With the level cap raised to 40 in SoD Phase 2, the focus of many players naturally shifts toward the leveling process.

Open-world leveling remains a viable choice. Yet, given its time-consuming nature, a disparity in levels between players who run dungeons and players who don’t start emerging. Some players have already achieved the maximum level cap. And there are others who run around doing quests, trying to get their Exp bar up. Eventually, there may be players who abandon open-world leveling altogether, contradicting the essence of the Season of Discovery, which aims to encourage gamers to explore the magical world of Azeroth.

It remains to be seen how the development team will deal with this issue in future Phases.
