Eh, it's just like any other. I don't see a lot of low level parties going on but with FoV it's not really needed for decent xp. At about 19 it picks up dramatically.
My only complaint thus far is the phasing towards "equal" play. The whining and the nerfing has graduated from particular talent/ability nonsense towards this new complete rewrite on what it means to be "balanced". If anything is going to kill this game its the sad state of people in general wanting things their way and only their way. Keep it up and we'll all be pansies with the same number of petals, thrown in an arena and told to pluck ourselves.
