wow First Legion Lvl 110 in Under 6 Hours

9 posts in this topic

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!

Hello, good sir!

Re: That video

OMG...  I am from Ravencrest and we're nowhere near that populated...  That is ridiculous...

It's like one giant mass of ... I was going to say Humanity - but OMG...

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.

      Shackled Ur'zul received a new color tint ever since we looked at Patch 7.3 mounts. The mount will be a 100% drop from Mythic Argus the Unmaker until next expansion.
      The 100% drop chance of Mythic mounts is always drastically reduced when a new expansion's released and the raid becomes trivial.

      A first look at upcoming Antoran mounts from the new raid.
      Two new Antoran hounds were added in Patch 7.3 and they're sharing models with the Hounds of Sargeras boss encounter in Antorus the Burning Throne raid.
      Description
      Sargeras' own hound was maybe once a felstalker, but over the years the Dark Titan reforged and reshaped his companion into something much more powerful. When, at last, he was pleased with his creation, he set about creating more of the hounds, and imbuing them with shadow and flame.
      Antoran Charhound looks like Shatug and Antoran Gloomhound looks like Fharg.

      Images taken from our 7.3 boss models thread
      The mounts (or at least one of them) might have a low drop chance from Sargeras's dogs encounter in Antorus, just like Abyss Worm from Mistress Sass'zine.

      The latest Patch 7.3 build added voice overs for the most important Argus characters as well as sounds for Antorus, the Burning Throne raid bosses. They're a great complement to the leaked Legion ending and our theory of Pantheon involvement in Antorus.
      Please note that this article contains major spoilers revolving around the Argus story line and Antorus the Burning Throne raid.
      Argus the Unmaker (Argus World Soul)
      Final boss of Antorus the Burning Throne.
      Aggramar
      Penultimate boss in Antorus.
      Aman'thul
      It seems he appears when Argus is defeated.
      Eonar
      A Valithria-style boss in Antorus.
      Sargeras
      Currently, he doesn't have a model, there's just a "Voice of Sargeras" NPC in the game files having the skin of an Infernal.
