Oh. I was planning on doing this to help power level my gfs toon to 80. May as well get a free 80 Druid or something. lol

@hami83

getting a toon to lvl 80 instantly is going to mean jack for anything if you don't have lvl 80 gear to get you started into cata content. otherwise you are just going to be slaughtered by the first lvl 80-81 cata mob's you see.

You could buy some trash drops for the 80 toon to last them though the first few quests needed to gear up properly. That or run thogh some lv 70 quests from litch to gear up.

Blizzard is smarter than you are.
Full set of ilevel 232 gear for fresh 80's:

Granted, even with a full set of gear for a toon instantly leveled to 80, I see this move as nothing more than an attempt to pad subscriber numbers for a ship that is clearly taking on water.

It was ""Cocaine is a hell of a drug!"...

...and what the hell does this have to do with the topic?

@Utakata World of Warcraft is bad for you despite being addicting, obviously.

...Okay. Even if I wasn't joking that's still only half true. :/

Nope. I want a flying rainbow fortress and a Ghostcrawler bobble-head or no deal.

Sub numbers starting to slide?

NOPE.

Free level 80s.

This is going to work very well for them, I bet.

So as a loyal customer for quite some time, I have to pay 55(25 server, 30 faction) bucks to join my hordie buddies... but someone who stopped playing gets it for free? Appartently I need to quit to get rewards... go figure.

So I started to play Rift, I like Rift and at least I get free realm transfers.

Knowing that I'd need to spend a small fortune on all the expansions plus subscription fees has made me never even consider playing WoW. A free upgrade to Cataclysm definitely sounds interesting. Could you use one of these if you subbed and cancelled right away, or would you have to wait a month?

@Seinaru Scroll of Resurrection (unless it changes with this update) only works on accounts that have been cancelled for at least 90 days.

Sadly, with all I am looking towards in other games, not interested in the slightest. Even if GW2 some how falls through, TERA is like WoW, but much better imo. I would rather play TERA over WoW any day. Sorry blizz, you guys can try, but I am done with you.

Pretty much same. Don't think I can handle coming back to this sort of game. I prefer RIFT for a fantasy style game at this point. World events > sitting in Org / Southwind waiting for my Q to pop.
