Sep 4th 2008 7:48PM I disagree. As a person coming back to WoW from a 6+ month break (no longer have any of my old accounts) I do not think I would have the will power to level one class back up to 60 without having the RAF xp boost, let alone 2-3 different classes.
Also, since you can only give out levels up to the referred toon's level, that lvl 59 either: quested at 3x XP to 59 or had one of his referred accounts give him levels (which is more likely i think). This means that the player already has at least 1 60 (on the referred account.)
I guess what I am trying to say is that it is not as "easy" to get a lvl 60 from giving levels, because A: you have to level at least one 60 on your referred account, and B: you are stuck at 60 on your shiny new toon with no gear. Making further progress much more difficult.
Your reasoning that servers will be full on nubs that do not know their class is not really valid, as there are countless people who fail at their class already.
Group with people you know, or if you have to PUG, don't stay in a group that is bound to fail, it's a waste of time.
