Blizzard had previously announced that pre-purchasing the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion Warlords of Draenor would gain you a free boost to level 90. Today, they’ve sweetened the deal by giving the level boost to purchasers immediately. This means you can take your newly buffed-up toon around the block way before the expansion even releases. If you opt for the digital deluxe version, you’ll also be rewarded with pets, mounts, and other goodies.
The pre-purchase option isn’t available quite yet, but will be “soon.” In addition to the initial boost, players will also be able to purchase level 90 boosts individually for other characters, so there’s no need to fumble with additional accounts if you’d like to have more level 90’s right out of the gate.
This seems like a good way to pull in players who may not have touched World of Warcraft in a while, as well as completely new players. If I didn’t want to see my friends ever again, I might hop on this deal.
