For your first character doing heart events, farming every tree, mine, plant you come across and always dropping what you are doing and helping in dynamic events is the fastest way to level.

The greatest xp/time are events so if you can find continuously repeating event chains that is the fastest way to level outside for a first time character.

  • You could also spend gems on xp booster items from the gem store. Dynamic events are the best way to get exp whilst exploring imho.

Leveling a crafting profession to 400 gives you ~10 levels (this xp is percentage based, so it always gives you 10 levels, regardless of what level you started at).

There are 8 crafting professions, and a the max level is 80, so if you have the mats, you can hit 80 from 2 in under an hour.

  • So if I'm a new player I only have to farm crafting mats or money to buy crafting mats?

  • @F.S. I don't agree. There's nothing to be gained from getting to max level as fast as possible. And you are, perhaps, underestimating the raw volumes of materials required to do so. Sep 19, 2012 at 11:24

    I did not ask whether I will gain anything or not. I just asked which way is the fastest.
