Probably worth mentioning that the i502 boot quest where you drag Seer Hao Pham Roo up a mountain (from 5.3) is still in the game, as well. Go talk to Lorewalker Cho next to the archaeology trainers in the Seat of Knowledge (above Mogu'shan Palace) to start it - you have to do two scenarios, but you're probably doing two scenarios anyway.
Very awesome Perc. This is a great guide for boosted and brand new 90's.
Does anyone know if that lvl 90 boost is only for pre-purchase games , or will everyone who buys Warlords get one with the game ? myself i dont feel like buying game before hand , as i will probably buy Collectors Edition when its in shops . And there is few other ppl in my guild that will do the same .
If you buy the expansion, you get the boost.
I am beyond disgusted at this. So basically you get a turbo-charged character for zero work that is better geared than most EARNED 90's and with MUCH better bags. Those bags go for a huge sum on my server so I am still using Frostweave(apart from my Dragonhide drops from S3D)! Way to go Blizz. Anything for a buck right?
I agree, this is a long way from being "turbo-charged". Most of us have worked hard on our 90s and honestly most new players aren't going to take this option because the learning curve as you level a toon is necessary. This is for people who want more alts with less time doing the same quests over and over. Time is an issue for some people and as I work on my characters. On my 5th 90 I'm clear on gameplay. I prefer to spend my time on something else.
Engineers can also enchant their belts. (Nitro boosts, etc ).
You have some incorrect ilvls listed in the chart for raids. You have 540 for SoO LFR, when it drops 528, also I believe the requirement is lower than 510.
what about faction-rep grinding like Order of Cloud Serpents?
ppfff i'm still using Netherweave/Enchanted Netherweave. But my item level is about 515, so the ilvl isn't too bad...
Awesome work as always Perculia! Great guide!
Kind of bad on Blizz's part to place your character on TI with green gear (as you said for those to be warned about pvp servers); think both or just pvp server players that use this should start in their capital or something. :o
Sadly, if you're a holy paladin boosting, no weapon for you on the Timeless Isle. Only a shield.
If you boost a lvl 60+ toon to 90 do they have to have leveled their professions to max allowed at 60 or just learned the 2 primary and first aid? Would save a ton of time and mats if the boost worked from just learned to 600!
No, they'll boost up no matter what the profession level is.
Sweet I've really been wanting a priest this thanks for the guide. This is going to make lfr so hard lol
Great guide for fresh 90
Great guide! :) (Small typo in Currencies, the line beginning with "There are no Tier 16..." making the currency appear like "Currency#306". )Solid info! :)
