...until i hit lvl 20. Simply put, i ran out of quests. (repeatable & crafting quests shouldn't be required to level)
It's severely lacking in the 20-25 range (sounds just like that other MMO), and others have said it gets worse later on. From what i've read on Aionsource's forums, it's faster to just grind on mobs than it is to quest, gather, and even PvP.
Don't get me wrong, i'm not trying to imply that questing should be the only way, or even be the fastest way to level, but it should be an alternate path to get me to max level or at least to the next questing hub. Even if questing is slower or faster than other routes, or whether it's solo or group oriented, questing should be there.
Why? Because questing immerses me more into the world than just grinding on mobs. Even those annoying fetch x and slay # of x type of quests give me a purpose to do it (once again, repeatable quests don't count in my eyes), otherwise what's my purpose in that world if i don't have stories to follow? Questing also gives me a purpose to go back and forth between towns and cities, so i can sell, auction, and interact with others while taking a break from the monotonous grind.
If NCSoft would just up the XP gain from quests in that level range, it wouldn't be so bad. Unless the next leveling zones are also lacking, then that also means the PvE content is lacking as well...which is pretty bad.
p.s. please do NOT think i'm only comparing this to WoW, i'm comparing it to many other MMOs, including WoW. (hmm this is sig worthy)
p.s.s. this isn't a wall of text either, since i used paragraphs
