Slowest MMO XP on the market.... pls increase xp for leveling

Guys, I'm a veteran of several MMO's in the last 10 years and I have to tell you... leveling in Star Wars is brutal.

Seriously guys, I love the game and think its one of the best MMO's in the last 10 years and once the new Star Wars movies hit, you guys are going to get a nice boost to membership numbers but...

pls for the love of all that is good in MMO's.... increase the xp, its the primary reason I don't play as much as I would like to, it just seems like forever to level. I'm in a guild on my characters, paying subscriber and use the xp buffs when I can but man just seems really sloooooowwww.......

Don't want to unsub cause I really do love to log in and play from time to time but thinking of either renewing my sub with WOW or going to Wildstar once I see the reviews.

I think this game has faster leveling than pretty much any MMO that isn't Post-Cataclysm WoW.

It's about 3-4x as quick as Vanilla WoW. And about 2-3x as much as BC and WotLK WoW.

WoW has just been casualized and made easier to level in, because Blizzard wants more people to experience high level content.

Back when BC was first out, it could take a solid 250+ hours of play to hit level 70. I can hit level 55 in about 60-70 hours doing quests, or about 45-50 doing Kuat Driveyards with XP boosts and legacy XP.

I'm not sure about Wildstar, but isn't that a Korean MMO, which are notorious for huge grinds?

You have got to be kidding. This is the easiest MMO ever to level in, not to mention, the easiest to actually play also.

Oh for the days when death meant death and you had to run back to your gravestone to save a portion of your lost exp. Certainly would get rid of the "entitled crowd" littering the current crop of MMOs.

Obvious troll is obvious.

You get Bonus XP for almost everything such as:
  • Being in a guild
  • Boost items
  • Double XP weekends (which also stack with boost items)
  • Doing things in groups

Thankfully, even if this is a real complaint, it's one of the first I've seen complaining that leveling is too slow. There have been many posts asking for slower leveling and a way to turn off XP gain altogether.

Just wait for the instant-55-IWIN Cartel Item coming up soon but, dang, you're probably too impatient for that also. Oh well, go play something else then if this isn't your scene.

PS - Since you also rarely play at all I'd rather you not even get to 55 cuz you'll have no idea what to even do if you haven't been, you know, playing and learning as you go. Worst thing in the world for any game would be to have someone go from level 1-MAX in 3 days with no idea how to actually play.
Here's my referral link if you want to help me out and also get your 7 days and free transfer:

*cough* Korean MMOs *cough*

More seriously, what makes levelling look long, is dialogues. Otherwise, it doesn't seem especially slow. When doing dailies (50+) which have no cutscenes, the levelling pace is incredibly faster, you feel almost like cheating.

This game is very easy to level up to max. Doing it repetitively can get old real quick however.

Well, you are mostly only going to get people telling you how super fast leveling here is. Then someone will say "entitled".

People mostly post only to disagree.

Apparently KDY is the fast leveling way right now. I just leveled through PVP and space missions, and tried KDY. It did feel pretty fast, if full of a lot of what might be called trash monsters. So you could try that for a bit.
