I personally have 21 toons and the free one will get me 22. Won't even have a use for the store 90s.
They nerfed the amount of xp required to level 70-80 by a fuckton in the 4.3 dragonsoul patch. and 60 to 70 long before that, not to mention he probably had no guildperks or heirlooms. Don't compare his experience to yours. We don't know when he leveled
Is the song "Desperado"? Cuz I love that song.

Levelling 1-90 at any accelerated rate is going to be a less full experience than doing it the slow way; but people don't want to wait 2-3 weeks (conservative estimate) for their friends to get involved.
While Diogenes was relaxing in the sunlight in the morning, Alexander, thrilled to meet the famous philosopher, asked if there was any favour he might do for him. Diogenes replied, "Yes, stand out of my sunlight".

The drama/whining about this feature is pretty silly. The people who can't justify it just shouldn't use it and it has very little impact on them. Whether you level from 1 or just do 90-100 it's more than adequate time to learn how to play a class. It's a good feature for some people, it's not a feature to be used by others. It's also good for the game because it helps new players to overcome the single largest hurdle in every single MMO since the first one: Leveling.
