A player has hit the new level cap in just 28 hours. Impressive.
Its worth the read if you’re a WoW fan. If its fake then a few sites have been drawn into it.
This is a repost from my post on my Guild’s (Endeavour) forum site.
Gullerbone, a 24-year-old French WoW player, reached level 70 at 4:04 am (CET) on January 17, 2007. He is believed to be the world’s first.
He said: “Cau (the 1st European lvl 60) and I planned the exp(erience) route step by step, trying everything to make sure it was the most appropriate, the groups organization with the guild Millenium and their members. Each member rotated using a definite order to help me to grind on mobs, mostly with AE, surrounded with several guildmate healers, tanks, pullers etc…”
Gullerbone used a tactic of ‘tagging’ computer controlled enemies, which allowed him to achieve experience points even though his guildmates killed them.
When asked how many players he had help from, he said: “Well at first we had only five (during the first 10 hours or so) so that 10 of the members could get to lvl 62. Then in the morning we were 15 in order to kill the mobs at a faster rate. Finally in the evening, everyone was involved and we could gather a 35 man raid to help me in Netherstorm with our new lvl 62 doing most of the job.”
The fact that a player has managed to reach level 70 so fast will not please developers Blizzard, who had hoped to see the Burning Crusade occupy fans for at least a year.
IMHO the fact that you can do that is not a reason for us to get upset. The real challenge will be getting through the content.
