The Burning Crusade Classic turns the level cap to 70 and adds tutorials to boost characters

So tired of re-labeling these.

It’s time to test out the apex of power in WoW Classic’s first expansion, as the beta for The Burning Crusade Classic has just raised the level cap to 70. This also means that players can now take part in Heroic dungeons and Arena skirmishes while also taking part in the Eye of the Storm battleground, so there’s stuff to try out even if the game hasn’t yet thrown open the door for raid testing.

Meanwhile, character boosting. Yes, people are going to be angry about that one for a while, but it has resulted in more changes beyond just jumping into the game at level 58; there are actually new quests added to the game to provide a brief tutorial to anyone getting boosted and give a rundown of how to play the game. There’s even specific sets of gear for each armor class, although the sets are made from existing models and should look familiar to veterans of the classic game. Whether or not this mollifies anyone annoyed by character boosting remains to be seen (but probably not).

Yeah I’m not sure about boosting, it’s not in the spirit of the game.

Welp. I was 99% committed to fixing the mistakes I made in vanilla WoW and BC, i.e. quitting over and over and not keeping up with it. And of course Blizzard now turns it into a microtransaction-fueled clown fiesta that no longer resembles the original game. MT’s are everything. I unsubbed today, not sure if I’ll be back or not.

1 boost per account makes sense IMO. It takes months to level 1-60. By doing this, so many more players will opt in. Also the RAF system was introduced in TBC as a catch up mechanic. 300%+xp, and every second level you and your friend got could be given away to a low level character, you would eventually end up with a free level 60.

So no, this 1 time boost doesnt take away the spirit of original TBC.

You say ‘free’ (back in the day.) I said something like ‘hellstorm of microtransaction frog boiling’. The boost isn’t free. Which means your argument is apples and oranges. Part of the charm and relief of classic is to just pay a sub and escape from the blizzard of modern microtransactions, pun intended. That appears to be over, that was my point.

It wasn’t really free, i mean you had to get someone to buy sub+TBC. If RAF was available today people would just sub on two accounts and multibox(as people did back then).. I’d say a single time boost is less harmful.

The cost might be apples and oranges in comparison, the concept is still somewhat similar.
