No, Blizzard hasn’t figured out just yet how it broke leveling with Patch 8.0, but at least the studio is taking steps to institute a stopgap measure to help those making the journey from 1 to 110 in World of Warcraft.
Last night, the studio announced that a hotfix was going into the MMO to ease the burden that was accidentally created by this patch. “We’ve pushed a hotfix that reduces the amount of XP needed for most levels between 40 and 100,” Blizzard said. “Note that the new required amounts may not always display properly for the time being.”
The main sticking point was the level 60 to 80 span, and Blizzard said that this change averages out to around a 14% reduction in XP requirements than previously.
