/yawn.... here's the thing. There will ALWAYS be calls for midlevel content. But none of the arguments really hold up - dailies are like a chore... but doing the same quests you've done on 4 other alts is fresh? Of course it isn't. So people want new quests. Mull is right (above)... and so it Tim. But, ultimately, you can't balance a multiplayer game around soloers. I'm NOT saying 'go play something else' but people who like to solo most or all of the time are DELIBERATELY choosing to not take advantage of a huge part of the game. When I levelled my 2nd 70 I did it with a group of friends... we ran most of the instances, quested solo, grouped up here and there for quests... it was MUCH more fun than levelling solo even though much of the content was the same. It was playing with friends that made it that way. If you insist on treating WOW as a solo game I think you'll always be pining after new content because, no matter how much Blizz adds, you'll do it... and then it won't be new. Finally, a note to the OP - it's offline right now, but if i remember warcraftrealms' stats correctly, the VAST majority of the playerbase is at 70. I'm not at all sure that there's really a large group of players sitting at 30-50.

I wish that were an option. I've tried to find groups to run the instances, I seriously want to, but it's like pulling teeth on my server.

Most players have a level 70 or a higher than 60 char. But they also have alts, and some are playing alts often. The requested content is meant for these type of players.Adding more stories (not just dumb quests like kill 15 belfs and demons) with new quests or continuing old ones can't hurt. WoW started to look like a game focused on raiding tbh, like an item finding game. You got gear you are an acomplished player. If you don't, you are a noob. I want more options, and ways to develop my char, like even though I don't have great gear, I could be some special craftsman, that has better cooldowns on stuff, or can craft things with less mats.

The parrent does not talk about PUGing, Ross. The idea is to get a bunch of friends (like real-life friends, or guildies or something) and decide to level a set of alts together instancing whenever all or most of you are online. This would work especially well with a bunch of friends that know each other in real life so that work schedules are synchronised and you know when to expect each other online and ready to play.
