Splitting an almost dead community into two, wonder what will happen PepeLaugh
Good choice to try and do something about it, but they will never stop boosting if they nerf mages something else will sprout up that might not be as effecient, if you can pay someone else to level you while you just stand there then boosting will keep existing
Sry to tell you buddy but boosting will always exist no matter what blizzard does to try and remove it, if they nerf pala and mage boosting then something else will come to take it place this new boosting method might be less effecient but boosting will remain a thing that will never go away
I would gladly pay Blizzard to have a 60, 70 or whatever max level is just to go enjoy the end game content.Classic leveling was a bit fun but it was such a long journey that after a couple of days doing horrible quests it gets boring.I could do it while leveling an alt, but having to wait so long to get a max level main already puts me off.
Back in vanilla retail if Mage boosting was a thing the Dev's would have nerfed it into the dirt.
players will always find and travel the path of least resistance, if you kill mage boosting, some other form of passive gameplay will take it's place, fighting Occam's razor is pretty futile
i have to say i dont get the hate against boosting i mean you dont have to use thoseand if someone gets a boost does it really impact your gameplay?i mean if you are into serious m+ or pvp then you obviously check the ones you gonna play with and if you know what to look for (and if you are gonna play on that level you wanna play then you know what to look for) then you can see who got boosted and who did noti dont wanna defend the boosting spam by any means but all those hate against those boosters i mean at the end those are still players like we all areand if you dont want it then dont use itespecially in classic you obviously looking for a guild and if you have a good guild then well they gonna boost you anyway or at least help you if you want to in order to get you into the raid it eludes me why this is a difference or is it just the gold those boosters have?
a lot of people simply won't level a toon if they can't boost him - they simply don't have the timeand it also won't help the economy either since mages did not generate new gold but simply took already existing gold from other players.... am I butthurt mage? well, I played mage in classic and also boosted from time to time but I won't play classic seasons so I do not care ^^what's my point then? I am happy that Blizzard listened and does want the community demands but it won't have such huge impact as you guys hope.there is gonna be more open word leveling in later phases if there is no mage boosting, yes. but it's not like it will be full of lvl 30 toons looking for a dungeon group - sorry
Thank god. We may be able to find a dungeon group again
Why are people so demanding to "force" players to do open world questing with them ?Invest in a social network and be kind to others. You will find enough people to play with and not feel so lonely while questing.Boosting didn't take away questers from you. Without boosting the character may not have been created anyway or would stop before 60. There are other reasons why after some time there are less questers.Issues:-you are level 30 and your fellow quester is now 50.-guild needs healers and ask raiders to make an alt to help out. What ? Questing ? No boosting ? Nah, i'll stay on my dps char.-higher speed of phases (in 1 year it "ends"?) people will stop making a new char "shortly" before "the end". Or halt further leveling existing chars. For some it is 11 months, for some it is 7 months into the game. So after 6 months questing slowly starts to die.-people, who dont like questing and want dungeon leveling, wont be able to find tanks some time into the year cycle at higher levels. If zero xp with too high level ... it's useless to ask a friend/guildy to help out.-people who want to do raiding in the new way (no world buffs/buffed raids) may pass on that because of new limits. Questing ? Non raiding dungeons ? Been there, done that.-leveling as a healer with questing ? Slow. I'll respec dps. You want me to heal for 5 man's ? Sorry, i'm dps now. I will respec at level 60 for raiding as i'm not gonna pay 100g (2x50g max respec cost) to heal a dungeon.I was actually thinking of playing without the world buffs and more interesting raid challenges. That is for me where the fun is. Not questing. However if boosting is out of the game i'm not gonna bother alts (healer/tank) unless you get a lot more xp per open world mob kill (at least 300%).
This whole Season of Mastery sounds like a fun and cool idea. Disincentivizing mage boosts, as someone who mained a mage in 1.13, is a good idea. Interested to see how this plays out in beta.
