It is grindy, but the longer your play sessions are, the shorter it will take to get the plat. The more levels you beat before going back to town to restock up for items, the larger your multipliers for gold/xp/score get after each level. In the past two days I went from level 28 to level 41 in two 2 hour sessions.
It always takes me to town after a dungeon it seems. How do I avoid that?
IMO it's a good MMO in its entirety and it won't take long to get used to. There's a bunch of quests & missions etc, becoming a legendary member will increase the enjoyment of the game with its perks (all perks are on the official site). The only problem I have with DCUO is how long it takes to level solo and the difficulty of the quests solo. Playing with other people in a group doing quests together etc is the BEST way to go.
Legendary being an optional subscription I'm guessing? How's the population? Is it fairly dead or a lot of people?
edit: Legendary perks seem pretty good at first glace.
