When and why? I see that I can safely take out worms/leeches at mid to upper 40s... maybe sooner? What I am wondering is do you get some kind of a bonus there? I have seen a lot of people talking about leveling there but haven't seen why.
I have also seen something about Letting someone leech off you for exp... even at very low levels.I think they where talking about Adoulin for htis. When and where is that possible?

I was recently playing around leveling a mule and was working out how effective escha is for leveling. As some people have mentioned, there are vorseals that add various bonuses to you and your NPCs while in escha. Most of these are earned by progressing through the RoV storyline, as well as other missions and content inside escha zones. What I didn't see mentioned above is also that there is a currency (silt) specific to these zones. Like curor or campaign or conquest points, you build silt up primarily by earning exp in escha areas.
From my experience, Escha Zi'Tah offers a few nice things for lower level exp:
--One stop shopping from 40s on up; if a camp is running dry, head a bit deeper in for harder mobs
--Vorseals for buffs (contingent on content you've done)
--A head start on building silt
--Minimal travel to get there
The domain invasion content, while far too difficult for non-99 jobs, would still be an option for gaining some nice vorseals, assuming that you knew other players were effectively fighting and on-track to win. In that case, you could hop in and get the win/vorseal.
This comes at the price of no FoV/GoV bonuses, so take that for what its worth.
