I don't yet have the xpac (I know, but its on its way). My main has some T4 and T5 pieces, which I'm aware that I won't replace for some time. But I also have a 61 lock working his way through the Death Knight nightmare that is Hellfire Peninsula right now, and upon reaching 68, i'll take him straight to Northrend. An epic is an epic for a reason, even if you don't replace it for 10 levels. I didn't start playing until after BC was released, so when I went to Outlands, I replaced pretty much everything immediately. I only have one 70, so the other 9 toons I have coming up will have a much better time replacing items in Northrend that people that did serious raiding in BC.

I leveled a prot pally up right before Wotlk, hitting 70 on my first UK run. I can tell you that the quest and drop upgrades are on the same curve as the outlands are. That means that you won't be doing the vanilla->outlands jump where every item for your spec is an upgrade from what you have, instead quest greens may not be better than instance blues and you'll still vender a lot. As before, though, every few levels you'll rotate in new items with slightly better stats. I like this curve better than the "new expansion, all new items" curve of TBC for alt leveling - it just feels better paced.
