Popular YouTuber Re-Levels, Re-Gears Only 2 Days After Dying to Make it to OnlyFangs Molten Core Hardcore Raid

Recommended Posts

Popular League of Legends creator - turned World of Warcraft Hardcore player Rav achieved a pretty intense feat most thought wouldn't be possible. We already talked about the popular streamer guild OnlyFangs and their first raid last weekend, and it seems one particular Hunter slot was almost left available mere days before the raid.

Two days before the OnlyFangs Molten Core raid, Rav died at level 60 during the MC attunement quest, falling prey to Onyxia's guards.

With the news that one of the guild's most beloved content creators probably won't be making their first MC raid, opinions were split on whether it is even possible to level up a fresh character, get geared and attuned in two days, with many streamers even taking up bets if Rav can do it.

Well, lo and behold, the results of his journey are documented in his latest video:

He managed to level to 60 in 34 hours, mostly with the help of sister guild Fangsly (crewed by many of the various streamers' fans), and not sleeping for two days straight.

His YouTube Series is a pretty popular (and pretty great) one. It's a 14 part log of his journey from the start of his first character until the end of successfully beating Ragnaros, with videos averaging around 250,000 views

Since Rav plays Hunter, his pet boar named Howard features prominently in the videos, and a lot of general shenanigans ensue as he constantly tries to level up and stay alive in HC WoW, with him pranking the whole guild during the MC run with a well timed raid message and a Feign Death. The whole series is worth a watch, so head on over and check it out if you're looking for some boisterous but pretty funny videos. You can also check his stream out over here.

While interesting, this certainly puts on display the weight followers carry in assisting the streamers they watch. I'm curious if any of these people would be able to do what they do without so much help from others, especially in hardcore. Staying up for two days to ding 60 in 34 hours is a completely impossible feat alone, as on hardcore, too many mistakes will be made that will lead to death.

That said, no sleep for two days is a serious health risk and this sort of behavior is not something that should be celebrated but frowned upon. It's just a game and not worth harming or even killing yourself just to accomplish a thing.

I wouldn't go that far. Many of us have played WoW for days and we're all fine. People certainly need to know their limits but should also be allowed to enjoy themselves how they want. It's not a healthy thing, sure, but neither are many, MANY other things people do for fun. I'd never be able to pull something like that off today (nor would I want to), for example, but 20 years ago it would have been fine. It's different for everyone, of course, and again, the key thing is knowing your limit and taking care of yourself.

You can frown on it, that's fine, but to say that it should be frowned upon in general, by everyone, is something I can't agree on.

It's bad, regardless of one's personal feelings on the matter. Your body needs rest to repair and run through its cycles. Staying up for two days leads to disruption of those cycles and will lead to exhaustion and dehydration at a minimum. Those are two very dangerous problems that can lead serious issues including death. It is nothing to dismiss and certainly it should not be celebrated.

Health aside, in terms of legal liability, reporting on such actions and supporting them (either directly or indirectly) creates the potential for Icy Veins to be held responsible for harm to those that read these articles. If Icy Veins is showing support for such behavior (yes, presenting such stories in a positive light without mentioning the health risks and without dissuading such behavior is seen as support) can and does lead to legal action against such organizations. It's just a really bad decision and needlessly puts others at risk.

People are going to do what they choose, but I would never advocate for them doing something that I know is a risk to their health or well-being. That's just stupid.

I am going to defend this Icy Veins and Starym and say in no way is this post encouraging anyone to do something similar. Rav chose to spend his time levelling constant for 2 days thats by choice not by force and would have known the health issues that could potentially come along with it. I am impressed he was able to do it doesnt mean I am going to do it myself nor will anyone else. Maybe you need to take a step back and re read the post

Not even close. I disagree with Starym and that's the end of it. There's nothing "trolly" about any of my posts.

And that's fine, but I disagree and believe it's a bad idea to in any way be supportive of such behavior.

      The class tuning has arrived and we have even more changes than initially announced, as well as buffs for Gnomeregan Salvage!
      February 20 (Source)
      WoW Classic: Season of Discovery
      Increased the number of crafting materials found in Boxes of Gnomeregan Salvage and slightly increased the drop rate of Grime-Encrusted Salvage throughout Gnomeregan. Druid Berserk now also increases the number of targets struck by Lacerate while it is active. Starsurge bonus damage to Starfire increased to 80% (was 66%). Corrected a bug causing this bonus damage to be lower than intended at level 40. Swipe now scales with attack power, gaining 10% of attack power as damage. Threat caused by Swipe greatly increased. Rip duration increased to 16 seconds (was 12 seconds). Hunter Raptor Strike damage when the Melee Specialist rune is active is now normalized weapon damage. Paladin Fixed an issue where Fiery Weapon enchantment and Seal of Martyrdom were triggering each other. Neither can be triggered by the other any longer. Fixed an issue where Fiery Blaze and Fiery Weapon enchantments could trigger or be triggered by Seal of Martyrdom. Those interactions do not happen anymore. Priest Mind Spike damage increased by 10%. Void Plague damage increased by 10%. Shadow Word: Death base damage before modifiers decreased by 40% and spellpower coefficient adusted to 42.9% (was 64.3%). Developers’ notes: Overall, this should result in a 33-40% damage reduction on Shadow Word: Death, depending on the amount of spellpower the priest has. Shadow Word: Death has been doing a larger percentage of overall priest damage than intended, and we feel like this could begin to put additional pressure on healers in PvE, as spellpower gear improves and the damage that priests inflict on themselves continues to scale upwards. It could also prove to be increasingly oppressive in PvP, as it’s an instant attack that can be used on the move, from range, with very little counterplay. Rogue Shuriken Toss bounce range reduced to 10 yards (was 15 yards). Developers’ notes: This should reduce the chance of it bouncing a little too far and pulling extra packs in dungeons. It now matches the range of other chain spells like Chain Lightning and Avenger’s Shield. Shaman Fixed an issue where Fire Nova did not benefit properly from Elemental Mastery. The Dual-Wield Specialization rune now provides 50% bonus damage to your offhand weapon swings. Lava Lash now gains 50% increased damage if Flametongue Weapon is imbued on your offhand. The proc chance of Maelstrom Weapon is now roughly 50% higher when your main hand weapon or your two-hand weapon is imbued with Windfury Weapon.

