Loving the free Anniversary Boost!

General Discussion
Ever since it was activated, I'm finding legendary and set items all over and the gold drops are wicked. Would be nice to get feedback from other players (positive or otherwise) on how everyone would feel about making that boost permanent? I'm in!!
The boost is nice. Would have rather seen some other kind of more permanent bonus. Especially for those of us still around from that original release date chaos.
Too true Detnyj ... too true ...
If you make the boost permanent, it ceases to be anything special. It also essentially nerfs the game, which really doesn't need any further nerfing.

I'm taking advantage of the bonus while it's here, but I wouldn't want to see it stick around forever.
wouldn't know I have been in wow gearing my characters. I guess I'll just miss it but feel it should not be kept over.
Been using the boost in hardcore.

Boost started just when i hit level 60. So nice.

Picked up 5 paragon levels.
Yeah the boost has worked wonders for me. So far I got 2 legs from the same pack of elites -- 2 pairs of Gladiator Gauntlets -- LOL :-) (with 550 MF)
It's interesting to see what people are using the boost for.

I've seen some grinding Paragon, some levelling up new hero's, some levelling 2nd hero's for the achievements etc.

Nice to see that a simple buff has different effects on the playerbase.

As other's have said if the buff was permanent then it would devalue it, but I agree it's a shame we didn't get a banner or something for the birthday. Could have made a banner and made it more epic each year that you continue to be around for the birthdays.

Awesome ideas everyone!! Glad to see ... keep 'em coming!!
Sony has double xp weekends all the time, just sayin
I've gained quite a few post-70 Paragon Levels rather quickly with this temporary buff while playing on MP7 and no ruby or Hellfire Ring.

I'm really enjoying it for sure. I'm also glad that it's lasting for more than a day or just over the weekend. It definitely leaves plenty of time for folks to make the best use of it.
i played for three hours today.

i found this pile of stuff: http://i43.tinypic.com/6fmkk2.jpg

all comparable items are listed on the ah in the 20k-50k range.

i hate this game.
They should make it permanent. The game is more FUN this way. Shouldn't it be their goal to make the game as fun as possible?
i notice no difference

and then people would complain that Blizzard makes the game too easy. You can't win both ways. Just enjoy the free EXP for a bit.

Not quite all the time, average about 6 - 7 a year. Also they are not really anything special anymore, hence the point that this is a limited thing.

Agreed, they can't win both ways. I want them to win my way.

There's a 25% bonus to MF and XP until the 21st for the game's one year anniversary.
