Insane WoW World Record: Level 70 in 48 Minutes!!

Recommended Posts


Well, Mists of Pandaria Remix is breaking all kinds of barriers in WoW. From being the first event of its kind in the game, to the many transmogs players are getting, crazy powerful characters, and now our fastest level 70 ever!

Well, sort of. Previously leveling went from 1 to max level, but in Remix players start at 10. But considering just how fast 1-10 goes it's pretty much negligible. But enough introing, how did this happen??

Shiekrunner managed to get to level 70 in 48 minutes and 30 seconds. Yep. That is a thing that happened. But it wasn't JUST the crazy leveling speeds of Remix that got the job done, however. There was a whole guild behind the Demon Hunter, some old-school prep including pet battles, and more! The entire run is recorded and ready to watch below, but let's go through just what was involved in getting this crazy speed done.

This certainly wasn't a 1-man operation, as Shiekrunner had a 9-player group from the Tatortreiniger guild behind him helping out, downing raid bosses and getting them ready for him to loot the XP. The group consisted of five ilvl 476-ish players, one 380, and, of course, a level 20 Monk pushing the dungeons! In said dungeons a Demon Hunter was running skips in Scarlet Halls and Temple of the Jade Serpent (which some may frown upon, as it's ye-olde creative use of game mechanics, aka jumping through and around walls) and the rest go on branching paths for optimal XP.

They did this running random Heroics for the bonus XP, avoiding grabbing the XP items and saving them for later. And boy, the later was quite something, as Shiekrunner gathered up 333% bonus XP and skyrocketed from level 47 to 61 in a couple of seconds.

And then, quite a few more dungeons later and some picking up the of the pre-cleared raid XP, the moment had arrived. Level 70!

In case you're wondering about the video length, a few of the raids were fast forwarded. And here's a more detailed breakdown of everything that went into the record, as Shiekrunner gave us a bit of an interview on the process:

We achieved this as a coordinated group consisting of 9 players. Here's a detailed breakdown of our strategy and team composition:

Dungeon Team:
Shiekrunner (me) - The leveling character
Nöxyi-Blackmoore - Level 70, iLvl 476
Cémix - Level 20 Monk
Lethestes-Blackmoore - Level 70, iLvl 343
Permokremixx-Steamwheedle Cartel

Raid Team:
Leonie-Blackmoore - Level 70, iLvl 476
Vashalla-Blackmoore - Level 70, iLvl 476
Lunites-Blackmoore - Level 70, iLvl 476
Nöxyi-Blackmoore - Level 70, iLvl 476
Gadriel-Blackmoore - Level 70, iLvl 470
Lethestes-Blackmoore - Level 70, iLvl 380
Shiekrunner (me) - The leveling character

Dungeon Strategy
For Scarlet Halls and Temple of the Jade Serpent, our Demon Hunter, Nöxyi-Blackmoore, performed speedrun skips. This allowed our Monk and DH to take branching paths for simultaneous boss kills.

Permokremixx had to create a new character each time we entered a raid  to keep us all under level 20 and avoid the slow dungeon, Stormstout Brewery.

We also had an additional player for instant queues into the dungeon and miscellaneous tasks, such as protecting the leveling character and trading items like gems.
Permokremixx and Lethestes queued as tank and healer, respectively, so our DH and Monk didn’t need to change specs every time we joined a dungeon.

Because of our optimizations, we could still queue for random heroics but only got the following good dungeons:

Temple of the Jade Serpent
Scarlet Monastery
Scarlet Halls

We were hoping to get Temple of the Jade Serpent and Scarlet Halls as often as possible as they were the fastest with the skips.

Raid Strategy

The players not participating in the dungeon were already inside the raid, clearing up to the first boss. This stacked the XP bonus, allowing us to finish with a 333% XP boost. At level 25, we joined Mogu'shan Vaults; at level 35, we moved to Heart of Fear; and at level 40, we entered Terrace of Endless Spring.

One tactic we used was avoiding looting most of the XP bonus items from dungeons, opting to have them sent by mail instead. We made sure to loot the Threads of Experience for additional XP% whenever possible. We then opened these items when we had our full XP potential, allowing us to level up 15 levels in around 10 seconds with a 333% increased XP boost.

Our guild, Tatortreiniger on Blackmoore, with fully geared MoP Remix characters and high-level cloaks, played a crucial role by sitting inside raids and clearing the raids fast.

Preparation Prior to the Run
Preparation included completing specific account-wide pet battle dailies on a non timerunning character that can be turned in on another character at any time via the quest log or more efficiently by using this macro:

/run local info; for i=1, C_QuestLog.GetNumQuestLogEntries() do info = C_QuestLog.GetInfo(i) if info and info.isAutoComplete then ShowQuestComplete(info.questID) end end
(This will turn in any quest that you can turn in via your quest log.)

