They mentioned leveling to 50 would be approx. 50-60% faster, I hope they mean that the new level 50 will be 50-60% faster than the current level 50 and not just 50-60% faster than the current level 120...that pace along with the new system of expansion leveling will make leveling alts actually enjoyable again!
Looks very promising
I wonder if we'll be able to select the 'classic' kalimdor/eastern kingdoms as well as the 'new' post-cataclysm versions.
Love leveling changes good work.
This is really nice for a good change of pace.
While level squish and leveling looks good, I still don't know what's with old raids soloing.My character at level 80 can easily solo any classic raid, but after squish the same character will have ~33lvl and will be in the middle of leveling. Also what about legacy loot? Currently you have to have 12 levels more than raid to get legacy loot, in BfA it works up to wod, while legion raids are soloable but doesn't give more loot. Does it mean all raids except current expansion will be legacy and will give legacy loot and will be soloable at 50-60lvl? And the last question what with heirlooms, basic version works only in classic, so up to 60lvl. After changes they will work up to ~25lvl or they will work only in Classic zones but till 60lvl?
I think the choice to have new players do BfA as their 10-50 is a good one, because it offers the most story continuity.
Hardmode BC leveling here I come.
Allied Races starting at 10 makes sense. But I don't really get why DHs and DKs are dropped to 1.That said, the optional leveling path is very cool overall, we can finally experience the old world in a flexible way (not just through arbitrary level-gated scaling brackets and not just through level-syncing another player). I just hope this won't affect the running of old content, and that the player scaling won't be too screwed up. Fingers crossed...
Ill actually level an allied race now
If as a veteran player, you can choose to start at the original DK/DH starting experience...I wonder if this means you can choose to start at level 58/98 too?
Will be fun for new guys leveling bfa till 50....
Yea this is screaming a step by step world revamp
Honestly i am quite hyped for ShadowlandsThe fact that they are putting effort into making it noob-friendly is fantastic, but I will miss the starting zones for sure.
And when we get info about under level 120 characters level squish? I want to know IN TIME which level need i target with my alt army BEFORE the patch goes live. :D
Loving the way the intro zone looks. Pretty amazing
This gives me more of an incentive to level my alts. I'm excited!
I can't wait for these changes; it's definitely welcome in my book.
This is such a massive change! Although I do like being able to pick out the bits I prefer from each expansion when levelling an alt, it all seems like a good idea so far.
