    Default Leveling Iconics

    Question on xp with Iconics who don't jump to 15.

    I wanted to train to lvl 8 and then do some quests. Say I earn 30,000 xp at lvl 8 then go train directly to lvl 15. Will I be at starting lvl 15 or will I be at lvl 15 + 30,000 xp?

    You would not get the 30K, I did a quick test while leveling a mule and he did not get xp until he was holding 15. So, I was able to stop at 14 and run quests.

    I would assume that Veteran Status (V 1 at level 4, V 2 at level 7) and Iconic characters are special cases that violate the "Level Banking" rule where you can "Save" up to 1 full level and 1 point less than a second level before advancing, and still collect XP... Thus, while your Iconic Alt has unused levels worth of XP stored you will not accrue new XP.

    It can suck, but it sure makes it easy to go get all that favor needed for extra band/pack slots and bonus TP every hundred favor...

    I've got an Iconic Artificer (1 Pally/14 Arti) going through the lower levels for favor but also to farm for Runearms... I'm not taking on any level appropriate quests until I have a good collection of RAs and Xbows.

    One other thing to note, you don't get your starter gear until you take level 15.
