Was doing some defend DS9 sector runs yesterday and I saw a level 4 in there getting ass *****. This instance is tuned for around the Captain 1 area.
Wonder if he was getting uber exp or something, probably not. He sure was dying a lot though, which was some what entertaining, to an extent.
My concern is this: A level 4 in a +30 instance will be doing little to nothing to help. Because its a 5 man instance, that is 1 less player within the level range unable to join that will actually make a difference and help to finish the patrols faster.
Assuming they are good enough of a player to sponge some XP off +30 ships without getting aggro, seems like it would be faster to just farm your own level defend sector missions. You're not going to do enough damage to anything to get any loot, and lose out on the quest reward xp. Eh whatever floats your boat I guess.
