JeffLeBowski over at Sportsbard brought up a very interesting topic: Do we need more levels? In other words, does the next expansion need to raise the maximum and provide a high-end leveling experience?
Though he brings up some excellent points in his post, my answer to the question is a resounding yes. I enjoy leveling. Yes, leveling through the same content over and over can be a bore, but the first time or two leveling through new content is a real joy to me. And I know I'm not alone.
Not everyone eschews the journey. Not everyone rushes to the end to get to the "good stuff." Some of us think the good stuff is the leveling -- at least some of it. I enjoy the Silverpine Forest experience every time I go through it. The same with Hillsbrad Foothills. Sholazar Basin and Mt. Hyjal are two other favorites, as is the Valley of the Four Winds. I'm an altoholic and that's partially because of the leveling experience.
