I know you guys can read but have a hard time with comprehension so I am going to make my thesis statement very clear.
Leveling to 80 is a mistake because raiding, pvp, arena and questing are terrible at 80.
To get into a raid, which is the last thing I want to do, you have to grind heroics. I am done with the grind. Done. To get the enchants you need to raid you have to grind rep, I am done with the grind. Having done that, to get an invite you need to meet somebody elses standards of achievment. I don't answer to anyone.
WG pops every 2.5 hours. That's crazy. I know why they do it, which takes us back to grinding for raids. What a twisted web they weave. I know you could go to AB and WSG and EotS, but why? This all leads back to grinding again because you HAVE to get the PvP gear or raid gear to really pwn. So the grind is unavoidable whichever way you turn.
I know there are very talented and strong PvPers in the arena competition and I salute them!! But to get wheret hey are they had to grind, grind, grind. back in the beginning that would have been cool, because the honor was fun to get and plentiful, it wasn't a grind. Now the wg tokens get you in and a good rating moves you up. More grinding!
People quest at 80 to gain rep, gear, chants, gems and money. Let's grind some more!
Staying at 60 removes the grind, the need to depend on others and you aren't playing Blizzards game.
I had a 52 pally on the first server I ever played on. Made him in 2005 he was Alliance and on an RP server, ewwwww!
But I saved him from this living hell by making a plan. I spent a slow morning at work researching and made a seven step plan that turned him into a level 60 AV machine. In two days it was done. He was level 60 with top gear and the only people involved were me and the people I hired to run me through Hellfire 10 times, Blood Furnace once, and kill one 63 Elite quest boss.
Now I have a toon that pvps non stop, has made friends from all over the battle group, and who is respected and consulted for gearing questions.
No grinding, no heroics, no punk ass raid leaders, no rep, no tokens, just continous pvp in a fun slot with cool people.
No more grinding!
