Increased levels are retarded, just adds even more grind to the game, glad Mythic would never do anything that stupid!...

I found WoW the opposite of every other MMORPG in that the only fun thing to do in it for me was leveling. Running quests was fun the same way a good old single-player CRPG used to be fun. It was when I ran out of levels and discovered the lack of fun in the PvP that I got bored.

I think level raise is shit idea - once everyone is lvl 70 they will have more HP, more mana, better styles/spells, but relations between players will be the same, and they will screw up lvl 60 content, people spent days in MC and BWL sofar, how will they look at the fact it can be farmed 10 men after lvl raise? :P

Wondering where Blizzard gets their ideas for the xpack...
Yay, more lvling ;)
Always thought it was crap idea to extend that pain process in a pure form of lvl cap raise...
But agreed also with Cryn, it's not a big deal. Lvling is smooth in WoW, not a grind at all.
Not sure tho how all this will fit into the game balance..
Just imagining now u'll get ganked by a lvl 70 when lvling, not lvl 60 , heh :D

I hoped tho for some new classes, not races...

Well, from the trailer it looks like in very very early stage of development..
It's mainly concept art and only few rendered scenes.
Hmm, i hope blizzard will make some turns and adjusts stuff to make it more appealing.

Hope more low numbers (5 ppl instancing) content is added and not more of this raiding crap..

I hope too, Blizzard gets smarter and rips some PvP concept of Mythic, to improve bit the PvP part.

Like open field PvP, and if I'm not wrong they are doing just that - I think I saw somewhere they are putting in outdoor capturable objects. I have no idea what exactly that means, but seems like a step into right direction to me. But first I think they have to significatly improve CP/kill ration and fix some other things, like loosing AB in 3 minutes (= sitting in your base doing nothing) gains you more CP/hour than playing fair and winning in 15 minutes.
