To make players feel more powerful?
To make players do more quests?
Can't blizzard just introduce new skills,raids or maybe classes&races to WOW without raising the level cap?
Is it really necessary?
By raising the level cap, new players will never have the chance to do "old" raids.
That's really a pity.
Imagine if we were still at lvl60 in this expansion and all the lvl70,80, 85 contents are re-amplified to lvl60, we could do so many more classic raids. Those old contents would become challenging and interesting once again.
Wow would then feel like a "World" instead of just org,TB, arenas, dungeons and 3 raids.
The only reason to raise level cap I can think of is, if people are getting better gear in each expansion, they may become too powerful as time goes by.
Here is my suggestion:
Blizzard can change the parameters to make it right.
For example, in patch 4.0, 400 intellect offers 400 extra spell dmg, in patch 4.1 400 intellect may offer only 360 extra dmg. So if you want 400 extra dmg, you need new gear or 'upgrade' your former gear.
1. By 'upgrade', I mean you can use justice(honor)/valor(conquest) points to increase your gear's item level. You can use justice point to upgrade gear from 1 to 346, valor points to upgrade the gear from 346 to 359.Old raid should offer (less)valor points too because they don't become easier. In each expansion, there is a hard item level cap, meaning you can't infinitely increase the item level.
2. Make the items with same item level have the same states, no matter it's grey or purple.So that players can use whatever gear that they like. It would be cool if you were wearing grey gears and could still do well in everything. On the other hand, make the purple ones really rare and have extra fun(non combat) effects. Make the bosses drop white or even grey gears with high item level and have a small chance of epic gear drop instead of dropping all purple ones.
Maybe that sounds too complicated, but all I want is to do the old raids and experience the world as it was. Why should we pay for 4 expansions when all we can do is 3 raids in PVE?
Isn't it better if blizzard don't raise the level cap? Will you be exited if in the next expansion, we became lvl60 and could do all the classic raids again?
Thank you for reading this and please tell me what do you think of this idea.
Sorry for bad English.
