    1) Many players never play the endgame content, and do not want to. To them, the "actual game" is levelling. I would say both modes are.

    2) You could say the same about raiding: "Raiding is about throwing garbage in your way to make you play longer before you get to the actual loot." Reality is, the game is about progression. Being stronger than you once were. Paying to skip that is not only cheating the system, but also cheating yourself out of the sense of progression.

    No, never. It kills the Point of playing the game.

    There is a huge market for boosting both for gold and cash on the biggest servers in today's WoW, and those same people buying boosts today will be playing classic. So of course people are going to be buying boosts (and gold!!) on the classic servers, regardless of what you are reading here.

    Modern WoW I agree leveling is pointless since everything is scaled to your level anyway and we actually lost abilities and traits as we leveled up instead of progressing.

    Also, its against ToS, there is no room for discussion, if you do it, or pay for it, you should be perma banned on both classic and live.
    Way to not answer the OP's question and simply go on a rant. You rock buddy.

    I'd easily pay $200 for it, providing they leave all the gold and professions are included.

    As I recall, people would often call out and label people whom were suspected of buying accounts. I hope that continues and that everyone involved gets banned. If users rapidly change region between distant points in the world it should be easy enough to track.

    Eastern Europe countries mostly. They got cheap shit over there, so the sallaries are according to it, which is why a lot of them come to Scandinavia to work and send all their money to their family back home. As a normal sallary here is like 2-3k/month.


    To the OP.
    I remember I bought a level boost back in Vanilla, 57-60 or something and think I paid like 20 bucks for it. 1-60 I'd probably pay 200 for at top. But I wont, got other priorities this time around, with a family and shit to take care of.


    Also leveling in Vanilla/Classic is far more fun than it is in Retail, and anyone who buys a boost just cheats them self out of a lot of fun to be honest.

    So you've never bought or sold a WoW Token? Ever? Or done anything of the sort in any online game?

    I have ZERO issues paying for things that save me time. I've paid for Boosts in other games, gold, etc. If I can buy it with one hour of pay/work, what takes me 12-24 hours to do in my personal time, bet your ass I'd do it.

    Actually no i havent. I prefer to pay for the sub. But you're not event talking about the same lvl of stuff, tokens and boosts in live are offered by blizz themselves, in a version of the game has a absolutely horrific leveling experience and is all about being max lvl and the end game.

    Even so, i'm a fanatic when it comes to these things because im a firm believer that they mess up the economy of the realms far too much and this is a aspect of the game i value greatly.

    If it was cheaper and legal I'd defenitly do it. To me, WoW has ALWAYS been about endgame. Leveling has just been a chore from vanilla to BFA.

    Actually food/water/electricity/other bills here are pretty much the same as they are everywhere else across Europe, only rent/housing/etc is cheaper, pretty much thats why UK/Nordics is full of Baltic/Romanian/etc immigrants, cuz pay/living conditions is much higher/better.

    After the you level your 'main' normally and if you want to actually pay money for a leveling service, power to you. Otherwise, what the hell's the point? Durr, let's play classic again so I can not actually play. Sounds stupid. Just play on a private server and get your instant 60's and epic gear if that's the experience you want.

    EDIT: For full disclosure, I did actually pay someone to camp Arcturis for me. I think it was a d2jsp thing though.

    Considering leveling a char in vanilla is about month's worth of work, I don't see any issue here.

    Why the hell would I pay money to not play a game I'm paying a subscription for?

    Occasionally I would run into people in the real world who played WoW, this was back during Vanilla ofcourse, and they would tell me about how they were some level below 60 and how they did some dungeon one night or whatever. They would eventually ask about my character, and I would explain to them that I was level 60 and they would think that was boring because I had no more levels to gain or spells to learn, which I always responded the same way, the game begins at level 60.

    This may seem like I’m agreeing with you, but I’m not. During Vanilla WoW, there were essentially two games, the game while leveling and the game of raiding. To describe it as throwing shit in your way to waste time is simply a reductionist view which applies to everything.
