Being that this affects quest XP and not mob XP, has anyone done the research yet to see how much faster this makes 1-60 (given average questing XP to 60)? In overall leveling time, I'm personally hoping the decrease isn't more than 5-15%. We really don't need leveling reduced to exact TBC levels just to make leveling quick enough for an arbitrarily chosen "12 month cycle". If they like the fast pace, easy patch 2.3-style of leveling, people can already play Classic TBC right now. Vanilla is a leveling enthusiast's paradise for a reason.
What a strange thing to do. I guess they are trying to go the Diablo 3 route of seasons? Does anybody know what exclusive rewards there are for Season of Mastery? any milestone goals?
No class changes? I was expecting way too much for this "classic fresh" server.
I love leveling but since these servers will only be relevant for 12 months (no matter if they reset, delete, or just let it all die) this isn't about enjoying the leveling process.. It's all about endgame and group content.They could easily double quest exp for all I care.Since it doesn't affect mob exp you can still run dungeons with friends and not out-level everything like in retail.Or you could just grind quests and get to endgame asap.Wouldn't mind having really fast 1-60 levels to get alts up as well.
Leveling for me is part of the journey which I loved. That being said. Even 10-15% faster it will still take some time. I'm a big fan of their plans. I'm hoping every 12 months they can shake things up a little bit with a new season ever 12 months. Increased XP in dungeons. Add XP in BG's in a new season just kind of new ways to level up and mess around. That sure would be interesting to level up in BG's as an option.
Truth be told this 25% xp increase will just balance the leveling which they probably should've had in the original game.What I mean is that there are few gaps in the leveling where you are forced essentially to do dungeons or grind mobs to fill those gaps. Now you won't need to do that and will be able to chain quests to the end. For me personally in some of the "gaps" where I would usually grind, the grind would actually bring me more xp than doing proper quests, so it's arguable if this change will speed leveling at all for the really efficient people, but for most people it will probably be around 1/10 faster, which in my opinion wouldn't be enough for a lot of people to want to level a character again.What they could've done for alts is have this buff give even more XP.
25% is too low.50% minimum or nothing.

Darn liars at HQ :( Should be 10% like it was announced. Hope it changes for the official launch & that they keep World Buffs away from Raids as promised. Also hope they would make all Raid encounters tougher & add 2x months to each Phase. Golden Classic_Era is love cause it's without dumb simplifications like Flying, giving classes own self heals, fishing not ruined with few ways & no hand helding :) Back to Azeroth later this evening with relaxed pace <3 Nightelf Druid is ready for them =) Game on & enjoy :)
It's weird they implemented the boosted quests exp as a buff in your character.
