    This thread is dedicated to the exploration and exploitation of methods involving starting, maintaining and enhancing a "Power Level" aka "Boost". Ultimately this thread is to be built up so it may be added to the Power Level Tier List.


    Tips before we start: Advise your customers to slowly tp out with the eyeball button if they need to. Phat fingers can ruin a power level or set it back several minutes in order to reform. Please only advertise in allowed channels in-game. You can and will get reported in mass for abusing the wrong channel. Many people hate twinks so just laugh and continue wrecking npc health bars. Don't feed the Angry Troll!

    With PVE Boost Twinking fresh off the high of 101' Legion toons, we all looked for the next best thing. We found 110 twinks for Isle and freehold carries. Sadly Bobby needed a new boat so he himself coded in all the changes concerning this article Freehold/island 8.2. Changes. This resulted in the current system where xp off players nerf xp of manually invited party members. No doubt Bobby got his boat form the sales of shop boosts. /clap for bobby and his new boat

    Method #1 The Chromie Crawl: Assuming your customer is level 10 have them queue for a random Mop dungeon. At 10 the only random MoP is Jade temple. As the Booster you need to specifically que jade temple if you have more than 1 dungeon in the mop list. Communicate with your customer when the queue pops. If you've received the prompt to enter simultaneously than you're good to go. Once in you're ready to begin the 2-3 hour boosting process. after the Jade Temple switch to Chromie time classic. Work your way though Randoms until most are done. At this point specific que to finish all the remaining classic dungeons with quests remaining. Switch to BC and then Lich when finished with the prior expansion. Takes roughly 2-3 hours for a Chromie Crawl Power level barring no obstacles.

    Method #2 The Wod Grind: Same as method 1 but the booster exclusively queues for WOD dungeons after the Jade temple queue fishing. This results in an additional hour added to the boosting time. WF items will give your carry the feeling of reward whilst also being boosted. This will Net you more gold and more gear.

    Method 3 is pretty simple but due to less party slots can be slightly less relieable. Late at night/morning is best. Just que isle expos and spam those over and over. HAVE TO TEST IF THIS PARTY CAN BE CONVERTED TO INSTANCE GROUP FOR 5 MANS 3-5 hours

    Reports are coming in that turning off your xp after getting into the dungeon can allow for easier targeted party formation. BEWARE!!!!! Methods such as this are all Chainsaws and Rainbows until you end up getting xp somehow. BE VERY CARFUL IF EXPLOITING THE SWITCH-A-ROO. Turn xp back on when resetting this process for a new buyer group.

    Whatever you can fool people into thinking 5 minute levels cost between a 1-5 minutes CD. Actually making for a 8-10 minute level. lets not sugar coat this by saying its just 5 minutes of time a dungeon. There is seldom an instant queue if you are finishing in under 6 minutes. Most will sell and buy for around 2-5k a level. It is better to the customers eye to see an ad like "50k gold per 10 levels" Rather than "5k a level". I could put as much effort into following a booster as I could questing. Now, that's obviously not what a buyer thinks. But 80% of the time they don't know a wod queue has like a 20% chance of containing a twink.

    500-1k gold a run. No one is geared enough nor skilled enough to charge 2k without it being a bad deal; even in exploited gear! At that point you are ripping the person off. regardless of server 2k-5 a run is too much. You might as well learn to exploit DH skips and play 20 boosting, skipping to last boss when possible. That being said, if you can have someone pay you 2k+ a run, more power to you. Ripping people off might spread bad word-of-mouth though. actual value is 500-1k because you are not unique and any wod queue can bring a twink into your carries party. That also means if you run into another twink while boosting and don't outshine them you actually become a joke in the eyes of the carry especially if your charging a ridiculous amount. If you're not a giga-chad-twink don't sell runs just yet. Imagine paying for something just to look over to the left and see it cleaner, faster or for free..

    Please add your comments about these and other methods as well as pricing.
    Also, please check out these threads Power Level Tier List, Master Speedrun Thread, Consumables and Others and the Twinking the Twink Thread.

    Thank you.

    No, that's not me but its someone I go to church with.
    Literally every wod dungeon I get into I go over the history of twinking, xpoff, power progression in general and so much more. Gotta spread the good word of the xpoff scripture. I may have motived this person to do what they are doing. I was One of the only 11 bear in BFA AND SL. but I doubt if I did inspire this person it was that far back. I've gotten like 40 people to make 11 bears and constantly ask me to help feed their toons. I ABSOLUTLY LOVE IT!

    Not to have a big head or anything but I love you all for the constant in-game whispers.
    --- Double Post Merged, Jan 22, 2023 ---
    Reading the comments on that reddit make be EL OH EL. People often don't understand half of the things they pay for. They just skim the surface thinking this is a new thing or an exploit because it looks like cheats.
    --- Double Post Merged, Jan 22, 2023 ---
    This may not even be a boost but rather they are farming 2nd boss for speed tert pants.

    I do have negative things to say about this video though. from a methodology point of view. I'll just say pulling for glory makes us look sloppy.

    "500-1k gold a run is the average cost. No one is geared enough nor skilled enough to charge 2k without it being a bad deal; even in exploited gear!"

    You can do 10 runs an hour. Am i missing something or is this one of the worse ways to make gold

    Supply and demand lowers the value. They can get a twink just by queing for wod without needing a power leveler to manually run them. If you want to charge 2k for 5 minutes of work it sounds like a good trade. Until another twink shows up or they get a twink organically on another toon. Since we are already running wod it is not bad gold per hour at 500g a run x1-4 people. Idk what else we got going for us? 6goldx4 per 5 minutes. Get all that 2 gold from looting thrash....wait we don't loot trash cause we only loot bosses. how much is a WF vendor? 16 silver.

