Some days back it was discovered that Blizzard would, in fact, be offering an insta-90 boost for $60. This is in addition to the boost that will come with the Warlords of Draenor expansion. Whether it will be available before the expansion is anyone’s guess. Naturally there has been some discussion as to what the value of the boost is, whether it’s “pay to win” and so on.

Goblin with a pile of gold wants to get leveled, now. My view is that it’s cool. People constantly complain about leveling and how long it takes to get to 90 (and soon, 100.) Especially if what they really want to do it get into the end-game stuff. I recently rolled new characters on a new server because that’s where a friend was hanging out. An insta-boost to 90 there would be great, considering that I don’t have a ton of time these days.

$60 will be a barrier for many and it’s likely a bit less than buying a whole new account and all of the expansions. Besides, you save a trip to the store and you get your extra 90s on one account and one server, esp. if you’re nicely set up on that server.

I expect they will get a fair number of takers. Heck, there are people buying multiple accounts already for use with Recruit a Friend or Multi-boxing. I’ve heard of several who multi-boxed ten accounts, and rumors of some who did many more.

I asked the question “How Fast Did You Level?” in a G+ World of Warcraft Community. (Here it is. If you’re on G+ you can join that community here.) I have received some interesting responses, such as getting from 1-90 in 23 hours (or less.) That’s rather mind boggling to me, so I asked and received some details. Here is what I was told:

  • I farm the elixirs of wisdom ( +300% xp ) and I do not use RaF. (These Elixirs are going to take some time to farm.)
  • LvL 1-10 took about 22 minutes with heirlooms and the guild bonus.
  • 10-18 took 20 minutes from soloing RFC.
  • 18-25 took 14 minutes doing Shadowfang Keep + dungeon quests.
  • 25-30 speed leveled through Northern Stranglethorn
  • 30-35 went down to the Cape of Stranglethorn
  • 35-40 went to Western Plaguelands
  • 40-45 still in Western Plaguelands
  • 45-50 went to Badlands

Zygor sale sept 10

What is it? Zygor Guide 5.4 is an n in-game level guide which will blast you through the quests ASAP, regardless of your experience or gear. You’ll never wonder where to go or what to do and you’ll hit 90 very quickly.

Why now?  It’s their 50% off sale in honor of their patch 5.4 updates, but it only lasts for a few days.

Where is it? Go here, now. And there really is a timer on their website. When it hits zero the sale is over.

The longer version: Zygor guide 5.4 is an in-game addon that will take your through the quests, for any race or class, as quickly as possible, and it’s fully updated for patch 5.4. You’ll take the most efficient route and skip everything that you don’t need (unless you want Loremaster, then it will help you do all those quests.) It’s also smart enough to know your level and your location. If you’re leveling quickly (eg: lots of rest XP,) or you level up a few levels in the dungeons or PvP, Zygor will “see” your new level and tell you the best place to go next. It even gives you a way to dump the old quests.

You’ll never find yourself cruising around in an area that’s too low or too high for you. It even has a difficulty setting in the options, so if you want things a bit tougher or less tough, just click a button.

Ironman Druid with White Gear

style=”background-color: black;” My New White Gear!

People are always complaining that WoW is too easy, with the gear, the leveling nerfs, etc. It used to take about 6 days to get to 60, if you were fast and efficient and knew your way around the place. Now it’s about the same to 85. These days we have Heirloom gear, Guild perks, Recruit a Friend, easy availability of quality gear (blues and purples,) etc. I like it, and it’s certainly much easier to level than it used to be.

This post if for all of you who want a challenge. Think of the Diablo game’s Hardcore mode and you’ll have some idea.

Found this on the EU forums, via Facebook:

…Have a suggstion to anyone thinking of givng it a go. Throw dice to decide your Race/Class choice and randomise for looks. Then keep us updated as to progress 🙂

“Some people complain WoW is too easy. Well, for people who want a challenge, take part in the Iron Man Challenge! I came across a thread from someone named Sandinhiseye about this, and it was fairly old. So, rather than necro it, I’m making a new thread. Taken from his thread, here are the rules:”

1) No items equipped other than White or Gray items.
2) No heirlooms
3) No talent points – no specialization – you may train class abilities
4) No professions, primary or secondary, other than First Aid.
5) No food or water above vendor-quality white items.
6) No groups- no BG’s, no instances, no raids, no quest groups. No guilds.
7) No enchants, scrolls, potions/elixirs, or glyphs.
8) No outside financial or equipment assistance (no gold or bags from other toons)
9) THE BIG ONE – if you die, ever, you delete that toon and start over at lvl 1 Any takers? If you’re doing it, post on that character and we will track your progress.

Good luck!

Here’s the original forum post, with plenty of comments answering questions: The Ironman Challenge

Questions and issues that were brought up:

  • Quest greens? It’s up to you, but #1 says otherwise. The Cataclysm zones might be something of a challenge here. 😉
  • No talents, even if it buffs a class ability. Just turn off your talent pane and send it packing. Rogue poisons are Ok, since poison is an important part of their class makeup.
  • If you want to be a bit more hardcore then skip First aid with your Rogue/Warrior/Etc.
  • Gold? Some suggest vendoring all items, rather than putting some up on the AH.
  • No Bank Alts playing the Auction House.
  • Some suggested going after the LoreMaster achievements while doing this.
  • While you can’t be in a guild, you can set up a chat channel with other Ironman participants, but thar’s not as pratical as it sounds.

So are you doing to give it a shot?