      Blizzard has acknowledged a bug related to the Gnomeregan raid lockout not resetting as it should after the weekly maintenance in Season of Discovery Phase 2. They're looking into the problem and will share more details shortly.
      (Source)
      Greetings,
      We are aware of an issue that caused some players who became saved to Gnomeregan between 7:00AM PST on Monday, Feb 19th and 7:00AM PST this morning (Tuesday Feb, 20th) to not properly have their raid lockout reset during today’s maintenance as expected.
      We are currently investigating this issue and hope to have more information very soon. We greatly appreciate your patience and we apologize for the inconvenience.
      – The WoW Classic Team

      Blizzard has commented on AoE threat in Season of Discovery Phase 2 and explained their aim for a balance where classes can reliably manage 2-3 mobs with difficulties increasing beyond that. 
      This approach, reminiscent of Vanilla WoW, emphasizes strategic crowd control and aggro management over the AoE-focused playstyle found in retail WoW.

      There's a lot of class changes in today's SoD Phase 2 hotfixes, as well as plenty of improvements to the STV Blood Moon PvP event and even a little something for Classic Era! There were also improvements for the PvP event related to performance, as Josh Greenfield aka Aggrend commented:
      And here are the hotfixes.
      February 16 (Source)
      WoW Classic: Season of Discovery
      Druid Starsurge was incorrectly getting 30% additional critical strike chance when Eclipse (Lunar) was active. It now only gets 30% increased critical strike chance from Eclipse (Solar). Hunter Chimera Shot - Scorpid is now properly mitigated by Weapon Chains and reduction to Disarm effects. Paladin Fixed an issue where Seal of Righteousness ranks 4 and higher did less damage than rank 3. This fix has been applied to Season of Discovery and Classic Era. Priest Spirit of Redemption will no longer be prevented from triggering for Priests whose Dispersion or Pain Suppression is on cooldown. Each Priest now correctly creates their own separate stack of Mind Spike effects on the target, and consumes only their own stack. Fixed an issue where Prayer of Mending was double dipping with Spiritual Healing, and was also increasing by 10% per bounce on top of that. Shaman Fixed an issue where the benefit of Dual Wield Specialization rune could be lost for Shamans when swapping weapon configurations. Fixed an issue where Stormstrike would sometimes do offhand damage despite no offhand equipped. The range on Decoy Totem is now the correctly intended 30 yards, matching the radius of its effect preventing movement impairment. Warlock Subjugate Demon used against players in Metamorphosis now has a 10 second duration, with diminishing duration like other crowd-control effects used on players. It is considered a Charm effect like Mind Control. Stranglethorn Vale PvP Event Warlocks and Hunters participating in the Blood Moon will now resurrect with their last active pet. Fixed an interaction with Blood Moon and Spirit of Redemption resurrecting the fallen Priest earlier than intended. Fixed an issue with Blood Coin turn-ins when a player is the victim of Subjugate Demon or Mind Control. Drained of Blood during the Blood Moon event now also grants immunity to movement impairing effects. Fixed an issue where stacks of Blood for the Blood Loa could sometimes exceed the intended 255. The Chosen of the Blood Loa will now be visible in the spirit world. WoW Classic Era
      Paladin Fixed an issue where Seal of Righteousness ranks 4 and higher did less damage than rank 3. This fix has been applied to Season of Discovery and Classic Era.

      Update: Blizzard added some nerfs and buffs to DPS Priests, which you can check out here.

      Here comes more class tuning for SoD Phase 2, as next week's reset brings changes for Druids, Shamans and Mages, with the Paladin changes already live now.
      Class Tuning (Source)
      With scheduled weekly maintenance in each region, we’ll make the following adjustments to a few classes in Season of Discovery.
      Druid
      Swipe now scales with attack power, gaining 10% of attack power as damage. Threat caused by Swipe has been greatly increased. The Berserk rune now also causes Lacerate to hit 3 targets. The duration of Rip has been increased to 16 seconds (was 12 seconds). The next Starfire cast after the Starsurge rune ability now has its damage increased to 80% (was 66%). Corrected a bug causing this bonus damage to be lower than intended at level 40. Shaman
      The Dual-Wield Specialization rune now provides 50% bonus damage to your offhand weapon swings. Lava Lash now gains 50% increased damage if Flametongue Weapon is imbued on your offhand. The proc chance of Maelstrom Weapon is now roughly 50% higher when your main hand weapon or your two-hand weapon is imbued with Windfury Weapon. Mage
      Conjure Water (Rank 5) will now conjure a full stack of 20 with each cast (was 2). Developers’ notes: The tooltip will still indicate that only 2 are conjured. We hope to adjust the tooltip in the future. Paladin
      Art of War now reduces the mana cost of Exorcism and Holy Shock by 80% when active. Beacon of Light base mana cost has been greatly decreased. The Paladin changes above were activated on all Season of Discovery realms yesterday, February 14. In this region, the rest of the changes above will go live on February 20.
