But perhaps that is an outdated way of thinking?
I mean, a problem identified by some raiders is that new players don't know how to raid once they reach the endgame.
The logical way to adress that problem would be to introduce raiding earlier, so new players are more experienced once they reach the endgame, no?
Ultimately, the reason why people don't do any of the old raiding instances when leveling is mainly because of the fact that the experience you get is trivial.
But what if the experience you got from raids was as good as the experience you could get from doing 5man dungeons? Would leveling players be more inclined to do MC, BWL and Naxx while leveling then? I think so.
If you decreased the level range of the raids a bit, so that MC became a level 40 raid, BWL a level 45 raid, and AQ a level 50 raid, would you not have a viable leveling path through raiding alone then?
It could be done for TBC as well, by having SSC/TK be intended for level 60 players, and BT/MH for level 65 players, and maybe Sunwell remain as a level 70 raid.
I mean, imagine if you could level up from level 40 to level 80 through raiding alone - that would be awesome.
It would give leveling guilds a whole new gameplay aspect to focus on, and it could help "teach" newcomers what raiding is all about, before setting foot into the hard raiding content at level 85.
If the raids were balanced to not be much harder than the 5man dungeons, then it wouldn't be difficult to form a 10 or 25man raid for them. And they're already filled with loot and gold, so...
I would not mind if Blizzard re-made the old raids so that they supported leveling, rather than now where they just act as museums for players who want a nostalgic look into the past.
