Keeping Wow in WoW: Trapped in Outland

Keeping Wow in WoW: Trapped in Outland - World of Warcraft - MMORPG.com

This week, Joe Iuliani sets his sights on on ways that Blizzard can get level 70 players back into their home areas.

Is it me or once you hit level 70 do you feel trapped in Outland? Sure there are the Seasonal Events “back home” to get players involved in Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms, and those events are great. *cough* see last week’s column *cough, cough* Additionally there are the High Level Outland instances including Serpentshrine Cavern, The Black Temple, and Mount Hyjal as well as all the heroic level instances. And let’s not forget PvP (not that any hardcore WoW player could). All Outland based options for the level 70 player.

The problem is, once new zones are launched, game developers have to expect that those original zones will empty out, especially when those new zones are geared toward end-game level characters. A prime example of this was found in Dark Age of Camelot, when everybody jumped to the Shrouded Isle zones. The upcoming Zul’Aman will take you to the Ghostlands, but that is still a Burning Crusade zone.

Read it all here.
