They've drastically changed the way low level mana works - much for the better too.
Now, instead of poor lowbies having to fill their bags with shed loads of water, with Mages drinking after every mob like they used to, mana regen OOC is much higher, but it gets gradually lower and lower. Once you are in your 30s you will find you start needing abit of water, and higher still you will find it has gone back to normal.
Essentially they realised that levelling mages was annoying, due to needing to drink after killing every mob - in 5 mans it was a nigthmare, as the rest of the group would just carry on mauling enemies while the poor mages / priests were sitting around filling their mana bars up again.
Water is still neded later on, it is just not essential like it was before.
Also, levelling isn't hard, and it never has been really. Challenge in the game comes, as Zaev said, from endgame PvE (heroics and raids) and PvP
