I don't think the scroll does much good where brand new players are concerned. Say you're just starting out in TERA and you know someone that has a 65. Using a scroll to catch up with them means you won't have any experience with the game before jumping into high end dungeons. You'd be setting yourself up for a miserable time (not to mention the people you pair with in instance matching). I realize the level 1 to 60 experience isn't the same as it used to be in TERA but it still serves a purpose.

Economy-wise, if the scroll is in demand and you're willing to pay gold to get one from the broker, I'm not sure why you'd consider it overpriced unless you just don't want to spend what it's worth to other people.
