Experience is going to get faster sooner {WoW}

Aug 24th 2007 6:26PM Furthermore,

Resetting my exp to 0 every time I ding is a bit deflating. I want a running total please.

Experience is going to get faster sooner {WoW}

Aug 24th 2007 6:13PM Heres my point, and you can take this from what you will. The game itself has more content than any character can experience, but one character can go from zone to zone to zone and just like that, hes skipped content that he could have been seeing as per other races. It all becomes rep grind from that point. Players need incentive to think outside the leveling lines and not just sit there and do the same thing to get to 70 over and over again, and if they shorten the experience, you get to see even less of the content.

Alright, I'll add this -- on Non RP Servers, if you want to level-nerf, thats fine, but for those of us interested in lore, and experiencing content, dont do it. Its pointless for my lvl 70 BE Warlock to go into MC other than to experience content, and dont just give me some shiny new mount at the end of the run, or some epic whatever, make it relevant to the experience of my character?

Aug 24th 2007 5:51PM **Sigh** repost from an earlier article I responded to:

Your comments: I'm Sorry, I've got to rant a bit.I just got done reading the universe
of whiners saying "1-58 is no fun." and the fact they want levelnerfing. Please. If anything Blizzard has made leveling TOO EASY!You go into a new area, you get 250 exp. You complete a FedEx quest,you get 2,000 exp. It took me about 12 months to level my first
character on Diablo2 to 99. With WoW, it should be HARDER becausethere are guildies and allies helping you. Yes, quest chains needfixing, I understand that. But I dont want to see lvl 50s completing
full exp quests in Arathi Highlands because all of a sudden, yourquest to kill trolls suddenly nets you 15K exp, (or worse, they nerfthe exp number requirements). The more experience you have, the
better you should be able to play the game. Level 70 should meansomething, (you should do every bit of content available to you as part of the leveling process) not just "Oh boy, I bought a level guide, look what I cando!"Anyway, I know I'm going to be taken to task for this so -- let me have it.

Are the forums necessary? {WoW}

Aug 24th 2007 11:46AM In a word ... no, they are not necessary.

Why? I would gather that the majority of people who read/write in forums & blogs are the same people that read and write in sites like this, making the worldofwarcraft.com forum community moot. Yes, you have the blues telling you of changes in patches, but the same information eventually ends up on patch notes, and what % of the players stop and read them. They take up unnecessary space which could be used to improve the Armory beyond what they already have, or other site improvements. The forums are also a source of false rumors, heated battles (some that have nothing to do with the topic), and other silliness and drivvel.

Yes, you have 9 million players. Yes .1% of the playerbase is 90.000. I dont think we would lose 10% of that # if WoW closed the forums down. I would think Blizzard has banned at least that many gold farming accounts.

If something is going to be posted that isn't original material, the impression must not be left that it is.
