I have played MMO's for 15 years or more and I have learned a lot. First, I am not the best and never will be the best in the game. And I will never be "first" at stuff either. However, I do enjoy the game for what it offers and I have fun.
Go with your own suggestion and just enjoy the game and go at your own pace. This is a beautiful game and has a lot of depth if you choose to see it. Yes, we all get item and level envy, but they I feel deters from the game experience.
I also play a sorc and I am currently lvl 50. 99% of that time was spent soloing. I only solo because I can only play for short amounts of time here and there so committing to a party for more than an hour is tough for me. One aspect of this game that I really like is that you can solo effectively. You dont need the best gear to succeed either. It wasnt until lvl 38 that I knew what a "gold" item was. I didnt buy my first item until about lvl 42.
You can move along in the game without any issues if you only do the solo quests. I am still on track and have only done 3 5 person quests. If you are in an area and need help, just shout and most likely someone will duo with you for that area and quest.
So sit back, relax and enjoy.
