What will you be doing to level up - PvE or PvP?

With the announcement recently that we will be able to get Xp and level up inside of Cyrodil just as if we were to level up in our own areas I had a question. Does anybody have the goal in mind to actual get from 10-50 in Cyrodil? Honestly, most any game I've ever seen that does that has a much much slower leveling system in PvP than it does in PvE. Sure there are games such as Warhammer online that made you level primarily through PvP even, but that doesn't really work either. . While it's something they probably won't announce, I'd very much like to know whether PvP leveling or PvE leveling is faster. . or even if it is to be roughly the same pace.

I'm sure they will make both PvE and PvP equal in how fast you level. It allows you to play the game how you want to play without anyone getting a boost just because they want to PvE/PvP.

I will be most likely doing both PvP and PvE equally, give a little variety to my gameplay. Then again I always like the PvE/Story of TES games so I may focus more on PvE for leveling. It all depends on what I enjoy more when I get to play the game.

I know I will try pvp now and than, and most probably before I hit max level. Tough most of my levelling will be through pve, with pvp as a side dish :)

Every elder scrolls fan loves PvE but this article on TESO website makes PvP sound really really fun.

Once i hit level 10 I will defently go check out Cyrodiil. I plan on being a high skill stealth based assasin type (backstab / sneak attack).

I have a feeling it will be alot like DOAC where leveling in Cyrodiil actually gives you better exp rewards because of the risk there. Killing mobs and doing quests or repeatables from the towns.

For leveling i will be mostly in Cyrodiil but away from the hot spots or keep sieges, probably doing the caves, ruins, and crypts, I have always loved the "watch your back" feeling so I will be looking for enemy players at the same time, So I can also be working on my AVA skill tree /abilities.
Since i also like to craft i like the thought of roaming around Cyrodiil looking for resource nodes and gathering materials while at the same time sneaking up and killing enemy players trying to take MY resources :P If at times (like in DAOC) an important keep or especially my guild keep is under attack, I will stop what i'm doing to go and defend and come back once th threat is gone.

I will still check out the main zones and eventually try to finish them but i think 80% of my time will be in Cyrodill. 95% once i'm max level.

For me it depends on which provides exp at a faster rate.

@Artarius Aetius
Yah, that's what I was thinking. Seeing as the statement stands that you need 2 or 3 lvl 10s to take down a 50. . seems a bit pointless. Sure, if I end up getting it at launch then that's all well & good to go into PvP early.. still.. probably just going to do whatever is fastest and max out so that I can own all the things.

Why would anyone care which is faster? Unless you are one of the race-levelers, I would simply suggest take the path that means more fun to you.

I did that race-leveling thing with GW2 and honestly it wasnt fun at all, endgame zones were empty and guildies far behind, very boring

I will probably do it like i did in GW2, i leveled my first character mainly through pve with some wpvp in the middle but the two characters that i maxed after were completely leveled through pvp alone. I guess it really depends on how much i will enjoy either of the approaches, be it pve and pvp.

Don't have cojones, but something that can take a pounding much better than those delicate things.
