The levelling curve is same as Aion, probably 3 months max level if you're casual and 3 weeks to a month if you burn through it.

I was refering to those that had already established themselves and then wants to main one of the new races that may come out in 3 months 6 months 1 year.

That has been an issue in every game, ever. New class, new race, and they are behind the times. 

BUT!  If you look at the new race L50 a year from now,  he get to L50 in a set of green gear say. In WoW / Rift / EQ, that would mean they would be at a fraction of the power compared to a raid/crafted geared player.  If the numbers shown for the advantages of a mid ranged weapon or armor, compared to a top of the line one hold true come launch there will be little difference. As long as you still have your buddies / guild / expedition to assist you with gear there should be little is any difficulty 'catching up'.

I will try and find the numbers, but there are 12 grades of gear from the common 'Grey' trash to the top of the line.  A Grey item was like 0.75 of base, a tier 6/7 was 1.55, and a top of the line was 1.75. So a full suit of top of the line crafted, costing tons of rare mats would be what 12-15% better than a midrange set?  Better is Better, sure, but the incremental increases make the better gear more of an Ego booster, than truly God-like as in some games.
