Level scaling is a game mechanic introduced in WoW® Legion. The essence of this feature is that item drops and rewards, mobs, and quests scale to the level of the character. Leveling zones from 10–70 will dynamically scale to your character’s level for a certain range.[1]

 

  • Starting Zones: 1-10
  • Classic Zones: 10-70
  • Outland: 50-70
