Gatherman the Pacifist Reaches Level 50 With Herbalism and Mining in 17 Hours

Recommended Posts


Gatherman is a peaceful Vulpera Rogue that has taken the "war" out of Warcraft and reached Level 50 in the pre-patch entirely by gathering nodes and herbs without killing creatures, players, or completing quests.

Obviously, this isn't Doubleagent, but it's interesting to see how long it takes to level up a character to max level without completing any quests, killing creatures, players, and leaving the starting area after the squish that came in the Shadowlands pre-patch.


It took the player approximately 17 hours to level up from 10 to 50, as nodes give more than 1K Experience at latter levels, and the gathering method seems even faster than usual questing if you take your time and read through the quests. The player said the leveling would have been even faster with rested XP.

If you use Chromie Time, all nodes will give you full XP for your level even if you're at like 300 Mining gathering copper.

I honestly can't see this. No flying until lvl 30 and riding around, one is bound to come across mobs next to or near the nodes/herbs, even with a rogue.  Plus the fact, it takes time to gather enough mats to reach 75 much less 300 (the most I have ever made in regular wow was 295 with the last 5 coming from darkmoon faire.).   It's nice to see that it possibly can be done, though.

I made both a Panda Hunter and a Vulpera Rogue and yes, now I can see. I still don't see how in 17 hours though. The hunter killed as was needed to get the herb or node.  The rogue was a bit slower, but once I reached 17 hours, I stopped with the Rogue and was no where near lvl 30 much less 50 (flying would have made it easier).  The hunter I am proud to say has picked and mined and killed her way to 45 but so far it has been 1 Day 17 hours and some odd minutes of play.  

The one thing I have noticed even with Chromie TIme, the amount of exp from picking a herb or node goes down after the 1st or 2nd pick. For example, at 44 I was getting 1500 exp. But after the 3rd pick, it went down to 1400, 1300, 1100, 900, 800, and finally with no rest, 750 exp per what ever, Even then various nodes sometimes went up to 780 or down to 711.  I have no idea whether it is Blizzard playing with crap or what.  And I was not in SL - heck I don't even own SL.  Valley of the Four Winds and various other areas.

I have a level 50 pacifist druid. As happened before in a previous expansion, Orgrimmar is phased whenever I enter. I Have the quest to go to Icecrown (opening Shadowlands quest line) but I never get the portal. Obvious to me now, I could never complete that quest line without lots of killing. I got around this in previous expansions by getting a mage portal to the new expansion areas. If I try the same method to either Oribos or one of the three other areas will it succeed? Would I be able to open portals to them if I start in Oribos? Thanks.

      We're back to Nathria after all the BlizzConline action, where we're taking another look at the DPS standings and we have one huge change, as Frost Mages have soared into the top, landing in 4th/5th place after being near the bottom of the pile last week! We'll also be taking a look at the rise of Frost and the stagnation of the already not so hot Havoc down at the lower end of things, as Dutchmagoz and Wordup talks about their situations.

      And here's a look at Heroic this week as well, where Frost is way back down as it was last week for Mythic.

      The Lost Codex interviewed Steve Danuser and Morgan Day, and we learned more about the option to transmog each shoulder separately.
      Morgan Day revealed that the feature is probably still on the table, but some shoulders were not designed to be used separately, and they want to avoid clipping, which is probably the reason why Blizzard scrapped the option for Shadowlands launch.
      Early in the Beta, we saw that there was potential for individual shoulder transmog pieces, which sparked a lot of interest in the community, but it never made it to live in 9.0. Is that still on the table? Can you comment on individual shoulder transmogging and if it's coming or not?
      Morgan Day: This is a great question. I will follow up on this one because I know it was something that we were aiming to get done for Shadowlands launch, but that one in particular we knew might have run into some technical issues.
      There's a lot of history to draw from without transmog sets, and there were some very asymmetrical shoulder pieces that were crafted with never thinking towards having them transmogged individually.
      I think it is a really cool feature that we know players are excited about, and I imagine we're still doing our best to make progress towards that.
      You can watch the whole interview below. The video starts playing at where they talk about transmogging each shoulder separately.

      This is one of those "obviously not what we hope it is, but maaaybe?" things as Henry Cavill, who was part of many discussions about who should play Arthas last year, just posted an interesting image to his Instagram, as spotted by Warchief_Hammerhands.
      This is 99.99% Witcher-related, and the caption is just a tease (whether it's actually aimed at the Arthas hype or not), but we have seen the actor actually talk about the role of the Lich King previously. In several Instagram replies to one of the many fan photoshops of himself as Arthas, Cavill did seem to show some solid interest in the role, and it all started with an emoji response to this post:
      And here's the complex response, with Blizzard getting tagged:

      He then engaged in some fan interaction, starting with a nod at the previous rumors of him being the next Bond:
      And great response to a fair warning related to Cavill's missing his Man of Steel casting call because he was playing WoW:

      Many have actually commented that Cavill might be a bit too old for Arthas at this point, but considering the events on 9.1 and where the story might be going, who's to say an older, post-Maw Arthas isn't in the cards? It seems like a perfect stunt commercial type thing to tease a potentially bigger project like a TV series or even movie. After all, Metzen himself approves of Cavill in the role!
      But, getting back down to earth, this seems much more Witcher-related, with Season 2 of the show  still being shot, as Covid slowed things down. The Instagram post is probably just a tease that they're still shooting the show (possibly the finale, as the script seems to be relevant) and we're just getting too excited. But why shouldn't we get excited? A Warcaft TV show is just too good of a fit, even an animated one, so any movement we can stir up there can only be positive!

      We're sure you're all Cavilled-out at this point, but there's another development in the fan/Chris Metzen/Christie Golden casting of Superman as Arthas, as the man (of steel) himself has replied to a recent photoshop of him as the Lich King over on Instagram. We start off with two cute/amazing fan interactions, as someone in the thread asked him what his WoW name was and the reply was pure gold:
      The second was a fair warning related to Cavill's missing his Man of Steel casting call because he was playing WoW:
      And finally there's the big one, even thought it's small, as Cavill tagged Blizzard with a thinking emoji:

      And while usually with social media posts like this you'd assume they were made by some PR intern or similar, considering Cavill's love of WoW and the specificity of some of the replies, we can be pretty sure he was the one responding. Here's the full Instagram post:
      And just in case you missed it the first time, here's that story of Cavill missing the call that he got the Superman part:
