Good! If you do any dungeon running at all as you level, you are completely screwed if you want to do the quests out in the world. I know with my druid, I've done a couple zones just to get them through, but it's disheartening when the rewards for a quest are completely out of line for the level you are. One of the points of the old world revamp was to get you to do it again on a new character, to experience the changes that were made. When you completely outlevel a zone you're questing, the impact (and relative difficulty) trivializes the whole experience. For instance, Saggoth in Darkshore loses a lot of impact as far as how the experience goes if you can just three shot him because you're a half dozen levels above him.
Not an improvement for my play style... I wish I knew what dungeons you all were doing saying you get 2+ levels in one run... I have gone up one level in a dungeon at the most... never two... This makes me pretty sad as I REALLY enjoyed the low level dungeon experience, so I preferred doing them at times over questing. Now it sounds like I would get sick of dungeons if I tried to level on them... oh well... Only have one character on my main server that is in this level range now anyway... And I'm doing recruit-a-friend on my new server so I probably wouldn't be doing many dungeons on them from 1-60 either.
It's only the DUNGEON QUESTS that are being reduced in xp. The dungeons themselves aren't, nor are quests in general. You can only do the quests once per dungeon anyway. The sky is not falling, Chicken Little. Quitcherbichen.
Good that they turned it down, just fun doing the quests and it gives it alittle more life to the dungeons. imho i would do those quests even tho they didn't reward any xp. :pCould understand how importaint instance leveling if for some (hint: get some heirloms and faceroll till u get bored then), cmon.. the game was based on leveling through quests in zones and instances were mostly for equipment back int the days. -- no offence ;)

I wish they reduced the amount of XP you get from quests at low levels too. I am currently about 5 levels too high for the areas I do and I haven't been to any dungeons yet. Yes, I do use heirlooms, but the 20% XP bonus they give can't be the reason of this, can it?That's the reason. Zone quest flow and experience gains are balanced around not using heirlooms. Heirlooms are there to make your leveling go faster, not to make your leveling speed "correct".I myself am kinda glad for the change. I took my blood elf warrior through Tirisfal and Silverpine without heirlooms. By the time I'd finished the questline, the quest to go to Hillsbrad was already green, but I decided to go into Shadowfang Keep anyways to finish off the last bit of the Silverpine story. Came out and I was ready for Arathi Highlands :( Still stuck with Hillsbrad though, some good quests there.
20% is more than people think...
You poeple are all mad! This is horrible! I am so sick of questing I can't see straight. This was such a nice alternitive.I love people’s mentality. Force people to play the way I like! Yeah! Good for you blizzard for taking another leveling option away. I am sure it is still decent XP from mobs. I am still going to level my alts on rest XP and dungeons. It is much more fun than go here, get 10 of these, and come back. Now go back to where you just came from and get 5 of these. Come back... A-g-g-g-g-g..Nosaji... It was never meant to be another way of leveling. It was meant to be something to explore and to learn more about the lore by clearing the stuff that is just to strong and awesome for your regular quest lines. The fact that you had to find (its queueing now ofc) 4 other ppl to do this is a way to show this. It's meant to add some extra flavour. I don't know if you have experience with the quests now, but it's a lot more fun than before! ;)
Although Im enjoying the new content and lore, I have 2 toons leveling differently. 1. I have a huntard doing quests to learn the new lore, 3 pieces of herloom shoulder chest and trink. I have been doing all quests, even the ones past the zone achievement. usualy about 1 level every hour without rested, Im giving him a break at the moment because I have quested myself out. 2 my rogue shares the same gear as my huntard and he is Leveling through instances. once you do the quest(s) in the instances thats it they are done and cannot be repeated in other words 1 and done. My rogue has been gaining levels about every half hr I enjoy this because I already have quite a few 80's that I raid and pvp with and can honestly say I dont like questing since I had to do this with my origanal 3 80's. I say if your going to nerf the xp from the instance quests make them repeatable.
I say if your going to nerf the xp from the instance quests make them repeatable.Yeah no. There's a difference between instances quests and the instances themselves.Also, Blizz wants you to see their beautiful new world they made just for us. Get off the dungeons and go outside.
If your decked out in full heirlooms, take them off and do the dungeons.
If your decked out in full heirlooms, take them off and do the dungeons.But then you're either using spare gear in your bag, or not using gear in those slots at all. And in either case, why use heirlooms at all then?
I'll reserve my final opinion until after the 7th.When I was in the process of leveling my Priest (after playing 6 some-odd years), I was *sick* of doing the same quests over and over, so I leveled her almost strictly through the dungeon finder. With the rework of the quests and new races, I'm actually looking forward to experiencing the new changes in Azeroth.
Yeah... I ran SM Armory on my Paladin today. She went in level 33 and came out level 36. That is WAY overkill especially considering she had no heirlooms on (even though she did have full rested EXP... still...)
I like the idea, for now.I, like many here have numerous alts, the later ones have all been leveled via the over generous amounts of XP given in dungeons.There are only so many times one can face Stranglethorn Vale, etc.. so, the chance to effectively warp past certain zones, to me is very attractive the 8th time round.I have to say currently I am totally in love with the game again, and enjoying leveling immensely.The zones feel more or less right, and in all honesty I don't feel compelled to run a dungeon, because I am more or less progressing the storyline zone by zone, and skipping 2 levels would just put me too far ahead.
Just ran through Shadowfang Keep and went from 19-21. On one hand, I really enjoyed that as a break from questing, on the other hand, I just outleveled N.Barrens and I just barely got started in it, when people have been talking about how much that area's improved. And now I gotta go back in there again to get my Sunwalker weapon. Hopefully it'll last me quite a while because outlevelling a weapon I just worked hard to make would suck. I also have to go in there and create my Wildhammer weapon too. >.<
You poeple are all mad! This is horrible! I am so sick of questing I can't see straight. This was such a nice alternitive.Your sick of questing when the whole world has been changed and tons of other quests have been added? Stop QQing plz.
I agree with this change because on all of my leveling characters, I'd only do dungeons if I had at least one quest for it that I got while leveling in a zone. To my dismay however, after completing the dungeon and turning in the quests, I'd be way past the level of my previously acquired quests.
I will agree with the level 15-30 dungeons but after that a hole instance will maybe give you 1 level with quests included and thats a big if.
