World First (West) Classic Level 60, with 360,000+ Viewers by Jokerd

Recommended Posts

The first level 60 (in the West) has arrived! Jokerd has managed to keep the lead he's had pretty much throughout the latter part of leveling and close out the competition on top. The AoE mob grind strategy turned out to be the the correct one, helped by the new layering tech which allows for much faster mob respawns. It took around 92 hours of real time (sleep, or what little he got, included) to get to the top, and he managed to do it with over 360,000 people watching him live on Twitch!

He went with a frost mage speed clearing build and was completely focused on the Plaguelands in the final dozen or so levels and we have a guide for his build ready right here!

Huge congratulations to Jokerd on his achievement, taking his own route through it and coming out on top! Now you can finally play the game. The rest of the field is significantly behind, sitting around level 56-57, which shows just how good Jokerd is. Not to mention the player base overall is hovering around the level 20 mark. As for the Asian server guilds, we don't know exactly where they're at, but it's entirely possible the already had a level 60 today, seeing as how they were in the lead in the early competition.

So much for the Method drama, the man literally just hosted Method channel 5 mins after he dinged and gave them like 200k+ viewers. What a guy.

Not sure twitch chat put that Virgin Method vs. Chad gnome thing on his screen. But yea it's always mostly chat.

Not true, the main point of grinding this way to 60 fast, especially as a Mage, is to make a huge bank of Gold and buy everything that is listed for low prices on the AH from people leveling. If you do it right, you will have infinite Gold throughout all of Classic just because prices will spike for a lot of things as people hit 60 and start preparing to raid and PvP.

      Blizzard have recently been sending out some more surveys for WoW Classic, this time related to changes that might be implemented for the "Classic Era" servers aka those that will not be progressing on to the Burning Crusade when it is released.

      The questions imply the possibility of something of a Classic+, with new features being added and the game possibly evolving past Vanilla into its own ecosystem, and lasting a long time to come.
      As spotted by Warcraft Tavern, there are several pages of questions asking about Classic Era servers, specifically:
      Advanced layering, where lower population realms would be combined into server groups and players would actually be able to interact between those servers. Possible new quality of life only additions to Vanilla Classic. Possible new content for Vanilla Classic, including "significant changes or new features" that might "dramatically change aspects of the game experience".

      Source.
      Check out the full post over at Warcraft Tavern with a few more questions related to switching over to BC at all and which server players would most like to play on related to new changes added.

      The Burning Crusade Classic Internal Alpha has begun.
      The wowdev2 branch has been recently updated with a new patch! The very first patch of the Burning Crusade Classic is 2.5.0 Build 37796. While we currently have no information when the game becomes available for testing for content creators, make sure to opt in to the Beta today!

      Achievements have come to Classic! Well, sort of, and not all of them. RinesThaix has put together about 140 achievements to collect, but the mod is constantly being updated so there should be more soon.
      The Classic Achievements addon lets you not only gather those points up but also share and compare them, as you can link them in chat!

      English and other languages are also supported.
      If you want to check out how it looks in action, here's MrGM taking it for a spin:

      Blizzard have stated that the BC Classic beta is coming soon, but didn't specify when exactly. Today the Battle.net launcher's app catalog was updated with the TBC Internal Alpha, visible only to Blizzard but datamineable nonetheless!
      Right at the bottom there, the Internal Alpha most likely won't last too long and many have speculated that the beta won't be too long either, as there aren't as many issues to be dealt with as there were for Vanilla Classic. The release date is up in the air but hopefully Blizzard won't put it too close to patch 9.1, as many players will want to play both.
      In any case all we can do now is make sure we've opted-in to the beta (here) and wait!

      The level 58 boost option that is offered with the arrival of  Burning Crusade Classic has caused quite a bit of controversy and Blizzard have now tried to clarify the details on it a little, clarifying that the boosts will only be available on the new BC realms, while the Classic Era realms (where characters will stay if they don't transfer to the new BC  realms) will not have the boost available.
      Boost (source)
      Hello.
      I think it might be helpful to note that what we’re now calling WoW Classic Era realms start at Level 1, and we feel the same as we did two years ago: no Boost would ever be needed (or appropriate) there. When we originally laid out our principles for WoW Classic, the 1-60 experience was the only thing to which we could refer.
      Burning Crusade Classic begins at level 58, and we’re configuring this new Boost service to avoid minimizing the accomplishments of existing players or skipping any new content at launch. It’s for players who want a way to quickly join their friends in Outland.
