LTSynergy was a strategy used by many softcore speed ascenders prior to NS13 that allowed for very high stat gains at all levels.

LTSynergy was very expensive; in fact, if you were an Apathetic Lizardman or even a Normal player, it wouldn't be worth trying, as you needed to have several permanent skills from different classes in order to make it work decently. For ease of explanation, the table below uses the conventions and strictures of the old Dressing For Success page and its various "Maximizing Your..." subpages, even though the LTSynergy was not a game mechanic.
