Free copy of Cataclysm expansion and level 80 Character

#1 Posted by Mmmslash (2166 posts) -

If you used to play, but perhaps dropped off before Cataclysm came out, this is a pretty alright deal (if you're interested in playing again, of course!).

You get a free copy of the Expansion, a level 80 character with Blues (so you can hop right into the Cataclysm content), a week of play time, and I get a sweet mount if you use my Scroll of Resurrection to do it.

Feel free to use this thread to coordinate with others, too, if folks are interested.

oh that sounds pretty good. I almost want to get back in just for the free level 80.

You go all the way to level 80? Wouldn't that be a lot of extra skills to learn?

Can you even do this if you don't have Lich King?
 
The only reason I quit last time was because I didn't want to buy two whole expansions to get Cataclysm content.

They're giving away free 80s now? Why? Now there's goIng to be 10x more shitty tanks and healers.

@LordXavierBritish: Yep, total upgrade from WoW classic to Cataclysm.
 
This is a super offer for anyone on the fence, but I feel bad for subbing last month..if I knew this...><

Selling implies you pay for the leveling. This is free. It's really temping too.

@CL60: Not that there are many 85's who know how to play their class, anyway. You can't make the general community any more incompetent than they already are.

@adoggz: Well, if you decide to, let me know! I would dig a new mount.

@Veiasma: The same goes to you! I'd be happy to spread my Scrolls to anyone willing to take them.

Oh this could ruin the endgame community even more than it already is. I'm not an elitist but at least when you play your class from
1-80 you, usually, know how to play it.

I'd disagree. If LFR has taught me anything, being 85 doesn't mean a single thing. The game is full of knuckle-dragging neanderthals. Yesterday we had a Paladin queue up as Heals and proceeded to pull every boss and complain when he died.

People are terrible at this game all over, this just means I have a wider berth of idiots to wade through.

That said, WoW is an easy game, I don;t understand how folks can be so bad at it.

You might want to add the free server transfer and faction change into the OP, they are the greatest incentives imo.
 
Edit - I'm way to jaded to play wow again, but it's a decent deal for people on the fence, esp for people with friends on other servers / factions etc.

#13 Posted by Mmmslash (2166 posts) -

@Adamsons: The issue is that they are limited. They only allow them to transfer to the sender's server and faction and, while I would be friendly with them, there is a very slim chance they would be interested in anything to do with our Guild on Horde Mug'thol.

Anyone wants to resurrect me?

Interesting, but I've had my fill of WOW. With all the other MMOs I haven't played on the market now (many of them F2P) or arriving later this year, why would I return to something I spent two and half years with? This makes me wonder just how much longer WOW will remain a subscription-only game.

@LethalKi11ler: Sure PM me your email. And if anyone else wants one do the same.

if anybody wants to be resurrected by me just PM me, oh I'm EU btw so if you're US you won't get the server transfer but you still get the level 80 and free cata upgrade from vanilla or wotlk.

Looking for a duder to help me snag a free 80.

Anyone with any level of skill and dedication is in a guild with a more or less set raiding team. Apart from that, "endgame" in WoW as it relates to your average duder who just farts around on weekends has barely changed since Vanilla. Instead of standing around Undercity spamming chat to organize a group full of idiots, I hit LFD and pop instantly into a group full of idiots. So it's just as crappy, but way faster, now.

With that said, if anyone wants an invite, PM me with your Character name and Server (I don't need or want your battle.net email address) and Ill send ya a Scroll.
