    Default A level 2 character in Freemarch? How can this be?

    isn't there a level requirement to get through the tutorial and into the real world or have these spammers found a back-door? I GM_reported this character as well

    Now this is interesting. I assumed you would have to do the quests, but I guess not.

    I'm unsure exactly how this benefits spammers, though.

    Defiant Starting Zone is easy to bypass if there is a group of folks already up to the Golam run. Tag along behind them, stay out of the rift then jump into the Portal when they finish the rift. It helps that there is actually very little mobs between you and the golam run at the end of it...

    Guardian Starting Zone is near impossible to bypass, not only is there Hostile Mobs between you and the exit for over 70% of the path, but you need to reach a certain point in the quest line to actually get the ability to break open the portal...

    guild rally banner might work. although I've never actually tried it.
    This is RIFT, not planet of Warcraft.

    I tested this on the PTS.. You can't get through the blue portal at the end without doing all of the quests. I have no idea how he got there.

    I once saw a Level 1 sitting by the mailbox in Freemarch as well. I reported it and moved on. I really have no idea how that is possible.

    Was bugged and fixed a few patches ago. Anyone you see now has been there from before the fix went into place.

    I was wondering how much you can level before leaving the newb zone.

    I reached level 10 before I started to get bored. Was still gaining Exp (at around 10 or so a kill by then I think)..

    Saves them taking the time needed to play through the intro zone before they can start spamming, if there's a way to simply run through the zone and out the far end.

    Well, I wish they would let you bypass the tutorial zone, After playing through it with 5 characters in the betas (trying different classes) and two more after launch, I hate that zone, and it keeps me from roling a mage for an alt like I want to

    Highest level mobs in the starting areas are level 6, which means you could theoretically get to level 14 unless they change the mechanics for maximum level gap just for the starter zones. At level 14, all the mobs would be grey.

    You can spam from the starting zone, so that makes no difference at all. Only channels they do not have access to that sometimes get spam is Trade channels, they can still spam 1-9 chat and whispers e.t.c
