"[Yearning for 1.x] is like old people saying all that 'Eh, in my times...’Funny thing, though, I can't say I've ever heard anybody in-game refer to 1.x as the good ol' days. That only seems to happen on WI or in the Forums. Every time I've discussed the matter with somebody in-game, or overheard another conversation, it's a relatively new player wishing he/she could have seen the AQ world event or run pre-80 raids at the appropriate level with a real group of geared players.Then a veteran interjects to say that 1.x got boring pretty quickly after hitting the level cap, and that the level 70 endgame was SO much better than at level 60. Whether 80 > 70 is hotly argued, but it's pretty clear that for almost everybody, 70 > 60. I, for one, am glad that I can actually get into instances with a Fury Warrior or a Shadow Priest if that's how I like to play.One thing that I would like to see return is attunement. Even if it's like Karazhan is these days, where only one person needs the key to get in, storming a necropolis should be harder than just walking in through the front door. What's the point of running Heroics if you can get into Naxx10 and down a few bosses mere hours after hitting 80?Back to the article:I am a little disappointed to hear a blue actually say that level 60 content doesn't matter; I realize they have expansions to sell, and that mid-game content usually gets passed by anyway (Been to Uldaman lately? Neither have I.) However, unless/until Blizzard wants to REQUIRE the expansion packs for all players, they should accept that certain players will want to stop at 60 or 70, and devote a small portion of their time to maintaining the experience for those players.
