Insane. Levels 1-20 on any of the newer starting cities can be done in about 4-6 hours. EQ2 isn't horrible, but I've never felt paced in that game.

Faster? I always felt that EQ2's leveling time was just right.

Compared to WoW before it's 1-60 level speed increase EQ2 actually felt faster already.

I hope they find the right balance. Back at EQ2 launch I was completely new to MMOs so my leveling speed was very slow and it took me about 3 months (real-time, not /played) to get to 50 as a very group active tank (Guardian).

I think the time to reach the cap as a new player should at least roughly stay the same over the lifetime of an MMO, no matter how often the cap is increased.

"If it's not fun for 164 hours, it's probably not for 100 either, right?"

Weird, I don't remember anybody saying this when WoW made their leveling faster. Multiple times.

That's nice. Any chance of them acquiring an art direction that doesn't suck?
