the problem isnt that it takes too long to get caught up its the fact there are way too many AAs to begin with. Completely gut the AA system and redo it. AAs have gotten so bloated with each new expansion its time to do this. Just cut them in half. We dont need 50 ranks of stuff. Cut them in half and make people earn them. That way people wont need 4000 AAs just to be viable. You would only need 500 or so.
