If they really wanted new players to want to play they wouldn't make it so complicated. If they're going to focus on end game only and make leveling meaningless then you should be able to buy WoD ONLY and level from 90-100. Why should I pay for past expansions if Blizz is going to leave it unbalanced and make it trivial?
I am happy as well. I personally have HATED leveling since i started playing, leveling my main is necessary, but i still hate it. Buying the level 90 boost will definitely be used by me. The one problem i can foresee with this feature is a shitstorm of people who have no clue what they are doing. I suppose they will have WoD quests to help them learn their class but yeah, i see some problems with that part of it.
I use a SoR on an unused account of mine to boost a warlock to 80, i leveled to 85 and i sucked, really badly. I would assume that a newer player might feel even more overwhelmed.
I sort of enjoy leveling characters, but people new to the game have to think: "Why am I doing this anyway?"
It's definitely not 24 hours from 1-90, that's a load of crap. Unless you have someone else power leveling you, in which case you can double the time to level since you're using up another person's time.
While leveling takes no time at all now, I really can't stand it.
Love alts, hate leveling. Bring on the free 90!
Also maybe even the paid 90 if it isn't more than 20 dollars.
So now with heirlooms and purchasable 90s, can we make leveling normal again for people that want to do it? Kind of annoying out-leveling a zone shortly after you start it when you're not even using heirlooms.
The "we don't think this is good for the game" ship sailed away a long while back, so there's really no reason to not implement it.

Everyone has to clean the sand down there and just be adult about it. Don't like it? Write them a stern letter. I heard they get a kick out of that.
