Maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had, and what you've learned from them, and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.
In todays times, People are obsessed with the end of days, Claiming that these are the darkest of times. It's only when you open a History book do we realize we have no right to - Scott J Keill.

I would like if you can buy it ingame (at the heirloom vendors) for let's say 1000 Gold when you already have a level 90 character. or something along those lines....not that new players just buy that stuff and don't even complete quests anymore and learn to play the game.
I would have done that 2 expansions ago. Nothing wrong with it.
its also only usable at 85 so its pretty much just an extra boost to get to end game
When it comes to expectations for raiding guilds, they expect players to speed level there characters to max level ASAP. They need them at max level and fully geared for there raid setup, and don't want to waste time with them leveling, so players are pressured into doing this.
Guild leaders will expect players to buy this if its for real money, to power level though asap.
And if this is the case, the devs know this, and make use of it. So, its not a simple case of 'don't buy it if you don't like it', its a case of guild masters saying 'you will buy this and power lv or else!'.
Tell me again why its not ethical?
I'm sorry. I know I'm coming off as abrasive. I just really, really wish people would have higher demands from developers and publishers - I think the game industry (and the MMO industry in particular) would be far healthier if we as players stopped throwing money at everything and were more discerning and demanding.
It's amazing to me how people can see slippery slopes everywhere and still function. It must be a very scary world for you.
But look at how soon we're all forgotten. The abyss of endless time that swallows it all. The emptiness of those applauding hands.
