Who cares about 90s boosts? It doesn't affect your game in any way.

Leveling never was an effective way to learn one's class anyway, and with the current super-easy questing it hardly even teaches you the basics. If some people want to pay 60$ to avoid it, let them.


"Who cares about 90s boosts? It doesn't affect your game in any way. "

Well this is just simply not true.

..Im just expecting the other 24 people to have some knowledge of rotation,mechanics etc,which a lot of these insta 90's don't have,so no our skill & abilities are not the same...just as peoples brain power is not the same.


You expect a lot from others when you don't even have 5% hit.

It's becoming my pet peeve when people think they are so much better than their peers in lfr and closer inspection reveals they can't even get the basics right themselves.


Its becoming my pet peeve that apparently nobody on here is allowed an opinion on anything unless their gear is 100%,hahaha its pretty sad really that you couldnt just read the forums & had to go hunting through everyones profile to find something to pick them up on

Why not? I can solo 5 mans, so whether the other 4 are on par or not doesn't matter, I don't PvP and I rarely do Raidfinder.

Free tip next time you going to have a nasty attitude on here on those that do lfr posting on a lvl 80 alt wont help if you not hide your achievements, cause clearly you main does normals and some hc and doesnt need lfr at all.

Here's a free tip for you.

I am unable to post on my main due to Blizzard screwing up. It's become a known issue that some players are unable to select the character they want to post as, most likely due to screw ups with connected realms (such as Aggramar).

And I don't run LFR with my main, it serves no purpose, I run it with alts as dull and tedious as it is, it's the only viable way to gear without turning to pvp which I dislike.

The end result is still a cake, but it's a cake with meaning, this cake is your own EFFORT this cake is YOURS, without YOU this cake wouldn't EXIST. It's tailor-made to YOU, you molded that cake into what it is today knowhatImsayin'?


The cake is a lie !
It's fun to wreck the new 90 in bg's though

Speaking for me, personally, it's not about whether they know their spell priority. Before the free 90's we already had people who had no clue of how to dps/heal/tank, or what their class was about. We'll notice a lot more of those now with 90's being boosted, sure, but it's nothing new.

What really bothers me is how obnoxious some of these people are. It's fine if they don't know how to play, how a boss works, or what that bg is about. It is. Someone can explain it to them, or they can learn over time. They may get better, eventually. The problem for me is those people who outright refuse to even try and improve. I've had plenty of those already in both hc's, cm's and lfr's. And in some of those cases I did try to help them, point out what could maybe be wrong, how a certain tactic worked, why you should use spell "x" instead of "y". And most of the time after I did that I was pinpointed as a "trashy wannabe hero in crappy gear" discriminating against boosted 90's so I could feel better about myself. Mind you I tried not to sound bossy, was just giving tips.

But yet again, this already existed before boosted 90's. Only difference is that now these players have a new excuse to throw around. So really this is not a problem about the service blizzard is providing, it's about the players. As it usually is.
Because the system isn't balanced around people who haven't had an extra ten levels to learn their new booted 90 and entering raid finder without decent heroic gear. The system is, in theory, meant to be for people who have boosted but they've had all of WoD's levelling content to get to grips with their class and be at least somewhat aware of how to properly use it.

Instead, because the system was released early as a pre-order bonus we're getting people flooding content in naff gear not having a clue what to do. But since this isn't going to be happening in the long term I don't see Blizzard doing anything. On the bright side it means that by the time we're all Level 100 this issue should have hopefully evaporated some.
They should've stuck with the one lvl 90 boost in the WoD pack. This would've been a great way to appeal to old and new players.

But making it a shop item seems so.. weird to me.

I don't even understand why people would waste money on that in the first place..

Just play the game people.. That's what it is after all.
Hmm i think Blizz is hitting the spot were it hurts.
I know ppl who pay 80 euro's back in the cata days to get a chinese dude leveling the chars for them.
Now the gold sellers need to find a new way to get to money of of them ppl.

People are entering content with characters they don't know how to play well, they will learn
I believe the problem lies much more in the fact, that people used to raid normal/heroics (and rarely maybe doing Garrosh flex for a shot on heirloom) are now getting into LFR which was already horrible before this feature and now is just several inches worse. The funny fact is that LFR ToT is usually much better than SoO because people doing that one are on the legendary quest and they are usually overgeared (it's not uncommon to see people several people above 250-300k dps) while you'll have a hard time spotting someone above 100k in SoO LFR which means you're going to hit enrage timer.

The problem with LFR is not people "not knowing they class/spec". It's basically what's described in this article: http://danieljmitchell.wordpress.com/2011/11/16/does-socialism-work-a-classroom-experiment/ . And ye, you can also spot a lot of similarities (e.g. blaming each other and so on)
great idea
I have no issues with Lv90 Boost. It was beneficial to me.
I did level the character I boosted to 60 first, in order to get profession boost as well.

The only people that may "improperly use" the boost are new players, who should be leveling normally to learn their class/spec, instead of being overwhelmed by dozens of skills in the blink of an eye.

So I think the level 90 Boost should only be available to someone who owns a level 90.

If you disagree and think insta-90's are positive then please tell me why.


Love it. Already lvled 5 chars to 90 and its such a grind I would never do it again. And honetsly lets stop kidding ourselves this game isnt really that hard. If you played any character at lvl 90 for a sufficient amount of time, odds are youll pick up the new class with ease as well. A whole lotta drama and complaints for nothing as far as im concerned
Level 90 boosts are fine I think. I mean, I just started to play and have the opportunity/chance to play as a level 90 now/soon, but I won't. I want to understand my character better and understand the role better. So I think playing from 0-90 is the best thing for me to do, to see everything and really build a back story/RP for my character. But, meh, if people wanna jump in at 90, hope they have fun.
From a new player's prospective this boost is a blessing.
From my prospective, busy with study, etc and not wanting to re-level another character from scraps and count endless hours in doing something I don't really enjoy at all it's even better. I understand the complete frustration of people going in LFR without knowledge of their class and even gear. But that doesn't mean that those people won't get better, that in the long run it won't balance itself out. I think this was an amazing move from Blizzard, a god-sent for those who have little time to exp all over. We now have months before the new expansion hits and that allows for all players to gear up, experiment new classes and things they couldn't have done before and in the end once WoD hits the 90's boost won't matter much.
I understand that too many people take this game too seriously and obviously feel that they always need to clear content or else kick. I think this is a game and it should be balanced out that players, both new and old, should be able to help each other and learn.
Either way this feature is amazing and in the long run it will work out. For those who are now panicking just see this as a chance to relive past moments or try it out yourself...

Thats a bit like saying it would not matter who won or lost the war 60 yrs ago, but your right, for most of us things would stay the same......but for those living at the time it was really important
They should have waited and made the boosts available when the level cap was raised, not several months beforehand. That way players could boost to 90, and learn how to play their class while leveling to cap, not at it. This would, hopefully, present a smoother learning curve that would reduce the amount of failure that affects larger groups of people (LFR, BGs etc).

Don't come on the forums sporting common sense! It doesn't sit well with either the forum population or the high and mighty. It's useless! Go away and come back when you're ready to troll!

In short - you made sense...

Either that or release them now - but to 85.
Its hilarious how people actually love and pay for the boost. Its a complete joke. This game does not require any effort anymore. Its also funny how they place a shop button everywhere just so you spend your money. The least they can do it lower the monthly cost.
