Do you crave to hear that ding once again? Well, the next expansion is not bringing more levels but prior to its launch we will be seeing a faster gain of experience for levels 20-70! Noel "Ilucide" Walling explains exactly how it will all work.
Quite simply, we want people to have a better play experience. When you think about levelling through a 10 level spread when we do a level cap raise, there are a lot of other players around. The game feels really alive, and vibrant, because you've got people around you making your experience different every time you log in. Now look at levelling alts, especially in the 20-70 range. It's a completely different experience, especially if you don't have a few friends doing the same thing with you. What we want to do is to get new players into the game faster, give them a better experience while they're levelling up, and at the same time, give some of you folks who've been with us for a long time a chance to level up new characters without spending forever doing it.
Noel continues on to discuss achievement experience and mentoring among other things. To read more on these changes and to give feedback if you happen to be playing on test, please visit this official forum thread!
