May 27th 2009 10:31AM What I would REALLY like is an heirloom (epic-speed) mount, ridable at level 1.
The thing that drives me nuts about levelling is how I have to run by foot the first 30 levels and then with a slow mount the next 30 levels. This was all fine for my first character - slowly exploring an unknown world is fun and even useful all for your first character, but when it comes to alts - IT IS SO DAMN SLOOOOOW.
We get good heirloom gear that speeds up questing and killing mobs and the whole levelling process has been sped up - but that only means I spend relatively MORE time running, say, back and forth between Darkshire and Raven Hill Cemetary.
Also, an heirloom mount would make sense from a character perspective: Some characters are poor upstarts and have to work their way up in society. However, our alts are spoiled members of a wealthy family, hence they get good gear AND know how to friggin ride and get a pony/porche/epic mount right at graduation day.

"Your unfortunately in the minority "
Source? And even if this is correct, the minority (which I think is bigger than you think) pay their monthly fees too. Every majority consists of minorities if you break them down in details, this ignoring every minority means ignoring everyone eventually.
"I don't even raid anymore"
So, your point is that raids are better and more fun now - yet continue to confirm what the OP was saying, that many stop raiding.
