So, Antien, a paladin on the Elune server, finally hit level 80! He’s someone I know in Real Life that just recently started playing the game. He took 18 days of /played time to level his paladin up to 80, and has only been playing WoW over the last couple months. It’s not a super fast amount of time, but he did one thing that I found particularly impressive.
Since Antien was a brand new player of the game, he wanted to see all the lower level 5-man dungeon content, but didn’t have many people to play with him at his level, so he went into the dungeons by himself on his lowbie paladin and solo’d the instances.
These levels are all approximate, and I’m pretty sure he’s disturbed that I actually recorded this all and kept it, but I thought it was a really great achievement that wasn’t captured by the achievement system so much. I wanted to be able to bring attention to what Antien was doing… He usually outleveled the instances by a bit, but he thought it was fun to go back through it. It usually took him a pretty long time to get through it by himself…
- Deadmines solo’d at level 30
- BFD = 40
- RFD = 45
- RFK = 46
- Scarlet Monestary = 47
- Uldaman = 49
- Ragefire Chasm = 51
- Zul Farak = 53
- Mara = 62
- BRD = 63
Antien also got the Ambasador title at level 58! After about 60, he decided to focus on getting through Outlands and Northrend faster, so he stopped playing around solo in the instance.sSo, he finally got to 80 over this weekend. Congrats!
Do you guys have any interesting stories of what you did to make leveling more fun?
