wow Player Maxes Out All Artifact Traits

23 posts in this topic

54 traits. 65 million Artifact Power. Cerli.


Well, in the wake of Doubleagent and his 110 ding without leaving the Padaren start zone, we have another insane achievement: Cerli from The Maelstrom has maxed out his Unholy Artifact weapon, getting the final, 54th, trait unlocked after acquiring a total of 65 million artifact power. For those of you that may not be aware, after you finish up your 34 normal traits you get the bonus trait you can put another 20 points in. So that's 5 million for the normal upgrades and then another measly 60 until you're maxed. At this point that really is a VERY unholy weapon and you really could say it's devoured someone's life!


Go here the full event, click to 21 hours in.

As you'd imagine this took a lot of Mythic+ dungeons, 2067 completed in time, in fact, with 383 Darkheart Thicket, 818 Maw of Souls, 444 Court of Stars and then a meager number of clears for the other ones (64 VoW, 75 WoA, etc), and then there's probably a fair number of runs not completed in time to add to that! In case you were wondering, he has around 53 days played on level 110 and he actually already has 69 million AP at the moment.

All joking aside, congratulations to Cerli on this achievement and you can check out his stream here, so hop on there and say gz!

This is actually slightly disturbing when you do the math... 53 days played out of a possible 101 since release. So without factoring in leveling he has been playing just WoW for more than 12 hours EVERY day. Impressive, but worrying.

Yes and no. It kinda depends on how much time he'll spend on it during Legion's entire "life". So a lot of players might frontload their game time and then quit, basically ending up spending the exact same amount of time in the game overall as "casuals" who tend to continue playing longer.

His achievement more than a little tempered by the fact it was on Unholy.

That was probably the main drive to get it done: maybe now he can do mediocre DPS at least! :D

Oh please...assuming he played by himself you don't suddenly go from that to just quitting or taking it casual.


It's infinitely more likely that he had a few people helping him out (as we all know lots of cutting edge guilds account share for progression) than it is that he's going to relax and take a break now. Looks like his guild just got Mythic Guarm down so he's in that category of a dedicated player.

Ok, but my point was that people do tend to do that. I myself tend to frontload playtime and then quit an expansion completely instead of playing a more reasonable amount over a longer course of time. I have no idea why you're hammering the "he didn't play alone" bit, since it's not terribly unlikely that someone would play 12h a day (also he streamed a lot, but I guess there's an explanation for that as well in ye olde conspiracy 12 people boosting 1 account for no real reason).

I would not be so sure about that.  During Vanilla, in real time it was 3 years.  In /played I had over 550 days on all my toons.  I never sat afk for more than 10 minutes and I never let anyone on my account.

People tend to frontload games, but there's a big difference between frontloading a game for a couple weeks (or even a month) where you eat, sleep, poop, and game and what's happened here which is three months of Legion. I guess the real argument should be do you actually consider a three month span to be frontloading? We're just under 15 weeks of Legion which is 105 days and that works out to 12 hour days for...again...105 days straight. Even if you game 20 hours every Sat/Sun you still need 8.8 hours Mon-Fri to make that work. If he's only got a 4 day work week and does that for three days? Still 6 hour gaming sessions every day for the other 4. Possible? Yup, can't deny that.

 

However, here's where I guess I find the most humor: Your attempt at justifying the theory of a one man scenario. The "Yes and no" response to when someone noted that this was disturbing when you math out the time requirements because if (IF) he stopped playing altogether he may, over the course of the expansion have just as much time if not less than other people. Sure, your logic checks out on a very simplistic level. Put his time next to someone else's and you wouldn't know any better, but you will not find very many people out there who would sign off of something as acceptable. You're kind of saying "Well, yeah eating 200,000 calories in a week may sound awful, but after that first week that guy might going to go down to only eating 1,000 a day and after a year is over with he could be eating just as many as someone who eats consistently"

 

There is really no way to polish the solo'd it scenario turd. It's extremely unhealthy behavior and attempting to claim otherwise is downright laughable. But honestly I can't say I'm surprised someone did it already.

Actually your logic comparing it to eating is the ridiculous one as the two activities have basically nothing in common. I can see you're very attached to this "he didn't solo and if he did it's not ok" theory so I'll just pick my words more carefully.

I never stated it was healthy or the right thing to do or whatever but people judging how other people live their lives are, IMO, pretty pathetic. If he liked to "waste" his life 50% more than you or me or other people who "only" play 6 hours a day or only play 1 hour or whatever it's just a matter of degrees. Obviously he doesn't have anything he'd rather do than play 12 hours for 3 months and guess what, that's totally fine, it's his time to do with as he pleases. That doesn't mean that everyone should do it, that it's the correct way to play the game or that it's healthy (whatever the hell THAT means). Basically people who laugh at "no lifers" but themselves play a game any amount of time are pretty big hypocrites because it's simply a matter of degrees and you don't get to choose that line for other people or determine what's "normal".

And I'm just assuming he's doing it solo, if he isn't then the whole discussion is irrelevant, but just because it took a lot of time to do doesn't prove it wasn't solo.

My point is, saying "that's crazy, I'd never do that" is fine. Saying "that's unhealthy he's wrong to do it" is not. Again that's just my opinion ofc, but I'm sure you yourself have indulged in something in your live too much and for too long, as long as you enjoy it and it isn't ACTUALLY damaging you in some way there's no reason not to.

I used to play an average of 16 hours a day 7 days a week from the launch of bc to the launch of WotLK.  I never slept more than 4 hours a day back then and if i had to work, well, i did not sleep at all.  I would typically get two days on one day off two days on again then two days off all 10 hour shifts, so i played 10 hours, worked ten hours, slept four, then on my days off 20 hours straight. Prior to getting sucked into WoW i was doing the same thingbut split equally in FFXI and SWG. 

