hawk eye or slaughterhouse give the most exp for the least work (both intel.)
Agreed. Also, it is fun to unlock the WoTG areas on a level 1 character. Hints: do Windurst first, there's a lot less aggro, and you will need to do Slaughterhouse a couple of times for AN to get warps.

Subbing /pup with the appropriate attachments use to be a great method. I don't know if the stoneskin's lower cap is less than what it use to be though since the change. The automaton will tear through things in the lower levels, especially useful on jobs that don't DD well like mages.
Main job PUP with the right attachments can be really overpowered at lower levels, like 20 and below. As a subjob the auto is really gimp at your subjob level, but it can still be useful. (I like using /PUP for getting L2 skill chains for weaponskill quests.) The problem is that you can't be a PUP until you've already hit level 30 to get the unlock quest, so you can't use this for your first job.
Anyhow, before the XP doubling (minimum used to be 30 since late 2009, and EM was 100), with an Empress Band and FoV, I was usually able to hit level 7 in under an hour in W. Saruta. Double XP and auto-repeat should make this much faster. Once you hit 10, it's just a simple matter of spamming Gusgen GoV. (or level 13 if you have to be the sync) That should take a few hours per job.
Then if you're really OCD, go for level 57-60 on every job in Crawler's Nest. That can take maybe 2 months of evenings and weekends for all 20 jobs, faster if you try hard. That's assuming you don't go crazy first from all the retardation. Preservation of sanity is the real limitation to how fast you can level multiple jobs in there.
If you have a 2box to PL with, skip the Nest and go straight for Bost<tab> page 4 leeches after level 30. I hear there's a place upstairs with no aggro, but is in xp distance of the whole leeches area. Then have a level 99 go nuts on the leeches.
