According to rumors, Blizzard is going to give the Battle for Azeroth expansion free of charge to all World of Warcraft: Classic players who manage to reach the highest level. In addition, the players receive a Level 110 boost, so that they can start immediately with the content of the latest expansion. This was stated in a message from the developer that has since been removed . Whether the boost actually comes is still unclear, but such a promotion fits well with the 15-year anniversary of the game.
For most World of Warcraft: Classic players, achieving this goal will take a while. It takes an average player between three and six months to reach the maximum level of 60. In contrast, a small group of fanatics is already the highest level, of which Jokerd was the first. The bald Gnome Mage was already known for its “AOE farming” techniques to reach the highest level as quickly as possible. In the end, 350,000 fans watched how he passed the finish line.
Within the first week, the guild known in the private server scene managed to beat the two available raids, Onyxia’s Lair and Molten Core. They too were known as fanatic players of the classic version of World of Warcraft.
World of Warcraft: Classic is a huge success, with record-breaking numbers of viewers on Twitch and long lines to be able to play the game at all. It seems that many players want to return to their youth, or try ‘Vanilla’ for the first time. An excellent opportunity for Blizzard to attract more attention to their current version of WoW.