 What can i say, I was young, and it was either that or get wasted where i was living at the time had nothing better to do than get drunk or screwed up on drugs because it was a dead town.

Point is, i can believe he played that all on his own.

Just stopping by to give the example that has just happened in Overwatch. We've just seen the first guy ever to reach the max level alone. He played for 1488 hours (total time spent in game, not including any queues, waiting, after-game screens etc.). The guy basically said that he has played 16-17 hours per day, since release. That's 6 months of playing like that. The guy said he had no job, did nothing but play.

I'm not sure whether to be happy or sympathetic for that individual.

He sounds pretty happy! He said he's never tired, he enjoys the challenge etc. etc.

If he's doing what he loves, then hey, fair enough. I hope I never have to play against him in competitive.

you know, this guy could be disabled and just plays WoW all day every day.

I know a guy that does that. he lays in bed (can barely get out of bed for restroom) and plays non stop in between naps.

I wouldn't just call him a no-lifer. what would you do if you were bed bound 99% of your life?

Definitely possible too, yeah! There's loads of reasons why people might play all day. It's that old thing of not being rude to random people, since you don't know everything about them.

      World Quests have had their rewards updated, demons are invading various parts of the Broken Shore and reputations with Legion factions beyond Exalted yield additional rewards.
      World Quests
      Had their rewards bumped up to item level 860+.

      Demon Assaults
      On PTRs, zones are periodically under attack and they switch every 3 hours, but it may be only to speed up testing. Once you zone in, you'll auto-accept the following quests if the zone you enter is under attack, for example Assault on Val'sharah. You have to complete 6 invasions in that area. Assaults are basically the same as World Quests. When a zone is invaded, no World Quests are available.
      An invasion is indicated by a big logo on the world map.

      Invasion quests also have different icons than regular World Quests.

      Demons are all over the place. You will be closing portals, killing various enemies including commanders.

      Flight Master Mount Change
      The flying mount used for transport across the Broken Shore has changed.


      Reputation Paragon
      If you've reached Exalted with Legion factions, every 20,000 additional reputation you'll get will award additional caches. We don't know if the caches have an increased chance to give you a Legendary or notable item upgrades, but let's hope the rewards are better, because you don't collect 20,000 reputation in the blink of an eye and getting an item level 835 that ends as a Chaos Crystal is all but rewarding. It's also worth noting that saving all reputation items for 7.2 isn't a bad idea as they will come in handy. Obtaining 10 caches rewards the Paragon of the Broken Isles achievement.

      The first micro-holiday, Call of the Scarab, brings with it a gold-making opportunity. Selling meat can be profitable.
      Warlord Gorchuk and Master Sergeant Fizzlebolt are Meat vendors and you can find them near the Scarab Gong in Silithus for the duration of the event. They allow the turn-in of 20 pieces of various meat for 20 Alliance Qiraji Commendations // 20 Horde Qiraji Commendations per turn-in for your faction.
      The following meat can be farmed and resold on the Auction House.

      Pet Battle Dungeons are here. So far, only Wailing Caverns are available for testing. It's a scenario with 7 stages and increasing difficulty, where you fight your way up to get an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone and eventually, Damp Pet Supplies.
      Pet Battle Dungeons
      If you have at least one level 25 pet, go to Dalaran and talk to Serr'ah. She will offer a quest called A Call from the Caverns.  Teleport to Orgrimmar and go to Crossroads. There you'll have to find Muyani. She offers another quest Wailing Critters, which rewards Ultimate Battle-Training Stone. Talk to her again and you will enter a scenario (Scenario: Wailing Critters) with 7 stages. Wailing Caverns is the only pet battle dungeon that's currently available and it functions like a scenario. You will be fighting pets and the difficulty increases as you progress through stages. You are able to Revive Battle Pets inside dungeons. When you complete the quest and turn it in, you will be offered another weekly quest, but this time, you won't be able to revive or heal your pets - Pet Battle Challenge: Wailing Caverns. When complete, you'll get Damp Pet Supplies. The bag contains some of the recently added pets. New Pets
      A list of new pets that have been added in 7.2 can be found here. Pet Battle Dungeons Screenshots

      Patch 7.2 adds a new dungeon called Cathedral of Eternal Night. Drops from existing dungeons had an item level bump, Karazhan has been split into two and Vantus Runes are coming for Mythic+ dungeons.
      Dungeon Changes
      Health of enemies inside dungeons has been increased. To compensate, the item level of items that drop inside dungeons has been increased. Normal difficulty - item level 825+ Heroic difficulty - item level 845+ Mythic difficulty - item level 865+ The changes are really good as dungeons will stay relevant throughout the expansion. In previous expansions, dungeons were only used for initial gearing and for the daily dungeon bonus. Karazhan has been split into Lower / Upper Karazhan and can be now accessed via Dungeon Finder. Mythic+ Dungeons
      Are receiving Vantus Runes in 7.2. You can use one per dungeon / week.
      Vantus Rune: Black Rook Hold Vantus Rune: Cathedral of Eternal Night Vantus Rune: Court of Stars Vantus Rune: Darkheart Thicket Vantus Rune: Eye of Azshara Vantus Rune: Halls of Valor Vantus Rune: Maw of Souls Vantus Rune: Neltharion's Lair Vantus Rune: Return to Karazhan (Lower) Vantus Rune: Return to Karazhan (Upper) Vantus Rune: Vault of the Wardens Vantus Rune: Violet Hold Vantus Rune: The Arcway Tomb of Sargeras Vantus Runes
