5 hours 28 minutes for level 110, Serenity's Fragnance didn't really fully experience the Legion leveling experience, did he?

Well that didn't take long. As per tradition, the new expansion leveling experience (no pun intended) was a very short one for the first person to get to max level. This time around it was Fragnance from top World First contender, Serenity, who were formed from the bulk of Method's raiding roster some months ago.

Five hours and 28 minutes was the exact time it took for "Sicklikeme" the Demon Hunter on Twisting Nether to ding 110 with his leveling partner Gingi, and there's a handy VoD of the whole thing (leveling starts around the 1H40Min mark):

Also, I know this is just a little late, but hey, it's my first day here so gimme a break!

That's fast, would never pick the new hero class for 'first max level achi' because too many players want to play with that class.

But anyway, I enjoy the layback and live the lore approach, even though I won't reach 110 long after the first players, the experience is longer lasting than any achievement :)

I'm pretty sure I took longer than that just to get to 103.

honestly this, now i by no means am trying to power level but i've spent every moment not sleeping or working on the game and im only 104. now, every time anything in my order hall opens up i do that, i've got all the quests i can do done, and my artifact is pretty far along imo, but my guild already has around 30 ish lvl 110s. 

even then i think i'll lose some popularity with this statement but I don't see the point in striving for world first or server first max level character. sure you can start gearing a bit faster i suppose, but you don't experience the game at all, mmos are about immersion and power leveling straight through makes that impossible. to each their own of course, if you buy a sandwich i have no right to tell you how to enjoy it, but i'm not going to applaud you for finishing your sandwich first. think about an expensive meal, you hork it down and everyone looks at you funny asking if you could even taste it etc, same principle here.

I agree that for most people there really is no point in getting WF or server first max level, but these guys basically experienced EVERYTHING already on beta, where they also planned the routes to level this fast and so on. This particular one wasn't even specifically planned as a "world first run" I'd say, just generally "let's level fast".

Also different people enjoy thing differently, I mean your reaction was fine and measured, but some of the ones on Facebook for example really get stupid "I enjoy things this way, thus this person is dumb/no life etc because they didn't do it the way I would". I also am taking it reeeeeeally slowly but I also totally understand the speed leveling impulse, even if you hadn't previously done everything on the beta. These guys also have like a gazillion alts (I blame Blizz for making it almost mandatory for each top guild player to have well geared alts in order to compete).

This part right here is key to all of this. When you've got 5 characters that you "need" to level for raiding, are you really going to take your time and relax while leveling, especially after experiencing it all? No chance.
