I am envious of those who have completed class quests and it makes me sad that the few that are around are barely whispers of the old ones "go to ______ dungeon and gather ________ and I will make you _________" isn't really a quest. I remember doing the pally ones that had me all over the place and helpful guildies that went into the dungeons with me to collect everything I needed even though that was still a shadow of it's former glory. And of course having to ride everywhere on my war horse - no such thing as flying back in the days with 12 feet of snow and uphill both ways...I also think it's time that blizzard figure out the way to teach people how to play their class. The difference between a bad player and an average player shouldn't be that the average player took the time to go read Elitist Jerks or some other blog about how to play their class. I even think a training instance in each major capital, something that you can go into and it will be tuned to your level that would let you teach, mess up and even get close to dying sort of like dueling. Even just more training dummies tuned to lower levels would help, when your trying to check your damage and you keep getting 'miss' it's not very helpful.

"I also think it's time that blizzard figure out the way to teach people how to play their class."Yes. And - I know people's first impulse when they see a comment like this is OH MERCY HANDHOLDING!!!!!!!oneonezors!1! but it's not necessarily so.Roll a DK, go to Acherus, watch Amal'thazad and his students. Read the dialogue. He actually has some solid advice for Frosties in his little comments.This is not handholding. This is (a) RP-friendly teaching and (b) un-intrusive teaching. Class quests used to do this. I remember seeing my dear friend do his Blood Knight training back pre-Cata, seeing him res Stillblade, then much much later waiting outside Strat for him to foooosh Alonsus Chapel because if I went in I'd die but I wanted to be around at least in spirit.You learned by doing. This is what class quests were for.And, Blizzard, only a few people seeing class quests piqued curiosity in other players and GAVE THEM A REASON TO ROLL ALTS.Can we think a sec instead of just doing whatever loloz (looking at you, tomfool who okayed that execrable Sylavanas story that breaks lore and character *farts in your general vicinity* *yes, Geshtar is twelve*)? Seriously. Dismantle the buildingwide beer bong. ;)
