the old zones would be better suited for questing with full heirlooms too. right now mobs die at the sheer sight of you and outleveling the zones before you finish is a bit of a pain in the ass.

No OP, MMO's don't work like that.
I just wish orgrimmar would be more trollish now rather than iron horde garrosh
Probably the reason why they removed that ability.
Much love to Indicate for creating. Eis' work
With the huge increase in leveling speed, such 'elite' quests' would merely be dropped once players out levelled it anyway. A lot of the elite quests can be soloed with a bit of creativity. (Mind Controlling my way through Hinterland troll elites was fun)
I for one, would resub the game if they bring it back as an optional leveling area without cost to their new expansion content.
Deadmines, Wailing Caverns and other revamp dungeons were never in the way, and were simply 'excuses' to remake them, sometimes for new heroics at max level
Not sure on the effort because they are doing 'a different version of Draenor' for WoD so we will see
You are missing the point
The Zones were also very unbalanced itself, some zones were just left alone because they were unreachable or simply lacked a halfway decent amount of quests.
Arathi for the Alliance was almost never done because you had far too few quests
Swamps of Sorrow was pretty much unreachable for any Horde player around ~level 35
Dustwallow just had a few quests for both factions (Which got fix'd during BC)
Very often, almost everyone ran through the same pattern of zones simply because they had a decent amount of quests while other zones were totally abandoned.

Too often, we are mistaken for druidic types. perhaps that's true for some shaman, but do not let yourself be plagued by the ignorant belief that we are always peaceful.
Nothing about what I do is harmonious. I command the elements to my will. There is nothing offered in return. I would have it no other way.
Never assume an ogre's stupid, that's when they'll get you.
This idea has been mentioned before, but it can ABSOLUTELY NEVER happen. The pre cata world and the post cata world are completely seperate maps, are of different sizes, and shaped differently. It qould be impossible to do the phasing that the OP is asking for.
Eh, I think doing quests or whatnot could get complicated at least behind the scenes.. Though having started playing in Wrath I wouldn't mind seeing what may have been different before then.
I would love it, but i dont think it will happen.
Havent been a fan of questing since cata, its just not the same genre, its too guiding now, or maybe i have just got older :P
I like both sets of zones for different reasons. Mostly Cata because of the evolution /devolution of a zone and Azeroth because of nostalgia and nostalgia.
Some of the maps are exactly the same, Westfall, Duskwood, Redridge Mountains and Arathi Highlands have 0 changes. You are talking about zones like Barrens and STV which now have a north/south map
I'm pretty sure it'd be incredibly difficult to do technically, and that it would add a lot of memory space required to play the game
