I've always hated running Scholo. I think the overall concept and design of it is great, and the bosses are well-tuned, but the trash is a total pain in the ass. At 60, running Scholo was always a pain in the ass, and nowadays (unless you're doing your epic mount quest) you're unlikely to bother with it past level 57 since doing virtually *anything* in Outland is a better time investment. So as it stands now it's pretty much there just for epic mount quests.My suggestion would be to lower the level of all the mobs in there by 3 or 4 levels (to make it more compelling to players who are not high enough to quest in outland yet), remove about 25-30% of the trash and change the larger packs so that only one or two mobs in the pack are elite. I'd also change the mobs that fear or emit poison clouds (either reduce durations/damage or just remove those mechanics) I know this sounds like it would make Scholo totally different and *much* easier...but Scholo is no longer endgame content. It hasn't been for quite some time. There is no need for it to come with such a large time investment and learning curve (Yes learning curve. To first time levelers Scholo would seem pretty difficult imo.) Who wants to struggle through repeated wipes in long instances when leveling? -Apparently no one. For example, if you stand outside the Gnomer instance you might not come accross another player for several hours or longer. /end rant
