Doubleagent Has Hit 120 with Only Herb and Mining!

Recommended Posts

MJSmeDp.jpg
 

Everyone's favorite panda is back and has finished up his Battle for Azeroth quest! As with previous expansions, Doubleagent has dinged max level without ever having left the Wandering Isle and without ever having picked a faction. He does this solely by mining and herbalism, with a paltry 20XP for each node, so it's taken him quite a while to finish up. The final level alone took 8 days with the full journey having started with the expansion's launch, the first 111 ding coming a day after BfA arrived.

He's also gained a bit of a following for this last leg, that finished earlier today. You can check out the final moments as well as the last 1 and a half hours below:

Despite the 'no-life' memes above, I'm pretty impressed by the dedication DA shows to his little project, even six years after Mists came out. It's just a fun little quirk of the WoW community that makes me smile every expansion, come rain or shine, I know a few months after launch DA will hit cap again.

Congrats i guess, i personally don't see the point in it, since you don't get anything in the game for doing it and it seems so long-winded for no return.

Maybe he get's fun out of it. If that's the case he's getting more out of herb gathering and mining than I get out of BfA ?

He has ton of notoriety for this project.

Not just here but on the official forums, MMO-Champion and even Blizzard blues know about this project.

I think it’s a really cool thing he’s doing.  Obsessive, silly, no title(s) etc but really a unique thing that someone is max level without a faction.

So if he turns War Mode on do both sides get to kill him?  Also Im interested to know how much gold this dude has.  Hell I made over a mil back when Cata launched and that was only going from 80-81 with Mining.

Well, he was featured in the Guinness Book of World Records gaming edition a couple years back. I doubt that was his goal from the beginning, but that's some reward on its own.

Remember that he can't send his loot to another character because he hasn't a faction. He can't sell on the AH, he has to sell all his loot to a NPC Vendor... but still interesting how much it is just from the pure amount of stuff he had to sell.

Different types of gamer I guess. Personally I love it when people find their own way to play a game without being prompted by in game rewards. Like doing a full pacifist run of a game where you don't kill anything, no rewards for it except your own sense of accomplishment.

If memory serves, War Mode can only be turned on in Ogrimmar and Stormwind. ^_^

There's no PvP on Panda Isle, since there are no factions at that point for this race.

He has "the Chosen" title, which requires you to have finished Mythic Trial of Valor without dying - and it was removed in 8.0, so it had to be done on-level. So presumably the guy is not just some novelty act.

      New players are forced to play Battle for Azeroth, before heading to the Dragonflight. However, there's an easy workaround to circumvent that.
      Create a new Class Trial character in the game.

      The Class Trial will be a Level 60 character, which should unlock Chromie Time for all characters on the new account. No longer will you be limited to Battle for Azeroth content and dungeons during leveling.

      The legend is back! Doubleagent started leveling the Neutral Pandaren in Dragonflight and is now at Level 61.
      It took under 12 hours to level the Neutral Pandaren Shaman from 60 to 61 on the Wandering Isle. We'll be back with another update when the Neutral Pandaren hits 70.

      Blizzard have addressed issues players have been having with their UI profiles, where they would lose all of them. The problems are related to disconnects and there is a hotfix coming soon.
      UI Profiles Missing Fix (Source)
      We’ve seen this happen to players who experienced the bad luck of getting disconnected while loading into the game. We’ve developed a hotfix for that specific scenario, and the hotfix should be coming to all realms soon.
      But the hotfix won’t retroactively recreate what was lost. To make sure you keep your custom UI (and so that you can use it elsewhere, if you like), you’ll want to export and save it outside the game.
      While in-game, hit and then:
      Select Edit Mode. Select the layout you wish to export from the dropdown. Open the dropdown and select the Share option. Select the Copy To Clipboard sub-option. Create a blank text file on your PC, and paste the string you just copied into the new file. Save that text file somewhere safe. To use a UI that you previously saved to a text file:
      Copy the entire text from the text file. Go into Edit Mode. In the layout dropdown, select Import. Paste the text from your clipboard into the Import Text window. Give it a name and click the Import button.

      It seems the Dragonflight launch is having some issues, as we're seeing plenty of players have some issues.
      We'll be updating this post as more reports come in, but the main message is - if you're having trouble logging in or getting to the Dragon Isles, you're not the only one.
      This last one is just too good to believe, as Raszageth's timing could not have been better:
      Another tragic tale:
      Some of those that made it through decided to show some solidarity to their party members, and use their time in the Isles wisely:
      Another warning to always think before you hearth:
      Say what you will about Shadowlands, but it had a smooth launch, and players are already re-evaluating their views on the now former expansion:
      Some players didn't even know how lucky they were, as they made it to the Dragon Isles just fine, played a little, but then DARED to log out:
      Then there's the usual source of trouble for a game:
      The greatest horror of all: some players can't even leave the Shadowlands due to the world server being down:
      And the memes have started already:
      ___________________________________________________________
      Original post:
      From long or infinite loading screens to the Dragon Isle boats just not showing up, with "unknown time until arrival" there's a lot happening at the expansion's launch.
      After the long waits for the boat Blizzard finally spawned a portal to the Dragon Isles, but those that entered faced long and/or infinite loading screens, and some are just getting "Transnsfer aborted: instance not found" errors.
      Even those that made the original boats didn't quite make it across.
      And then there's those that don't even have world servers!
