Xtian, While levelling doesn't tell you anything about hit caps, how to raid vs. tank heal, what it DOES do, and this is very important, is force you to go to trainer every 2 levels- sometimes every 4 or what have you- and learn new skills. Introducing those skills slowly and surely is vital to the making of a good member of a class- while it is possible without, all the study in the world aren't replacement for the knowledge you get of each skill as you level a toon-Unless you're just powerleveling the poor sap.I cannot emphasize enough that anecdotally, the worst raiders I've ever met are those who had either been powerleveled, were essentially bought, or whatever. A previous poster mentioned the idea of instant 80s for those who already had them and recanted it- I strongly believe that we would ALL pay the price in the skill of our fellow raiders if this were allowed. I agree with you that it's a great experience, but I contend that without the experience of leveling, there is virtually no one who would attain the same knowledge level for their class, and while it won't teach you how to manage your HoTs when raid healing, or how to manage DoT application, it will make you intimately familiar with your toolbox for such things, so that, when the time comes, your not dealing with "How the heck does Ecplise work?" AND trying to find out what +hit is and why you should need it.Learning how to play the game is certainly elementary preparation for Icecrown, as is learning to play the game from a new alt's perspective. Just because it isn't a college class doesn't mean the knowledge isn't important.
