I don't get to play very often or for very long (maybe play about 7-8 times a month for a few hours at a time, the occasional day where I might play between 5-8 hours total. I've been playing since May, and by September I had 2 jobs at level 50, everything else between 15-40, and a couple crafts around 20. Did most of the missions and stuff like that, so accomplished a fair bit with very little effort/help. So it isn't hard to accomplish basic things, but I haven't really pushed to get involved with the community too much at this point because I didn't want people to rely on me to be around a lot... when 2.0 comes out, that may change depending on how good the game ends up being :P

Someday soon my friends, this ride will come to and end, and we can't just get in line again.
