I think we're talking about different definitions of "mid-level" content in some of these discussions.With Patch 2.3, we were specifically talking about things geared toward making leveling faster and - for people with many toons - less repetitive. If you're grinding out your eighth 70, the reduced XP and new hub are excellent.But I sense that a lot of these comments come from people who aren't looking to level their umpteenth character... they're looking for more new, solo content for their non-raiding 70s.That *is* WotLK. Ten glorious levels through multiple zones, with new quest chains, new cities, etc. If you're a true casual player, I can't see the appeal of new hub in Darkshire or a new level 50 zone in Kalimdor. If you're primarily solo, as I was for the first year I played, one of the driving reasons to roll an alt (and get stuck in the same mid-level content) is the lack of solo options at 70.I realize that calling the 70-to-80 progression "midlevel" is oxymoronic, but it's sort of accurate if you consider hitting the level cap just a beginning (as most raiders do).So when we talk about midlevel content, we have to differentiate between the content that appeals to a solo player looking for new things to do and the content that appeals to hard-core players looking for faster ways to the cap.
