    I don't agree with the gear they get, as it will basicly eliminate heroic dungeons even more then they are after timeless isle, however I understand that this late in the expansion it doesn't really matter, most people are fed up with the content and just want to do raids to pass time til wod comes, so I accept it.
    Joke's on you for not waiting for a Steam Sale.

    It's the cost of the game.

    I love leveling. Have lots of max toons. However, I would consider this if I wanted to play with friends on another server or faction just so I can avoid leveling in Pandaria. Most people hate TBC and Wrath zones....not me.....I like them. I hate leveling in Pandaria.

    A $60 price point gives Blizzard a lot of room to discount.

    If WoW is the golden goose, this is the platinum cow because man, it's going to be milked.

    Apropos, sign me up. I'm ready to run another alt in guild Flex runs now.

    What do you mean, not have the time? Leveling is a fuckin' time sink -- it's not fun (to most). The content most of us are trying to get to is at level 90. Why on earth would I spend the time to level when I can pay $60 and eliminate all of the BS? It's got nothing to do with being hardcore/casual. You can be like that dick leveling to 90 on the Panda starting zone...is that hardcore or stupid?

    This is a value proposition. You have to decide whether or not it's for you. My free time not leveling another toon from 1-90 is worth way more than $60 to me in a game I actually want to play.

    Until blizzard officially says what the price is - i would not take anything that "people saw for a few minutes" as final.

    60$ sounds way way way too much, the more realistic price would be around 20$.

    It's still reasonable relative to the time investment.

    More money for developers to develop the game. Someone will pay for new content instead of me. Why not?

    50 hours of game play = level 90

    To the guy who said that 60$ is just 2 hours of work for him - good for you that you live in a normal country and have a normal job. In my country you would have to, on average, work for 30 hours (thirty) or about 15 hours in a VERY WELL paid job, e.g. an experienced PhD lecturer in a university/ a senior engineer in a big corporation.

    Lmao. If you don't enjoy playing the game you're doing it wrong. It's not a job.

    seems about right when you look at the other prices in Blizzard's cash shop

    no way would I get that though, I can buy a brand new game for that much

  15. #215
    The real question is how long to you get to enjoy the "max level" experience before you have to level that $60 toon again?

    60$ makes you think what to buy, and it doesn't have that devestating effect, if boosts where available for 10$ you think anyone would ever level up again and imagine the ques for lowbie dungeons.

    That's the price of all the xpacs. The whole reason for the purchaseable boost was so people didn't have to do a complicated process to get multiple insta 90s

    Why would they charge less for a level 90 character then they charge for a race/faction change? why would they charge less for a level 90 character then the cost of buying the whole game + expansion (WoD) and getting the boost that way.

    60 bucks sound perfectly fine, swiping your card should not be a viable option to leveling.
