Zarhym announced there will be a 20% reduction in experience required to level from 71 to 80 when Patch 4.0.3a goes live. This is excellent news, as all other indicators suggested the experience numbers would remain the same, which is very different than previous expansions.
I am thrilled, because I have a Paladin sitting at level 69 that just might benefit from this!
Here is the post from Zarhym, and the [Source] as well!
Good thread, Sammew. Aside from content, also included in the upcoming patch are several class balance changes and bug fixes. Due to several talent revisions for select classes, druids, paladins, priests, and shaman will have their talent trees reset.
Experience required to gain levels 71 through 80 is being reduced by 20%.
You’ll also get the Cataclysm introductory cinematic and new login screen.
