Wrath 4

I think it needs some fine tuning, but otherwise good.
Cata 5. I've been waiting impatiently for these changes.
bc; 5
Surprised this thread is still here lol. Op does realize polls, petitions, and what not are frowned upon.
Late BC - 4. Leveling needed to be revamped after the last stat squish. However, I DO NOT agree with the crazy nerfs to heirlooms and the stealth removal of XP pots.

I'm going to split my vote:

Quest and mob level scaling: 5
Difficulty increase (mob health buff, heirloom Nerf, etc): 1
Cata, 4.5

I feel very much the same you do, except I have to add
They didn't scale it so I could stay in Wrath until 100, because I absolutely hate WoD!
TBC : 2.

The level scaling is good. Being able to stay in around the same area from 1-60 is incredible. If I were to split the vote, that's an instant 5.

The issue is the mob buffs and player nerfs. That's not fun.
Vanilla, 4.

Returning player after a long break (quit in WotLK). Just started playing again a week ago, so I can immediately compare the 80-90 leveling pre- and post-patch. My alts have a mix of questing greens/blues and old LK epics, no heirlooms.

I like:
-being able to choose different paths to leveling, so I'll take one alt to 90 thru Cata zones, and another thru Pandaria.
-Regular mobs taking more than 2 dots to kill (my shadow priest would see Shadow Word: Death flash on my bar, but the mob would die before I could hit the key)
-being able to complete the storyline in a zone, and still get good xp for it

Might be overtuned:
-some of the elite mobs are a lot harder to kill and survive.
My priest had issues today with 2 quests - The Firelord (killing Ragnaros: in fact I met another player in the instance who said he'd been trying to kill him for 2 hours before I showed up), and The Protectors of Hyjal (Molten Front daily, killing 6 elites with npc help).
No cus polls get boted
Early BC - 1.

Explaining why just feels like beating a dead horse at this point. I love dungeons. Dungeons now suck. Not because they're difficult—they're not—but because they take an incredibly long time to complete even with a fantastic group.

Not out-leveling zones is good. More choice in leveling path is good.

Mob HP increases and XP/level increases, not so much. Doesn't make questing more challenging; does make it more tedious IMO for those who have walked those paths before.

BC, 3

This. I farmed all my heirloom gear for no reason if I can't quickly kill mobs, I did some on ptr, and didn't mind it but today when I hopped on my level 60 lock and went to Northrend I got bored kinda quickly at Vallience keep. I will still do it, but if I wanted to grind the mobs I'd just wear the quest reward gear they give us and not my looms.

I may be a wrath baby but I love not one shotting things and getting fancy loots from chests in the world.

This might be interesting and informative. Can we, without editorializing, post what expansion we started playing in and rate the new lvling system 1-5?

I'll start: Cata, 3.

Vanilla, 5
Vanilla, mob scaling 5, xp per kill and in dungeons 2, nerfing heirlooms so they are just quest greens -3.
paid way to much gold to get all the heirlooms to lvl 110 only to have them nerfed into the dirt.
BC - 2, Scaling is cool, all the changes that makes it a much longer process to hit max level is where it really falls short for me. I have leveled plenty of characters to max current content. highest amount of characters at max level at once time was in pandaria where I had 27 characters between US and EU at 90. I personally have no desire for a longer leveling process, as it makes it tedious to make a new character. For me I see this as a marketing scheme by blizzard to make the 60 dollar boosts more enticing. If they don't fix the experience gain rates I can tell you for sure it is without a doubt a ploy to get more 100 boost purchases.
Vanilla - 2

Loses points for the nerfs, though I don't mind the mob health and love the scaling. It gets a plus for still being massively faster than vanilla's speeds.
