I liked the easy old leveling mode better.
I personally know 5 people that tried to pick up WoW for the first time in Legion around 7.1. They got so bored with how easy and unrewarding the leveling was, they quit and went back to their other MMOs. I love the leveling rework. I also wish the dungeons were harder though, so I know I'm in the minority. I miss TBC heroics =(
"So you didn't even thought about buying a character boost for 60 euro before? Now we made sure that you will"
Why oh why does it need to be any close to slow? WoW is the endgame, why do we have to ENDURE 1-120? Why do I have to see the same goddamn outland/northrend places for the 50th time *WHILST* every trashmob is a miniboss?I get it I get it, "muh leveling experience". If that's so important, then just make it faster for the people who already have alts, no we ain't new to the game, no we don't wanna do the same stuff for the bazillionth time. It's not hard, it's boring, even more boring than vanilla leveling was.
Well, I'm glad they actually acknowledge the state of outdoor mobs in the Broken Isles at least. It's my first play through of the islands, and to weaken it to the point I can roll through without hesitations on a warrior equipped with Common gear from Stormwind is massively underwhelming.
I would much rather they work on fixing the game instead of slowing down leveling repeatedly … yeah SOME PEOPLE might like it, MOST PEOPLE do not tho … and its pretty insulting to be told repeatedly that "this is a good change" even tho 70%+ of players (that ive talked to atleast) hate this change. how SLOWING DOWN the game is good for it I will never understand ever … I just don't see the point in it at all... yeah the whole 1-100 in a few hours break that !@#$ no problem with that not being a thing but I also don't feel it should take 3 weeks to go from 1-100 either … as someone with almost 20 toons maxed it truly doesn't matter to me what low end leveling feels like b.c I don't HAVE TO DO THAT at all anymore but that doesn't change how annoying it is to constantly see complaining about how slow leveling is and how its ruined and this and that.Im at a loss on how it was even considered b.c its just a straight out insult to anyone who has leveled in the last what 6 years basically since BoA gear came out leveling has been fast … the point of the boa gear … now its TOO fast soo we gotta slow it down … but not like 20% no we slow it down to the point of taking 4x + the same amount of time it did previously … i was leveling a priest @ level 42 or 43 when the changes hit … completely abandoned OVERNIGHT due to the leveling changes … it wasn't just less xp gain... its longer casts and slower combat as well … soo not only did questing slow down but getting the quests done is slower as well … soo not only was leveling a single nerf it was double nerfed THAN 3-4 months later IT WAS NERFED AGAIN with the prepatch soo we are at 3 nerfs now to leveling … one day we might be able to level in a decent amount of time again but that will sadly not be any time soon due to the triple nerf that has now been placed upon the entire leveling system. as an average leveling player … i wouldn't say i was the fastest guy ever to level a toon but i could do it in a decent amount of time and effort … it would take me about a week on average to go from 1 to 110 … mostly due to having things to do on my main … if i went all out and tried to level something as fast as i could i might be able to complete it in 4-5 days … NOWADAYS after the triple nerf … i cant even reach level 10 in under an hour when it used to take me 20 mins to go from 1-11 … (i transferred a lot of gold around in my days on level 11's with gbanks)…. i cant even get to level 30 in 8 hours of play … how is this ok, yea slow is 1 thing but literally slogging threw levels because that's the only option doesn't feel good at all … its beyond an insult to nerf leveling to this point … but like i said earlier IT DONT MATTER TO ME ive leveled my toons … but its pretty ^&*!ty when say a new player comes to the game and it takes them a month and a half to get to max b.c they have no idea how u should level they don't have boa ( or shouldn't) your basically asking someone to quit their job to be able to level a toon in ur game IN ANY SORT OF REASONABLE TIME if u work u might as well turn this game down right away because u wont even reach the end of leveling before u quit the game.... i know because i had friends IRL who were working on leveling toons before the 7.3.5 nerf … just that nerf caused them to quit the game due to not being able to reach the end of the game now imagine those same people logging on today they wouldnt just quit the game they would uninstall it as quickly as they could because they cant kill anything in any reasonable amount of time … no boa no nothing its like a 2-3 min fight with every single mob in the game even with boa it can be 2 mins long to kill select mobs … they hated it and left because the nerf happened … they loved the game and enjoyed leveling before the patch but afterwards it basically made them quit the game … all they had was boosted toons and wanted to level one themselves and they couldn't even do that soo they gave up … as i assume a lot more people will be doing … just giving up on this game because its becoming a lost cause. EDIT: upon reading some comments people are suggesting a way to basically toggle a fast xp gain system … id be ok with this … but only if u have 5+ toons maxed already … not something u can just turn on on ur 1st toon and max out instantly or whatever …
I literally have not heard anyone say "I love the new leveling experience 7.3.5 gave us."
Wait... so rather than fixing Draenor they're going to break legion so that it's more consistant? Why?
If there are people who enjoy a slow leveling experience, then they can just not equip heirlooms and have it be slow that way. Don't nerf what is essentially a massive chore for those of us who want to get it over with as quickly as possible :/
