I touched on something similar to this a while back on my column as well.

http://www.massively.com/2007/11/07/building-a-better-mmoustrap-can-you-teach-old-content-new-tric/

I think that bringing back old content is something that can be done both smartly and without losing the original feel for the areas.

I know a lot of people are burnt out after two years of motlen core runs and never want to go back, but there are a few people (like myself) who loved the old content. I'd love to see a re-tooling of MC/BWL/AQ/Naxx for smaller groups so that I can take friends new to the game into the zones and show them how great they were.

I think the trick is that some of the boss encounters required a larger number of people for crowd control or tanking (Sulfuron, Four Horsemen, et al) and they would need to be retuned for say a 10 or 25 man group without losing the bulk of the encounters fun and difficulty.

I know that Blizz is already working on doing a 25-man Naxx for Wrath of the Lich King, and I would love to see them continue the trend for other content.

My guild currently is on T5 TBC content, but a group of us have been going back and doing old world raids. For most of them it's old hat, but it's really fun for me since I only hit 60 a few weeks before the expansion hit.

I think the Naxx part deux is a special case, but it would be nice to see Blizz retune old raid zones as new heroics or the like.

add heroic versions designed for smaller groups. 40 mans suck ass

or really, just make a system where you can change the level of the entire dungeon to almost anything you want, and have the loot change accordingly. want to solo scholmance at lvl 70? turn the enemies down to lvl 40 or 30 or whatever, just to experience the content. want to try black temple just to see it, but don't care about the tier 6 loot? change it down to lvl 50, grab a few friends, and 5 man it for reduced rewards.
