Read away to your heart's content
Interesting things you can pick up on?
What I gleaned:
1. No new info, have a snazzy rp post.
2. We're giving digital purchases the 90 upgrade right away
3. We will sell you a free 90 for real money.
This is starting to get f....ng stupid now, ok I can live with the bloody shop but now buyable 90s? so someone who has more expendable cash than me can insta buy an almost max level character whilst I slave away leveling alts? because yes it is slaving nowadays as all old content is so dumbed down and boring I've done it over 20 times and I wouldn't be suprised if newbies quit because of it
"In addition, when you pre-purchase either digital version, we’re going to grant you your level-90 boost at the time of pre-purchase. That’s a little different from the plan we laid out at BlizzCon, but based on the feedback, it’s obvious that many of you would like the chance to get acquainted with a new class before heading into the expansion. This will also give more players the opportunity to experience the current end-game content and the events leading up to Garrosh’s exodus to Draenor. Maybe you’ll get your Legendary cloak from Wrathion and level 90–100 Heirloom weapon in the process."
That's new... and interesting
The free 90 before WoD will be nice.
While new info, I did expect this.
No mention at all of Annual Pass also caught my eye.
Someone else posted it, that's fine. I wasn't trying to make a big thread, just wanted to post it in a place that would be seen by people who wanted to see it. If the thread becomes redundant a mod will come along and remove it, which I'm sure they will. No need to be antsy, rude and aggressive over it. Cool your jets soldiers.
Just pointing out the news post confirmed the CE contains both a pet AND mount.
People were discussing it earlier, as in, will we get a mount, turns out, yes.
Not major news, but it's new...thus...news.
Also a "soon" PTR with instant 90's is pretty big, remember we are testing the DK style start, so that actually indicates, if they have done that for every class already, they can't be as delayed as people assume, all the instant 90 stuff you'd assume would come last in terms of development, but it's indicated that its ready to be tested "soon".
Hopefully this means beta really will be soon but never know with blizzard.
Sigh.. buying characters for money.
It technically is not paying for power, but such a service reaches an awkward threshold.
If it costs too much, no one will pay for it. This may make blizzard want leveling to such even more in order to increase character boost sales.
If it costs too little, everyone will buy it. Anything pre 90 will be a desert wasteland, except for the odd botter gathering herbs.
It also kills the RPG aspect greatly. Even if 90-100 takes the same amount of time as 1-90, I would feel more attached to the character I leveled from level 1. You are not building up your character completely, and as a result, you skip literally 10 years of story from the game.
