So I see the exp. for NPC during movement is implemented. However, I am wondering a few things:
1. Why do they only get only 1/8th the exp I get?
2. Why won't they follow me across terrain? (they are slower, is that why)
3. Are their levels at the same exp amount ours are at?
I just checked my NPC's xp (I've been out strolling for the last few days and had them along). I also seem to have the problem that Zao has, with the NPC's earning XP at around 1/8th my rate (they should have near 800 but have 82 instead).
Haven't had any trouble with them keeping up with me though. Something for the bug base perhaps?
I dont think NPCs are gonna gain any XP if you have them "along" with you for a stroll.They have to be doing it themselves ala auto gather...this is the only way I know of that an NPC can travel alone.

No, they do indeed gain XP when traveling in a party with you, and this is intentional. However, that feature does seem to be less than fully functional at the moment since something is limiting the XP they gain, and if that is intended, it doesn't seem to be documented as such. I've also made a note in the original NPC XP testing thread on dev, so I'll come back here with updates if there are any.
