Really enjoying this game so far through the beta but one thing kinda bugs me. I'm used to having played XI and compared to that the entire experience seems a bit... fast paced.
I'm only level 12 or so but between what seems so far like a fairly fast leveling system, the quick fights and the constant succession of quests everything seems to be moving at a bit of a breakneck speed.
I think in particular it's the quests that are giving me the feeling. With XI you were pretty much dropped off in town and left to your own to figure things out and progress at your own pace but the quests that guide you around here definitely speed up that experience quite a bit.
I don't think people could have gotten to far ahead or even know what the current cap is but or those that have leveled further have things slowed down any as you've progressed? Like quests that take longer to complete or require more travel time, longer breaks between leveling up and more drawn out battles?
