The Battle for Azeroth Character Boost service levels a character on your Blizzard account to level 48.

A clickable icon on your character selection screen will indicate that you have a Character Boost ready to use.


When the boost is applied, your character receives a new set of gear appropriate to your level and four 16-slot bags. The gear the character was originally wearing —and everything in the character’s inventory— is sent to the in-game mailbox.

Skills, and Professions

Your character will also receive the Expert Riding skill and the ability to fly in all flight-enabled zones, except those gated behind an achievement (such as Pathfinder). If you didn't have any flying mounts, you'll receive a basic one.

Professions are not boosted.

Content unlock

Incomplete quests are automatically abandoned, and all quest items destroyed. To restart any of the abandoned quests, visit the relevant quest giver.

Content from previous expansions must be unlocked through normal play:

  • Legion —Visit Dalaran to start the quest to unlock your Class Order Hall and to obtain your artifact weapon.
  • Warlords of Draenor —Visit the Dark Portal to start the quest to unlock your garrison.

Boosted characters cannot enter dungeons and raids from previous expansions for the first 24 hours.


  • You cannot purchase a character boost in another region.
  • Customer Support will not assist with any mistakes using a boost.
  • Allied Races —Boosted Allied Race characters will not earn Heritage Armor.
  • Character Services —It is not possible to buy a Character Transfer, Faction Change, or any other service for a character that has been boosted in the past 72 hours. Customer Support cannot bypass this restriction.
  • WoW Token —It is not possible to boost a character with a WoW Token in the inventory, bank, or mailbox.
  • Glyphs —Applied glyphs will be erased from your character when boosted.
