And again, they cheated us who paid real money for them.
Interesting. I never read that dev post. Do you know where it is?

Given the dummies are the only NPCs I'm aware of that scales to level, I don't see how it can ever be an accident that they scaled. It's not like someone just facerolled on their keyboard and accidentally put some code that made the training dummies that only mobs in the game that scaled to your level.

Also, I realize the capital worlds have different levels of dummies and since 2.1, that's were I go, but it's still a bad change. Legacy unlocks are supposed to be convenience awards, but the usefulness of these are all but gone.
Exactly in used the PvP training dummy whenever I changed specs/rotations or just haven't played that toon for awhile. I really liked being able to log on to a toon and see how fluid my rotation was and some practice versus going into a WZ and noobing out.

Anyway this was super usefully and now it's super ****** the level toons can't even hit it. Please fix this as we paid CCs for this option.

It would be nice if *one* of them did

I like how so many people jump on the operations wagon. Seems like people forget about the warzone dummy. We pvp from lvl 10-endgame. I can let the ops dummy slid as always 55 but war zone does need to scale.
