It’s rare for me to not be done with the leveling in a Final Fantasy XIV expansion or a World of Warcraft expansion in a couple of days. This is intentional. While I’m not going for any sort of server first or world records, the fact of the matter is that these games are something I need to discuss as part of my job and I consider it a dereliction of duty to not be able to discuss these things in their totality. Thus, my focus is on getting a lot done within a short span of time.
For the majority of our readers, this is not the case. You can take a slower path if you want to. Then again, you might choose to go the quicker route because you are going for some sort of record or just because you’re having a lot of fun with the game and want to play a bunch of it. So how quickly do you aim for the level cap in MMOs? Does it change for new games or do you generally treat expansions, updates, and new titles the same in that regard?
