    Time has no price. It's one of many things you can never get refunded, like your life before kids or HIV, so it's invaluable. This is a steal for the price for those that want to save themselves a couple of weeks without neckbeard play times.

    Please raise your hand if you have a job (or don't think $60 is a lot of money for what's being offered...).

    P.S. I have at least 10 90s last I checked so yes I've been there.
    I thought it should have been a dollar per level. SO $90 is what I would have paid.

    $60 is well worth being able to skip mope content. I would have paid more.

    Plus, this isn't supposed to be a "deal" that everyone jumps on. It's supposed to be a convenience thing that very few individuals will spend money on.

    It's probably placeholder price because that's insane. It's cheaper afaik to buy a new game up to MoP and RaFing or for those who have a full roster of 90s but want one on the opposing faction to faction AND server transfer. hell I might have used it to lvl a horde too that in the 80s and would rather put up with chuging along than pay $60.

    The pricing of $60 makes complete sense. Let's look at opportunity cost for Blizz for one moment.

    My entire guild decides we are moving servers and going alliance. What is my out of pocket expense currently? I believe $25 for the server xfer and $30 for the faction change (correct me if i'm wrong)

    If they were to offer the Boost to 90 for $25. It would make 0 sense for me to pay to move my original character. I could just get a fresh one for half the price.

    Same here. I was thinking more on the lines of paying 90$ and was ready too. Glad it's cheaper..

    I can RAF myself to 85 in 1 day and spend $10 so i dont see how this price makes sense. On day 3, I can be level 90 and have only invested $10 on a separate slave account. This is actually what I did last week to get 6 85's took me 6 days.

    We're arguing about this in a place filled with people who believe Blizzard can do no wrong and who will gladly eat up whatever garbage the company spews onto their plates. It's futile, let them have their $60 level 90s. You can protest with your wallets and elsewhere, but you can't win here.

    This right here.

    I was thinking it would be in the range of $35-$40 range. Just seems a a tiny bit overpriced.

    This makes the most sense to me, it's so expensive because if it were cheaper it would devalue the other paid services

    What the company spews we have a choice to eat or not.

    This time they spewed $60 character boosts.

    Some will partake in eating it up, some won't.

    Per. Fucking. Usual.

    60 dollars for a full boost is more than fine, stop making a while storm of it.

    1.: You select ANY server you want to be on.
    2.: Any race.
    3.: Any Class.
    4.: 483 green gear (which is much better than any newly levelled char).
    5.: You take a shortcut through all content.

    60 dollars are nothing when you look at the fact of you can place these 60 dollars investment on any server you like - and not even think of racechange/factionchange/serverchange

    And of course you wont get professions (unless you boost a lvl 60+ char) but really, this is just a kindergarden when people start expecting even more. Note to all, takes 1 week (7 days) as a casual to go from 1 to 90 and get above 483 ilvl,

    4) Transfer character to new account for 25

    It would cost a ton more. Surely they won't make the separate service much cheaper?
    Why would you buy WoD on an account that you just want to raf on? I'm sure most people would just buy the battlechest, level to 90, and just do 85-90 themselves. 85-90 takes pretty much no time anyway. So at most you're looking at 35 dollars, assuming you're not trying to get the rocket. I think in the one month I did raf with my buddy, I got 4 new 90s? and we didn't even really set aside a lot of time to level, just whenever we were both on. We could have easily done all classes if we actually tried to.

    I don't plan on buying any boosts personally, I only need rogue/mage to have all classes at 90. 60 bucks though? That's honestly way overpriced. Logically it should either be cheaper, or just as expensive to raf and get chars. I mean really, why would I spend 60 bucks instead of just doing raf? the convenience? I'm assuming they'll adjust the price, because if they don't, they're implementing a feature a lot of potential buyers will just scoff at.

    You're welcome, sir.

    The pricing seems to suggest that the feature only really got implemented to avoid the situation with people buying additional copies just to get a a free 90 boost. This is so expensive that most people probably won't use it (not complaining, just an observation)..

    No Scroll of Resurrection is. They don't want people handing out scrolls to folks who would be returning anyway for the new expansion.
