Changes to eliminate WoW boosting organizations have been announced by Blizzard ...

The most enjoyable (and sometimes worst) aspect of World of Warcraft is certain to the social aspect. However, some players of the hit MMORPG may be able to grind, quest, and explore solo, but it''s also more enjoyable with a friendly face or two pitching in. However, Blizzard is now attempting to clamp down on WoW boosters.

The concept of being a friendly player joins in with a high-level character, groupes up with your low-level character, and takes the opportunity to pull all dang enemy in an entire low-level dungeon. Though the XP amounts will be lower than with a same-level group, some tweaks such this can significantly accelerate the levelling process.

Unlike other companies, there is a seedier side. Anyone who has sat down in Stormwind or Orgrimmar knows that crooks selling gold for real money are a dime a dozen, but equally common are those who sell dungeon booster services. Pay someone who works in an illicit farming warehouse somewhere a whack of in-game gold, and they will gain real money. Apart from that, the constant ads for boosting gums up chat are worse than a political dispute.

The rest of Blizzard''s main content release for Burning Crusade Classic and for future dungeons in Wrath of the Lich King Classic, is implementing changes that will make mobs in low-level dungeons easier to endlessly kite around, and reducing group XP earned when there is a large gap between players.

This is not the first time that Blizzard has taken steps to stem boosting back in January, but it confirmed that large-scale groups operating across multiple realms are in violation of the WoW terms of service and will be subjected to bans. This decree did not apply to individual players and guilds, but thus the majority of these organizations, which use discord rather than in-game communication, were able to dodge these bans. This announcement will likely be more effective, although it will have the effect of preventing practice
