Let me guess OP, you play pvp only right?
The majority of players say the same thing about pvp. Why does Blizz waste valuable resources on a sub genre of the real game.
Well go play a game that isn't MMO
Shall I be dramatic and say "You haven't heard the last of me,"?

After years of playing wow and doing all raids and pvp, I can say leveling is most interesting thing in game. Ofc, not with same race/class again.
Leveling means having no downtime and thats what makes it interesing. Playing at max level means lot of downtime/afking, while waiting for raid, lfr, whatever. While leveling, we can take different paths, skip quest or do them all, we have a choice. At max level we dont have a choice, its either dailies, lfr queue or achivs every day the same thing.
I would even sign a petition for Blizz to postpone raids for a month since launch, in order to make people see the world they created. Just like they gated gear and parts of raids.
Lol this is the base of an MMO you dont want in an MMO.... I like to progress my character in the world and I do that by questing and leveling.
its only a grind if it isnt fun. fun content at 91 and fun content at 100 is exactly the same. the issue is in the past the max level content always trumped the leveling quests and areas (though i would say MOP's zones were pretty enjoyable). so if they apply the changes they are talking about to leveling content it wont feel grindy
Blizzard said in Q&A that they wanted leveling experience to be different, to be a fast romp throughout the zones. It might be just as long as before or even faster, even if it's 10 levels.
And TBH, lvl100 looks cooler than lvl95
So wait a second, i for one love leveling the first 2-3 times because of the lore you get to experience. Are you saying i won't finish a zone or will they be scaled to get us every level. I mean i want to experience ALL 10 levels IN all the zones. I don't want to burn past a few zones and outlevel them.

My bet is that the people here who say that leveling is a waste of time wouldn't even have the slightest of problem if they played with a pixel cube holding a pixel sword attacking a pixel in a white room. No items, just pixels that when you mouseover you see the stats.

Dunno if you know this but we had to get 10 levels in BC and LK and both times it was shorter than the 5 levels in Cata and MoP.
PS: A LOT of terrible players exist at max level and they DO need to practice learning how to play a lot more, but that's regardless of how long it takes to level. It will be shorter, don't fret.
I was almost willing to give OP the benefit of the doubt, until I saw his follow-up post.
How is this thread not locked yet?
Now at lvl 100 in WoD all I get is that lame GW2 Ripoff bullshit where I have to mindlessly wander hoping I can find an event, and GET TO IT before it despawns (I'm in a really crowded server, rare mobs in the timeless isle tend to last a whooping 5 seconds. If its at 3 am during a workday like wednesday, they last 10 seconds from spawn to death)
its because of whiners that other people can't have nice things. Next thing we know, next expansion wont have any plot, or quests, you just buy it, get instant level-cap and start grinding dungeons.
