Vistas aren't too bad, it's the points of interest that take a metric fuckton of patience to find. They at least clue you in if it's above or below you, but sometimes the path to get there is so obscure I needed a guide to figure out WTF it was. Good design should mean it never takes more than five minutes to find it. I've had to give up on a few because the time wasted is not worth the paltry exp.
So far this is my biggest complaint if your refereing to those viewpoints where I have to climb up to the ass end of no where. lol. Not exactly fun to do on a keyboard.
I was able to hit the level cap in WoW at 20 in less then 12 hours thru their trial. I'm not sure what is the appropriate amount of time one should spend to hit max level in MMOs these days. Back when I use to play UO and went to EQ I would reckon thousands of hours but that was mixed in with socializing and not straight grinding.
Maybe WvW will be back today. . .
