World First Shadowlands Level 60: Monkeylool

Recommended Posts

JgQN6nI.jpg

Update: We now know how they managed to pull it off! In the same manner as the Echo group was using before they called it quits (running Necrotic Wake the whole time) which they did because you can't queue for the dungeon after level 56. Monkeylool and company actually managed to circumvent that, as you actually CAN queue the Wake if at least one party member is below 56. And so, as Monkeylool's party member Rixers explained in the twitch chat afterwards, they 3-manned the dungeon and had a 6 character roster, so they could swap a lower level character in to gain access! Part of the way was also done by Monkeylool questing normally outside of the dungeon while the others cleared it, then as they got to the end he'd zone in and get the massive dungeon completion XP, and then go back to questing until the dungeon was cleared again. We're not quite 100% sure about this last part, so hopefully a video emerges soon!

______________________________________________________

And it's done! The first Shadowlands level 60 has arrived! Monkeylool from the guild OTK on Al'akir EU has leveled his Monk to the new post-squish maximum in just over 3 hours from launch! We're not quite sure what the exact amount of time was since a video of the run hasn't been shared yet, but we do know the results!

We also got word from the World second(s) level 60, as Bastu from the top guild Pieces and Polihanna got it done in 3 hours 20 minutes, via questing!

You can also check out the entire questing journey of Polihanna and Bastu over here.

Also if we look beyond Shadowlands, this is actually the third World First level 60, as we had Vanilla, Classic and now SL! In addition to that, the leveling speeds have been trending downwards in retail, as Legion took around 5 and a half hours, BfA under 5 and now the 3-ish hour mark!

We hope to see a video of the World First run appear soon, as apparently Monkeylool hadn't set up a stream, but which ever method to get to 60 was used it was very effective!  You can still join Rixers and co on his stream right now, as the infinite Live to Win dancing continues!

      It appears that the Weekly Maximum Valor cap has been removed on the 9.0.5 PTR. The patch releases this week on March 9.
      Previously, players could only earn 750 Valor each week, as shown in the screenshot below.

      On Thursday, Blizzard announced in a blue post that they were increasing Valor caps on the 9.0.5 PTR. Most importantly, they also added that there would be a cap of 1,500 on how much Valor a character can hold at a time, which seems to have been scrapped in the end.
      Currently, on the PTR, it looks like Blizzard has entirely removed the Weekly Valor cap in a hotfix (see missing tooltip). The Total Maximum cap has been increased to 8,750 Valor.

      We're still waiting for Blizzard to confirm if the Weekly Cap has been indeed scrapped or if it's just a bug.

      ChromedDragon created a map of Draenor before Garrosh showed up. Check it out!
      On the map, we see how the individual Orc clans completely surrounded the Draenei from almost all directions.

      Tanks are getting a lot of focus in Shadowlands with the increased Mythic+ focus, and it's only going to get more intense with the next pach, so we rounded up some funny stories, depressing interactions, memes and similar. Here's a grab-bag of tanking experiences from many players.
      While all tanks are always needed, things change around the +15 mark, as it's not just DPS that have this particular experience, and if you're one of the least popular/worst specs...
      Then there's this type of terrible, which hasn't really changed that much since, well, forever, as there will always be assholes out there, but there really do seem to be more and more of them these days, especially in Mythic+...

      And even if you do well, it's never enough for some people:
      But, sometimes it's quite a different feeling, as however terrible players might be to you, you're still a tank damn it!
      And there are some perfect moments that can only come from tanking, including this one titled "My greatest M+ tanking Achievement...":

      If the group gets really annoying, you can always have the last word too:

      And finally, if you get REALLY tired of all the DPS not interrupting, the healer selfishly trying to keep those idiots that stand in every mechanic under the sun alive instead of keeping you above 80%, or people dare to question your route, you can always just go with your own kind!

      The buff increases Experience and Reputation gains by 10% for 1 hour, and it is recommended to turn in weekly quests only after you have the buff for extra reputation. You can farm reputation beyond Exalted for Reputation Paragon rewards.
      Profession Quests
      If you're missing some crucial skill points to max out your Professions, do not forget that the Darkmoon Faire Profession quests can grant you 5 skill points! You no longer need to have 75 skill points for the quests either, so head over to Darkmoon Island to get them.
