Regarding the Cataclysm levelling experience - this is probably my biggest frustration with the expansion. I -loved- the zones the first time around. Bringing up an alt for the second time through was ok - I got through it quickly because I knew what to do. Grinding a third through the same zones...was not so fun. I dread having to bring more toons through there again and will probably use mostly BGs and LFD to bypass the content...which is something I fortunately CAN do now with several patches under our belt. In 4.0, however, you had no choice about doing the 80-85 zones if you wanted to gear as Blizzard intended. Reputation vendors were piecemeal and scattered through each zone and you had to extensively quest into the area to even unlock tabards to get that reputation up sans questing. Thankfully we have more options now, but, even this late into the expansion, you need to still grind through the same stuff to unlock basic essentials, like shoulder enchants (Therazane, I'm looking at you - wait, no, strike that. Bikini...).
