    boost a character with XP turned off

    If i have turned off experience on a character can i still boost it to 90 or will it award all the levels but do nothing?
    My weekly podcast can be downloaded here this week The Fappening; jennifer lawrence's private images leaked all over the internet?

    I'm 99.9% sure that it would still be boosted to 90, because there's a difference between getting actual xp and recieving the levels through the boost system.

    You aren't granting exp, you're granting levels. Though it may give warning to spare twink tears.

    Why would you want to do such a thing?

    Probably hoping to get all the 480? gear equipped as low lvl character.
    Quitting WoW is very similar to quitting smoking.

    Easier then most people think, the hard part is not coming back a few weeks later.

    Because twinking is boring and it's not a reflection on skill rather than a reflection on lack of skill. Twinking is only to inflate the ego's of players who lack little to no skill at max level. Why else would someone choose to PvP in a 19/29/39/49 bracket when PvP is balanced around max level and everything serious including titles/mounts is only at max level? If this player was as good as it reflects on their twinks, why wouldn't they push for R1? Oh that's right, it's because they're not quick enough, skilled enough and aware of how to properly play, which is why they create twinks to inflate an imaginary ego. This isn't an assault, I'm just stating the truth because I twinked back in vanilla/TBC... why? Because I sucked at 60/70 PvP and wanted to feel like a god in BG's. I'd strut around on my 29 hunter w/ the STV chain quest gun and i'd blow people up in seconds. Of course I had the helm enchant and all the other proper enchants, so anyone who was just doing a BG for fun had a 0% of killing me regardless of my skill.

    OT:
    The character would still get boosted to level 90 because these levels are coming from an internal system, not through actual experience. But it can't hurt to ease your mind by turning on experience again.

    Man you've got it all figured out don't you? /sarcasm

    Just because you were bad (like you admitted) doesn't mean that others are doing it for that very reason.

    On topic: Like people have said, it's levels, not exp that you'll be getting.

    Big thanks to Yoni for making this Avatar and Signature!

    You'd have to be a pretty big mongoloid to think you'd be able to exploit the system without getting a bann in the end...assuming it would work.

    As someone who has both twinked and also plays at high ratings at max level and has since arenas were introduced, your personal experiences with twinking do not represent all players. Stop acting like they do. It's a fun pastime and some brackets are less balanced than others but a lot of highly skilled players enjoy it. One of my good friends was a r1 gladiator who stopped playing at max level and played his lvl 70 twinks full time because he enjoyed it more. Playing twinks doesn't define you as a player.

    The funny thing is even if this was the case (boosting to try to give a twink the gear) it would all be scaled down to the twinks level. I've noticed that with higher level stuff on my bank toon (maybe it only affects enchants)... I dunno.

    I tried this a few times. It uses up your "boost", but your character stays the exact same level - yet your character's still fully equipped in level 90, 489 ilvl greens. It's amazing, and ensures you're super strong whilst leveling.

    but not really

    Only enchants and gems. Also some bufffood and flask for <60 I think

    The boost occurs in the character screen, not in game. Even with XP off, you will still boost.

    Other than facing other twinks, what challenging/interesting stuff do you would find in a random BG all twinked out vs non-twinks.

    Unless you mean solo the entire other team?

    OT: I have no idea. I would presume that, as others have said, it would just go *POOOF* on the character screen, directly adding levels and not XP, but that's just a guess.

    How have you tried this "a few times"? The boosts are not even available for sale or use until after the pre-orders hit the site.
