I have recognized this problem, the method that exp is distributed when a
moblie is killed could be changed to reflect the level of the players, that
way a higher level player will get a majority of the exp.

I currently don't have a home mud, but one idea that I was working on was 
to have some smarter mobiles.  Maybe give them a spec proc that durring a
fight they randomly switch the player they are attacking.  This could be also
added as a skill, where  the player could refocus the mobile they are
attacking that way if a new mobile shows up they could  kill it first.

Another possibility I was considering was giving the mobiles the ability
to recite recall on the leader, or Tank, that way it would be left with some
easier to kill clerics and mages.

These are only in the idea stage, so I don't have the code for either.  I 
appologize if these have already been suggested.
