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.

      This is a classic in the making. Aside from just going over all the major events/expansions, the video delves deep into the nuances of Horde-Allaince relations throughout the years, portraying the ups and downs of the faction conflict almost perfectly. I can't say enough good things about the in-depth and thoughtful portrayal of WoW's history and Blizzard's thoroughly consistent writing throughout. Enjoy:

      Despite being mid-attack for Horde, the Heroic Darkshore Warfront opened on European realms with the start of Season 4 which was not intended, but Blizzard decided to carry on with it in the region instead of disabling it.
      Blizzard (Source)
      The Heroic Darkshore Warfront opened on European realms with the start of Season 4, despite it being mid-attack for Horde. This was not intended, but we think it's best to carry on with it in that region, since it has now been underway for several hours. Initially, the plan was to enable Heroic Darkshore the next time a certain faction would attack the zone in a given region in Season 4.
      Blizzard (Source)
      The option to queue for Heroic Battle of Darkshore will become available when the next time a certain faction commences an assault on Darkshore in a given region. Regions that are already partway through a Battle of Darkshore attack cycle will be able to access Heroic difficulty the next time Darkshore comes under attack in Season 4. Heroic Darkshore Warfront offers item level 460 loot and you will be able to buy the Sandy Nightsaber with Service Medals once you complete it.

      Since the introduction of the new Auction House in Patch 8.3, we've seen bugs pertaining to delayed Auction House mail. Blizzard posted an update on the matter and it turns out the issue is fixed on Americas realms with the same fix coming to European realms in approximately three hours.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’ve received confirmation that all of the AH mail that was delayed is now delivered and available on Americas realms.
      The same fix for European realms will take place in about 3 hours.

      Rajani Warserpent is a new mount sold by the Rajani Quartermaster for 1 Pristine Cloud Serpent Scale. Up until now, we didn't know where the scale drops from, but it turns out it's from a Rare Elite called Rei Lun that spawns during Warring Clans Assault on the Vale of Eternal Blossoms.
      The Warring Clans will be assaulting the Vale for the next 2 days and 13 hours on US realms, so make sure to follow these steps to get your Rajani Warserpent:
      1. First, go to Vale of Eternal Blossoms and find the entrance to Guo-Lai Halls (22, 24).

      2. Go straight down the hallway until you come across Mogu traps, pass them, go down the stairs and you will find Rei Lun, the Chalcedony Construct who has a chance to drop Pristine Cloud Serpent Scale. The Rare Elite is located at 22, 12.

      3. You don't need to wait for the mob to spawn on your server. Simply, use the Premade Group Finder to search for "Rei Lun" groups, join them, kill the Rare Elite and leave the group.

      As with most Rare Elites, you get one attempt per day on a single character to get Pristine Cloud Serpent Scale that can be exchanged for Rajani Warserpent in Mistfall Village. We tried server hopping and killed Rei Lun for two hours straight, but didn't see the scale drop.
