I wish that with the option to turn off exp completely, Blizz would also enable people to toggle the leveling speed back to what it used to be. Leveling's always been the main attraction in the game to me and the current speed-leveling (in empty zones as well because everyone's speed leveling) is rather meh.

Well, some of your problems can be solved.XP gain can be turned off altogether for 10g in 3.2, while if you want to level slower, don't buy a mount until 40 or just hoof it until then. Just because the level is lower doesn't mean you need to stick with it.I'm thinking about turning off a warrior of mine at 60 so he can go chill in sweet 60 epics and ruin the DKs in AV.

The mount thing, while a bit of a meh as well, isn't really that big of a deal compared to the superfast leveling these days. Which I can easily understand and accept that most people like but which I personally don't prefer. And turning off XP gain completely is really rather different from just having the old xp gain speed.

I would also recommend considering the "Ambassador" title achievement, which requires that you visit all the racial zones from 1-10 and 10-20, as well as a couple of 20-30 zones. In this way you are gaining rep instead of XP, but you are still "leveling", and can even add the Rep as a bar above your XP bar.You can quest in the old world to your heart's content!However, I loved the earlier suggestion to implement a "leveling server" which is game-wide, so that you would have all alts level up on a particular server with everyone else's alts, and then provide free transfers off for when you're done. Awesomesauce.

The mention of the run from Darnass to Stormwind brings back memories. When I started playing my first toon was a Nightelf. I didnt know much about the game and got into it after seeing my brother playing it shortly after release. After getting to Darkshore I and hitting 14 I thought I was the s*#t. A level 40 came along and was selling runs to Ironforge for 50 silver per person. I took his offer and off we went. I was absolutely floored at the changes in scenery and the size of the world. It had such an impact that when I hit 40 i went to Darkshore and did free runs to IF. In those days darkshore was filled wit people whos highest level toons were in the teens. General chat in Darkshore was as active as trade chat with people selling, buying and LFG etc. Good times. Its like looking back on the teen years of your life for us older players. You thought you knew everything. Now you realize you knew nothing. Good times.

Prolly one of my favorite things about Guild Wars that WoW doesn't have is the option to make a PvP-only character at the level cap, and the GW cap can be hit in 1-2days lol.
