    WoW.... Blizzard really cant wait to rake in that cash.

     

    So if you preordered WOD, you still gotta pay $60 or do you get to use your free 90?

    *Sighs*

    I was leveling with my friend in the last few days, having an absolute blast with him. Now he's going to get the instant 90 and I am left behind, unless i wish to pay 60$USD for the service :/ Uh no thanks. Guess I'll be leveling the old fashioned way lol

    Primary Professions bumped up to 600 if you're 60 or above? O_O

    Pretty certain if you pre purchased WoD, it Includes the Level 90 Character Boost that you can use instantly.

    Good question. I think that the expansion comes with a free 90. It's just that if you pre-order (when available) you get instant access to the free 90 instead of waiting for the retail release date.

    Then if you wanted more 90s you fork over $60 per.

    Considering how quickly you can level now I really don't see a big problem. It'd be completely different if took months to level cap like it used to. Jeez, how fast is it now? Couple weeks? If someone wants to give Blizzard $60 to bring another level 90 to the game full of a bajillion level 90s who cares at this point.

    There's nothing special about having level capped characters anymore so big whoopty do. More money in Blizzard's pockets means more money they can spend on the games you enjoy is my opinion.

    As spiteful of a move that is, i can only cry in solitude for all the poor sods that are actually going to pay for it... and i know there will be THOUSANDS...

    If i ever had any hope for 'humanity', now it's finally all shriveled to nothing and same can be said for the company.

    World of Warcraft, a game where you:

    - Pay to Play

    - Pay to enjoy content

    - And now, Pay to skip content

     

  • eye_meye_m Notta Chance, ABPosts: 3,133Member Uncommon
    so, if I buy the game, and all the subsequent expansions and then pay my subscription fee to be able to play, I can now pay more to not have to play?

    All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

    I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.

    I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

    I can see putting them straight onto the Timeless Isle being a very bad idea.  For those that don't know, the Timeless Isle is pretty much the ganking capital of WoW right now.  You use a bloody coin and turn yourself into a player killer for rewards, its not even avoidable on PvE servers or against players of your own faction.

    Also the mobs in the Timeless Isle are not very forgiving to undergeared or new players, although I suppose they already have their $60, so it probably doesn't matter if they rage quit.

    Is the instant 90 thing tradeable? I ask because I would never use mine if I had one.

     

    Why would I want to "avoid repeating content" from leveling just to get another lvl 90 to...repeat lvl 90 content...

    Because why grind levels when you can grind endgame

    With this we can probably safely scratch blizzard off the list of most beloved developers. I cant really motivate myself to even care about project Titan with this crap announcement.
  • HomituHomitu Hometown, HIPosts: 2,030Member
    lmao, this is a real thing?  I mean I can understand offering a level boost to somewhere near max level for an upcoming expansion in a game that's been out for a decade, but implementing it as a chargeable service?  That's absurd to me.  Especially the price. For something that costs them a fraction of 1 cent to execute...

    Why grind end-game which will inevitably become, well, not end-game after the next expansion? Just pay them to do it for you!

    bleh takes what 2-4 weeks to max level ? 1 if your playing 24/7.

    I dont like this, but i dont really see it effecting many people, Shitty move but blizzard sold out a longggggg time ago.

  • PpiperPpiper Horsham, PAPosts: 648Member Uncommon
    the standard pre-order is $50 and you do get a free boost to 9o now. I'm going to wait until the Xpac releases and then play my current 90. Too many good games on the horizon to insta boost into Timeless Isle, I hate that place.

    reading the reddit comments - yes

    can get 2 primary professions bumped from skill 1 to 600 if you are level 60-89

     

    level 90 chars seem ineligible to buy the boost -- for tradeskills alone

  • R.LimaR.Lima BrasPosts: 116Member Uncommon
    What's the reasoning behind the $50 price tag on the expansion? All of Blizzard's expansions have cost $40 until this.
  • MechanismMechanism Toronto, ONPosts: 115Member Uncommon

    Looking on the bright side this will hopefully help people to burn out on WoW a little faster and that's probably for the best.

    I used to think this would also make one more step towards a FTP WoW but I can't even think of any FTP games that sell level boosts like this and people expect that worst outa them.

  • GinazGinaz Calgary, ABPosts: 1,731Member Uncommon
    Some of you people need to calm your tits.  I would suspect most of those that will do this already have at least 1 character that is max level (probably 3 or more).  I've leveled every class to at least 72, 3 of which are 90, so if I were to do this I would be missing out on nothing content wise.  I'll never pay $60 for a service like this because I think the price is WAY too high ($20-$30 would be ok) and getting to 90 really isn't all that hard or long (hehe).  However, now that I've seen all the bitching and moaning from people who most likely don't play WoW, I hope Blizzard makes a fortune from this just piss them off.
