I would rather see them only let you put points in 2-3 trees so the grind requirement isn't so steep.
In EQ2 max AA was pretty much required for raids, but because there was a cap and it wasn't all that hard to max, no one really complained. It also helped that you got large one time bonuses from killing bosses, turning in quests, and map discoveries. You got your fist 150/320 lvls or so just from making it to lvl cap. Because the grind wasn't that bad, plenty of people i knew had multiple alts with max AA.
