With no job or school, if you play from morning to bed time, you get 80 in 4-5 days eaily. It just happens too.. It's not rushing, just playing. Gathering, story quests, hearts, crafting, going to events when you see them pop up.

They probably could've kept the level at 20.  Since you get downlevelled anywhere you go it seems kinda pointless to rush.

I have class/work full time and I hit 80 yesterday (while doing WvW). Took me around 100 hours of in-game time since I wasn't trying to level efficiently. I did storyline quests, DEs, and WvW. Crafting also helps a lot.

Sorry, but I just had to reply.
You say you have class & work full time. You say you have around 100+ hours of ingame time. The game has been out for ~12 days now - so 12*24 = 288 hours, 288-100 = 188 hours you have for your classes, work & sleeping. Lets say you sleep the minimum required for an adult - 8 hours. 8*12 = 96. 188-96 = 92 hours left for work / classes. If we include both weekends (assuming you don't work on weekends), that makes 4*16 = 64 (Not including the 8 hours of sleep since I already took that into consideration.) 96-64 = 32 hours left for work/classes.
You either lied about having classes or a job, took 2 weeks off, or got fired.
I... I just had to... I'm sorry...

EDIT: Oh, there's also two other possibilities - your job is a game tester, or you are a Mafia Boss that doesn't need to do anything to rack in that cash.

No, I just play almost any time I'm not in class/work. I have class/work from 8-5 M-F. I also don't usually sleep for 8 hours.

11 days == 264 hours (Aug 25th-Sept 4th)

63 hours working or in class (7days*9hours)
68 hours played via weekends (4days*17 hours; 8am-1am)
56 hours after class/work (5pm-1am; 7days*8 hours)
---
187 hours used

264
-187
----
77 hours left for sleep (7/night)

Just some rough numbers (some days more, some days less), but it shows that's definitely possible. Then again, I guess that this is actually a pretty hardcore schedule rofl. :D

EDIT:
Also, my job is doing fine and my GPA is 3.90+/4.00.

You do realize thats not a full-time job right lol?  Thats part-time work and full time school.  Full-time job is 8 hours of work Monday through friday, in which case you would have no time for classes except in the evening.  And obviously that means you would not have enough time for GW2 unless you flat-out never slept.

The other guy just misunderstood because he was working off of the fact that you said you had a full time job and full-time school, which  you don't lol.

Ah, I worded my original post poorly and didn't realize it. I simply meant that for 9 hours a day I have class/work. Also, he said "You either lied about having classes or a job".

The previous posts in the thread seemed to be about people with full time jobs (or class) having issues leveling, so in that context, my post made sense to me. Apologies for the confusion! :D

Why rush in this game? Just go at your own pace and enjoy the content, I dont think this game has "game begins at 80" mentality. Maybe rushing to 80 is simply a waste in the end.

Not really.  Isn't the mantra of this game "have fun".  Some people love PvP.  Some people love to craft.  Some people love to RP. Some people love to explore.  Why is then "wrong" that some people love to race to 80?  Because it conflicts with what you consider to be fun?

I'll hit 80 tonight on my first character.  Certainly not on the "bleeding edge", but definitely in the first group.  I've done exclusively hearts and DE's.  I've had an absolute blast.  I haven't PvP'd (except for one 5 minute stint of WvWvW).  I haven't crafted (actually I may have for about 5 minutes).  I haven't RP'd.  I only have 100% map on one zone.  So that must mean I'm doing something wrong?  I'm having fun.  That is the point...  isn't it?

I'll probably do a lot more with my next character, because I'd like to explore other facets of the game.  But that doesn't make what I did with my first character wrong.

Edit: typo

Oh, and if it matters...  I'm a happily married father of two beautiful girls with a full-time job and I feel like I have a pretty good balance in my life.  If it matters...

Whenever I lvl my alts I usually try to do everything up until level 35, after that I run AC dungeon usually with lvl 80 groups and always ask if they're okay with me switching to my alt at last boss which most are..just make sure that you're never the person that opens the instance or it'll reset when you do the alt switch.

After last boss dies my alt cashes in 70% xp each time and it's possible to keep doing this non-stop aslong as you don't finish same path within 30 mins so the DR kicks in.

Got my mesmer from 35-80 purely from AC dungeon by switching to it at last boss and it's quick levels since all paths are pretty much easy except maybe 3rd path but if it's a lvl 80 group all paths are a breeze.

Good day:

GW2 is very good for casual play; almost everything gives you experience.

While I'm an alt person running many alts, my last character (a guardian) to create (after getting a warrior to 56, a ranger to 30, an elementalist to 47,  a necro to 21, and a thief to 41)  just got to level 80 (before the others).  I guess I stuck with the guardian rather than continuing to switch as before because there was less micro management to play (same for the warrior, but he's off at chef school).

This was not speed leveling, but trying to get each skill point on every map I could access that was within level, doing heart events, and spending most of the time on specific dynamic events (most of the time, these would help clear heart quests near the dynamic event).

Plus as you travel, remember to get every resource node near your location.  That plus revive NPC's and players.

The other evening I was doing the Halloween event where you go through a door, and then you are playing as an 80 toon... and someone (who was level 47 at the time) shared they got in the event in their low 20's and stayed there getting over 20 levels.

Thank you.
