Old World Level Scaling Starting with 7.3.5!

Recommended Posts

As everyone hoped and prayed, we are getting Legion-style level scaling for old world content! What does this mean exactly? Well, old zones will have a scaling range, so you won't be seeing Tirisfal at level 120, but it might scale all the way to level 60. It was important to keep some zones looking dangerous and not having Tirisfal be the same as the Plaguelands for example. In addition to this, Outland and Northrend will both go from 60-80, so you can choose which expansion you want when leveling new characters, like some of the new Allied races that start at level 20!

And the best part is, it's coming before the next expansion! 7.3.5 will have the beginnings of many of the improvements listed above, so we don't really know when exactly the full thing will be here.

This is a huge move to make the leveling experience better and make WoW more long-lasting, as we also heard word that we'll be getting even more Allied Races in the future, meaning even more leveling!

And don't forget to check out the main "What's Next" panel coverage for more info coming from BlizzCon.

I hope we get more character slots for these new allied races, I don't want to have to delete any of my characters even if I'll end up replacing it with a cooler race.

did they mention anything about the release date ?

Yes, with 7.3.5 comes the old zone scaling, if you meant the xpac as a whole then not yet.

Looks like @Blainie and me will be eating our words and @Stan be correct. I didn't expect them to overhaul all the old content (at least until and including wotlk) to work with zone scaling already in just 1 xpac's time.

 

Mad props, only happy because this was really needed. Not having to grind Utgarde Keep from 68-76 or so is really welcome. Only have 2 classes left that I haven't leveled to 110 but hey, it's the thought that counts!

"Applies to dungeons and rewards"

What does this mean for rewards exactly?

Presumably that the loot will scale with your level to the max they are set to. So for example Deadmines loot would scale to approx lvl 60, BC/Wotlk will scale to 80 and so on. If you do Hellfire ramparts at lvl 62 you get 62 loot if you do it at lvl 80 you get lvl 80 loot.

Thank you! So all dungeon boss gear will be like holiday boss gear now, sounds good IMO.

One good thing about this is that it will allow players to "finish" zones...no more doing 5-6 quests then feel like you have to leave a zone to level efficiently. Even with the cataclysm a lot of story is present in old zones that gets...left out of the leveling process.  Like most players don't realize there is a Murloc invasion going on in Elwyn because by the time you get to those quests your level 15 or so and belong in Redhills.

Don't forget dungeon queues to help you out of those zones as well.

      It seems some server issues have returned as US players have been reporting renewed trouble with loading screens and world server down errors. EU maintenance is currently also in effect, but apparently US servers are also having issues.

      We just wanted to point it out in case some players were worried that it was just them: if you're playing on EU servers, maintenance started about 50 minutes ago at 3:00 AM CET and is scheduled to end at 4:00 AM, and if you're playing on US servers, you're not alone - many have reported problems in the past 30 minutes or so, after a pretty clean day of regular play.
      stuck in loading screen, anyone else? World server down AGAIN?? Area 52 is dead again World Server is Down error Load screen stops at fully loaded Transfer aborted: instance not found loop Connection Issue World servers are going down everywhere, here comes blizzard with the “it’s the hackers fault”

