#1 - 2012/11/02 08:59:00 PMHey Blizzard, please stop tuning each new xpac's starting zones around the premise that any character will have months or years to camp the prior level cap and gain really inflated ilvl gear?
Making a new toon and leveling up through the game each xpac switch over is significantly harder for a few levels then smooths out. Having just leveled a new mags to 85 I was surprised by my inability to kill a basic MoP mob in under a minute. Good gear for leveling Cata and a few hit to Nike a mob, then Jade Forest and I'm hitting with wet noodles.
Using the suggested dps rotations from various sites, running ilvl 316-333 gear, and the first quest reward I get is 372. Do you really need to presume all too s are fully decked out in full raid gear from the prior xpac? There are new players and players with new rooms trying to experience the content.
Tone down the jump already.
