Blizzard to cut mount costs and lower training levels in WoW

2009-06-11 08:20:00  ยท  Brad Nicholson

Veteran players can attest: it’s getting easier to do things early in World of Warcraft. As the MMO ages, Blizzard continues to tweak the game softly so the newcomer can get in on higher-level action faster.  The next patch -- 3.2 -- won’t be an exception to the friendly trend. Changes to the mount system are coming.

Zarhym, World of Warcraft’s community manager, threw down a list of mount changes coming to the MMO with the “next major content patch.” From it, we see that Blizzard is lowering the training levels, increasing speed across the board, and cutting the cost of training and purchasing the little buggers. Nice.

A small listing of the mount changes is available below the fold, but the full details can be found at WoW.com.

Call us crazy, but we don’t mind WoW is steadily becoming more accessible. What’s your take on it? Do you mind that people are blitzing through stuff that may have taken you a week or so to complete?
