    "revamped" them for cata

    making us throw darts for mop

    honestly wouldn't be surprised if they just gave us 1 talent per spec every x levels in the following expac to "make balancing easier."

    (excuse my cynicism but it's quite hard to believe they know what they're doing when it gets changed so often)

    The +5 level cap has more precedence than the +15 level talent addition, so they are more likely to restructure the talent numbers.

    I think within the next expansion the talents will be completely gone and everything will be worked into the specs.

    It's slowly progressing in this direction.

    It's similar to how to government takes away our rights, they do it slowly inch by inch right infront of us so when they are finally gone we don't even notice and agree with what they have done.


    not srs





    ok semi srs


    do it

    Somehow i doubt that this would be the case. Since Blizzard take it upon themselves to completely review the talent system the game every single expansion pack i think the latter is by far the more plausible scenario.

    Personally I would be interested in seeing some expansion sets that do not raise the level cap and instead invested resources into alternate forms of advancement through collaborative content. I have a number of reasons for believing that this would be a viable option, but for me the most compelling is how raising the level cap completely nullifies all of the prior two to three years worth of content production. Since new raid tier patches more or less already function as a very effective means to reset the the balance of power, and since all of the other things we are accustomed to seeing in a new expansion pack (new zones, new dungeons, new abilities, etc) can all be acquired without a level boost, all a level cap increase accomplishes these days is forces the player base to completely abandon old content. I don't believe we need to associate our characters with a higher number just to make us feel more powerful in a game.

    Just think about all of the heroic group and raid content that has been left in the dust over the years. Wouldn't it be nice to have an expansion set that didn't instantly trivialize these things?

    So here is a more interesting question: would you play the next expansion pack if all it gave you in terms of level boost was 90 -> 90 Elite.

    I, for one, would be completely willing to see how that worked. However, I think it would be a bold move that a lot of subscribers wouldn't be jumping up and down for with excitement.

    Ye it doesn't seem they make the talent systems with the future in mind.
    Nothing worth having comes easy. That's why hard content is worth doing, and easy content is a waste of time.

    we dont even have mop yet and you are speculating about what comes next???
    WHY?

  8. #28
    5 levels per expansion aslong as wow is profitable. Simple as.

They've already seen that they can still pull off an expansion with just 5 levels and just content enough for 5 levels and people will still be satisfied, so it would be financially unsound and a complete waste of effort/profit for the company.

    Seriously...

    It should go 100, 110, 120 in the next 3 expanions. just add new talents at every 10 levels after 90.

    My bet is that we are nowhere near killing sargeras.......the guy has been aroudn for 10k years just messing with azeroth he had time to mess with other planet meanwhile. We wont kill sargeras we will repel him but not kill him. Killing OP draenei with super lock power is hard, imagine a Titan, we arent even sure if we are able to kill and old god. Sargeras wont be killable, it must not be killable. He will be into a prison. Maybe more titan fell after sargeras.... who knows.
    ENGLISH ISNT MY MAIN SPEC
    YOU NOW BREATH CONSCIOUSLY

    no, they will just give you a new talent at level 95, same as they did with cata talent revamp, you got a talentpoint for every level over 80 instead of every 2nd one

    This is probably the most likely option. Add a seventh tier at level 95, sure it's not 15 levels but it'll do until 105. Then bump it up to 100 with some new talents. Then to 105. Rinse/repeat.

    They'll probably re-do the whole talent system from scratch - yet again - so it doesn't really matter.

    I'm glad you know the inner workings of Blizzard and how they intended the game to progress...WoW classic was huge, if Blizzard wasn't already planning, or at least thinking about, multiple expansions at that point, I would be very surprised.

    I've still never been provided with a source about this mysterious final level cap to be 100. Everyone seems to think that 100 will the end all and be all of WoW. Not to say it's not possible but, so many people used it as fact.

    Anyways, Blizzard has a plan, I'm sure.

    Or they could just start doing it every 5 lvl from next Xpac on

  17. #37
    Just a hint.. current talent system, you have 1 talent point every 2 levels, but at 80 you get one per level.

    It's not linear!

  18. #38
    The problem with level caps getting this high is that it is a HUGE daunting road block to new players. "You mean I've got to level from 1 to 100?"

    it's quite possible that 90 to 100 will be 10 expansions, each with 1 level to gain, each expansion coming out every 4 months... and each one STILL costing $50-$60.


    you never know.
    No. Just no.

    Another Miss Cleo here, currently wow supports up to level 255, why the heck would it end at 100?

    Sometimes I just wonder if people are really this ignorant or if I'm being royalty trolled. Personally I pray for a troll, I'd like to keep hope on this community.
