I doubt it's a game killer as well. For one thing, these players obviously have a friend playing already, so there's potentially someone to teach them the ropes.Although, there is the issue with it: 1 of my friends started just before the RaF was introduced, and then was able to persuade another to come along by referral.So, when I created a lowbie alt to join in with them, I quickly discovered they would level faster than me when we were together. Sure, when I played without them, I could level at a good pace due to experience, but that's not the point - they game almost 3 levels for my 1.So instead, I just help them on my main, and teach them things about the low-end of the game [where they are just now] - why to pick certain talents/professions, etc.As someone else said - my first time playing, I was quite clueless on the best way to play my class until I'd been max level for quite a while, and even then, I'd learn new things all the time.[I never used rupture until I was raiding as a rogue - I didn't understand the need or benefit of it until then.]Sure, the new players won't spend as long learning how to play the class as they level, but good chances are, they'll have someone able to point out their mistakes and anything they've missed.But other, so called "experienced" players writing them off before they've even got to the end-game is what will probably kill it for them - a self-fulfilling prophecy, if you will...
