No boost for accounts with existing lvl 60, change my mind

Odd, did the forums do a rollback? A few posts (including one of mine) are gone from around 3am on this thread.

Maybe they banned the person I replied to??? Because I know I didn’t get an action on my account of any forum lol.

Watch the Blizzcon stream again, they were extremely clear on the purpose of the boosts.

I’m not talking about blizzcon I specifically asked you what they have said about it. Also, since you seem to have watched it over so much, answer my question, what did they say word for word.

They haven’t said anything about it anywhere but Blizzcon.

So watch it again and stop asking me to tell you what they said.


I’d ask if you feel stupid, but I think that feeling is so common for you that you don’t know how to spot it.


What does that say about why the boost exists?

It’s just addressing something they originally said when Classic was announced.

I’d ask if you feel stupid, but I think that feeling is so common for you that you don’t know how to spot it.

I already explained all your questions above on earlier posts, I’m not really surprised you are literally repeating yourself. Oh never mind you are repeating yourself to pivot away from me making you look stupid.

Edit: also

“It’s for players who want a way to quickly join their friends in Outland.”

Is literally the last sentence in that quote you actual goon

They already went over this entirely during Blizzcon. Watch it again.

I didn’t ask what they said at blizzcon?

Why do you have such a hard on for what they said in blizzcon? Just get to the damn point of what you’re trying to say, boy.

I asked you to tell me what they have said about the boost specifically because what they have said points to the boost being used for players to just jump into tbc with their friends (I just proved you wrong). And not that it is only meant for new players specifically (something you have not been able to prove besides saying “JUST LOOK IT UP BRO”)

You asked for a quote, then ignored the quote and disregard its content…

Because he is an actual moron. He gets proven wrong and instead of admitting he was wrong he pivots to just nonsense gibberish bickering to still convince himself he is somehow winning this argument.

Welcome to my world. I had an almost duplicate argument on another thread. You would be better off finding a potato and arguing with it. At Least when you are done with the potato you can cook it.

Why you have to be mad?

Nice alt post, next time make sure you aren’t in the same guild as the other character you are posting on so it’s not so obvious.

/facepalm. Christ you are stupid

Hate to break it to you but everyone gets a boost with their account.

I have five accounts with five 60s and now I will boost five more for profession alts.

It’s good to be me. :sunglasses:

At OP, pf course a hunter wouldn’t want to change mains going into TBC. But my poorDPS warrior is garbage soon. Melee is dead in TBC. Blizz changed the game so the boost provides me a reason to play a mew toon. Otherwise I would be done. Stop being elitist and let others have fun

If the point of the boost is for new players…yes?

You can get made at people calling out Blizzard’s hypocrisy but at the end of the day they’re championing boosts as the service new players need to stay relevant…while also conveniently letting anyone use it.

The way I see it boosts are Blizzard’s way of recreating expansion purchases since they will be 1 time (likely) $60 purchases and I assume they have some expectation that the bulk of the playerbase will purchase it, not to mention they COULD have bots throwing money at them (we will see how that pans out).

Oh and if Blizzard decides to get on the train of relaunching fresh classic someday 5+ years from now to do it all over again? They’re printing money yo.

Which is not the point of the boost per Blizzard’s explanation making the OP not wrong, you’re just creating your own reasons for what the boost is for or what it allows. That just makes you wrong.

Blizzard has stated that this wasn’t just for new players multiple times, they just said “it’s for people who want to jump into outlands right away with their friends.”

And even specifically stated that they believe classic tbc ‘starts’ at 58. If you disagree with this, that’s fine, the option to level yourself is always there. But this is what they have said.


Boosts are coming no matter how much you cry and try to force others to play the game your way. You are still more than welcome to level if thats your enjoyment so suck it up or quit. Either works

In regards to the post topic, If I like both Classic and TBC, why shouldn’t I be allowed to keep my current 60 locked to a Vanilla only server and boost a 58 on a fresh TBC server? What if I wanted to play a Blood Elf or a Draenei, but they weren’t available till now? Or maybe I didn’t like a class in Vanilla but I loved the changes made to it in TBC?

Here’s what I’ve seen posted (Numbered Bullets) followed by my thoughts (Lettered Bullets):

For Boosts:

  1. Player didn’t like Vanilla content at all and TBC was their bread and butter. That was the content and game that they loved.

  2. Player wants to play one of the new races at end game and has leveled up multiple characters to 60 already. There is no race change either, so then what? Go level again?

  3. Player wants to play with friends in TBC but not Classic.

Against Boosts:

  1. It isn’t keeping with Classic Content, no boosts were in Classic or TBC (Boosts didn’t become a thing in WoW until WoD). To keep it pure this service should not be included.

  2. Boosting == Bad Player; People that boost have no clue how to play their class and just run dungeons and are bad. This slows MY leveling experience and makes the game not as fun.

My personal feelings on this are:
A. (For 1) Don’t gate players that want to play TBC and only TBC behind content they hate to get to what they like. It would be like telling PVE players that hate PVP, “Level 1 through 60 through battlegrounds, go!” Let people play what they like. Just like there were PVE and PVP servers and RP Servers of each type. If you didn’t like world PVP you leveled on a PVE server. It is a different game dynamic and is part of the reason that WoW was successful. If you didn’t like World PVP you could get out of it by playing on a PVE realm, done.

B. (For 2) In regards to the Race option, they could side step this by allowing Race Changes in TBC. The option for Race Changes didn’t come till Wrath though, so this doesn’t sate the purist. Would you consider that less disruptive though? The player DID level the character, they just wanted to play a race that wasn’t available till TBC?

C. (For 3) Single boost addresses this neatly.

D. (Against 1) For the purists, I don’t see anyone forgetting about content creators to get better. I don’t see them only looking for archived copies of WoWhead and Thottbot or looking for old forum posts to read through regarding how to get good. Everyone is still looking at YouTube Videos for boss tactics which used to be closely guarded secrets by most guilds until people started opening up to share them. People would share how to play your class information and what is expected of you as X class, but there were not many cohesive tactic topics for End Game Bosses. That isn’t to say that this is a wrong way to play, just that your way of play isn’t for everyone.

E. (Against 2) Boosting != bad player. I hate this mentality because everyone is still going to go online and find a content creator that talks about how to play a class at high level, the dynamic shifts as spells and abilities are added. And if you ARE a content creator that is against this, are you saying you aren’t going to create content on how to play the class anyway? I’m not even sure I’ve seen a content creator mention down ranking spells to save mana and only use the full power (and mana cost) if/when needed… It isn’t as bad as other games, but in the end, you still have to relearn how to play your class at end game. You also have to tune gear and spec as well. (Elitest Jerk Posts anyone? There are archived threads with this info still.)

F. For anyone that wants to talk about being Hardcore, Level from 1 using nothing better than grays the entire way and enjoy your bragging rights. I consider it to be silly, but if that is what you find fun, enjoy. I’m not going to stop you, but I’m also not going to say it makes you a better player. You might have to optimize your abilities, or you might sacrifice fighting mobs at proper level to achieve it. In the end it is how you wanted to spend your time.

G. In regards to “Pretending to be Hardcore”, do you really think people aren’t going to find a way to cheese the system and then claim to be hardcore? There were people developing bots to play the game for you to get to end game back during Vanilla, TBC, and Wrath. Or willing to pay for leveling services to get to end game to skip this content. I’d rather there be a 1 time boost period or even paid boosts to the developers.

H. The case for Boosting in Beta - It allows more testers to get to the current content that should be getting tested with a variety of classes to help test fully as opposed to having a game that has a good solid start and then crappy end game.