So giant congratulations on this incredible feat, and there's even hints of it being improved on! And in case this wasn't insane enough for you, as Shiekrunner himself says, there is a potential 5-10 minute improvement possible, since this was the group's first real run of this strategy.

Be sure to check out more from Shiekrunner and the guild:

      In our latest story, we follow Solozerro, a player on a quest to solo Mythic Siege of Orgrimmar in MoP Remix!
      @solozerro often streams his progress, so  you can catch him on Twitch!
      So far, Solozerro has soloed five Siege of Orgrimmar bosses on Mythic difficulty in MoP Remix and released videos documenting every kill.
      Immerseus and Norushen
      The first two bosses were the easy ones when looking at pure DPS/HP checks. Solozerro tackled them early with an Item Level of 476 and a cloak with 400k stats. Both fights were long, but the incoming damage wasn't really significant.
      Fallen Protectors
      Fallen Protectors were a bit tricky. Solozerro managed to push them in tank spec during berserk at around 10% HP, but the berserk phase was rough due to the double stuns. He had to switch to DPS and figure out a way to phase Rook and Sun first, then stack them up for the He Softfoot phase.
      The boss cannot be soloed currently, so the player skipped Galakras.
      Shamans and Iron Juggernaut
      When talking about the next couple of bosses, Solozerro said, "here is where the fun begins." The DPS check to beat them before berserk is very high, so he had to min-max cooldown usage for over 20 minutes. One mistake could end in a wipe. For Iron Juggernaut, there was a 20-minute bleed effect or longer.
      As for the Shamans, they had the same stacking debuff that had to be kited while keeping track of the Mythic mechanic, according to Solozerro.
      What's Next?
      Right now, Solozerro is working on soloing General Nazgrim! He's doable, but you can't miss interrupts and need to constantly move because of the healing the adds provide.
      Solozerro's current item level is 476 with all stats capped. His daily routine includes clearing all LFRs, all raids, all dailies, and of course, the Troves Scenario on Isle of Thunder. After that, he farms rares on Timeless Isle!

      And for those curious, here are the player's cloak stats!

      We wish Solozerro the best of luck, and we'll be covering his progress here at Icy Veins too!

      Learn more about the Matrix Catalyst in the War Within that lets you transform non-set items into tier set pieces!
      You'll find the Matrix Catalyst in Dornogal, the capital city for both factions.

      Nearby, you'll see Custodian Khubon, the Catalyst Steward for the expansion.
      You can ask him about the Catalyst, though he's somewhat misguided. He believes the famed titan keepers crafted it, but we've had this for three expansions now, so we know the real story.

      To convert a non-set item into a set piece, you must insert an eligible Veteran track or higher Season 1 item, following a structure similar to the previous expansion.

      As for catalyst charges,  I think you will get your first charge when Season 1 starts on September 10 and every other week you will receive an additional charge.

      Larovus has hit the jackpot for the year! Both the rare Tusks of Mannoroth and the Kor'kron Juggernaut mount dropped from a single Mythic Garrosh kill.
      Fortunately, you can now kill Garrosh on a daily basis, but it still requires a lot of luck to loot both items simultaneously, as they have a drop rate of about 1%.

      Here's a close-up of the loot window. As you can see, Larovus has looted the Tusks of Mannoroth and the Kor'kron Juggernaut mount in one kill.

      Have you had any luck with double rare raid drops? Let me know in the comments below!

      The War Within Season 1 adds new kiss/curse affixes and here is a spreadsheet with class specializations that will benefit from the kiss portion of each affix.
      New Kiss/Curse Affixes in War Within Season 1
      Blizzard recently unveiled the following kiss/curse affixes making its way to Mythic+ in Season 1.
      Attuned - Non-boss enemies with mana inflict 20% more magic damage, but take 10% increased Nature damage and 30% increased damage from Bleed effects. Focused - Non-boss enemies with mana have 30% increased Haste, but take 10% increased Frost and Fire damage. Reckless - Non-boss enemies without mana ignore 20% armor with their attacks, but their armor is reduced by 30% and they take 10% increased Arcane damage. Thorned - Non-boss enemies without mana inflict Physical damage to their attackers when attacked, but take 10% increased Holy and Shadow damage. Which Classes/Specializations Benefit from the Kiss Portion the Most?
      If you read the affix tooltips, it is obvious that some classes will benefit more from their effect. For instance, during Reckless weeks, you want to bring an Arcane Mage, or a Balance Druid, and so forth.
      Denethar has created a useful spreadsheet covering which specs benefit from the affixes the most, you can find it here.

      The Prismatic Bauble toy is easier to purchase during this month! 
      Usually, the toy's available for 250,000 gold from the Mad Merchant who doesn't spawn often. However, during Pride Month, you can purchase Prismatic Bauble directly from Jepetto Joybuzz in Legion Dalaran, avoiding the long wait.
      The toy will still cost 250,000 Gold, though. You can find Jepetto Joybuzz at the Dalaran Toyworks.

      Happy Pride Month!
