The 50% XP buff given from levels 10 to 60 has really made a lot of the world come to life. I’ve been seeing lots more people out in the world. More people means more people playing the game, I can’t see that as being a bad thing.

It has been suggested on the general forum that the Winds of Wisdom 50% XP buff should be extended until the release of Dragonflight. I actually agree with this sentiment. Giving people the chance to level up more alts more quickly in preparation for the new expansion can only be healthy for the game.

One would counterargue that leveling is fast enough from 1 to 50. It is fast, but 50% faster is even better.

Something similar was done in 2020 when the XP buff was extended until the release of Shadowlands. Different circumstances, but I still think it could be a good way to show some goodwill to people. It’s definitely had an impact on the amount to people logged on concurrently, that part can’t be disputed by really anyone.

More people to interact with, more people to play with, more people to make new friends with.

Why not make it so, Blizzard?

Just a mere suggestion, not begging, whining or feeling entitled, just wanted to echo the suggestion many others have given as well.

Thank you for this feedback. We selected the timing of this buff to specifically benefit players who were preparing for Season 4.

We’re always thinking about when might be the right time to do an XP buff again in the future, and we do not have any immediate plans to announce at this time, but we’ll take this feedback into account when considering future leveling bonus events.
