Players level too fast for gear to remain relevant until expansion plateaus. Stat-squishing and decreasing the power/level ratio makes leveling gear relevant longer. Players should have to update their gear every 25% of the way through the level cap instead of every 6 to 10 levels. At each expansion, flatten previous cap gear to a single i-level - the lowest denominator. Exponential power increase is desirable at max level as an incentive to keep raiding, but once the content is irrelevant, that incentive is no longer necessary at the previous cap for most of the subscribers. This also reduces the shock experienced in expansion borders, particularly for those who never raided. There is a natural desire to measure performance and lock that down to a static number, but we have short attention spans.
