hmmm D3= i botted that and it still took 4 days straight (my bot was on day and night running in background) for me to hit max lvl.
WoW= lvl1-20 was fast then it seemed like an eternity to reach 90...
Rift= that was SLOOOOOOW to hit max lvl. even with a bot and map hacks..

This game is very fluid to level in. there are dozens of ways to lvl up and make it level up even fast than normal. The OP needs to be trolling. because if ANYTHING...we should be able to slow down exp or stop it like a few other games have done.
with the 2x exp weekend coming up...you will see people create new toons and lvl them to 55 in 2 days.
But ya...exp gain is too slow *rolls eyes*

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...
Have you bothered to compare to EVE Online. It takes roughly 20+ years to train everything to max level in that game.

4 days was last year. I stopped playing when they were saying they wanted to get rid of the RMAH. And this was before any kind of event in the game. and max lvl was lvl60(100)...so maybe thats the difference between our times.
and in my original comment I said Rift...that was supposed to be MapleStory

To the OP:
What level are you? On my first toon, level 30-40 seemed slow. I believe this is due to the fact that around that time, how the class plays changes. For many specs, that is the first time signature abilities are unlocked (e.g. Precision Slash, Barrage, Emergency Medpack, etc), that really affect how the class plays. If you don't master those, it takes much longer to kill the mobs, extending the grind.

Remember that most of your xp comes for turning in quests, as opposed to killing mobs.
That may be the issue. In WoW at least, you can grind mobs for XP, and it seemed that you didn't need the quests for more XP. You could also do battlegrounds with fast queue pop, and level that way (5 levels in a few hours in WoW was nothing if you PvPd). Not to make assumptions on OP, but this game also doesn't have macros or botting, so it's not 1 button to do everything for you.

To OP: leveling your first character is always, always slow. You're learning the game, the mechanics, figuring out which playstyle you prefer, and you don't have enough Legacy unlocks to help. Once your first hits max level, then it's a breeze. You will be familiar with the game, the areas, and even the flashpoints or warzones. 50-55 you need never go to Makeb, just do dailies and you will be 55 in no time at all. Take it from a terribly slow leveler - there are so many ways to level, so many shortcuts and boosts, that you will outlevel your planet, and gear, in less time than you think.

Try this experiment: go to one planet while underleveled (1-2 levels below recommended). Do ALL quests on that planet, including Heroics, area, bonus and class quests. By the time you finish the planet completely, you will have outleveled the planet.

Completely disagree with the OP.. Leveling doesn't need to be made even faster.

You can't compare that you can get to level 55 faster in lets say Wow to getting to level 55 here.. You have to compare how long does it get to max level in WoW vs here.. Honestly it is comparable. With the freebie xp buffs that you get from completing your class quests, I also normally purchase one 5 pack of the 3 hour with CC, normal rested from being logged off over night etc.. I can level either game in about 5 days played. (+/- a little time depending on how hard it is to come by specific crafting mats).

Then to top it off Bioware does things like this coming weekend where you get freebie xp on top of all the other bonus's.

About the only thing that will be faster is when Blizzard eventually puts up the purchasable level 90's..

Oh god please NO!

I am a subscriber, am not in a guild so no guild bonus, never use the XP buffs (I throw the free ones away) and I never play a levelling character during double XP weekends. I only do class quests and the main planet quest lines plus a daily FP when levelling yet my characters are consistently 3 - 5 levels above the content they are running and I regularly hit level 55 on Voss. The last thing I need is more XP.

If there was such a thing as an XP debuff that made you gain XP more slowly then I would use it.
