I like the resurrection of old content, as long as they don't 'modernize' them too much.Only thing was I regret what Blizz did to Sunken Temple. I enjoyed the long instance when doing my level 50 quest. Many quests ended in a Sunken Temple quest.I have fond memories of the long crawl through the instance, done on most characters that I have levelled up.Now you zap to the bottom level where you fight the dragons. Modernize it if you will, but have an option to complete the whole instance for some quest.I started wow in 2005 and it was relatively hard then with elite mobs outside instances and fairly difficult quests to get the next level of conjured water or some uber mount.Now it's made easier to suit casual raiders. I felt the old level 60 vanilla wow had an "inconvenience factor" which has been watered down somewhat.However wow is more polished now and when I played Aion a few months ago (not any more) I realized it had the unpolished quality like 2005 vanilla wow.

I'm familiar enough with most low-level dungeons where if they retained their original difficulty I would probably still be able to complete quests/other on appropriate-level characters, but I don't know that all/most new players have the same experience.My memories of low-level instances the first time around, while often great, are also of unwieldy masses of corridors, bosses that I probably never heard of because I didn't know how to get to them, encounters that couldn't be done because no one was on the quest, and people saying "this will take forever to do; let's just skip it" - I think it's good for the developers to cut back on some of the tedious parts so newer players don't think all of WoW is that difficult to navigate or understand.
