My 7 lvl 85s, 76, 64, 54 and many more chars seem to prove my point.

Honestly i'm the same way. I'd like to say that i hate leveling characters, doing the same quests 10,12,15 times even, but i've got 15 characters at 61 or higher with 3 85's. That record seems to condem me to say that, "meh, leveling's not that bad." Afterall, i love the LOTR movies, but i'd never watch them 15x and that takes a tenth of the time leveling a character does.

I'll say that I hate leveling.I'd like to PVP and raid on some different toons. I don't really like the fact that it takes about five day's worth of playtime every time I want to try soemthing else. Also, why make the Wrath Heirlooms cap out at 80 at all? Why does Blizzard care if I zip through Cataclysm leveling faster? I've already seen it.Here's a suggestion to fix it. Why not give everyone XP heirlooms for free once they hit max level? The heirlooms could have low to middling stats, but still contain the same XP boost- or could be equipped in the tabard and shirt slots. If players want the bonus stats, they can work for the JP or whatever to buy the nice ones.Also, these heirlooms would only stay active as long as you have a max level character. So in the next xpac, The Mists of Pandaria, or The Pillars of Storge, or The Whatevers of Someplace, they'd deactivate until players dinged max level.

I am the same too - I have all 10 classes at 85 (all but 3 were 80 pre-cata, and those three were 70+, so I missed the revamped Vanilla questing) and I must admit that I have a love-hate relationship with leveling. There were some quests which I just loved doing over and over again, and some quest lines that made me want to yack, again. Overall it was a great experience - especially learning all the mechanics of all the classes, which I tried every spec out. The introduction oh heirloom gear in Wrath was one of the best things ever for an altoholic. Now, my main contention lies with the endgame 'leveling' read: gear grind. Especially for alts with things like the Molten Front dailies. Doing them on my main (Rogue) was not so bad, got my achievements, some new gear and it was a fantastic new area!. Doing them a second time on my 'main tank' merely to get all that sweet sweet tanking gear (for a non raider) was slightly uncomfortable, doing them a 3rd and 4th time has been unbelievably painful. Being an altoholic, I am used to repetition, and in some morbid sadistic way I enjoy it, but not MF 10 times over (although it's slightly better than the Wrath jousting). And I agree with Greg, I think there should be a BoA token or something that you get at level cap that grants you +10%xp gain, and you can carry more than 1 i.e. you main gets to level cap and you get a token for +10%xp, your second alt gets level cap and gets a token, you give both tokens to your third alt for +20%xp gain all the way to your 10th alt getting 100% xp gain (plus heirloom bonuses). This could also extend into other forms of currency e.g. when you complete all the Molten Front Dailies you get a 'Bronze Mark of the World Tree' which grants 10% more marks when doing the dailies. When you get a 2nd Bronze mark you can forge them to become a 'Silver Mark of the World Tree) for a 20% increase etc.
