Just add him to your current game. He'll miss a bit of content, but if you can keep him alive he'll level fast.

I can vouch for this :D

Roll alts to level up with him - or let him solo. The xp penalty for grouping with a large level difference makes it really useless to try to help grind someone. I noticed a distinct slowdown in xp gain with just a 4-level variance in beta.

Keep all your +xp gear, give it to your friend and then start a new character with him until he gets close to the level of your main.

Step 1. collect low level gear.
Step 2. give him low level gear.
Step 3. make a new character.
Step 4. put gear on character.

Starting over is the only option.

He'll never catch up to you unless you guys are offline or you help him run through the game and get next to no experience for X hours.

I thought Blizz made it so that you get crap exp if you're in a party where you're vastly underleveled compared to the other players. Honestly, it doesn't seem like there is much you can do.

EDIT: I guess you guys can collect really good low level gear so that he'll be tweaked, but honestly you'd have to spend quite some time to get gear good enough to have any meaningful impact on the amount of time it would take him to level up.

Join his game and help him through his game until he catches up to you and continue progressing as normally. It won't hurt yours or hits gameplay to do this.

Five hours will not be a big deal.

Yes there are reports of the Koreans beating normal that fast, but seriously, they are Koreans. If they aren't the first to do something in a game I think it is culturally acceptable for them to be physically beaten.

Personally, I would go around, clear trash, open up way points etc before your friend comes on. Once he is, just power rush him through. Between the bonus from the superior trash and the boost from it being a multi-player game, he should catch up easily enough. Might miss out on some lore, but not a big deal there.

Be that as it may though it won't take long for him to catch up.

Create your second char? Besides that will let you score another good name before they all get taken. =)
