Re: Moonglade and Ebon Hold: What's their purpose now?

Entire zones could be removed at this point. I'm sure it's there just because it's easier to leave alone.

85-90% of WoW content is probably not used by 99% of users in any given year.

With heirlooms, guild XP, once a player is level 15, it's dungeon finder to 90 for many.

There is an awful lot of art, that is very beautiful, but Blizzard can't figure out a way to repurpose it.

For example, instead of quests having a level in any zone, give quest xp, gold and item rewards consistent with the class and level of the player regardless of zone.

Blizzard makes almost all but the most recent content obsolete due to the method expansions are introduced. Nobody is going to work for any LK, BC or Cata cooking achievement, except out of boredom imo. For professions, BC, LK and Cata are now just obstacles to get past on the way to 600.

Which, imo, is why Blizzard should stop adding land. Instead, go back to the old lands and add new quests for higher level players. Add quests that will help increase profession skills.
Also change up the quest progression.
Currently:
Eastern Kingdoms/Kalimdor For levels 1 though 80.
Then it's Outlanders for 60 to 70
Northrend for 70 to 80
Then the rest.
Hardly a chance to use different quest lines for the many alts some of us have.
I'm at the point where, I may just jump into the battlegrounds to level for awhile, as I currently have 4 alts sitting at the starting area in outlands. I'm just so bored of outlands at this point, I started a new alt. lol.

Tell me about it. Today I spent a lot of time on my new Panda monk who is an herbist / alchemist. Had to get herbing and alchemy to 350. Took hours, but it's over. Her alchemy is 352, and her herbing is 372. At 64 she is ready to be 68 and start LK zones. Getting through outland was so much grief. It's been totally static and dead for so long.

They already provided buffers to prevent lower level toons from accidentily going into the wrong area. The higher level npcs near the border of Wetlands and Twilight Highlands is enough to prevent a level 25 staring down something 60 levels higher than it causing an omgwtfbbq.
I remember the first time discovering the emerald dream portal in NE Ashenvale when super buffed level 60 elite dragons were guarding the area. As a lowly level 25 paladin, my aggro zone was the size of Texas to them. I learned to never go near that area again, until after Cata.

I did nearly the same thing walking in Tirisfal Glades on a 20's lock. Was one of my first times playing the game back in LK and was just out exploring (mostly trying to figure out WTF am I supposed to do lol). Came across what I later found out was WPL. Only thing that saved me were a couple of high level toons happened to be right on my tail and killed the bear or spider that had aggroed to me LOL.

They already did this. It was called Cataclysm. And it was a huge flop of an expansion.

It was good for those who leveled fresh toons via questing. For the rest... it was a bit lackluster.

I didn't think it was that bad of an expansion.

For end game it was lackluster. For exploration and new quest lines in old zones it was great. The WPL and EPL were well done and I still vote the Silverpine/Gilneas area as best redone zone. I just wish the Cataclysm had somehow ripped through the dark portal and affected BC zones, and had at least rattled LK areas.
