cModes going away seems like a dumb idea... just like not being able to go back in older LFRs to get the transmog gear. =\\This, I completely agree with
Challenge modes are rough but they're fun!
do you have insta flying or do you have to go buy it?
I would have loved that boost back in Cataclysm when i finally gave in and started playing. I mostly did it to spend time with my best friend and had no idea how much time i had to spend to be able to play with her. It took me more than a month to get to 85 and i wasn't geared for raiding until the last day before MoP came out... BUT! I learned my class the hard way and i am grateful that i didn't just get some boost. I can understand how other people might feel the opposite way. I'm glad they get a scenario to learn their class and i think the 483 gear is a good idea since you won't be able to go directly from level 1 to Siege of Orgrimmar. This will probably bring new life to some of my favorite raids ever such as Mogushan Vaults and Terrace of Endless Spring.
