    Item level squishing vs. Old content

    Guys i was thinking, the item level squishing will disrupt the running old dungeons and raids in some way?

    There are numerous other threads and questions about it. It depends how they scale it, and we don't know how they will do it.

    how about it just shouldn't happen I didn't pay all this money to be nerfed back down to level 70 power and gear its absolutely absurd and ridiculous and trust me they will lose most of there player base. No game has moved forward to take 30 steps back EVER!!

    Yes. We don't want players to reject the squish for fear of losing the ability to solo old content. (Source)

    It's not moving back, the only difference is you will see 10 instead of 1000. You can already change that kind of thing with addons, over dramatic much.

    Well, this was elaborated! If they squish, it would make you gain less power each level which in turn would affect dungeons etc if they aren't attuned accordingly. I would however prefer that they use prefixes instead of doing a squish, that wouldn't affect anything.

    I don't understand how it won't make soloing old content harder, unless they squish everything but that wasn't the plan was it? You can't squish al evel 1

    Tier gear should be available during the leveling process. I don't want to have to mingle with these eltitist jerks in LFR to get gear as it is. I pay a sub fee, I shouldn't have to do LFR to get raid gear, much less Flex or Normal.

    Ignore Aqua's post, it's meaningless. They don't want it, but they cannot avoid it.

    No, it is moving back, at least if they do it like they proposed before MoP. What they're planning is quite different from just chopping off the last digits.

    For what it's worth, it's impossible to do the squish without affecting old content.

    Even then it would still be affected. Due to it's nature, higher level content will be squished more than lower level.
