BlizzCon 2009: Mentoring Could be on the Horizon
In Episode #0 we discussed the possibility of downleveling your gear to assist lower level friends/guildees without doing all of the work for them. Well according to MMO-Champion, Blizzard is contemplating this very idea. In the Open Q&A Panel at Blizzcon, Blizzard mentioned an interest in introducing a mentoring system that would allow higher level players to assist lower level players without feeling like a powerleveling service for that player. The feature might not be released with Cataclysm. Whether that means we could see it with patch 3.2.2 or a post-expansion patch is unclear.
