I think that mentoring systems are terrible ideas. It just creates another thing for people to sell in trade chat, and it's no better than rolling an alt. You can already get triple experience with the invite-a-friend system. Do you really need more than that?The idea of a mentoring system is significantly more complicated than you are assuming. How do you handle quests? Do you let the mentor redo quests? Does he just follow the protege around and kill stuff with him? If it's the latter, it's going to be significantly less interesting than simply rolling an alt and sending it some heirlooms (which are going to be much easier to obtain in cataclysm).I think that one of the biggest problems isn't addressed in this article: How dead most of the cities are. Of course, this will be fixed with cataclysm.
