It's been made painfully clear lately that people seem to take issue with a boost that would bring your character within 10 levels of level cap. When WoD goes live, the Blizz shop will begin selling these paid boosts for $60. This is not a newsflash, just a reiteration. A lot of the fuss seems to be that players will fail to know their role and learn their class within 10 levels, essentially the journey from 90 to 100.
This got me thinking. If instantly bypassing leveling content, and not playing until you are within 10 levels of cap is seen as questionable, I wonder how many SoR and RaF players are ostracized. I mean, in real terms, you had to find a friend, they had to buy the battle chest and/or current expansion, and they (or you) were given 80 levels instantly. Most likely while standing still and doing nothing at all.
I wonder how many RaF and SoR characters were persecuted for "skipping" content and only getting to know their character in the last 10 levels. Have you ever used, or been the recipient of SoR or RaF? Have you been treated differently for skipping old world content and only questing/dungeoning for the last 10 levels of your character?
