Upcoming WoW Changes

The World of Warcraft Website now has new patch notes from a version 4.3 update that's now live on the Public Test Realm for Blizzard's MMORPG. The notes are quite extensive, offering details on new raids, Transmogrification, Void Storage, Reforging, and more. They also say "The amount of experience needed to gain levels 71 through 80 has been reduced by approximately 33%." Thanks Ant. There's also a separate new article on planned valor changes.

Northrend is the real killer for one glaring reason and that is the fact that, for whatever reason, they decided to only allow level 80s to get quests in the new zones whereas in previous expansions you could go in two levels below the previous cap.

Now, two levels isn't that much and you still have access to Cata items prior to hitting Cata content but it makes a huge difference that Northrend is the biggest stone wall in the game when it comes to grinding. It's slow, it's boring, and some of us have seen it so many times that it makes leveling an alt a matter of whether or not you want to regrind that dump.

Thankfully, if you ever manage to rope a friend in to WoW, you can make use of the triple XP and grant-a-level all the way up to 80 now which trivializes everything up to that point which is likely the next best thing to launch you right in to Cataclysm. Unfortunately, you would not be doing your friend a favor by recruiting them in to the game.
