Ok, I want you to take a breath, relax for a moment and read that headline again.
A player of the MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) World of Warcraft reached the highest level you can reach, level 85, without killing anyone. At all. Ever.
According to Geekologie, a Night Elf Restoration Druid named Everbloom has been playing on World of Warcraft’s Feathermoon server, and reach level 85 with only one quest and without killing anyone. This is both an incredible feat, and wholly depressing, don’t you think?
All the player did to reach this level 85 was explore, run, swim, and searching everything in sight. Here’s what the player had to say about it:
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!
All I can think of if the episode of South Park entitled “Make Love, Not Warcraft” where the main characters are killed over and over again by someone at a super-high level. So, they spend all their time killing boars to level up. You can watch the amazing montage here.
I imagine the player’s experience with Everbloom was probably similar. What about you?
