WoW Classic 1-60 Solo Speedrun Leveling Record: 48 Hours WoW Classic 1-60 Solo Speedrun Leveling Record: 48 Hours It seems DesMephisto isn't the only one speeding to max level, as a Classic record has been broken! TommySalami has managed to get from level 1 to 60, completely on his own, unaided, in almost exactly 2 days (48 hours, 17 minutes, to be exact)! He has the entire journey chronicled in a video series on his twitch page, with a combination of solo dungeons and open world mobs, and a whole lot of AoE, with the below final ding coming in the 15th installment of the series.

Specific Vendor Corruptions Prediction Theories Specific Vendor Corruptions Prediction Theories Update: The second theory has been debunked, as it's predicted items did not show up in today's list!
We have some possibly good news for all the people still chasing their perfect Corruption setup (which would be most players everywhere), as two separate theories have come up predicting which Corruptions will appear at what time in MOTHER's shop. Both theories are based on the Corruptions that we've seen so far, so neither has the full info for all Corruptions yet and both predict entries in different time frames, so their predictions don't conflict with each other.
