At any rate, is what's being offered in the starter pack worth getting? How long would it take a mediocre-skill noob to get all that stuff by just playing and how much of a slog would it be?

I'd do it, if only for the permanent 50% boost. I paid $7.50 during the beta for a 2-week booster which included the permanent 50% VIP boost (back when they still offered that). Considering what I've gotten out of the game, and how much extra XP that boost has given, it's definitely been worth it.

The 4 bonus weapons will help. Each is probably worth a few days of effort, and they're all actually weapons you'd actually want (aside from the MIRV, they're among the first things I'd unlock, actually), and the Reach and Ultracapacitor II upgrades are very handy.
