This is honestly a better way to do it than I could have hoped, with the minimum level so that you cant just go to "high-level" zones right away.

That's interesting, but ultimately quite strange for someone like me who's always enjoyed engaging into world pvp while leveling. This'll certainly make leveling require less traveling around and quest hunting, thought it could be argued this is also a pretty big thematic downside. In the end, Blizzard isn't really interested in building an epic legacy anymore; everything feels more and more streamlined.

Does it mean new players won't know full story of wow? And they just spend more time in one zone which may gets boring? And oh lol from vanilla to wotlk or from northrend into pandaria it looks like a joke.. less adventures less fun.. GJ blizzard

Do you think current new players really get the full story of WoW right now lol

(If they get bored staying in one zone, this doesn't prevent them from heading to a different one, also.)

Your post shows so much disconnect towards the current state of the game tbh.

Also: in the same paragraph, you raise "not getting to see the full story of WoW" as a negative, but you also raise "staying in the whole zone" (which lets you see the whole story of the zone) as a negative, presuming that it is boring. Hmm...

Well.. now with heirlooms you outgear and outlevel a zone pretty quickly and you really don't know what is really happening in that zone, raising level cap to 60 is the better way to prevent outgeared and outleveled player within low level zones, since the gear from both quest reward and dungeon scales with our level

Couldnt agree more, I miss some of the quest achievements for zones for my loremaster cause i outlvl them. I'm sick of lvling through outland for example, about 20 max character lvls kill the fun of some zones. I couldnt imagine the scaling to be better, I'm definitely skipping outland and pandaria with the new allied races i will lvl :)))

Zone Quest achievements are also being changed. Instead of needing X amount of quests, you need to complete the main storyline in the zone.

Hmm, then we need lowlevel alts for XMog farming?

You'll still be able to go there with max level characters and lay waste to everything.

It's more that certain transmog appearance sets only drop from mobs within a certain level range.  Though what I imagine will happen is that the drops will simply be tied to specific mobs instead of level-ranges of mobs.

I guess this is alright. It worked for legion because it was just ten levels. But I guess it's a moot point for me, I only level up through dungeon queues.

Dungeons scale now too. So it'll be the same speed or if anything, I think from the experience squish, questing will now be faster!

This is a great idea.  Previously, between resting and heirlooms, you'd see maybe 2 zones per expansion.  3 at "best" if you like content.  So due to the entry requirements to open up the area and quests, you'd see the same couple zones over and over contributing -- IMO -- a huge portion of the boredom of leveling a new toon.  And, if you decided to do some dungeons to add variety, you'd be dumped back into areas with too-low level content thereby exacerbating the problem.

That said, leveling in dungeon finder is way more fun that world quests, but it's not always as active as one would like.

I've levelled a couple toons through dungeon finder and I'm over it now haha. 

There is definitely something to be said for just being able to shut off your brain and run around a zone doing quests.

Aren't there PVP changes coming too? Will I no longer be insta-ganked every time I go near Redridge Mountains?

      Blizzard have detailed changes coming to Enhancement Shaman's Windfury totem with the next Beta build.
      Enhancement (Source)
      Hi Enhancement Shaman,
      A change is coming next week to how Windfury Totem works. These changes have no impact on the Windfury Weapon imbue, nothing is changing with how that works.
      For some quick context, in Shadowlands, Windfury Totem can only activate from main-hand auto-attacks, and causes a main-hand auto-attack swing when it activates.
      The next build you receive should have Windfury Totem changed to work this way:
      Main-hand auto attack interaction is unchanged, except for the miss note below. Off-hand attacks can proc an off-hand Windfury attack. This is an actual real “auto attack”, which means things like Flametongue Weapon, or whatever other effects may activate from off-hand attacks, can now potentially happen from this bonus attack. Windfury Totem extra attacks can no longer miss. This has very little impact on 2h users, as an Arms Warrior or Retribution Paladin almost never see a miss in their combat log, however dual-wield users have a high miss chance. In Shadowlands, this miss chance both applies to the chance to get the Windfury Totem’s extra attack, and the extra attack itself can then miss. Targets can still dodge or parry these attacks, they are just no longer able to miss. Bonus bug fix: Enhancement Shaman who are under the effects of Ascendance can now benefit from Windfury Totem if they are auto-attacking from outside of melee range range with Windlash. We will be monitoring any unintended side effects from this change, but this should help make Windfury Totem more valuable to more specs within the game.

