One thing I don't want to see: All the work we've put into outlands becoming null and void. If we start to level a new toon, will we bother with CE/Sha'tar/Netherwing/HH/etc rep in Outlands? Or will we quickly breeze through it and not bother trying to go for exalted anymore, like the Argent Dawn is these days.Also, as we still going to be able to get flying/epic flying mounts at 70? And what about money making, are we going to make as much money at level 70 as we once did?And are they going to give us more bank space, so we can keep all the gear we worked so hard for and can't bear to vendor, after it's become outdated?Lastly, will Northrend go down as much as Azeroth does these days? (You have no idea how many times this past week, on Bronzebeard, where I was so happy to be in Outlands!)

Sorry, all your work in Outland (and Azeroth) is going to be null and void yet again. They've stated multiple times that it's %100 intentional to not re-use factions in order to give new people an even footing compared to the people with 3 year old characters that are exalted with everything already. Same as the expansion's gear reset. When leveling to 80 from a fresh character, you'll definitely have no need for any of the rep from any of the factions. (yet another reason they dumped the heroic instance requirement to honored, since it's hard to NOT be honored just through questing in outland). None of the rep-based items will be worth a crap (just like the rep-based stuff in Azeroth right now) and you'll basically just want to hit 68 as soon as possible and start working on your useful things.

Also, you can go ahead and count out the flying mount. Why would they give us access to fly RIGHT to the guy we need to kill for X quest.Flying mounts made questing a breeze once I hit 70. They would have to have some solution like "unlocking" your flying mount once you are 80 in the new realm.I've seen post where they said they didn't want people skipping content, and I'd have to admit, I'd skip the hell out of it if we got flying mounts straight off the bat in the new world.
