Personally, I wonder why Blizzard insists on making us start characters from level one for all classes but DKs. There is no reason why you shouldn't be able to start a paladin, hunter, whatever, at level 55 after you've already leveled a character to 80. And before anyone says something about 'learning your class,' I learned nothing about playing my classes until I started doing content that required more than facerolling through mobs for X kills, Y items or Z reason. There are no real mechanics, outside of instances and world bosses, that requires any sort of skill whatsoever to handle. And level 55 is arbitrary, at that. If they bumped it to 58, or even 65, so you could just skip old Azeroth, I wouldn't shed a tear - old world quests are possibly some of the worst-designed, worst-implemented ones I've had the misfortune to encounter. I would say, though, that it should be an option - some people do actually enjoy leveling, and there are always twinks to consider. But for those of us who want to avoid wasting 7-8 days of game time getting from 1 to 80...please let us start characters out at higher levels.

"There is no reason why you shouldn't be able to start a paladin, hunter, whatever, at level 55"Yes there is. It makes you play longer. Thus, making more money to Blizzard.Lets say you make 4 alts. Level each one in 2 weeks to 60 or more. 4 times 2 is = gamecard. If they would let you start at 60 all the time they would lose your gamecard money. Now why would they do that, eh? Blizzard is not charity company.

Not really, because I'd still be raiding and doing heroics to gear my characters up. It just becomes aggravating to have to endure 7-8 game-days of wasted time getting to the point where I can actually start enjoying the game.
