So, once more Blizz provides a a bucket of awesome sauce with a side of 'well that sucks'.Considering about 1/2 my guild hasn't hit 60 yet, and several that have still haven't seen, much less downed, the Old Lady, I'm mixed on this.I absolutely love that Blizz is making old content relevant again. At the same time, removing content (Tier 3 Naxx, Tier 2 helm) or encounters (lvl60 Ony) borks the game for NEW players (remember, there ARE players just now starting the game, and they're paying to play just like you did) as well as makes old content inaccessible for players who haven't gotten to it yet. For those of my guild that HAVE seen Ony, it's only because we organized a lvl 60s Tour and Wipe and broadcast it for puggers. Some of these already had chars in Northrend, but never got to see Ony while leveling.

Who the hell does a 40-man raid "while levelling"? It's really not the same as Hogger or Van Cleef, these really are places that people don't go to as part of the levelling process anymore, because endgame content stops being relevant when the required level cap isn't the cap anymore.When was the last time anyone did an Outland heroic, even, while levelling?

It's not "while leveling," I've seen more than one guild level to 60 and then cut off experience in order to do classic raiding. Just because running 60 Ony won't gear you for Icecrown doesn't mean it's not relevant. And "relevance" aside, people still do it because it's fun.

Everyone in my guild. Because we like lore and enjoy experiencing content AT level. Just because you. Think the only point to the game is getting to max level as fast as possible and miss half the game content, doesn't mean others feel compelled to skip to the end too.

"I've seen more than one guild level to 60 and then cut off experience in order to do classic raiding."In the whole week since they've been able to cut off experience?

HMS Dawntreader on Silvermoon-A. We just picked up a new crewmate that's only been playing for 2 weeks. We've got several chars that are xp capped at mid 60s that are still working Azeroth end-game dungeons. (We didn't cross into Outlands in order to diminish leveling.. got to about lvl64ish when Blizz announced the XP Toggle..) We have alts we may cap at 60 for the hell of it so we can release our mains to Northrend, but that won't be till we're done with Outlands..
