A few days ago World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Classic was the first expansion for WoW Classic. While some players set new goals at the time, another managed to end an insane level grind: bring 60 characters to level 60 – but without completing quests.

Almost a year and a half of playtime for 60 characters

Reddit user Rommildrey had the idea for such a project some time ago. At that time he began in World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor to bring 100 characters to the then maximum level of 100. But that didn’t really satisfy him, as the level experience was pretty easy and quick.

It is completely different in World of Warcraft: Classic, where the level phase is a whole lot tougher. So his goal was clear early on and his motivation was high:

“I was motivated all along because I knew I could [das Levelprojekt] wanted to do. I knew it had that appeal and could turn me away from doing big, crazy projects like this.”

In addition to the already ambitious goal, Rommildrey also sat down the requirement to forego quests altogether. Instead, he farmed experience points exclusively with the help of the recovery bonus and by killing enemies in the open world. As soon as the bonus expired, he logged out in a tavern and switched to the next character.

Can such a method be fun? Yes. At least for Rommildrey, because he loves to grind and do other things on the side. “Running from opponent to opponent meant I had a lot of free time to watch series and films, listen to music and discover new music.”

Speaking of time: According to his own statement, Rommildrey spent a whopping 316 days of game time in World of Warcraft: Classic. As some Reddit users calculate, this corresponds to a proud 12 to 14 hours a day and that for about a year and a half.

New destination for Burning Crusade?

With the start of World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Classic there is theoretically a new goal for Rommildrey: to bring 70 characters to level 70 without a boost. However, he has not yet finally decided whether he will tackle this project.
