Common Problems

My Demon Hunter and Death Knight characters created before pre-patch are level 8 instead of what they should be.

Characters are not fully created until they are logged into the first time. Demon Hunter and Death Knight characters which were created, but not logged into, prior to pre-patch are treated as brand new characters for level squish, so are level 8 when you first log in. Characters created before the prepatch which were logged into were squished based on the level they were before the patch and will show as higher level characters.