    Therefore, yes, it is good gold per hour...

    No man reading the comments on that post is seriously depressing.

    the amount of twink hate out there is astounding. And the uneducated or small minded Andy’s out there legit can’t seem to separate twinking from hacking or otherwise 3rd party exploiting in their minds.

    I saw many comments there with people circle jerking to remove xpoff twinks from dungeon queues.

    The issue is that blizz probably listens to these peasants.

    JFC.

    Most players are shaped like this[​IMG]

    I wouldn't worry about blizzard doing anything. We are such high hanging fruit. Always have been always will be.

    Yes but the hate twinks get is understandable.
    True story:
    I was minding my own business farming Iron Docks on a hot august day on my lvl 45 tank so i decided to queue so i can help some motherfuckers (actually I wanted to boost my ego so i can get it in the same range as my cock or at least close to that). And after few short seconds (more like 40 minutes because wow is dead) I got in, and the healer was a lvl 11 monk. I smelled trouble because his name was something like Igodpwn or Conzilsucks or Vengful, or something like that. So, i mounted my trusted horse, applied flask (because I am a tryhard player), rune, used two scrolls (battle shout and fortitude) after yelling at the group priest that he's retarded.
    The monk was already at the third boss(bosses) and he slapped the caster so hard that he forgot what to cast so he turned around and threw some purple shit at the priest who bitched that wow is too hard. The boss goblin threw some mines on the ground and the group hunter stepped on them because he was backpeddling so he died because we had no healer, the healer was tank, the tank (me) was taking photos so i can remember this awesome moment and besides that, I'm not bandage-spec anyway. Our trusty tank, the healer monk, noticed the hunter dieing painfully because of the mines, so he turned his wrath to the goblin boss.
    With his left hand he reached inside the boss' chest and he pulled boss' heart out and casted some green shit on it. The last boss of the three-pack, the melee one, saw this shit happening so he evaded a bit. Or at least he tried, but the monk was already on him. He spun so hard making the instance server lag so hard that I swear to god I heard the fourth boss, which he haven't even engaged yet, yell "Shirvallah, fill me with your RAGE!"
    And filled he was. The monk rolled left and right dodging a clefthoof, a chicken with wings and several orcs picking their nosses and enter the fourth boss' visual. The boss flinched, the monk raised his fist.
    It was a battle of wits.
    But it was over in a second, some green goo spat on the boss and it was silence, you could hear our hearts beating inside the chest. Boom, boom, boom.
    We didn't even manage to loot because the monk jumped the stairs to the last bosses already. One of them said something about "No king rules forever, my son" and another one, his son probably, yelled that Blackhand will have their hides.
    But it was too late, their fate was already sealed. The monk barrel-rolled between them and hit them both in the nuts. You could hear the nuts colliding into a Big Bang, one like the world had never seen. Both fell lifeless at the feet of the monk. Oh, and there was some giant dude that died because he got caught between the nuts.
    End of story. But now I hate twinks.

    All these peasant forum complainers will bicker all day long with eachother about which classes or specs need nerfing or buffing or or what content is too hard or what is or isn’t an exploit related to endgame.

    the second anything low level is brought up immediately the discussion turns to “but twink bad” and all of a sudden these assholes are in full agreement regardless if they have any idea what they’re talking about or not.

    “I remember back in TBC a single 19 kept our entire battleground team at gy… he was like a raid boss”

    hurr durr. Those days are long long done but the mental trauma turned into stories that were passed down which turned into a mental disability for the current playerbase.

    The people wanted level scaling. The people wanted gear scaling. The people wanted legacy content nerfed to the ground so it could be easily solo'd for collectors.

    The people got exactly what they asked for. And they fucking hate it.

    Shocker.

    saw this too. comments have about the expected amount of hate.
    i woulda been mad if i was in that run too though. i don't like tanks that speed ahead and leave mobs barely angry at them, likely to turn on the healer the first sign of hps or any innocent dps that in their ignorance actually dps. at least smack em to half health before running off.

    This is what im coining as "Glory Pulling". When a tank doesn't care about mob agro/hp/kiting. Resulting in sloppy runs and dead questers. Draining our already sketchy standing in the community of whatever honor it has.

    it's like healers that dps. their first job is to keep people alive. a healer dpsing while ppl die is doing it wrong.
    tanks' job is to keep the mobs angry at them. if a tank's focusing on doing big dps and leaving mobs 90 yds outside of their taunt range to aggro onto the other players, they're just as wrong.
    doing more than your role is fine, but do your primary role first and foremost.

    There are social contracts between roles that need to be met in order for the game to run smoothly. I do personally feel that pulling for glory is against these social contracts. I am not speaking about blizzards new PC attempt at a tos.

    Twinks that don't know this are the problem, not the solution. Each moment can be a one off but if anyone constantly pulls like the above reddit video they are indeed a bad twink imho. Somewhat @thready so I'll stop there about that example.

    Dependency on others pushes us to work together. Self Sufficiency leads to enabling micro and macro vacuums of bandwagoning. Instances where a player expects a role to interact and intervene; so they pull as if they will be safe regardless of the dictation of court vision. All roles interacting with one another within in a Twink environment will organically create bandwagoning; often many times a run. Even near 1 shotting toons seem to be victim to this logic as well. Be Sharp, Be Good, Play Better, TWINKLE MORE!
