During Beta, I kinda ignored PvP despite loving PvP. I just had so much fun with Events, and the local quests that I felt no need to PvP.
Might want to talk leveling strategies for PvE focused players.
I found that being lower level in some high level Events gave me massive XP and karma. The higher level players were kind enough to help me and so I leveled fast. Then I'd go back and revisit some of the lower level areas and help out lower level players doing Events. It was a great way to get XP.
Don't forget to get your harvesting tools though like I did for a long time. Harvesting gives you some nice XP and not to mention moolah.
I found the best way to level was to go into a new story area.... seek out the hearts, then do those quests as I waited for events to pop... then raced over to the events and got the XP from them, then finished up the hearts quests. Every so often, I'd then go to the personal storyline. There was a level recommendation on the personal storyline and that recommendation was usually smart.
Any more thoughts? Maybe can edit this post up to be something good
