One of the best (as well as unique) features EverQuest II offers is that the player can determine his leveling speed after hitting level 10. You can do this by adjusting the amount of XP that is spend on Alternate Advancement (AA).
So far (up to level 28 for me now), I still thing that the leveling speed is too high. There initially I've set my AA gain to 50%, I recently increased it to 75%, and only recently even to 90%. This means I will gain a HUGE amount of Alternate Advancement points (of which half I most likely can't spend right now because I don't have the skills yet top assign the AA to), but at least I can do the quests I want to without my level getting way too high.
But even with the high AA setting of 90%, I still think I'm leveling too fast. Right now I'm playing in and around the Nektulos Forest to get my level 20 class armor set (I only learned about it on level 24, which means I've gained 4 levels to get it...).
Though the class armor set is now complete, I did have to remove a lot or lower level quests in the Nektulos Forest already. A couple of them were for Freeport militia status gain (and they were in the lower 20's level range), but I think I'll pick them up again later on (status is always good )
And now I'm talking about the AA gain, I remember chatting with a guild-member this weekend. She has set set AA gain to 100% and is stuck on level 50 now, enjoying most of the content there is (which is a lot!). We've agreed that when I hit 50, I will set to 100% AA gain as well and we'll team up doing most of the stuff to do. This means I have only 22 more levels to go before I'm 'stuck' on 50.
We also agreed to stand still on level 70 again, but I'm not sure I'll do that and instead will go to 80 and then stop leveling again. Reason is that on level 80 I can tame exotic animals like dragons and the alike, and I SO WANT A DRAGON as pet
