Okay, all you guys that are whining that it is hard to do the early Cata quests in Wrath gear need to knock it off. If all you are going to do is put on your superman cape and blast through content it's really not very fun and frankly makes as much sense has buying a game for $50 then using cheat codes so you can beat it on the first weekend. The quests should be suitably hard that they challenge you to learn the mechanics of the character but not to where you can't beat them. It's okay to die or to run away a lot while you are leveling. That's part of the learning experience.Going into Cata I had 3 toons in Wrath quest blues or some purples. These characters were easy to level and frankly a bit boring. Since then I've started 6 more toons, 3 of which are at 85. I never twink them with cash or gear and I never buy gear while leveling. I also don't use heirloom gear. They all have top end flying they paid for themselves and I'm working on getting them into epics. The point is I'm enjoying the game as I level each character and haven't needed anything except what's already in the game and obtainable through questing to do so.

I think it's really great that you enjoy the challenge of leveling and the huge adjustment in difficulty from wrath to cata. Its obvious that others see it as a shock when you come from BC through wrath just nuking everything in your path then you are limited to pulling 1 or 2 at a time in cataclysm. Whether you think the challenge is warranted or not, some people see the transition as unusually difficult. The last toon I leveled was a pally BS so I made all the starter gear with no issue. However, the furthest he had gone questing was sholazar then dinged 80 and headed into hyjal. The gear gap was tremendous! If it weren't for BS I would have died repeatedly on the opening quests. It may not be necessary but it will certainly be helpful.
