Thank god. I know not many share my opinion, but I like to experience as many zones as I can before leveling up. I like the stories the quests tell, and some of the writing for the quests is absolutely stunning. This way, I can run instances that belong to certain zones and not feel pressured to abandon the quests at the end.

This. My new tauren priest positively catapulted to 45 in this past week and I've been playing for a few hours at a time. Doing dire maul once got me a level, and I got another when I turned in the five dungeon quests. Wow.

I agree. I only did 3 dungeons and had completely outleveled both Azshara and Ashenvale. Quests had gone green or grey and it ruined the feel of the zones because I was demolishing everything too easily. I am all for this change, and even suggested it on the forums a while back. BTW, that thread had 95% of people agreeing that dungeon quest experience needed to be nerfed. For once, people didn't want to rocket to the level cap. That shows that Blizz did a damned good job in re-designing Azeroth.

I think that it's awesome that so many people are keen to do as many new zones as they can! I've never seen the community so happy below 60 since a few years ago!

I'm definitely with you on this one. I actually resorted to taking off my baby druid's heirlooms because I was leveling too fast in dungeons, and even that wasn't helping slow down much. I'm pretty relieved about this hotfix.

Yes, this. I did three dungeons and gained 5 levels.

Agreed. If they'd made this change during Wrath, I'd have pitched a fit, because I'm an altaholic and god damn it, I just want to get through the stupid zones I've already seen. But now, I'll be happy to take my time. (And if I want to rush for some reason, I got myself a second account during the sale and RAF'd.)
