In the same way, though, I was bored as hell by hitting level 80 at the start of Wrath, because I'd barely replaced ANY gear - and I hadn't even gotten any drops from the Sunwell. Wrath is coming to an end, and so will the massive gear inflation. It was a mistake in the first place, and this is the only way to make sure everyone's on an equal footing. Those people that wipe on Marrowgar? They'll still be wiping in Blackwing Descent and the Bastion of Twilight, while you take down Cho'gall on hard mode. What does it matter if you're in the same gear while levelling? A good player will level faster.The one thing I'm concerned about is threat in Cataclysm. In Wrath, DPS players (myself included; my main's a Mage, and I have two tank alts) have become used to starting with their most powerful nukes and cooldowns at the very beginning of a fight. It's going to take a lot of aggravation and explaining, and not a few deaths, to make some of the DPSers understand that they have to, effectively, "Wait for Sunders" again.
