Neutral Pandaren Pandemia Reaches Level 100 with Just Herbalism and Mining

Recommended Posts

Following in the footsteps of Doubleagent, who has reached Level 120 without leaving Wandering Isle, here's Pandémia, who wants to achieve the same feat before Shadowlands goes live because the new expansion will decrease experience gains from gathering professions, making the grind even harder!

On August 5, we posted an article on Pandémia reaching Level 85, and today, the player has now reached Level 100, so there are just 20 levels left to reach the current BfA cap of Level 120.

Shadowlands makes it harder for Neutrals with around 60% less XP from gathering, so I need to hurry. Lvl 100! from r/wow

Blizzard is reducing experience gains from gathering professions by 60% in the Shadowlands, so the goal is really simple: Reach Level 120 with just Herbalism and Mining before the new expansion goes live.

That would have been impressive if it was not for the fact that DoubleAgent did it long before him and without exp buff.

It's still impressive, just imagine the hours of grinding behind it without going crazy.

I didn't realise that. That sucks. Gathering currently feels worthwhile for your XP bar, which in turn makes professions feel doable because you're not slowing yourself down dramatically by stopping for nodes. Perhaps the quicker level pace will make up for it.

Without taking anything away from it, because that dude is indeed insane, this is actually the sort of grinding I find easier. Normally you might have background music while playing, but here you have foreground music and background grinding.

Still insane.

Never see the point to people doing this, but each to their own i guess, it just seems so pointless to me.

Because they can. I don't see it as any different than the "no sphere grid wakka only" guides for FFX

It is in some respect, but it's not newsworthy until he reaches cap imo, and even then it's a quick gz and back to the world of the sane. Someone already did it, and without an exp buff.

It's a goal, I suppose. Something to guide you. Might be satisfying to work towards. Sometimes I set my eyes on random things ingame and then feel lost once I achieve them. 

Also something that few other people can claim to have done. Maybe that's cool too? I mean sure, Doubleagent did it already. It's not 'first'. But in a game of however many million players being able to say 'I'm one of only two people who've done this' is preeeeetty rare.

Yup. I used to do speed runs in vanilla and TBC out of admiration for Joana, whenever a new server was launched. I was actually the first 70 on Cairne because of this. Doesn't mean anything, was just something fun to do because I could and I had the time to do so.

Another unnecessary post just to generate website traffic... Why would anyone care for this? Next time: "Guy creates lvl1 character to do xyz in the distant future. Stay tuned."

Yeah except there's at least 2 who have done it, he's racing someone else doing it now, and there's more already doing it just not to the same speed.

      It seems there's a much easier way to handle Devos, the final boss of the Spires of Ascension, as many players have been using this extremely powerful cheese/creative use of game mechanics/exploit to speed things up and make the encounter trivial.
      As spotted by the WoW Highlights Youtube channel, the method actually kind of breaks the boss, as Devos does none of her mechanics after the cheese, and it's pretty easy to pull off too. While this seems like an extremely obvious exploit, it's interesting to know that something very similar happened back in King's Rest, where you could do the same thing to Mchimba the Embalmer, the second boss, and Blizzard actually allowed that, even in the MDI, as Ellesmere points out and explains this new Spires method:

      You can see the results of the method here, as the boss just does nothing after the first spear throw interrupts her:

      And here are two more examples, where we can actually see the method being done directly (in the first two examples):
      This particular one seems like it will be getting fixed fast by Blizzard, however, as it is the final boss and the method basically removes the majority of the fight and makes it very trivial.

      Here we are in Nathria week 12 where there's still a lot of movement, with Retribution and Arcane jumping unexpectedly, heading into the upper reaches of the rankings. Frost has gone back down after its surge,sticking to the middle of the pack in the higher percentiles, as Balance, Affliction and Fire remain at their top 3 spots.

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.

      And here's a look at Heroic this week as well, where things really don't change much week-to-week, but it's still a nice comparison to the higher performing Mythic players.

      It appears Sylvanas got ahold of the Helm of Domination replica in the mail before Illusion4021, who received the helm shattered...
      After damaged Charity Server Blades arrived to collectors last year, something similar seems to affect another collectible, namely, Helm of Domination, a special-event item available for almost $300. 
      Reddit user Illusion4021 today shared an image of the shattered helm they received in the mail on Reddit.

      Apparently, they talked to Customer Service, but they cannot send a replacement given how limited the supplies are, so the only option is to send it back and receive a refund or keep the broken helm.
      Card
      The shattered helm has quickly become a source of jokes because Sylvanas shattered it in the game before we enter the Shadowlands.

      Would you send the helm back or glue it back together?

      Blizzard just outlined the changes coming to Rogue's Serrated Bone Spike (Necrolord Covenant Ability) in Patch 9.0.5.
      (Source)
      In patch 9.0.5, we’re reworking the Rogue Necrolord Covenant ability Serrated Bone Spike. We’re now testing this set of changes:
      Rogue Serrated Bone Spike initial damage increased by 300%. Resolved an issue that prevented Serrated Bone Spike’s initial damage from dealing a critical strike. Serrated Bone Spike now grants 1 combo point plus 1 per active bone spike after it strikes the target. Serrated Bone Spike no longer refunds a charge and gets removed when the target is healed to full. Serrated Bone Spike is now removed when the target leaves combat. The design intention for this button is: impale your enemy with a bone spike from Maldraxxus, inflicting a permanent damage over time on them. We found that while the ability performed well in situations where multiple targets persisted for long times, it was unattractive elsewhere.
      Greatly increasing the spell’s initial damage should improve its performance in the ‘other’ situations, including those where the enemy doesn’t live very long. However, we then feel we need to address a problem with the ability in PvP. Previously, if the afflicted target was healed to full, the damage over time effect would be removed and a charge of the spell refunded. The way this played out was the effect constantly being removed and charges constantly being refunded. As a result, the Rogue is compelled to constantly hit this button. With an increase to the initial damage component, this could be problematic. So we’re removing that mechanic, and we’re removing the bleed entirely whenever a player leaves combat.

      This week's Patch 9.0.5 Build 37774 was marked as Release Candidate, but when will the patch hit live servers?
      Something really important to keep in mind when determining the release date of Patch 9.0.5 is the maximum Renown cap that we will reach next week.
      Shadowlands Release Week: Renown level 3; Week of December 1: Renown level 6; Week of December 8: Renown level 9; Week of December 15: Renown level 12; Week of December 22: Renown level 15; Week of December 29: Renown level 18; Week of January 5: Renown level 21; Week of January 12: Renown level 24; Week of January 19: Renown level 26; Week of January 26: Renown level 28; Week of February 2: Renown level 30; Week of February 9: Renown level 32; Week of February 16: Renown level 34; Week of February 23: Renown level 36; Week of March 2: Renown level 38; Week of March 9: Renown level 40. Although there are no new Renown levels in Patch 9.0.5, there are a few changes coming to the weekly Renown quests! If you reach Renown 40, the weekly quest to gather 1,000 Anima will give you 1,500 Gold instead of Renown.
      On top of that, if your character recruits the maximum amount of Souls for their Covenant, your weekly quest to rescue Souls from the Maw will give you 500 Anima.
      (Source)
      Once players reach 40 Renown with their Covenant, the weekly quest to gather 1000 Anima will now award you with 1500 gold. Once players have recruited the maximum amount of Souls for their Covenant, your weekly quest to rescue Souls from the Maw will now award you with 500 Anima. Both changes have been outlined in the preliminary 9.0.5 patch notes, which is why we think the patch will release one week after we hit maximum Renown, and that's March 16 for the US region and March 17 for the EU.
