Expand the previous expansion.

18 May

Blizzard can blow open some bottlenecks in their old content.

The wife and I are leveling through the Outlands now.  We’ll be leaving as soon as we both hit level 68.

I plotted out a course for our two couples.  Honorus and Effilda turned north and reached level 68 in Netherstorm.

Cenotaph and Ombria turned south and hope to reach level 68 in Shadowmoon Valley.

But, for both locations, ALL quests begin at level 67.  We’ll be there for 1 level and then blow those pop stands.

Blizzard could “open up” their previous expansion with one easy, easy change:

Lower the “level requirement” for all Outlands quests by 2 levels.

That would recognize players starting at 58 and leaving at 68.

I’d prefer to see more of Shadowmoon Valley, rather than spin wheels in ridiculously easy Terrokar Forest and the Bonewastes.  So start the quests 2 levels sooner at Level 65.  We’ll survive.  If we don’t, we can backtrack some.  Our choice.

It is recognized that certain things were created with the point of keeping max level characters occupied.  In previous max level areas that ship’s long sailed.

    I recently started focusing on my Druid. He only hit 70 the week after WotLK (I spent 10 days healing all the DK groups through Outland instanecs). So here he was – level 70 and had only quested in HFP, Zang, and Terrokar. I COULD have gone on to Northrend, but I have become addicted to insta-flight form. Northrend = no flying… Outland = lost of flying.

    So I stayed in Outland. I did all the quests I could in Nagrand, Netherstorm, and Shadowmoon Valley. Note that I didn’t bother choosing Scryer / Aldor – caused me to miss quite a few quests in SMV and Netherstorm. Even still – by the time I left Netherstorm I was just-under-75.

    So I was able to skip the Tundra, Fjord, and Dragonblight (I’ve already done each of these zones twice) and go straight to Grizzly Hills. I hit 76 there and then 77 in Zul’drak – meaning I can fly again. :)
