Answer: I have mixed feelings, if game have boost like Lost Ark = complete story, get lvl 50 and get free boost for alts + get boost when new class gets released, in a way you have earned it and you already know how game mechanics works and access to such boost are for everyone. On other side if you sell them on market and you can buy it on new account right away, for me at least it feels stupid. That means game is heavily based on endgame (which is not bad on its own), you openly say "we did bad job on leveling part/content" and such boost increases chances that you can get people who don't get game mechanics etc. on endgame part as member of your party. In few words - boost is ok as long its not sold in market right away and it wont ruin experience for any other player.
