I feel bad for any new player. Unless you have a friend willing to do recruit a friend and play with you the entire way to 60 then help you get to 80 the mountain of leveling is just too much.

Yeah. It can take awhile, but not everyone is in a rush to get to 80. If they are new players, then everything is new to them. They don't need to worry about Northrend or even Outland.

Nah, it's not that hard now. I'm leveling an alt all the way through 70 (it's 40 right now), and it's a pretty swift ride. The major problem is that it does feel VERY lonely as there's still many players striving for 80 with their mains. You also don't get to do almost any instance. That, I think, is the true worst part of being a newbie nowadays.

@AzharielLeveling an alt is pretty easy the problem is for new players. No money and no idea what your doing plus 80 levels to get to play with other people for the most part. Most people solo level alts so a new player isn't going to do any instances of find hardly anyone to play with for the better part of six months if they are lucky.On another note blizz needs to consider the /level command from DAoC. If you have a full level characterthen you can /level all your other characters to say 65-70.You can argue that they need those levels to learn how to play their character but in my opinion no one learns how to play until they group with others especially healers and tanks which the game drastically needs.

I'm having no problems on my server finding groups for instances. There are a lot of people exploring older content.

I agree with you 100%. I think that by the time the next expansion comes out you will see duel classing as well as duel specs. It simply has to be that way and can't be avoided. Players are no longer going to want to spend months grinding just to get a new toon to level 90. I think WoW has made a major blunder (though a typical one) by focusing all its energy on creating higher level content rather than giving experienced players new lower level content and new ways to interact with with that content.

Eh, I wouldn't say so. I've had two friends join WoW in the past six months and they've actually enjoyed the levelling process.The different between a new player and us levelling alts, imo, is that for us, we're just trying to get to 80 and get on with it, but lower level players are actually just having FUN. It's the first time. It's new. It's different.
