I’ve never touched World of Warcraft (apart from maybe the inebriated hijacking of a friend’s game once or twice) and I don’t claim to know anything about the MMO. What I do know, however, is that this is pretty freakin’ crazy.
A player on the Feathermoon server has officially hit the level 85 cap with his character, a Night Elf Restoration Druid named Everbloom, without killing a single thing. The player also didn’t complete a single quest though it says otherwise in their stats — one quest called “Invitation to the Argent Tournament” supposedly marks you off for a quest after opening a letter. All the player did do to reach this level 85 was explore: an unbelievable amount of running, swimming, and searching everything in sight.
Here’s what the player had to say about their accomplishment:
Being on the ground and sneaking around mining and herbing and eventually archaeology, going everywhere to get every single point of discovery xp that you can, really gives you a chance to see an amazing world up close and personal. I spent hours swimming around reefs and flying to the farthest reaches of the maps.
If you like to explore, and enjoy a challenge I really REALLY recommend this, I have been playing since day 1 on other characters and I even have an original Loremaster (you know, back when it was hard) and I saw so MANY new things with Everbloom that it really made it worthwhile for me to continue on with this character, and each level was a major achievement!
Again, I can only assume this is an insane way to go about the game without knowing much. What do all of you WoW players think; impressive and intriguing way to play or a whole new level of “too much time on your hands” gaming?
