    PVP. Quests. Dungeons. Rifts. Zone events. Mentoring.

    There's a lot of other ways to level.

    Join a guild. Ask if an Outfitter can make you some cheap bags to keep you going. 95% of the time a guild will have someone willing to make you some cheap bags for free.

    It's not 'just' you, but it is your own fault.

    In a game that has such a wide variety in leveling you do the most repetitive and boring way possible non stop...yeah...diversity will save you.

    Try instant adventures in other zones too! It's awesome in the max level zones when you get all sorts of max level players from even some of the best guilds on your shard running around plowing through everything. Adds a good sense of teamwork and fun to it.

    You know, at first I kinda liked IA, but now I really feel it was kinda one of the worst things they have added. It really is boring and repetitive. It also happens to be the fastest and human nature is to take the path of least resistance. Which then leads to burnout. It really seemed like a great idea, but has not worked out to be so.

    I'm definitely not saying to do it and only it... IA on its own will yes, cause burnout for even the most die-hard Rifter, that's for sure.

    Eh I think it is still a good idea. Its not really Trions fault people will do them over and over and over despite being bored out of their minds of them. Not saying they couldn;t make it more fun but if people chose to do them over and over that is their choice.

    Well, in a sort of way it is their fault. It IS the fastest way to level, unless you ALWAYS win PvP, which to guarantee you need to go in pre-made, which increases your PvP que tenfold if there are not other pre-mades queing, or you have a static group that can run dungeons efficiently. Again, it is withing human nature to take the path of least resistance, and that is IA. If they had made the rewards not so desirable and people still used it then it's not on them anymore, however, it is the fastest way, they designed it as such.

    If the fastest way is the only way to you, then it's a *choice* you make to limit yourself to it.

    If you won't diversify because the other ways are 'less efficient' that's a trap of your own making, not something you can blame on Trion.

    Lots of current MMO players have forgotten 'fun' and replaced it with 'efficient' and 'fastest' and then wonder why they burn out and get unhappy.

    Actually, it is not the choice I made. The choice I made was to level with a static group through dungeons. Play with a group of like minded friends. Then on my alt I am levelign via questing and enjoying the story. However, posts like this and comments I have seen in game and in guilds show that people take the path of least resistance, and then get bored. This did not happen to me, do not put words in my mouth.

    In this particular case, 'you' was not personal. Sorry if you took it as such this time.

    I dont know how viable leveling in warfronts is these days without twinks, but that was usually how I leveled up to... was it 40-something, then I did instant adventures up to 50. Now it's lvl 60 so if both systems are viable I should mix between the two... so far it doesnt seem like lvl 50-60 brings anything exciting in questing part... unless you like exploring new worlds for the sake of exploring new worlds.
    However, they said that removing twinks would still make leveling in pvp an option, and with twinks there was almost instant pop queues at all levels so give warfronts a try (however when I tried leveling in warfronts before twinks were in place I hade 2h queues off peak hours to join a single one:P)
