    Blizzard Alters Experience Gains For Levels 1-85


    This isn't very surprising, but Blizzard wants you to move on to new expansions when you reach a certain level. And today Nethaera revealed a fairly significant alteration to the way players gain experience, based on your level and the content you're doing at the time.

    This only affects NPCs that you kill; quest experience rewards will remain the same. Essentially, once you reach the maximum level for an expansion, all of the creatures involved in that expansion will only reward 10% of their normal experience values. So, at level 60 you'll need to move on to Burning Crusade content, level 70 for Wrath, and level 80 for Cataclysm.


    Examples:

    Level 60 or higher players get 10% normal experience for killing creatures in Azeroth (“Old world” content)
    Level 70 or higher players get 10% of normal experience for killing Burning Crusade creatures.
    Level 80 or higher players get 10% of normal experience for killing Lich King creatures.
    Level 85 or higher players get 10% of normal experience for killing Cataclysm creatures.
    It sounds like this is in response to players grinding out additional levels in the older areas -- for one reason or another -- instead of moving on. Nethaera mentions the "ease" of content being a major factor in players sticking around after they've outgrown a zone. But then again, they're also missing out on a ton of great upgrades from quest rewards -- especially new characters -- so it's not exactly advantageous to keep grinding away in old areas anyway.

    The change is a strange one, but maybe I'm just missing something that happened recently to bring it about.

    I think you need to re-read if you think its cool. This is a nerf if anything.

    This is a nerf. It is definitely NOT cool.
    And how would this affect -60? This is only for L60's, 70's, 80's and 85's. The rest don't have to worry.

    I think the intent is to avoid folk doing the usual expansion trick, and having a full quest log of high-exp quests ready to hand in the moment the new stuff hit, so they're instantly into the first level - or at least, very close to it - of the expansion. Unfair head start type stuff. Still don't get why they'd do it, though.

    I guess this could help but it will be annoying.
