I currently have a 140 i/l mage and a couple of other chars that are between like level 40-70. Is making an hs mule worth it (the time it takes to get to lvl 81) versus the time it will save me with extra exp training my other characters? For example, I imagine the HS mule would definitely help my mage in terms of i can party with him and fight monsters where the HS mule doesnt get leech exp and my mage would theoritically get more exp then without hs mule correct? also, would having a hs mule help me level my low level characters at all. like if a was a level 50 character training with an hs mule in the party would i get more exp or would i get less than training alone because the hs mule would leech some exp? but would the extra exp make up for it or no? and lastly, once i have my mage to 1 DC and i have a hs mule and say another character that is able to leech of DC would taking a party of 3 (my mage, 81 mule, and other 100+ character) would that make my 100 character level faster than if he were just training alone with the I/L mage in a party of 2? thanks for the replies guys, just trying to best use my time thanks.
