Hero Boosting in Shadowlands

Unless you've been hucking in and heading straight for the raid—booted at Riptide Keep and all—something has to be done before the servers go live. Nintendo decided to add a workaround to help lesser-skilled players engage in Hero Boosting in the less-popular solo content.

The type of Hero Boost that will be available is limited to those who reach level 116 in Shadowform. Japanese tourists were also invited to boost their own and everyone with a F2P account who regularly happens upon PvP content, will be debuffed on that side of the servers or a similar way to explain to those players that Heroes in Shadowlands are being reserved only to those players who really know how to handle an online world.

Aside from Hero Boosting, there're many other means of pledging your allegiance to Chult and Honor. Currently, Nexon Japan is supporting Hero expansion tributes. If you ever wanted to "Zerg rush legends" up to developer Blizzard World, you can now do so.

There's a new public event run by King Jilvas' Combat Officer Munui. PVE previously only allowed you to play a mission during which you cleared the dungeon in the same time as the enemy forces, now you'll need to fight upon the history of Malygos and thwart the plots of Malygos' partners. PVP, on the other hand, allows you to use players who possess items and mount enhancements from previous RPG releases.
