On GamesCom, Tom Chilton has claimed that Blizzard plans to have Outland and Northrend go from Level 60 to Level 80. Will you vote for or against it? If it comes true, what changes will be brought in World of Warcraft?
Leveling experience is the trigger of change on Outland and Northrend
Many players came up with the issue of leveling experience on GamesCom. It is definitely good, but the experience requirements for Burning Crusade or Wrath of the Lich King are such that you just fly through the zones, without even finishing the quest lines and you jump to the next zone.
Outland and Northrend would go to Level 80
Players call the developers for fixing the issue of leveling experience, and Blizzard has announced that they have ideas for how to address it, but it needs a significant amount of time to do so.
They have suggested that they have had a plan to have both Outland and Northrend go from level 60 to level 80. Thus, you pick if you want to do Outland or Northrend, and each of them would go at half the speed they do now. That way, you would not run into that kind of problems and it would feel that you have more different content options for what to do. It would make leveling different characters more interesting. But it needs more time to change rewards and all kind of stuff.
Not a single way to level up
Some players worry it will be less paths to max level. From Level 1 to level 60, players have so many different zones and ways to level, but once you reach level 60, it just has a single way to max level.
In fact, to gain xp quickly, you have three different options to level through Burning Crusade or Wrath of the Lich King. Hellfire is pretty much the only must-do. After hellfire, you can hit zangar or if you did enough of hellfire or did a few dungeon runs, you will be high enough to go to terrakor, or you can go to nagrand. After doing one of those you can choose to go to bladespire or netherstorm. Only 2 or 3 zones max is required to get through outlands if you are questing. But there are 3 different options after hellfire and another 3 different options after that.
No one knows when this plan can be released, including Blizzard, but it had better out in Warlords of Draenor. Buy world of warcraft draenor gold at gold4fans to prepare for the coming expansion.
