Breakfast Topic: Those little annoyances

So like Alex, I figure I probably have a few more alts than your average player. I have 3 level 70s, 3 more characters above level 60, and a few more at various levels of play. I even started a new shaman just this past week, just because I decided I had a really cool character concept for a female Orc shaman.

Anyhow, I've been playing the shaman quite a bit, and I've actually not been twinking her at all, enjoying the challenge of starting a character from scratch and making sure I still have my mojo despite getting all fat and sassy from all that easy daily money from Sunwell Isle. WoW's done a pretty decent job of keeping the lower level game easy enough for characters, but there's a couple things I've noticed while playing that still feel like they need some work. If I could highlight one, it would be the complete lack of Shaman trainers in Lordaeron.

I've decided to level in Ghostlands, both because I love the story and quests there, and because it has much better quest rewards that you'll find in the early Barrens quests or Silverpine Forest, for the most part. However, every 2 levels, in order to train, I have to make my way back to Orgrimmar to learn my quests. Since I haven't been able to find a mage who will port me to Shattrath yet, that means I fly back to Silvermoon City, use the teleport to Undercity, wait for the Zeppelin, and ride it back to Ogrimmar. It can be pretty time consuming, and I have to wonder: Why couldn't they just stick a Shaman trainer in Silvermoon City right next to the Druid trainer? For that matter, why not put a trainer of every class in every city? Is it really worth it to punish an adventurer who decides to go level somewhere far away from their race's capital city by making them break off from their leveling to make a long pilgrimage home?

So here's my question to you this morning: What little annoyances have you found that can make the early levels tough, or even just make playing WoW tougher than it needs to be in general? What are some small simple things that could be changed to make your WoW life less annoying?
