My issues with RaF are really the same problems people have with powerleveling services or buying characters off of ebay.If you use the RaF, you can end up with multiple level 60s with no flight paths, no primary or secondary skills and probably not many weapon skills. The game centers on raising all kinds of skills and reputations as you go - yet outleveling those skills basically means you will have a level 60 character in level-only but none of the other skills that make your character viable. Will people go back for them? I wouldn't.

Those are the problems you have with Ebay characters? That's possibly the only thing I have heard against them other than people not knowing how to play the character.

I am unable to think of a single Azeroth reputation that matters once you hit Outlands, with the exception of your faction's races if you want to get one of their mounts. It is not uncommon for players going through traditional leveling to reach their level cap without a full arsenal of weapon skills, and it's a frequent practice to wait until hitting the level cap before beginning to work on any professions. The vast majority of Azeroth flight paths also become irrelevant once you go through the Dark Portal, and if missing some really becomes an issue, it's a one-time trip to fix that right up.I'm in agreement with the majority here. The game is teeming with players who level to the cap before fully learning how to play their classes, with plenty who never manage to learn them afterward, either. This is not a result of accelerated leveling speed, it's the result of a leveling system that is not very difficult and has no experience penalties for playing badly along the way.
