Strat and Scholo: The New Shadowfang Keep?
Relmstein over at The Many Relms of Relmstein had an extremely thought-provoking post: Can the Current Level 60 Dungeons be Saved? In it he makes several very good points about how the Burning Crusade will affect current dungeons. If players indeed experience the same difficulty level in doing Scholomance as doing Hellfire Citadel, but with lower-level rewards, why should players run the older instances? Will Scholomance become a rarely-run dungeon along the lines of Shadowfang Keep?
What do you think would be be best way to handle this issue? As he points out, the option that Blizzard seems to be taking is to ignore the older content, which would be a shame. It seems a much better solution to rebalance the difficulty level of the older content, so that those areas remain a feasible option for mid-level players.
Nice post, and bound to generate discussion. What do you think?
