I think its a bit ridiculous, i mean what's the point of leveling anymore then? I've always found the spirit of WoW was in the journey, the lore, the experience going through different zones with quests and dungeons and the scenic beauty of the world to experience.Power leveling ... triple xps ... .etc?? Whats the point? Why don't blizzard just allow people to start their character at 70 and be done with it? I got 9 x 70s of all different classes and I liked them all, and would probably quest up another toon from ground up if there is a new class (DK soon). I believe its a good idea when blizzard has imposed on the upcoming expansion that people with at least one 60 to get to create a DK starting from 55. To carry that methodology further, then a similar system can be setup that people with at least one 70 can create other 70 classes or start from level 1 if they chose to be.Skimming new users with extra XP so that they level faster and get to play the same content at the referring friend is a good idea, but really, they would have missed all that "magic" in the original WoW, I think and its pretty sad.When I PUG with people for Kara or end game instances (70s), I expect them to know their class or role better, not some fresh player that got powered leveled to 70 by some friends and have no idea to what to or expected of them.Come to think of it ... whats the point of leveling at all? Why don't each of us just create a character at 70, 80 or 100 then journey through Azeroth, Outland or Northerend?A few article back, there is a article on what dungeons people missed in their appropriate designed/intended level and reading on that brought some very sad inspiration of the magic that was lost in the original WoW (eg. running Deadmine at 70 would never feel the same as running it at 18)....
