Unless the person has a 50+ toon & can't afford the boost immediately, then I would say grind those last few levels until you can afford it. Other than that, I 100% definitely agree. The aspect of "Time is Money, Friend" sums it up. Well Done.
Alchemy This last weekend 4k gold, without selling items, including leftover herbs.
I just started playing WoW in the middle of November I chose my 90 to boost to be an Alliance version of the one class I had leveled to 90 already to avoid having to learn something from scratch. I also picked Engineering but took the mining to gather my own materials im currently at 425 engineering with only a few hours spent farming. Hour or two more ill be up to Pandaria level anyway. So even with no starting capital its a smarter investment to boost up from Level 1.
Wow ... Faid and I like exactly the same kind of music! We should be friends!
"A week to get to 60"- 2 days off, full boas. Thus far I'm 10 hours into play time and am level 40. As long as you know how to level efficiently, it doesn't take nearly that long. I'll be able to get to 60 by the time my weekend is over XD
