I think you have to acknowledge the fact that Blizzard is constantly releasing "expansions".Patch 2.3 brought a whole new Instance to the game, as will 2.4. These aren't "major" changes I grant you, but they still add content.I for one would like to see things scaled a bit differently, to acknowledge the new XP/Leveling system, as well as Outland loot. Scholomance and Stratholme are kick butt instances, but does anyone who isn't a Paladin or Warlock even run them anymore? I rolled a toon right before 2.3, and before I knew it, I was in Outland, having completely skipped over everything in the Searing Gorge and Burning Steppes.So much Azerothian content is being skipped over or is useless, because everyone is in such a hurry to get to Outland. Who cares about Elemental Fire or Water anymore, when it's all about Primal Fire and Primal Water. Arcanite only matters to a very select few, as does Enchanted Thorium, because now it's about Felsteel and Primal Mights. Argent Dawn? I want Cenarion Rep!The biggest mistake that Blizzard made was putting a defining line between Outland and Azeroth. BS recipes in Outland don't need Thorium, Mithril or Truesilver anymore, hence no such veins in OL, and hence, no need for any of those metals once you hit 58. Leatherworkers no longer need Rugged Leather since Knothide is where it's at. Once you hit a certain level, you only ever return to Azeroth to train, hit the AH, or farm low level mats for gold or to craft stuff for other toons.I'm just hoping they don't make the same mistake with WoTLK, thereby giving people no reason to return to Outland once they hit LV 71.
