Having leveled multiple characters through the old content, I am of the opinion that the changes to the old world can't come soon enough. I am ready to say goodbye and good riddance to this old world. Sure, some of the zones aren't too bad, but I am still looking forward to Cataclysm eagerly.

Nevertheless, WoW's old world is an expansive area. Going through it the first time was incredible, albeit incredibly slow considering you don't know the tricks you did before.I'm more excited for the fact that Blizzard's finally understanding that they have an entire world they could use for expansion content, not just add another continent every single time they wanted something big. Hell, the very fact that you'll be able to fly in the old world come Cataclysm will make it a very huge change. There's so much potential now for some great storytelling.

I cannot agree more: The areas being most heavily revamped seem to be the areas that need it the most.My wife just said to me about a month ago, hitting 60 for the first time, "Leveling is so much more fun in Outland." This was followed the other day after dinging 70 with, "Northrend is SO much more fun than Outland!"

There's a lot of nostalgy in those old zones, and as one who only recently began playing again after having done pretty much just classic and only a sniff of TBC and seen even less of WotLK first hand those classic areas still hold a lot of fond memories to me.However, many of the areas changing heavily also deserve it does WoW wish to stand time. Next to the nostalgy factor there's simply many zones I'm rushing through again now simply because they're filled with boring fedex quests and the general design is plain and dull.That's not something Blizzard will be wanting for their game, instead these lower zones should perhaps be even more exciting than the later zones as these are the areas after all in which new people shall get hooked.I'm definitely looking forward to see to what extent all of the content will have changed. Looking forward eagerly here as well :).

Amen to that. I'm currently leveling my Druid in Duskwood, and the quest designed there is so non-intuitive - three or four quests there requires you to kill the same mobs near the graveyard, but at different interval! It's so annoying to have to ride back and forth between the zone.
