This has been my experience as well. Doing ONLY normal/solo story, class, and side-quest content on a planet (so NOT including heroics or any group content, the bonus series, flashpoints, daily space combats, or PvP) will keep you right at appropriate level range. Doing ANY of that additional content quickly puts you ahead of the leveling curve.

I cannot fathom how someone can end up behind the leveling curve unless they are literally doing nothing but their class quests and skipping all other content.

If you are 3 levels below where you should be for Quesh... are you accidentally skipping the 32-36 planet (Taris for Empire, Balmorra for Republic)?

I have the opposite problem just got on hoth and im 41 and got to quesh I was 39 or 40 I've only did a handful of heroics and skip alot more than I would like just to not be over leveled I do the bonus objectives of all the quests but skipped Balmora bonus series since I don't want to be OP in my storyline and pwn npcs 5 lvls below me.. Did warzone a bit got 15 valor and im not even updated on flashpoints.. I really don't know why I seem to be way ahead of my story and others seem to do everything and be behind.

My first character and I just got to Quesh at level 39 and a half. I've done a few flashpoints and probably half the heroics out there but skipped all non-class quests on planets like Tatooine and Balmora. I do a space or pvp daily a few times a week.

I did no flashpoints, no pvp, space combat for about an hour one day when I was bored, and never fell behind. All I did was quest. But when I quest, I don't find ways to tiptoe around mobs (like so many people do). I go thru them on the way to and back from a quest objective. Nice source of add'l xp.

Oh, and always logged out in a rested area. What little rested xp I had im sure helped.

no offense, this is a complete bullcrap. i am lvl 42 halfway to 43 on Hoth and almost finished it, already 3 levels above the planet (most mobs are lvl 39). never did bonus series on any planet, skipped 2 planets doing only class quest, did only half of Tatooine, havent grind space missions - occasionally dailies only, skipped some flash points, other did only once. Did plenty of PvP, true, but still, i think if one really does everything you say he will find himself way above leveling curve, and by way above i mean gray planets one by one.

this game offers most comfortable leveling i ever witnessed in an mmo yet.
it has flaws, but leveling is not the one. in fact, it is one of the strongest and well done part of the game.

Agree with most of the people in this thread who are telling OP "You are doing it wrong".

I don't do flash points, they take too long to get going, don't give anything in return at all.
Leveling is just too fast, to fanny around with instances and heroics.
I didn't do any space missions or PvP and got to Quesh at level 38ish on both characters so you must be missing something out.

I try do every bonus quest I can for the XP and all the heroics and have never under level for any planet.

*** have i missed? i followed my story picking up all the little sides quests...
if you are 5 entire levels too low then you must be doing something very wrong. even with no bonus series/pvp/flashpoints you would be at most only 2 levels behind.

The attitudes here are a bit to harsh to elaborate.
