The Burning Crusade

I loaded up World of Warcraft's 10-day trial for their expansion, The Burning Crusade, yesterday. Today, I finished getting all the way to level 61, but a big catch 22 slapped me in the face.

In the trial version of The Burning Crusade players are hard capped from gaining a level past 60. It stops the experience bar at 1 exp to next level. It makes absolutely no sense. Here is a trial for an expansion geared for level 61+ players and the trial doesn't let you level past 60. Retarded.

    It's a TRIAL. If you enjoyed the 6-8 hours that it took you to level to 60.99, then buy the game. I understand that it is a 10-day trial, but it is in Blizzard's best interest to put a limit on how far you can level in those 10 days.

  2. WoW!!! You got to level 61 in less than 10 hours? I am impressed.

    I would guess that rest XP played a role in how fast you hit 60.99.

  4. Wow... it took me 4 hours of /played to hit 60.9, but I had quests saved up :P 120k worth!

  5. I suspect it is to avoid having to reduce you back to level 60 if you decide not to continue when the trial ends.
