Age of Conan has announced an offline leveling system with the release of the 1.07.02 patch. This system will allow players to level their characters if they are above level 30 and below level 80. Each active account will have four levels to distribute with one new level in the pool every 4 days. These must be assigned to characters in the character selection screen. Your account must have an active running subscription. Once you have assigned a level to a character it cannot be reverted.
This is a terrible idea. Why? Because so many games and companies including Funcom have fought tooth and nails, knife on the bloodline; against botting, hacking, auto-leveling, and gold farmers. To announce their own system to do this is a dramatic shift and only encourages the other behavior.
