I honestly wish they would add more levels to the rested XP. 3 levels would be good. I sit on alts for a while, and especially at low levels they just burn through rested XP so quickly. I think they will need to further shrink the 1-60 grind, and the 70-80 grind. When they nerfed outlands it feels about right to me now, we're going through about 3 zones to get through it. It is unfortunate that they are totally excluding the 70 zones (netherstorm/SMV) by giving about half the XP as the early NR zones. It would be nice if they actually went back and bumped the XP of quests from 68-70 (but I won't hold my breath). I think the point is to allow more flexibility and ease of leveling. They do a good job so far, but most of us have several 80s and did pretty much all incarnations of the current zones.

They are shrinking the experience you gain again in Cataclysm. They said at blizzcon that no matter what the highest level is they have, they want the level 1 to level cap to be the same as the original 1-60. So in Cataclysm, not only will 70-80 Northrend get an exp boost but so will 1-70 as well. Which besides the obvious need to keep leveling a character fro 1-85 not take FOREVER.. it also great from a development standpoint because when they remake the entire world in Cataclysm, they will make loads of new quests but probably only the same amount, and not a ton extra like in Northrend, of course you won't know the difference because you'll be leveling faster. (if that was confusing read below)Example:Azeroth average quest amount per area: 10Outland average quest amount per area: 13Northrend average quest amount per area: 15After Cataclysm Azeroth average quest amount per area: 10Basically, I think that since its a new expansion Blizzard would greatly increase the number of quests per area, BUT because of the leveling curve they won't have to so much, so that the amount of quests will generally be the same. If it makes sense. I could be completely wrong. And those numbers are just an example btw.We need an abbreviation for Cataclysm for the love of God! CC? Cata? clysm. ism?
