This is part of Blizzard’s long-term plan to keep more players and entice new ones. The lead designer of the game said that they’ve added new scaling systems to make dungeon levels more fun and interactive. It is said that this is Blizzard’s response to the criticism that the previous expansion, Warlords of Draenor, was not engaging enough in terms of dungeon-based gameplay.
