you can level, albeit a lot more slowly, in Pando to level 60. You have 2 options really. when dying without pid in my experience, the drop will 1st cycle through any available "droppable" items in bag 1, then bag 2, then bag 3, 4, 5....if there is nothing that can drop then chances are, your equipped gear/weapon are next to drop. go to Apu or Iris and buy a bunch of Npc junk gears/weapons cheap as a secondary insurance policy. NOTICE the key-word here "secondary". Your 1st priority should be to obtain a pid (30 day being the best) and just in case it runs out without you realizing it, at least you have a few stacks of crap droppable gears/weapons that aren't much value to you that wouldnt harm you so much, so make sure these items are placed in bags 1-4, while your alt. gears/weapons that you dont want dropped in any case be placed in bottom rows of bag 5. Hope that helps.
