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.

      DesMephisto is back (or, more accurately, he never left, as he constantly strives to improve his leveling speeds), and he's gotten his speed record for 10-50 Shadowlands leveling significantly down from his last attempt! 3 hours and 56 minutes (or 3 h 37 min, if you remove the "screwing around" parts) is all it took to get to the equivalent of today's level 120, using Chromie time in Warlords of Draenor, beating the previous best we reported by over an hour and a half.

      Now, it's important to mention that Blizzard have stated in interviews that the current XP rates and leveling speeds on Alpha aren't final and are very rough at the moment, but it's till great to see players going for these speed records nonetheless.
      And here's the last minute or so of the leveling process, and you can check out the whole thing below as well:


      You can also check out our recent interview with the man himself, where he goes into all the many recent achievements he's had, from the 46 max level warriors, to the speed leveling, Autism charity, Guinness World Record and more.

      Method ran Ny'alotha on Heroic difficulty with a raid comprised of 29 Mages and one Demon Hunter, and while they downed all the bosses including N'Zoth, the clear highlight is Dresta'gath that has been defeated in just 22 seconds.
      You can watch the Pyroblast shower and Dresta'gath's decreasing health bar in the following video:

      3D Artist Dronmo has created a jungle in Unreal Engine 4 inspired by Stranglethorn Vale.
      Here's a comparison of the Stranglethorn Vale in World of Warcraft and the recreated version of the zone in Unreal Engine 4 taken from ArtStation.

      Here's another comparison of the zone.

      The artist teamed up with his friend, a guitar virtuoso, who produced ambient relaxing music for the video.
