How fast players decide to level their characters is a very personal thing. Some prefer to take it slow, to log in once in a while, soak up the world, and read every storyline there is from beginning to end. Others rely on fervent research, practice, and teamwork to reach the highest level not only quickly, but first.
On October 7, 2009 at 11:32 p.m. BST (more), Drno and Almisaela were the first two players to reach level 50. Both are members of the known "For the Harmony" Legion. You read it rightthe first two! They happened to both reach it at the exact same time!
