Nighthaven PvP (Content Patch 1.4) — Development Update

We discovered that the experience point gains for quests level 30 to 60 were incorrectly set to award the accelerated amount of experience points that Blizzard moved to at Patch 2.3 in November 2007. We have applied a fix to issue #276 that adjusts quest experience rewards to match the amounts given during the original Vanilla World of Warcraft days.

Examples of the issue:

Quest 1136 - Frostmaw (Level 37) - was giving 5550 XP instead of 4250 XP 
Quest 1691 - More Wastewander Justice (Level 44) - was giving 5300 XP instead of 3750 XP
Quest 2641 - Sprinkle's Secret Ingredient (Level 49) - was giving 6550 XP instead of 4550 XP
Quest 3882 - Roll the Bones (Level 51) - was giving 7050 XP instead of 4900 XP
Quest 5213 - The Active Agent (Level 60) - was giving 14300 XP instead of 6850 XP

The Quest XP increases can be seen on the original ThottBot pages, and looking at pre- and post-November 2007 versions of a quest page. For example: quest 5213

Pre-2.3: https://web.archive.org/web/20071103193148/http://thottbot.com:80/q5213 6850 XP

Why archive thottbot pages dated in TBC period (November 2007) can be a proof for vanilla ?
This "Pre 2.3  -  Post 2.3" CAN mean period 2.0.0 - 2.3.0 and not a "VANILLA patch when blizzard add quests"

The 2.3 patch notes state they've increased the XP levels. There are no older patch notes stating they decreased the XP, so it's reasonable to go with the pre-2.3 XP levels being from Vanilla days.
