@Fables429 Yeah, I know feeding trolls is bad, but: I have a feeling a lot of people would quit the game. I probably would, since I find end game raiding, and ESPECIALLY Arenas to be painful, tedious, and utterly non-challenging. Sure to be AWESOME in Arenas might be tough, but generally it is a game of classes of the month, general competence, and a heavy dose of randomness. Raiding is a game of competence, reading a FAQ online, and listening to a 14 year old five you directions, while trying to fool yourself that this is serious business. Everytime I get a toon to the cap, I grind some heroics, get somewhat geared, the roll a level 1 alt, and start leveling again. My last toon was somewhat better, since I could do BGs for decent gear, I actually enjoy BGs, except for Horde AV. I also enjoy leveling. I started playing WoW because I was a fan of Blizzard, and the amount of work they put into details and backstory, not because I wanted a bigger epeen, or to be able to call myself "hardcore" (if I ever claim that, without irony quotes, please shoot me). A note on compitence, and a lesson learned from DKs, the only way to become a good player is to level a player. You learn what gear sucks, what tactics are dumb, and you learn how to use skills in an ordered progression, and not all at once (which is somewhat overwhelming). I reccomend you roll a lowbie, get to Outland, and take some weekend Ramps or BF pugs if you doubt this. DKs at that time are among the worst players you will ever see. This isn't because all of them are immature idiots, but because they don't know their class. Yes, there is exceptions to that rule, and those exceptions are the ones who grow up to be good tanks at lv80, and perhaps even non-group-wiping DPS, if their lucky. The majority though are complete crap who cannot ever GEAR their toons properly, much less hold aggro. (I'm rolling on this lv58 green plate with spellpower!)