      Blizzard have detailed all the Season 1 Dragonflight tier set bonuses, the various ways players can acquire them and more! We hear about the reasoning behind the designs (which will be more simplistic than the 9.2 sets), their impact on talent tree choices, the Inspiration Catalyst and more, so let's take a look.
      Class Tier Set Bonuses (Source)
      We’re excited to share the bonuses you’ll discover on Class Sets in Dragonflight. To add to the excitement, these bonuses will be playable in the next beta build!
      Dragonflight Class Set Armor Design
      We set a few goals for this round of Class Sets. First and foremost, these Class Set bonuses are not as complex as the effects on 9.2 Class Sets. The new talent trees have resulted in a lot of changes to classes in Dragonflight, and we want you all to be able to play those classes without Class Sets that significantly change your rotations or resource economies. This is not to say that we won’t make more complex or rotationally impactful Class Sets in the future. But you’ll find that these bonuses generally take a light touch on features like resource generation and cooldown manipulation.
      Another goal that came from wanting you all to have a chance to get familiar with Dragonflight’s new classes is that we want these Class Sets to have minimal impact on your talent choices. We want you to be able to play the way you choose in whatever content you prefer. As a result, they generally modify core class abilities or talents that are learned near the top of the tree. They may have synergies with talents further down the tree, but they shouldn’t make you feel like specific builds or capstone talents are “required.”
      Acquiring Set Armor in Dragonflight
      When Sets returned as a major endgame feature in 9.2, we debuted the Creation Catalyst as a tool for players to access and complete their sets, with the following goals:
      Players of all types should have access to powerful bonuses and fun appearances even if raiding is not their preferred method of engagement.
      New and returning players “catching up” should not have a monumental task to become ready to fight alongside friends.
      WoW can confidently carry the system forward as an evergreen feature for players to learn and understand intuitively.
      We think those goals were met. And while there’s room for improvement (both in understanding the means by which charges accrue, as well tuning prohibitive currency costs for alts), we’re happy to say that the Catalyst (which will be known as the Inspiration Catalyst in Dragonflight, and just the ‘Catalyst’ moving forward) will return to the Isles as a companion system to Class Sets for the foreseeable future.
      We’ll have more details to share on everything Catalyst-related in a future update, but for now it’s worth mentioning that we’re planning on keeping the unlock cadence the same to start – that is to say, the 6th week after the Mythic Raid becomes available in Dragonflight Season 1.
      Playing with These Bonuses and Providing Feedback
      To try these set bonuses in the Beta, log into an endgame realm and look for Setzertauren near the current PvP and professions vendors in Orgrimmar and Stormwind City. Please share bugs you find via the in-game bug reporting tool and your feedback about the bonuses in this thread.

      Blizzard have added more changes to Balance Druids after yesterday's raid testing, with ability redesigns, tuning and more.
      Balance (Source)
      Greetings, Balance Druids.
      After reviewing the performance of Balance Druids during yesterday’s raid testing, we developed a number of changes we’re implementing for today’s raid testing. If you encounter issues with your Talent Tree, please relog. Here are the changes:
      Lunar Shrapnel has been redesigned:
      Starfall’s stars have a chance to deal an additional 25% damage to nearby enemies when they damage an enemy afflicted by Moonfire. Deals reduced damage beyond 8 targets. Sundered Firmament’s Astral Power generation now correctly grants 25% of Fury of Elune’s Astral Power generation.
      Stellar Flare no longer generates Astral Power when granted by Stellar Inspiration.
      The chance for Shooting Stars to occur has been reduced.
      Wild Mushrooms no longer have nameplates and are now untargetable.
      Furor has been redesigned:
      Protector of the Pack [Feral/Balance/Guardian] - Store 10% of your damage, up to a specific amount. Your next Regrowth consumes all stored damage to increase its healing.
      Protector of the Pack [Restoration] - Store 10% of your effective healing, up to a specific amount. Your next Regrowth consumes all stored healing to increase its healing.
      Note: The tooltip of Protector of the Pack will appear broken in-game. We hope to have this fixed soon.
      Our main goal with these changes is to rein in the amount of Astral Power that Balance Druids are generating passively, as well as how much Astral Power is being credited to passives such as Primordial Arcanic Pulsar.
      Thank you for your continued feedback and suggestions! We’ll continue to watch class performance across the board and adjust whenever the need arises.

      Proving that the tune improves basically everything it's set to, Wild Tech has combined the latest Dragonflight trailer with the Kenny Loggins classic, and it is another triumph! We've already seen it paired with Dracthyr's Soar flying, but it also somehow almost perfectly hits the beats of the latest trailer. Let's take a look.
      So, did Blizzard actually make the trailer to fit the Danger Zone track to begin with and then overdubbed it with their own music? No, they almost certainly didn't, but it sure would be cool if they did! Also, we can't talk about trailers getting new music without this masterpiece, as mentioned by OldGromm:
