that's what I was hoping it would be like. So you might as well pick up as many general quests as you can and even when your lvl 8 lancer to high for that level1 quest then you can just switch classes.
I am curious though if you picked up a general quest lvl 1 and your lancer becomes level 5 before you handed in that quest and you rather use a different class conjurer to turn in that quest. would it still give XP to lancer or conjurer? Example if the quest was to kill 5 bees and you did this on lancer but you forget to turn that in the quest at the npc for XP and now your lvl 5 and it would be a waste? Are you able to switch to conjurer and talk to the npc to finish the quest even though your lancer actually did the killing?
All quests have a minimum turn in level, so yes you could do the quest as a high level job and turn it in for the exp as a low level job, however the quest has to be low enough level for your low level job to turn it in. I think
you have to be within 5 levels so for example you could complete a level 35 quest on your level 50 job and turn the quest in as any level 30+ job you have, the job you turn the quest in as gets the quests exp, any job 29 and below would be unable to turn in the quest.
