Sweet jumping crapola the leveling changes in WoW are much more impacting than I anticipated. I already told you all how I hit 37 in just a few hours of playing on Sunday, but I spent 90 minutes last night in Dustwallow Marsh, an area I'm not familiar with questing in, and I hit level 38 in just under that time. I had rest experience, like before, so that helped a lot I know, but I doubt without it it would have taken much more time. You only get the rest experience when killing things, and most of my quests involved actions like burning things down or killing a named mob, and being a druid I snuck my way around most of it.
So already, in 2 days back to alt-ing it up, I've gained 4 levels. If ever there was a hook to get me back to playing my alts in WoW this speed change was it. They're not handing the levels to you via a slash command, you still earn them, but they're taking a lot less time to grind than they used to. And it does feel nice. Yes, yes it does.
Anyone else spending time with an underloved alt character these days?
