getting you to level 60 in a week. I think in the next major update everyone will just start at 80:rolleyes:

    It takes 3 orders (900 kills with high level team) to hit 40 in 1-2 hours from a brand new toon and 5-7 days to hit 60, depending on whether you bother with other stuff. 7 just on orders.

    Man, this game...I don't know sometimes. So yeah, I'm going to guess I pick these up in nightfall citadel?

    Edit: Yup, found them. "Dangerous Bounty" my ****. Nothing dangerous about sitting AFK while my 78's bot runs. :)

    Aside from bounties you also get a mentor point every few mob kills while you are partied with the lowbie(s). So if you leave your bot on all day/night/week you can accumulate some nice free mentor points. :)

    If you are their master, you get 20 friendship and 50 mentor points when they complete their dangerous bounties, making it easier to max friendship for max reward from graduation.

    IF it takes you 5-7 days to hit 60 you fail >.>... Friend hit 60 in i believe 2 days of pure botting. So if it is taking you almost a week you either fail or are very lazy.

    I'm personally only half fond of the whole lowbies being able to get into the parties. I'm fine if it's a guildie who wants to do them, but I hate leaving my gobos party open -- since it's easy for my priest and Darriuss' MM to take over the whole area, pretty much -- and finding it's half filled with newbs who're looking to powerlevel. I honestly think there should be a way to change the level limit that you'll let in your party, 'cause... well, I don't want to have to lock out over lv 80s just because I want to avoid random noobs leeching in my party. Half the time I don't even get mentor exp, and it's pretty irritating when they're sitting there and I'm gone all day botting and they're leaving little to no room for anybody who actually *needs* to kill gobos.

    You're all being lazy. Back before this newfangled bounty botting came out, we had to afk-level up the long, hard way by idling in the training grounds every day for months on end.

    Kids these days are so spoiled!

    I think the bounties are an attempt to make the game appealing quicker to new players. Long slow grind just drives people away, so they let you get to a decent level fast. It's the same with the teleport level unlock on areas that used to be off limits. Although bizarrely the advanced training ground is still locked at 40, when with bounties it's logically the first place that should have been unlocked.

    As for the bot, it was an absolute necessity when soul power was introduced. Expecting players to stand there and drop dead from sleep deprivation grinding like zombies was asking way too much. In all seriousness for hard core mmo players with leveling OCD the bot is a real life health benefit.
