    It's not cheating, because it's available to everyone and provided by Blizzard.

    It's probably pay to win depending on how you define this.

    Blizzard makes the Rules for the game, it is not up to anyone else to decide what "Cheating" is.

    The LevelBoots also follows its rules. You can for example not Boost to MaxLevel.

    This is also the same as the AccountSharing ToS breach. You are not allowed to buy/sell Services/Items ingame with Real money.

    This is not neccessarily because they "dont Profit" from it, but to at least the same amount to protect the users from Scams and AccountLoss.
    (It Happens)

    What is or is not Cheating is determined by the Rules and not the Userbase. Oo
    Overall this is is rather odd thread if I think about it.
    The point you make is technically correct of course - how can it be cheating if the very company that sets the rules allows you to do it. In my view its more of a case that Blizzard are "allowing" you to cheat providing you pay them. I do not consider real life money or the shop part of the in game world and as such should not influence it. Its not fair to everyone else who plays the game properly and causing a conflict of interest for Blizzard.

    Taking this to its natural conclusion, buying gear, access to powerful classes, I win buttons or Bots if on sale from the shop wouldn't be cheating either.

    Yeah but legit players like you suffer thought with expensive pots. At some point legit players should realize that cheaters are the ones least complaining about the prices of pots...
    its insane how much gold i spend and farmed this expansion even more then in legion i know that blizzard wants to remove gold out of the game but this dont hurts the rich gold moguls in wow i think its to late for blizzard to go this route but yeah i am on a point where my time i spend on farming is more then i raid and i slowly realize hey why should i do this its not worth the time or rl money would be better to stop mythic raiding i am not sure atm anymore

    Honestly I couldn't care less about the issue of 'cheating'. World firsts? High Warlord/Grand Marshal? Gladiator? Who cares.

    It's a game people. If you get famous playing it, good on you, but otherwise it's just a game.
    It is definitely just a game.

    Having a larger amount of gold literally changes you starts which is then used to buy boosts or items which literally change your stats.
    Let us spare a moment to remember Demasiados who took one for the team in the name of finding facts.

    It's only "cheating" if you and another person are doing a race to see who's the fastest to reach max level and buying leveling boosts is against the arbitrary rules you two agreed upon for said 'race'.

    An NPC that could be a potential class. Yes.

    Until otherwise indicated, that would be the indication.

    Yes, because being lvl 110 with 177 gear is a HUGE threat to a 120 with 390 ilvl.
