There were such options before 7.3.5 when Blizzard decided to took them away to please that minority that want slow leveling.
Options i'm talking about are:
- RAF with 300% bonus, which also allowed you to get free mount rewards
- heirlooms that actually had a power over other items you can get at your level (i've spent tons of gold on them not to see them nerfed to uselessness)...
- XP flasks that they removed
- dungeon boosting your low level chars with high level char.
All that is gone now.
Op top of removal leveling options they also significantly increased (in many cases doubled) XP needed to each level, that wasn't even needed.
They also buffed mobs health significantly in the process, that also resulted major increase in time to level.
With 8.0.1 they buffed mobs health once more, making leveling completely impossible.
To sum it up, leveling now is at least 300% slower than it was pre 7.3.5, without any compensation to veteran players from Blizzard
(proposed changes were meant for new players, but also affecting veterans for no good reason).
Todays 14% decrease in XP required is nothing compared to all increases they did with 7.3.5 and 8.0.1 directly or indirectly (through mob health)...
It should have been at least 50% decrease to make leveling bearable at current state (or they could leave it as is and double heirlooms XP bonus instead).
This is why i'm so unhappy. Blizzard is doing really poor job with all those leveling changes and removal of leveling options.
