It's a great game, I have played from release, but lately has become a bit too streamlined. There are tons of content from the old world and the expansions, but the grinding, without exp potions or bonuses, can be a bit tedious.
The ftp model is a bit off, there are too many limitations, most of em avoided paying 10 bucks. But then there are only 4 races and 4 professions to chose for free.
As Keitosha said you can download the game from steam, but the best way is, for me, using the executable found in the everquest2 page. Both will install the whole game, its about 15gb.
DoV isn't needed till lvl 85, but lvl 90 can be reached without it, so you can wait and see if you like the game before buying.
I would suggest playing in the most populated servers, either Freeport, the best but annoying at times, or Antonia Bayle.
