Remember when we would shake our heads at people who bought lvl 80 toons on eBay? Now, this.
Are you freaking kidding me??? SERIOUSLY??? This is why I’m glad I don’t play WoW… The process of leveling is how you learn to play your class! This is freaking ridiculous!
I got a free boost for one character to 80 for being hit with a Scroll of Resurrection… As well as a free server/faction change to my friends’ faction/server.
I really don’t like that… I suppose it’s good for Blizzard from a business standpoint… For now at least… They’re really trying to keep their subscribers up since they already lost a TON from cataclysm and are going to be losing a lot more with Mists.
I know I was one wit 4.2…. Which is why I won’t be buying the month to get my friend his mount. TOR is enough for me, even though my playtime there has gone down too.
I’ve just quit playing MMOs all together. Last MMO I played was LOTRO because I wanted to get to Minas Tirith, but I couldn’t at level 1. Everything kills you on the way. Although I am very good at getting places I shouldn’t be able to in MMOs… I crossed the entire world of Silk Road Online at level 10ish… Took me an entire day and had about 50 different people res me.
Sounds like my Vanilla Gnome mage run through Wetlands to get to Darnassus.
Ah… I loved the old days of just running around WoW. Getting killed by everything. And the game used to force you to do that. Like my Warrior quest for Beserker stance… I had to travel through Horde lands, zones 5 levels too high for me, and just getting killed over and over until I made it to the island for my quest. It was the most awesome thing ever. Now you’re encouraged on a rather fixed quest path that doesn’t send you off on crazy suicide quests like that anymore… You can’t even go do other races starting quests anymore.
You still could as of the last time I played. My Worgen went and did the Night Elf starter zone for free rep….
But yeah, I still remember the Warlock epic mount quest. That thing was a monster. Now you just get the damn thing at the trainer.
