    You know, leveling without achievements is kinda how most the game was. Its not really that much more grindy than it was originally. You spend days grinding exp for 1 level.
    Look at the flip side - achievements were just easy cake mode.

    It's not 1999. It's 2024. Demographics changed, people are older with other things to do then sit in front of their computers 24/7.

    People with full crews can raise up personas quickly; the rest of us not so much.

    I'm sure this will work out well for pl services.

    It's not about entitlement. I'm planning on rolling a new set of personas this year when the feature is finished. That includes a path to effective leveling after 110. Until then There are better games to play. Im playing season of discovery now.

    If no changes are made I'd love to hear how many people have level 125 personas made off level 125 base characters in a year. I wouldn't be surprised if it was less than 50.

    Can you please point to the part in my OP, where I wanted max level & AA immediately?

    I'd be surprised if it wasn't more than 50 as of right now.

    Just to clarify, are you specifying that the main (original persona) was rolled at level 1 and leveled to 125 since this past month, or just that it is level 125 now (so, probably was 120 going into December)?

    Everyone seems to agree, getting to 110 is not that big of a deal. So, that's 15 more levels. If you did nothing other than Overseer, that's 15 levels x 10 days per level = 150 days = 5 months. I'm sure there are those who have actively leveled personas, so it would be a LOT less than 5 months.

    I'm saying that the number of people who level their main to 125 with LS' release and then level a persona to level 125 is very low. Sure, there are probably going to be some people who spend their DBG cash on a heroic 100 and then just oversee it to 125, but the value proposition of personas is so low the number of people who will bother will be just as low. The number of people who grind it out will be even smaller, and mostly limited to people who just enjoy endless grinding and personas is just an excuse to keep the grind going.

    For me, it's pretty simple: without achievements XP, I wont touch to the Persona system.
    This and the fact that the chance to brick your character is still pretty high.
    I'll stick with my good old alts, and that's all.

    I'm not saying you're wrong, because I think you're probably right.

    I'm just going to say that I went 115-120 and max AA before I even finished getting a full set of 1 augment in NoS, and max AA in LS before finishing a full set of any one augment (I did get all the stuff for t3 weapons at least) in LS, and the only progression I did for either came after I was level capped. Similarly, the only progression I did in nuVelious was for the ear, again, after level cap.

    I planned on leveling an alt persona set (mostly to make my druid a shaman, and also to play around with an SK tank, and might as well do a full box since I'm doing that) once things are fixed correctly, I figured it would give me an excuse to actually go back and finish all the hero AA's I havent done in the old zones.

    You dare mention a system to make leveling easier. That's no good for EQ. Instead we buy krono and buy PL to level instead with spam in general chat 24/7. That is more good for EQ!

    Agreed, IMO Personas are stupid and a waste of time, make an alt and level it up with achievements / get your own augs and gear. It is not really complicated. Now to persona a toon on your top 5 toon with all TS / AP / ALL Evolves? sure, but don't complain it takes too long to level, you can put the same amount of effort into Augging and gearing as it would to painfully level from 100-125. But for you people who are complaining about Levels ill PL you for some krono :)
