I know people love getting XP from battlegrounds, and leveling up in BG's seems to be very viable these days. However, can we please have an 80-only bracket for AV? With all the low level toons running around, it's like walking into a daycare with a loaded shotgun.

You know, that sounds amazingly fun.

Absolutely agree, the gear/level disparity makes it so that you only have say 5 guys who just can't be killed by the rest of the raid put together. Just as its not fun for 80s to see level 71s being worthless (which isn't always true), it's not fun for 71s to try and take on 80s. However remember that if your raid group is full of leveling toons, then you can count on the other side having the same issue. So the levelers can kill each other while the BG pros do there stuff.

Simple answer:No.Whether it was level 51's trying to get their trinket and get themselves a little XP or 69's trying to grind out a ton of honor wo they could have a full season 2 set when they hit 70, the top of the game has always had to deal with the shallower end of the level pool in Alterac.Other BGs: x0-x9Alterac Vally :x1-x0

AV is actually active right now with the lowbies filling out the battles. For a long time in early 2009, AV was dead on the Ruin battlegroup for Horde. I'd queue at peak hours and end up in groups of 25-30 vs 40 Alliance. Now I know that I can play an AV whenever I want.However, it seems that the number of cave dwellers has increased with the implementation of XP gain in the battlegrounds. Implementing the additional XP gain with heirloom gear, I fear, will only increase the number of AFKavers.
