- Warning - 110 boost for rocket


#1

Today they announced that you will need to be 110+ to receive the love rocket.
Last year they announced it was 100+.
Do NOT buy a boost for an extra chance.

Last year about a week after the announce they raised the boost level from 100 to 110. If you buy a boost before event and they raise the level a week later you will have paid for service that is getting improved by 10 levels in about 6 days.

They will NOT bump up your level to the new boost if you put in a ticket. They will suggest you buy another one on the same character though… Last year I was baited by this announce. Just a heads up.

I seriously doubt that Blizzard is going to sell 120 character boosts less than a year into the expansion. That happens after the new expansion has been announced and gone on preorder.


(Etros) #3

No one buys boosts for love rocket chances and we are not getting 120 boosts for around a year


(Muiria) #4

well im sure plenty do. thats the sad state of instant gratification age group


#5

A lot of mount collectors will, I had 22 characters that where eligible for the rocket last year, but I bought a boost for an additional chance.


#6

Anyone have that post about the guy who bought like 15 account all with maxed out character slots only to be whammy’d by blizz with the new requirements


(Kypookins) #7

Yeah, that is kind of a conspiracy theory for what was just a coincidence.

The timing was just right, at that time, to have the higher boost.


#8

Are you well?

Boost level increases have always come with expansion pre-patch releases. We know there are at least two more patches coming (8.1.5 and 8.2) and probably more after that.

This is a non-issue.

I can’t believe anyone would do this. I have like 20 110s and I rarely even bother taking one in there because the drop rate is so low I feel like I am wasting my time.


(Huntillia) #10

People buy level boosts just to increase their chances of getting that mount?


(Annastasi) #11

While I wouldn’t do it, and I don’t think it’s a widespread reason people buy boosts, People have been farming this mount for 15 years. Someone boosting a character for extra chances is hardly a sign of chasing instant gratification.


(Muiria) #12

sure its not a main reason but also cant say noone would or does. people buy anything and everything. not everyone does or even thinks about it. but people do.

though i buy tokens for gold ro play for free thats its. it supports thoose people who buy the tokens to sell. :thinking:


#13

An entire guild just spent 90 million gold to get some ilvl 400 gear to try to snag a world first raid clear. Anything is possible these days.


(Tovi) #14

I don’t. I leveled all 30-something of my toons the old way.

Edit: Well… I had to use my boost that come with the xpacs on something so I do have a couple of boosted toons.


#15

If they earned their gold/money, who cares how they spend it. It is theirs, Not Yours.


(Hamstar) #16

A guild that has RL, real money sponsors.


(Leafblight) #17

Is it rare? I had 2 drop in a run i did and it was kinda ugly so i ignored it.

I̶t̶’̶s̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶r̶a̶r̶e̶s̶t̶ ̶o̶b̶t̶a̶i̶n̶a̶b̶l̶e̶ ̶m̶o̶u̶n̶t̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶g̶a̶m̶e̶.̶

I mean the second rarest. I forgot that gladiator mounts still hold that title.


(Leafblight) #19

Interesting. Maybe i’ll try this year.

Just Google “strikethrough.” There’s websites out there that will do it for you.
