"I'm still convinced that we need Heroic versions of classic instances like Deadmines and Wailing Caverns"I would love to do some of the older instances in heroic 70 mode. Not Wailing Caverns, but Deadmines, Stockades, and others would be really cool.

I agree that there should be at least some effort put into making the alt grind more exciting and interesting for people. It doesn't have to be loads, most people have high level characters and the endgame is a massive part of WoW. However, it makes sense to keep all levels of the game interesting. I dont want Azeroth to become like the starting continents of Everquest did, with huge empty zones where you were lucky to see another player at all, because everyone was over in Kunark, Velious or on Luclin. This is presumably something Blizzard recognises too, for instance their decision to keep Auction Houses out of Outland so that people had to return to their native cities.This can be done in a number of ways. I think heroic or new expanded versions of low level dungeons would be awesome. Another way is to continue to revamp or open up new zones occsionally as was done with Dustwallow Marsh. I'd love to see Gilneas opened up to become a 30-40 zone, or perhaps for a new series of questlines introduced to the Barrens that detail the environmental changes that should be happening there as a result of the actions of your first toon.It doesn't have to be much, as the majority of players are (I believe) are involed in the endgame. But some additions and reworking would certainly go a long way!

Total side topic, but that just proced a question in my head.Heroic means "upgrade the dungeon to be top-level difficulty" right now... but what happens in WotLK when the top level goes up 10 levels? Will the current heroics stay the same, tuned for 70s, or will they suddenly be tuned for 80s?Just to tie this back into the question at hand - if heroics are, like the instances they modify, tuned to a specific, static level, then we have to ask what level the heroic Deadmines should be tuned to. To 70? Then we'll complain at 80 that we have no reason to run either version of Deadmines because they're both too easy...
