wow How Many Games Does It Take to Reach Legend With Different Win Rates

1 post in this topic


If you have ever wondered how long it would take you to reach Legend on Hearthstone, Redditor sixhigh has created a comprehensive simulator to work out exactly that.

Many people have addressed this question before, which leads to the popular rule of thumb that Rank 5 is halfway to Legend. With the table sixhigh published in the thread about the simulator, you can see that it is a pretty good rule. What is great about this particular simulator is the detailed output. It gives you as much information as you could realistically need to help work out if you have the time and ability to reach Legend. You input your perceived win rate, and it tells you information such as the average number of games needed to reach Legend, and how often you would reach Legend given a maximum number of games. It also includes more mathematical information such as Standard Deviation.

The table sixhigh made is shown below. The numbers are the average number of games you would need to reach Legend from the ranks and win rates given.


The simulator assumes a consistent win rate across all ranks, which isn't exactly true, but it should still provide a very good estimate. It should also become clear that although time is a valuable asset in reaching Legend, getting just a bit better at the game makes the task significantly easier. In general people should strive to get better, rather than to create more time, if they are focussed on climbing to the top of the ladder.

      Our preview of Class Mounts continues with the Priest class. The mount is rewarded upon completing The Sunken Vault.
       High Priest's Lightsworn Seaker has three color tints, white for Discipline, gold for Holy and purple for Shadow.
      The Priest is wearing Normal difficulty Tier 20 Set armor. All Tomb of Sargeras sets are heavily inspired by existing Tier 6 Sets with the exception of Death Knights, Demon Hunters and Monks.

      Ana-Mouz is back in Suramar once again, joining the normal weekly world boss Withered J'im to offer us some nice loot. She's up on both EU and US servers and it's been a while since we've seen her, so here's the location in case you forgot!

      And here's her loot, including the Vantus Rune for Tichondrius:

      My game time expired about 1-1,5 months before patch 7.1.5 appeared in wow.
      I focus only on pvp and I play shaman ele. Is it worth to come back to wow? Can you guys tell in what condition pvp is right now (2s,3s,bg's / wpvp)? Comments on blizzard forum don't encourage me to return.

       Abyss Worm is the first mount from Tomb of Sargeras and according to the Mounts tab, it will drop from either Harjatan or Mistress Sassz'ine.
      We expect more mounts to be added soon, because Glory of the Tomb Raider currently offers no mount reward.

      It's been a while since we last posted videos on our YouTube channel. We're back and today we're looking at the Warlock Class Mount coming in Patch 7.2. All available tints were included in the video.
