quite possibly the most boring gimmick leveling idea ever.I'm intrigued by the idea of a melee hunter, or perhaps a melee-only casting class, and maybe a naked druid/rogue/etc or whatever for leveling... but not killing anything in a game where killing things is %90 of the game, seems a bit like you're just stretching to find an angle. I could see this being at least slightly enjoyable as a healer if you got to 16ish and just leveled entirely through instancing (totally plausible, although boring I suppose) but refusing to do even that seems like it's going to just take forever and ever and not even really be rewarding since there doesn't seem to be a realistic chance that you'll have enough time before the game is literally dead before you're going to hit 80. or 90. daily BG quests will pretty much take 5-6 months per level if that's all you can do at some point, and it almost surely is. (and by the math, L60 will take approximately 6 months worth of daily BG quests assuming you can get a win in whatever BG it is every day... so that's kinda lame).I'd rather see one of the more interesting varieties on crippled leveling, but that's just me I guess.

You're intrigued buy leveling a melee hunter that has like 1 or 2 melee attacks other then auto-attack? How difficult or rewarding is it go out kill low level greens til you hit 70? Any Monkey with half a brain and can do that. This guy is actually having to use problem solving skills to work out innovative ways of reaching his goals. Definately more intriguing in my opinion.

I've been instance grinding my holy priest from level 18 (I have only done one quest outside an instance and it was my priest chain that ends in ST. Other than that, I just take such instance quests as people share in group) and although its slower levelling than normal it doesn't take forever. I've got about 10 days /played at level 54. From comparing with someone who levelled their priest shadow specced, it takes about 3 hours of logged time (as a lot of that time is waiting for groups to get together, not just in the instances) for me to make the amount of xp that a shadow priest gets questing.