      Blizzard have posted the known issues list today and updated it just now with some mining issues, so let's take a look! 
      Known Issues (Source)
      Classes
      Demon Hunter
      Shattered Restoration does not increase the healing of Soul Fragments from Shattered Souls, and does not update the tooltip values of Shattered Souls. Infernal Armor thorns damage tooltip value does not update with second rank with talent point unallocated. Vengeance Fodder to the Flame Condemned Demon does not die with one Throw Glaive. Druid
      Feral Freedom of the Herd (PvP) tooltip mentions incorrect cooldown reduction. Evoker
      Casting an empower spell when the Thundering affix buffs are applied causes the cast bar to desync. Hunter
      Call of the Wild summoned pets temporarily prevent the use of Mend Pet. Serrated Shots does not increase damage from Hit the Mark. Animal Companion reduces the damage done by Call of the Wild. Wind Arrow is doubly affected by Mastery: Sniper Training. Sentinel Owl highlight will display as a loot beam animation if Outline Mode is disabled. Quick Shot will not proc if your weapon is transmogrified to a different weapon type. Paladin
      Protection Shining Light secondary proc does not appear on Personal Resource UI. Rogue
      Dungeon and Raid enemies are immune to Distract. Shaman
      Lightning, Earth, and Water Shields’ auras disappear upon entering an instance or logging out. Dragonriding
      Renewed Proto-Drake and Highland Drake UI will break when previewing other drakes with the Storm-Eater and Crimson Gladiator Skin on. Dungeons and Raids
      Ruby Life Pools Kyrakka has no aggro table until it has fully landed at 50% health. If Kyrakka is defeated before Erkhart, the Flaming Embers pools of area denial do not harm players. Scholomance Warriors’ Charge ability can cause a disconnect or death. Temple of the Jade Serpent Warriors’ Charge ability can cause a disconnect or death. Items
      Kharnalex, The First Light displays ‘Adventurer’ as an eligible class. Player Characters
      The Leather Renown transmog set is available to everyone. Pandaren may display pink, un-textured hair in the transmog window for backpacks. There are unobtainable appearances in two Dracthyr Battlegear transmog Sets, preventing completion of the sets. Player versus Player
      Players are unable to earn Vicious Saddles during Dragonflight Season 1. Enigma Crucible and Empyrean Domain are unavailable. Nokhudon Proving Grounds Ground-targeted abilities (such as Ring of Frost or Rain of Fire) that are cast on the ramps located in the arena can be difficult to see. Professions
      Crafting Orders that have expired or are canceled will display an ‘Order Complete!’ text at the top right of the window despite the order not being fulfilled. Mining The Titan-Touched sub-path for the Master of the Elements Specialization tree is incorrectly showing the description for the 40 point capper as the unlock point capper and vice versa. The intended effect is that unlocking Titan Touched provides a short term player buff when you mine the node, and the Titan-Touched 40 point capper unlocks the ability to return to portals created by Overloading Titan-Touched nodes. Quests
      On “The Other Side”, one character opening the vault does so for other characters. In the Darkshore Warfront, Maiev Shadowsong will reset after casting “Mass Vengeance”. In the Destruction Warlock Mage Tower, Jormog the Behemoth and its abilities are invisible, and Tugar Bloodtotem can appear to be a female human. Ohn’ahrahn Plains Initiate Zorig does not appear for turn in of “Desecrator Annihilator” or “Reagents of De-Necromancy”. On “Maruukai”, carts are sinking into ground on the uneven terrain. On “Proto Problems”, Hypoxicron is landing mid-air. Ronsak the Decimator does not create a bonus objective/quest. Scaleseeker Mezeri does not create a bonus quest. Eaglemaster Niraak does not create a bonus quest. Windseeker Avash does not create a bonus quest. “The Nokhud Offensive: Founders Keepers” is missing quest loot. Thaldraszus On “The Once and Future Team”, abandoning the Quest after defeating the Colossal Causality changes the number of the Timewalker Wardens that approach. On “Banquet Battle” interacting with tables causes unexpected camera behavior. Resetting the “Ancient Protector” Bonus Objective encounter will cause the Ancient Protector to be untargetable. The Forbidden Reach “Final Order” displays empty quest text at turn-in while in-progress. User Interface
      On the character select screen, characters cannot be moved via drag-and-drop. The UI can only display four rewards for Major Factions - Renown Rewards. Press-and-Hold can have a casting delay compared to repeatedly pressing the key. In Ohn’ahran Plains, area texts on the Map are in incorrect locations. Map and minimap icons may disappear while in Valdrakken. For those just returning or who otherwise need to be caught up we have guides for both new and returning players.
      As with any update, it is important to make sure that if you use addons that they have been updated.

      According to player reports, the Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder is still required to fly in Kul Tiras and Zandalar on live servers.
      Battle for Azeroth is two expansions old with the launch of Dragonflight and when Shadowlands was released, Blizzard made Warlords of Draenor flying available to everyone with the Pathfinder still rewarding the mount.
      However, now that Dragonflight is live, this does not seem to be the case.
      The achievement still requires BfA flyting and the  Wonderwing 2.0 mount.

      Blizzard has posted an update on the Dragonflight performance issues, clarifying that operations and server engineering teams have been working around the clock to fix them since the expansion launched.
      (Source)
      Since the launch of Dragon Isles content, our live operations and server engineering teams have been working non-stop to address several unexpected performance issues. Some of these were fixed with realm restarts that took place earlier today in all regions, and other performance issues are still being worked on.
      This is a top priority, and we expect to deploy additional fixes over the next day.
      Thank you for your patience.
