    Timeless Isle and Karasang Wilds both have mobs that quickly spawn and offer great experience for leveling players. If you group with a fully decked out SoO player they can kill the mobs super fast. And these locations also have fast respawn times on those mobs leading to very little downtime. You tag the mobs, they kill them. There is also a location in Townlong that has a rare as well as quick spawning mobs.

    Just because you don't know how to do it doesn't mean it can't be done. You can do 80-85 in about 30 mins (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLIcBqHwmBY).

    unless you enjoy the actual process of leveling, which alot of people do.

    And are those people the target audience for the payed 90 boost service? I think you know the answer to that.

    I think for $60, I would just like it to come already riding trained up to 280 with cold/old/panda. Or at least 150 with the cold/old/panda. It is very easy for a new alt to pay its own way with riding skill just from questing/vendoring. Boost 90s won't have that.

    Paid Boost to 90 is not marketed at people with no mains. It's target demographic are people who have already leveled up multiple 90s and do not want to level up yet another time through content they have already seen 4 or 5 times.

    It is not marketed at people creating their very first character. Blizzard still wants those people to play through leveling content. And if they are despreately wanting to skip content to get directly to the new stuff to play with their friends, that is what the Free 90 boost that comes with WoD is for.

    It is not marketed at returning people who want to boost a 70 or 80 toon to 90 so they can quickly join their buddies in new content. That is what the Free 90 that comes with WoD is for.

    The Paid 90 Boost exists with the implied understanding that when you boost a character to 90 you are doing so specifically to fast track it, and have an existing main or friends standing by to cover your expenses like flying skill costs or catching up with professions.

    Bad example is bad.

    Its like you paid monthly for mobile limited internet on your phone, then you pay more for them to spend all limit to zero, because you arent bothered to do it yourself.

    It isn't a bad example at all. It is a subscription base service that offers extra things that are not included in your subscription for an extra fee. Plenty of businesses and services do it. They are accepted as doing it and not thought less of because they do it. It only seems that certain people object when it comes to games and only Blizzard/WoW.

    I just think it's dumb because people won't even know why they're level 90, or what they are fighting for. Questing actually tells you the story of why you are level 90 now and why you are fighting these things.

    Going to 90 then 95 then raiding you are going to be A) annoyed by the 5 lvls infront of you B) unaware of why you care about those 5 levels C) not sure why you are fighting these fights and D) you wont know anybody which i guess is a lesser problem in the LFR/LFD days.

    I always liked questing cause you found out things about the world, met interesting people and got to know your own character as well.

    I will probably not even use my 90 free boost, too bad I can't sell it for 4 months of WoW time.

    Damn, don't you wish that after 1370 posts there was a poll in this thread. Personally I'd only be interested in the two answers:

    -I am a subbed player and will unsub because there is a lv 90 boost (no matter if free or paid)
    -I am an unsubbed player and will sub due to the lv 90 boost (no matter if free or paid)

    The guy you quoted brought a valid example. Your example preeetttyyyy much made clear you are grasping at straws and make up the most convoluted situations imaginable.

    So, in short: the internet.

    $60 is a bit ridiculous, but I won't complain because if it was $40, more people would abuse it and that would ruin ques for low level questing. Not only would ques become incredibly long, but world PvP would be dead since it would be scarce to run into another opposing fraction player. Blizzards intent wasn't to add this for $60 bucks thinking people would deal with it and still buy it... they put it that high because they know that if people abuse it, it would do more damage than good. People wanted to be able to skip content, blizzard gave them that option and now that it's not at a price low enough to use multiple times, people are now pissy. Deal with it because it ain't going to change.

    Most likely the wisest Enhancement Shaman.

    Woow, you arent even checking what you are posting. But even if it still worked today, you would need another player to go out of his way to level you, and to farm up a 300% elixir. (which would take more time than just leveling 80-85 yourself.)


    Maybe I can do things athene style. 1-90, get 40 people to kill mobs I tagged, while I have a RAF dude next to me, while im decked out in every heirloom possible with the darkmoon fairy and summer event exp buffs on while I have the monk 50% buff on. This is all happening while I have a 300% elixir on, and I have RAF dudes switching in and out as I outlevel them.

    That seems like something the other 99% of people are doing.

    Just because you don't know how to do it, doesn't mean it can't be done. You can do 1-90 in about 30 mins.

    Believe me, it will be as much abused as if it was $40 or 25. If they really wanted to limit that, they could have added cooldown.

    It's weird because it is well worth the $60 mark of leveling a character to 90. However, if the price was at $20, everyone would be calling that price "wow Blizzard, GG, pay2win even more", "I can't believe wow has become such a huge cashcow for them to actually do this".

    So far, I wonder if anyone has actually used the boost to 90 feature.

    Let me hop in my time machine, jump ahead to when WoD is actually released, and get back to you on that.

    I was always talking about having someone power level you, and not you doing it your self solo. I'm not sure what you were reading but you seem to have gotten that fact confused at some point. It is still possible, even now, to level faster then you are saying by having someone help you. You may call it garbage, but it doesn't mean it isn't possible. Or that some methods were not previously possible.

    If this were true, Blizz never... EVER... would have offered a free boost with the Xpac, nor would it have one for sale. Delusion is a terrible thing.

    Well, when the pre-orders hit, and they are available in the shop, you should get curious again. I guarantee the DAY THEY HIT THE SHOP this forum, and others like it will EXPLODE with Pay-to-Win threads filled with OPs who will be talking out of their asses and really pissed that their wallets cannot keep up with others.

    Why do people so often think that its a matter of wallets keeping up? I would NEVER spend $60 on a boost to 90 in an old, spent mmo when there are so many other games out there to play that cost so little. Its like ordering a $60 big mac from mcdonalds. I'm in my 30's, dual high income, no kids...doesn't mean I would be willing to spend $60 on anything in wow.
