In other news... this morning as I was mucking around and recording a video ... at 03.11am on 8 Dec 2012...
I can safely say that Hunt Rift zerging is THE fastest way to get XP - I was getting about 300k XP plus per Hunt Rift at level 59.
Bought myself some epic starter pieces to get hit capped and a few enchants and I am now heroic-ready.
So, with a bit of careful planning and some platinum, it is pretty easy going to prepare.
I intend on doing all the quests in more detail later. I will probably slowly level one of my clerics now, so maybe I will finish all the quests on him to avoid boredom - as Jabberwocky was my "main" in Rift v1
My displeasure for leveling in any MMO is pretty high so my race to 60 meant I missed out on many of the epic world events and such since there wasn't enough people to take part in them. Much different story now though.
Well phase 2 of the fun starts now for you. Pugs are starting to get a bit better at the experts and such but it was a real rough go at the start.
I had to post this parade of gamers doing a zone event at 3:29am (clock seen below my mini-map) in the morning. It seems there is little or now downtime for max level players now. Trion has created a monster!
Made it to 60 on my Mage
54.5 on my warrior going to 60 ....solo SUCKSSSSSSS on a warrior compared to Mage
What has been made by QQ can be unmade by QQ!!!
Gonna reach 57 tonight is the plan, sucks that I had to work today (and next saturday), but hopefully I will get a taste of end game during christmas! Also to Wocky (or someone else with knowledge) is it worth it to do hunt rifts solo (with randoms joining as they pass etc) or should you get a group up front? Questing is getting kinda stale, story quests are good but it seems inevitable to do tons of carnage along to get enough xp per zone, and I'm getting tired of carnages.

57 is the best level to start Hunt Rifts. Get a bunch of other 57's to buy Hunt Lures and just zerg, zerg, zerg in a group.
