    Increasing the time it takes to level up your character and your necklace... yay?

    Because leveling and neck leveling are simply too easy right now, you could get a neck level 30+ before raid even opens with current values.

    because you could literally level 110 to 118/119 in one leveling zone and people are using war mode for the extra xp so they can off set it. Its still faster to level in war mode, but they literally nerfed it.

    It was probably just lower than intended on Beta, so testers could see more content.

    more xp required and more ap... let the grind begin.

    They need to give bonus objectives a bit of a xp boost. They give less then a regular quest does.

    Max 5 maybe 6 levels per zone for horde not 8/9 levels lol.

    I just want to know what the extra 35-53% per level required to level the neck translates to in play time.

    What i was most excited about BfA was to be able to play my other characters. I hated the feeling for most of legion that if i played another character i was missing out on my main due to AP and legos.

    Making it harder to level wtf.. i have 14 110's to do there is no reason to make it harder to level.
  1. Yggdrasil's Avatar
    Levels were likely set low on purpose so testing could happen at a more accelerated rate.

    No class changes.

    Nothing to see here folks.

    It's not harder. It takes longer.

    There is a major difference between time and difficulty. This is time consuming. Unless you run out of quests in a zone which is unlikely there is no difficulty or tedium to it.

    And the mobs in BFA hit like a wet noodle.

    Until 120, when suddenly mobs hit you for 1/4 of your health...

    I almost wish they'd launch a broken game instead of inviting everyone to the beta and disclosing all the patch notes so that we wouldn't have to stand all your repeated sad whining about every update that doesn't add something cool or reduce the effort required by you. Sigh.
