Feb 17th 2010 12:10PM I would disagree Ferocity being a mandatory telent. Haven't specced into it since ICC was released and haven't had any problems with rage so far. It can get a bit troublesome at some points in heroic 5 mans, yes, but in raids - Ferocity is as crappy as Omen of Clarity. If you're a real ragebear nor you need Ferocity, nor OoC.
Then again - for bear cubs it might be good to spec into this and not Feral Aggression.
Feb 6th 2010 9:39AM Didn't read all the comment but here are my 2 cents for the discussion.
I do agree some classes are dead boring till level 20, BUT allowing players to create a character and starting it at level 20 would be an overkill in my opinion. Exactlt these 20 boring starting levels is the time where you understand wether or not you'll dedicate your time for this character. Will you get over those 20 terrible levels or you'll just log off and delete the char. I created a rogue, played till level 15 and uderstood it wasn't for me. Created a priest, got to 20, got my Mind Flay and i was so happy about it.
The idea of making an alt character your main's apprentice seems like an interesting idea though. How I see it would look something like this: make your alt apprentice to one of your level 80 characters (but only one at a time) and for every mob killed or quest completed at level 80 your alt would receive say 10% of the theoretically possible experience points. While your alt is at low level these 10% would be huge boost, but as you level higher the experience gain from being an apprentice would diminish more and more and when your alt is around 78 the 10% of main's XP is as good as nothing thus forcing u to actually play your alt and level it the traditional way.
With such a system I see a huge speed boost to the lower level boring leveling, without making it the way how to level to 80. Think my idea of the apprentice programm is pretty solid. /nod
