Leveling is a sound way for most people to learn their class. I believe that it could be done well without leveling, but WoW is complicated. Before I get the flood of "rofl, wow is EZ mode lololol!!!1" let me explain. WoW actually has a ton of stuff to learn. Mana, rage, energy, cooldowns, attributes, statistics, equations, DOTs, HOTs, direct damage, melee, ranged, pets, items, trinkets... and the list goes on. There are so many aspects about this game that go into understanding how classes work together.For most people, they 'learn' their class by having people tell them what stats to gear for, which abilities to use when, and what talents to choose. This process takes time actually playing the game to learn. If you don't believe me, look at all the information online that is false because it became outdated with a patch during BC, but that people still are holding to. The truth is that the game is more math and logic than many people can handle. For sure getting used to a class takes more than a few hours of practice to play well, and I am constantly refining my skill at whichever class I happen to be playing. I think that a DK should be able to learn their class by the time they hit 80, but have you played AV at level 60 since DKs came out? The number one ingredient in that recipe is noobsauce. More than anything else though, having a toon reach level 80 shows a certain level of commitment to that character that helps either train or weed out less skilled players. I enjoy grouping at 60+ more than I do grouping at level 16 for deadmines.
