Posted on February 18, 2014, Ron Whitaker World of Warcraft’s Level 90 Boost Could Cost $60
One of the most-talked about additions to World of Warcraft’s Warlords of Draenor expansion is the ability to instantly level a character to level 90. But what if you want to level a second one? Well, get out your wallet.
When Blizzard announced that WoW players would be able to instantly advance a character to level 90 when they purchased Warlords of Draenor, the reaction was mixed. Some people were happy, because they could instantly catch up on leveling and start checking out the expansion content. Some people were angry, because they felt it cheapened a leveling experience that was already too fast. Regardless, both groups knew that it was coming, and that is was also going to be added to the in-game store. What they didn’t know was how much it was going to cost.
Today, we got a first glimpse at what one of these boosts might cost, and it’s a little surprising – $60. According to WoW Insider, one of their staffers saw the pricing for the level 90 boost appear on the live servers briefly today between restarts, and captured a screenshot, which appears at the top of this article.
Whether or not this pricing holds true for the boosts once Warlords of Draenor launches is anyone’s guess, but I wouldn’t expect them to come cheap. After all, when they’re already charging $30 to change factions, and $25 to change races, you had to know that this service would be even more expensive.
