I feel like some people are trying to weasel their way into calling this optional purchase (which is free with every WoD key) P2W just so they can have the joy of QQing about it. Get. A. Life.
People calling this P2W seem to not be familiar with the dreadful thing "P2W" actually is, reaching max lvl for a fee is pretty much "Congratulations, you've purchased your way through the tutorial, now enjoy being bashed on for being a p2w noob" on the extreme side ofc. However if they do let people skip ahead in the current expansions like 1-3 weeks into WoD then I could see this becoming an issue for people and I'm pretty sure blizz wouldn't do that now would they?
P2W in it's true form at this stage would be, during MoP, earn yourself a lvl 100 with the first all purple WoD raiding gear with weapons and such. You then paid, to get an unfair advantage over everyone else that only players with money to spend can achieve, whilst getting max lvl at this stage really isn't. It's more of "Pay to catch up" so you can prepare for WoD.

Who cares? Every person who mattered in WoW have all jumped ship. Only casuals and fanboys left, they're just adapting the game to the audience.

There are lots of threads about this with lots of opinions both good and bad, pro and con, thoughtful and not-so-much. The main point is there are lots of threads about this so I'll be closing this one. Post in one of the others and thanks.
