The 2.3.0 patch notes have gone up for the test realm and there’s some doozies in there. Of particular note:
Experience: The amount of experience needed to gain a level has been decreased between levels 20 and 60. In addition, the amount of experience granted by quests has been increased between levels 30 and 60.
All old world dungeons have had their loot revisited. Players will now find that all loot dropped inside instances will be of Superior quality.
Elite mobs outside of pre-Burning Crusade dungeons have been changed to non-elite.
The level ranges of pre-Burning Crusade dungeons have been adjusted to a narrower range.
Level 1-60 dungeon quests have had their experience and faction rewards increased.
Many elite creatures and quests in the level 1-60 experience have been changed to accommodate solo play.
- Many new quests have been added to the zone.
- The Steamwheedle Cartel have just completed building the new town of Mudsprocket in south west Dustwallow Marsh.
It looks like they’re gearing up to make it easier for folks to get to the 60+ content in time for them to grind to level 70 for the beginning of the new expansion, and also answering people’s complaints about alt leveling. So, how long until the first, “I made 60 when it meant something” elitism posts start?
