Darkwalker,Redoing the old world could only have been done as part of an expansion, due to how massive an undertaking it was. In fact, it was necessary for Cataclysm to function properly. Imagine having flight enabled in Twilight Highlands, but disabled just next door in the Wetlands. Being unable to fly from Uldum into Tanaris, Hyjal to Winterspring. They needed to redo things to make the expansion work."Using it to justify less new content is plainly wrong and dishonest."No, it's not dishonest at all. Why did Cataclysm have less end-game content than previous expansions? Because Blizzard put a lot of work into the early leveling content. That is the reason. It's not a lie. It's not deceptive. It's true. You are free to say that the expansion needed more post-80 leveling content and, in fact, I agree with you. The reason content was consumed so quickly is because there wasn't enough of it. Also, it was flat out designed to be faster. Blizzard should have stuck with a slower leveling process, not the easy path to 85 that Cataclysm has. Though it obviously would have required more time, they needed to add more zones too. I don't think anyone finished ALL the zones in BC or Wrath by max level, but it's a common thing in Cataclysm.
