As far as I'm concerned, levelling is a chore. For me, best case scenario I'd consider it a test I have to pass to be allowed to use that character at level cap. But there is nothing on the way to cap that is so interesting to me that I would actually enjoy levelling a character there. Instances? They have them at 70, with better rewards. PvP? They have that at 70, with better rewards. Raiding? Well I could stop at 60 (if there were ~39 other 60s who wanted to do pre-BC raids), but even then, I'd be so close to 70 what would be the point.But at 70, it all changes. Instead of playing the game in order to get XP and level, you are playing the game to do exactly the things you want. For example, I actually enjoy getting my professions skilled up. But I'm not prepared to do it during the levelling process as it's a tonne easier at cap - hence why I always take two gathering professions while I level. But at 70, you don't have the idea of "I could be getting XP right now" in the back of your mind. You're free, in a sense.But just to show how much of a chore levelling is to me (and a few other people I know), we all have plenty of alts. I myself have 8 alts on the same server as my main, as I'm one of those dreamers who would love to have one of every class at cap. But I won't even touch those alts unless they have full rested XP. It's just too tedious to level them without. That said, they're all currently going at just under a level an hour, which I would consider to be pretty good at around level 30. ^^ Can't wait to see how fast they go with 2.3!
