Remember the other day we reported that thanks to an in-game screenshot, it was revealed that level boosting your World of Warcraft characters to level 90 would cost gamers $60? At that time it was speculated that maybe the $60 price tag was a placeholder and that the actual boost could be cheaper, but it turns out that it is true after all and that gamers who wish to boost their World of Warcraft characters to level 90 will have to pay that much.
Blizzard has since come forward and spoken to Eurogamer, explaining the reason why they have priced it that way. “Levelling is something that takes dozens if not over 100 hours in many cases and people have put serious time and effort into that, and we don’t want to diminish that.”
As it stands, Blizzard will be offering a free boost to level 90 for every purchase of the expansion, but if gamers wish to boost more characters, they’d have to fork out $60.
With the upcoming expansion, Warlords of Draenor, Blizzard has raised the level cap to 100. This means that gamers would have to play through 100 levels in order to access end-game content. This is versus Burning Crusade or Wrath of the Lich King where they only have 70 and 80 levels respectively.
Leveling has also since been made easier and faster, but gaining 100 levels does seem daunting and for gamers who want only want to play end-game content, we guess the level boost might be a service worth considering.
