In MMORPGs (massively multiplayer online role-playing games) character leveling refers to the practice of acquiring advanced game assets / character skills & abilities by purchasing them or hiring an expert game service to achieve those results on your behalf.
Many gamers consider this type of leveling a form of cheating, or at least contrary to the spirit of achievement common in online game environments.
In offline games such as Final Fantasy however, character leveling can be a crucial element to a player's success in the game. Many times a high level form of magic is needed to clear a certain "boss area" and that level of magic is only attainable through many hours of repetitive battle sequences between lesser equipped enemies. This is very common in random battle event role playing games.
