I'm not worried so much about how fast or slow the leveling is, because I'm honestly in no rush. I'm enjoying the game at a rather slow pace. I want burst damage for PvP and max DPS for raiding. Both of those things only come into play at level 50. I'll have to look into Focus a bit more, I kind of discounted it because it's shared and just assumed it probably wasn't going to be very good.
